My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The Regards of a Rogue is not just one book, it is three novellas that follow a group of friends, and associates. It is one excellent way to keep up with the couple that was in the story before. I found that very worthwhile. I love knowing what happens in the months following a story ends. I always find myself wondering if they were happy, fulfilled and able to really work past the difficulties that presented themselves during the unfolding of their novel.
The first novella is such a rewarding story. The hero is just that, a hero. I would take a man like him any day. He was charming,even if he is a little shy, commanding, even if he was new to that behavior, and he was appreciative of his opportunities. All these features made Levi my most favorite character in this trilogy of novellas. When Priscilla flirts with him, it is so sweet and sets a wonderful tone for the rest of the story.
The next novella in the book is concerning Hugh and Olive. Olive is not your raging beauty, she is, however, smart, loving and strong. She is an excellent character to mesh with these other well-rounded characters.
We are introduced to Max the hero of the third novella through Levi. We get to know him as a strong force of nature that will do whatever is asked of him by the King. He is a special type of soldier and he is intelligent. Max has a surprise and he needs help. When he reaches out for help, he inadvertantly places people in danger. It is a very well crafted story.
This book is filled with intelligent characters and I loved them all the more for it. There is a trio of brainiacs that are adorable. They are men of science, mathematics and anything new in the scientific world. It is a glimpse into a world I usually do not hear mentioned in books and it made it very special.
If I read it right, we might be in store for yet another chapter in the lives of these friends and associates. I am hoping that I read that correctly.
