Review: The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman

A princess in disguise is forced to live with a rogue in order to protect her from danger in this fun, sexy regency romance from Kate Bateman.

In The Princess and the Rogue, Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn’t believe in love—until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.

Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain ‘Anna Brown’. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff’s offer of protection—and accommodation—at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya’s true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue?

As always I want to first thank Netgalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

This is the third of the Bow Street Runners series and I feel like they get better and better. What a great way to hide from trouble if not in plain site. Anna is smart and does what she needs to do to stay safe, she comes up with a brilliant plan to make sure that everyone thinks she is just a plain Jane. I also love that she keeps Sebastien on his toes. She doesn’t let him push her around or make her feel less than what she should. I enjoy the dynamic that she has with her ladies maid as well. Its more of a friend ship and a higher with a lower. It made me laugh how Sebastien and Anna first met each other, it was such a series of follies that it almost feels orchestrated. But that it is not is what makes it even more perfect. I like Sebastian as well he was stubborn and stupid at first, but most men are that way so its no surprise it took him a minute to get to the right place. This is definitely one that be added to the list of must reads.

I gave this book 4 regency kiss.

Happy Reading… Adri
