Who is the darkly handsome Don John “Black Jack” Blackthorn? With his air of mystery and menace, the whispers about him hint of highwayman or government agent or even dark prince. But no one knows what it is Black Jack does… or how dangerous he can truly be. Now Jack’s mentor has disappeared, and Jack must track him down before it’s too late. His unlikely help: the man’s daughter—the very woman Jack had once wooed and betrayed.

Lady Tess Fonteneau knows more about the fine art of clandestine activities—and about the mysterious Mr. Blackthorn—than he realizes. As their journey leads them on the adventure of a lifetime, their reunion is fraught with passion, high-stakes danger and the one twist of fate Jack never saw coming…

I feel in love with the Blackthorn Brothers right from the very first book; Beau who is so dependable, Puck who is so light hearted and Jack who is so dark and mysterious.  And because of my bent, I could hardly wait until Jack’s book came out.  And MUCH ADO ABOUT ROGUES was well worth the wait.

In MUCH ADO ABOUT ROGUES, we are taken on a wild jaunt about England as Jack and Tess attempt to find her father.  During this time, Jack and Jess have the time to relearn the other’s characters again.  After four years, is there enough still between them to rebuild a relationship?  

Ms. Michael’s does a fabulous job of delving and further developing Jack’s character.  It just causes me to fall further in love with the character.  And of course for such a dark and dangerous man, not an ordinary woman of the times would be appropriate.  Tess is such an interesting character.  So hard and yet so soft.  

I very much enjoyed this particular book and loved the satisfying conclusion of both the book and the series.  I do highly recommend this series to lovers of unusual historical romances.  I rate this book a 4.6.

***I did receive this book from Net Gallery for no charge in exchange for providing an honest review.  No monies has or will exchange hands.
