    1 thought on “As Rich as a Rogue”

    1. Audiobook review. Sometimes book titles make no darn sense. Especially when it ends up having nothing to do with the story. The "rogue" who is not really a rogue is actually a lot of bit broke. Title issue aside, I actually quite enjoyed this read for the most part. The heroine, Mari, was a woman out of her time. Forward thinking, smart, supportive, and kind. She and our hero, Peter, clash at a ball and that event changes both of them in an irreversible way. 6 years later, Peter returns with new [...]

    2. A lot of fun + that marriage proposal was 100%.I'm a big fan of plots where either the heroine or hero was publicly ruined by one another. Considering that, I was excited going into As Rich as a Rogue. I loved how their reconciliation played out, and as always, things weren't as they seemed. Mari's development was great. I've been looking for a heroine like her for awhile. I loved that she was looking to make her future husband into someone important but instead made herself into something impor [...]

    3. Six years ago during her first season, Mari Powel was deemed the Wayward Welsh by Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly. The moniker has prevented her from finding a suitable husband, so suffice it to say that she does not have amiable feelings toward Lord Whitly. Good thing he left the country.Mari comes from a wealthy, but untitled, Welsh family. As nouveau riche and a father who works, her family is seen as somewhat gauche among the ton. Trying to overcome the Wayward Welsh moniker, for six long years M [...]

    4. 4.5 stars I really enjoyed this book - much more than the previous two. For six long years, Mari has hated Peter, Lord Whitly. He labeled her at the wayward welsh. For the past six years Mari has worked hard to be a "proper lady". Shortly after they meet, Peter leaves for India. Mari wants nothing more than to marry and start her own family - but she believes that being the "wayward welsh" has left her unmarried and she blames Peter for that. Now Peter is back and he wants Mari. Mari and Peter e [...]

    5. As Rich as A Rogue is the third book in the 'Rakes and Rogues' series by Jade Lee. The book can easily be read as a stand alone one, but I am sure after reading this one, you will want to go back and read the others if you haven't already.This is the story of Mari Powel and Peter Norwod, Lord Whitly. Mari is a proud Welsh woman who has always had a strong idea of the kind of man she wanted to marry. Her family is wealthy, and she stands to have an excellent dowry. So the first thing on her list [...]

    6. Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfOh, what a delicious time a wager over a parakeet will get Mari and Peter into. For six long years Mari has been hiding her natural self behind dull, drab clothing, an unflattering hair style and a difficult to maintain at times quiet, biddable personality transplant. All to work her way back into the good graces of the ton. Without a titled family, and only her family riches to back her, Mari’s choices for a suitable marriage were quite damaged by one annoying man [...]

    7. ARC REVIEW Rakes & Rogues book three. If you missed the first two that’s okay it is perfect as a standalone. Jade Lee brings a horrible situation and remedies it hilariously. At the very beginning you want to hate Peter Norwood, Mari Powell was given a horrible nickname by someone she once liked, but once she overheard him saying bad things about her and her sister she vowed never to forgive him. Mari lived the last six years trying to overcome the name The Wayward Welsh. I wasn’t inclin [...]

    8. This book is the second by Jade Lee that I have read and at the moment my favorite of hers. The story was such a fun historical romance and I couldn't get enough of it for a multitude of reasons, the first being how much I loved the characters. Strong heroines in historical romance are pretty much my favorite thing ever and Mari fit the bill perfectly with the way that she went up against Peter. As for Peter it was pretty impossible for me to not like him. Heroes like him in historical romance n [...]

    9. This was really such a sweet story, with some pretty hot scenes. Regency romance lovers will - wait for it - love it.The novel follows Mari and Peter. Peter, a bit of a rake, insulted Mari six years ago, giving her a bit of reputation. Then he ran off to I do a, where he made something of himself. Now, ready to come back and re-enter English society - and claim Mari as his own.I loved these characters. They seemed real - very believable and like-able. And the love scenes were, um, really good. V [...]

    10. One wrong word or a made up tidbit of gossip can ruin a young lady's season and the rest of her life. That is what happens to Mari Powel at her first ball after her come out. She is labeled the Wayward Welsh by Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly. For the next six years she hid her true self behind a facade of a boring, proper lady.She wants to get married and prove that she can be an asset to her husband. After over 5 years in India, Peter is back in England. He went to India to prove he is not a useles [...]

    11. I love this book! The main characters, Peter and Mari, both have enough faults to be realistic, and the story line has enough twists and turns to keep a reader interested. I wanted to tell Peter to express himself more, and Mari to stop overthinking and analyzing everything. There is a strong sense of period portrayed, with the less attractive parts of London honestly described, as well as some of the dangers. If you enjoy Regency romance, this is the book for you! I received a copy of this book [...]

    12. I received this from Netgalley/ Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is book 3 in a series. I had not read the other two but I was able to follow along quite well. I just did not enjoy it. The story was hard to fall in love with. Peter was just a jerk for much of the book and Mari was kind of ridiculous sometimes. It was just an okay read for me.

    13. Good main characters and some interesting secondary ones too. Mari's father didn't have a huge part but when he showed up he made things interesting. As did Lady Elanor as stuffy and socially correct as she was. She was so bland as to be almost invisible. She has been hired to help Mari find a husband worthy of her. No fortune hunters for her. That was on the top of her list because yes, she was a list maker. Poor Mari is being torn between who she really is and trying to fit a mold of never doi [...]

    14. 3.5 stars. Well written and interesting romance. It was quite different and I enjoyed the parrot. Some intrigue in the poorer part of London's docks and I liked that the hero was the heir and pretty poor. Lots of steamy scenes. Some fun banter.

