Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.
—The London Hearsay, special society edition
Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown townhouse. A seemingly simple task, except the house, is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.
Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?
As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?
The Rogue is Back in Town the third novel in The Wayward Wallflowers written by Anna Bennett and published under St. Martin’s Press, is a Historical romance which takes place in London, Fall in the year 1818. Samuel returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother Nigel, to do this the only thing he had to do was take possession of a townhome that once belonged to their father…simple enough. However, once he arrives at the derelict townhome and met one Juliet Lacey, Sam knew that this mission was anything but.
I never read the previous novels in the series. Maybe the bases behind me not enjoying the story as much if I had a little backstory. Not to say this book couldn’t be read as a stand-alone because it most certainly can. It just that the reference of what transpired between Juliet and the Marquess was thrown up several times during this novel that I felt I was left out on a grand secret. Too, this book was rather slow at the beginning and didn’t really pick up until about the middle. The chemistry between the two characters I didn’t really feel the attraction. If it wasn’t for the loveable and eccentric uncle this might have been a one-star review.
