Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend is small but smart, so when she
overhears a kidnapping plot, she thinks fast to protect her
pregnant twin sister. Sarah can't escape on her own and soon
finds herself in Ireland, prisoner of a radical separatist
group. Hot on the kidnappers' tail, though, is her
brother-in-law's friend, Bow Street Runner Rob Carmichael.
They will have to ride hard and sail a stormy sea to get
home. When they arrive in England, Rob learns something that
will change his life forever.
In SOMETIMES A ROGUE, Mary Jo Putney tells a breakneck tale
of escape and revenge. Rob Carmichael is a perfect action
hero -- strong, clever, and a scrappy fighter. Sarah
Clarke-Townsend is no damsel in distress. She can ride as
long and as fast as any man, and she has no qualms about
using a pan to subdue her attackers.
I really enjoyed SOMETIMES A ROGUE. Rob and Sarah are
well-matched and the danger they're in is realistically
portrayed. When a storm blows them ashore near Rob's family
home, he is forced to face new challenges, and he quickly
realizes that he can handle them much better with Sarah by
SOMETIMES A ROGUE is the fifth book in Putney's Lost
series. I have not read any of the others and still enjoyed
this book immensely. I highly recommend it for readers who
like their historical romances with a splash of action and
Even the most proper young lady yearns for adventure. But
when the very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke Townsend
impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts
her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister
discover they've abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay
with her life. . .
A Rogue. . .
Rob Carmichael survived his
disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and
becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a talent for
rescuing damsels in distress. But Sarah is one damsel who is
equal to whatever comes. Whether racing across Ireland with
her roguish rescuer or throwing herself into his arms, she
challenges Rob at every turn.
