This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A LORD WITH LEGENDARY CONTROL…
Merciless and powerful, Ashton Lennox is a wealthy man because he puts business before everything else, especially love. As a member of the infamous League of Rogues, he’s no stranger to scandal. His bedroom conquests are as legendary as his fortune. As he searches for a way to bring down an old enemy bent on destroying the lives of his friends, the last thing he needs is a Scottish widow getting in his way.
A FIERY WOMAN WHO WON’T BACK DOWN…
The daughter of a Scottish lord with a dark and treacherous past, Rosalind Melbourne has spent years distancing from her past. After escaping her tyrannical father and marrying an aging English lord, she has become a powerful widow with a business empire at her command. Her business dealings are everything to her, leaving her no time for love. Especially not with her business rival Ashton, a man with a scandalous reputation as striking as his blue eyes.
A GAME OF WITS TURNS TO A GAME OF SEDUCTION…
Ashton is fascinated by the strong-willed, intelligent and sensual lady who, up until now, had outsmarted him at every turn. Rosalind wishes she could deny she is falling for the brooding, handsome baron. How can she possibly trust him when doing so could cost her what she values most—her freedom? When Ashton discovers Rosalind might hold the key to saving the League of Rogues, he knows he will do anything to woo his wicked lass. As their pasts return to haunt them and dark forces rise to keep them from exposing a deadly spymaster, their game of love turns to a game of survival…
Warning: This book includes a brooding baron who’s wild in bed, a crafty Scottish lass who never knows when to quit, a wicked game of strip chess, and a merry band of rogues whose first instinct is to run they hear wedding bells ring.
A Nice Read
Like what seems to happen in all romance novels, I take issue when women just 'melt' at a mans touch and cant seem to maintain use of their brain or self respect, but I felt like the female protagonist in this story did have a little bit more willpower in her, which was nice. Overall a good story.
Great New Addition To Series
This is book four in Lauren Smith's League Of Rogues series. Each book has been great, so I highly recommend the entire series.
Oh my -- I absolutely LOVED Ashton. He is the rogue who was always in control of himself and whatever situation he found himself in. Every move is calculated, evaluated, planned and then executed with precision. So, when a little Scots widow (Rosalind Melbourne) starts competing (and winning) with him in various business deals, he decides he better check things out. Of course, he finds that she has ties to the villain of the series. In order to be able to legally check her books and other business dealings, he buys up her debts and gains control over her businesses.
To say that she wasn't pleased is putting it mildly. She heads out to his estate to clear things up and the story goes from there. I won't tell you the details, because that would spoil the story an you really need to read it for yourself!!! Let's just say that their trip to the HEA is far from smooth. It includes deadly illnesses, near drownings, kidnappings and shootings. It is definitely far from smooth and steady.
They almost get the bad guy in the end -- but -- of course, if they did that there wouldn't be any reason for the next two books in the series. I'm looking forward to the book featuring Charles because he is the most damaged of the lot of them and I'd love for him to find a happy ending. I believe there are only supposed to be two more books in the series, but I'd sure like to see HEA's for Rosalind's brothers (I really liked them), Ashton's sister and Cedric's sister (actually I think she'll get her HEA with Jonathon).
I surely hope you'll read this book and this series because all of them are good.
Addicted to These Rogues
I am addicted to this series...these Rogues...and their adventures. I always recommend them!
Ashton Lennox always prided himself for his astute business practices. His skills were finely tuned and honed -- and he always got his deal. That is until Lady Rosalind Melbourne came upon the scene. Her savvy business acumen sparked more than his interest.
Could Ashton finally have met the one woman that could inspire him to the one thing he has avoided at all costs...marriage??
Wonderfully written. Great story - full of twists, turns, and fun. I cannot get enough of these Rogues. Five stars! Karen
