Rogue's Honor Saint of Seven Dials (Книги 1), Brenda Hiatt.

In an effort to escape her stepmother's matrimonial machinations and indulge her bluestocking tendencies, Lady Pearl Moreston dons a servant's garb and heads off with her maid to work for an evening. Rogue's Honor Saint of Seven Dials (Книги 1), Brenda Hiatt.

Book 1 of 4 in the Saint of Seven Dials Series. Rogue's Honor was another delightful well written Historical Romance by Brenda Hiatt. I loved the H/H Luke di Santo/ Earl of Hardwyce and Lady Pearl Moreston daughter of the Duke of Oakshire. Both characters were intelligent and enjoyable characters too read. I like the way all the characters were written and the back story of why Luke became The Saint of Seven Dials. It had some mystery and a villain, as well as unknown and surprising facts revealed about our hero.

Lady Pearl Moreston would first sacrifice her virtue and live life as a chambermaid before she'd acquiesce to her stepmother's demands and wed overbred Lord Bellowsworth! In fact, posing as a maid is precisely what Pearl does to escape her fate -- a deception that could prove disastrous for the impetuous bluestocking. Luckily, Luke St. Clair comes to her rescue. Now here is a man worth losing one's innocence to: strong, dashing, daring, worldly...and nary a drop of noble blood in him!

Luke is intrigued by this minx who seems unusually knowing for her tender years...and whose intoxicating beauty makes him light-headed in her presence. But Luke is not the adventurer the winsome Pearl believes him to be. And though her soft, succulent lips are begging to be kissed, Luke is honor-bound to never reveal to her his true identity. Yet how long can passion's flames be restrained before two delightful deceivers are forced to drop their masks and surrender to the sweet, sensual fire?

l am somewhat torn on my review for this story. I had a hard time believing our H didn't look into his past at all. More bewildering was when he discovers the news he is still a bystander. Did he not think for one moment the news could help the people he was also assisting? Then our h has the stepmother from Hell and she never once decides to talk to her father, who seemed very approachable. Why didn't she tell him the awful thing her stepmother was trying to ruin her in. Because the stepmother never was found out bothered me.

There is mildly descriptive lovemaking, outside of marriage several times, not erotic. We have a bad villain, some twists and little suspense thrown in, but also slow at times. Some of the story line near the last part of the book was hard to swallow, far fetched.

Is it worth the free price yes. There are some interesting part and as I said some suspense. It is fiction, so keep that in mind. We do get HEA, no cliffhanger, no cheating. (ljb)
Luke is the notorious thief Saint of Seven Dials. Lady Pearl is the daughter of the Duke of Oakshire. Pearl poses as a maid during her escape from her stepmother's manipulations. Luke meets Pearl while she is pretending to be a maid. When the opportunity presents itself, Pearl runs back to Oakshire and her life as Lady Pearl. Luke, posing as a noble, discovers her life among the nobility. Knowing each other's secrets allows for an intimacy between them. Pearl helps Luke claim his heritage among the nobility. Will Luke be able to hold onto his new title? Can the lovers find happiness despite the stepmother's manipulations?

This novel is a page-turner. The characters are well-rounded. The plot and subplots are finely tuned. I look forward to the next book in this series.
Rogue's Honor was another delightful well written Historical Romance by Brenda Hiatt. I loved the H/H Luke di Santo/ Earl of Hardwyce and Lady Pearl Moreston daughter of the Duke of Oakshire. Both characters were intelligent and enjoyable characters too read. I like the way all the characters were written and the back story of why Luke became The Saint of Seven Dials. Stealing from the Rich and giving to the Poor was a creative storyline. Pearl was a real treasure to read. She is everything you want to read about a female lead in a HR story. Now the step mother I think she dissevered to be found out how mean and demeaning she was to the Dukes daughter Pearl. I wanted the Duke to give an embarrassing sit down and send her away to live her life out in the Country to stop her scheming. This is the only part that fall short in the entire story. Obelia the Duchess Step Mother just gets away with her mean spirited scheming against Pearl. Other then that this story was perfect!! I Highly Recommend Rogue's Honor.
Lady Pearl eludes, or more or less runs away to escape a compromising situation planned by her stepmother to force her into a betrothal not of her choosing. She accepts a position as a temporary servant that evening at an event of the ton. To avoid being discovered at the gathering she flees the premises with another temporary servant, who also happens to be a thief who had pilfered some valuables from the event being held and wished to leave also before the theft is discovered. Little does Pearl realize that her savior of the moment is Luke St. Clair, a Robin Hood type thief, the notorious Saint of Seven Dials. Luke initially assumes Pearl is simple-minded and tries to protect her. The longer they are together he begins to realize that she is not who he originally thought she was and is keeping a secret. Likewise, Pearl knows Luke is not being completely honest with her.

So I won't spoil the reading pleasure of new readers I will curtail anymore narrative of the story. Rogue's Honor was a charming and enjoyable regency read worthy of 3 1/2 to 4 stars. It had some mystery and a villain, as well as unknown and surprising facts revealed about our hero. Pearl was very instrumental in uncovering the family history of Luke and discovering the true nature of the villain.
Luke is The Saint of the Seven Dials, a Robin Hood type hero. He rescues Pearl - Purdy, a young woman fleeing the same ball where he has absconded with jewels belonging to the hostess. He learns she has no where to go and takes her to his lodging in a poor and rundown area of London, where garbage, rats, and the desperate abound. Within hours of their meeting, Pearl has saved a child, there, from poisoning and set the broken leg of another. She thereby earns the admiration of "The Saint". She finds herself admiring Luke as well, since it is obvious that he does what he can to help those who are in need.

The mean step-mother is plotting to marry off Pearl to anyone, even if Pearl doesn't wish to marry at all. She want's to remain single past her 21st birthday, in order to inherit the property that she plans to run applying new methods that Pearl feels will be successful.

The story is a little sexy (not overdone), has some intrigue about Luke's past, and social/ moral issues are highlighted a bit. The H/h characters are suited to one another. However, while it was a quick and fun read, I didn't find it to be exceptional.
This is a story about a young lady that wanted to help the poor but also wanted to see how they lived.Her father was a Duke and wanted her to marry but only if she found someone that she wanted.If she didn't marry by her leagl birthday her father said she could have their Estate in the country. This was her goal but her step mother had different plans. She wanted the girl and married so her son could get the Estate. Pearl over heard her step mother making plans to trap her into marriage. This is when she decided to leave and take a job as a maid.Being a Lady she had no training but had to get away. Of course this was not a good ideal because the elites would know who she was. She was leaving her first job because she was recognized. Along came Luke St. Clare to help her. He was also on the run. He was known as Saint of Seven Dials. He would steal from the rich to give to the poor.He struggled all his life until he found out who he really was. Read to find out how their lives came together. Really enjoyed the story.
