All Men Are Rogues tells the romantic story of Evelyn Amherst, a woman who has vowed to stay single and is the daughter of a government spy, and Lord Justin Barclay, a man so henpecked by his mother that he is ineffectual despite being an agent himself. Evelynís father is murdered and she comes to London to retrieve her inheritance. Lord Justin is put on the case of finding out if she had any involvement with her fatherís business, since her father is now suspected of being a spy.

Curled Up With a Good BookIn order to win Evelynís confidence and fulfill his mission, Lord Justin begins wooing her - much to the chagrin of his mother (whom Evelyn describes as a "dragon lady"). It turns out that all Lord Justin needed was to spend some time with someone who had a little backbone (i.e. Evelyn) in order to develop a backbone for himself. After spending some quality time with Evelyn, Lord Justin banishes his mother from his home.

The plot is interesting enough to keep readers guessing about who the real bad guys are, and it proceeds logically by use of dropped clues as to who did what when. The character descriptions are skillful if just a touch overdone. Thank goodness, Robins did not try to fit in one more description of how gorgeous Lord Justin is. Her skill with the love scenes is obvious as she manages to make them passionate without being silly or smutty.

If you like a good romance novel with some spy intrigue thrown in, you will like All Men Are Rogues. Happy reading.
