There’s one creed all Cavensham men subscribe to: they fall in love completely and decidedly. But what happens when the woman you fall in love with swears she’ll only marry you as a last resort?

SHE NEEDS TO MARRY SOMEONE

Lady Theodora Worth needs to marry fast in order to keep her estate. It’s been her heart and home for years, and she’ll not lose it to anyone. There’s just one problem—as a woman who was raised in isolation by her grandfather, she’s completely incapable of pouring a cup of tea, never mind wooing a man. She’ll need a little matchmaking help from her sprightly next-door neighbor in order to find a convenient husband…

IT’S JUST NOT GOING TO BE HIM

Lord William Cavensham’s heart was broken years ago, and since that day he vowed to never love again. But his spirited Great Aunt Stella is determined he’ll marry or not inherit a single penny from her. And she’s got just the woman in mind—her beautiful and completely hapless next-door neighbor, Thea…

Thea and Will agree there’s no sense in marrying each other. Will wholeheartedly believes he’s incapable of love, and Thea refuses to marry the first man she’s practically met. But Will may be the rogue Thea wants the most after all.

My Rating:  4.5 stars

I always love going back to the Cavensham family for yet another family member’s romance and this time it’s Will’s turn in ROGUE MOST WANTED.  Thea is more accustomed to running her grandfather’s estates as he grew more forgetful in his final years than to becoming a debutante in society on the hunt for a husband.  Yet her needs mean nothing now that her grandfather has passed and an unscrupulous Duke is crawling out of the woodwork with his eye on her grandfather’s land and titles.  Even though one titled land could pass down to her – if she could find the paperwork that proves that fact.  Her only hope is to marry yet that is the last thing Thea wants to do.  Her neighbor’s well intention “help” might be the answer if she ever really wanted to marry a stranger and not wait for the love match she craved.

I enjoyed watching Thea and Will work their way through stubbornness, drama, misunderstandings, and danger to trusting in their feelings for each other.  This story will play on your emotions as there are many moments when I teared up over events that were happening.  Janna MacGregor has always written stories that touch my heart but this one goes a bit deeper into that emotional response from me.  I had such a good time with ROGUE MOST WANTED and I’m definitely looking forward to WILD, WILD ROGUE which is up next in early 2020.
