About the Book

New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan begins the all new The Duke Hunt series with the illegitimate son of a duke who meets his match in the daring daughter of a vicar. 

The Bastard Rogue...  

Peregrine Butler’s privileged blue-blooded world is rocked to the core when it is revealed he was born before his parents’ marriage and therefore is not the legal heir to the dukedom. Facing ruin, Perry must use his charm and good looks to win an heiress—all the while ignoring his fascination with the one interfering and alluring chit who is intent on sabotaging his efforts.  


The Lady Vicar...  

Everyone knows Imogen Bates, the virtuous daughter of the senile vicar. She can write a sermon in a day and spot a rogue in a second, so she sees right through Perry’s seductive façade. But Imogen’s plan to protect the heiresses of her beloved Shropshire from the erstwhile Duke of Penning, the bane of her existence since childhood, soon turns into something altogether unacceptable for the proper lady … who suddenly finds herself longing to keep his heated glances and tempting kisses all to herself.  

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Deliciously sexy!”  - Sarah MacLean

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that the young lady everyone assumes is mousy has uncharted depths...particularly when there’s a scientific sister, an aphrodisiac, and the stepbrother of a duke around. Creative, unique, and racy—this story is not unlike the very elixir around which it is based.”  - Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author, on The Virgin and the Rogue 

“The sixth in the Rogue Files series is a lusty reversal of the rake-and-the-wallflower trope. A refreshing dose of fun—and the best in the series.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Virgin and the Rogue

“A powerful aphrodisiac drives the smoldering sixth Regency in Jordan’s Rogue Files series....This erotically charged historical romance packs a passionate punch.”   - Publishers Weekly on The Virgin and the Rogue

“A steamy romance full of surprises.”  - Fresh Fiction on The Virgin and the Rogue

“A surfeit of humor, a zippy pace, and a cast of well-defined and intriguing protagonists make this a delicious late-summer read.” - Library Journal
