When You Wish Upon a Rogue by Anna Bennett
Series: Debutante Diaries #3
Genres: Historical Romance
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…

This was such a good book. I actually started reading just before bed thinking I would read a little and then go to sleep. I instead stayed up all night reading it. This is book three of the series but can certainly be read on its own. Characters from previous books do show up but you won’t be lost not knowing anything about them.
Reese has PTSD and is just trying to find some peace when he meets Sophie trespassing. She is busy trying to find a secret meeting place. There is just something about Sophie that soothes Reese’s soul. Even though she is meant to marry another to secure her family’s future. You can tell from their first meeting that Reese and Sophie belong together. It is one those stories that tugs at your heartstrings and gives all sorts of feelings.
This certainly needs to be on your to be read list for this year for certain. If you love historical romance or maybe are looking to dip your tow into the genre this is the perfect book to start with.
