The spy who sought refuge... When injured spy Sir Roger Danby comes asking for shelter at her inn, Lucy Carew is wary. He may be strikingly handsome, but the disgraced single mother has learnt the hard way with men like him. Against her better judgement, she gives him refuge. Sir Roger has never been at the mercy of a woman before, and he's never met one as mysterious and bewitching as Lucy. He hasn't come looking for redemption, but Lucy is a woman who could reach in and touch his closely guarded heart...

Review Text

  • By Maureen Mary on November 13, 2017

    I already read the first in the series liked it very much. Just finished this one and it was well written. I suppose this technically is a clean book - how I hate that word - to describe the absence of sexual depiction in a book. Since most authors in romance novels are describing the love between the two main characters either in marriage or with the expectation or desire for marriage, why is that not clean?When I peruse reviews "clean" is my ticket to exit with no sale.This is a moral book. Choices made by the characters for better or worse are revealed and examined and the moral path is the preferred route. There is sin and redemption.As for the content the opening has the hero in bed with some maid and his friend spending the night in the bed of his host's daughter. The female lead has a son with that same local lord concieved apparently up against tbe brewery wall.He casts her out of his employment. She knew he was married by the way. Subsequently, for lack of money she trades sexual favors for medicine and to pay bills.The hero has slept with too many wonen to count and other things he has done are worse.So, sensuality in more forms than I can count is the fabric of the novel - referred to, explained, alluded to, etc. bur it is clean because when true love, forgiveness, marriage and the realization of what is really important comes about - consumation of that love never happens in the text.I am rather disappointed.And despite the "clean" appellation, the content of this book will engender a lot of questions from younger readers that I would be loathe to explain.I recommend both books - I miss the lovemaking - the physical manifestation of the spiritual connection between two people in love. Considering all the sex referenced here, I think a little passionate lovemaking would have made it clean indeed.

    I just got off the phone with my Mum, where I couldn't resist chatting to her about this book. I am currently introducing her to all of the ladies of The Unlaced Book Club and it's making me so happy. I know she has her own TBR pile to get through but I love it when we can share books, especially when she loves them as much as I do. Redeeming the Rogue Knight is definitely going on her list.When Elisabeth Hobbes got in touch with me about reading her next book, out on 1st September, I couldn't say no. I am working my way through the work of all the wonderful ladies in The Unlaced Book Club and this was the first book of Elisabeth's that I had the pleasure of reading. I started it on our family cruise and then spent the day we got home lying on my couch, in between loads of laundry, completely immersed in the world of Sir Roger Danby and Lucy Carew. I simply could not put it down.Sir Roger Danby is on a mission to deliver a message from King Edward. Accompanying him is Thomas Carew. When Thomas gets them both in a spot of bother, they have to flee the house they are staying at and Roger finds himself with an arrow through his shoulder and on the doorstep of Thomas's sister, Lucy's, inn. Lucy hasn't seen her brother for four years so when he turns up unannounced at her door, with a complete stranger, she's shocked and scared. Even more so when the stranger kisses her like she's never been kissed before. Lucy can't deny the stranger is quite attractive but he is also rude and aggressive. She doesn't want him in her home for long, especially with her two year old son to keep safe. When trouble comes searching for Roger and Thomas, Thomas ends up causing a distraction and disappearing, which leaves Lucy to remove the arrow from Roger's shoulder on her own and to look after him while he heals. They may not get off to a very good start and even though Roger is just like the men Lucy despises, there is something about him that she can't help but be drawn to. Can Roger redeem himself? It's not something Roger expects to feel, he's not used to opening up and is quite content with living his life the way he always has, but meeting Lucy changes something and he finds himself wanting to make amends and do things differently.I have to admit that for the first couple of chapters, I wasn't drawn to Roger very much. His snappy temper and treatment towards women left a lot to be desired. However, I'm happy to say that he most definitely redeemed himself and I found myself falling in love with him. I ended up really enjoying this element to the story and the way Elisabeth wrote Roger's character. It made me feel closer to Lucy and like I was discovering who Robert was at the same time she was. I rather liked that he had to work extra hard to win me over, it seemed more realistic than him being this wonderful person straight off the bat. Once I warmed to him, Roger was incredibly lovable and yes, definitely swoon worthy. By the end of the book, I was grinning from ear to ear and just wanted to hug him.Where do I even begin with Lucy? She was truly remarkable. She was brave, smart, kind, feisty and so much more. I was so impressed by the way she stood up for herself and also by her fierce love for her son. It broke my heart that she felt she had to go to certain lengths to put food on the table and that she had been hurt so badly, her strength through it all showed no bounds. Her interactions with Roger were filled with emotion and I felt every word she spoke. I very much doubt you will be able to read this story and not feel the need to rally behind Lucy and witness her getting her happily ever after.From cover to cover, Redeeming the Rogue Knight was a thrilling ride, full of motherhood, bravery, strength, will and love. It was emotional, funny and addictive. I would happily read the story again. I do actually have to go back and read the first book in The Danby Brothers series though, this one was the second.You should definitely pick up Redeeming the Rogue Knight today!

    Redeeming The Rogue Knight is a medieval historical romance. Roger Danby and Thomas Carew have been earning a living as mercenary fighters in France. They are currently in Cheshire delivering a message from the King, who requests more troops for the war.Roger and Thomas are forced to make a hasty departure from the house of Lord Harper due to an indiscretion with the Lord’s daughter. Injured by an arrow, Thomas takes Roger to safety at his family inn. Since Thomas has been away, his father has died leaving his sister and her young son alone to run the ale house.With men still after the pair, and Roger unable to travel further, Thomas takes off to lead the pursuers away. He leaves his sister to tend Roger. Fearful of Roger, his wound and the trailing men, Lucy is reluctant to put herself and her son in any danger. She agrees to treat Roger, but shows her disapproval of his manners and his life, whilst hiding her attraction to the rogue. Roger needs Lucy to care for him while he recovers, he finds his usual charm rebuffed and in time is humbled by Lucy’s life. Forced to spend time with Lucy and her son, Roger begins to open his eyes to his past life and ask himself questions about his future.This is an enjoyable rags to riches romance following a popular story arc and I would recommend this to readers who like clean historical romance.
