That Despicable Rogue

A lady's mission of revengeLady Hannah Steers has three reasons to loathe and despise Ross Jameson He's a scandalous libertine he stole her home and he was responsible for the. After reading Virginia Heath s A Discerning Gentleman s Guide and absolutely loving it I added everything from Heath s short backlist to my pile she is a relatively new author which is impressive because her ability to create layered characters is superbThat Despicable Rogue is Heath s debut novel and one I greatly enjoyed though not as much as A Discerning Gentleman s Guide In this novel the heroine Hannah pretends to be a housekeeper for the hero Ross so she can gather dirt on him in order to avenge her brother s death Things are dark and messy at the beginning of the book where Ross ends up winning the deed to a house in a card game and the losing man commits suicide at the club The book then picks up almost a year later when Hannah forges some references and leans on her old friend to get her hired as a housekeeper for her ancestral home the same home that she believe Ross stole from her brother and caused him to kill himselfAs a reader we know some truths but for the most part things are revealed to us in layers much as Ross and Hannah learn about each other This complex layering of the characters was also present in Heath s other book and if this ability to create fully fleshed flawed characters is a trademark of hers then consider me an auto buy fan of hers foreverThis story mostly takes place in the ancestral home as Hannah helps Ross restore the place while still conducting her furtive search for his dark secrets As her uest for dirt continues to fail and she only sees Ross kindness fairness and humor she begins to doubt her preconceived notions and slowly opens up to him I loved Ross from the get go but Hannah was harder to like She clung to her assumptions to the bitter end and even slept with Ross without telling him the truth Her persistent lying is what kept this book from being a full 5 stars Additionally the ending is really dramatic and over the top which jarred with the slower pace of the rest of the book Despite these uibbles this is still an excellent read Heath does a great job building a character driven story and I appreciate how well she has her characters explain themselves Even when they do stupid things I still understand why and that is awesomeI look forward to my next book by Heath I am so pumped she has several releases slotted for 2017

Virginia Heath Ì 9 Summary

Death of her brother Determined to expose Ross for the rogue he is Hannah dons a disguise and infiltrates his home as his new housekeeper Unfortunately this scoundrel proves. Maybe I have become pickier lately but the moment the hero kissed our heroine while still thinking she was his housekeeper I said NOPE Especially since she clearly said NO I don t care how charming he is and that she enjoyed it in the end It feels wrong even if it was normal in that time
