This is book 3, and the final book, in this trilogy and I found it more engaging than Iron Princess, but still lacking a little from Savage Prince. I enjoyed the twists and unexpected turns, but I found the relationship between Tempe and Kane just kinda ho-hum. I wish they could've gone back to the sex club and experimented more.
I'm curious what happens with Mags. She was left hanging in the end and I'm wondering where she goes from here. I love that Kane and Nan reconnected and will hopefully spend many years making up for lost time.
I have been hooked on this series and had to stop momentarily to start her “Beneath” series when I realized characters from there appear in Temperance’s story... I have been on a Meghan March binge and it is SOOO good.
One woman’s rogue is another woman’s king
Just when you think you know where this book (this trilogy, really) is headed, Meghan March shows you just how adept she is at fooling you. People, she makes a point of saying, can be mirages: you see what you want to see--what you need to see--which makes reality a bit of a shock.
Temperance can be guilty of this. She thinks she knows the people in her life, but it turns out that she believes the mirage more often than she should, yet she also has a keen perception that helps her navigate her way through who to trust and who not. I like this dichotomy in her. Sometimes I want to shout at her, and sometimes I want to hug her.
Fortunately, Kane matches her perfectly. Reading this romance is fun, frisky, and fraught with tension and conflict. And once you start, you will not be able to put the book down.
Meghan March gives a solid conclusion to her trilogy, and she also delivers characters you will love to get to know.
A Fitting Resolution
By Fairest Reviews
Boy can Meghan March write kickass heroines! After reading Keira and Mount’s trilogy, Keira took her rightful place as my absolute favorite, but I have to say, after reading March’s Savage Trilogy, Temperance claims the spot right next to Keira, and given the fact that they worked together and Temperance stepped up for Keira when she needed someone in her corner the most, I’m not surprised that I adore them both. I also think it’s fitting that the men who own their hearts are not what people would deemed ‘upstanding citizens,’ but when it comes to being worthy of these beautiful, spirited, and amazing ladies, Mount and Temperance’s man are everything Keira and Temperance need them to be, so even though these bad boy males are categorized as anti-heroes, in my vantage point, as long as Mount and Temperance’s man protect their women and attempt to not bring them into the darkness that seems to surround these two dynamic men then their illegal dealings don’t define them…the way they love and they defend who they’ve claimed as theirs is all that matters, at least when it comes to Meghan March’s world of shadows, secrets, and lies.
Even though Temperance may not feel this way at the beginning of Rogue Royalty, she is one hell of a strong woman and 100% her own person, and while I may not have particularly cared how Mount delivered this idea to Temperance, I don’t disagree with his thoughts about stealing her spine, standing up, and not acting like she’s dead. This whole ‘fake it until you make it’ routine is not working for Temperance and so with a push from Mount and so much needed insight, Temperance finds a way to keep moving forward despite the deep sense of betrayal and heartache that she feels.
No one and nothing is what it seems when it comes to the underbelly of New Orleans, Louisiana, and Meghan March illustrates this idea brilliantly throughout the course of Temperance and her anti-hero’s final book. And when secrets start to be revealed and Temperance’s broken pieces start to fissure back together, hold on even tighter because everything I thought I knew is turned upside down and when all the chips are played and maneuvers made, what’s left is still a bit of a disastrous hot mess, but it’s one that was created on Temperance’s terms because regardless of what she thought she could withstand, her fearlessness, her moxie, and her determination to be everything that she’s always wanted to be is what pushes her forward despite her grief, despite her anger, and despite the fact that her whole life has changed partly due to the man who refuses to give her up but mostly due to her own drive and need to prove the naysayers wrong, and boy does she ever!

***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW***
In typical Meghan March fashion, Rogue Royalty is filled with suspense and steamy scenes between the hero and heroine. Readers won’t be able to guess what she has in store for them.
The hero in this book went a bit soft on me, and I’m not sure how I felt about it. One of the things I love about Meghan March’s heroes is how they are dominant and alpha, but show their women they care on how they take care of them. This hero, though, was much more vocal, and I found myself missing who he was in book one and two. There are moments where we get to see the alpha, but I wanted more.
Temperance is a bit of a mess during this book, understandably, but she gets herself together. Like most of March’s heroines, she does what she wants and chases her dreams, which makes me love her. She isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants or demand it, and I love that she wants both of them to get their dreams.
The first section of this story is fantastic and the last 30% had me burning through the pages, but the middle dragged for me a bit in terms of pacing. It is still sexy and filled with plot twists that will leave your head spinning, but I wish the middle would have moved a bit faster.
Meghan March is one of my favorites, and with Rogue Royalty we get all the parts that readers love about her work with an HEA that will satisfy the romance lover.
Love these royals!
Loved this book! I won’t give too much away, but the beginning of this book broke my heart. Then Meghan took me on wild ride that I absolutely loved! As I keep saying, I think this series is Meghan’s best work yet! You will not regret reading this series!
Steamy, twisty, awesome!
Loved this final book in the series! Way to go out on top Meghan March, I loved every word!
All three books go together and the first two had super duper cliffy's that just about drove you mad and made you love the author even more lol
I love Temperance, waiting patiently for book 3 to find out how her path plays out was so hard but so worth it! She is so strong, she's gone through so much...this book is filled with twists and turns at every page. Making you wonder just how things will play out. Definitely one of those reads you better get comfy for because you're going to devour this book and series!
Lots of drama and sexy times too which is what we expect from the author...she does it so well!
I can say that you will feel so surprised at the end of the book, at least I was!
5 huge stars, highly recommend!!!
Lots of surprises!
3.5-4 First off I love Meghan's books and I'm just writing an honest review.
I was curious to see what was going to happen in this book. I had my thoughts and they turned out to be right in some ways. I felt like this book had too much going on at a time. Temp and Kane were just too much at times. They just didn't connect with me.
I really like how the Beneath characters made an appearance. Ariel was my favorite!
The ending was a shock and nothing I saw coming. The epilogue was sweet as well!
Sexy, Scorching, Satisfying Conclusion
Meghan March is the boss of writing a sexy, hot, romantic suspense, spacing out the story until you're climbing the walls, dying to pick up where the action last left off, and just have to have that ending. Yep, she's done it more than once, and I love it.
ROGUE ROYALTY, the final book in the Savage Trilogy, packs one heck of a punch, ratcheting up the action and bringing the 'oh, dang!' moments that I so love in Meghan's writing. And heat, oh, yes, plenty of that, too, and questions answered, and a story that does not quit. I absolutely could not put this book down, not only because I needed to know how the heck things played out, but because Kane and Tempe, plus the rest of the delicious anti-hero crew, have become some of my favorites.
There are all the usual suspects from Meghan's Beneath series, expertly interwoven into this storyline, and as lovable as ever. ROGUE ROYALTY really brings it all, the suspense, the twists and turns, the sexiness, and some unexpectedly sweet moments, and I loved it. This 5-star series needs to be on romance TBRs everywhere, so make sure to add it to yours.
WOW... What an ending! I absolutely loved Rogue Royalty. This conclusion of Kane and Temperance’s story is the perfect combination of intense drama, hot chemistry, romance, emotional ups and downs with lots is surprises. She writes exciting and titillating love stories which keep me coming back for more. I'm sad this series has come to end, but i pray there will be more from the NOLA crew in the future. Definitely recommend this series!
