Amusing and unrestrained!

The Rogue You Know (Covent Garden Cubs #2) by Shana Galen 


Is so enjoyed this Covent Garden Cubs issue.
Gideon Harrow is the original bad boy, the lost boy with a hidden generous soul. When he avoids pursuit inside Lady Susanna's house, he little knows that his life just took a turn for better and for worse.
Always a disappointment to her over protective mother, Lady Susanna Derring is the put upon daughter who decides, just this once, to seize the moment and have at least one grand adventure before being handed off in some unknown in marriage. So living up to her surname with an added 'do', as in derring-do, Susannah opts for blackmailing her new rogue acquaintance to achieve her dream--a visit to Vauxhall Gardens.
And what an adventure it turns out to be. I enjoyed the improbable impact Susannah has, not only on Gideon, but the other denizens of the rookeries she meets upon her way.
I loved Susanna's attitude, her fortitude and her loyalty. And of course 'Beauty' just added to the many moments. A couple of twists and turns just added to the intrigue.
