Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Chasing a Rogue

In 1817, Harriet Nash decides she wants Steven Morris as her husband so she decides to go after him treating him like a dog chasing after her, the fox. Steven wants Harriet also, but he needs money to climb out of severe debt caused by his mother when she met with a series of “accidents” while traveling the continent. Steven knows he needs an heiress.

Harriet persuades Steven to teach her how to “flirt” so she can go after a rake. In their tryst, both get carried away and they make love. He plans to marry her as more than just the honorable thing to do but even his best friend Royce is unable to help with the debt because his money has been challenged in court and frozen by a MacWilliams. This is the same person who bought up all of Steven's promissory notes and may have caused his mother's accidents. If he is to wed for love, Steven must learn why MacWilliams wants to destroy him.

CHASING A ROGUE is an enjoyable Regency romance that actually explains why the hero needs to wed an heiress as opposed to marrying for love. Though the reason behind the accidents seems very weak, sub-genre readers will delight in the antics of the lead couple, especially Harriet's campaign tactics. The return of characters from A MERRY CHASE will send the audience seeking that novel and other works by Victoria Malvey.
