This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Can two star-crossed lovers come together—until death do they part?
Viscount Hart Highgate has decided to put his rakish ways behind him and finally get married. He may adore a good brandy or a high-speed carriage race, but he takes his duties as heir to the earldom seriously. Now all he has to do is find the right kind of woman to be his bride—ideally, one who’s also well-connected and well-funded. . .
Meg Timmons has loved Hart, the brother of her best friend, ever since she was an awkward, blushing schoolgirl. If only she had a large dowry—or anything to her name at all. Instead, she’s from a family that’s been locked in a bitter feud with Hart’s for years. And now she’s approaching her third London season, Meg’s chances with him are slim to none. Unless a surprise encounter on a deep, dark night could be enough to spark a rebellious romance. . .for all time?
The Right Kind of Rogue is a sparkling Regency romance from Valerie Bowman!

4 Stars! This was a good story! Poor Meg, she's a wallflower who loves Hart but he barely notices her! I don't like how everything that goes wrong could've been set straight with one short conversation. If Hart would've listened to 1 of 4 people for 5 seconds, this whole story would've been cleared up & saved Meg a lot of tears & sadness! Communication is key in relationships people- take note!! No one listens & everyone is stubborn! Meg's 'friend' Lucy, was a good friend 90% of the time but when Lucy started doing things the way she wanted to instead of listening to Meg, I really wanted to slap her! I got pretty into this story & I felt so bad for Meg & so mad at Hart, that my eyes started to water a bit! I tend to hold a grudge so I wasn't able to understand how Meg was able to let everything between her & Hart (& even her & Lucy!) go so easily! That might just be me thinking it was all solved too fast/easily. Other than that, great story! I love a book that I can get so lost in that I get upset & angry & teary eyed & happy just from reading it!
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!*
I received an advanced review copy of this book.
Valerie Bowman’s book never disappoint. They are always engaging and entertaining and I find her writing flow was making for an enjoyable read.
This book is part of a series but can be read on its own without the reader feeling like they missed anything. Hart and Meg have appeared in earlier books and if the reader wants to see more of them, I suggest reading the earlier books.
Meg has always loved Hart, who has never really noticed her. Hart has his vices but has decided it was time to leave that behind to get married. I don’t want to give spoilers. I liked these two characters as a couple. They’re both stubborn and this causes clashes between them. I felt at times Hart could be over the top but with his background and temperament, I felt it worked in this story.
I always enjoy Valerie Bowman’s books and fluid writing style and recommend this book.
The right kind of rogue
The book is well written and hard to put down. All my feelings came out while reading this. Meg sets out to get Hart to marry her. Her friends jump in to help her catch him. Unfortunately things don’t go smoothly. Great read.
