ILovedRogueI feel so much more removed from historical romances than I used to be. At one point, historical romance was my go-to genre. But in 2015, I made an effort to read more and therefore have a good number of them on my favorite reads of 2015! I already posted my favorite kinky reads of 2015 and my favorite new to me authors of 2015.


I Loved a Rogue by Katharine Ashe: This romance has a vicar’s daughter and the gypsy she has always loved. Talieson returns home, after years away, and Eleanor isn’t sure what to do. Her life is in a bit of an uproar with her father’s very recent marriage. She feels a bit left out and left behind. With Talieson’s return, Eleanor decides to go off on an adventure to find out about her family (she and her sisters were adopted). Things between Eleanor and Talieson are tense and fraught with sexual tension. He doesn’t believe he is good enough for Eleanor, but also can’t resist her. I adored the emotional angst and longing in this romance. It was at times a tense read, but so very worth it. Also, I recommend reading the Prince Catcher books in order as there is a series arc.
