To write this post, I did a little GoodReads research to find out if I had reviewed the three books in this series yet. I'm a little disappointed in myself, if I'm honest.
All good things must come to an end, and it's with a heavy but joyful heart that we're sharing with you the final Rogue cover today.
Two disclosures before I start this review:
1) I'm not sure I'm able to be objective about it since my response is so strongly emotional
2) There's a bit of a spoiler in the second paragraph but not really a spoiler? You'll see.
Today we are thrilled to share a beautiful cover with you - the second historical romance from Felicia Grossman. If you've been following us for a while, you'll recall that Margrethe adored the first book in this series, Appetites & Vices.
Read on to hear what we thought of Hired, Salute to the Stud, and Lucky Creek Lady. That's 1 m/f contemporary, 1 m/m contemporary, and 1 m/f historical!
If you've read reviews on our site before, you'll note that we include a bunch of information with each review. This includes tropes (enemies-to-lovers), tags (Regency), and a "heat" rating. In the body of each review, we do our best to include content warnings as well. We are not alone in this, but it's also far from a universal practice.
Since there's been a lot of discussion about content warnings in the romance community lately, here's the Love in Panels approach. What content warnings are, what they are not, how they benefit readers (and authors), and how we use them. I've also included notes on other approaches used by reviewers/readers where appropriate.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though. First, let's talk about the book! Then we'll show you the cover, and THEN an exclusive excerpt!
If you combine Reisz's signature mindf*ckery, panty-melting erotic scenes, and banter with Greek mythology and the modern British peerage... you get The Rose.
