The Right Kind of Rogue

by Valerie Bowman

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! Valerie Bowman’s Playful Brides novels are:

“Wholly satisfying.”—USA Today “Smart and sensual…readers will be captivated.”—RT Book Reviews “Smoldering.” —Booklist

Review & Comments

  • Margaret Sholders

    I like to read Valerie's books. I grab all the books I can review! This is a kind of circle story to read, for me. Meg loved Hart since she was a child as she played with Sarah, who is Hart 's sister. Meg's family is broke and fight. Hart finally decided to get married for an heir, that really will be a home body so Hart won't have to. That is not Meg! Hart now knows who is Meg, and it wasn't the child Meg. Everyone just knows they belong together and she has everyone to give her their choices! Finally it is time for the Scandal! You will have to read to the end to see how it ends. Psss- Scotland comes in. Major Spoiler! I love Scotland! Check out this story line and don't let it slip away! If you choose it you won't regret it! Enjoy reading this book but have tissues close!.

    The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman Playful Brides #8 Lucy has loved Hart, her best friend’s brother, since she was sixteen. Their parents have been enemies forever. In her third year on the marriage market in London and the season beginning she hears Hart is finally ready to find a wife so she enlists the aid of her friend Lucy in finding a way to have Hart see her as his potential wife. With Lucy’s machinations often going awry, both sets of parents creating trouble, Meg definitely wanting Hart and Hart definitely against love or devious women the stage is set for problems aplenty…and that is just what happens…until both Hart and Meg find a way to a HEA. This book was so-so for me. I ended up skimming parts of it because it seemed contrived and at times silly. I had trouble believing the story, the reactions, the interactions, the idea that Meg would share so much and trust those she shared with implicitly. I couldn’t see a 29 year old man being so immature and doing and saying and behaving as he often did. I had trouble understanding why Meg could love Hart and hold a torch for for him for four or five years. I guess it takes all types to make the world go around but Meg and Hart made me feel there has to be more. And, that said, I looked back over books I have read in this series and found that I loved and rated one five stars so will continue on hoping there will be another such book to read in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3 Stars.

    This was a fun read. Meg is an interesting woman, very determined, although she was not prepared for what she got. Hart allowed his past hurts to color his views of woman. I wanted to smack him for not seeing what was right in front of him. Their coming together was well worth the read, and I found this a hard book to put down. This is my unsolicited review of a story that I received through Netgalley.

    Miss Margaret Timmons has been in love with her best friend's brother since she was sixteen. The problem is the difference in their social standing and the fact that their parents are mortal enemies. Her father has gambled away the family fortune and her mother is a very bitter woman who takes out her frustration on everyone around her. Viscount Hart Highgate has decided to give in to parental pressure and find a bride. Someone he can put up with long enough to get an heir and still carry on with his life. His father has drummed it in to him to never give his heart because women will just trample it. Our heroine has a friend that is known to be a matchmaker, perhaps she can help. Or perhaps she will mess everything up. This is a very emotional story with as many tears as laughs. You will want to smack our hero several times for being pig headed. You can quite easily read it on its own, but it will tease you with the previous stories from the series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and the previous books. I'm not sure if there will be more from this series but I will always look for more from this author.

    THE RIGHT KIND OF ROGUE by Valerie Bowman is book 8 in the "Playful Brides" series. This is the story of Viscount Hart Highgate and Meg Timmons. I have read (and LOVED) the other book in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Meg is a spinster wallflower of sorts with her a father that gambles. Meg has always loved Hart who was her friend's brother. But their parents do not get along and in addition they are on different social levels. Hart's sister does try to put them together. This is Meg's third attempt and the marriage mart and Hart first attempt to settling down and take his family publications to heart. I did enjoy seeing their story come together!.
