Never Rescue a Rogue by Virginia Heath Book Review

When Minerva Merriwell married Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, the three Merriwell sisters not only left behind the poverty of Clerknwell for Mayfair, but they also found a new family that, unfortunately for the middle sister, Diana, includes Hugh’s best friend, Giles Sinclair whose quarrels and easy banters hooked me up for hours. Having been raised in poverty by a father who was ready to use her to pay his debts, Diana, despite her improved circumstances, is determined to earn her own money and she values her freedom and independence too much to ever consider getting married. She works for the popular newspaper Tribune where her family thinks she simply nitpicks grammar.

The truth is far more complicated. Not only Diana writes the gossip column that reveals all the dark secrets of the ton, but she is also the Sentinel, the investigative journalist who’s been bringing to light the evil schemes of those in power. The only person who knows the truth about her job is none other than Giles, the future Duke of Harpenden. Giles and Diana don’t get along, but they can deny the attraction between them. And when the Dirty Secret Giles’s family has been hiding for years risks to come to light and ruin his life, he asks for help from Diana, his Goddess of the Hunt and Hornet-Kicking Hunter of the Truth.

Having read and enjoyed the first book in the Merriwell Sisters series, Never Fall For Your Fiancée, I was already familiar with the characters of Diana and Giles and I was really looking forward to reading their story since, already in the first book, the chemistry between these two characters was high and their bickering and witty banter was highly entertaining. Now, they have taken things up a notch having formed some kind of friendship that has turned into strong attraction that they find very difficult to deny as they spend more and more time together.

I loved the characters of Diana and Giles. They share a complicated relationship with their own fathers and a strong desire for independence. They have a slow-burn enemies-to-friends-to-lovers kind of romance made more entertaining by two fantastic supporting characters: Giles’s valet, Dalton, who doesn’t mind speaking his own mind, and Diana’s younger sister Vee, who tries – and fails – to act as a chaperone and protect her sister’s virtue during an impromptu trip to Giles’s country estate.

Never Rescue a Rogue is a must read. Full of romance, mystery, and secrets, it is exciting, sexy, and funny, my favorite so far in the series, but who knows what will happen when the third Merriwell sister is the protagonist of her own story? I can’t wait to find out!
