In 1807 Cornwell, in a rage and abetted by two others, Squire Shackleford’s son Thomas beats up Taliesin Wolfe the Gypsy lad for his audacity with the vicar’s oldest of three adopted daughters.  Though Taliesin loves Eleanor Caulfield and believes she loves him too, he leaves town for her sake.

Over eleven years later, having never forgotten the woman he left behind, Taliesin returns to his beloved Eleanor while she attends her father’s marriage.  Fated to wed royalty, Eleanor remains in love with the rogue who deserted her.  Having survived a shipwreck along with her siblings when they were babies, Eleanor plans to begin a quest to learn who her biological family was.  Encouraged by the persistence of his beloved’s sisters (see Ravenna in I Adored The Lord and Arabella in I Married A Duke) supposedly to keep her safe, Taliesin agrees on traveling with his (he hopes) Eleanor. 

The final Prince Catchers regency is an electrifying twisting suspense in which the terse intrigue supersedes the wonderful romance.  I Loved A Rogue is a gripping drama that answers the overarching mystery within an excellent second chance historical.
