    One thought on “The Irish Rogue”

    1. Emma Jensen is one of those authors who's not writing anymore, and I mourn her absence. She knows how to write a very involving, enjoyable love story. The dialogue is excellent, and the chemistry between Christor and Ailis was outstanding. There were moments that got downright steamy, although this is definitely a sweet romance. It's all about description of feelings and the way the couple interacts that gives a book a steam factor for this reader. And some pretty sizzling kissing scenes. Ms. Je [...]

    2. look I know I just started a new job and all but here me out: what if I went back to Ireland on Monday instead. What. If.

    3. This book had great promise but failed to live up to it's potential. I loved the heroine. She is fiercely independent, smart, witty and passionate. I could easily identify with her and I think if I were a 19th century Irish gentry woman, I would be a lot like her. The hero has potential to be great. Like the heroine, he's deeply passionate and caring. He starts to bear his soul to her and I can see why they would love each other, but then the book derails from there. Christor acts like a gorilla [...]

    4. I just reread this book, which I had on my keeper shelf. I wondered whether I'd still like it ten years after the first read. And yes, it's still that good. First, I love the hero. Second, the setting in Dublin is really well done. It's rare to find a Regency, trad or otherwise, set in Ireland. Although there is a highwayman element, which I usually find contrived, in this case, it's set in the hero's past. And it works. Finally, Jensen has done a great job with the sexual tension and it's great [...]

    5. Clean by the barest of standards. No pun intended. They don't do anything, but make little comments and have inappropriate thoughts. He does dip too low for a kiss once and is interrupted. Clean? You be the judge.

    6. This book comes to me by way of Katelynne- thank you for the borrow!!! Now I don't read too many romance books but I more than appreciated being taken back to Dublin. Nothing like Irish speech patterns to jog my memory- fantastic! :)
