The Irresistible Rogue by Valerie Bowman (Review)
In the story, we meet up with old characters and new. However, the story focuses a lot on the main characters, but there are few secondary characters that need to be mention. Here we go:
Daphne Swift: Our heroine. She's been in love with Captain Rafferty Cavendish forever. However, he sees her as a sister. *hangs head down* She has decided to move on to new guy Fitzwell. One problem, she's married to Rafe. Huh. Oh the plot thickens. Plus, she's a feisty young woman who likes adventure.
Captain Rafferty Cavendish (Rafe): Married to Daphne, because of situation. Secretly loves her, but doesn't believe he's good enough to be with her. He has some issues with the upper ton. Plus, he doesn't like Daphne latest pick for a future husband.
Fitzwell: Courting Daphne. He's only important for the first half of the story, and he disappears after a certain. He's just there to court Daphne and elevate his status, which he would have been able to if he stuck around.
Delilah: OH MY GOODNESS! She's HILARIOUS! Absolutely love this 12 year old cousin of Daphne's. She's feisty, fiery, and troublemaker in the making. She can barter with the best of them. She's precocious, and that's the best way to describe her. For a 12 year she does put some things in perspective. She's going to be a wild one once she makes her debut. It would be world lookout.
We also have Daphne's brother, his wife, and their friends that play a part in the story. They add a little here and there. The story focus on Daphne and Rafe finding justice for Daphne's brother's death. The others are supplementary, but they add to the fun mix.
The Irresistible Rogue entertained me as I watch Daphne and Rafe find their way back to one another. Yes, they both have issues. Rafe doesn't believe he's good enough for anything, and he tries to do everything on his own. Daphne is use to getting what she wants and in a way Rafe resents that. This is one of the sore points in the story. When they work together they are undefeatable. Their interaction is explosive. Overall, I absolutely loved The Irresistible Rogue, and definitely left me on a book high.
