Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Never Rescue a Rogue by Virginia Heath today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
Why on earth would she want to kiss him when he vexed her so?
Diana Merriwell and Giles Sinclair only tolerate one another for the sake of their nearest and dearest. Everyone believes that they are meant to be together, but Diana and Giles know that it is animosity, not attraction, that fuels their barbed exchanges. Anyway, Diana loves her freedom too much to give it up for marriage, and Giles is happily wedded to his bachelor lifestyle.
After Giles’ curmudgeonly father, the Duke of Harpenden, unexpectedly turns up his toes, it’s only a matter of time before the circumstances of his only son’s birth are revealed. With the threat of blackmail hanging over him, Giles must uncover the truth, or he and all those who depend on him will be ruined.
As Giles and Diana dive into his family’s past, the attraction that they insisted wasn’t there proves impossible to ignore. It seems that the future of the Sinclair estate isn’t the only thing on the line…
As ever Virginia Heath treated me to a story filled with wit, romance and characters that captured my attention from the very first page. I loved spending time and getting to know both Diana and Giles. The way they sparked off each other was written so well. This showed in their interactions and in their strong, chemistry filled moments. I couldn’t help but smile and root for them. Even with their bickering and the trading of insults it all combined to create an engaging and entertaining story.
The story moved at a lovely pace and I really enjoyed the moments of drama, the romance and the scrapes that the characters found themselves in. It’s safe to say there were a few secrets that needed to be unravelled and some that would be safer hidden. I also have to give a special mention to Dalton, he brought such a fun element to this story.
Never Rescue a Rogue is the second book in The Merriwell Sisters series but I found it did work really well as a standalone. However to get a better feel for the family dynamic I would suggest picking up book one especially as it is a brilliant book too. Never Rescue a Rogue was a fun, enemies to lovers historical romance and a real joy to read!
When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Twenty-five books and three Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominations later, and it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
