    4.25 5 You ve ruined me I don t know if I can breathe without you I don t know how I can ever live without you James TrevillionMuch better than my expectations Thoroughly beautiful I postponed reading this book for so long, considering I wasn t impressed with Phoebe s character in the previous book I found her quite stubborn, so I was afraid she would get on my nerves in this installment But oh, how wrong I was to think of her that way She was nothing like I thought she would be Honestly, her courage and her strength utterly surprised me I can tell she s pretty much my kind of heroine Dearest Rogue captured me from the first page and I found myself unable to put it down till the end The story was very well written, full of passionate romance, exciting action, and engaging suspense.In this book, we meet Captain James Trevillion and Lady Phoebe Batten.During Captain James Trevillion s patrol shift in St Giles, his horse was shot and she fell atop him He suffered a horrifying broken leg and it immediately ended his army career ...

    I m going to tell you that I might be a smidge biased about this book as this is really one of my favorite tropes and I m a sucker for a Captain, any kind of captain in fact from Captain Jack Sparrow, to James Tiberius Kirk, to Captain Malcolm Reynolds and let us not forget Captain Thorn the Lunar Chronicles , Both Captains of the Queensgaurd, Hector Girl of Fire and Thorns and Amon Byrne Seven Realms and last but not least Captain America But this has the added bodyguard who falls in love with his body to guard.I have been waiting for Trevillions book for a while especially when I learned that Phoebe was the love interest I have liked her small parts in all of the other books and I ve also felt so bad for her that because she has been going blind she is cut off from most of society and while her family loves her they are maybe doing a bit too much to make sure she is safe that it is no wonder she almost feels a prisoner in her own home She stood, a little unsteadily, true, but on her own two feet It s not my blindness that cripples me, it s everyone else deciding I can t live because of my blindness If I stumble, if I run into things and fall and hurt myself it s because I...

    7 May 2015 My thoughts upon finishing Dearest RogueWarning Do not begin this book unless you are prepared to stay up all night finishing it Dearest Rogue may be my favorite Maiden Lane book yet The romance between Phoebe and Trevillion will sweep you up, and besides that there is adventure, mystery, and an adorable child 29 May 2015Elizabeth Hoyt s books just keeps getting better As I noted in my five star review of her last book, Darling Beast, she has taken the Maiden Lane series in a new direction, adding characters while keeping the ones we ve met before Captain James Trevillion first appeared in Scandalous Desires Maiden Lane, 3 , leading a troop of mounted soldiers hunting for an accused murderer known as the Ghost of St Giles He wasn t a villain exactly, but his strict devotion to duty put him in conflict with the heroes of the earlier books Trevillion was invalided out of the army when his leg was badly broken after his horse was shot and fell on him Now, walking with a cane but still able to ride like the devil, he has taken a job guarding Phoebe Batten, the young sister of a former adversary, Maximus Batten, Duke of Wakefield.Maximus has decreed that Phoebe must have a guard because she is almost completely blind Phoebe was not born blind her sight began deteriorating when she was twelve, and now at age 21, she can detect light but nothing The duke is not cruel or ashamed of her he just wants to protect her f...

    Better than the last one High praise, indeed And, sure this couple was also boring, but the story was sweet and actually a little bit believable There was actual chemistry.So, we have Phoebe, a blind girl who gets all annoyed when people want to help her walk without falling into a hole And, James, her bodyguard who is a bit crippled from injuries to one of his legs who gets annoyed if anyone wants to help him in any way Perfect match They fight, she resents him, he secretly loves her, he leaves her, she misses him, he kidnaps her for her safety , and thenThe only thing that annoyed me about this book, other than the idiotic scene where she convinces him to let her walk unassisted along a hole ridden, uneven road and she falls over and over again, but hey, independence , was how utterly stupid James has...

    3.5 Stars It s no surprise that this is my favorite historical series Only a few authors are on my auto buy list and Elizabeth Hoyt is one of them This story was sweetwhich is not bad but I m so used to the action, suspense and intrigue from the other books that I kind of missed it it in this oneand I m especially missing the Ghost of St Giles I really wish there could be a fourth one This was a sweet read, and my first book where the heroine is blind EH is such an amazing author that she somehow made it work, but I just wanted I also didn t like all of the kidnappings and the Duke of Montgomery was starting to annoy me, but overall, if you re ...

