The Virgin and the Rogue

Avon. (Rogue Files, Bk. 6). May 2020. 368p. ISBN 9780062885449. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Charlotte Langley has always considered herself the most timid and boring of her three sisters. Then one night, just weeks before marrying her dull childhood friend, she accidentally drinks a tonic that causes her to become uncontrollably aroused. Whilst under the influence, she accosts Kingston, her brother-in-law’s roguish stepbrother, and does unspeakable things to him (not that he minds). The next morning she’s horrified, while Kingston is intrigued, realizing she’s not the stuffy miss he originally assumed she was. Charlotte is convinced that her attraction to Kingston is purely the effect of the tonic, but her insistence on the matter only convinces Kingston that there’s a genuine attraction between them. In time, Charlotte begins questioning her motives for marrying her humdrum fiancé, and begins to see herself as a woman of passion.
VERDICT A light and enjoyable comedy of errors from best-selling Jordan (The Duke’s Stolen Bride); this reads like a sexier version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
