The Seldons and Dales have been mortal enemies for centuries, but that hasn't stopped the roguish Crispin, Viscount Dale and the impetuous Lady Henrietta Seldon from waging their own battle … of the heart. Every stray glance, every chance encounter threatens to reveal the secret passion that keeps drawing them together.

But finally after years of flirting with disaster, Crispin and Henrietta find themselves locked in a wine cellar, and now there is no denying the love and loyalties that have lured them and torn them apart time and time again. Will this one last chance, this tempting night of desire be the one that ignites a fire that will never be extinguished, no matter the price?

My Review
This is just a quickie review, especially considering that this book took me about 45 minutes to read. I knew it wouldn't take very long to read, so I just read it last night right before I went to bed. Have You Any Rogues is a very interesting take on a "Romeo and Juliet" theme.  The majority of the book involves flashbacks, and sometimes I didn't mind, but others I got a bit frustrated with it a bit. I am not a huge fan of flashbacks, but I did understand by the end why the author put all the flashbacks in. The characters were interesting, through the flashbacks you see how they almost get their HEA but something disrupts their trust in each other, and boy this heroine got married quite a bit. I did enjoy the ending and the reconciliation between them. I do love the theme of the most recent series by this author. It had a charming quality to the story, and I loved the way the story turned out. I do plan on reading more of this author, because I am fascinated with her writing style. Even though it had a couple aspects to the story I didn't like so much, overall a fun romance that will wet your appetite.
