How To Tame a Wild Rogue

Avon. (Palace of Rogues, Bk. 6). Jul. 2023. 384p. ISBN 9780063280915. pap. $9.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
When privateer Lorcan St. Leger sees Lady Daphne Worth dangling out of a window on a rope she fashioned of bedsheets, he offers aid, and the two find themselves arm in arm as a storm that will shut down their part of London begins to break. They take refuge in the Grand Palace on the Thames, which series fans (the last was You Were Made To Be Mine) know is the boarding home of Delilah and Tristan and Lucien and Angelique. Lorcan has complicated history with both men, and Daphne and Delilah were somewhat spiky childhood acquaintances. Needing refuge but caught in a web of past relationships, Lorcan and Daphne pretend to be married. The delightful plot dances from there, but the strongest part of the reading experience is Long’s deft writing. She creates deep emotional attachments across characters, both romantically and companionably, and her dialogue simmers and sparkles. Reading the book is akin to sinking into a sofa in the boarding home and being welcomed to great company.
VERDICT Series readers will be delighted, and those yet to discover Long will have found a treasure, quickly seeking the full series run.
