The Virgin and the Rogue: The Rogue Files Kindle Edition
USA Today Bestseller
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that the young lady everyone assumes is mousy has uncharted depths... particularly when there's a scientific sister, an aphrodisiac, and the stepbrother of a duke around. Creative, unique, and racy --this story is not unlike the very elixir around which it is based."--Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light
Continuing her bestselling Rogue Files series, Sophie Jordan brews up a scintillating romance about a timid wallflower who discovers a love potion and ends up falling for a dashing rogue.
A love potion…
Charlotte Langley has always been the prudent middle sister, so her family is not surprised when she makes the safe choice and agrees to wed her childhood sweetheart. But when she finds herself under the weather and drinks a “healing” tonic, the potion provokes the most maddening desire…for someone other than her betrothed.
With the power…
Kingston’s rakehell ways are going to destroy him and he’s vowed to change. His stepbrother’s remote estate is just the place for a reformed rogue to hide. The last thing he wants is to be surrounded by society, but when he gets stuck alone with a wallflower who is already betrothed... and she astonishes him with a fiery kiss, he forgets all about hiding.
To alter two destinies.
Although Charlotte appears meek, Kingston soon discovers there’s a vixen inside, yearning to break free. Unable to forget their illicit moment of passion, Kingston vows to relive the encounter, but Charlotte has sworn it will never happen again—no matter how earth-shattering it was. But will a devilish rogue tempt her to risk everything for a chance at true love?
"The sixth in the Rogue Files series is a lusty reversal of the rake-and-the-wallflower trope. A refreshing dose of fun—and the best in the series." (Kirkus Reviews (starred review)) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Historical Romances are my jam – but historical romances with misunderstood heroes are my kryptonite!
Before I move forward; I have to be clear – there will be people who will have consent issues – our protagonist, Charlotte was given a tonic to help with her menstrual cramps by Nora; which is something that she usually does; but this time Nora has tried playing with the ingredients, so even she doesn’t know EXACTLY what kind of effect the tonic would have. And it was under the effect of this tonic, that she somehow ends up “seducing” our hero, Kingston. They do manage to have an intense sexual encounter – I swear it was so freaking hot – but mostly because it wasn’t the hero who doses the heroine; neither does he take actual advantage of Charlotte.
But yes, there are triggers are here on consent; so I honestly would suggest to proceed with precaution!
Now, Charlotte is already betrothed to her childhood friend, William – a match that though not passionate is quite safe for her; even if his parents are the most horrid people ever (I swear, I am not exaggerating at all!). She is content with the way her life is going, especially after losing her parents and being almost destitute and now finally living with her sister and her husband, the Duke; until she ingests the tonic and has an encounter with duke’s stepbrother, Kingston.
Now she can’t seem to forget the passionate encounter nor can she seem to be able to help herself with the future encounters either (not under the influence of the tonic yet still as hot as the first one *wink*).
Kingston has been in a limbo; ever since he realised that his mother is dying; somehow that putting a stop on his hedonistic ways. He doesn’t know why, but he makes a stopover at his stepbrother’s house – a stepbrother with whom he somehow has never gotten along, but there are some proprieties when it comes to families, even illegitimate ones; and he plans on taking advantage of it. He has no plans to marry, but he does plan to resume his amourous activities, if he could get his attention peaked by any of the women willing.
But nope; his ardour somehow is reserved for the one woman who he SHOULDN’T be interested in nor one who is his type!
Charlotte and Kingston’s interactions were sizzling as well as hilarious – I absolutely adored and lived for it!

I didn’t feel that I as a reader, got to see the full potential of Charlotte the heroine, or feel like the relationship between her and the hero Samuel was building.. it was all a bit one dimensional and then suddenly they were in love and they all lived happily ever after.. (which of course I know is the end goal in a romance story, you just like it to build in a satisfying way)
it’s a real shame as the supporting cast and back story had the potential to be so much more than it turned out to be.. the worst thing was, I was really looking forward to reading it as Sophie Jordan is normally so good.. but it almost felt like a completely different author wrote this book.. I personally wouldn’t recommend.
You always get a great mixture of a different plot, sizzling love scenes, romance, and intrigue.
This story was very different than the common historical romance. There are some laughable unrealistic aspects but I wasn't looking for a 100% historically accurate novel, I wanted enjoyment and something different and that's what I got.
This is definitely a must read and can be a stand alone novel. no need to read the other books in this series.
