The Dangerous Love of a Rogue
Release date: January 22, 2015
Publisher: Harper Impulse
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

The next book in Jane Lark's Kindle best-selling Regency romance series!

“The game is on with Pembroke’s little sister…” Lord Andrew Framlington watched Miss Mary Marlow. The woman had been warned to keep away from him, but she had a little contrary in her soul. She had not been deterred. Perhaps she had a taste for bad hidden beneath her cold denials, or a liking for naughtiness in her soul – either of which appealed.

“Stop pretending you do not like me…” Drew had urged Mary, "Stop running…" Her body urged her to as much as he did. Something pulled her towards him. Something unknown and all consuming… and yet how could she disobey her father and her brother…

My Rating: 5 Roses

Heart-achingly emotional and unquestionably romantic, The Dangerous Love of a Rogue was yet another fantastic regency romance from Jane Lark. I absolutely loved this book. It broke my heart and made me smile in turn and I enjoyed every bit of it.

Neither character was a perfect person but their flaws only made them more realistic. Mary jumped to conclusions of definitely suffered from a lack of trust in Drew. But, she was also fair and kind enough to rewrite her judgments and give Drew the chance he deserved.
Drew was extremely wary and sharing his inner self would have made his attempts to prove himself to Mary a lot easier. But, he also genuinely loved her and wanted to make her happy, knowing that he would have to change his habits if he was to have the type of family he wanted. Both characters were great and I really liked them.

The romance was wonderful. There were definitely obstacles along the way but Mary and Drew never ceased loving each other. They were definitely perfect together and they had some steaming hot chemistry as well.

The plot moved quickly, keeping me hooked from start to finish. Jane Lark is simply the best as crafting realistic characters that tug at your heart, along with portraying deep emotions in a way that draws your in. Both of those characteristics were present here and ensured that this was a fabulous book. I really liked the story and the ending was perfect.

The Dangerous Love of a Rogue was a brilliant historical romance and I really loved it. Romance lovers, this is a must read.

About the Author:
Jane Lark reads at The Festival of Romance, 2013
Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate, and emotional Historical and New Adult Romance, and a Kindle top 25 bestselling author.

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write.

Now Jane is writing a Regency series and contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others’ imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane’s favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was ‘Katherine’ a story crafted from reality.

Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses them to create more realistic plots.

‘Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it’s wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.’

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.
