Mini Review: The Rogue's Proposal by Jennifer Haymore

Rating: ★★★★ stars
Date published: November 19th, 2013
Publisher: Forever
Synopsis: Lord Lukas Hawkins, the rakish second son of the House of Trent, has never found a wager he couldn't win or a woman he couldn't seduce—until his search for his missing mother leads him to a mysterious encounter with a beautiful stranger.

Luke's mother has been missing for months, and while his honorable older brother Simon, Duke of Trent, leads the official investigation from London, Luke sets out on a somewhat seedier path. Sources have told him his mother was last seen with a scoundrel named Roger Morton, but their association isn't clear. Was she kidnapped or did she go willingly?

While searching for Morton, Luke meets Emma Anderson, a secretive beauty with her own reasons for hunting Morton. At first Luke laughs at the idea of allowing a woman to join him in his search, but soon Emma's insights into Morton—like the woman herself—prove impossible to resist.

What I Thought:

The good news is the book matches the cover.  It's hot!  I really enjoyed the mystery aspect and I'm usually not a mystery reader.  Like I said earlier the chemistry between Lukas and Emma was off the charts!  I loved Emma and Lukas.  Lukas's past broke my heart.  I completely understood why he had such a hard time around his siblings.  I felt he was really strong even after experiencing everything he did.  Emma is loyal and loving to those she cares for and I love how she was willing to go the extra mile.  This is my first Jennifer Haymore book.  It also turns out this is the second in a series.  Luckily I didn't feel lost and was able to keep up with everything.  I can't wait to read more by her.  She's definitely someone to watch out for!
