The Angel In My Arms is the second book in the Regency Rogues Series. After enjoying the first one, I was very excited to get started on this story. The Angel In My Arms is where we get to know the rogue "Marcus". Marcus has recently become injured so his commanding officer sends him to his country home, to investigate the smuggling operation there and that it might be related to Napoleon. In the beginning Marcus is doubtful that there is any real mission, but when a young boy ends up murdered,...more
I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website.


THE ANGEL IN MY ARMS is the second book in Regency Rogues Series and continues with adventures of another Young Corinthian, Marcus Maxwell, the Earl of Weston.

Our hero's origins play heavy in this story. As a young lad, his growing up was split between the Highlands and England. He always knew that he didn't fit in, that his English blood wasn't quite blue enough and would never let him be a true Highlande...more

The second book in Regency Rogues series contains more action, suspense and mystery than its predecessor, The Devil in Disguise and more humor than I thought possible from one character. Sarah Tisdale was a delight. Smart, blunt, outspoken and so awkward that she sometimes comes across as addled. Without meaning to, she amuses to no end with her verbal diarrhea that appears at the most inappropriate times. Her antics are wild and uncoordinated that one can't hel...more
After reading Ms Sloanes debut novel, The Devil in Disguise, I was a bit disappointed with it, mostly with the editing of the novel that I think hinder my opinion of it a bit. Still I was looking forward to trying out the next book in the series, The Angel in My Arms and I am happy to say Stephanie Sloane delivered a good book with a good story and no major editing issues this time!

Miss Sarah Tisdale is a delightful heroine! She is bold, feisty, a bit silly and flighty and I really enjoyed her!...more

Review: After having read The Devil in Disguise, I was torn if I wanted to continue on with this series. I was partially let down with Devil, but I reminded myself that it was Ms Sloane’s debut and things could get better. So, I picked up The Angel in My Arms and started reading.

From page one, I was drawn more into this story than I was before, which was a huge relief for me. We met our hero Marcus in the...more
This story belongs to Marcus and Sarah. Marcus is a member of the Young Corinthians and was sent to his home estate to recuperate from a leg injury received in the line of duty. He is sent there also to continue the investigation into missing emeralds destined for Napoleon to finance his takeover of the continent. Sarah lives in his home town. Things get complicated since her 12 year-old brother is involved in the smuggling operation which is far more serious than anyone believed. It's all tied...more

Oooohhhhh... right. I hate when I don't review books right after I read them. Anyway.

Okay, so at the end of the last book (not too much of a spoiler, I promise), Marcus MacInnes is injured (shot in the leg), and so in this book, he's recovering. The boss, Carmichael, knows that Marcus will go totally stir-crazy if he just lies around in bed until he's recuperated, so he sends him to investigate a smuggling rumor near Marcus's family home out in the country. I don't think Carmichael really though...more

This is the second book in Stefanie Stoane’s Young Corinthian series and it was wonderful. Marcus MacInnes, the Earl of Weston, meets his heroine, Sarah, when her gigantic dog knocks him flat on his back at the pond on his estate. Sarah has been swimming with her 12 year brother and is dripping wet and covered with mud. Weston’s estate is located on the coast of England and his assignment is to locate the band of smuggler who are filling Napoleon’s coffers. The most of the men in the village see...more
Marcus never felt at home, he's half Scottish - a Highlander- and half English and he was never accepted by either. When the agency sends him to keep an eye on a smuggling ring in Dorset, near the village his mother grew up in and where the townspeople are not too fond of him, he doesn't jump with joy on the idea but he does his duty. There he meets Sarah Tisdale, beautiful, lush, adventurous, and with a klutzy quality to her that he finds endearing.

I enjoyed both the romance and spy/smuggling i...more
This book will keep you laughing the whole time! I loved the humor in it! In this Regency romance you meet Sarah and Marcus! Sarah is not your typical female. She is courageous, funny, intelligent and witty! She cuts past all of Marcus's defenses and makes him realize that maybe being loved for who you are isn't such a bad thing! Marcus is a half Scottish highlander and half English gentlemen.... Interesting mix huh? He is always trying to find his place. Around Sarah he can finally let down his...more
The first book in this series I wasn't to sure about but after reading this one, this series has found its place in my "Will Buy and Continue" list. I am curious about this author and look forward to seeing how each story will progress and strengthen.


There is excitement, danger and a good plot. You can relate with the characters.

