Princess Arianna's brother is missing, lost in the dangerous brothels on Batuck. She can't find him alone so she hires a legend to help. When they meet, their heartstones glow. The legend -- the Rogue, a man called McTavish -- is her mate.
Decker's been studying McTavish from behind a desk for years. Catching him is his chance to earn a much-desired promotion in the Union Alliance. Then the Queen, Arianna's stepmother, who is responsible for the prince's disappearance, contacts him with a deal: find her son before McTavish does and use him as bait, and she'll make sure he gets that promotion. Except...
Decker can't stand her actions against her son and turns on the Queen. He contacts McTavish and Arianna to make a deal. The biggest surprise when they meet isn't that he plans to go through with it. It's that his quarry and the princess are his mates.
On the run from a vicious queen, the three must learn what can bond a princess, a law man, and a rogue...in order to save their lives and the throne.
The Rogue is a book hot enough to melt Hershey Kisses. When you have a rogue with a brogue on the wrong side of the law, a princess on a mission to find her missing brother; then toss in a law officer who is tired of sitting behind a desk and five years of determination to bring in a outlaw then you have a hot trio with a basket of surprises.
When love and a lifemate or mates is found, by the glow and heat from a stone, a hand pick stone called the Heart Stone, which is worn around the neck of those who are lucky enough to find their personal stone. Can three people put aside everything they want and believe in, and join when their Heart Stone glows are will they turn from what fate has picked for them as their mate and go their own way.
I enjoyed reading The Rogue but would recommend starting with book one, even though book 6 works okay as a stand-alone book and is extremely good. Things like the history of finding ones Heart Stone and true mate or mates are cover more in depth in the first few books of the series. The plot in The Rogue was good and fast paced with a lot of action and a lot of hot sex scenes. I dearly love the rogue brogue in the book, which made me think of a hot Irish or Scottish man. I found myself falling for the Rogue McTavish because in my book he was not the bad guy everyone made him out to be even though he was a law breaker. Then again, I had to laugh when the lawman Decker came face to face with McTavish and the princess Arianna and things started to heat up.
"The Rogue" was an all around good story and I would recommend it to my friends.
