Publisher's Summary

Lady Guinevere Darlington has spent the last five years trying to forget the beautiful rogue who stole her heart and then crushed it under his shiny black hessian. Humiliated by the blighter with the unforgettable brogue and left to weather the wagging tongues of the ton alone, she started a secret society that delivers justice to ill-intentioned rakes, and she managed to avoid having to wed - until now. But while her time is up, her determination is not. If she must take a husband, she’ll do so on her own terms. She has a plan, and a possible candidate, until the Scot she once loved returns to London and throws her life into salacious turmoil yet again.

Asher Talbot, the newly minted Duke of Carrington, has nearly perfected his ability to repress memories of the stunning, stubborn lass who long ago captivated him with her innocent charm, then slayed him with her duplicity. He channeled his anger into continuing to build the distillery empire he started when he thought he was a by-blow. But now his company is in danger, and he intends to secure his inheritance to save it, even if it requires pursuing the perfidious enchantress he disavowed. True reconciliation is not part of his plot, but hints of the Guinevere he thought he knew leave him questioning everything.

When fate, fortune, and a cunning scheme bring these two together, their mutual attempts to torture each other ignite the dormant desire between them. But secrets surround them, and they’ll have to unravel each one before the love they glimpsed is lost forever.

Join the adventure today! You’ll love Lady Guinevere and the Rogue with a Brogue is book one in the Scottish Scoundrels: Ensnared Hearts series! It’s a captivating regency Scottish romance by USA Today best-selling author Julie Johnstone!

How Many Times Do They Have to Make the Same Mistake?

Goodness! This couple suffers the same problem of mistrusting the right person and trusting the wrong person implicitly over and over and over ad nauseum. And the same Evil Meddler uses the same ploy every time. Think of Uncle Scar from Lion King telling Simba about all the reasons he shouldn't do something with the result being Simba doing exactly the ill-advised thing, which was Scar''s intent. In this case, Scar is the Hero's brother who wants something that isn't his. He sets in motion his Machiavellian scheme five years before the story begins. We begin with the H and h re-encountering each other after five years of both characters harboring righteous indignation and hurt from the way their romance ended, which unbeknownst to them, was orchestrated by the scheming brother who simultaneously manipulated five characters into acting out the roles he intended to cause the demise of the couple's blossoming romance. The story becomes chapter after chapter of the brother planting malicious seeds of doubt that get exactly the response he intended. There is episode after episode after dramatic episode of H and h having a chance to clear up past misunderstandings when, right on cue, malicious "Uncle Scar" plants the seeds of his made-up rumors and insinuation and everyone believes him without a second thought while easily mistrusting the person they love. The reader gets to experience supposedly intelligent, witty characters fall for the same ploy a RiDiCuLouS number of times.

I believe this story will be enjoyed by anyone who gets pleasure from self-flagelation. Others can give it a pass.

Lady Guinevere was very naive

I read a review before I listened to the story and the reviewer said something along the lines of perfect example of trusting all the wrong people for no good reason. I agree with that review but it is a commen problem with historical Regency novels the heroine will just take the villains word and run with it even when given no good reason to trust them.

Sorry but no

I love Julie Johnstone and have enjoyed many of her books...but this one NO. Boring and so irritating. Why are these two so dumb. Gwen says she loves him but she obviously doesn't trust him. Asher constantly believes the worst of her. why even bother. Only good thing is Tim Campbell.

The Course of True Love Never…

Never had to deal with characters as frustrating as these. Gosh! They’d might as well be preteens. At times I wanted to scream or even stop reading. HEA thankfully but one crisis after another, many contrived in their minds. Great writing but characters just too juvenile for my taste. Wonderful narrator.

It was okay

The storyline was a bit repetitive. A lot of of the same conversations happened between the main characters over and over. Apart from that, it was an enjoyable book. Tim Campbell did an amazing job as always!

Ho hum...

I usually like this author but in this particular work I found a bit boring for my tastes.
I like interesting plots with twists and turns, maybe some insights into the idiosyncrasies of the times, the roles of women, the customs, the historical background, and so on. But the characters in this case were highly emotional and that resulted in clouded thinking and misguided perceptions of each other and others. One could say that this novel maybe wanted to explore trust issues. Hmmm.... Well, it was written with the usual formulaic tropes of misunderstandings, lack of trust, and game playing.
No, I think Im passed that.
I have no problem with the writing, and I expected excellence from this author, but I look for something a little more substantial in a story.
Spin me a good yarn with some heart warming romance and some depth of insight into whatever human condition, folly or ordeal, for purposes of learning something about our complex human relationships.
The characters themselves could have been depicted more colourfully, perhaps given some charisma, passions, interests or talents, whatever, to make me know and like them. If so, then I would have cared more about them and their emotional plights. Nope. Didn't happen.
Sorry, I dont mean to overstate my impressions. It wasn't THAT bad. It just was...ho hum.

On another note, I must say though the narrator was great.
He, Tim Campbell, is the reason I read as far as I did. His Scottish brogue is beautiful and just a pleasure to listen to.

A complicated romance of deceit, manipulation and anger

Asher and Guinevere are star crossed lovers who a secret enemy plots to keep apart. The story is a roller coaster of emotion, manipulation and the villain is deceptive. All the characters of the later stories are introduced in this book and Tim Campbell does an amazing job of voicing all the characters especially Asher’s brogue! You feel the h/h frustration and anger as they suspect they are being manipulated but their need to trust each other is constantly challenged and sometimes well meaning friends do damage. It’s a wild ride until the end.

Too much angst and frustration

Can't say I enjoyed it as much as her medieval historical Scottish romances there was too much angst and frustration. Guinevere was so annoying, and for someone as intelligent as her she was being quite an idiot. Indirectly she was to blame for all the bad things that happened between Asher and herself because she believed everything everyone told her about Asher, and doubted him, the man she has loved all these years. It went on and on for too long. I don't know if I will listen to the next one as I believe it will all be repeated again but with a different Hero and Heroine. Julie Johnston's Regency romances tend to go on and on with a lot of angst, I much prefer her medieval historical Scottish romances, in fact I love all of those and have listened to them again and again, but I won't be listening to this again or any of her other Regency romances.
Tim Campbell was brilliant as always, I think if it wasn't for his narrating I would have given up and stopped.
