  1. 4.25 5 You ve ruined me I don t know if I can breathe without you I don t know how I can ever live without you James TrevillionMuch better than my expectations Thoroughly beautiful I postponed reading this book for so long, considering I wasn t impressed with Phoebe s character in the previous book I found her quite stubborn, so I was afraid she would get on my nerves in this installment But oh, how wrong I was to think of her that way She was nothing like I thought she would be Honestly, her co [...]


  2. I m going to tell you that I might be a smidge biased about this book as this is really one of my favorite tropes and I m a sucker for a Captain, any kind of captain in fact from Captain Jack Sparrow, to James Tiberius Kirk, to Captain Malcolm Reynolds and let us not forget Captain Thorn the Lunar Chronicles , Both Captains of the Queensgaurd, Hector Girl of Fire and Thorns and Amon Byrne Seven Realms and last but not least Captain America But this has the added bodyguard who falls in love with [...]


  3. 7 May 2015 My thoughts upon finishing Dearest RogueWarning Do not begin this book unless you are prepared to stay up all night finishing it Dearest Rogue may be my favorite Maiden Lane book yet The romance between Phoebe and Trevillion will sweep you up, and besides that there is adventure, mystery, and an adorable child 29 May 2015Elizabeth Hoyt s books just keeps getting better As I noted in my five star review of her last book, Darling Beast, she has taken the Maiden Lane series in a new dire [...]


  4. 3.5 Stars It s no surprise that this is my favorite historical series Only a few authors are on my auto buy list and Elizabeth Hoyt is one of them This story was sweetwhich is not bad but I m so used to the action, suspense and intrigue from the other books that I kind of missed it it in this oned I m especially missing the Ghost of St Giles I really wish there could be a fourth one This was a sweet read, and my first book where the heroine is blind EH is such an amazing author that she somehow [...]


  5. 4 A buddy read with the Romantics at the MacHalo Freaks Because we love love Yes, we are back in 18th century England, Maiden Lane, ravaged by Gin and poverty, crime and filth Well, that is on Maiden Lane In the houses of the Ton, life seems much easier and gentile It does not matter where or when you are, money and privilege are always a plus I don t want you hurt, he said gruffly I know Her smile was winsome But falling isn t the end of the world I may fall, it s true in fact, I probably will [...]


  6. Better than the last one High praise, indeed And, sure this couple was also boring, but the story was sweet and actually a little bit believable There was actual chemistry.So, we have Phoebe, a blind girl who gets all annoyed when people want to help her walk without falling into a hole And, James, her bodyguard who is a bit crippled from injuries to one of his legs who gets annoyed if anyone wants to help him in any way Perfect match They fight, she resents him, he secretly loves her, he leaves [...]


  7. I ve given this an A at AAR, so that s 4.5 stars rounded up.While I ve enjoyed all the books in Elizabeth Hoyt s Maiden Lane series, Dearest Rogue has been the one I ve most eagerly anticipated In fact, it s one of my most highly anticipated books of 2015 Perhaps that s a little unusual, considering this is the eighth book in a long running series, but something about the pairing of the older, world weary, dour ex officer with the young, vital but blind sister of a duke is intriguing and complet [...]


  8. So sweet Wasn t sure how I would like this one Trevillion is a bit of a moody character in the previous books but he ended up being a real sweetheartEVILLION woke the next morning as he often did all at once, at exactly six of the clock , and with a stiff cock Of course Trevillion was not of her station so did not feel worthy of her.God, he was a cad You ve ruined me I don t know if I can breathe without you I don t know how I can ever live without you Then don t she murmured into the eternal da [...]


  9. This romance was very well written and a delight to read An old soldier is hired to protect a young blind lady Durring there relationship they fall in love and have a beautiful romance which was fraught with parils from kid nappers, and the young lady s brother who is a Duke It has a very happy ending.Enjoy and Be Blessed.Diamond


  10. Like many fans of the Maiden Lane series, I ve been curious about a story for Lady Phoebe Batten, a young woman who s been progressively losing her sight over the course of the previous books in the series, and one for Captain James Trevillion, who started out as sort of the Sheriff of Nottingham to the previous heroes and then became an ally Their pairing is a fairly obvious choice for romance vulnerable heroine with protective hero Who also has his own vulnerability, because of a leg injury In [...]


  11. Tosses kobo aside Steeples fingers Leans forward Raises eyebrows Oh I ve found another for my collection Plucks James from pages Adds to heroes I want to lick shelf I ve enjoyed Phoebe s parts in the books prior to this and her book was not at all disappointing.I also l enjoyed the image of Trevillion just moments behind each Ghost He s a clever and a tenacious one Apparently he s also the strong, silent, steady type It doesn t hurt, nope, in fact it helps, that he appears to ride horses like so [...]


  12. Another sexy, suspense filled, and romantic read In this one the heroine is blind, and she falls for her bodyguard who we have come to know in the past books as Trevillion He takes things in his own hands when it comes to protecting his charged his life and hers will never be the same.I am still loving this series, and I definitely recommend this one for anyone who is interested in Historical Romances Elizabeth Hoyt does a brilliant job of creating a steamy and exciting romance This series is a [...]


  13. 3.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Lady Phoebe has been steadily going blind for the last couple years and as the sister to a powerful and rich duke, her brother hires a bodyguard to keep her safe Captain James Trevillion used to ride the streets of St Giles chasing down gin makers until an accident left him lame in one leg but still highly capable he becomes Phoebe s bodyguard The aristo [...]


