I tried...I really did... but I just didn’t like it.

Maybe it is because I have been reading quite a few “good guy” romances lately and I am just a little tired of the syrupy sweet, but this was TOO sweet for me. First of all the term Rogue in the title is very misleading because the hero is so far from being a rogue...nowhere near it. He is all things sweet and nice, overly so in my opinion.

Yes, I love an alpha, but I can take a beta in small doses but this was too much “all good” for me. I have

I’m a sympathetic crier…

I can admit it, I’m a sympathetic crier, especially in my reads. I’m even worse when everyone around the person who is embarrassed, goes out of their way to make them feel better. Actually, no, I’m also a crier when they get laughed at too. I guess it doesn’t really matter the outcome, embarrassment is just something that affects me. Deep down, I know my fear of embarrassment stops me from taking a risk, stepping into the unknown or going out on a limb. In some ways, I im

Rogue Most Wanted isn’t really a fitting title for this, but I guess Nice Guys I Can’t Marry For No Reason isn’t a catchy title.  I liked quite a few things in this book, but it had one thing that didn’t really work for me at all.

But, let's talk about the good stuff first.  Both main characters are very likeable.

Fifth in the Cavensham Heiresses series, you'll remember Will Cavensham as the sweet but closed off brother to the previous heroines and hero in this series. We learn that he was coldly jilted in his youth and has therefore locked his heart away for good. When his aunt tells him about her neighbor who needs their help, he's stunned by his feelings for her.

When Thea’s right to her inheritance is called into question, she is left scrambling to prove she is the rightful heir to her grandfather’s land and title. Having never set foot in London, much less its society, she is confronted with her complete lack of skills in proving her worth. But when her neighbor and friend extends her help in the form of her nephew and the promise of marriage, she steps up to do what needs to be done in order to win her case.

I absolutely adored the first half of the book. I loved how both characters were given enough chance to get to know one another, how they became friends and that friendship grew slowly into more. To be fair, nothing happens between them for the first 50%, but I loved that. Thea was that rare heroine who is independent without being mulish and annoying me, and had grown up without hardly knowing anyone. I loved how sweet the first family to show her kindness and affection was. The Cavenshams real ...more

WOW! Color me impressed. While I usually like this author’s books, I don’t love them. This one, however, I loved. I loved the characters; I loved the unusual storyline and I loved the writing. I may be a bit jaded, but I rarely tear up during the emotional scenes in a book – I think that is mostly because – well – it is a romance and I KNOW there will be a happily-ever-after at the end. This book managed to make me te

* Sigh *

Janna MacGregor gets me every time, she has my heart pounding and my eyes leaking constantly, what a gift , what a book .

Rogue Most Wanted is William and Theadora’s story .

It’s a magnificent, magical journey through Thea’s memories of her Grandfather and his life with her, and continues with the Romance between herself and Will.
Some of those memories are so beautifully described and emotionally charged .
Get the tissues ready .

Williams life has been tough emotionally too ,

Another lovely addition to the Cavensham series. I adore this world Janna MacGregor has created.
I am currently listening to other Janna MacGregor novels and am slowly becoming a fan, This happens to be the best one that I’ve read thus far. It is a story of a Lady Theodora (Thea) Worth, Countess Eanruig, who has inherited her grandfather’s title and in order to keep it she must defend her right and challenge a male heir that isn’t deserving. She searches desperately to find the legal document that entitles her to the title but believes her grandfather has misplaced or destroyed it. With the ...more

I had read and enjoyed the previous book in this series and I’m always here for a fake relationship, so I was eager to get to this one.

I liked Thea and Will well enough. She’s strong and steadfast and he’s loyal and maybe a little bitter. Together they have an easy friendship and loving relationship. There’s a big group of characters here and they’re all pretty rad. I could easily read books about any of them.

Plot wise, it was sort of meh. It felt disjointed and I never felt captivated by or i

Will and Thea's story is sweet and very passionate. I love me some good whisky writing! Janna MacGregor comes through again <3 This has been a fabulous series with characters whose personalities set them apart, not to mention their individual trials. Well researched, and a joy!

No spoilers here, but this story was inspired by court transcripts involving a woman who inherits a title. I love that.. and the special care given to the subject of dementia, not to mention all the whisky kisses!!! Did I

This was my first foray into Janna MacGregor's historical romance, and I had mixed feelings about this book. I liked what it was trying to do and certain elements of it, but the execution could have been better. Lady Theodora Worth is the heir to a Scottish title and land from her recently deceased grandfather, but her claim is being threatened by a powerful male relative. She must look into marrying quickly in order to strengthen her claim in the eyes of the male lawmake
In Rogue Most Wanted, Lord William Cavensham had never been one to ponder any swoon worthy thoughts which was due to his rather unpleasant view of romance since he had been jilted as a young adult. In fact, when it came to love he really didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. He had spent many years isolating himself and putting barriers between him and anything that could possibly ever even come close to a relationship with a woman. That, of course, was until he met Miss Theodora Worth. ...more

Intrigue and romance, with a twist!

