Review: The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman

Ttile: The Princess and the Rogue
Series: Bow Street Bachelors #3
Author: Kate Bateman

A princess in disguise is forced to live with a rogue in order to protect her from danger in this fun, sexy regency romance.

Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn't believe in love―until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.

Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain 'Anna Brown'. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff's offer of protection―and accommodation―at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya's true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue

There is no secret that I love pretty covers. I started this series thanks to the covers, and I'm so very glad that the stories were as good if not better! Also, this is my favorite story of the 3 and I can't wait to see what else Ms Bateman will write. 

This is the story of the last of the three friends, Sebastian the Earl of Mowbray. He's bored out of his mind since is friends married and moved from the club all three of them own. Both of them keep trying to convince him to marry, but he's adamantly opposed. Here enters Anya, aka Anastasia a princes on the run. Their 1st meeting is my favorite from the whole series, especially the way she kind of left him speechless(and more). 

The book also has a good suspense plot with an evil prince and spies and a lot of other stuff that I won;t spoil for you. Ms Bateman wrote wonderful characters and I loved seeing the relationship between the tow of them develop. I also loved seeing the characters from the first and second book and all the new secondary characters. 

If you're in the mood for a suspenseful story filled with banter and heart, you should totally read this book. It's not mandatory to have read books 1 and 2, though it would enhance the experience.
