    1. I was somewhat disappointed with this book, mainly because I expected something else. I hoped there would be more angst and emphasis on the hero's opium addiction and his fight to get free, but the writer chose not to emphasize on that.It was also strange for me because the hero and heroine realize their love for each other early on and from that point on, it was only external problems having to do with the hero's war past and capture that got in their way and created any tension. The rogues fro [...]


    2. I put off reading this for nearly a week because I dreaded the story. Addiction isn't pretty or nice and I know that opium addiction ruins lives. I don't normally seek out "issue" books and this seemed likely to have all the hallmarks. Add a young and idealistic woman and the prospect for naïve narrative and the "healing power of love" and I smelled trainwreck.Falsely, as it happens.Beverley makes this work by making Dare's addiction an integral part of the story but doesn't revolve around it. [...]


    3. The story begins with Lady Mara wandering the streets of London trying to reach her sister's London home without getting caught. Did I mention that she is also only in her corset and wrapped in a blanket? Somehow, she manages to find her brother's best friend's home, but alas, he is not home. After a few moments of Terror, Dare arrives home and saves her. Lady Mara has known Dare for some time, but now she is grown and not the adventurous child she used to be. Even though he is recovering from w [...]


    4. Una vez más Jo Beverly ha logrado un libro inolvidable. Si bien es cierto que hacia el final todos los problemas por los que pasan los protagonistas se solucionan demasiado rápido y sin ningún contratiempo, la historia entre Mara y Daré es de las más bonitas y difíciles al mismo tiempo que he leído de esta serie.El es un adicto al opio desde hace años por culpa de una herida de guerra y ella es una joven que ha estado enamorada de el desde hace años. Al principio ella piensa que hacer q [...]


    5. Beverley is a hugely hit-or-miss author for me (My Lady Notorious is one of my all-time favorites but some of her novels, not so much). Luckily, TRaR falls into the ‘awesome’ pile. Not only is it pretty much hurt/comfort fantasy come true, I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen such an amazingly common-sense, sane heroine (the hero is awesome too, but the heroine’s sheer wonderfulness knows no bounds).Mara, our heroine, has known Darius (Dare to his friends) all her life as Dare and [...]


    6. I lost interest in this series a while back but thought I would give this one a go when I found it on my kindle.Much of this story is based on events which happened in previous books. Darius (Dare) was injured at the battle of Waterloo, rescued by a woman who nursed him back to health but deliberately got him hooked on opium as payback for being rejected by one of Dare's fellow 'Rogues'. Back in London, Dare has tried to cut back but cannot break his addiction.Mara is the sister of one of the Ro [...]


    7. As the story opens, Lady Mara St. Bride (sister of Simon from The Rogue's Return) is on the run down the worst streets of London, dressed in nothing but her skivvies. Lady Mara has a condition called Black Ademar's Hair. It evidently means that for every inch of hair growth, the sufferer loses an IQ point. And Mara's hair is really, really long. She was visiting a pregnant relative, got bored, so she snuck out to meet this middle-aged guy she thinks of as a "cool uncle," but he thinks of himself [...]


    8. This was the first Jo Beverley book I ever read, and it was my favorite. It's not my favorite now, I think, but still definitely top 3.The romance is always fabulous, but when the author adds in a real-world problem that's dealt with believably (addiction, in this case), it just turns the volume up on the story that much more.


    9. I actually cried afterwards, not moved, just depressed. It was better than the last one, because Dare is an opium addict, but Beverley is proud of her choice to show him many months after his rescue, so unless there is more about him in other novels we never get his pov of the imprisonment and torment.Mara would be unbearable in her shiny bubbliness if she weren't also smart and self-aware. It still stuck in my throat when after meeting Dare again she already says (ie. truly knows) that she love [...]


    10. Dare Debenham is addicted to laudanum after being wounded at Waterloo. He's determined to break free, but it's a long, slow process. Mara St Bride is a cheerful, gregarious family friend, who wants to bring brightness into Dare's life. Together they fight Mara's stalker, visit the Tower of London, save an actress from social ostracism, throw a ball, and much more. They are a seriously efficient couple.Everything about addiction and its treatment is immensely historically inaccurate, but then, wh [...]


