Rogue Most Wanted by Janna MacGregor ~ a Review

by MK French

Lady Theodora Worth had spent the last seven years caring for her ailing grandfather, even after he couldn't remember who she was anymore. With her grandfather's death, she inherited her home of Ladykyrk as well as the earldom that came with it, but another duke is challenging her claim to the title and lands. Her good neighbor's nephew, Lord William Cavensham, is willing to be her friend and help her through the legal process, including possibly marrying to cement her suitability for a title. The proximity only keeps reminding them how perfect they are for each other, even though neither wanted to marry.

Rogue Most Wanted is the fifth of the Cavensham Heiresses books in the series, but you don't necessarily have to read the prior two novels to understand this one. (Others in the series include The Good, The Bad, and the Duke, my review, and The Luck of the Bride, my review) Some of the characters are mentioned, since it's an extended family, but all that is necessary to know is that the Cavensham family is known for its marriages based on love, not just money and titles.

Both Thea and Will care more about others on the properties and for extended families than propriety, which puts Thea at a disadvantage. The newspapers love to poke fun at the Cavensham family, particularly Will, so Thea by extension also is the source of terrible gossip. She doesn't have the social skin for it and lacks a family of her own without her grandfather. While the title seems to paint Will as a rogue, he's hardly an emotionless man bent on seducing women for his amusement. He avoids marriage because his heart had been broken at nineteen, and instead has poured his energy into helping his family maintain properties and helping the tenants. It's a given that the two are not only friends but develop romantic feelings for each other, and that there are obstacles in the way. Being a romance novel, we get our happily ever after in the form of a last minute save. I almost don't mind that because the two of them certainly deserve happiness, and absolutely deserve each other.
