What is a man to do when the love of his life is strictly off limits? In this charming romance, we find out exactly what. The Rogue Steals a Bride was a wonderful read, just perfect!

I was a bit worried going into this book. I've read another book that featured a heroine intent on marrying only a titled gentleman. And I didn't like that book. At all. So, I was worried that the same thing would happen in this book. Thankfully, it turns out I didn't have to worry. This book was an absolutely fantas

THE ROGUE STEALS A BRIDE by Amelia Grey is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #6 in "The Rogue Dynasty",but can be read as a stand alone. This is the last and final in this series,and brings the series to an end and everything together. This is Matson and Sophia's story. Miss Sophia Hart is determined to fulfill her death bed promise to her father to marry a titled gentleman.

The Rogue Steals a Bride was a tough book for me to review as I had a tough time finishing it. There was nothing offensive about the story and the writing itself was pretty good. No, my problems stemmed from the behavior of one of the main characters and how contrived the conflict was. The back cover blurb gives a hint of what problem is keeping the hero and heroine apart and I thought I had it in me to deal with a young woman trying to marry up while falling in love with a mere Mister.

I’m feeling good today! Even though I stayed up all night finishing this book at 4 in the morning and feeling all giddy and happy inside….I fell in love with this book! This was my first read of any Amelia Grey books and it’s the 6th but also the final book to an amazing Dynasty.

Here we have the lovely Miss Sophia Hart, heiress to a shipping company, taking the London season by storm. Every eligible male/gentleman wants her hand in marriage an

Deliciously wicked, this is one historical romance you don't want to miss! Taken from my review at

At the age of twenty, Sophia Hart, an heiress of Shevington Shipping, had already missed two Seasons due to her father’s illness and subsequent death. So her two aunts and her guardian, Sir Randolph, are anxious for her to find a husband and marry by Fall. Her father had always longed for a title, but had not even been able to purchase one.

The Rogue Steals a Bride is the sixth book in the Rogues' Dynasty series by Amelia Grey. This regency historical romance series is most likely best read in order, but this is the only book I have read from the series and think that it could stand well on its own. Matson Brentwood has finally met the woman of his dreams. He is practically obsessed with the red-haired and feisty Sophia Hart, but he knows she is out of his reach because she is ward of the man he is sworn to hate, and she has her ow ...more

Review from Backchatting Books

The wealthy and beautiful Miss Sophia Hart wants a husband and only a titled one will do. She swore to her father that she would fulfil his dream and become a member of the aristocracy. Sophia is very attracted to Matson Brentwood, her guardian’s illegitimate son. Even though he is a highly successful businessman and charming, his ancestry makes a marriage impossible.

If I wanted to praise Sophia I could write about the strength of her conviction and willingness to a

Sigh…sometimes you just need a good rake.

I loved how Miss Gray brought in a real rogue for this book. Matson isn’t your typical run of the mill rake. He has a past, but to be completely honest, he was such a gentleman, I couldn’t figure out what people had against him. His character was beautifully written. I was fangirling the minute we went into his POV…and maybe that’s why I had a bit of troub

Sophia's promise to her father is the barrier between her character and the reader. Initially, Sophia seems to posses strong convictions and an admirable amount of honour in sticking to the promise she made. However, after awhile she starts to become a little tiresome and stubborn. If the reader had been privy to a few more doubts and waverings on the part of Sophia I think this impression would have been softened somewhat, but for me for a lot of the book she merely comes across as a little imm ...more

Ok maybe 3.5 stars

I like to read historical romances once in a while because the absurdity of the traditions and norms of the "ton" makes it quite interesting.
I find all the mechanics and antics of the "mating" parties of the season hilarious and entertaining at the same time. And this book was no exception.
I found Sophia quite a scandalous character for her time. I mean, what she did on that boat.. Oh no girl... Really? Your first time? Not even in my time that would've been acceptable!

I didn't think it would take me this long to put a review up for this book. I won an ARC of this book from goodreads giveaway. I remember reading the first three book in the series but then I forgot to go read the other books.

