Once More, My Darling Rogue
Drake Darling was born the son of a murderer but raised as the son of a duke. That does not stop Lady Ophelia Lyttleton from snubbing him at every turn for his lowly background. When Darling rescues Ophelia from the river and finds she has no memory of who she is, he plans for a little payback. He convinces Ophelia she is his servant but he never imagines he might actually start to fall for the enchanting woman Ophelia’s usual haughty façade hides.
The story starts off slow, and while Darling is easy to relate to, his romance with Ophelia is more difficult to swallow. After the way Ophelia treats Darling it is understandable that he would want to put her in her place but much of her initial behavior as a “servant” just seems to re-enforce her lazy and shrew-like behavior. It is hard to understand why it endears her to Darling. Eventually Ophelia becomes a more likeable character and at that point the story becomes more engaging. However, one point near the end tarnishes Darling’s character, which along with the slow start solidly plants this story as a 3 star read.
