I generally don't read romance novels but enjoy an occasional one. This book held my interest better than I expected.

Opening with a prologue that will set the stage for events to come (and a problem that needs noting) we are introduced briefly to the hero of the story, Beau, and given some history and background. Lady Emmaline, after being married to a man old enough to be her grandfather is now a widow, left without mention in her late husband’s will. Relegated to dowager without income, she must find a way to support herself without overtaxing monies left to her from her parents. Additionally, the man who inherited the title held by Emma’s husband is eyeing her brother’s fortune and pushing for her to move her family in with him. Bryson, the former Viscount Rainsleigh (more details later) has mentioned to Emma that his younger brother Beau, newly titled Viscount, is in need of some ‘gentling and instruction in the ways of the Tonne”. Emma, believing that Bryson’s connections and fortune may help her (and her remaining family) with funds to relocate to New York. So, Emma, being of a practical nature and clever, accepts the offer and sets out to just get on with things. She’s engaging and solidly written, completely undeterred by the great amounts of resistance that Beau throws her way. Beau is the younger brother, uninterested in titles and completely unwilling to step into his brother’s shoes and assume control of title and lands. He’s had a bad experience with his time in society with a situation that ended badly, and he has convinced himself that his future is in mindless pursuits, away from society, responsibility and entanglements with women. Beau was far harder to appreciate, his steadfast refusal to grow up or grow a pair, get past what happened and move to learn how to be the Viscount and manage things properly were frustrating. He wasn’t sympathetic, he was weak-willed and often childish, and I applaud Emma’s patience in dealing with him. She had no children from her marriage, but inherited a man-boy with this job. Which, unfortunately kept the romance at the lukewarm level for me, hard to buy into a hero that didn’t hit any discernible mark of hero. An interesting, if not entirely engaging end to the series. Now for the issues: Bryson stepping away from the title of Viscount to pass it to his younger brother (ok – half-brother), and the new Duke of Ticking’s machinations to obtain Emma’s family lands and fortunes. Sadly, even in fiction an author must either adhere to actual fact, or diverge so greatly from them that facts are irrelevant. Setting a story in Regency England means that facts and laws (even if one plays with social interactions) exist, and these two elements not only contravene laws of the time, but are not even remotely close. Abdication of a title in that period required an act of Parliament, even as much as Bryson’s honor called for it, he was born in wedlock, and as such, the legal heir. Ticking’s machinations also would have required legal intervention for his takeover, as Teddy (Emma’s brother) was the legal and rightful heir. This misstep is one of those strange moments for a reader- it may have made for intriguing plot arcs for the author, but the lack of ‘correctness’ was problematic for me, signifying a lack of research. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

As the final book in the series it definitely does not disappoint. Its full of characters you will fall in love with. Charis Michaels has a unique writing style that makes you feel as if you are there. I highly recommend the entire series but each book can be read as a stand alone. I can't wait for more from this author!

Really enjoyed this book. Wonderful characters and the story was well written. Loved that Emmaline. It made me so sad and angry how women were possessions with no rights back in these times. Really great read.

Such a good story! I loved Beau and Emma from the very first pages, where she was determined to use the "help" she was determined to give him (which he decidedly did not want) to make life better for herself and her (probably somewhere on the Autistic spectrum?) younger brother. They were absolutely wonderful together on the page, whether they were not getting along, they were resisting getting along even better, or they were navigating their brand new relationship and its responsibilities. This is the third book in the series, but it worked fine as a standalone. The events that I'm assuming happened at some point in the first book ( The Virgin and the Viscount ) are important for a catalyst for some of the plot points here, but since you find out what you need to know about it in the prologue, you're fine if you haven't read it yet. (If you're like me, though, it will make you all that much more determined to read it ASAP--I need details! And to see Elizabeth and Bryson's story from the start ;) Author Charis Micheals is definitely one to watch! Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Charis Michaels is my favorite debut author of 2016, and I’ve loved all three books in her Bachelor Lords of London series. One for the Rogue is the third installment and might be my favorite. (Don’t worry if you have not read the prior two books; all the books are stand-alones.) I love a reluctant hero and Beau Courtland is a very reluctant hero. He’s met his match with the determined Emmaline, and their tumble into love was entertaining, fun and included Ms. Michael's subtle humor weaved throughout the story. Beau unwillingly became Viscount Ransleigh when it was discovered that his older brother, Bryson, was actually illegitimate. Beau has spent his entire life as a carefree rakehell while Bryson was always the serious, responsible brother. Beau doesn’t believe he’s cut out to be a Viscount nor does he want to be one; therefore, he does everything in his power to not act like one. He lives on a boat at the docks, doesn’t ever use his title and behaves without abandon resisting his brother’s constant efforts to get him to take on his new role. He’s flabbergasted when the dowager Duchess of Ticking, Emmaline, shows up at his boat telling him that she’s been sent there by his brother to train him how to behave. Beau is having none of it, but Emmaline is persistent and he’s attracted to her. She needs Beau to agree to the lessons, because she’s doing this in the hopes that Bryson will return the favor and help her. She needs Bryson’s ships to deliver a shipment to America to sell in order to protect her little brother’s inheritance. She’s her brother’s guardian. Once Beau discovers that there is more to Emmaline’s pursuit than his just brother’s expectations, he concedes and they begin. Neither expects their simple lessons could lead to so much more. I loved Emmaline’s brother in the story; it added a heartfelt and interesting storyline. Emmaline is clever, strong and definitely the kick in the pants that Beau needs. Their love story was both sweet, sexy and emotional. One for the Rogue is an all around satisfying read making this a great series finale in the Bachelor Lords of London series. ARC provided by publisher via Edelweiss, but no one made me write this review and my opinions are honest and my own.

Beau is a man with a plan. Outrun his responsibilities and live the way he sees fit. Emma is a woman with little choices. Her mission should she choose to accept it lies in convinces this rebel adventurer to live up to his full potential. She just has to convince him that a little spit and polish can be the best thing that ever happened to him. One for the Rogue got me thinking of My Fair Lady in reverse. Beau needs help becoming the man he was meant to be and Emma is his tutor extraordinaire. Amidst the drama, scandal and betrayal that Emma and Beau face in their lives, lies a better understanding of what each is capable of, individually. What they have to teach each other is more the focus of the story than anything else. Charis Michaels is excellent at creating characters that are more than surface flash, you just have to dig deep to expose the layers, and along the way discover the enchanting side of the journey.
