In the fourth book of Rogue Hearts series focus in on Grant Amesbury. He is investigating the main suspect of a planned assassination of the prime minister, and that puts him right in the company of Jocelyn Fairley. 

When I started reading this series, this is the Amesbury brother I really wanted to find happiness. His experience with his father and in the war have left him hardened. Jocelyn, a character I identified with from the start, is the perfect compliment to him, being cheerful and happy most of the time. How they come to love each other, amidst an investigation and search for the truth, is a wonderful read.

Anyone who has read the first three books, or just enjoys a sweet romance, will love this book.

We loved the fourth book so much that we’ve included Bethany’s reviews for the first three books in the series as well!

#1 The Stranger She Married

 With what’s left of her family relying on her to marry well and save them all, Alicia Palmer is faced with accepting the offer of a man more than twice her age, the man who killed her brother, or a masked, crippled man she does not know.  

From the start, I really liked Alicia and I wanted her to find some happiness. The details in this novel are just wonderful and really drew me in immediately. Donna Hatch’s writing style is enjoyable, and the fact that she is an author who keeps her books clean, makes me love the world she has created even more.

If I had to find anything I didn’t like, it would be some of the contractions used (‘she’d, he’d, and so on). They aren’t necessarily used incorrectly but I did notice them quite a few times. 

I would definitely recommend this for any readers who want a historical read that’s clean and fun with just the hint of mystery.


#2 The Guise of  A Gentleman 

Elise is a young widow who is determined to keep her freedom as a widow, raise her son, and be content with her life. However, when she saves a far too handsome man from being killed, her life goes in a completely different direction. 

I adored Elise from the start. I liked that her first husband was a good man and she wanted to remain loyal to him even though he had been dead for some time. Her desire to keep her independence is believable. And there are pirates, which is always a plus, right? I also like how the chapters alternate between her and Jared, as it did in the first book between Cole and Alicia, and really gives us a good look at them both.

Again, the only thing I did not like is the same as in the first book, and that is the frequent use of the contractions ‘they’d’, ‘he’d’, and she’d. They are not incorrect, it just seems too modern for my taste. 

This is a book for anyone who likes some adventure with their sweet romance.



#3 A Perfect Secret 

Blackmailed into a terrible marriage, Genevieve’s life has been miserable and she makes the decision to end it all. The man whose heart she broke pulls her from the river and the fight to keep her obsessive husband it on. 

The youngest Amesbury son, whom his siblings constantly tease as being the ‘perfectly perfect Christian’ is the hero of this book and I was really happy to have learn more about him. His older brothers always treated him as the youngest in the other books and I was eager to see him shine. The fact that after all Genevieve put him through, he still had feelings for her, was kind of sweet.

As with the other two books, I really only have one complaint: the reliance on contractions. I have the feeling I am being too particular about this, but it is something that I noticed. It definitely did not take away my enjoyment of the story, though, so I really can’t complain. 

If you want a story about true love winning out, and a bit of brotherly bonding thrown in, this is definitely the book for you.
