He insists that she stay the night at the manor, this starts a series of events that end up leaving Eden homeless. Chester feels responsible and offers her a job, she declines, but when she falls ill, he takes matters into his own hands. This was a sweet story and I loved Chester - LOVED HIM. This story was very well done and while it is short, it was definitely paced perfectly and the love between Chester and Eden felt fully developed.

    Ten years after leaving his family home when his father disowned him, Manchester, Marquis of Stirling has returned because his father is sick. He dreads seeing his father again so he stops at an inn for a little dutch courage before heading to the estate. It is at that pub that he is run into, literally by Eden.

He dreads seeing his father again so he stops at an inn for a little dutch courage before heading to the estate. It is at that pub that he is run into, literally by Eden. She is entering the inn, arms laden with produce from her smallholding just as Chester (Manchester) is leaving. Her produce ends up all over the floor and Chester's boots, and Eden ends up in his arms. The latter of which neither seemed to mind about. From that moment there was an attraction between them and when circumstances occur that have them spending more time together they can't help but feel more for each other than simple attraction. The big problem is that she is the daughter, albeit an illegitimate one of the man that Chester's family consider their worst enemy. Chester himself doesn't believe that the feud is worth carrying forward, and that was even before he met Eden. Will his father ever allow them a chance for a future, not likely considering he has a wealthy woman lined up to be Chester's wife. There were some truly wicked people in this story, one who may redeem himself and others that have no chance. Thankfully there were some wonderful characters too. Eden is one of them, what a delight she is with her beautiful caring personality and her little quirks such as putting a sunhat on her horse! I really loved her and at times I kind of thought that Chester didn't actually deserve her. Do they get their happy ever after, and if so what hoops do they have to go through to get it? This may have been a novella but it certainly ticked all the boxes for a nicely paced, exciting romance. One that I am happy to recommend.

    Legend has it that the blue rose only blooms when true love is found. Will it bloom for a marquis and a perky miss born on the wrong side of the blanket and to a member of the family so hated by his father? My attention was captured from the moment Egglantina Eden Haverden dumps her eggs on Manchester’s, Chester, boots to the end. I absolute adore Collette Cameron’s wit and writing style and A Rose for a Rogue did not disappoint.

Chester is the son of a Duke, called home because his father is ill. A poor relationship with his father makes the visit challenging. When Eden helps Chester get home, shortly after they meet, the story takes off. The chemistry between these characters starts strong and made me smile through the rest of the story. This short story has good guys, bad guys, dramatic situations and the most adorable animals. I only wish that Collette had given them a full novel to include Chester's back story and more about some of the secondary characters like Eden's mother and half-brother as well as Chester's father. But I am delighted with this story. So much story and so much emotion.

    Decent, non-rake H and sweet h. Short and safe, with no mentions of the H's past. I don't understand why it took the H so long to do what he finally did in the end (view spoiler)[propose (hide spoiler)] , but oh well. The plot was a bit OTT and the character underdeveloped, but overall this short was just fine. Decent, non-rake H and sweet h. Short and safe, with no mentions of the H's past.

    When the Blue rose blooms, enemies become lovers. Chester and Eden have every reason to hate each other. She is the illegitimate daughter of Chester’s family’s enemy, her half brother killed Chester’s brother. Eden has no reason to like high born lords. Her father treated her and her mother miserably and when he passed the house she and her mother lived in is threatened by her legitimate half brother. I loved the premise of this love story and the legend of the blue rose!

    Eden Haverden has tried to avoid scandal her entire life. Having been born "on the wrong side of the blanket", her life is a scandal in itself. Her mother was a governess who was despoiled by her employer and later turned mistress to provide for her young daughter. Eden and her mother have been living in a small cottage on the estate of her half brother, who is determined to evict them. Even the slightest breath of impropriety from Eden could get them cast out.

Through a series of twists and turns the two fall in love... but did I mention there's a family feud? Eden is the bastard daughter of Chester's fathers arch enemy. A Rose for a Rogue is an absolutely charming story of love in all walks of life. It's a Cinderella-ish tale of a girl who never expects to fall in love, but falls deeply and madly just the same.

