Mac's plans to become respectable as an above the board shipper ends the moment he meets the intrepid Joanna. He follows her as she takes him on a tour of London that would frighten dockworkers. As they work in close proximity on recovering the artifact, they fall in love, but both have reasons to avoid commitment.

ROGUE'S PROMISE is a strong Regency romance that never allows the audience to catch their breath. Yet while all that action is occurring, the talent of Peggy Waide shines through the plot as she provides the audience with two complete lead characters whose motives are understood and make sense. Ms. Waide endows readers with a powerful historical tale worth reading by anyone who enjoys good writing.
