C J Chase: Redeeming the Rogue

From the back cover:

Her Ally… … or Her Enemy?

With a chip on her shoulder and a pistol in her pocket, Mattie Fraser comes to London determined to find answers. What fate befell her brother after he was forced to join the British navy? Military official Kit DeChambelle knows something, she’s sure. But can she trust him—or anyone— as a conspiracy of silence surrounds her?

Kit knows altogether too much—about the guilt that drives Mattie, and the peril she faces. The battle against Napoleon is over, but for Kit, peace is elusive. In helping this brave, stubborn woman, he may be endangering her further. Especially if she learns about the orders he’s received, placing them on opposite sides… …

Amanda’s review:

I had read a few good reviews about this novel and it sounded like the kind of book I love to read. So, when  a friend offered to loan it to me, I jumped at the chance. This story ticked all the boxes for me — history, romance, with a touch of mystery and suspense. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about how I could get back to it, wondering what was going to happen next.

CJ Chase took her characters to a place where I wondered how she was going to turn it around. How could Kit and Mattie find love after all they had been through, both in their pasts and their adventures together? And yet, they did, and so beautifully, it left me with a satisfied sigh.

And then there was Julian, Kit’s brother, who intrigued me no end. I discovered today, that his story will be told in CJ Chases’ next novel, The Reluctant Earl, to be released in 2013. You can be sure I will be keeping an eye out for that one! If you love historical romance, you will love Redeeming the Rogue.