    11. I listened to the audiobook version of this, rather than reading it.I generally love regency romance, and I have listened to one or two other Jo Beverly books. I did enjoy most of the hero and heroine interactions in this one, and there were a few parts that made me laugh out loud. The reason I didn't give this a higher rating was because Mara, the heroine, was sort of irritating.She starts off by making the huge mistake of going to a gaming hell with some random guy and then going to his rooms [...]


    12. While I appreciate the unique twist of having a drug-addicted hero, the actual characters were rather boring and the romance tepid. There were so many cameos of the other characters in the Rogue series it was overwhelming and impossible to remember who was who. They all started sounding the same. I was excited at first to see more of Hal and Blanche's story but they were merely two names bandied about by the other characters. They were made out to sound much weaker and pathetic than they'd seeme [...]


    13. I think this is my favorite one of the Company of Rogues series. Dare is such a strong, fearless hero. I fell in love with him all over again. The narrator is excellent and really brings the characters to life. Happy reading!


    14. I can't believe I hate myself enough to read this kind of nonsense.I thought I'd enjoy it because I never have high expectations when reading romance novels, and the 'lady somehow rescues tortured lord' plot is, for some fucked up reason, one of my favourites.Except this is literally the most boring, most terribly written book I've read in months. Perhaps years. It's just so excruciatingly embarrassing. The secondhand embarrassment is actually made worse by the fact that no character in this boo [...]


    15. Mi primera novela de la autora y no ha estado nada mal Pero ahora no se ni que sensación tengo. Acabo de terminar esta novela y me ha quedado una sensación de lo más rara. Entre gratificante y decepción. Unas veces estoy un poco loca y soy demasiado exigente a la hora de poner estrellitas así que si me leen no deben darme demasiado crédito porque también suelo ponerme cero objetiva jajaja.Pongamos en ejemplos lo que me pasó con este libro y saquen sus conclusiones:- Me mantuvo en vilo ha [...]


    16. Another story of The Company of Rogues this one tells the story of Lord Darius Debenham, the Rogue. In previous books of the series we discovered that Darius was believed to be dead after Waterloo. But after years of grieving the Rogues discovered he was still alive albeit imprisoned by Nicholas Delaney's enemy Therese Bellaire who doused him with huge amounts of opium making him an addict. As the story opens Mara St Bride, the sister of Simon of The Rogue's Return, is in big trouble. She is run [...]


    17. This is a romance plus the story of an addiction to drugs in a Regency setting. Intriguing!Darius (Dare) is the addicted and he has pretty good motives to loath his addiction - he is a victim of Napoleonic wars, addiction was not his fault - in fact, he tries seriously to getrid of it.Ademara (Mara for friends) is the girl in love with him since her childhood, who wants to help him recovering and regaining his own life and self esteeem.But rehab is not easy even if you are a son of a Duke, circl [...]


    18. After reading a couple other reviews, here's what I think: with Jo Beverley's novel series, it is important to read them in order. Each character appears in other books of the series, and some of what they do in their book may well be governed by events in the others. So, I can say, while this does not rank as high as some of the other books in this series (Devilish can not be topped, I fear), it is still an excellent book.Dare, it must be remembered, is a very strong person. And he has had help [...]


    19. EhI can't say that this book was all that great. It was the first book by Beverly I've read and I wasn't impressed. I really disliked that Mara decided she loved Dare after only seeing him and talking to him twice since his return from war/captivity. If Dare was the same guy she'd known as a kid it might be more believable.ead it seems she's fallen in love with her own idea of who Dare is. That was the only real problem I had with the story itself. All my other complaints are just that this stor [...]


    20. I love Jo Beverley, her historical romances are great. This particular book is about Dare, he is a soldier who was wounded at Waterloo. He saves Mara from ruin in the beginning of the book and you realize after the first few chapters that he is the one that needs saving. He is addicted to opium for the pain he has, it also helps him forget everything that happened. There are parts where you really see what opium can do to even the strongest person, he was eating fresh lemons out of a bowl to cur [...]


