My Thoughts:
Gideon’s comes off as an uncaring rogue at first, but as the story reveals he’s anything but. His past broke my heart!  He’s longed for Messilina, watching her from afar, wanting her out of the clutches of her villainous uncle. He’s a horrid man! Don’t think we’ve seen the last of him, unfortunately.  Gideon takes on a Devil’s bargain to marry her.   

 I do love the forced marriage troupe. Messilina and Gideon are enemies-to-lovers because of it, well on Messilina’s side, anyhow, but oh!  When the lovers part begins it’s deliciously hot!

Other reasons to love this story: Lucretia’s and her sweet obsession! Cute little seven-year-old Sam. His relationship with Messillina and her puppy, a male dog named Daisy by the youngster!

I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Hoyt for quite some time, so I was thrilled when she came out with a new series. I enjoyed this installment even more than the first book, and I don’t think it’s necessary to read the books in order. When a Rogue Meets His Match works quite well as a standalone.

I’m hoping the next book centers on Elspeth, Freya’s younger sister and kind of clueless bookworm! Well, not clueless, just a little unaware of the world. I think it could be a lot of fun pairing her with someone like Julian Greycourt, he’s so jaded. 

I alternately listened and read an e-copy. Ashford McNab did a fabulous job with the narration, both male and female voices. I listened at 1.5x.

4.5 Stars


  1. Gideon sounds wonderful to be thought awful just to get Messalina away from a horrid uncle. The boy and dog are a cute touch. I haven't read Hoyt in years, but this sounds good.

  2. I haven't had a chance to pick up this series yet, but I have loved reading this author in the past. I really love those forced marriage type tropes in romance, it builds some great sexual tension.

    Great review Rachel!
