ARC Review: Along Came a Rogue by Anna Harrington

Title: Along Came a Rogue

Author: Anna Harrington


Major Nathaniel Grey is free to bed whomever he wants, whenever he chooses, and that’s exactly how he likes it.  His only loyalties are to country and the two friends he served with—brothers he’d do anything for.  So when one of them is gravely injured and asking for his little sister, Grey will move heaven and earth to bring her home.  He’s greeted not by the gangly girl he remembers, but a stunningly beautiful woman holding a loaded musket. And he’s utterly captivated by her…

Once upon a time, Emily would have loved nothing more than a stolen hour with her brother’s best friend, the dashing officer who captured her heart and soul.  But things are different now—and so is she.  Gone is the eager young woman who believed in love.  In her place is a widow weighed down with secrets who desperately needs to disappear before they’re revealed.  But Grey’s sinfully sexy smile offers protection unlike anything she’s ever known, tempting her to risk everything…even her heart.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

Along Came a Rogue, the second book in Anna Harrington's The Secret Life of Scoundrels series was a very fun sequel. Nathaniel and Emily's love story was absolutely wonderful and I loved how different it was from a lot of the other historical romance I read because of the situation that Emily was in. I won't go into it because of spoilers, but I found it very unique and I really loved how the author dealt with that particular plot point. Anywho, special circumstances aside, my favorite part of this book was the really sweet romance between Nathaniel and Emily. I read a lot of romances in which the heroine falls in love with their brothers's best friends in both the historical and contemporary romance sub-genres and the one featured in this book was a particularly good one. The only issue I had with this book was that there were aspects of the plot that I felt like could have been fleshed out a little bit more since I felt like the resolution to all of Emily's problems at the end of the book was a bit abrupt. Other than that this book was fantastic and it was a another great installment to this wonderful series by one of my new favorite historical romance authors.
