Review: Gone with the Rogue by Amelia Gray


A powerful handsome rogue finally meets his match in Gone With the Rogue, the second book in the First Comes Love series from bestseller Amelia Grey.

She had an acceptable marriage of convenience. Now widowed, can this determined and beautiful mother find true and forever love?

The sinking of the Salty Dove took her husband’s life—but it didn’t drown Julia Fairbright’s courage to endure. She creates a proper life for herself and her young son. But now, the ton’s most notorious rogue is back, and how he makes Julia feel is anything but proper. She can’t deny the desires he awakens in her, even though she knows that the handsome devil will surely break her heart.

Garrett Stockton owns a successful shipping company and is rumored to have a woman on every continent and half-a-dozen in England. The truth, however, is that Garrett has but one mistress: the wide open sea. That is, until he meets Julia, whose spirit of independence matches his own. What begins as a flirtatious battle of wits turns far more passionate than either of them could have imagined. Suddenly, Garrett’s only desire is to sail into the sunset with Julia as his wife and young Chatwyn his son. But she won’t take his hand—how can he convince her that his love is real and his heart is hers?

“A master storyteller.”—Affaire de Coeur

Thank you NetGalley and St. Martins Press for priding us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

I know this will be an odd place to start this review, but here it goes… I HATE the Duke. I hate the fact that he is so close minded and ugly in the way that he treats his daughter in law. It was not her fault that her son died in the sinking of a ship. Its not her fault that the Duke was trying to force his son into a marriage that he didn’t want so he went off and married another, but he treats her like it is. This makes me love and appreciate the fact that Julia is doing anything and everything to get out from under his clutches. The way that Julia accepts Garretts help is so cute, she gets herself in so may pickles it made me giggle, but behind it all is Julia’s amazing heart. Her desire to help not just herself but so many. It takes Garrett some time to be able to show her that he is genuine in his feelings for her and what he wants for them in the future, but the best thing was watching him help her take her freedom back. There are secondary characters that I want to know what happens with them, and how their future forms. I can’t wait for the next book.

I give this book 5 kisses…

Happy reading.. Adri
