The Love of a Rogue by Christi Caldwell Review

Lady Imogen Moore hasn’t had an easy time of it since she made her Come Out three Seasons ago. With her betrothed, a powerful duke breaking it off to wed her sister, she’s become the tons favorite piece of gossip. Never again wanting to experience the pain of a broken heart, she’s resolved to make a match with a polite, respectable gentleman. The last thing she wants is another reckless rogue.
Lord Alex Edgerton has a problem. Tired of Alex’s carousing, his eldest brother has charged him with chaperoning their remaining, unwed sister about ton events. Shopping? No, thank you. Attending the theatre? He’d rather be at Forbidden Pleasures with a scantily clad beauty upon his lap. The task of chaperone becomes even more of a bother when his sister drags along her friend, Lady Imogen Moore to social functions. The last thing he wants in his life is a young, innocent English miss.

So if you have read my blog or reviews over the past few months you would know I am absolutely IN LOVE with all of the heroes in Christi Caldwell’s books. Well we are going to add another one today called Alex!
Poor Imogen; not only did she commit a gross faux pas at Almack’s, but now she has to live through the embarrassment of her sister marring the man to which she was betrothed. So now she has to suffer through the snide remarks and the gossiping women of the ton and at times, her own mother. She has one refuge, her best friend Chloe Edgerton.
Sir Alex Edgerton (Chloe’s brother) has managed to survive a horrendous childhood and has become a reckless rake to take away his pain and memories. But now his brother Gabriel has cut him off; unless he becomes chaperone to his sister Chloe and by default to Lady Imogen too. It is only then does he see how Imogen suffers at the hands of her peers and her own family and he strives to protect her.
But when it becomes Alex’s protectiveness public knowledge, he is stopped in his tracks by monsters of the past.
So when it comes to the characters, what struck me first is that Imogen and the Edgerton’s back stories are truly stories of survivors and honestly, who couldn’t fall in love with Alex and his need to protect the women in his life. I would love to see both Chloe and Gabriel find their true loves as well.
Once again Christi Caldwell blows me away with her beautifully moving story, which literally moved me to tears. The writing is flawless and smooth story and it lacks for nothing. So with all that being said, I give The Love of a Rogue 10 out of 10.

USA Today Bestselling author, Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught's "Whitney, My Love," for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!

  1. I absolutely love Christi Caldwell's books too. I'm working my way through the Scandalous Seasons series at the moment but I know I have another fabulous series to read afterwards.
