Once Dishonored

Zebra: Kensington. (Rogues Redeemed, Bk. 5). Oct. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9781420148114. pap. $8.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Spurned by the society in which she once flourished, Kendra Douglas seeks justice for the wrongs committed against her by her former husband. With her reputation in tatters and her son kidnapped, Kendra needs allies in order to gain back her standing in the community and have some kind of life. Lord Foxton, Lucas Mandeville, is scarred by his time in war on the continent, but more damaged is his sense of honor after his escape from a French prison. He admires Kendra’s determination to face her problems head-on and offers her his assistance. Finding comfort and encouragement in each other, the couple discover that maintaining propriety while fighting the inextricable pull between them becomes as difficult a battle as restoring Kendra’s good name and finding her son.
VERDICT In her own signature style, paying impeccable attention to period details, Putney continues to vindicate the honor of scoundrels in this fifth entry of the stunning “Rogues Redeemed” series (after Once a Spy). Fans of historicals will root for our brave, intelligent heroine and the hero who stands beside her.
