A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution - but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans...and her heart.

Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.

Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.

As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war… (Goodreads)

A Rogue of One’s Own is the second book in the League of Extraordinary Women series by Evie Dunmore, and was also a book that I was super excited to read! I read Bringing Down the Duke back in March of this year and very much enjoyed that story, so of course I couldn’t wait to check out its sequel. This book did not disappoint!

There is so much about this book that I really enjoyed. It looks like all of the women that we originally met in the first book are going to get their own books as the series goes along, and I am so here for it.  The characters in this book fantastic. We originally met Lady Lucie in Bringing Down the Duke, and I think she’s is just fantastic. I love a good feminist, and her work as a suffragist was inspiring. And it doesn’t hurt that there’s lots of steamy romance between her and Lord Ballentine. *grin*

I also really love the setting and storyline for the book. I do not read nearly enough historical fiction anymore, and this book definitely makes me want to read more. (Which I hope to do soon!) I am fascinated by the time period, so give me all the historical romances, please!

While I have a paperback version of this book, I opted to listen to the audiobook after learning that it was narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki, who also narrated Bringing Down the Duke! I really enjoyed the voices that Elizabeth did for the characters and loved having her read the story to me. The voice in my head was not nearly as good as hers, and I hope that she narrates the rest of the series as well!

Overall; If you couldn’t already tell, I really enjoyed A Rogue of One’s Own! It was a fantastic sequel to Bringing Down the Duke, and I am beyond thrilled that there are going to be at least two more books in the series.  I will be anxiously waiting to get my hands on them!
