Rogue in Red Velvet The Emperors of London #1 characters ¾ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Rson can save her from the auction block Alex Vernon walked away from Connie once before when he discovered her engagement Now that her fiancé has betrayed her Lord Ripley doesn't intend to leave her again But Connie. l recently had an ARC of the 5th book of the Emperors of London series by Lynne Connolly Dilemma In Yellow Silk and I loved it so much that I wanted to go back and read the rest of the seriesThe Emperors of London are a bunch of cousins who are all named for famous emperors even the girls have a female version of the name There is Maximilian Julius Marcus Aurelius etc They are all powerful people and they are great friends think CynstersThis is book one and is the story of Alexander Vernon and Constance RattiganI really liked Alexander who is the heir to an Earldom It is refreshing that there isn t a traumatic childhood in his past nor issues with his father mother siblings or cousins He is just a really sweet loving man who is constantly under siege from matchmaking mama s and their daughtersI also liked Constance who is a uiet country widow who had a traumatic first marriage She agrees to an arranged marriage with the man who is the heir to her godparents She certainly feels no passion for him but expects they ll have a peaceful lifeIt is sad that she is already spoken for before she meets Alexander It is even sadder that her betrothed is the villain in the story and he s a real heinous gentleman I can t think of even one redeeming uality he has What he does to Constance is absolutely unforgivableTo me this is a book that begs for an epilogue Much of the last several scenes talked about having children and Constance s fear that she cannot get pregnant An epilogue 6 months or a year out from this story showing her either expecting or having just delivered a child would have been a great addition to the story It would also be nice to see a further update on what happens to the villain It would be nice to hear that he was captured by head hunters and his bones were found strung upside down and covered with honey with his nose in an army ant bed in case you didn t notice I didn t like himSo another complaint in general Why do the books today have so many errors in them This one was so full of them that it sometimes deflected my concentration from the story Simple things like using the wrong pronoun like using his when it should have been her

I ve given this a B at AAR so 35 starsI was initially drawn to Rogue in Red Velvet because of its setting of London in the 1750s which makes a nice change from my regular diet of Regency and Victorian set stories It s the first in a new series from Ms Connolly featuring the so called Emperors of London a group of men all related who are rich and powerful movers and shakers in society Lord Alexander Ripley is young handsome wealthy and thus a prime target for marriage minded young ladies and their eually determined mamas Trying to hide from one particular young woman who can t seem to take no for an answer Alex stumbles into the library of the house he s staying in and meets Mrs Constance Rattigan the goddaughter of Lord Downholland She is eschewing the house party and is currently engaged in seeking out and cataloguing all the documentation she can find which relates to the family s long history and traditions Immediately struck by Connie s good sense and complete lack of artifice Alex offers his help which Connie gratefully accepts some of those books are bloody heavy Connie has noticed Alex before of course but being a widow of advanced years she s twenty eight knows she s never going to be able to do than look Even though she s about to sign the contracts for her betrothal to Jasper Dankworth her godmother s nephew she decides to live a little and enjoy Alex s company for the brief period they can spend together Alex proves to be a good companion kind intelligent and deeply honourable in spite of his rakish reputation with the ladiesTheir brief idyll ends and Alex returns to London on the same day as Connie s soon to be betrothed arrives Connie married for love the first time but things did not work out at all well so she has determined that her second marriage will be for practical reasons Dankworth is young and good looking although known to be a little unsteady Lord and Lady Downholland think that marriage to Connie will settle him down and are keen to promote the match which will also keep their property in the family as they have no children of their own and Connie is the closest thing they have to a daughterThe contracts are signed and a date for the wedding is set Connie travels to London in order to make her own preparations but never reaches her destination Dankworth s need for money has become desperate and he has found himself a bigger prize but breaking his contract with Connie will ruin him So he comes up with a vile plan which will enable him to legally rid himself of any obligations He has Connie drugged abducted and taken to a Covent Garden brothel there to be publicly auctioned off to the highest bidderThis aspect of the plot may seem a little far fetched at first glance but it s true that these sorts of auctions did take place at the time and that the auctioneers were less than scrupulous about the provenance of their goods While Alex is able to find Connie and get her away the fact that she was seen in such a place will ruin her unless he can come up with a plan which will convince society that the very decent and proper Mrs Rattigan could not possibly have been there In order to do this he enlists the help of his cousin Julius the Earl of Winterton one of the leaders of society who will I imagine have his own book at some point as his notice cannot fail to lend conseuence to Connie and make the gossips think twice Alex is also determined to crush Jasper Dankworth for what he did which will have the fortunate side effect of dealing a blow to the entire Dankworth family who it seems is engaged in some age old rivalry with the Emperors I enjoyed the story which moves along at a swift pace and in which the author displays a considerable eye for historical detail in terms of the fashion and customs and especially in her descriptions of the areas of London her characters visit I was especially interested in her exploration of the function of the various Coffee Houses many of which bore names which we still recognise today and which in a way fulfil the same functions such as Lloyds Coffeehouse which sold insurance to cover the many deals made at the Cocoa Tree the house Alex freuents and whose name today is recognised as one of the world s largest purveyors of insuranceAlex is a lovely beta hero who is devoted to Connie from the outset and determined to do whatever he can to help her This determination brings the pair into conflict as Connie feels that Alex is riding roughshod over her concerns and when he fails to consult her about some of the actions he takes against Dankworth but fortunately their falling out is short lived and isn t allowed to fester until it is blown out of all proportionConnie too is a very likeable character and she and Alex have great chemistry although I think her determination to refuse his offer of marriage is a little too drawn out When he first proposes she is still legally bound by her contract with Dankworth so I can understand her refusal at that point But once she s free she employs the I m not good enough for you so I won t marry you for your own good argument which is one I just don t like I see her reasoning and can understand why she d think that but it didn t work for me and that together with the fact that the ending seems rushed is the main reason my final rating is a B and not higherI was also a little confused as to the reasons behind the feud between the Dankworths and the Emperors as it was never fully explained And even though I know Ms Connolly is an author who pays a great deal of attention to research and historical detail there were times when I found the tone to be a little too modern But neither of those things detracted from my enjoyment of the story which is enjoyable and well written Rogue in Red Velvet is a good start to what promises to be an entertaining series and I will certainly be looking out for the next book when it s released in October
