The Ruin of a Rogue starters a little slow but picked up momentum the further into the book I read. It's an historical romance about a man who has made his living as a card shark. He has done things he's not proud of but this is further explained as the story goes on. He sets out to marry or at least compromise (& hopefully get paid off) an heiress. Anne is the richest young woman around, maybe ever. So wealthy that her potential groom's mother (aunt?) tells her it doesn't matter if she is ruined, some man will still be willing to marry her. Her potential suitor is pretty stiff necked so she thinks if she just ruins herself a little bit he will not want her. Then she meets Marcus who has recently inherited a viscountcy. He of course, is the rogue mentioned in the title. She starts to like him but overhears him telling his friend that she is ripe for the plucking and will soon fall into his arms. She is outraged and decides to teach him a lesson. She drags him all over London to places he has to pay entrance fees to and demands that he pay for her maid as well. She also acts like a spoiled heiress (heartless and unfeeling). He has about had all he can stand, not to mention afford, when he finds out he's inherited a manor house and lands from his uncle. He's ecstatic that he can tell her to go to blazes and leaves London after telling her of his inheritance. She is interested in archeology and knows the lands he inherited have a well known Roman site that hasn't been fully excavated and she wants to go dig it up.
She turns up on his doorstep expecting him to welcome her with open arms. Which he doesn't. It's her time to learn a lesson and he's determined to do it. He has found the house and tenants on the lands in neglected and deplorable condition, so he tells her she can spend 2 hrs a day cleaning the house to pay for the privilege of digging. Believe it or not she finally agrees. The story builds from there and we learn some unexpected things, he learns a lot about himself and she falls in love. It's a very good story with unexpected twists. Very enjoyable, with a surprise ending!

A good romp, with a twist, lol. If you like Miranda Neville you will like this one. Have already passed it on.
