I've given this an A- at AAR; I suppose that's technically 4.5 stars, but this feels closer to a 5 star than 4.5, so I've rounded up.

I Loved a Rogue
is the final book in Ms Ashe’s Prince Catchers trilogy, and it’s a fabulous end to what has been a very enjoyable series. One of the things I’ve very much appreciated about these books is the way each of them has a different ‘feel’ which is specifically related to the personalities of the three heroines.

I mean, it was okay I guess but mostly I found it boooooooring.

I was in the mood for some romance and instead I got:
-two people that never talk about their feelings
-that keep smooching each other
-while he keeps leaving her
-and she keeps pining
-and they both wonder WTF is going on (yeah, me too dudes)
-while some secret family mystery is sort of being solved
-and nothing is resolved until like the last 15% of the book
-which is when the romance finally happens

I loved a Rogue by Katherine Ashe is a 2015 Avon publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in the Prince Catchers series. It can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading the series in order.

This is such a wonderful story with a fairytale quality that charmed me from start to finish. Everyone loves a Prince, right? But a rogue???

Katharine Ashe once again confirms her status with me as a favorite author of mine. Her writing is rich and compelling. This is an impressive ending to this series in which all three books are good. The characters in this story, Eleanor and Taliesin, have been introduced and alluded to in the first two books. I was eagerly awaiting this story and hoping my expectations wouldn’t be so high. I am happy to say my expectations were surpassed.

Looking forward to this story, I was wondering how Ashe wa

I waited expectantly for this third book, but sadly, although the characters were intriguing - the storyline was just all over the place. I was super disappointed in how disjointed the romance was - barely any pleasurable time spent between Taliesin and Eleanor. They seemed to continually be at odds with one another simply because he didn't believe he was good enough for her and she misunderstood where he stood in his feelings.

Then there was at least one misunderstanding which was never even exp

***Thank you to Avon and Edelweiss for providing a copy for an honest review***

The love story of Eleanor Caulfield and Taliesin Wolfe has been slowly simmering in the background of the other Caulfield sisters’ books, with small hints given to the readers of what is to come. Author Katharine Ashe may have been playing the long game with her characters, but readers with a sharp eye could sense all of the angst just ready to bubble to the surface with these two quiet yet strong people. Going into t
While I liked the central characters, the Gothic plot was full of too many twists to keep the lovers apart longer than necessary: *slight spoilers* scheming, rival lovers, the unending mystery of heroine's past circumstances, a "madman in the attic," and evil relatives trying to kill the heroine. The painful misunderstandings of the past between the hero and heroine were also drawn out in frustrating length to the point of disbelief (she STILL doesn't get that he cared for her?!?

Eleanor, has always been the upstanding vicar's daughter, upstanding and intelligent and always devoted to her studies. She has never crossed the line, but inside she dreams of adventures and the one man that inspires and makes her dream of wicked delights, the sexy as sin gypsy, Taliesin.

I received this book early after attending the Avon KissCon event in January. The event was awesome and I would recommend it to other avid romance readers if Avon holds another one near you!

I was not sure what to expect from I Loved a Rogue, but I had my hopes and I was not disappointed. There was a lot of angst in this book, but the ending was awesome and made the agony I experienced aching for these star-crossed lovers worth it.

Eleanor has been in love with Taliesan forever and him vice-versa.
** 4.5 stars **

I'm thrilled I was lured in by the gorgeous cover, because I adored I Loved a Rogue! It is the third and final book in the Prince Catchers series, and though I think reading the the prior books would have given me an advantage going in, I do believe ILaR was perfectly acceptable to read as a standalone.

I Loved a Rogue completes the series arc, the Caulfield sisters' search for their biological family. That made for a good adventure with emotional appeal, but what hooked me hard w

So, I probably shouldn't have read the 3rd and last book first but based on the blurb, I knew as long as there was decent writing I Loved a Rogue was going to cover everything I like about historical romance. And I didn't just like this book, I loved it.

