When a Rogue Meets His Match by Elizabeth Hoyt

Forever, 2020


A classically wonderful, big drama, high-stakes historical romance. I read this in one day and was completely absorbed. I’m a sucker for a hero who rises from the streets of London and has the literal battle scars to prove it. *fans self*

Gideon Hawthorne is all but done working for the Duke of Windemere as his fixer. Until the duke makes him an offer he can’t turn down. One last job and he can have HER. Marry HER. The very woman who has captivated Gideon since he met her, the duke’s niece, Messalina Greycourt.

Ohh, what could possibly go wrong (perfectly right!) here?

If you love big drama and big romance feelings, you definitely want to read this one. Elizabeth Hoyt does this soooooo gloriously.

Oh. Also. This book has a section that caught me off guard and had me sobbing. I should have expected it because the breadcrumbs were perfectly laid but somehow my brain didn’t latch on and oooooof. Tears. In no way does this book shy away from the tragic conditions and forced choices of London’s poor.

Thank you Forever and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy.  I voluntarily read and reviewed this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
