Print Length: 208 pages
Publisher: Seas the Day (February 6, 2018)

From Reissued and edited with new scenes, My Lord Rogue is an introduction to the Nelson's Tea Series!

Espionage, secrecy, and thwarted assassination attempts. The only thing more dangerous is being in love…
Gillian Chauncey, Baroness Chauncey, is a master of disguise, trained by her expatriated husband, a former French royalist, in the arts of espionage. When a dangerous life or death secret lands in her lap, she’s thrust into a perilous world of ticking clocks and desperation, arrowing her directly into the arms of the man who arranged her marriage.
Lord Simon Danbury is no ordinary nobleman. He’s been tasked by Admiral Nelson to organize an elite group of clandestine first sons willing to sacrifice all to protect England’s shores. When an assassination attempt is made on Nelson, Simon isn’t sure what poses more danger, the enemy or the masterfully seductive Gillian.


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Having read all of the other novels in the Nelson's Tea Series, I found it almost unfathomable that I had not read the novella that started it all.

My Lord Rouge perfectly sets the stage for the novels that come later, introducing you to the primary cast of characters, and giving you the background needed in order to understand the threats facing them. If you haven't already started this series, then I would highly recommend that you do so, starting with this novella! Ms. Bone has a gift of being able to draw her readers into the scenes and worlds that she has created, allowing you to visualize these characters, and experience their joys – and their sorrows – alongside of them.

I would highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy well written novels that feature a cast of characters unlike any I've ever encountered before.
