    DNF - two chapters in and so many historical errors I couldn't read on any longer, not sure whether to scream or laugh at the shoddy editing and lack of research done into the period. Not only that, the reactions of both heroine and the 'supposed' hero made it impossible for me to feel for either of them.

    Good Fun! What a fine way to spend an indolent Sunday afternoon! Horses, spunky heroine, handsome but embittered hero — all ending happily ever after.

Her father, Lord Albright the new Earl of Fairland must sell the stallion to pay a debt to Baron Wadsworth. The Fairland steward, a Mr Lanks is in league with Baron Wadsworth to cheat the Albrights of Fairland. Elle loves horses and rides them astride and trains them. She dresses in boys clothes and takes on the freedom of a man. She has a temper and when her father has to auction off Manifesto Elle decides to steal him back, sell her Mother's pearls and buy the horse back. Lord Hugh Davenport. the Earl of Buxburton is cold to all highborn ladies. When he learns of the auction of Manifesto he decides to buy her and tells Lady Elle at a ball when he meets her. She is determined to not let that happen. She dresses in her cousin's pants and shirt and jumps on the horse on Hugh's final bid. Elle steals Manifesto from Hugh and he races after her. When he catches her the Earl spanks her, thinking her a boy. He believes her to be a wayward boy, who needs discipline. She tells him nobody can ride or train Manifesto but her. He tries to take the horse himself and sees, after a great struggle it is the truth. Still thinking she is a boy, as she claims to be her cousin, Toby Coppersmith, Hugh hires her to train Manifesto and help him get the horse's favor too. She has no intention of helping. Her main concern is getting her dearest horse back into her hands. Hugh sees her bathing in the horses st abelieve his eyes. He is a she and a beautiful woman. He can't get her out of his mind and sees her as a lowly stable hand. He sets out to seduce her. Elle has never had feelings for a man before and Hugh gives her a merry chase. There is more, much more but that is a surprise for readers. Thus is a delightful Regency tale of a love for a beautiful horse, a man and a courageous woman who will not condescend to men's dictates. She goes against all norms for her horse, her home and her family. She is willful, talented and temperamental but on the whole you are routing for her with all your heart. Hugh has a very heartbreaking tale too of being hurt and deceived by all women, even his mom. This story will have you cheering, crying, and laughing. It is a page turner. I give it Five stars out of Five, as one of my all time favorite regency stories. By Linda Hays-Gibbs

    I just finished this book and I really enjoyed it. I haven't read much Regency Romance type literature but picked this up to check out for a friend and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a good plot with lots of twists and turns that were both funny and dramatic. I'm looking forward to the other books in the series. I have read that there are four other books but have yet to find one. I just finished this book and I really enjoyed it.

    A Rogue in Sheep's Clothing by Elf Ahearn is book one in the Albright Sister series. Ellie is the first sister to have her story told. I have to say I adored Ellie, she funny, independent, spunky, smart, charismatic, and has no problem going against the rules of high society to do what makes her happy and helps her family. She loves horses and is very good with them. I too love horses so I enjoyed reading about their training and racing.

She loves horses and is very good with them. I too love horses so I enjoyed reading about their training and racing. I admired this girl for the lengths she would go through to help her family. She does a lot of things in order to protect her family and their home. Ellie is quite the brave young lady. Ellie's relationship with Hugh Davenport is complicated to say the least. I had such fun reading the scenes between these two, they have a chemistry that is all their own. Hugh Davenport has issues from his past that complicate his relationship with Ellie. These two have a few obstacles to over come in order to find their way together. There is a lot of drama and mystery that unfolds during Huge & Ellie's story. It kept me turning pages to see what was going to happen next. I'm anxious to read the other Albright sisters' stories, I will be looking forward to see what Elf Ahearn has in store for Ellie's sisters. If you enjoy a historical romance with some mystery and drama thrown in the mix, I think you will like this one.

    It feels like I haven't read a great historical romance novel in ages. I'm so glad I read this book, especially since it's not the typical historical romance. Don't let the lovely cover fool you. The story had a more Gothic feel to it. I read this book in no time. I was caught up in Ellie's escapades.

I'm so glad I read this book, especially since it's not the typical historical romance. Don't let the lovely cover fool you. The story had a more Gothic feel to it. I read this book in no time. I was caught up in Ellie's escapades. I liked that she was proactive when things seemed wrong at her house and she was willing to go to extreme lengths to get back her beloved horse. There were moments when I laughed, cringed, was worried and anxious. There were almost moments when I needed to fan myself, because they were so hot! I was a more than a little amazed by Hugh and his incapability to see Ellie behind her costume when he professed to love the stable girl version of her so much. I also really liked the suspense/mystery aspect of the story even though it wasn't very clear why Ellie's family was targeted. I'm guessing the mystery will be spread out over the remaining books in the series. This book is sort of reminiscent of Gothic novelist Victoria Holt. If you're a fan of romances with twists, then this book is for you. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the The Albright Sisters series. I can't wait to see what Elf Ahearn does!

    Her father wishes to sell Ellie's horse to settle the family's debts. She is distraught. She dresses as a boy to tend the horse when it is sent to Hugh Davenport's estate. I was quickly rooting for both characters. They were believable. What I did not like was the "gaps" in reasoning and story telling. For example, when they transfer to the house party, Ellie is not recognized by Hugh. And why does Ellie (as the horse trainer) wear a cravat? Would she not be dressed more in the form of a groom?

There are modern terms that jump off the page at the reader. "cartel," "napkin," and the medical terms The couple "processed down the aisle." ??????? What happens to Baron Wadsworth? How is the villain disposed of? How would a couple in that period win £210,000 at a horse race? Did Lady Davenport and Captain Chase Hunt get together? (Likely this would be handled in one of the other books in the series, but as this is the only book available, it leaves the reader wondering what next.)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was enjoyable if not taken seriously. The characters and dialogue were thoroughly modern American, even with a couple of regency era phrases and mentions of Napoleon scattered in. An American can't easily mimic that certain ineffable sense of propriety and class of that time period, and this novel was sometimes jarring in that regard. The worst thing, that made it laughably silly, was the 'Clark Kent' disguise of the heroine. I nearly stopped reading then, but decided to just laugh about it i It was enjoyable if not taken seriously.

The hero seriously can't see the woman he's in love with is also the woman staying in his house, but wearing glasses?!? There was a little too much sexual action for my tastes, too. I liked the title, though.

    This was one of those historical romances I could't turn the pages fast enough. From start to finish, this story was jam-packed with fabulous humor, conflict enough to make me want to tear my hair out, and brilliantly written scenes. The wonderfully developed plot was just icing on this already delicious cake. Delightfully witty dialogue, incorrigible and heartwarming characters, and slimy villains you had to loath, all added even more wonderful dimensions to this tale of love almost lost.

    Could not finish! The antics between the characters could be quite hilarious if the writing were better. I can't put my finger on what plagues this book, but I just couldn't take any more of it after 55%. Could not finish!

    Action-packed and brimming with conflict and witty word play, A Rogue in Sheep's Clothing is a fun Regency romance, and a worthy opening to Ms. Ahearn's The Albright Sisters series.

    Good Book This book has a bit of a different twist to it. At times I was shocked at how judgmental some of the people were. Other times I had to laugh at the humor.
