Summary

Bow Street's best investigator, Sir Brook Derring, is hailed as a hero by the ton, but he cares little for the praise or the women. He fell in love once, with Lady Lillian-Anne Lennox, and shortly thereafter lost all romantic notions.

As the eldest daughter of the duke of Lennox, Lila has everything but the freedom to follow her heart. All that is taken away when she's kidnapped by a London crime lord, but she knows that someone must be looking for her. She hopes that it will be Brook, the only man she's ever truly cared for and has never been able to tell.

Contains mature themes.

Not as good as the previous

I love this series. Here we get Brook's story and, although not as fabulous as the previous books, it's a pretty good one.

I missed the humorous dialogue of the first two books. The story was good but most of it took place outside of London and the Cubs were pretty much not a part of the plot - other than a few characters popping up. I am glad the narrator changed Brook's "voice" for this book. In the previous books he came across with a wimpy voice. I knew this was his book so I was worried that he would be dull to listen to. He was fine.

I liked this book but I can't point to anything that was really outstanding. I enjoyed it but I was expecting more.

Really good

I enjoyed this book. Sure he’s not a powerful duke but he was great and I loved that she wasn’t the typical character in every book (spinster or overly stubborn or refuses to fall in love, etc.). There could have been a little bit more dialogue between them to show the love growing. The love scenes were excellent and so very steamy!!! I’ll be looking for more books by this author.

loved it!

loved this book, as always, the two people in it end up together, after they realize they really do love one another. but was a great story. the Earl in it because he was not the oldest, could be whatever he wanted to be and he chose to be a police officer. it was amazing. knowing the duke's daughter was way above his station but still love does conquer all. all in all the story was great and the narrator did a great job also. and even though this was a romance novel. the twists and turns and the plot of the story keeps you guessing until the very end. so very much worth the time and effort or money you put into it. I would definitely read anyting by this author if all of her books are like this. definitely take the time to check out her books I know I will.

evil heroine

She wants to be feared by other debutante...Sir Brooks deserves a better woman. I like the re-appearance of "Dudley".

Hero needed chip knocked off his shoulder

Lila was an immature mean girl 7 years previously when Brook impulsively proposed marriage and she crushed his heart. When he later saved her from kidnappers they were married against both their wills while going into hiding until the mystery was solved. I felt sympathy for Lila as she struggled to mature and become more caring. Brook on the other hand was hateful and unforgiving despite Lilas many sincere apologies. I didn’t like the way he introduced her to marital intimacies even though he was vocal about annulling the marriage and abandoning her after mystery was solved. I wanted Lila to knock Brook on his a** and have some self respect. Great narrator and I love this author. The hero not so much.

I Kissed a Rogue

Love Brook and Lila's story. Shana Galen has never disappointed me yet. She is a very gifted writer and Beverley Crick has become a new favorite and joined my list of gifted narrators.💗

Most irritating heroine

I really don’t want to write a negative review but I really can’t stand it no more. I tried to give patience but it’s difficult. 8chapters in is all I can take. The heroine is spoiled, irritated, irresponsible, childish, rude, girl.
The narrator voice for the heroine isn’t making her more appealing.

That’s the last straw! I have to end this before I smack myself for being stupid enough to torture myself any longer.

Satisfying

A nice, enjoyable romance marred just a bit by a few too many preposterous elements. (One minute she can't do anything because of the swelling in her wrist, the next moment she's engaging in a brawl with her feminine attacker with no problems, etc), but overall a quick, satisfying second-chance romance.

Just okay, not nearly as good as the first book.

This was an okay story. Especially compared to the first book in the series which was fantastic. The second book was good, this one just okay. It just seemed like a lot of elements were missing in the story line and there was so much emphasis on the sex and the sex scenes. Which I like sex in my stories don't get me wrong but at one point you were literally listening for an entire hour of sex, and that was just one of them because there were a few. Which leaves less room for the story or any sort of plot.

There is a lot of dialogue throughout the book which is good. The chemistry was okay, not the best between a hero and heroine I have read.

As for the narration, I think she did a great job. Beverly Crick seems to be getting better for sure. I am glad she changed Brook's voice, if she hadn't I wouldn't have been able to listen to it. I will say that she does a fantastic cockney accent!. She does read with emotion and her reading voice is nice too. So glad she is getting better, she was not a favorite narrator of mine before this series.
