Review: Rogue Most Wanted by Janna MacGregor
St. Martin’s Paperbacks, 2019
I usually LOVE anything that Janna MacGregor writes so it feels weird for me to say that wasn’t my favorite.
This book started off strong with an interesting prologue that has William, the hero, jilted by a woman he intends to marry. I usually gobble this kind of thing up because ‘once burned by love’ stories are often delicious. But this initial heartbreak/betrayal didn’t seem to affect the hero very much throughout the story. In fact, William seemed like a pretty well-adjusted dude. And while that’s great for William, it wasn’t terribly exciting.
I did find Theodora to be a compelling character. It’s not often you have a romance heroine who has inherited her own lands/title. I admire Theodora’s drive to fight for what was legally hers. But after a while this plot point took up too much focus to hold my interest.
Of course, I will forever love Janna MacGregor. Don’t let this review stop you from reading more from her because she is excellent! This is the first time one of her books didn’t do much for me and I think it’s one of those “it’s not you, it’s me” scenarios. Thank you, Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy.
