Katharine Ashe's latest is a great ending to this series
I LOVED A ROGUE
The Prince Catchers Book 3
I LOVED A ROGUE is a continuing story about three sisters who washed ashore after a shipwreck and their journey to find out who are their real parents.
When a gypsy fortune teller tells them that one of them must marry a prince before they can find out who they are, they each set about to trying to determine their heritage. They were adopted by Martin Caulfield and he raised them as his own. He also took in a young boy, Taliesin Wolfe, and gave him the education and opportunities he would of his son. The girls and Taliesin grew up together and the oldest daughter, Eleanor, and he became very close, he sort of a protector. He was always teasing and tormenting her and she felt a little jealous of him, but also there was more than just friendship happening between them. Then, he just left and she never forgot him, nor he her. When he returns, she knows that she shouldn't trust her heart again. Taliesin had his reasons for why he left home, but he's never gotten over Eleanor. Seeing her again, he knows he will end up doing anything for her, including helping her trace her family. Their journey of discovery ends up being more than just about their past, they also learn about themselves.
Katharine Ashe continues to show why she's a great story teller. She takes characters and makes their journey full of angst and longing, which in turn makes the reader keep turning the pages. Taliesin and Eleanor love each other, but they have a lot to overcome. I enjoyed learning the entire past of the sisters, as well as Taliesin's and how it plays into the fortune teller's reading. It's a great ending to a good series. Even though this can be read as a stand alone, it would be best to read them together to get the full effect of the final pieces to the puzzle.
