The rogue is back in town - Anna Bennett

Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…Lord Samuel Travis is back.
―The London Hearsay, special society edition

Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.

Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?

As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?

My thoughts:
I guess a rogue needs love too. Mostly the rogues are lords or earls, here he is a second son with no money. What a wastrel.

Juliette lives with her uncle. In the two previous books her sisters found love, now she is alone and her uncle wants her to marry too. And he does seem to be loosing his marbles, like there were any left.
But I like Juliette, even if she fancies this guy who ugh, you will see.

Sam is the rogue. And yes he is a rogue. There is this incident with someone's aunt and, oh man, Sam! You need some direction in your life.

They meet when he is sent to throw her out of her home. But he stays, they talk, they flirt, they fall for each other. There is some drama with the brother that wants her out of the house of course. Other than that it is a story of these two, and about uncle Alistair. I do like him.

Conclusion:
A fun story.
