Once a Rebel by Mary Jo Putney

Once a Rebel (Rogues Redeemed, #2)

*I received an ARC copy from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for. Expected publication date is August 29, 2017.

Book two in the Rogues Redeemed series. Lord George (or Gordon as he prefers) is a member of the group of men that were trapped together in the Spanish prison waiting to die. After their escape they all swore to reform and so far each has in their own way. Gordon is hired to travel to America during the war of 1812 in order to locate and save a widow who's family is concerned. What he has no way of knowing is that the widow is his long lost childhood friend that he has been searching for for quite some time. Callie was told that he was dead so when he shows up (just in time to save her from some British soldiers) she is in shock to find he is alive. As they travel together to reach her family and decide how to proceed from this point on they get to know one another again which is how they find out they really always loved each other even if they did not know it. I have to admit this book was quite fun. It involved English characters as usual but the bulk of the book takes place on American soil which is a nice change of place even if there is a war going on. The two have to tackle quite a few obstacles together which just serve to reinforce their relationship. I highly recommend this book to fans of historical romance because Putney has written an excellent novel yet again. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