    I ve given this an A at AAR, so that s 4.5 stars rounded up.While I ve enjoyed all the books in Elizabeth Hoyt s Maiden Lane series, Dearest Rogue has been the one I ve most eagerly anticipated In fact, it s one of my most highly anticipated books of 2015 Perhaps that s a little unusual, considering this is the eighth book in a long running series, but something about the pairing of the older, world weary, dour ex officer with the young, vital but blind sister of a duke is intriguing and completely irresistible Perhaps it s that whole bodyguard falls for his charge thing although that s not a plotline I m fussed about either way or what s likely is that the glimpses we ve been given of Phoebe Batten and Captain Trevillion in the earlier books, both separately and together, plus their appearance in the short Christmas story that appeared on the author s website a couple of years back showed an already amazing chemistry that I was keen to revisit and experience in a whole novel.Readers familiar with the earlier books will know that James Trevillion, Captain in the King s 4th Dragoons was injured in the line of duty, his right leg severely damaged when he was crushed beneath his horse No longer able to perform his military role, he resigned his commission and was then offered a job by Maximus Batten, the powerful Duke of Wakefield, as bodyguard to his youngest sister, Phoebe Phoebe s eyesight has been gradually worsening since t...

    4 A buddy read with the Romantics at the MacHalo Freaks Because we love love Yes, we are back in 18th century England, Maiden Lane, ravaged by Gin and poverty, crime and filth Well, that is on Maiden Lane In the houses of the Ton, life seems much easier and gentile It does not matter where or when you are, money and privilege are always a plus I don t want you hurt, he said gruffly I know Her smile was winsome But falling isn t the end of the world I may fall, it s true in fact, I probably will fall but really, one can t live without falling now and again Lady Phoebe Batten is the sister of a Duke, comfort, luxury and privilege are a given for her station For this beautiful and full of life young woman the skies should be the only limit However, even the greatest families can not always get away from faith and in Phoebe s case, a disease of the eyes at an early age has her vision degenerating with an alarming speed Her advancing blindness is the reason her Duke brother enlists the recently injured Captain James Trevillion, who finds himself unable to continue with his military duties since his leg...

    So sweet Wasn t sure how I would like this one Trevillion is a bit of a moody character in the previous books but he ended up being a real sweetheart TREVILLION woke the next morning as he often did all at once, at exactly six of the clock , and with a stiff cock Of course Trevillion was not of her station so did not feel worthy of her...

    5 STARS Was she to him now than simply a duty Big smiles, you guys Big, BIG smiles Such a solid read I loved it Phoebe was a fabulous heroine I adored her She was strong, kind, and optimistic in a way that didn t grate on my nerves I applaud Hoyt for not allowing her blind heroine to flounder around in the deep end of the schmaltzy cheese pool I just want to live Trevillion was just as wonderful strong, noble, and severe in an edgy way that didn t grate on my nerves She was twelve years younger than he and a hundred years innocent, and the daughter and sister of a duke, fresh, gay, beautiful He had two loaded pistols, a lame leg, and a hard cock to his name And together, they served up everything that makes historical romance great I devoured every last word.Plus the set up for future installments didn t feel intrusive, like it was taking page time away ...

    I upgraded the rating from 4 the first time around to 4.5 rounded to 5 this time Maybe I m just in a generous mood.What I liked about it The wounded Hero, gruff, serious, truly a hero and leader of men He s always been such a stick in the mud from previous books and you know he s one of the good guys but you can t help but think someone needs to pull that pole out of your ass So I was curious how EH would treat him in this book, how she d open him up and get us to fall in love.She did great The easiest part of it was just showing us his POV now that he s the main character And when you know what he s thinking, how he looks at his duty and his charge, you can t help but to like him.Plus, it doesn t hurt to be handsome dark hair, blue eyes, tall and broad, soft lips What s not to like And I do love the name James For some reason, it makes him elegant, refined, sensitive in a way I like that h loves calling him that and how it makes him feel to hear her call him that EH s fascination with chest hair disturbs ...