I thought this book would not take me this long to finish because the synopsis caught my attention and seemed like something I really would love to read. I do enjoy this book but not as I would hope because of the heroine, Miss Sophia Hart's aunts. Her aunts, especially Jun

I received this from a friend who won it off GoodReads First Look

This was a fun, silly read. It was a quick read, so a good one for the beach.

Sophia is new to England, she's come from America to honor a deathbed promise to her father- to wed a title. There's just one problem. The only man she's attracted to is her guardian's bastard son Matson Brentwood. And Matson doesn't have a title.

While I enjoyed reading this I wasn't too keen on several elements that I felt distracted from the story. The

Amelia Grey's books are always so cute and this one did not disappoint.

This book is the last in the Rogue series. The 3 first are loosely connected to these, and the 3 last about three brothers. Now it's Matson's turn. A rich young gentleman who comes to London and scandal breaks. He looks like someone else, ohhh his mum had an affair. To makes things more complicated he falls for a young woman, who is the ward of his "father." Should we make it even more complicated? Yes why not. The lady in qu

The last in the series. A great series it was. I loved that Matson knew what he wanted and went after it. Sophia did also and their love affair was great. I liked the secret meetings. Having her Aunts being twins and Matson and Iverson Twins was a great story line. Even though one of the Aunts was nice and the other wasn't. I had hoped in the end Mae would find a love interest. But a great way to end the part Randolph Gibson played throughout the entire six books. I also liked it that the brothe ...more

I enjoyed this book. It was a nice, light readable book. I liked the fact that it strayed a bit from what I think of as traditional Recency. It seems to me most illegitimate people in books work hard to fight for what is theirs. Not so much these characters. This was a Perils of Pauline story. Heroine Sofia obeys her vow to marry a Title. Will she ruin her life? Or the Hero Matson who is untitled and wants nothing to do with his true, natural father. Will he get his girl? This was a quick read f ...more

What an enthralling story. I have not read any of the books in this series, but it doesn't matter. This book is completely stand alone and quite the tale. It's going to be one of my faves in the historical romance genre. The dynamic twin aunt Mae and June were quite the characters. I found them silly and endearing. Matson is swoon worthy and even Sophia was such an admirable woman. This was a great tale, and if you like Historicals, I think you're going to really like this book. Each character i ...more

A low three for me. I don't think I've read any of the other books in is series, and while they sound intriguing i am not sure if I will read them. I enjoyed this book til about halfway through, then consummation happened in a way I find to be completely unbelievable. I questioned the motivation for both characters, as neither seemed to want something permanent with the other, so I don't really know why they decided to make that connection, it seemed a little far fetched.

This book was so boring. I mustard through it hoping the characters would eventually grab my attention but to no avail. It seemed like each chapter was repetitive. The same things were being said over and over and over chapter after chapter. I wouldn't recommend this book, I don't have anything nice or surprising to say about any of the characters. Matson didn't even come off sexy or heroic. I wasn't a big fan of Sophia either...wishy washy self.

Basically a DNF for me. I should have remembered and checked my database as this is pretty much the same reaction I had to a previous book. I just did not find anything interesting in either the H/h. Sophia came across as a spoiled, self-centered child...and did not show her supposed intelligence at all. Matson I liked a bit more, but never really saw a reason to keeping reading about him. I am sure others will like the book; it just wasn't for me.

A very pleasing novel featuring Sophia, on the market for a titled husband. Instead she finds Matson, untitled and holding a grudge against Sophia's guardian. There are plenty of difficulties for these characters to sort out as they become more and more emotionally invested in each other. This is a novel packed full of parties, suitors and the extravagances of the Ton.

I just wasn't totally crazy about this book. One major problem -- the scene in the rowboat. Really? I know that this was the end of a series. I just seemed like some issues were never "finished." I liked the characters and the story was interesting, but the things that didn't work for me really hurt the book.

I was not as pleased with this story as I wanted to be. I sort of felt that Ms. Grey rushed us to the end of this series. I thoroughly the original three books. There were good scenes, interesting interaction with the couples, good dialogue. I did not feel the same about Matson and Sophia.

While Sophie is a shallow heroine for turning down love for a title, at least she comes to her senses. A decent love story.
