MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
The Rogue’s Conquest
by Lily Maxton
Entangled Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: September 25, 2017
I Recommend This Book
Wallflower Eleanor Townsend is not like most women. She has no interest in marriage, the ton, or fashion. Instead, her heart lies with science. And when the opportunity to present a paper arises, she takes it, even though it means dressing as a man. But her disguise doesn’t quite work. Someone notices—and the brute intends to blackmail her.
Former prizefighter James MacGregor wants to be a gentleman, like the men he trains in his boxing saloon. His first step is gaining a beautiful, wealthy wife. Eleanor Townsend is not that woman, but a chance encounter gives him the leverage he needs. She’ll gain him entry to high society and help him with his atrocious manners, and in return, he won’t reveal her secret. It’s the perfect arrangement. At least until the sparks between them become more than just their personalities clashing. But there’s too much at stake for James to give in to his growing attraction.
If Eleanor could only be accepted by her scientific counterparts as what she is, an intelligent inquisitive woman. But no, society believes only a man holds such interests as bugs and their mating habits. Women are too delicate to cultivate such interests or so the scientific community of men believes.
Eleanor has written her detailed observations under a male pseudonym so when she is invited to present her observations to the local scientific community she decides to carry the mascaraed one step further by dressing as a man.
She is certain that she has been successful in her endeavor until James, a social climbing ex prizefighter let’s her know in no uncertain terms that she has failed to fool him. He decides he needs her help in obtaining a certain woman of higher social standing as his wife.
What starts out as a comical romp progressed quickly into a convoluted tale culminating into a most unusual love story.
I gave this book 4..25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy in this story was late in this stories development but very heated being closer to hot than warm.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Elise Pepper has landed her dream job at the Capture The Magic book store. Peace and quiet and thousands of books to herself – including a $2m first edition of Alice in Wonderland. What more could she ask for?
It can’t last of course. Her blissful solitude is rudely interrupted when someone turns the second floor of the building into a Down the Rabbit Hole-themed escape room.
But the noise is the least of her worries – what’s worse is the dead bank executive upstairs and the missing first edition. Now Elise is suspected of both theft and murder, even as the killer taunts her with Alice in Wonderland clues. Can she find out who did it before she takes the fall for the crime?
