Every Bit a Rogue

Zebra: Kensington. (Ellinghams, Bk. 4). Feb. 2020. 336p. ISBN 9781420146226. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Abandoned at the altar, Jon Burwell, Viscount Kendall, hides behind his scientific pursuits to cope with the humiliation. For Emma Ellingham, rejection has resulted in a loss of her passion to sketch and paint, which she used to do earnestly. In Jon’s workshop, however, Emma’s dormant creative impulses spring back to life when she discovers his latest invention. Reluctant to allow anyone to view his creations, Jon banishes Emma from the lab, but not before the two get caught in a storm and Emma is compromised. Facing scandal and being forced to wed and relive their painful pasts, the couple will have to rely on each other in ways they never expected.
VERDICT Basso (Intimate Betrayal) allows for romance to kindle and build between Emma and Jon with just a touch of drama to keep the plot compelling. This is perfect for readers who prefer a Regency romance driven by the characters’ desires rather than an outside element of suspense.
