The Rogue Report

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! It's been an unexpectedly long week here, but I'm hoping next week is a little slower and easier. I'm working on a couple of July romances at the moment, to share with you next week, but in the meantime, I have a last two June books that arrived earlier this week to get off my desk first.

Over the Line Over the Line (St. Martin's) by Cindy Gerard is up first with the latest in her Bodyguards series. Jason Wilson needs a major change in his life. Taking on a job for his army buddy Nolan Garrett seems like a very good way to do it. Janey Perkins needs a bodyguard when a former stalker is released from prison, and, as it turns out, he's not the only one after the rock star. In theory, this seems like a story I could really like. In reality, it isn't so. Janey's got plenty of conflict to deal with, showing readers just how strong she can be. Jason, while he's got plenty going on, trying to protect Janey, doesn't have much real conflict as far as the romance goes, and, when he states his issues to her late in the book, it sounds pretty lame. Also, there are some secondary characters with points of view early on who disappear as the story goes on. A little odd, I thought. For fans of the series, this one may hold up, but for me, it didn't. It's earned two and a half of Cupid's five arrows.

The Rogue Report The Rogue Report (St. Martin's) by Barbara Dawson Smith is next. Lady Julia Corwyn is used to life as a societal outcast by now, raising her illegitimate son and running a school for the children of unmarried women. But it seems that someone has discovered her secret. Or one of them. Jack William Mansfield, Earl of Rutledge, has narrowed down the list of possible identities of the author of a notorious newsheet sent to unmarried ladies, which outlines the follies of Society's 'gentlemen'--a newspaper that ruined his chances of marrying the proper woman to solve his money problems. So Jack poses as a math teacher and gets himself hired at Julia's school to try to prove she's the author. This one is cute and sweet, and, at times, rather funny. If you want something light and easy to while away a little reading time, this is the one to pick up. I'm giving it four arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
