Publisher's Summary

The daring members of the Stud Club are reckless gamblers and no strangers to risk - until love raises the stakes in Twice Tempted by a Rogue.
Luck is a double-edged sword for brooding war hero Rhys St. Maur. His death wish went unanswered on the battlefield, while fate allowed the murder of his good friend in the elite gentlemen’s society known as the Stud Club. Out of options, Rhys returns to his ancestral home on the moors of Devonshire, expecting anything but a chance at redemption in the arms of a beautiful innkeeper who dares him to take on the demons of his past - and the sweet temptation of a woman’s love.
Meredith Maddox believes in hard work, not fate, and romance isn’t part of her plan. But when Rhys returns, battle-scarred, world-weary, and more dangerously attractive than ever, the lovely widow is torn between determination and desire. As a deep mystery and dangerous smugglers threaten much more than their passionate reckoning, Meredith discovers that she must trust everything to a wager her heart placed long ago.

AN AVERAGE REGENCY ROMANCE

Now I love an arrogant Rogue story who are always changed by the one woman he feels differently about and she tames his wicked ways (Mmmm delish). But with this book? well, I really don't know why it's got 'Rogue' in the title because Rhys is a scarred and battle weary Lord who has come home to rebuild his life however the demons of his childhood always haunts him as he walks through life and now they're also present as he revisits the ashes of his ancestral home. When he arrives he sees beautiful Meredith and 'instinct' takes over.... especially when he finds out she's a widow.

Meredith is a strong independent character who owns the local Inn and is trying to 'upscale' the look despite her brawling patrons. Her Dad worked for the family in the Stables and, even as a child, she has always been attracted to Rhys so when he walks into her Inn it brings back good and bad memories and stirs up her passions too. Despite secrets, Rhys suddenly has a new purpose in life - to start over, to rebuild his home, to refresh the village and to get married to Meredith but she has different plans..... and secrets of her own.

A nice, instant-connection type of romance with likeable characters but did it hold my attention.... sadly not. It was just all ok, nice, a bit of angst, a few dramas, a couple of surprises along the way, some sex and a bitter-sweet romance that gets tested by the truth. R.L.'s narration was, as always, spot on but not even she could stir much enthusiasm to this listen.

Worth a credit? Sadly No, I think I'll leave the Trilogy here.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

This was a chore to finish

I almost don't know what to say. I'm a fan of Tessa Dare. I've enjoyed her historicals and I was looking forward to this next book in the Stud Club story. But this book was almost painful to listen to. Even the fabulous Rosalyn Landor's narration may have added to my discomfort. Her interpretation of Rhys' voice made him seem always grumpy and curt. I don't know if I would have understood him to be that way if I were reading the words instead of listening. In any case, he was not at all likeable and I almost stopped reading. I found the story dull and the characters flat. It was very disappointing. This was a 2.5 in my opinion. Even the best author can have a bad day.
