Rogues RedeemedAs heir to a title and great wealth Will Masterson should have stayed home and tended his responsibilities Instead he went to war Now after perilous years fighting the French he intends his current mission to be his last But all his plans are forgott I drifted off twice while reading thisThe hero and heroine meet and because insta lust would be too exciting they just kind of really like each other Ok so they are uite lovely together and talk and share and calmly talk some My kingdom for a scorned other woman devious uncle or some other over the top villain I bemoan these tropes but at least they give the story some lifeAlso I love myself some wine but reading over and over about how this fictitious country has the best and how were they ever going to recover the buried wine had me wanting to throw my bottles out JK JK I would neverI loved the beginning with the captured men escaping and loosely forming the Rogues Redeemed but the numerous mentions of the heroine's height and I'm an myself wine and extremely mellow romance that was pushed to the side in favor of discussing how the fictitious country could rebuild from the war was bland as naked toast
