Leander, Earl of Charrington, has huge problems. Every woman he meets is madly in love with him.

Thing is, he's bummed about it since what wants is a loveless marriage.

Judith Rossiter is the widow of a popular poet, who slept in curlers (yes he did)

…and wrote all his odes to her, including the perennial favorite, Angel Bride. She scrapes by with her young son and daughter, as her husband’s annuity ended with his death. It’s only the small charity sent by her brother-in-law that keeps the wolves

Leander, the Earl of Charrington want to marry quickly and start a family but he wants a wife who will not fall in love with him as all the young debutante's do. He chooses Judith Rossiter, the Weeping Widow who is said to deeply mourn her poet husband and is unlikely to therefore fall in love with him. What he doesn't know is she hasn't loved her husband since they were first married and she is in a bad way monetarily and has no choice but to marry him for his money and the opportunities it wil ...more

I was resigned to this series taking its time to get any good. So I was pleasantly surprised when this one broke the mediocre trend. Unfortunately, you'll still want the background from the first two stories. That or simply put up with the dissatisfaction of not having the background for key characters.

Anyway, Leander and Judith are finally protagonists I could engage with wholly. They're caring and intriguing and have strengths that shore one another up and support a relationship I was interest
This is an atypical Regency romance for Beverley or so I've read. I was really happy to find that the whole woman as possession was tone down to a whisper in this book. Both Leander and Judith are longing for a marriage based on honesty, friendship and the desire to make a home. Judith has been nicknamed the Weeping Widow by the villagers, Leander is looking to marry without the foolish emotion of love and wants friendship and a solid honest relationship instead. He finds a ready made family wit ...more

I seem to be averaging two romances a month. My mom would be horrified. She does not read for escape, she reads for learning, for improving her mind. Mostly, I am over her condemnation of my reading habits, because I know that there is only so much reading time left. I have decided life is too short to read only for improving my mind. I want to enjoy what I am reading and there are fewer calories in romance books than in a box of chocolates.

Great Love story about avoiding love for something more practical. I enjoyed the characters-each unique and well-written. Great children characters. They weren't perfect, but typical and so likable. A very interesting Christmas story.
Leander is the son of a diplomat who's spent most of his life traveling around the capitals of Europe romancing princesses. Judith is a sensible widow with two children who's never traveled more than a few miles from her small town. Leander wants to stop traveling and make a real home, and decides that he needs a very English woman to help him do that. However, he wants someone who won't fall desperately in love with him, since his parents had an unbalanced marriage. He figures Judith, who every ...more
This book was very well written and enjoyable. The romance that builds between Leander and Judith was pretty realistic as it moved from one of an arranged marriage to a marriage that contained love and respect for each other. I liked the kids as well as the other minor characters.

My only concern was that the ending seemed rushed with the sudden resolution of problems in Leander's estate and then the identification of the character who was causing problems and then overcoming and stopping his abu

It’s the 19th Century

Usually, I like Jo Beverly's book. This book treats the children as if they lived in this Century. Children were not taken to the theater at nite. It simply wasn’t done. They were seen and not heard. I do not like when a Regency romance writer tells a story with details that represent 21st Century thinking.

hesitating between three and four. the hero feels static all the way through while the heroine grows to trust him. the conflict with the hero's family is too easily resolved. overall it kept me reading, but not fabulous.

So I haven't read many regency romances in my time. In fact, I think the only one I'd read before was a Harlequin, and that was for a library school class. So I wasn't really expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. But surprisingly, I think it was the best so far of my Christmas reads, although all things considered, it really didn't have a ton to do with Christmas. The title "Christmas Angel" both oversells the amount of Christmas in it and the amount of sentimentality. But despite that, it rea ...more

4.5 stars

This book is part of a series about a group of men who were bullied as school boys and then banded together as The Company of Rogues to protect themselves. The stories can be read separately, and I think I read one or more several years ago.

