About the Book
Title: My Enchanting Hoyden (Once Upon a Rogue Series #3)
Author: Julie Johnstone
Release Date: August 3, 2015
Genre: Historical Romance, Regency
A bargain born of desperation ignites into passion as one lord’s quest to save his family leads to the discovery that he can never settle for less than love.
Forsaken, abandoned, and duped, Miss Jemma Adair has no other recourse but to request her grandfather’s help to avoid living on the streets. His asking price? She must marry a neighboring lord’s odious son. Thankfully, there is a way out of her dilemma—ensuring the rake never asks for her hand. But what is Jemma to do when her ally is an all-too handsome silver-tongued lord with a penchant for poetry that makes her question giving her heart to another man?
Philip De Vere, Lord Harthorne, wishes to marry for love, but inherited debt and family obligations force him to seek a wealthy wife. Yet experience has taught him that ladies of the ton prefer rogues to gentlemen with a poet’s soul. But when an unrepentant hoyden claims to know a thing or two about how to make a man a rake, Philip finds he cannot resist Jemma’s offer or her.
This book was amazing and I think Julie is one of the #1 authors of the Regency Romance genre.
I loved the characters with their witty banter, the way the story flowed and how things were perfectly strung together to make a perfect romance. It was thrilling and addictive; a roller coaster ride that kept me going up and down and flipping sideways but it was in a good way.
Author Julie Johnstone’s books are number one for a reason and a force to be reckoned with. I loved the cover of the novel as well; she was always so mischievous which showed on the cover of this novel which fit the heroine perfectly.
“My Enchanting Hoyden” was unique, tender, romantic, and I tell you what, the hero made you want to swoon. But, I really did love that this novel was not the same old Regency spill. There were scenes and words in there that you don’t read about frequently, and it made this read that much more entertaining.
You just can’t go wrong with a Julie Johnstone novel. I am awaiting in pure anticipation for the next installment in the “Once Upon a Rogue” Series. This is only the third one and I am already addicted. I would recommend this to friends, family. and strangers. So thank you once again for bringing us something charming and spectacular to read, Julie. You are one of a kind!

About the Author
Author Julie Johnstone first fell in love with romance fifteen years ago when she picked up her first romance novel in an airport gift shop on the way to Conroe, Texas for a family reunion and spent her whole weekend reading rather than water skiing, which up until then was one of her favorite things to do.
Julie is staying up way too late and typing furiously on her keyboard to finish her next book or blog with her fellow authors at Ladyscribes. Julie is married to an amazing lawyer and when she is not running her two precocious children to one activity or another she is trying to eek out some time to stay in shape and see her dearest friends.
