Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dot-com entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband - first his work, and then his never-ending quest for fun kept him constantly on the move, far away from Maxine and his family. For five years, Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyle - dating a succession of beautiful, famous, and very young women - while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a world-renowned expert on childhood trauma and adolescent suicide. Then everything changes…. For Maxine, it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not - mature, grounded, and present. For Blake, it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes, and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter. Now, Blake wants Maxine in his life again - as a partner in a humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For Maxine, the choice is clear. But Blake’s sudden transformation - from carefree playboy to compassionate, responsible grown-up - raises questions she’s never managed to answer…and some she’s afraid to ask. After all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life, about to marry Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, a.k.a. the Rogue, is a man capable of doing anything - except change…. An unforgettable story of two people pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is a journey of choices and the amazing opportunities that come together - just when life seems to have been successfully rearranged at last.

    " Just read in July. Makes you really believe in true love:). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beve | 1/30/2014

    " Very easy and light read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christie | 1/30/2014

    " It has been years since I have read a Danielle Steel novel, and I knew I probably wouldn't like it, but decided to read it anyway. It was okay - not really a style of writing that I enjoy. Her books get read so often in my libraries, that I thought I'd give this new book a try. I've learned my lesson... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cjax102310 | 1/20/2014

    " Eh...I liked the ending but not that great as a whole. Just ok for me. This is the first Danielle Steel book I've read. I didn't like the way the characters were presented. I never felt like I "was there". She also seems to repeat herself a lot which I don't like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/13/2014

    " A light read that is typical Danielle Steele. A nice read when your world seems overwhelming. Danielle shows that some people can change. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Yoder | 1/4/2014

    " ok kept me reading til the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal McFarland | 12/5/2013

    " good story, slow start -little repetitive but picked up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 12/4/2013

    " A good quick read. But for such a strong woman, why, oh why did she stick with Charles. He was a total ass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pianogal | 11/26/2013

    " Good read, predictable ending, but not bad for escapist fiction. If I wanted something that was stressful, I'd watch the stock market or try to find gas somewhere. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 SenoraG | 11/15/2013

    " Twenty pages in I remembered why I stopped reading Danielle Steel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Solkon | 5/24/2013

    " This is a good beach book...I liked it. As are most of her books, it was a fast read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marynelson321 | 4/4/2013

    " Loved the spice and variety! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Loretta | 1/29/2013

    " A rather bland novel from Steel. Everyone is just to perfect, to noble and to rich. A very predictible ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/16/2012

    " I liked this book but I hated Charles she was stupid for putting up with him for so long "

    " Good story with a great ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Barry | 10/15/2012

    " I bought this book last weekend on Saturday afternoon and I saw out on my hammock and read the whole book in just a few hours. It was very hard to put it down at all. Very interesting and a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 7/20/2012

    " I haven't read one of her books in awhile so I gave it a try. Wasn't bad it kept me entertained. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Audrey Fitzgerald | 7/11/2012

    " Very typical Danielle Steel.....a good quick read.....but really nothing over the top. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenetta | 5/11/2012

    " This was not one of my favorite danielle steel books, It was a slow book, and it was pretty obvious how it would end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aileen | 1/15/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Unterbrink | 11/11/2011

    " Very predictable ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stasha | 6/7/2011

    " Not the best of Danielle Steel in my opinion, but nice to read all the same. I didn't really like the ending though. It felt like it was rushed and unrealistic. I know it is fiction, but still I think the ending could have been developed more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Afnan | 5/27/2011

    " everything is fine..
    but the end was disappointed !

    blake character cannot change only in 2 weeks

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 5/17/2011

    " Another good book by Steele. Relationships that are broken as people mature, or not; and then the possibilities. Enjoyed the fact there was depth in the long term relationship and not arguing and friction. Maybe not too realistic as to what happens in the real world but I read for enjoyment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 The | 5/15/2011

    " Predictable and boring - I should have known better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camandwmm | 5/8/2011

    " Good title for this book. Blake really was a rogue. Interesting story of Maxine and Blake and their children. They had an unusually friendly divorce. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 4/28/2011

    " It was adorable and I loved the characters progressions and evolutions within the story. It was a beautiful novel and I loved it. It was different from what I usually do read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/14/2011

    " Another good, light-hearted, easy read by Danielle Steel. I listened to this as an audio book while moving, and it made the drive easier. I enjoyed this book, but I would recommend both Legacy and HRM, both by Danielle Steel, over Rouge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/6/2011

    " Fun. I hated the fiancee. More children? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolee | 1/29/2011

    " light/easy/quick read -- great for a 4hour flight!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/4/2010

    " Somewhat predictable; typical Steel book. I did like the fact that the female character was such a strong personality. The setting was completely out of the realm of how I live, and I sometimes thought the children acted like brats, but overall I wanted to keep reading to see how it would end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth | 9/26/2010

    " Couldn't finish it. I found it to be too repetitive, going over points of the characters' backstories multiple times. Thought her writing style was too wordy. I really couldn't care about the characters enough and thought it best to put the book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aileen | 9/5/2010

    " haven't read her books in a while......now I know why.....very predictable.....okay story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patti | 9/3/2010

    " Just a little mindless read. Sometimes I need that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elsie | 8/22/2010

    " Typical Steel but still a fun read. "