Item 1: Is the heroine intelligent, down to earth and lacks a stick up her ass?


Item 2: Is the hero a little broody, with a sense of humor and decency?


Item 3: Is there a decent if not fascinating plot line other than the actual roman

She wanted to tear off her bonnet and feel the dangerous joy of wind in her hair and blazing sunshine upon her face while she galloped her horse along the edge of the cliffs. To suck the cold, salty air into her nostrils and fill her hungry lungs.

Well, that was something splendid. One of the best historical romance I've ever read. I honestly did not expect to find such a deep and solid read when I took this book in my hands. I am glad that I was wrong.

Katharine Ashe has written a heartfelt conclusion to the Prince Catcher series. I Loved A Rogue features the characters of Eleanor Caulfield and Taliesin Wolfe. This is the story that I have waited to read. I am happy to report that Eleanor and Taliesin's story is fabulous!

The story centers on the Caulfield sisters, Eleanor, Arabella and Ravenna who were found by fisherman after a shipwreck. The sisters were sent to a workhouse until they were adopted by Vicar Martin Caulfield. The sisters belie

This book was just so disappointing.

I've never read anything by Katherine Ashe but I'm always willing to go out on a limb with new/unknown authors and since I DID have this on my "to read" list for awhile (as well as the added interest of a Gypsy hero) I was more than happy to do just that.

I guess I only have myself to blame. I expected too much and in the end I was disappointed.

A majority of the book was boring. The dialogue was bland between the characters, the chemistry was near non existent

A great ending to the series, I Loved a Rogue was a lovely read. With surprising secrets and unexpected truth, along with sweet romance, this book was an enjoyable read.

Eleanor was a little iffy for me. I found myself annoyed with her actions toward Taliesin, with were a verging on mean-spirited. It didn't help that she didn't defend him when several people, including her maid, judged him based on his background as a Gypsy. However, I did like her growth during the book. She not

I was lucky to get an ARC of this book. I couldn't wait to get Eleanor and Taliesin's story. I knew it would be a good one and I wasn't disappointed. These two met as children and fell in love. Through misunderstandings and other hazards, they are kept apart. Neither of them wanting to admit their feelings for each other for fear of rejection.

Together they go on an adventure to find out about Eleanor's parents. The twists and turns and ups and downs of this story had me wanting to read more. Do

A wonderful ending to this trilogy! I do not write plot spoilers. However, I do not think you will be disappointed. The questions, about Tali and the girls' heritage, from the first book, "I Married the Duke", are finally answered. You will like the answers and the new character, Evan Saint, who is to appear in a future book of Katharine's. I highly recommend this book.

It's been ages since I last picked up a romance novel, and this was a nice welcome back into HR. Nice love story of two soul mates but the story lagged somewhat in the frequent "he's leaving", "she's leaving" parries. Full review to come...(after finals =P)
For a couple who knew each other from the time they were children, they certainly didn't have much to say to each other. No witty banter, no heartfelt, soul searching conversations. Just a lot of gazing longingly at each other and a lot of thinking to themselves that the other one did not want them. I grew tired of it I guess. And for me, the last part of the story sort of went off the rails a bit and I just wanted the book to end. A bit of a disappointment because I did like the first book in t ...more

Eleanor Caulfield is the eldest of three sisters who were washed ashore from a shipwreck when she was four years old and the youngest was six months old. The series is about the adventure these sisters must make to try and fulfill a prophesy that a gypsy elder told them about their birthright. The only thing these children washed ashor

I think.. I've lost the ability to order my thoughts coherently. You know.. I'm sitting here writing a review when I should be researching world poverty and writing an article that's due May 29. The last time I sat up so consumed by a book.. I had an exam due the next day. But I couldn't help spending the last 2-3 hours finishing the last 10 chapters.. I spent the day at work sneaking peeks at chapters. And I don't regret spending those hours reading I Loved a Rogue.
