      • Kelly Bowen

        Kelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada She worked her way through her teenage years as a back country trail guide and ranch hand She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology.But it was Kelly s infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields.Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.


    1. 4.5 starsWhen William Somerhall, Duke of Worth realises his mother s eccentricities are getting out of hand and her household is in uproar, he decides to take matters into his own hands Firstly, by moving into the dower house with her And then proceeding to straighten out her finances, her staff and her reputation.For Jenna Hughes, companion to the Dowager Duchess of Worth, this could be just about the worst news possible Both she and the duchess are, unbeknown to the duke, involved in business [...]

    2. I ve given this a B at AAR, so that s 4.5 starsI was only a few pages into A Good Rogue is Hard to Find when it became clear that in Kelly Bowen, I d found a new author worth watching Most of the d buts and follow ups I ve read over the past couple of years have been average at best, but this, Ms Bowen s second book, is a very accomplished piece of work It s full of warmth, humour and intelligence, the characters are likeable and well rounded and the author has managed to find an unusual plotlin [...]

    3. This was a re read, but my first review for the book And I loved it just as much the second time around The heroine, Jenna, is marvellous Intelligent, independent, resourceful beautiful and idealistic, she is running a campaign together with the Dowager Duchess the hero s mum to recover money owed by aristocrats to impoverished tradespeople The hero Will a duke, of course , is wonderful attractive, compassionate and struggling to find some point to his title, and indeed, to his life.There were m [...]

    4. 3.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.William is a high ranking duke who finds all the trappings that come along with the title annoying than enjoyable All he wants to do is be left alone to ride, breed, and race his horses but when talk about his mother s eccentrics starts to get louder, he decides it s time to assert his presence Jenna is his mother s companion and the mysterious captivat [...]

    5. Emotionally compelling Well balanced between details, story and character development This was a lovely read from beginning to end In every story I have read of Bowen s thus far, the beginning has grabbed me right away This one actually had a page or two of something normal Just two guys, lamenting their lofty lot in life, the Duke reluctantly deciding he must tardily go to his mother s dinner party Enter mayhem.The reader gets to experience the understanding and unfolding of said mayhem with ou [...]

    6. This is what I call and wonderful, wonderful historical romance And intelligent heroine and an intelligent but utterly confused hero What a couple Yeahh I love how Ms Bowen writes and her dialogues are amazing Jenna is fantastic It s abvious since the previous book that she and the Dowager Duchess are keeping big secrets The opening of the story is hilarious with the hero, Will, eavesdropping a conversation between them and understanding all the contrary of they we talking about While trying to [...]

    7. There must be something seriously wrong with me to give 3 stars to a book Jill recommended Bravo to this author for writing about strong women that outshine the hero You won t find that easily Also, her books are very interesting from a historical perspective, depicting the harsh life conditions of women and the poor in the Victorian England and the blissful ignorance and neglect of the aristocracy The romance, however, once didn t pull me in Honestly, it was the last thing I cared about when r [...]

    8. 4 1 2 stars rounded down to 4 stars, because Jenna s past and present behavior and Will s somewhat easy acceptance of it didn t feel historically right to me

    9. A really fun read with zany antics that ended up being a front for serious goings on I am going back to pick up the first book and read the 3rd one right now.

    10. Originally Reviewed For Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyWhat a total delight or was it Kelly Bowen really delivered an amazing book Something I surely didn t see coming A Good Rogue is Hard to Find is book two in her Lords of Worth Series and I found myself totally captivated Ms Bowen pulled a complete and total sleight of hand on us and instead of a light hearted romp through regency England, we are delivered a daring report of acceptance, desire, revenge the good kind and yes redempti [...]

    11. Foolishly Jenna had thought herself happy these past years, doing what she was good at, surrounded by people she liked And she had been content But now she knew something had always been missing A hole that had been torn in the fabric of her life years ago had been, for a time, mended Damn this man and his beautiful heart Damn the circumstances that were forcing her to let go of something she hadn t known she wanted until it was too late I can t believe this book was even better than the first o [...]

    12. The Duchess nearly steals the show in this one but Jenna is a very admirable character and I couldn t help but smile at her sly ways of obtaining her goals and finding her purpose William is one of those men you just want to hold and of course the history with his father is sad especially since it caused a chasm between himself and the Duchess But, Jenna s gentle involvement in that relationship helps to bring the two closer William and Jenna are not only sizzling hot as a couple but also make a [...]

    13. I won an ARC of this book and loved it I do not write plot spoilers but will say it was well written and original You do not have to have read the first book of this series I ve got My Duke to Keep Me Warm to enjoy this one, but it may help explain the hero s mother, the Dowager Duchess and her chickens The Dowager is one of my favorite characters ever Will and Jenna Hh are interesting, complicated and you will root for them This book is out April 28 and I highly recommend it I look forward to s [...]

