The Guise of a Gentleman by Donna Hatch

Donna Hatch has authored another great Regency novel titled The Guise of a Gentlemen. It is number two in the Rogue Heart Series. The first book is The Stranger She Married featuring Cole Amesbury which I very much enjoyed reading and have previously given a review.

Each book is a stand-alone story, about a different brother of the Amesbury family, and the family members wander in and out of each other’s books. Jared Amesbury is the daring and impulsive hero of The Guise of a Gentleman.

Here is the back-of-the-book synopsis:

The widowed Elise is a perfect English lady living within the confines of society for the sake of her impressionable young son. Her quiet world is shattered when she meets the impulsive and scandalous Jared Amesbury. His roguish charm awakens her yearning for freedom and adventure. But his irrepressible grin and sea-green eyes hide a secret.

A gentleman by day, a pirate by night, Jared accepts one last assignment before he can be truly free. Elise gives him hope that he, too, can find love and belonging. His hopes are crushed when his best laid plans go awry and Elise is dragged into his world of violence and deceit. She may not survive the revelation of Jared’s past…or still love him when the truth is revealed.

The Guise of a Gentleman by Donna Hatch is available at Wild Rose Press, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
