I was really looking foward to reading this novella, the cover is beautiful the book title and blurb intrigued me and I love Historicals, but this story just didn’t work for me.

The names of the two MC’s are never revealed until around 70% in, you only know them as The Gentleman and the Rogue and I found that became tiresome quickly. It also made it extremely difficult to connect or care about the MC’s and to some degree the story. I persevered,

I bought this book because I was intrigued as to what another author will do with a title of one of my favorite historical romances of all times. Of courses titles do repeat and many times too, it is just I am firmly associating this title with one specific book :)

The Gentleman is eventually revealed, though his revelation is largely underwhelming as his real identity had no prior role.
The Rogue is a thief, but apparently stealing to save the evil gang leaders from getting their hands on information to complete their task. He is the Rogue and also appeared as himself, so his ultimate revelation did have
