A Rogue of One's Own (A League of Extraordinary Women #2) by Evie Dunmore

A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution—but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans…and her heart.

Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis and London’s undisputed lord of sin, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.

Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.

As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war…

4 out of 5 stars

A Rogue of One’s Own was a wonderful and witty story! It was poignant and real with exceptional characters full of depth. I loved the emotion, drama, and the animosity between Lucie and Tristan. It was an exciting and fresh read!

The author has an excellent way of telling a story. There were great building details that completely pulled me in. I liked the foreshadowing happening as we learn about the characters, their histories, and what they're going through. I loved all the details about Tristan and Lucie and this tense history they have filled with animosity. I liked that verbal sparring and the underlying attraction between them. I felt for both of them and what they were going through. Tristan was a man of many secrets and talents and I loved discovering those. Lucie was a force of nature, fighting for change in a time where everything was against her. I enjoyed them coming together and that fight between them. I really enjoyed their moments of understanding and when they start to soften and feelings start to emerge. 

There's a nice cast of characters involved. I really liked the relationship that the women have together. I also liked the introduction of Blacksmith and where all that could go, he seems incredibly intriguing. There were several important and relevant subjects that were touched upon and I felt they added a lot to the story.

This was a well thought out, entertaining, and engrossing story. I found it exciting to read and I liked the personal conflicts Tristan and Lucie were facing and the ups and downs they had to go through to get to their HEA. I look forward to more in the series. Great read!
