It was only a matter of time. As soon as Ethan Damont showed his finesse and bravery by rescuing Collis Tremayne and his “uncle” from that dungeon, he proved his value to the Crown. Their clandestine activities could benefit from a man like Damont, and the decision has been made to offer him membership in The Liars Club.


Ethan Damont has no allegiance, except to his wallet. He knew that the patriotic group was not finished with him, but he cannot decide if he should join them. After all, a rather uncommon gambler doesn’t breathe the rarified air of this aristocratic crowd. He is impressed, though, with the other Liars, even if their altruistic purpose doesn’t interest him.


Lady Jane Pennington can’t wait for the Season to end. When she escapes the crowded ballroom, she sees a light in her uncle’s study. The only way to see what is going on is to climb the nearby tree. Jane is a curious person, and this time, her nosy nature gets her into trouble. When the weakened limb snaps, she is toppled into the arms of a surprised Ethan.


This is the first of many encounters for Ethan and Jane. Circumstances will force them to trust one another. What if Jane is part of the plot to overthrow the monarchy? Ethan may have to choose sides, and neither of them look too appealing right now.


Author Celeste Bradley has really hit her stride with The Liar’s Club and companion series, The Royal Four. These ambitious books are filled with action and romance. The heroes and heroines are brave and strong, but human. This sixth installment, The Rogue is no different. Readers will find themselves swept up in the thrill of the chase, and the breathless anticipation of love amidst the pages.