From the first moment they meet, Manchester (Chester), Marquis of Sterling, is captivated by Eden Haverden. After receiving word that his father is very ill, Chester plans a return home after several years of absence. On the way home, he visits a nearby tavern after his horse is lamed. Upon exiting the tavern, he literally runs into Eden Haverden who upends her basket of eggs onto his boots. From that moment on, Chester is captivated by Eden and begs a ride home from her. Eden is the illegitimate sister of a man who killed Chester’s older brother in a ridiculous duel years before. His brother had been the favored son and his father blamed Chester for his death as well as Eden’s family. Both of them have obstacles to overcome. As the sole support for her ill mother, Eden has done her utmost to live a scandal-free life due to the status of her birth. Chester has been diligent about the life he has led and wants to remove the taint of a sinful duchy. I loved both of these main characters. Rightfully so, Eden is wary of trusting anyone of the ton or gentry. It took her longer to believe in Chester as she first thought him a charming rogue. Though Eden would be deemed unsuitable by his peers, Chester was so attracted to her and found her so unexpected that he knew she was perfect for him. He knows sooner than her that he wants her in his life permanently. His challenge is to find the right moment to convince her. Not helping in this situation is his conniving father, the Duke DeCourcy. If you want a delightful, sweet romance to read and enjoy, I sincerely recommend this work by Collette Cameron. I was lucky to receive an ARC from the author and offer this voluntary and unbiased review. Reasons I enjoyed this book: wonderful characters, romantic, funny, entertaining, happily ever after, whimsical, and easy-to-read.

Not only is she the illegitimate offspring of his father’s arch enemy, she’s also the sister of the man who’d killed his brother. I’m so pleased Chester has had his story, I loved him in an earlier book. A charming, often humorous story of two people from vastly different backgrounds finding love. Eden is a strong young woman caring for her mother & eking out a living growing & selling produce. I thought Simon was despicable, until he had his wake up call, I also disliked the duke but he did mellow with time. The attraction between Chester & Eden was apparent from their first meeting & only grew, they also found that they could talk to each other & liked each other as well as falling in love. I loved the blooming of the rose add a couple of distracting pets & I was a very happy satisfied reader who read this delightful book in two sittings My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

He needs some assistance after his horse is injured and darling Miss Eden gives him a lift home. After an accident she must spend the night at his home. She is the illegitimate daughter of his father's enemy and being under the same roof doesn't go over well with the Duke. It doesn't take Chester long to fall in love and realize he needs Eden (and her array of pets) but convincing Eden to accept and trust him is a whole other story. Eden doesn't trust the "upper" crust. Her mother and Eden have lived content in a cottage off her father's land and her Half brother is not happy about it. When Simon learns that his sister has spent an unchaperoned night with the enemy he has some words. Words that Chester does not like. Their argument gets Eden and her mother thrown out. Now she must find work and does (as Chester's housekeeper) and provide for her mother. Now Chester has his work cut out for him. Eden is his heart and he really must make her see it.

Chester is totally enchanted and finds out she is the illegitimate sister of the man who killed his brother years ago. One thing leads to another and as he takes her to her home, she shows him her rose garden and there is the blue rose with buds on it. I adored Eden! She was very whimsical with her pet squirrel Acorn and menagerie of people and animals. Chester was just swoon worthy and great interaction between the two. I loved Chester's thoughts "There was something truly unique about Miss Eden Haverden". Can the legendary rose bring them together even though their families had been enemies? You will be totally enchanted by this story and heave a heartfelt sigh at the end. This was part of the Rogues to Lovers collection

    "A Rose for a Rogue" is a wonderful story of two people who share "a legendary love". Their families are enemies, they are from different classes, they have quite different ways of looking at life, and yet - perfect for each other. It's not all roses and sunshine (please excuse the pun) but that's what makes the story so compelling and such a good read. Highly recommend.

They would both like to help the families make amends within and between the families. The old Duke and Eden’s brother are stubborn and mean, but possibly redeemable. The story flows along quickly with a good dose of action and drama, as well as a surprise or two, and a blue rose.

