Publisher's Summary

Lady Catherine Langdon is special, and not because she's the daughter of a duke. She comes from a long line of individuals born with extraordinary gifts, and she is one of the few who has a variation of all three. On the brink of war, she makes a decision that will irrevocably alter the course of her life - love or duty.

Asher Rossington, the marquess of Seabrook, decided at a very early age he would not live an idle life. His father forbade him from being a spy for the crown, but he chose to ignore it. Ash never regretted his choice but wished he could have repaired his relationship with his father before he died. Now, with the fate of the world in turmoil, he has to make another hard decision - remain a spy for king and country or go home and honor his father's title.

The Great War brings Catherine and Asher into each other's lives. Only time will tell if their destiny is to be together or if they will ultimately serve a higher purpose.

Intriguing!

I read this as a standalone, so don't know to what extent the characters overlap with other talebooks in the series. Characters and plot were fully developed within the bounds of the novel and the premise provided a different slant on a rather messy and difficult time in history, the Great War (WWI). Trench and biological warfare came into fierce and bitter play, devastating lives and bodies and inflicting a generation with what we now know as PTSD but was then called, when recognized at all, shell shock. Woven into the intrigue and generous dollops of history (caution, actual actions taken by characters were purely fictional albeit possibly based on reality) is a love story. Pragmatic and romantic by turns, I fully enjoyed listening to narrator Price Waldman's clipped tones and lovely rolling voice as the tale surrounded me.

Charming Historical Romance

I received a free copy of this book. I voluntarily left this review. All opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is the 10th book in the series Enduring Legacy. I have not read any of the prior books in the series. In my opinion, this is a standalone book and can be read without reading any of the prior books in the series. Some of the reviewers mentioned that there are character crossovers within the series and it is good to know how everyone fits into the series. I don't feel like a missed anything not knowing the background of every character in the book, however, other readers may find this important and want to start with the first book in the series. Having said that [or written it], I am certainly interested after reading this book to go back and read the previous books.

The book starts just prior to WWI. Lady Catherine attends a dinner where she meets Asher Rossington, a marquee. As they slowly begin to get to know one another and form a bond, they are separated by the War. Catherine decides to become a nurse for the wounded soldiers and Asher becomes a spy. The action picks up during the War, as each character deals with their own trials and with the hope of seeing each other again. I really liked the character Lady Catherine -- especially for the time period, she is a very strong and forthright woman who asserts her opnions when she feels it necessary. Lady Catherine also has a gift for foretelling the future - which was used effectively several times throughout the book to foreshadow coming events.

The narrator, Price Waldman, has the perfect voice for this book. He sounds somewhat aristocratic and utterly charming as he narrates the story.

Delightful, charming and touching

I really enjoyed this story, it has a little bit of everything in it from romance to danger and everything in between. I loved the characters, they are so likable and dearing. War is never easy but to start a romance at the beginning of it has got to be hard, not knowing if the one you love is a live or dead. I loved how the author stirs things up, giving a thrill to the danger and making you melt at the romance. The story has so many touching spots that it just makes you sign. It is life or death so much can happen and almost does, there were times I was on the edge of my seat.

The narrator did a wonderful job, his normal voice is a delight, loved his character voices. I always knew who was talking and what they were feeling. He gives wonderful emotions that make you hold your breath, and the romance in his voice is to die for. There are no repeating of words, no background noise, and no volume changes. It is a very clear audio that I didn't want to end.

Emotional ride


What a beautiful story taking place during the WW I.
Love that great which survives all the awfulness of war. Hurt, death, anxiety, and hope following the main characters through the whole story. Going and coming back to the loved ones. It has been a fabulous emotional ride.

I loved every second and seriously the narration was brilliantly done.

The title and the book description are inaccurate.

Both the title and the book description are inaccurate. Wildly so. I kind of even question it's classification as a romance. At least in the sense that the romance genre is one in which a a love story is central, where the "main plot centers around individuals falling in love and struggling to make the relationship work." That's present yes, but it's barely central.