  14. It s 4,5 because of the explanation in the end about the view spoiler whole kidnapping business hide spoiler Pretty ridiculous, I guess I expected something complex haha but oh well The romance part was amazing, James is so lovely sigh so that got me rounding up to 5.


  15. Review Dearest Rogue I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review, thanks to Netgalley this does not alter my view of this title Summary Lady Phoebe, has known for most of her life, that she was losing her vision, and she knows that soon she won t be able to see anything at all not even the light Phoebe is a woman of strength, and is determined to not let her very over protective brother, smother her in safety, she wants to live and experience life even if she is blind, she knows that t [...]


  16. In a nutshell I almost gave up on Dearest Rogue I was already halfway finished and there still wasn t any significant developments in James and Phoebe s relationship To make matters worse, I was already at my wits end with Phoebe and her spoiled attitude Maximus was equally irritating with his fiercely autocratic and arrogant disposition Save for James, I really couldn t give a fuck about any of the characters it s my first book in the Maiden Lane series so I don t have any prior attachments to [...]


  17. The eighth addition to the Maiden Lane series by Elizabeth Hoyt Captain James Trevillion is in the employed of Maximus, Duke of Wakefield, and charged with the protection of his sister, Lady Phoebe Batten He takes his job seriously but when a kidnap attempt is made he has his doubts on his abilities Lady Phoebe lost her sight and must rely on others but that doesn t mean she doesn t want her independence She wants to be allowed to fall and get back up but her brother is determined to keep her fr [...]


  18. Phoebe and Trevillion were great, but I miss how it all started With the Makepeaces and the Ghost of St Giles Excited to read about Asa next.

  20. 3.5 stars, possibly 4 The heroine is BLIND, so I just had to read this Georgian romance, set in London and Cornwall sometime around 1745 I am drawn to stories with blind characters In this case, Phoebe wasn t born blind but began losing her sight at age 12 In this story, she is 21 and totally blind As younger sister to the Duke of Wakefield, she feels overly protected, cosseted, almost caged The Duke hires Captain James Trevellian, wounded in the King s Horse Dragoons, to act as Phoebe s bodygua [...]



  21. This is the 8th book in the Maiden Lane series but Ms Hoyt still continues to captivate me with her unforgettable characters, compelling plots and sensual romances.This book has a very different feel to the others in the series and I think it is because it is very character driven There is mystery and suspense enough to keep the story moving but the main focus is definitely on Phoebe and James which I really enjoyed Their romance is tender, sweet and passionate and just so beautifully written.Ph [...]


  22. LOVED that Lady Phoebe was so confident despite her blindness and LOVED that James Trevillion, a former dragoon with a bum leg, was so committed to her Even with the super sexy love scenes, this was an amazingly sweet story Nonstop action, amazing characterizations, compelling dialogue, and an all around wonderful story.


  23. Happy Release Day I enjoyed this immensely While Dearest Rogue is part of a series, Maiden Lane Series, it can be read as a standalone I did like seeing characters from past books make an appearance, though When the book starts, Lady Phoebe is shopping with her bodyguard, James Trevillion He s a former dragoon officer whose badly injured leg caused him to find another line of work and he s been her guard for about six months Guarding the lady has been an easy job so far That s when he notices fo [...]


  24. Elizabeth Hoyt has done it again, wow ing me with another swoon worthy romance in her Maiden Lane series Lady Phoebe Batten has come a long way from the pudgy, bespectacled little sister we met back in Lady Hero s book She has grown into a woman who is intelligent, spirited, and now, completely blind Captain James Trevillion, formerly of the King s dragoons, serves as her bodyguard.The situation is difficult for both James and Phoebe James is used to being a leader of men, capable and strong Sin [...]


  25. Lady Phoebe, younger sister of the Duke of Wakefield, has been slowly losing her sight since the age of twelve Now, at the age of one and twenty, she has lost her sight completely and is now constantly shadowed, at her brother s insistence, by the retired dragoon, Captain Trevillion or James as she prefers because one can always rely on a James She is irked by his constant presence thinking of him as the one thing keeping her from true freedom, but it s not until he leaves her brother s employ t [...]


  26. Arc provided by Forever Grand Central Publishing through NetgalleyRelease Date May 26Engaging story with likeable characters but with one too many view spoiler kidnapping scenes hide spoiler Okay, there were three scenes _ What I enjoyed about this story was basically the characters Phoebe and James make a really sweet couple I guess people who have been following this series, know this already , and I thought that their relationship with their families was well done.The guy isn t overbearing _ [...]


  27. 4 stars Dearest Rogue was a breath of fresh air It was exactly the book I needed and it landed into my hands in a moment when I had no idea what I wanted to read I have been on a contemporary new adult kick for quite some time, and I didn t realize how much I needed a change of genre until I read this book This book has rejuvenated my love for this series In my opinion, the past few books have started to drag, and I was even questioning whether or not I would read this book When I learned that P [...]


  28. Hmm, this was a sweet story, I really liked both the hero and the heroine, but I ve got to say it wasn t up to the usual high standard set by this author Not that it s a bad story, just fairly ordinary The story seemed rather light, outside of the era and a bit forced view spoiler The villain had been in previous books and I actually thought the author was setting him up to be a mysterious future hero, but lo and behold, he was being set up to be an extremely weak, really weak villain in this bo [...]
