Love Is a Rogue by Lenora Bell

Love Is a Rogue by Lenora Bell

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Genre: Historical Romance

Heat Rating: 🔥🔥

Series: Wallflowers vs Rogues #1

Release Date: October 27, 2020

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.

Lady Beatrice Bentley wants nothing more than to have some peace and quiet while she writes her dictionary. She is an etymologist and has decided to leave London to her country estate – Thornhill House to write her book. While trying to work peacefully, she happens to cross paths with Samford Wright – the carpenter working on Thornhill House. Beatrice can’t stand Samford – he’s too loud, crass and all the lovely ladies at Thornhill House love him. Beatrice soon returns to London, never expecting to run into Wright again.

Beatrice and Samford’s paths cross once again when Beatrice finds that she is the owner of a bookshop her aunt left her and Samford comes on as her carpenter. Can these two keep their relationship strictly professional or will they end up mixing in some pleasure?

Love Is a Rogue had all of the things I am looking for in a romance – enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity and great friendships among the leads. While I truly enjoyed the friendship between Lady Beatrice and her girlfriends and Lady Beatrice’s love of books (hello bookworms everywhere), the chemistry between Beatrice and Samford was lacking for me. I wanted to root for them as a couple, but sadly I didn’t feel the spark between the two.
