A 1.5, but I'll be kind and round up.

Last year I severely curtailed the amount of Kindle freebies I downloaded, and a much higher quality reading year ensued. This year, I completely ignored that fact when I was sent a link to Book Bub and went to town on the download button. Rogue’s Honor was the first of that bunch of freebies and doesn’t bode particularly well for my enjoyment of the rest. It wasn’t written so poorly as to be offensive to my eyes, but it didn’t really have much going for it e

Rating 3.5

This was a good book, I enjoyed the plot, it was interesting and different in its own way.

Lady Pearl is tired of all the matchmaking her stepmother forces her to make conversations with. If there is one thing I love about Pearl, it's her independence. She relies on no one and doesn't let others, particularly men tell her how to live her life.
Pearl also likes to learn academically, which is unheard of in a lady of her position.
Which is what leads her to make a plan. In order to stop

"I have behaved rather . . . unwisely."

Seems to be a running theme for the whole book.

Decent premise. It started off rather well, then plunged into the gutter. One doesn't have to act on every single, tiny urge they have. I'm not a fan of sex in my books. That's not why I read. That aside, it was just plain stupid. One doesn't have to be compromised to be ruined. If you want to render yourself unmarriageable, you have to be caught. Why sneak around and hide it making sure no one sees? All you ha

What a delightful take

A thief and a lady. When Pearl decides to escape into the London streets she meets a man as she is working at a party. With no where to stay he offers his couch at his place. As time goes on she learns this rogue of a man is of higher class, a Duke to be exact and then the tale takes a turn.

A Match made in Heaven with two Do-Gooders

Set in London in 1816, this is the story of Lady Pearl Moreston and Luke St. Clair. The physical attraction was instantaneous for Lady Pearl and Luke. They met when both were in disguise, he as a man of Seven Dials, living fairly well as he steals from the rich to help the poor, and she as a poor maid to learn to understand the poor. Two do-gooders who found each other one night in London.

Lady Pearl is anxious to be “ruined” so that her stepmother will s

Rogue's Honor was another delightful well written Historical Romance by Brenda Hiatt. I loved the H/H Luke di Santo/ Earl of Hardwyce and Lady Pearl Moreston daughter of the Duke of Oakshire. Both characters were intelligent and enjoyable characters too read. I like the way all the characters were written and the back story of why Luke became The Saint of Seven Dials. Stealing from the Rich and giving to the Poor was a creative storyline. Pearl was a real treasure to read. She is everything you ...more

A rags to riches hero story.
This was such a fun book to read! Loved the heroine, Pearl she was smart, funny, and strong, not a crybaby simpering heroine at all! The hero was sexy and smart and witty. They had some great chemistry together, and a couple of nicely written sex scenes, (not erotica). There was lots and lots of dialogue throughout the entire book, and it was not full of filler nonsense. The story line and plot were great and the writing was fantastic the entire story flowed very nice

The year is 1816, the British troops are back from the war and Napoleon is safely confined to the distant island of Elba. London is coming back to life. For some the times are good and for others they are bad and for either the future prospects won’t be changing anytime soon.
Lady Pearl Moreston, daughter of the Duke of Oakshire, has passed the traditional age for a young girl to wed. This isn’t due to a lack of suitors. She would be hard put to count, on both hands, the marriage proposals she ha

This is book 1 in Ms. Hiatt's Saints of Seven Dials series. It was okay. It started out very slow, and then got better around page 40. Then got slow again, then better. So, this book felt like a roller coaster. This takes place in Regency England with Lady Pearl Moreston as the heroine and Luke St. Clair (or is that his real name) as the hero. The hero is a Robin-Hood like figure (although I thought it could have been written better). He falls in love with Pearl when he thinks she is nothing mor ...more

A very nice story

This was a very good story. Luke St.Clair was the Saint of Seven Dials, a modern day Robin Hood. Lady Pearl was not going to be forced into a marriage she didn't want by her step-mother decided to run away and take a job as a servant. Things didn't work out too well for her. That same night she met Luke and, with nowhere to go since she didn't know where her maid Hattie had gone, she ended up going home with Luke, who thought she was a slow servant girl. He began to have his dou

The story is going really well until about 30-40% of the way through. Then, suddenly, it becomes very contrived. It turns very unrealistic, but I continued reading hoping it would get better. It only, in fact, gets worse and I'm struggling to finish even though I'm 80% done. I started out liking the heroine, but now I just need to slap her. I hate her. I hate how she thinks, and I'm pretty sure she's screwed up her life by her drama queen decisions. I really want the hero to say "So, you've made ...more

All I can say about this book is if you have never read a Regency novel, this book would show you what they are all about. Moralizing about the difference between the aristocracy and the poor. Yet, no true exploration of the "plight of the poor" in Regency England. A lady that is "uncommonly educated," but no more informed or intelligent than most modern women. She isn't spouting Socrates or talking about the scholars at the time. Other cliches a rogue with a good heat, a dastardly villian, and ...more

Despite some of the negative reviews, I gave this free e-book a chance and am profoundly grateful that I did. It was a wonderful love story written in the style of Robin Hood. The hero was dashing with a fair portion of scoundrel around the edges. The heroine, while idealistic to a fault, was a strong-willed young woman who knew want she wanted and did everything she could to make her plans come to fruition. Although I had many interruptions and distractions while attempting to read this, all in ...more

A lovable, romantic and funny Regency-historical romance. And definitely not the typical conventional Hero of commoner people, and that of our female protagonist! "Saint of the Seven Dials" rogue will win you heart with his dashing charm, soft-heart and honoring plans for the well being of the poor and less fortunate. The story of Luke and Pearl will make you turn the pages fast and will set your heart beats pump fast as you try to guess what will happen next and what will Luke or Pearl do to ke ...more

This book definitely sported a good many twists and turns, some believable and some not so much so. But it is a work of fiction.

There H/H cloaked their deception and a blatant breaking of societal rules. However, together they discover a kindred spirit in helping others. The characters were strong, intelligent, and shared a cohesive chemistry.

There were slight descriptions during sensuous scenes, but not obnoxiously so.

Was very pleased with the interaction, characterization, and just plain fun of this novel. It is a long one, but it's a good one.

And I have read it before, which I think is funny, because it wasn't previously logged into my Goodreads account. I wonder when I read it last.

Anywho--it's a fabulous one!

My lazy gene must have kicked in right back then because holy cow how can I have left this lovely book sitting in my Kindle for soooooo long???

The blurb was very appealing, so as I’m in a regency romance period, this one was perfect.
I loved both characters until their stubbornness and lack of communication gave me the need to slap their head.
I know it is more a world of appears than being but how many hurts and tourments they would have avoided with less pride and more words.
Whatever, in all, it is a good book with a plot driven by many twists and turns.

A thrilling adventure as well as mystery that has not palled in the re~read. Because of my memory lapses where i recall the first chapters but not the middle and the last ones, it felt like I was reading it the first time. With the proliferation of mangled Regencies and Historicals which has something to do with Time Warps and confusing Timelines and the total disregard for the given categories that give insult to both reader and genre, Ms. Hiatt's Regencies are a welcome addition to a discernin ...more

After trying to read another book, won here and discarded now, I turned to Ms. Hiatt for some decent reading.
She didn't disappoint me. Thanks Ms. Hiatt for gifting me the Rogue's Honor.
This is a book that entertains as it addresses social issues that were prevalent in the 1800s and are still around today.