Elderly ladies masquerading as fairy god mothers, a happy family, a handsome son thwarted in love and a young countess besieged on all sides with her title and lands under threat, a wicked cousin making our heroine's life hell and a gossip newspaper publishing scurrilous tidbits for the ton to titter about.
What more could you want in a lighthearted romance.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Rogue Most Wanted by Janna MacGregor is book 5 in The Cavensham Heiresses Series. This is the story of William 'Will' Cavensham and Theodora 'Thea' Worth. I have read (and Loved!) the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.

Oh my word, I think this might very well be the first book of its kind that I am giving 5 stars to. I'm as shocked as any because usually the ridiculousness of some of these really turns me off. That said, there is a very simple reason as to why this book is the first of many read I am giving such a rating to: it took its time. Finally, a historical romance that doesn't put the emphasis on quick quick and takes those desperately needed extra 100 pages to fill in a story worthy of a wonderful rom ...more

This is a story of not only the love that grows between a young woman alone in the world and her newfound friend, but the deep nurturing love shown by her grandfather who raised her, and the love and unending support from a family who has welcomed her into their home and lives. So many layers to this joy of a book.

Lady Theodora, Countess Eanruig, alone after the death of her grandfather, immediately finds herself in a fight for the earldom she has inherited, her home, Ladykyrk, and all she holds

R.A.W. E.M.O.T.I.O.N.!! Janna MacGregor has simply outdone herself! Every once in a great while a book comes along that simply blow you out of the water. This is one of those books. A heroine who needs a marriage of convenience to save the family estate; the unwilling hero who has no desire to ever marry, a meddling aunt and her best friend; and members of the Cavensham family making appearances make this a must read.

A really nice story with nice characters. Theodora Worth is set to inherit a Scottish title. She is devoted to her estate, Ladykyrk, and the people that live and work there. When an English duke challenges her right of inheritance one suggestion was for her to marry. Lord William Cavensham doesn't want to marry, but he agrees to help her as a friend. Thus begins a relationship that everyone wants except the two people involved -- or maybe the two are too quick to decide.

Rogue Most Wanted is a refreshing take on Regency romance with the FMC the one who is titled, the MMC an untitled second son, and a duke as the villain.

Thea and William are such kind, likable characters, the reader can't help but root for them to overcome the obstacles and end up together. I was genuinely touched by Thea's care for her grandfather who had dementia and for William's esteem of his great-aunt Stella.

This is an easy read for me with an intriguing plot (Thea has to defend her title

Review of Rogue Most Wanted by Janna MacGregor


Thea has inherited Scottish earldom from her grandfather upon his death. She is fighting Duke Ferr-Colby, who is claiming an English right to the title.

Will has had his heart broken and has vowed never to love.

These two people are brought together by great aunt Stella. She is Wills great aunt and was a friend of Theas grandfather. Thea turns to her with her estate problems and she sees a perfect matchmaking opportunity.

Unfortunately I just did not

When you choose a book by Janna MacGregor, you’re choosing well.

Rogue Most Wanted is funny, and romantic, and makes you feels good in all the right places.

I loved the characters, and identified very easily with them. Will had been hurt before, and Thea is willing to do almost anything to save and help those that depend on her – even

You know that moment in a book when you know you’re hooked on the story? Yeah, well here I was waiting for that moment…and waiting….and waiting. I’ll be honest, the first 40 % of the book really dragged. I didn’t feel the chemistry between characters, to me they looked more like friends than lovers. I was reading the first half of the book for ages. Every time I thought I read like ten percent more, I looked at the bottom of the page and was a little disappointed that I only read one percent.

This was an engaging read. Two likeable characters in Lady Theodora and Lord William. Theodora had spent the last seven years isolated in Northumberland caring for her grandfather and looking after their tenants. She was loved by everyone who knew her. William has been unlucky in love but had a strong loving bond with his family and he helped them in many ways. Theodora also had a problem concerning her title and her estate. Theodora and William were attracted to each other but various circumsta ...more
This book was delightfully sweet and charming. The Cavensham family continues to entertain and delight with their goodness and heartfelt stugles to find happily ever afters. Janna MacGregor's style is both uplifting and light, just a perfect beach escape to regency England. I enjoyed it and would recommend the whole series as a easy, charming escape.
