Once More my Darling Rogue
The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James # 2 
By: Lorraine Heath 
Releasing August 26th, 2014 

From New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath, comes the second book in a brand new series, The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James, featuring three eligible bachelors...and the scoundrels that reside within each.

Born to the street but raised within the aristocracy, Drake Darling can't escape his sordid beginnings. Not when Lady Ophelia Lyttleton snubs him at every turn, a constant reminder he's not truly one of them. But after rescuing her from a mysterious drowning, he realizes she doesn't remember who she is. With plans to bring her to heel, he insists she's his housekeeper—never expecting to fall for the charming beauty. 

While Ophelia might not recall her life before Drake, she has little doubt she belongs with him. The desire she feels for her dark, brooding employer can't be denied, regardless of consequences. So when Ophelia's memory returns, she is devastated by the depth of his betrayal. Now Drake must risk everything to prove she can trust this rogue with her heart once more.

My Review
Drake worries about the darkness inside him. He knows what his father did and worries he will do the same so he never plans to marry. He was born in the streets but an aristocracy family took him in and raised him like one of their own. He knows he is really one of them but one Lady really sets out to show him he is nothing. Ophelia doesn't like when ladies flirt with those beneath them. Drake has to be set in his place and she is the one to do so. When she looses her memory in a near drowning Drake sees it as the perfect time to get some revenge. He sill show her what it is like to be a housekeeper and how it feels to have someone order you around. He didn't plan on falling for her. Phee is sure this isn't her life but she enjoys being near Drake. When her memory returns she is horrified at how far Drake went to make a point and she doesn't think it will ever work with the man who now has her heart but not her trust.

Drake is a dark man inside but with the family who raised him he shows how charming and loving he can be. He takes insults all the time but he can be pushed to far. Even when he lets Ophelia think she is his housekeeper he still doesn't ask her to do a lot of work. He treats her good. He is also the type of guy who keeps digging to make him self better. Ophelia is snobby and a brat at first. I have to say I did not like her one bit. the way she treated people was horrible. Phee as Drake let her think her name was is a much more nicer person. She still has the airs of the rich but she learns what it is like to be poor. She takes care of animals and steps in when people try to hurt them. She is very giving and sharing. Phee is the true woman who hides behind the mask of a lady who looks down on everyone.

I have to say at first I worried I would not like this book. I didn't like the main character and thought how is this going to be good. However when Ophelia becomes Phee I ended up really loving her. She has many secrets and once they come out you see why she is the way she is. The author does an amazing job on these characters and all they ave gone through. There is a mystery to this story as Drake tries to figure out how Phee almost drown. With no memory he doesn't have a lot to go on. I was very surprised by who did it and why. It is a horrible person and they are a villain to the bone. I love the romance and love between Drake and Phee. They always had a spark but being close together that spark flares to a fire. This was an amazing book that I hated to see end. If you like historical romance then hurry and pick this one up!
