Review: Never Rescue a Rogue by Virginia Heath


Genre: Historical Romance
Pages: 366
Published: November 8, 2022

Diana Merriwell and Giles Sinclair only tolerate one another for the sake of their nearest and dearest. Everyone believes that the two of them are meant to be together, but Diana and Giles know that their constant pithy barbs come from a shared disdain—not a hidden attraction. Diana loves the freedom of working at the newspaper too much to give it up for marriage, and Giles is happily married to his bachelor lifestyle. But they do have one thing in common—the secrets they can’t risk escaping.

When Giles’ father, the curmudgeonly Duke of Harpenden unexpectedly turns up his toes, it’s only a matter of time before someone comes crawling out of the woodwork who knows the true circumstances of his only son's birth. As the threat of blackmail becomes real, Giles must uncover the truth of his parentage first, or else he and all those who depend upon him will be ruined—and dogged bloodhound Diana is his best hope at sniffing out the truth. As Giles and Diana dive into his family’s past, the attraction that the two of them insisted wasn’t there proves impossible to ignore. Soon, the future of the Sinclair estate isn’t the only thing on the line…

Yes, I heard that nonsense loud and clear but have decided to ignore it because it was ridiculous!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.

Being a romance, the basic plot of this story was predictable, but that's why we read romances right? Because we want that predictability. That being said, there were a lot of fun twists and turns along the way, and even though I figured everything out before the reveals, it kept me guessing for a bit first, not entirely sure I was right even though my gut was telling me I was. 

I liked how strong and independent Diana was and that Giles was a genuinely nice guy. Even though he put on a show for the general public, Diana was smart enough to see through it all along, brains that served her well in many areas of her life. And it was a bit heartbreaking to see how Giles felt like he needed to push people away because of his deep, dark secret. I couldn't help but root for these two to succeed in their goals and end up together in the end. 

Overall I give Never Rescue a Rogue 4.5 out of 5 stars. - Katie 

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Twenty-five books, two publishers and three Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominations later, and it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
