You’re a princess. I’m a thief. This isn’t a Disney movie. We never had a chance in hell of a happy ending. But I still wish I could have given you one.
When we met, I had you pegged as a snob. All polo and private jets. But you turned out to be the exact opposite. I fell for you the day we met.
I lied to you about a lot of things. I don’t expect or deserve your forgiveness. You’re too good for me. But I was always honest about my feelings for you.
I hope you’ll find true happiness one day. That’s the only way I’ll ever be happy—knowing you’re okay.
PS—don’t let your blackjack game go to crap. Practice it every day, all right?

POV: Jane and Charlie
Steam Level: Quite Warm to downright fiery
I adore this series! We’ve met Princess Jane in Kit/Emily’s and Rob/Aly’s books, meeting her just after her divorce and going a little wild. In Royal Rogue she less wild, publicly, still jaded, but healing. I live the interplay between Jane and Charlie, the inner turmoil, and getting to know Jack more (side note – I really, really hope that Jack is getting his book too. Please Jessica Peterson, please!). Royal Rogue was equal points sweet and sexy, funny and suspenseful. Fans of The Princess Bride (such as myself) will nerd out on all the movie references and also make you look at in a whole new, dirtier light.
Overall, Royal Rogue was quite fun. I loved catching up with the Thornes and getting to know Princess Jane more. I love that all three books tie together so well and am looking forward to reading more from Jessica Peterson. If you’re looking for royal romance full of filthy mouths, cheating in monopoly, sibling rivalry and love, steamy sex, and an appearance or two from the queen then pick up Royal Rogue. I suggest also reading Kit and Rob’s books in order to fully immerse yourself in this family but it’s not necessary. Royal Rogue is a great addition to the series and I truly hope to see Jack’s book soon.
I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
- Where the hell were we? And would I be cool with assless leather chaps and ball gags if they were on the menu?
- Charlie was making me feel all blush-y and tingly.
- “For a douchebag,you’re a pretty nice bloke.”
- Hadn’t we all be crushed by life and love and loss one time too many?
- A frisson of anticipation shot up my spine. His physicality-his maleness-it scared me a little. It turned me on.
- He made me feel important and sexy and interesting. He liked me for me.
- Were honesty and authenticity and happy marriages just a rich persons thing? Is that why I’d never experienced them before? Or had I just buried myself so deeply in my own world I’d never though to look for them?
- “He’s like-like a shot of whiskey after a lifetime of plain water”…”I don’t want to encourage your attempts at poetry. But I’ve got to point out that water doesn’t burn. Whiskey, though, does.”
- Leave it to me to fall for a con who had a heart of gold.
- All families are weird. Period. No matter who your family was or where you are from.
