The hero was the villain in an earlier story The Blacksmith s Wife and he was loathsome Not over the top evil More DudeBro he tries to c mon baby the heroine into bed while casually dismissing her and when she settles into marriage with his half brother he comes slinking back around like the worst sort of alley cat So yeah Roger has a long ways to go in the redemption department.The author manages to pull it off mainly because she doesn t morph him into a choir boy Instead she pairs him with the ideal heroine and through her experiences and through her eyes, Roger realizes what a putz he s been There s external conflict in play, but I was drawn to the internal conflict The heroine who got into trouble and is raising her son alone, while the hero has bedded half the women on the Continent and is celebrated for it The author sets off little truth bombs about the amount of garbage and hypocrisy women have faced since the dawn of time, and still experience today And while I hesitate to mention it it s the sort of thing that readers seem to love to complain about on GR there are no sex scenes in this book Frankly, it didn t need any and would have been jarringly out of place given the internal conflict This couple burning up the sheets together in the context of this story would have been as subtle as a chainsaw Instead there s some lovely tender moments that illustrate the growing trust between the couple which works well. This is the second book that I have read of Elisabeth s, and she promised me that I would like this book than the The Saxon s Outlaw Revenge, for a introduction to Medieval romances it was a bit gory Well not only do I like this book I love it, and can t wait to read.I m not going to do my normal blog on a book, because if I do then they would be a lot off spoilers.The characters are wonderful, Lucy is strong well she has to be being a single mother to a little boy, and Roger who has his own troubles but finds he likes being with Lucy and her son They have their own conflicts with each other, and at the end have there own happy ending.I will give this book 5 5 stars and I can highly recommend this book Also Elisabeth you have given me such joy in reading this book.I was given this ARC by the author for a honest review. I have always been a closet Mills and Boon fan and the historical fiction books are always worth a look especially those of the less well known periods of history for me Elisabeth Hobbes is my favourite author in this genre so I m always delighted when her newest book is launched And this time I had even to rejoice about as this is book two in the Danby brother series and I was curious to find out what had happened to Roger after we left him in The Blacksmith s Wife so it was great to meet him again here Although I did love Rogers character in that book, he was definitely a bit of a bad boy and whilst women fell in love with this charismatic knight he seemed oblivious to their needs thinking only of his own But he is about to meet his match here in single mother Lucy but she has reason than most to give Roger a wide berth This is the second book I have read this week that is set here in my home county of Cheshire and although both were love stories they couldn t have been apart on the romance spectrum so to speak As with most historical romances, it s all in the build up to the big HEA And Redeeming The Rogue Knight is an absolutely sumptuous historical romance that has been meticulously researched and perfectly polished from start to finish Roger is a dark and brooding hero who has been away from home since the family problems he faced previously in The Blacksmiths Wife Now injured, he seeks refuge with Lucy, who s brother has been travelling with him His interactions with Lucy are full of sexual tension and their chemistry is palpable from their very first encounter I couldn t have picked a better heroine for Roger to pursue as she was perfect for him Lucy was feisty and prickly, standing up to her nemisis and determined to do what she had to do to keep food on her table and a roof over her child s head Definitely a strong minded woman ahead of her time I loved every page of this compelling romance and have to admit that it s actually my favourite of her books so far, made unputdownable by her enticing writing style and perfectly crafted historical detailing It also helps that the cover promises a rather delectable Roger inside as well A must read for fans of this genre
