But when he is blackmailed into ferreting out the secrets of the Duke of Wey at a house party at the duke’s lavish estate, he finds his resolve crumbling. Belle is everything that is right and good in the world. He cannot betray her.

As her father’s enemies grow more daring, Belle and Owen must work together to protect all they hold dear. When his own secrets are revealed, can Owen convince the lady who’s never heard no to say yes to him?

Blackmailed to uncover the secrets of Belle’s father, the Duke of Wey, Owen had no choice but to work his way into the good graces of the family. charming the ladies with his pretty speech and flattering manners. It was that or losing the only one he cared about. His job was made so much easier when Belle chose him as a matrimonial target for her dear friend…

As he began to see each of them as more than a means to an end, he began to care for them and was torn between protecting Jasper and proving himself not to be the rogue he had always been.

Lady Belle was so adorable! I loved how she cared so deeply for her sisters and her friend, seeking their good more than her own. While unquestionably lovely, she wasn’t vain and never seemed to rely on her looks to gain her anything. She was so selfless as she fought the attraction to Owen, believing him to be the best fit for her friend.

Never Romance a Rogue is a delightful tale, blending mystery, adventure, and romance with the right amount of humor. Readers who enjoy historical fiction will enjoy this wonderful story! Be sure to read the books in the Fortune’s Brides series in order for the full experience. And stay tuned for the release of Never Love a Lord, scheduled to release on November 7, 2022.
