Redeeming the Rogue Knight by Elisabeth Hobbes

Redeeming the Rogue Knight by Elisabeth Hobbes. This is the second book in the The Danby Brothers series. I wasn’t sure about this book because I’ve read about Sir Roger Danby in The Blacksmith’s Wife, the first book in the series, in which Roger is not exactly presented as a wonderful person. Thinking that I liked both the Blacksmith’s Wife and A Wager for the Widow by Elisabeth, I thought I will read this one too. That was such a great idea because this one was even better than the first two.

Redeeming the Rogue Knight by Elisabeth Hobbes

In this story, Sir Roger asks Lucy Carew to shelter him at her inn. She gives him refuge, despite being a single mother. In the previous book he was a villain and I didn’t like him at all. In this book she doesn’t make him an amazing hero who was previously misunderstood . Elisabeth gives the character depth and that makes the story realistic. The heroine is not exactly innocent either and her problems make him realise the pain he caused others.

I loved this book. Her problems are so real and so wonderfully shown. His struggles are just as raw as hers. They both evolve. Of course, the book has a happy ending, but the idea of him still needing to prove his worth is obvious on the last page.

Now I’m eager to read the other books Elisabeth wrote.

  • I do love it when the heroes are flawed and multi-dimensional, makes it more realistic. I was wondering what that metal object was next to the book, until I found it out at the end of your review. That’s a cool detail.