He has a volatile relationship with is father, since his father blames Manchester for the death of his older son, Byron. While wasting time at the inn, he literally runs into a young woman who takes his breath away. Eglantina, who goes by her middle name, Eden. She is the bastard daughter of a local gentry man, and doesn’t fit in any of the different classes, she is not quite a noble nor is she a commoner. There is a family feud between the Anderson’s and Chester’s family, so being smitten isn’t helping her position any. Chester does not care and in fact is trying to repair relations between the families. A harder task then he thought, as Simeon Anderson does not wish to end the feud as stubborn as he is. Eden lives on the charity an an agreement between the elder Anderson and her mother. Her mother was disgraced by the older man against her will and that also hangs over Eden’s head. Eden ends up taking Chester back to Perygrin Park, the house of the Lords as his horse was lame. He also took advantage of this situation to get to know Eden better. After staying the night at the manor because of an accident in the river, rumors abound about her improper behavior. Her half-brother takes advantage of the situation and throws both her mother and her out of the house they had been living. Chester takes them in, offering a Job for Eden. Their relationship grew to such a passion that they could no longer ignore it. I absolutely loved the character of Eden, she is quirky and does not follow common dress. She has such a heart of gold, as she takes in any stray that walks her way. This is also a reason why Chester falls in love with her. Eden is also proud and ignores the jabs that threw at her from the village and Chester’s father. She is also such a strong character, ignoring the normal way a woman is supposed to act in this time period. Chester is also a wonderful character, as he also fights the temper and imprudence that haunts his family. The Marquise’s have not had good reputation in quite a time, and his father is not helping the situation. He makes sure that the is completely different from anyone else, keeping his temper under better control. The author does a great job of showing the difference between Chester and his elder brother Byron. Also, the reason for the feud between these two families is over a stag and a duel that went wrong. He also had the strength to defy his father and marries for love instead of following his father’s plan. I love the interactions between Eden and Chester, there is passion and tenderness. He does everything he can to help Eden and her mother, taking them in and caring for them and the the animals that Eden owned. The passion was sweet and heated at the same time, which makes Eden fight harder. She does not want to end up as her mother. Chester is workinghard to show is a different type of man. The only thing that I wish could have been done is to make the courtship a little longer. They meet, fall in love and the next thing you know they are living together. All in all, this is a great read with great character’s and a wonderful plot line. You’ll be drawn into their world and feel what the two lovers feel.

I like that sometimes because the line between love and lust fades when the hero and heroine hit the sheets too quickly and you really don't know what's propelling the story. In this case, it was love at first sight. Chester is aristocracy and Eden is a bastard daughter of a deceased earl and has no claims to anything and is pretty much destitute. Chester's horse has gone lame and he needs a ride home. He hasn't been home in ten years and he told his ailing father that he would be home in time to celebrate Chester's birthday. Today was that day. Eden was adorable. She had a scraggly dog with her and a horse that was wearing a floppy hat because it didn't like the rain. I didn't care one way or the other about the dog's name, which was Mr. Wiggles in case you're wondering, but the horse's name was Peony. When I saw that, a big smile came across my face. None of the animals stole the show, but they were a big part of the plot. I just happen to love the name Peony and thought it was worth mentioning. I digress. Eden is a sweet girl. She's beautiful, kind, and humble. She was doing okay until she gave Chester a ride home and fell into the river when the dog cart got stuck. It was cold and raining and he insisted that she stay at his place that night in a separate room, of course. What she didn't know until she got to his estate that his family and her family were bitter enemies because her half-brother shot Chester's brother in a duel years ago. Chester's father missed the joke with Chester bringing home the enemy. Chester is so noble, though. He didn't care that Eden was a supposed member of the family foe. It was love at first sight for him. He didn't care about the inane feud. He didn't care that she was of lower social class than he. Nothing like that mattered. He knew what he wanted and he wanted Eden for life. He just had to sway her to see things his way. This was a beautiful love story. It was so easy to get involved with the characters and cheer for both Chester and Eden. They both had their struggles. He was more than giving. She was the reluctant recipient of his help. He never demeaned her or tried to take away her independence. He treated her with the same respect he'd treat any other woman of the ton despite their social differences. She didn't want to shame him or make him lose his social status and it was all on the line if they launched into a relationship. This novel proves that love conquers all. Nothing else matters when you find the right person. It was enchanting and I was drawn into the story. This book earned an easy, easy five stars. I'd give it more if I could. *I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily left a review.

    I absolutely love the magic of this one! Fate brought them together and nothing was going to keep them apart. The moment they met their common sense and ways of doing things went out the window. They definitely had obstacles to get past, but none were like his father. I got giddy when they were told the meaning behind the rose. Then I was holding my breath with his father’s last attempt, but loved that scene and how it played out. I was just beginning to think he had changed when that happened.