    21. My favorite of the Rogue series. Darius and Mara had a friendship that truly escalated to more. Dare has been returned to his family after his Waterloo abduction and forced addiction to opium. Mara is experiencing London for the first time and she is living up to her true heritage of the "devil hair" that she and Hr brother Simon share! Trouble brings her to Dare's door and the two find a friendship and eventually love. Mara helps Dare through his addiction and it makes their bond deeper. Of cou [...]


    22. 3.5 stars out of 5 I've never listened to or read Jo Beverley's romances before,but I did enjoy listening to this audio book. I thought it started out promising, the two main characters, Mara St Bride and Lord Darius Debenham likeable, but I thought I could have got more out of this romance if I had read or listened to previous Rogue novels as the other characters we meet were obviously developed in other novels. I thought that the love story took a back seat to the hero's fight to overcome his [...]


    23. Lady Mara St. Bride doesn't want to live a dull and dreary life. Although out in society, she still can be a little impulsive at times in order to go on adventures. Only one adventure, where she ends up at a single man's house and he tells her she has to marry him now when she is discovered, could have ended very badly if it wasn't for running into Lord Darius Debenham, her older brother's close friend. Darius and Mara find what is missing in their individual lives with each encounter their have [...]


    24. Boring. Boring. Boring. I did not think it was necessary to take me through every step of the rehab program for Dare. I thought Mara used her hair color as an excuse to be a rebellious 18 year old. It seemed to be written by a committee. There were too many distracting side issues. The good part was the tour guide through London. I bought a map of London and was able to follow them. It was really interesting to see how they fit into the 'big' picture. It took them an hour by carriage to go from [...]


    25. TT review:Found Jo Beverley's To Rescue A Rogue, which I bought for myself last Christmas, tucked into the present-hiding closet and then lost until August. Typical. I liked it fine -- it's the last book in her Company of Rogues series and it wraps them all up. Maybe too neatly. As a long-time reader of the series I rather like that, but I think it came at the expense of the central relationship, which started out promising and got a bit cliched, perhaps to make room for all the other characters [...]


    26. This was a sweet book. Saccharine sweet, but it never turned me off. The characters loved each other from the start, and there were a few minor obstacles, but nothing with great angst or drama. Still, it hung together because the main characters where just so likable. I really enjoyed reading about them and their interactions with each other. Beverly writes the type of male lead I like best: a good, decent beta or gamma male. Mara put me off at times. She swung between an utterly realistic star- [...]


    27. I normally really like Jo Beverley's romances, but I could only give this one a 3 out of 5 stars. It started out promising, the two main characters are likeable, but the love story took a back seat to the hero's fight to overcome his opium addiction, and several other stories about other characters I didn't really care about. It is obvious that the writer wanted to bring in all the other couples from the previous 'Rogue' series, but if you haven't read the previous books you don't know them and [...]


    28. This is a very odd book.Our leading lady is a rambunctious, "willful", sometimes childish character.Our hero is the scarred, need to get better to love you type.It just.didn't work for me.Mara made some stupid mistakes that involved other people to extract her from the situations she got herself into. It's like the saying "your actions affect those around you" that really a saying?Either way, we get a HEA but I wasn't really applauding the match.I would not recommend this book : / sorry.I usuall [...]


    29. I want to give myself a gold star! I read the entire Company of Rogues in less than a year. I have just finished To Rescue a Rogue and found it just as wonderful as the first - maybe more so since some of the Rogues, their families and their friends continued to turn up in each successive book until they are able to all rally around Dare and Mara in the final book. I am eager to continue my association with the Rogues in further books - like Lady Beware, which features Dare's sister. Oh, but a g [...]


    30. This was just an okay read, nothing exceptionally good or bad about it. It took me forever to read and that is not normal for me at all. I think it took so long to get through because it lacked any real excitement; I knew where it was going and how it was going to end. There were no surprises. And the constant remarks about Mara's hair got old.
