Redeeming The Rogue Knight by Elisabeth Hobbes @ElisabethHobbes #Cheshire #MillsAndBoon 

Book blurb…

The spy who sought refuge…

When injured spy Sir Roger Danby comes asking for shelter at her inn, Lucy Carew is wary. He may be strikingly handsome, but the disgraced single mother has learnt the hard way with men like him. Against her better judgement, she gives him refuge.

Sir Roger has never been at the mercy of a woman before, and he’s never met one as mysterious and bewitching as Lucy. He hasn’t come looking for redemption, but Lucy is a woman who could reach in and touch his closely guarded heart…

My review…

I have always been a closet Mills and Boon fan and the historical fiction books are always worth a look especially those of the less well known periods of history for me. Elisabeth Hobbes is my favourite author in this genre so I’m always delighted when her newest book is launched. And this time I had even more to rejoice about as this is book two in the Danby brother series and I was curious to find out what had happened to Roger after we left him in The Blacksmith’s Wife  so it was great to meet him again here! Although I did love Rogers character in that book, he was definitely a bit of a “bad boy” and whilst women fell in love with this charismatic knight he seemed oblivious to their needs thinking only of his own. But he is about to meet his match here in single mother Lucy but she has more reason than most to give Roger a wide berth!

This is the second book I have read this week that is set here in my home county of Cheshire and although both were love stories they couldn’t have been more apart on the “romance spectrum” so to speak!    As with most historical romances, it’s all in the build up to the big HEA. And Redeeming The Rogue Knight is an absolutely sumptuous historical romance that has been meticulously researched and perfectly polished from start to finish. Roger is a dark and brooding hero who has been away from home since the family problems he faced previously in The Blacksmiths Wife. Now injured, he seeks refuge with Lucy, who’s brother has been travelling with him. His interactions with Lucy are full of sexual tension and their chemistry is palpable from their very first encounter. I couldn’t have picked a better heroine for Roger to pursue as she was perfect for him. Lucy was feisty and prickly, standing up to her nemisis and determined to do what she had to do to keep food on her table and a roof over her child’s head. Definitely a strong minded woman ahead of her time!

I loved every page of this compelling romance and have to admit that it’s actually my favourite of her books so far, made unputdownable by her enticing writing style and perfectly crafted historical detailing. It also helps that the cover promises a rather delectable Roger inside as well! A must read for fans of this genre!

Redeeming The Rogue Knight (Mills & Boon Historical) (The Danby Brothers, Book 2) is available to purchase now from Amazon UK

Meet the author…


Elisabeth grew up in York, where she spent her teenage years looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep her off her feet.

She achieved her dream of becoming an author after finishing third in Harlequin’s SYTYCW contest 2013 and being offered a two-book contract. When she isn’t writing, she spends her time reading and is a pro at cooking while holding a book!

Elisabeth lives in Cheshire with her husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names.
