Review: Sometimes a Rogue – Mary Jo Putney

Even the most proper young lady yearns for adventure. But when the very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister discover they’ve abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay with her life…

Rob Carmichael survived his disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a talent for rescuing damsels in distress. But Sarah is one damsel who is equal to whatever comes. Whether racing across Ireland with her roguish rescuer or throwing herself into his arms, she challenges Rob at every turn.
My thoughts:
Yes it’s a series, no you do not have to read it in order. I did not even realize that I had read book 2 in this series before. I just jumped in and it was all good.
Sarah gets kidnapped and taken to Ireland. She is brave, calm and I liked her. I have not read her sister’s book but I do not mind if she is not as sunny. Rob is the more damaged one with a chip on his shoulder, but he is great and kind.
The book was more or less two stories. Wild chases through Ireland and danger at every turn. And then the second part which I really can’t say much about because it will spoil things. But the second part is calmer, there is romance there, old friends and things fall into place. Yes they did fall into place a bit too easily and the end was wrapped up a bit too fast.
But the book was good, it was kind of different. More talking, more thinking. No ton.

    I've read two Putney books before and really enjoyed them. I'm looking forward to more of her work =) I haven't read anything recent so this will be great!

    Nice review! I just finished this book. I love the series and thoroughly enjoyed this installment, but you are right, you don't absolutely need to read the other books. It is fun to follow the characters as they move from being secondary characters in one or more books to being the H&H of their own book, though.

    It's fun to have read them first, but yes they work well on their own. And sometimes it's nice to be reassured. I know that when I have had a HR book and not book 1 and then I have been scared to read it
