Hello maidens, Francesca here. Suzanne and I were talking last week about who we should put in our dance cards for our special post coming up later this month with our favorite historical book boyfriends. And counting on the fact that we only get a few each, you know they have to be awesome! But the funny thing was that we each had a Rohan man in our lists! The HOUSE OF ROHAN series by Anne Stuart is a dark and gritty historical like no other I’ve read before. They’re sexy at the core but they’re not the fluffy fairytales about balls and seasons we are used to reading in historical romance. If you haven’t read them yet, you better get on it! And if Ms. Stuart or her publisher happen to be reading this…WE NEED MORE BOOKS IN THIS SERIES! We are having withdrawals!! Get them and you’ll see 😉
THE WICKED HOUSE OF ROHAN
The House of Rohan Prequel #0.5
A fallen woman. A most wicked plan for redemption.
Desperate, starving, Kathleen Strong makes her way to a job interview that promises a chance at proper employment…and maybe a bite to eat. Accused of “gross immorality,” she’s adrift after being dismissed from her governess position, despite being entirely innocent.
That innocence is precisely what a mysterious group of debauched aristocrats finds so alluring about Miss Strong. When they propose a scandalous offer that she can’t refuse…she can’t refuse. But if the darkly gallant Alistair Rohan, a gentleman involved in all manner of wicked deeds himself, has anything to say about it, Kathleen can escape her disrepute in another way.
Of course, the escape route looks very similar to the group’s illicit proposition itself…

The House of Rohan #4
A long string of tragic loves haunts Viscount Benedick Francis Alistair Rohan. Cool and cynical, he’s weary of life’s fickle games and wants a prim and proper wife he can ignore while indulging his sensual appetites.
Lady Melisande Carstairs is nothing less than a tornado storming into Benedick’s measured life. Possessed of boundless energy and the soul of a reformer, Melisande always conquers, whether it’s saving the souls of soiled doves or seducing the man she’s inconveniently fallen for. When she informs Benedick that his brother’s newly revived Heavenly Host has graduated from simple carnal debauchery to sadistic violence, he’s compelled to investigate, undercover. Under those covers, however, is Melisande herself, playing a dangerous game in the name of justice.
And the Heavenly Host has just seen her hand, and more.
