Publisher's Summary

Lady Sophie - Society Splash!

When Sophie, the least interesting of the Talbot sisters, lands her philandering brother-in-law backside first in a goldfish pond in front of all society, she becomes the target of very public aristocratic scorn. Her only choice is to flee London, vowing to start a new life far from the aristocracy. Unfortunately, the carriage in which she stows away isn't saving her from ruin. It's filled with it.

Rogue - Reign of Ravishment!

Kingscote - "King" - the marquess of Eversley, has never met a woman he couldn't charm, resulting in a reputation far worse than the truth, a general sense that he's more pretty face than proper gentleman, and an irate summons home to the Scottish border. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the journey becomes anything but boring.

War? Or More?

He thinks she's trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn't have him if he were the last man on Earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, making opposites altogether too attractive....

Bantering Rogue

I've read and enjoyed some of Sarah MacLean's books previously so when this book came up on sale I had to listen. Although this one is not my favorite it still was entertaining and fun. I enjoyed the fast pace of this book, the adventure, and the bantering of the characters. I wasn't a fan of some unnecessary cruel dialog from the "hero" which only made him seem more like an immature bully. But, thankfully he worked out some issues and grew up a bit. 😊

Note: This book does have strong language and explicit sex.

Loved the narration of Justine Eyre. I've listened to other books she's narrated and I've never been disappointed. Everyone has different tastes when it comes to narrators so please listen to the audio sample before you purchase any book.

Overall, I liked this book and will be getting the next in this series. 😉

Liked it

Any additional comments?

Pretty good story - good characters. Sophie and King suddenly meet and go for a wild ride for days. Sparks fly, tempers flare and romance ensues. Sophie's sisters are notorious in London. They were made ladies when their coal miner father "won" the title of Earle. Their behavior is not acceptable to the ton and they are ridiculed. Sophie is the youngest and least noticed of the sisters, but they are all called "soiled" and "dangerous". Sophie, who hates the aristocracy, snaps when her married eldest sister is embarrassed by her Duke husband at a summer party. Sophie takes drastic action against him resulting in her family being shunned by society. As she flees the party, Sophie runs into "King" who is in line for the title of Duke. It is a very bad meeting and gets worse - but fun to listen to. The performance is very good and I recommend this book for a fun listen. It is not great literature, but it is pleasant and entertaining. Kept my interest from the beginning to the end.

Freaking FAAAAANTASTIC

What an amazing book! I love how the story moved from one location to another and the creativity of the heroine in her garments during that time. She was brave and intelligent and interesting and a little spoiled and naive all at the same time. I can say I was NEVER bored at any single moment of this book and the push and pull between the H/H kept me glued to the book. A sigh worthy love match!

Narration

I loved the story. But the narration lacked some... The narrator sounded: bored. No other words to describe it.

pleasantly surprised

Very good story. better than I expected. narrator did excellent job with all voices except for King's. I had hoped he would sound more masculine and less like the snobbish aristocrats. excellent overall.

Sarah MacLean delivers!

Newly introduced to Sarah MacLean last fall I have devoured most of her book list. The Rogue Not Taken is a fast-paced wonderful storyline from start to finish. I love happy endings and this one takes it to the next level!

A Rogue listen

This isn't your normal English romance. This story is filled with a long journey with different twist and turns along the way. It dragged on sometimes, but other than that a OK listen. I am not sure if I want to read the next book in the series .

The Rogue Not Taken

I liked the book pretty well. It moved along at a nice pace. Narrator was good, though her Scottish accent leaves something to be desired.

Good story and narration!

This was a good story. I really enjoyed it. I liked Sophie a lot! She was strong, smart, resourceful, funny and witty. I love a strong heroine character. I liked King too. He was also a strong character. The chemistry between the two was good. It felt real and not forced. Not insta lust either. Nicely written sex scenes, not erotica not rated G.

The story line and plot was good, Some LOL moments. And Sophie escapades were fun. There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book.

As for the narration. It was good. Justine Eyre does a good job albeit all her male characters pretty much sound the same, at least they sound like men. She has a nice reading voice too. I think I will read the next book in the series.

should come with a sex warning!

I am sick and tired of downloading a regency romance to have it end up as practically porn! the story was good ( very similar to a gorgette hayer) but was just ruined by unnecessary humping. don't get me wrong I'm not a prude. but I just want a nice story!

Very funny, I laughed a lot

This one is better than its sequel. Mostly down to narration, although the Scottish accent in this was as bad, there was a lot less of it to be irritated by.
The story was well rounded and a great pace for two people falling in love.
I'd listen to this again.

Loved it

This was a really enjoyable book, I loved listening to King and Sophie together, so childish and funny at times and so loving at others.
It was a really long satisfying story, my only dislike was that the reader tended to put on a voice that made men, including King sound very stupid.
