Rogue Most Wanted by Janna MacGregor
Guest review by Tanya Kaanta for Love Books Group
Rogue most wanted is the fifth book in the Cavensham Heiresses series and I’m still as smitten with this one as I was when Ms. MacGregor started the series.
This is a story for all you lovers of historical romance. I’m a sucker for good historical romance and Janna MacGregor always delivers. With this instalment, we have two reluctant leads who wish nothing of marriage and falling in love. Only our heroine has been forced to marry in order to keep her estate. And our hero has been tasked with helping her prepare for the season and the Ton.
Enter Theodora Worth and William Cavensham. Two individuals so perfect for one another, yet stubborn to the core of their beliefs. That love is not in the cards. For Thea, she knows nothing of being a lady in society, having been raised by her grandfather. And Lord William, the Cavensham brother who loves so deeply and deserves love yet fears it due to a past rejection of his youth.
Alas, Janna MacGregor is so talented at creating characters I root for and believe in, I’m immediately drawn to Thea and William. They are real, flawed, yet passionate. And when they finally realize they love one another, the connection is bliss.
The Premise: Lord William Cavensham knows the men in his family fall in love fast. And when he is just out of university, he believes himself in love, proposes, and is rejected. Thus, begins his faulty belief he’ll never find love again. Since he lost his opportunity.
Fast-forward several years and we have Theodora Worth. She’s an heiress who needs to wed in order to keep her estate. When her next-door neighbour agrees to play matchmaker (as she needs all the help she can get), she doesn’t realize her neighbor has her very own nephew in mind. Yes, Lord William. Only he is determined to never fall in love again.
Rogue Most Wanted is a page-turner and I finished the story in one sitting. It has all the ingredients I look for in a historical romance: witty writing, likeable characters that develop from the beginning to the end, the chemistry between the leads, and an interesting spin on the plot. I’m addicted to the Cavenshams and cannot wait for the next in the series.