    14. 3.5 starsThe author definitely has potential, it was a humorous, enjoyable if ultimately forgettable read certain plot points strain credulity and the characters could have been fleshed out and well rounded, I will however be trying this author in the future

    15. I enjoyed this, my first book by Kelly Bowen It was a tad over the top and fanciful but all in good humour and the characters were quite loveable and appealing.

    16. updated I LOVED this book and I LOVE this author Miss Jenna Hughes has an alter ego A Robin Hood ette sort of ego And her partner in crime is none other than Eleanor, the Dowager Duchess of Worth You see, these two women head an amazing historical Ocean s Eleven type horse racing heist where they swindle from the rich and give back to the poor The poor, in this instance, being the shopkeepers who have been reduced to bankruptcy when the ton decides they are above the law to pay for services alre [...]

    17. I am very sad to say that I did not finish this book I struggled getting into it and dragged myself through about 25% of the book before I gave up entirely The reason There is too much intentional deception going on, albeit the deception is well meant and it is to serve a greater good.You see, Jenna and Worth s mother are in cahoots when it comes to swindling the rich to pay the poor, a very Robin Hood esque scenario I have no problem with what they are doing What I have a problem with is what t [...]

    18. The one thing I continue to love most about Kelly Bowen s heroes and heroines is their inherent goodness and drive to do what s right in an often morally grey world It makes for poignant storytelling and heartfelt romances.And while I didn t feel as strongly about this book as I did its predecessor, I still liked it quite a lot, most notably Jenna and Lady Worth and their crusade of dishing out vigilante justice to the corrupt elite Even failwhale Will held a certain charming appeal and most imp [...]

    19. Yes, yes, I know the book was making a point about economic and political inequality but the Dowager Duchess with her razor sharp mind and outrageous masquerade, pulling a Scarlet Pimpernel over the whole of the Ton, stole the show Her ducal son Will and her companion in crime Miss Hughes also are a great couple as they dance around each other, no pretense of denials, both admitting immediately there is an attraction, with most of the obstruction coming from our heroine taking a reasonable amoun [...]

    20. It did take me a bit to get into it All of the mystery was a bit annoying through at least 1 2 the book There is a really sad thing that I could have went without The cause they champion was interesting and a good topic to explore.

    21. Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.I saw this book on NetGalley and I went to elementary school with a girl whose last name was Bowen Just in case this was her writing under a pseudonym, I thought I should try this book Once I started reading it, certain names seemed familiar So when I looked it up on and saw that this was Book 2 in a series and that I had loved Book 1, I was thrilled that it would continue to be a good book but admittedly, a bit disappointed that my long lost s [...]

    22. 3.5 StarsA Good Rogue is Hard to Find is the second book in the Lords of Worth series, but can easily be read as a stand alone It features William, Somerhall, Duke of Worth, who is pretty happy with his life except for the rumors that his mother is losing her mind He is very protective of his reputation so, after a hilarious visit to her dower house, he decides he is moving in to keep her from ruining her good name But, he is thrown off when he meets her paid companion, Jenna, who is helping his [...]

    23. Like with I ve Got My Duke to Keep Me Warm, the first book in the Lords of Worth series, A Good Rogue Is Hard to Find had me instantly wanting the next book Sidenote thus began the eternal dilemma ebook or paperback For once, the latter was cheaper than the ebook, but I really want the ebook WHY Now I don t have the book either way because DECISIONS ARE HARD But man The first half of this book practically had me snorting with laughter Will s mom, who we meet in the first book, purposely cultivat [...]

    24. I confess some of the happenings went into unbelievable territory, but in this case, it works A Good Rogue is Hard to Find is a book with a lot of heart The first half was a laugh riot as the heroine, Jenna helped by the Dowager Duchess struggle to keep the full extent of their operations undercover The ensemble staff consisting of a thief turned butler and an explosives expert accountant were great fun to read With careful planning, manufactured deception and hilarious explanations, the troupe [...]

    25. I really enjoyed this book, despite a somewhat rocky start Likes This is the first HR centered around horseracing that I actually liked I m not sure what made it different, but I think the story is well written My favorite thing is the duchess eccentricity, simply because it leads to a well executed con There were times when I didn t really get the need for her weirdness, but in the end it all made sense I also enjoyed the characters All in all, KB is a talented author.Dislikes I agree with some [...]

    26. Despite the fact that Kelly didn t lean in hard on the Luke Will crush that I would have LOVED I mean, I guess I know why, you can t have the hero s attention get split, but Will s reaction to Luke was GREAT , I really loved this Kelly Bowen is fantastic, and totally one of my favorite authors by now.
