Once upon a time in Mayfair a group of wallflowers formed a secret society with goals that had absolutely nothing to do with matrimony. Their most troublesome obstacle? Rogues!    They call her Beastly Beatrice.  Wallflower Lady Beatrice Bentley longs to remain in the wilds of Cornwall to complete her etymological dictionary. Too bad her brother's Gothic mansion is under renovation. How can she work with an annoyingly arrogant and too-handsome rogue swinging a hammer nearby? Rogue. Scoundrel. Call him anything you like as long as you pay him.  Navy man Stamford Wright is leaving England soon and renovating Thornhill House is just a job. It's not about the duke's bookish sister or her fiery copper hair. Or the etymology lessons the prim-yet-alluring lady insists on giving him. Or the forbidden things he'd love to teach her. They say never mix business with pleasure. But when Beatrice and Ford aren't arguing, they're kissing.  Sometimes temptation proves too strong to resist...even if the cost is a heart.… (mais)

While I was hoping for a bit of angst, but Beatrice was confident and lovely regardless of her palsy, which is great, it’s just that I prefer to see heroes help heroines heal from insecurity and come out of their shells. There was a bit of that here, but it was mostly that Beatrice is bookish and solely focused on her dictionary, and Ford was provoking and challenging and made her engage with life outside a library. This was very sweet and romantic and I liked it, despite the negligible amount of attention it gave to my favored tropes. I am looking forward to this series though! I wonder who is next? (3.5 stars) ( )

The fact that the protagonist was a book loving early feminist with a bookshop made sure that this would be a five star read for me! First book by Lenora Bell that I have read but will definitely check out more. ( )

No! No. No!

I couldn't find the strength to finish this because of the MCs. This couple, Lady Beatrice Bentley and Stamford Wright, would have never worked out and as the story progressed, it was difficult to envision a relationship between them.

A bibliophile and a scoundrel? Nope. I love the opposites attract trope as much as the next reader but our heroine was in another stratosphere. Incompatible is putting it lightly and the main characters differences negatively impacted my thoughts about them and this book itself.

To add on, this novel was not engaging. I was bored and disinterested and left scratching my head on the 'romance' segment of this read. It didn't do it for me for obvious reasons and I can only hope with the next installment, I can find a deeper connection or attachment with the characters, plot and storyline.

Lenora Bell always delivers and this one is a true delight. This is book 1 in her newest series Wallflowers vs Rogues.
"Wallflower Lady Beatrice Bentley longs to remain in the wilds of Cornwall to complete her etymological dictionary. Too bad her brother’s Gothic mansion is under renovation. How can she work with an annoyingly arrogant and too-handsome rogue swinging a hammer nearby?"
Funny, engaging and delightful. Highly recommend this book to all that love an engaging historical romance. ( )

I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an advance reader copy of this story.

Love Is A Rogue, by Lenora Bell, is available at booksellers 10-27-2020. Rogue is book 1 in Ms Bell's new series Wallflowers vs. Rogues. We're off to a good start. Our smart, independent as possible leading lady is likeable to a certain extent. She spends a lot of time doing he loves me he loves me not. A twist on the usual trope is our gal is the daughter of a duke and her man is a builder. No title at all & his father works for the duke. There are all kinds of obstacles in their way but none bigger than themselves. Can't wait to see what's in store for her wallflower friends. Hope they get men as nice as Ford.
