(Summary From Goodreads)
Notorious rogue, Lord Nathaniel Kingsley always tended to leap without thinking. Becoming a smuggler, adopting a sheep, getting engaged to Miss Patience Grey…
Patience has no need for a fiancé, or a husband. For once in her life, she wants to prove she’s just as good as a man and she does not need Nathaniel Kingsley getting in her way. With her brother injured, it is up to her to continue her family’s work…and that means tracking down a French spy and ensuring said spy will turn.
Unfortunately, no one believes she can do it alone. Which is where Nathaniel comes in.
Nate is happy to be of service. Why pass up the opportunity to repay an old friend, especially with a little intrigue along the way? Find the spy, play escort to Patience, return home to continue smuggling. Easy.
Or at least it would be if the stubborn Patience would let him do his job. The breeches-wearing woman is determined to do it all alone and, he has to admit, there’s something quite distracting about a woman in men’s clothes.
Can he keep his attention from her long enough to complete their mission and persuade Patience to let him do his job and protect her? A job he’s beginning to find he’s enjoying a lot more than he thought he would…
Oh Wow! What a great historical romance. I loved that the heroine, Patience, isn’t perfect. She’s just herself, she doesn’t how to be anyone else. I did love that she finally accepted that being a “woman” is not a weakness but she still planed to be the toyboy she always was. I loved that Lord Nate accepts Patience and falls in love with, just as she is! He’s not worried about changing her because he falls for the person she is. I loved that about this story. Fans of Ms. Holt are in for a treat. WHEN A ROGUE LOVES A WOMAN is fun, witty, sweet and full of love. A great read! I highly recommend this one to fans of historical romances. Can’t wait to read more from Ms. Holt.
