Rouge Blog Tour and Giveaway

Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.

Freddie Lovel, Hale's wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau's, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.

Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.


Rouge is a charming, angsty read. I enjoyed Moore's writing and really liked the setting! I am usually not one to read historical, but the time period was not overpowering. It was a light easy read with just enough spicy scenes to make delectable. The story did end on a cliffhanger, and I thought it could've been a bit longer.

Cover and Writing
I really like the cover to this book. I think it suits the time period and the subject matter of the book, and it's just all over pretty! The writing was in the first person from Hale's POV. The thing I liked the most about Moore's writing, was that the story was the focus was on Hale and didn't swarm you with useless historical information. I was a bit worried when I picked this book up.

Main Character
I liked Hale, she was a normal 18 year old growing up in a cabaret theater. She puts Teeny's happiness and welfare above her own and to me that's admirable.

Swoonworthy Points: 7.5
There were some very swoonworthy moments between Beau and Hale.. some steamy and some angsty. I think the angst outweighed the swoon, thus making the swoon factor go down a bit for me. There was a bit of a triangle, though Hale was not confused on whom she wanted to be with, but choose who she had to be with to protect her friend. 

All in all, Rouge was a good read and I would recommend it.