I'm not actually claiming this isn't a romance, just that it doesn't feel as if the romance is central to the plot. The characters fall in love within a chapter of meeting and the whole rest of the book is the war. They pass each other on occasion and tell each other how much they love each other. But the love is established early and there is NO TENSION OR CHALLENGE TO IT. Only the inconveniences of war. And honestly Asher seems to have free movement around France. So, it hardly even feels like that much of an impediment.

Even the hard decision referred to doesn't exist. The two are firm in their non-decision to stay in France (as in they never even discuss anything else) until a singular event makes them both decide to return to England. (And that isn't honoring Asher's father's title. That is never a consideration in the narrative.) Since they both have the freedom and funds to make leaving happen in a day there is no difficulty in it.

Also, it's war and they can leave in a day. That tells you how much tension the war is really creating in the narrative. Not much.

Then there are Catherine's abilities. They are mentioned. But if you took them out of the book the plot wouldn't change at all. The single vision she tries to act on doesn't come to pass and the one that you'd expect her to act on (based on past behavior) she doesn't. The 'gifts' are a pointless plot device.

And as to the title? Asher is in no way a rogue. There is nothing even remotely roguish about him. In the last chapter he thinks to himself that he had been a rogue before meeting Catherine. But that's it. He's kind and gentle and loyal and respectful throughout the book, and there is no reference to him chasing other women in the past. HE'S NOT A ROGUE at all.

The writing here is perfectly competent, as is the narration. But I felt like the book was just a random series of events with very little tying it all together. Even characters appear and disappear with no point. Why did we meet James, have him disappear and be replaced with Julian? Plus, (as I said above) the description totally is inaccurate. This wasn't a total flop for me, but I didn't finish it particularly thrilled.

Note: I received a free copy of this audio book. I chose to read and review it.

Another winner by Brower!

A wonderful love story with the Great War providing a tumultuous backdrop of intrigue and romance.Lady Catherine Langdon is a strong and likable heroine. She wants to be more than a duke's a daughter. She wants to do something meaningful with her life. When the Great War begins, she finds her calling in a nurse's uniform. I enjoyed the magical threads of Catherine's special gift that were woven into the story.
Asher Rossington, the marquess of Seabrook, also wants to do more than run an estate and assume the title. Against his father's will, he spies for the government. And then when his father dies, he is never able to make peace with him. Asher is a hero in the truest sense and fell for him right away.
The secondary character are interesting and well developed. Oh, and I personally loved the cat. Price did another spot-on job bringing this story life.

Historical romance with some paranormal

I really liked this book except for the sex scene which really surprised me because the story has a sweet feel to it since it is based on romance and not sexual tension so when that happened I was shocked. I felt that it was put in for the sake of it. The book was doing fine without it, I didn't feel it needed it.
I did like some of the secondary characters and the relationship between the cousins, they made me laugh.
There is some violence.

I loved it!

Charming her Rogue by Dawn Brower is a wonderful listen. It takes place during WWI, which I am not as familiar with the time period. I thought the narration by Price Waldman was fantastic. He brought the characters to life. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I found this book to be a great standalone listen and part of a series. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

A relatable story and good listen.

The is not long story but it's packed with enough action and suspense to make it an interesting read. The relationship between the main characters developed slowly and they had to develop a lot of patience with each other as they were in war period and they both had active parts. So many people died and get life changing injuries in the war, it's heartbreaking, emotional, engaging and relatable.

Enduring love in the time of war

This book is rather thin on the romantic details of a budding relationship. And rightfully so. Our protagonists meet in Paris just before the Great War starts. They discover their feelings for each other in the midst of completing their duties to their country and countrymen, sacrificing almost everything for the war effort. They get married in a similar fashion and are forced to leave the war efforts behind before it has ended. So it comes with no surprise that they struggle a little with the transition between their lives in the midst of war and their lives as civilians. War is cruel and never more so than to the tenderest of hearts.

I enjoyed this book. While I appreciate the lack of romantic detail due to the backdrop of this story, I missed all that detail. The characters are lovely, their connection is deep and their romance is all the more meaningful for it.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
