Putney’s endearing characters and warm-hearted stories never fail to inspire and delight.” –Sabrina Jeffries

Rogues Redeemed


As heir to a title and great wealth, Will Masterson should have stayed home and tended his responsibilities. Instead he went to war. Now, after perilous years fighting the French, he intends his current mission to be his last. But all his plans are forgotten when he arrives in the small mountain stronghold of San Gabriel and meets her.

Knowing herself to be too tall, strong, and unconventional to appeal to a man, Athena Markham has always gloried in her independence. But for the first time in her life, she finds a man who might be her match.

Two of a kind, too brave for their own good, Athena and Will vow to do whatever it takes to vanquish San Gabriel’s enemies. For neither will back down from death, and only together can they find happiness and a love deeper than any they’d dared imagine. . .

My Thoughts:
This first book in a new series by Award Winning Author Mary Jo Putney may be a sleeper. It has the potential of being great, but just doesn’t clear the bar from being really good to great. I have read this author in the past, so her works are not new to me. I would have preferred this book to be more fast paced. I had no problem putting it down and coming back to it later. I didn’t actually get the ARC until after the publication date so I didn’t take a long time to finish it but longer than I would have liked.
I thought the characters were endearing. It is a book with multiple storylines in that more than one couple falls in love and ends up marrying so that it ends up being a story within a story. Athena and Will are the main hero and heroine and you’re never too certain they will end up together.
I hope subsequent books in the series will live up to the standards I have come to expect from this author.
I gave this book a 3.75 star rating.

I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
