Rogue

Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. For five years, they've worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore.

Publisher's Summary

Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dotcom entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband - first his work, and then his never-ending quest for fun, kept him constantly on the move, far away from Maxine and his family.

For five years, Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyle - dating a succession of beautiful, famous, and very young women - while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a world-renowned expert on childhood trauma and adolescent suicide. Then everything changes....

For Maxine, it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not - mature, grounded, and present. For Blake, it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes, and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter.

Now, Blake wants Maxine in his life again - as a partner in a humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For Maxine, the choice is clear. But Blake's sudden transformation - from carefree playboy to compassionate, responsible grown-up - raises questions she can't manage to answer...and some she's afraid to ask.

After all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life, about to marry Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, a.k.a. the Rogue, is a man capable of doing anything - except changing.

    "Nice Job"

    This was a good story. My only problem is that, like many of Danielle Steel's books, the ending was less than satisfying. It just wrapped up too abruptly to be believable. But aside from that, the storyline and characters were enjoyable.

    "Usually like Danielle Steel but not this time"

    The story was ok but it moved very slowly and not to allow development of characters or story line. The narrator was rather flat and sounded bored. Sorry but this is not one of Ms Steel's best.

    "Same, same, same"

    Beautiful story, as they all are. Same concept, different background, similiar characters. No change to her writing. If you like her style you'll like this book. She pops out one seemingly every couple of weeks, they all read the same, but you enojy the new bookcover and hope its different. It isn't. Her married character loves, loses, finds, learns and triumps. Thanks DS, now waiting for your next book (probably in two weeks)

    "So-so"

    Book was okay-different from most of Steele's books. It was interesting and was something you could listen to and leave it for awhile, come back and still know the story.

    "Danielle Steel does it again!"

    I cried, I laughed and I groaned but couldn't put it down and can't wait to listen to it again. Wasn't sure at first if I would like it but I have always enjoyed Danielle steels books in the past so I thought what the heck - give it a try. Blake seemed a little unreal at first but I'm sure there are men out there like him - Maxine was very real and you could feel her pain and her joy. Story has a predictable ending and even knowing that, I really liked it. (I always like happy endings.) Enjoy!

    "Another winner"

    I haven't found a book I didn't like by Danielle Steel, this one was so real to life today, but I could not be so friendly to my X-Husband.

    Story
    "Roguish fantasy that engages"
    What made the experience of listening to Rogue the most enjoyable?

    I could close my eyes and visualize the characters, while hearing the voices.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Blake was my favorite character because although he was ridiculously wealthy, his disposition was very appealing. He was carefree, like a spoiled adorable child. His relationships were exciting and fantasy-filled, yet through the eyes of the very wealthy. Also, he has a beautiful heart and is nice to everyone, including the stuffed-shirt Charles.


    What does Brian Keith Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Reading the book was great, but Lewis brought it to life. It gave the feeling of being there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When blake realized that he still loved Maxine, and when he stepped in and sent Charles running from the church. He actually sounded like a grown up who was defending his wife. It was perfect because Charles was a selfish, jealous, and very annoying man.


    Any additional comments?

    I had fun listening the his book. Thank you.

    "Danielle Steel's "Rogue""

    I really liked this tape. As mentioned here in the critics, the narrator was so superb. Is there are, will there be, a sequel to this book?. Love to hear what happens to Maxine, the kids and their Dad, Blake. Great story line and I loved the ending!
