Then there was Emily. She’s great. She’s feisty and spirited and refuses to be cowed. All right, so once past the first few moments of the abduction she never really has to fear she’s going to be hurt, but still, five men against one small woman? Those are pretty terrifying odds. Especially when Godric has a habit of slinging her over his shoulder, while the others just ignore what’s going on. But Emily keeps fighting, however she can, and she’s not adverse to lying either. Good for her!
Godric is a duke with a tragic past, he’s all dark and broody and has a terrible reputation, so it’s no surprise Emily – who does have a soft heart under her independent front – falls for him. Not that she wants to, and not that she gives in easily. I’m not entirely sure he ever deserves her, or does anything like enough apologising for the way he disregards her as a person in his original scheme. I probably would have liked him more if he hadn’t humiliated Emily so many times, without even realising that he was doing it.
As for the rest of the Rogues, well, Cedric and Lucien didn’t really do much, while Ash had no right to get offended when he found out Emily had lied about the Greek. Then there was Charles.Read more ›
Lauren Smith in the space of two books has gone from an unknown, to an unforgettable author to me.
"Give me time and you'll never want to leave."
It is hard to fully put into words my reasoning for this, but on occasion a reader will connect with a writer, whether it be due to the subject matter they cover, the style of their writing, the characteristics of the individuals they bring to life, or just their vivid imaginations and the stories that they give you, but it all just clicks into place, and you know that you will forever now be desperately waiting for them to finish writing their next book so that you can eagerly devour it.
"Care for a noonday tumble?"
If there was ever a genre of romantic writing that I would laugh at you and say 'not likely' too, it would be Historical. I as I am sure a lot of my fellow readers read a fair few under the covers with a torch in my teens, and believe me the Mills & Boon/Harlequin type fiction I read in those times, formed the base of my voracious appetite for books now. But its notsomuch a genre I would want to willingly go back to now.
That is until I started the first book in Lauren's League of Rogues series, Wicked Designs is quite simply an absolute masterpiece of storytelling. I got lost in this book, I didn't care that I had been transported back to the Summer of 1820. All I cared about was the Characters (of which there are many and they are varied), the thrilling and fully engrossing story line, and the fact that I had been proved totally and utterly wrong with my assumptions.

The League of Rogues has captured my interest! I loved the vibrancy of the cover and how it captures "the rogue" as we expect it. I definitely enjoyed reading this historical romance by Lauren Smith. Her writing voice is up to my my standards of quality writing. I think she has a great way with creating chemistry between characters and bringing out true emotions that the reader can easily relate to. The camaraderie between the men in the League of Rogues was my favorite part of this story. I love how their true colors shine past their reputations as rogues while they help miss Emily and Godric in their rocky romance. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of historical romance. I can't wait for the next installment. I just can't get enough of these rogues.

I loved the caring shown by the men but the rest of the book was basically the same day repeated with slightly different details over and over again.Published on 16 May 2014 by Nic
Quite a good afternoon read. Loved the comradery among the five rouges. A sweet romance, simple plot with a few laughs thrown in. I will look out for other books by this author.Published on 24 Mar. 2014 by L. Williams