    15. A wonderfully written book - Mari and Peter are fire, and the whole thing kicks off with a wager over who can teach a bird a phrase first, so :)

    16. This book was lighthearted and hilarious. The hero is determined to marry the hero and she's just as determined to marry anyone else, as long as it's not him. There is a wager in the first few pages where the hero and heroine both have to try to teach a green parakeet to speak a new phrase. If he wins, he gets a kiss. If she wins, he has to apologize on bended knee, with flowers, for giving her the nickname The Wayward Welsh. In another scene he goes to see her father to ask for her hand and the [...]

    17. Another great addition to the series. Jade Lee definitely knows how to write sexy snokin scenes for her characters. It's Jade Lee after all!And my ultimate favorite scenes are the kisses. I can never get enough of the kiss scenes and I just have to say that Jade is a master at First Kisses. Gosh those kisses are magical and heart stoppingly breathtaking. It can definitely melt your panties. And to think she couldn't top anymore kiss scenes from her previous book! Anyways, moving on, both Mari an [...]

    18. Jade Lee’s As Rich as a Rogue was a very wonderful surprise to read. I thought it would be a typical historical romance novel. The plot did not seem very unique, but I happily discovered it held a few wonderful surprises that make this a very entertaining and delightful read.As Rich as a Rogue is the third book in Ms. Lee’s Rakes and Rogues series. I do not believe you need to read the prior works to enjoy this one. Our heroine Mari Powel has been fighting her perceived impulsive nature the [...]

    19. I have read several of Ms. Jade Lee’s regency romances and enjoyed them all this one is also no exception. Even though this is part of the rake and rogues number three in the series this book can stand alone with no problem. Ms. Lee has a very lovely way of writing that you can see the places quite easily, the story has numerous plots twists/turns that even as a reader you think the story is going to go one way and the fun three dimensional characters major/minor just sparkle with life making [...]

    20. Jade Lee’s RICH AS A ROGUE is Rich Indeed!fangswandsandfairydust/201 Audio CD provided by publisher for review. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted. Jade Lee has really, REALLY, hit her stride with this book. Okay, at first I was skeptical; the main male character, Peter, uses the word “Titties” at least three times. It feels juvenile — and that’s probably her point. When Peter first meets Mari he’s a childish rogue. When we meet [...]

    21. Review written: August 1, 2016Star Rating: ★★☆☆☆ Heat Rating: ☀☀☼☼☼ An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.I picked this book mostly on the strength of its description on Netgalley. It piqued my curiosity more than anything. Unfortunately, I did not find it particularly engaging. Mari hates Peter for giving her a nickname. Peter wants Mari and always has wanted her. It's a great concept. It just didn't execute.Neither M [...]

    22. Mari Powel is carrying Lady Illston’s parakeet through Hyde Park. The bird says some words and Lady Illston likes to show it off. Eligible young ladies are allowed to carry the bird during the fashionable hour.When Lord Peter Whitby happens by, Mari just wants to flee. It turns out he ruined her chances to find a husband some years ago. He has been living and working in India for the last six years. He had called her the Wayward Welsh and her sister the Wild Welsh. When she reminds him of his [...]

    23. DELIGHTFULLY FUN AND ENTERTAININGI was so swept up in this story. Mari and Peter have a bit of a history. When he returns to England after six years, Mari is frustrated that the cause of her social difficulties has landed right in front of her. He's just as irksome as ever. Then end up placing a wager: who can teach a parakeet to speak a new phrase. If she wins, he must apologize on his knees for "accidentally" giving her the title Wayward Welsh. If he wins, he will give her a chaste kiss. They [...]

    24. As Rich as a Rogue stared out on the slow side--it took a while for the reasons behind Mari's animosity toward Peter to be revealed, and until they were she came off as rather shrewish (not to mention unreasonably obsessed with being proper and sedate--ie boring as heck). Once we really get to know the two of them, though, and finally understand what their motivations have been for the past six years, I was tempted to slow down myself, just to be able to spend more time with them.Except I was dy [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.After six years in India, Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly, has returned to England, much to Mari Powel's dismay. At a party before his departure, a casual comment made to a friend was overheard and repeated throughout the ton, and Mari was branded "the Wayward Welsh." Mari has spent six long years perfecting her painfully correct behavior in an attempt to rehabilitate her image and snare a husband, and on Peter's fir [...]

    26. This book was so good! I absolutely fell in love with the characters. Mari is so strong-headed and good natured. I completely felt for her and yet still understood where she was coming from, even when she hated Lord Whitly. And Lord Whitly, what a beautiful man. He is so in love with Mari and yet he can't find the words (or actions, really) to explain it to her. Their dynamic was so wonderful, and I'm so glad they had a happy ending. I have read many historical romance novels, and sometimes I fe [...]

    27. This starts off seeming a pretty straight forward enemies to lovers story and yes it starts that way, but along the way we have some surprises and upsets that seem to be unresolvable. However in the hands of one of the masters of the romance genre, Ms Jade Lee, all is worked out and accomplished with apparent ease. I can’t recall how many of Ms Lee’s novels I have read but they are many and every single time I am enthralled with the story and this book is no different.We see Mari’s develop [...]

    28. It has taken six years for Mari Powel to recover from a comment Peter Norwood, Lord Whitly made at a ball. It earned her the nickname the Wayward Welsh and caused her social downfall. Peter left for India to make his fortune and now he is back. On his first day back, he encounters Mari in Hyde Park. They end up in a bet regarding Lady Illston's parakeet. Mari is devastated that she is going to loose everything she has accomplished in the past six years. And Peter will do anything to win Mari's h [...]
