Review: The Rogue's Proposal By Jennifer Haymore

See More:
Lord Lukas Hawkins, the rakish second son of the House of Trent, has never found a wager he couldn't win or a woman he couldn't seduce—until his search for his missing mother leads him to a mysterious encounter with a beautiful stranger.

Luke's mother has been missing for months, and while his honorable older brother Simon, Duke of Trent, leads the official investigation from London, Luke sets out on a somewhat seedier path. Sources have told him his mother was last seen with a scoundrel named Roger Morton, but their association isn't clear. Was she kidnapped or did she go willingly?

While searching for Morton, Luke meets Emma Anderson, a secretive beauty with her own reasons for hunting Morton. At first Luke laughs at the idea of allowing a woman to join him in his search, but soon Emma's insights into Morton—like the woman herself—prove impossible to resist.

The Rogue’s Proposal is the first novel I have read by Jennifer Hayworth, so I did not know what to expect. I can be picky with historical romances – they can so easily become too heavy on the history while not focusing enough on the romance or vice versa.
  In this story neither happened, as, from the outset, this is primarily a character driven novel. Sure, they’re looking for the man who kidnapped and murdered a loved one respectively, but the journey is more about Luke and Emma’s emotional change rather than the changing surroundings.
  As you can guess from the title, Luke is a rogue. A major player; the guy women want to be with and men want to be. Personally, Luke does not appeal to me as a love interest. He’s the ultimate bad boy, but bad boys aren’t my type. Luckily, they are Emma’s type, and although she tries to avoid it, he’s exactly what she wants.
 Emma is a strong character, a woman who will do whatever she has to do, no matter the cost. She is honourable, strong and naive yet innocent. She’s the perfect foil for Luke.
  The sexual tension is palpable, and the love scenes graphic. And there are a lot of them. If you’re looking for a romance that’s more about talking and less about sex, this book is not for you. However, if you like really bad bad boys, lots of angst and imaginative loving, then this is for you.
 All together I give it about 3 out of 5 stars.
