ARC Review: As Rich as a Rogue by Jade Lee

Title: As Rich as a Rogue

Author: Jade Lee

Synopsis:

Third in the saucy, vibrant Rakes & Rogues Regency romance series from USA Today bestselling author Jade Lee

A most unusual wager

Mari Powel’s fiery Welsh temper is up. Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly, is back in town after six years romping around India making his fortune. Mari blames him for her social downfall and has spent all this time clawing her way back into the ton’s good graces. How dare he show up on his first day back and publicly embroil her in a bet involving long-awaited apologies, illicit kisses, and Lady Illston’s unruly parakeet? Mari is outraged, and is going to show him—and everyone else—what she’s made of. Little does she know, the unrepentant Lord Whitly has been dreaming of her all this time. Now he’ll do anything to win the wager—along with Mari’s heart.

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

This book is the second by Jade Lee that I have read and at the moment my favorite of hers. The story was such a fun historical romance and I couldn't get enough of it for a multitude of reasons, the first being how much I loved the characters. Strong heroines in historical romance are pretty much my favorite thing ever and Mari fit the bill perfectly with the way that she went up against Peter. As for Peter it was pretty impossible for me to not like him. Heroes like him in historical romance novels always get under my skin and make me love them so much.

Secondly, the romance in this book was wonderful, I really liked that it was a slow burn. It was fun to get to see Mari's opinion of Peter change over time from hatred to love. And in terms of Peter's feelings for Mari, I really liked that while he did mess with her throughout the book, that he still actually had her best interests at heart and I loved how invested and committed he was to her even if it wasn't always obvious to Mari.

Overall, this book was absolutely amazing in my opinion. Jade Lee truly delivered a pretty much flawless historical romance that is not only my favorite of hers, but is also easily one of my top ten favorite historical romances of all time.
