The Company of Rogues Series

The Viscount Needs a Wife

Although set within her Company of Rogues universe, Jo Beverley’s most recent novels have introduced new characters who are not part of the Rogues’ “inner circle”, even though some of the Rogues have made cameo appearances or been mentioned. This latest story, The Viscount Needs a Wife featu ...

Too Dangerous for a Lady

If Jo Beverley’s Company of Rogues series isn’t the longest running series in historical romance, then it’s certainly one of them, and it’s to Ms Beverley’s credit that she doesn’t appear to have run out of ideas yet! The central character in Too Dangerous for a Lady is – in the author ...

Lady Beware

Jo Beverley’s books have always been comfort reads to me. Lady Beware, the latest in her Company of Rogues series, fits nicely into this category. Lord Darien returns a hero from the Napoleonic Wars to claim a title that is blemished, to say the least. Because of his wastrel ancestor ...

To Rescue a Rogue

The Company of Rogues is finally complete. I’ve been waiting for Dare’s story for a while, along with every other fan of this series, I’m sure. Dare lived up to my expectations completely, although I had to warm up to his heroine, partly because she’s very young. Mara does mature (thankfully ...

The Rogue's Return

The newest entry in Jo Beverley's Company of Rogues series features The Missing Rogue, Simon St. Bride who, when mentioned at all in previous books, has simply been "in Canada." In The Rogue's Return we finally learn what Simon has been doing all this time. While Simon's family are tra ...

St. Raven

I've read more than my share of badly written, mundane historical romances featuring a handsome rake and a feisty, foot-stomping heroine. Most of the time, I sigh, toss the book and forget about it. St. Raven has a handsome rake for a hero and a heroine who is an adventuress at heart. But unlike wa ...

Hazard

I have read several pleasant historical romances this year, but none that gave me that hard-to-describe-but-I-know-it-when-I-feel-it reading rush. A few days ago, I reached into the TBR pile and picked up Jo Beverley's Hazard and began to read. It didn't take long for the rush to begin. I was deligh ...

Hazard

Jo Beverley definitely had noble intentions when she created Anne and Race, the hero and heroine of Hazard. The heroine isn't feisty, and "rake" isn't a word that even remotely begins to describe the hero. Yep, they're different from the usual Regency fare, all right. Problem is, they're boring. ...

The Dragon's Bride

So many authors, so little time. I've been hearing for years that Jo Beverley's books were really good, but although I own some of them, The Dragon's Bride is the first one I've read. While everyone else was waiting for Rothgar, I was off reading other things. Now I'm contemplating a trip to the boo ...