On the down side:

The sex scenes are seriously lacking and unbelievable! The tension and build up is there between the characters but when it comes to follow thru...more

I received the book as a present from Stefanie Sloane and I want to thank her for those three great books.
The second book in Regency Rogues series contains more action, suspense and mystery than its predecessor, The Devil in Disguise. It's an easy to read and rather captivating story. Smart and often funny, the book combines intrigue, suspense, and romance that make one keep turn the pages until the end of the story. All the characters are written so good, with their own life stories, that one e...more

I just finished The Angel in My Arms by Stefanie Sloane, which is the second book in her Regency Rogues series. The Angel in My Arms is a rollicking adventure filled with mischief, murder and just enough of the mushy stuff. Stephanie's heroine Sarah is an original, who is honest, funny and whose unique take on things made me laugh out. Very enjoyable read, and I can't wait for The Sinner Who Seduced Me.
I did enjoy this, but it seemed a little like I was dropped in the middle of the story. I felt like I was missing some parts of the story/background.. I loved Sarah and she and Marcus made a great couple. I loved the fact that Sarah was able to trust Marcus and wait for all the facts.
I actually found this book a great, exciting read! After Stefanie Sloane's first book, I was very excited to read another. This book lacked the grammatical errors I felt riddled the first book, and the romance/plot line was more put together, I felt. Truly a great read!
This second book in the series was fantastic from beginning to end! The main female Sarah was hilarously outspoken and I loved Marcus' scottish burr when flustered!!

Had me laughing out loud, just like the first one. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

This was a very enjoyable Regency series
Regency romance with sex. This is #2 in a series, though it can be read as a stand alone.

I bought this as a $1.99 kindle read. I'm glad I didn't pay any more for it. First, I hated the female lead. She's described as spunky & smart. Then there's a scene where the hero finds her crawling around in the grass trying not to be seen by another suitor. Really? She ponders how many times the hero has "dipped his wick". I don't know about anyone else, but how the hell does a gently bred Regency mi...more
The first half of this book, with the flirting and the multiple meet-cute(s) between the hero and heroine was a solid 5 rating for me. I really enjoyed it and loved the hero and heroine and they felt so three dimensional and real to me. And then the last 1/3 happened with the pirates and the smuggling and the shoddy kidnapping attemot and ugh, it dropped it down to 3 stars for me ((view spoiler)...more
Great heroine. Easy read.

This was a very cute book! I've been sitting here for a while, hovering between 3 and 4 stars, so I'm giving it a 3.5. This is the first book I've read by Ms. Sloane, but it likely won't be the last. There wasn't much chemistry between the hero/heroine, in my opinion, but the secondary characters and the smuggling mystery more than made up for it. It's funny, sometimes I find myself reading romance and sort of skimming through the gushy bits, and dwelling on the suspenseful plots. This is one of...more

The Window Seat
Thank goodness for second chances. After finishing book one of the Regency Rogues series, I questioned if I wanted to continue on to the next book. I felt the character development had been very weak, there were problems with the lack of tension in the kidnapping plot, and I wasn’t sold on yet another group of titled gentlemen being secret agents for the crown. Was I ready to pick up another title in the series and find myself either bored or questioning why I gave it another shot? I am so glad...more
The "plot" of this book was, at best, convoluted, and there's not really a lot to the hero, Marcus. However, the heroine, Sarah, made this book for me. She was refreshing, even if her unique charms bordered on anachronistic. I found myself amused by her, annoyed by her, proud of her, and impressed with her. She was just so very sure of who she was, even if she had a tendency to assume that exactly who she was mightn't be all that desirable.
Stopped on page 138. Had hope for this story, but found a lot of it repeating itself or narrating things that were obvious, as if to fill pages to make the story longer. The world has too many beautifully written books to waste time on one I dislike.
Too boring.
Starts off charming and cute enough, but that wears thin after a while. The mystery plot doesn't make a whole lot of sense and doesn't work too well to drive the book forward. There was a lot of useless angst and melodrama, made all the worse because I kind of didn't care about the characters. Basically I like it because the chantey I sing Baby of Wench to sleep with appears in it. WELP.

“The bizarre quality of the moment was not lost on Marcus. Here he stood, clothing torn and mauled by what was clearly the result of a misguided romantic encounter between a canine and large bear. The female standing in front of him was in absolute and, not to put too fine a point on it, scandalous disarray. And a devilish sprite was performing polite introductions in the middle of the wood.

It was of Shakespearean proportions. A farce, to be sure.

He should be appalled. Any man of his standing would be.

But he was delighted.”
