She knows what she wants. Miss Sophie Kendall is happiest arranging the secret meetings of the Debutante Underground, a group of women who come together to discuss the weekly advice column The Debutante’s Revenge. What makes Sophie most unhappy is her impending march down the aisle to a man she does not love. But her family’s finances are in increasingly dire straits.

He makes an offer she can’t refuse. Henry Reese, Earl of Warshire, hasn’t slept in weeks. Desperate to escape his manor house and its haunting memories, he heads for one of his abandoned London properties. There he meets a beautiful, intriguing woman―trespassing. Reese is far less interested in Sophie’s search for a secret meeting spot than he is in her surprising ability to soothe his demons. So he strikes a bargain with her: his shop in exchange for spending one night a week with him.

Is this love for real―or just a dream? Sophie never expected this to happen. But she cannot deny the fire Reese sparks in her―and soon their shared desire burns bright. Sophie is irrevocably promised to another. But maybe these two ill-fated lovers can find a way to risk it all―all the way to happily ever after…

When You Wish Upon a Rogue by Anna Bennett

I loved reading Sophie and Reese’s story in When You Wish Upon a Rogue by Anna Bennett, book three in her Debutante Diaries series.

Miss Sophie Kendall is the third partner creating “The Debutante’s Revenge,” a tell-all advice column for young ladies. Sophie’s position is in arranging the secret meetings of the Debutante Underground, a weekly gathering of women to discuss the weekly advice column. It is from these discussions that Sophie gleans ideas for future topics. Unfortunately Sophie has agreed to sacrifice herself to marry a man she does not love in order to help her family whose finances are in very bad shape.

While looking for a larger meeting location Sophie encounters Henry Reese, Earl of Warshire, the owner of an abandoned shop. Reese is shocked by Sophie’s fresh approach to life and her insistence and ability to help him soothe his demons and find a peaceful slumber. These two then strike a deal, his shop in exchange for her spending one night a week with him. The problem is that Sophie and Reese never expected to share a magnetic attraction, a sizzling chemistry and a shared desire they want to act on, but cannot; since Sophie is practically engaged to another.

I loved how these two star-crossed lovers risk it all, break Sophie’s impending engagement, continue to keep the names of the members of the Debutante Underground a secret, and for Sophie and Reese to finally get their happy ever after.

Ms. Bennett wrote a charming, clever, entertaining and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with mysterious escapades, amusing banter, sizzling chemistry, devoted friends, and charming characters giving Sophie and Reese a chance for happiness, love and a future together.  I definitely recommend When You Wish Upon a Rogue to other readers.