This romance story has a fresh approach to the usual tropes found in this genre. The female and male protagonists are likeable and kind. They experience the usual misunderstandings that derail the romance, but these are not drawn out or overdone. Th
This was my first Jo Beverley book and I found it perfectly enjoyable.

I won't likely re-read it, so couldn't give it "all the stars" but, as someone who finds it difficult to get pulled into any book lately, I must give it its due propers for holding my interest from opening paragraph to last. I was sad to see it end and I'm not sure if that was due to my love of the book or if I've just grown accustomed to the trend of authors writing generous denouements or epilogues and often setting up the
I actually liked this book I had not read any of the other books before in the series, but it is easy to understand, and catch up. Leander, is an Earl that does not want to marry for love, so he chooses a widow who is a lady with two children. Judith has fallen on hard times since her husband, a self acclaimed poet of only one book passed away. When she meets Leander she cannot be sure he is not playing a prank. Leander likes the idea of having children brought to the marriage, since his home is ...more

This is Leander Knollis, Earl of Charrington and Judith Rossiter's story.
All the ladies in London were falling in love with Leander (Lee to his friends), so he escaped to Hartwell, Lucien, the Marquess of Arden's cottage in Surrey. He wanted to get married but didn't want the lady to fall in love with him. So Lucien's wife Beth decided to play matchmaker and tell him about the Weeping Widow. She was a lady who was still so much in love with her husband that she was still wearing black after two

Think my favorite Rogues. I've read over and over since 2013. Something about a totally secure male who is sure he knows all about love and relationships. Leander is so securely insecure he's a perfect male for this era. Independent thinker , in charge of his life. Can even feel bad if young women faints at his feet. Yea, right😳. It's fun to watch his downfall to a sensible woman who has a secret she can't share or loose a chance at a future for her children. And the children are a great part of ...more
This book is probably one of the funniest in the series. I loved the family antics portrayed in this book. I rarely read romance novels with young children in them; if there are, they are usually used to force the couple to be together or generally found in the background (mentioned once or twice) with little exposure. In this book, the children seamlessly enters the story and made the experience really enjoyable. The children are actually integral for the development of the characters, both int ...more

I enjoyed this storyline and the struggle each to be honest with the other and themselves.
Moved at a great pace, characters are well developed and for the most part likable.
I did think Judith flew off the handle rather quickly and that part drove me nuts. Seriously would you rather live dirt poor or as a Countess?
Leander was a bit unreal in the fact that he wanted to be married so badly that he practically gave her everything that wasn't entailed and free rein to live separate.

Lots of little

Great Read - Loved it!!!

I really enjoyed this story. It's called the Christmas Angel and most of the action happens during the Christmas season. I loved the main couple Leander and Judith. These two are my favorite couple so far. I've already read the first two books in the series and will continue reading the rest of them.

Christmas Angel (The Company of Rogues Series, Book 3)

Excellent book

I enjoyed this book so much. The couple was one of the marriage of convenience novels that I enjoy so much. Leander and Judith were great together and began falling in love almost from the beginning but didn't acknowledge it until near the end of the book. We also caught up with the couples from the first two books in this series.

Marriage of convenience

Another Rogue, this one actually seeking a wife, and when his friends wife casually mentions the Weeping Widow he thinks he has found the perfect arrangement. One without emotional involvement. Delightful.

Wonderful Read!!

I loved the whole book and disliked none of it!! It was ALL wonderful!! The main characters are really delightful getting to know!! Jo Beverly writes wonderful stories that delight, charm and intrigue! Don’t miss a “The Company of Rogues” book! Blessings!

The Company of Rogues = romance gold

Everything Jo Beverly writes is gold. Story after story includes well crafted plots, characters we love to love and because they are part of a series, we encounter old friends.

A true happily ever after story.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Any sexual content was tastefully written and focused more on the relationship than than actual act itself. I will be working on getting the rest of these books to continue the ongoing stories.

Not as good as the last one but still a nice yarn.
