Early Review: The Rogue Is Back in Town by Anna Bennett

Dec 26, 2017

Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.                     —The London Hearsay, special society edition

Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.

Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?

As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?


The Rogue Is Back In Town by Anna Bennett is the third book in the Wallflower series.   I enjoyed I Dared the Duke and was hoping that this book would take me to my happy place. I could never connect with Juliette and Sam. The story felt right in the beginning and then veered off for me.  I felt they made bad decisions and it weighed down the story. Julie was too bold by far. Sam was the seducer but it felt as Julie was making all the moves.  I hope the next book in the series will carry me away.
