Review: Sometimes a Rogue by Mary Jo Putney

Title: Sometimes a Rogue (Lost Lords, #5)
Author: Mary Jo Putney
Source: Netgalley
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: Novel (430pgs)
Reviewer: CaroleDee


Even the most proper young lady yearns for adventure. But when the very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister discover they’ve abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay with her life…

A Rogue...

Rob Carmichael survived his disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a talent for rescuing damsels in distress. But Sarah is one damsel who is equal to whatever comes. Whether racing across Ireland with her roguish rescuer or throwing herself into his arms, she challenges Rob at every turn.

Hmm... After reading the first four books in the Lost Lords series and liking them a lot (solid 4 star books!) I was expecting more from Sometimes a Rogue.

Rob's character in previous books seemed very mysterious and alluring. I was looking forward to unraveling the enigma of a Lord turned dangerous Bow Street runner. While I got was I was looking for in Rob, the ridiculous coincidences and Sarah's numerous TSTL moments overshadowed what should have been a great love story.

I'm planning to stick with the Lost Lord's series, but I don't plan on reading this one again.  :/
