Review: The Rogue Steals a Bride - Amelia Grey

Matson Brentwood has finally met the woman of his dreams. The lovely, red-haired Sophia Hart heats his blood like no other lady. Her alluring countenance has stopped him dead in his tracks. But no matter how attracted he is to her, he can’t give into his desire to possess her in every way because she is the ward of the man he’s sworn to hate. 

Newly arrived in London, Miss Sophia Hart is in need of a husband, but not for herself. She has twin, spinster aunts and one of them has decided she wants a man. Sophia agrees to help her aunt by allowing older gentlemen to call on her and then make sure Auntie spends more time in the gentleman’s company than Sophia does. But when Sophia meets the darkly handsome and intriguing Mr. Matson Brentwood, she knows that for the first time, she in danger of losing her heart. 

But there’s more than just an adversarial guardian and a long list of beaus standing between Sophia and Matson. Sophia promised her dying father she would honor his lifelong plan for her as an heiress and marry a titled gentleman. Matson isn’t titled so she must deny her love for him and make up to her father for costing him the love of his life.

My thoughts:
Amelia Grey's books are always so cute and this one did not disappoint.

This book is the last in the Rogue series. The 3 first are loosely connected to these 3, and these 3 last are about three Brentwood brothers. Now it's Matson's turn. A rich young gentleman who comes to London and scandal breaks. He looks like someone else, ohhh his mum had an affair. To makes things more complicated he falls for a young woman, who is the ward of his father (the one he did not know about). Should we make it even more complicated? Yes why not. The lady in question, Sophia promised dear old dad to marry a man with a title. Alas poor Matson does not have one.

And this book is then about Sophia looking for a match, accompanied by her 2 aunts. And Matson finding every opportunity to be near her. Because you know they are gonna make it somehow, but the road there is long.

I did wonder one thing at the end, what about Lord Snellingly? Lol, you who have read it will understand. I want him to find someone.

Conclusion:
A sweet romance.