At least I wasn’t wrong about her brother in the end even though that scene had me on the edge of my seat. The proposal was one of the best I’ve read. Eden is very different from any of the women Chester could meet. She has a fun collection of pets and stands her ground against anyone. I loved her right away because she didn’t hold back her thoughts about anything. Chester is also very different from the men Eden is used to. He doesn’t bat an eye at her birth and will do anything for her and her mother. He loved to be one step ahead of his father and jumped at the chance put him in his place. I loved in the end how everything worked out for everyone. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review

    This is an great story to show that love is indeed possible when other people and events seem to conspire against this. Eden meets her future love when she crashes into him at the entrance of her local inn. Unfortunately the eggs she was carrying fall, and land as much on him as on the floor. She offers to take him home by way of thanks and meet up with their next disaster when she almost drowns in the little river as her cart crosses over it.

Eden meets her future love when she crashes into him at the entrance of her local inn. Unfortunately the eggs she was carrying fall, and land as much on him as on the floor. She offers to take him home by way of thanks and meet up with their next disaster when she almost drowns in the little river as her cart crosses over it. Add to this that his father the duke is simply not nice and that her brother Simon is thought to be the man who murdered Manchester’s brother ... and he also is not nice, especially to his sister Eden. No, not a likely romance setting. But Collette weaves her tale with aplomb and we do manage to find the HEA that we like in our historical romances. Not only do Manchester and Eden find love together, but our villains show signs of reform. What I call a good ending. This book has humour and angst a plenty and is eminently readable. It is easy to imagine youserlf in the scenes alongside Eden and Manchester, egging them on and wanting to sort out the duke and Simon, for the characters, major and minor are believable. Enjoy!

He finds her very interesting and he discovers she is the illegitimate sister of the man who killed his brother in the duel. They have an accident on the trip to Chester's home and Eden comes close to drowning. Chester insists Eden spend the night at his home - this leads to adventure, humor, fun, romance and eventually a HEA. This was such a "feel good" story and even though it was short, it packed a punch. I loved Chester and Eden and they just fit together perfectly - add some lovable animals and the book had it all for me! I was gifted this ARC and I am so happy to be able to give you my recommendation- read it and you will enjoy yourself immensely!

    Manchester “Chester” Marquis of Sterling has been summoned home, a place he has not been in years, following the death of his brother – an act for which his father, the duke, blames him. Before he can start on his way, he meets Eglantina Eden Aster Haverden and her dog, Mr. Wiggles and mare, Peony. Eden, it turns out, is the illegitimate daughter of the duke’s enemy. After an accident in the rain Eden must spend the night at Chester’s home. The duke does not approve but Chester wins the argument Manchester “Chester” Marquis of Sterling has been summoned home, a place he has not been in years, following the death of his brother – an act for which his father, the duke, blames him.

After an accident in the rain Eden must spend the night at Chester’s home. The duke does not approve but Chester wins the argument. When Eden’s half-brother Simon learns of Eden’s actions, he isn’t happy either and their argument leads to Eden and her mother being tossed from their home. Chester falls for Eden quickly but finds it difficult to convince Eden they are right for each other. But he is patient and is ready to follow his heart. The story has everything you want – romance; angst; a dark, handsome hero; a smart, witty heroine; two nasty family members (not sure who was worse!); and cute animals (Peony, Mr. Wiggles, and Acorn). I thoroughly loved this story!!

    Cameron is one of those talented authors that I follow religiously. If she sneezed on a book, I would probably buy it. Her stories are generally witty, creative and have some spicy romance in them. She generally sets them during the Regency Era - one of my favorite time periods to read about. I think I have read all of her books. A Rose for a Rogue is another winning story. I loved the hero and the heroine. Both have unique personalities.

    I originally read A Rose for A Rogue in a book of rose-themed novellas by various authors. I thought then that this story stuck out as one of the best. I was happy to read it again on its own. The story revolves around two very nice people that like each other from the start. The problem is that there are several people & circumstances that stand in the way of them being able to make a life together. An entertaining story unfolds as they get to know one another & work to overcome each obstacle.

    A Rose for a Rogue by Collette Cameron is the sixth book in the A Waltz with a Rogue series and definitely worth reading. Eden and Chester shouldn't be attracted to each other because of their different standings in society and the ongoing family feud between the two families, but neither of them can seem to help themselves. They enjoy each other's company and want to spend more time together, but Chester's family has other plans that involve his soon-to-be betrothed.
