I liked Sam and Juliette's relationship, just not in the time era that it was set. I like their dialogue and the relationship between Juliette and her sisters is really sweet. When you think about it, the story itself is rather silly: bad man wants to evict family to sell the house, sends good man to do so. Good man is having trouble evicting family so decides to give them some time. Family is sure that they own the house, they just can't find the papers. Until they do, at the very last second. The end. But it does make for an entire romance book and I never felt like passages were dragging along. The tempo was there because of all the dialogue and internal discourse of both...

I received with thanks an ARC copy of The Rogue is Back in Town from St. Martin's Press & Netgalley. 

This is my true and honest review of The Rogue is Back in Town. This was released for publication on 2nd January 2018.

This is the final instalment of the Wayward Wallflowers books. This novel was had everything I could want from historical romance, Love, Intrigue, Sass and a Hot Romance. Also had a bad boy main character which I have a soft spot for and a smart female lead. If you love historical romance, then defiantly read this book and series.

I enjoyed this story. This is an author I have just started reading and I would read another book from her. I thought this story had promise and I liked the characters.

Samuel Travis has historically been a self-confirmed rogue, but he is now determined to prove himself worthy and turn himself around and start accomplishing something. Juliette (Julie) Lacey is the youngest of three sisters (hence she is featured in the third book in the series) and is the most adventurous of her three sisters. Even though she's the most daring though, I found it hard to believe that someone with her strong personality would even give thought to Nigel's proposal (I won't say what it was but it was shitty). I would've kicked him right in the nuts and told him to go F off. And the thing that disturbed me the most really was the lack of closure regarding...

This is captivating, dramatic, amusing and romantic. Sam is cocky, determined, sweet and irresistible. Julie is naive, stubborn, dedicated and caring. Sam roars into Julie's life at the behest of his brother, Sam needs to prove he's useful by evicting her and her uncle. But she insists that he can't, that his brother doesn't own their home. Battle lines are drawn and the war if Wilson begins. Only Sam starts to have feelings Julie, and starts thinking that his brother is in the wrong, so he decides he is going to help her. She doesn't make it easy though. She can't decide if she likes him or his brother. The love triangle gets more intense as the days go by...

As time goes on Sam and Juilette can't help but grow more attracted to one a other. 

This was a great read and I enjoyed it very much.  I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

Now, Julie was definitely not my favourite kind of heroine. Indeed, I would say that she often seems quite capricious, sometimes naive and also unselessly virtous (I mean in general, not in the love story).
Moreover, the reason why I could not really love the story is that I honestly could not appreciate the romantic plot, and its developments, between the protagonists. In fact, I have unfortunately been pretty untouched by it.

Even more, I enjoyed the previous novels well enough, but where the heck were the heroine's sisters in all this mess??? I am pretty sure that it would have been noticeable, at least to such emotionally close family members, if a problematic economic situation...

I received a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is the final instalment of the Wayward Wallflowers series. It can be read as a stand-alone. This book focuses on the youngest Lacey sister, Juliette. Juliette spends her time looking after her eccentric uncle now that her two sisters are married. Her uncle hopes Juliette will marry but Juliette is ashamed that she was duped by a handsome Marquess into a scandalous kiss.

Samuel Travis is an unrepentant rake. Recently returned from the continent Sam is back to his old escapades. After one eventful night, his brother has had enough. Sam is given one task to get back into his brother’s good...

Disclaimer: Much of the plot line of The Rogue is Back in Town, book three in the Wayward Wallflower series by Anna Bennett, ignores the societal rules and mores of the Regency Era. If you can suspend your sense of logic and accept the characters' actions, no matter how ridiculous, then you'll enjoy the author's breezy style. If you're a stickler for accuracy, skip this series.

The little bit we've seen of Juliette Lacey in the first two books of the series has shown us a spoiled little sister allowed to blurt out inappropriate comments including references to sexual activities. Due to her unrestrained behavior, it shouldn't be surprising that the youngest...

As much as they bicker, Sam and Juliette can't help but become more and more attracted to each other. The problem is...

Charming! ____ 3.5 stars

A young woman moonlight kiss in the garden during a ball is just the beginning. Contrary to Miss Juliette Lacey's expectations, the erstwhile respectable Duke Nigel (the worm!) does not come a wooing. Instead he sends his rogue of a brother, Lord Samuel Travis, to evict her and her uncle from their home. The relationship between Nigel and Sam is really a key to Sam's behaviour.
Entranced by Juliette, the rogue in Sam finds himself wanting Juliette, but the suppressed Sam wants a chance to change his path. There are some deliciously wicked moments and some humorous ones. Uncle Alistair is a wonderful character. He won my heart with his platypus exchange...

I really liked the first two books in this series.  Things happened too fast in this book.....the romancing, the bedding.....unbelievable.  Pacing of the book was off and it made for distracting read.

This is the final installment of the Wayward Wallflowers series. However, it can definitely be read as a stand alone historical romance. Julie is the youngest and the only one of the sisters not yet married. But she is content taking care of her eccentric uncle. Or at least she is until, Samuel comes to evict them from her childhood home. Now she wants not only to keep her home, protect her uncle, and maybe keep Sam, the infamous rogue for herself as well. This was an enjoyable romance that shows that people are not always as they appear to be. When in fact, the rogue might be more of a gentleman than the man trying to pass himself off as a gentleman. I only wished that the...
