Book Description

"Putney's reputation as one of the finest writers of Regency romance is well deserved. She never shies away from different plots or atypical characters and writes wildly exciting adventure romances. She's done it all again in the marvelous, emotional and thrilling fifth book in the Lost Lords series." --RT Book Reviews on Sometimes a Rogue Top Pick

"Composed of equal measures of dangerous intrigue and potent passion, Putney's fifth elegantly written installment in her Lost Lords series delivers captivating characters, an impeccably realized Regency setting, and a thrilling plot rich in action and adventure." – Booklist, STARRED review for Sometimes a Rogue

Sometimes. . .

Even the most proper young lady yearns for adventure. But when the very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister discover they've abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay with her life. . .

A Rogue. . .

Rob Carmichael survived his disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a talent for rescuing damsels in distress. But Sarah is one damsel who is equal to whatever comes. Whether racing across Ireland with her roguish rescuer or throwing herself into his arms, she challenges Rob at every turn.

"You can't go wrong with a Putney romance!" –Sabrina Jeffries

    More About the Author

    A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

    Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has five times had books listed among the Library Journal's top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

    Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she'll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She's delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

    I have read most of Mary Jo Putney's previous books and thoroughly enjoyed them, so I'm not quite sure what went wrong with Sometimes a Rogue. The most entertaining part of the slow and painful process of trudging through this story was playing "spot the historical romance cliche". If you can think of a hackneyed or overused plot device or characteristic, it's here in this book; the hero is the despised younger son of a wastrel Earl, his older brother hated him and sold him to a press gang, he was in love with a beautiful commoner but his father paid her off, then he became a Bow Street Runner (because what would Bow Street have done without despised sons of wastrel earls in the 19th century?), he has a crotchety old Dowager Countess for a grandmother but she secretly has a heart of gold... I could go on and on and on. Our heroine has an equally complex and implausible family history and all these various story strands are glossed over along with Irish politics, a kidnapping plot, a sudden inheritance and the discovery of a love child. Somewhere in the middle of all of this, I think the heroine and hero eventually fell in love after having existed in a comfortable, passionless friendship for the first 95% of the story. For anyone who has read any of Julia Quinn's superb recent novels, you will know what I mean when I suggest that Sometimes a Rogue is exactly what I imagine Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron to be like. This is not a compliment.

    3.0 out of 5 stars First Half - Superb, Last Half - Not So Much 5 Jan. 2015
    By Judge Tabor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This story started with a bang. Mariah and her twin Sarah are out riding when Mariah goes into labor at exactly the same time some villains are attempting to kidnap her. They hide in a ruin and Sarah basically comes out, pretends to be Mariah and off the kidnappers go with Sarah, on a journey to who knows where.

    Coincidentally, Rob Carmichael, our trusty Bow Street Runner, just happens to be in the area, planning a stopover at Ashton's and Mariah's home. In all the hubbub, he says, "I, Mighty Bow Runner Rob Carmichael, shall go after the lovely Sarah and return her to the safe arms of her family. The rest of you can stay here and help Mariah birth the baby." No, of course he didn't say exactly that, but that's certainly the gist of what happens.

    Now, if you've read other books in this series, of course you've come across Rob Carmichael and I, for one, have wondered on occasion if he would ever have his story and exactly what his background is. In the context of this story, he's a highly capable man who has a reputation for being the individual to hire if you need someone tracked down or a mystery solved. He's also somehow involved with Kirkland in some of his spy efforts. Kirkland's story is featured in Not Quite A Husband and I haven't read it yet. This story doesn't reveal exactly how Rob is involved with Kirkland.

    In this story, obviously Rob eventually catches up with the feisty Sarah who can ride as good as most men and who has always thought herself to be dull in comparison to her twin Mariah. Not so. Sarah can hold her own.
