Review: The Rogue's Proposal by Jennifer Haymore

The Rogue's Proposal (House of Trent #2) by Jennifer Haymore

Description:
Lord Lukas Hawkins, the rakish second son of the House of Trent, has never found a wager he couldn't win or a woman he couldn't seduce—until his search for his missing mother leads him to a mysterious encounter with a beautiful stranger.

Luke's mother has been missing for months, and while his honorable older brother Simon, Duke of Trent, leads the official investigation from London, Luke sets out on a somewhat seedier path. Sources have told him his mother was last seen with a scoundrel named Roger Morton, but their association isn't clear. Was she kidnapped or did she go willingly?

While searching for Morton, Luke meets Emma Anderson, a secretive beauty with her own reasons for hunting Morton. At first Luke laughs at the idea of allowing a woman to join him in his search, but soon Emma's insights into Morton—like the woman herself—prove impossible to resist.


My Thoughts:
I adored this book. I needed a good HEA after a couple of books with unresolved endings. I was not disappointed. Emma is a widow looking for her husband's murderer and the man responsible for stealing her father's fortune. Luke is looking for his missing mother. They team up because they are looking for the same man. Emma is strong and independent. Luke is the tortured bad boy with a soft spot for his woman. They just compliment each other so well and help each other heal. A sweet, yet super steamy story. If you love steamy historical romances, check it out.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!!
