Lady Anne is shocked when Captain Lord Hartley Corry—her former fiancé who left for India after her father forbade their marriage—returns to England and acts as if everything is all water under the bridge. He never fought for her hand or eloped with her as he promised and he thinks she'd still be willing to marry him? Not a chance.
Hartley is equally shocked to literally run into his past love upon arriving at his brother's house. Though he yearns to take advantage of this second chance to woo his beloved, he can hardly admit that he is secretly a spy—at least not until he can be sure he trusts her. But convincing Lady Anne to let him prove his sincerity by courting her respectably all over again might be his undoing. Because all he wants is to show her how much of a rogue he can be when the right woman is in his arms…

THE RISK OF ROGUES is an enjoyable read and a great addition to the series. Rarely do I read about a Regency heroine so concerned with her intended's occupation, as it would definitely affect her future children's ability to survive in the world. In that I do find Anne quite practical and levelheaded, perhaps because she's a little bit older than most heroines in Regency tales, and thus she's able to use her head even while the hero's seducing her.
Hart is a typical Regency hero, though I wish he had exercised more care and thought to Anne's first time. I also didn't like that he thought to entrap Anne into marriage (definitely a first for a hero, and while with good intentions, I still didn't like it), but thank goodness Anne wouldn't be swayed until he had satisfied her questions. Two thumbs up for a strong heroine.
Overall though, I had an enjoyable hour or two reading this novella.
