The revision

Never rescue a rogue It is the second book of the merriwell sisters series of virginia heather. It’s a smart and charming Regency rom-com with huge appeal.

Diana Merriwell and Giles Sinclair get together, with apparent reluctance, since their sister is married to his best friend (never fall in love with your fiancee). Diana is a not-so-secret journalist who writes a gossip column for a London newspaper. She is also a secret investigative reporter.

Giles is the heir apparent to the Duke of Harpenden, but he’s hiding an embarrassing “dirty secret.” When his father suddenly dies, Giles lives in fear that his downfall is just around the corner.

The story may seem like an enemies versus lovers situation, but it really isn’t. Diana and Giles don’t really hate each other, they just enjoy shoving and barbing. The rest of the family is convinced there is an underlying attraction, but Diana and Giles deny and deny (too much?).

Three elements are common to a good romantic comedy: clever verbal confrontation, unique supporting characters, and convoluted situations. All three elements lead to a fast-paced story with plenty of hilarity.

In Diana we have the independent woman who doesn’t need a man but discovers she wants one. In Giles, we’ve got a very decent guy stuck in a bad situation. It doesn’t take long before he realizes that she may be the right person to solve her problems, in more ways than one!

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but I think this one is even better. There’s a bit of a slow start as we learn about Diana and Giles’ personal issues, but the story picks up quickly and builds to a fun ending.

Never rescue a rogue it’s full of quote-worthy lines and charming twists and turns. It’s a prime example of a historical romantic comedy that will tickle the funny bone and tug at the heartstrings.buy links
