A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolutionbut first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plansand her heart. Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of Londons major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis and Londons undisputed lord of sin, Lord Ballentine' Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous pricea night in her bed. Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smoldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare. As Lucie tries to out-maneuver Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers theres truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war.

I loved the first book, Bringing Down the Duke but found it difficult to get into A Rogue of One’s Own. The storyline didn’t seem clear and the two characters weren’t on the same page. Felt rushed towards the end too.

What a hoot this one was. Lucy was brilliant as the suffragette and Tristan as the old friend. I do enjoy the enemies to lovers trope and this one was very well done. This is a great series.

Book 2 in the A League of Extraordinary Women series is the love story of Lady Lucy (the Tewbury Termagant) and Lord Ballentine (soldier, poet, and seducer). Fireworks start when Ballentine buys the majority shares in the publishing house that Lucy is planning to use to further her suffragette work. Both characters find many ways to scandalize polite society and often cross paths while doing so. When Lucy's needs and wants collide with Ballentine's, "war is declared". Dunmore's writing style deftly mixes historical research and traditional romance in a stylish writing style. The author brings the Victorian era alive in a way that feels fresh and real. No sepia-toned photographs of a dour Queen Victoria grace this story.

A light, historical romance with good character development and witty banter. A great book for the beginner romance reader.

Lucie is an awesome character! I loved this book, and it's pretty heavy on historical notes.

Sizzling enemies-to-lovers follow-up to Bringing Down the Duke. While I would have liked a bit more steam and more of the supportive friendship that made the first book satisfying, the two strong-willed leads in this were more than enough to keep me glued to the pages and rooting for them.
