What I liked:
Regency romances are all about the splendor and opulence of the ton. It's about decorum and the proper way to do things. Anna Harrington's writing adheres to a lot of those norms that readers expect from a Regency author, but she isn't adverse to taking a few risks either. I thought this story showed a lot of confidence in the author's ability to sell her story to her audience. She may be writing about earls and marque's and the like, but she also writes about rogues and orphans. The balance between what the ton expects and what the ton gets was just perfect in this one.
Emily has a big secret, that may determine her future in every way. Nathaniel has a big secret that could deter everything he has ever worked for in his life. This story is about secrets and how they define the characters in the book. Grey is a rogue that operates on the outskirts of the ton, enjoying the benefits, but not really being a part. I loved the fact that Harrington makes the reader think he doesn't really care about that, but then shows that he does. Emily is his best friends little sister. A stolen kiss sets her life in a spiral, and now her life is threatened. She is not longer the brat, Grey once knew. But a strong and capable woman. Great characters all around! Multi-faceted and intense.Read more ›
Along Came a Rogue is a swoon worthy romance that had me wanting to go right back to the beginning and read it all over again once I reached the end.
Basically the story begins when one of Major Nathaniel Grey’s best friends is seriously hurt and begins to ask for his sister. Grey promises to bring her to him no matter what but when Grey arrives at her home she’s not in the friendliest of moods and she’s not the skinny little girl affectionately known as “Brat” anymore. Instead Grey finds that Emily is a grown woman and while she might have once been thrilled by the prospect of spending time with him, her childhood crush, now all she is to be left alone with her secrets.
From the moment they met up again I just knew that Grey and Emily’s romance was a romance that was worth reading and savoring. With each page I grew more and more convinced that Along Came a Rogue was going to be one of those rare books that made me fall madly, deeply in love with the beginning, middle and happy end of Grey and Emily’s romance. I fell in love with the love story. If that makes sense. There was such a connection between the two characters that went far beyond the physical and it just worked so well for these characters. Anna Harrington knew just how to portray both personalities in a way that left no doubt that Grey and Emily were meant to be together. I’ve rarely ever been this enamored with a couple! And Grey made the word “brat” seem like the tenderest of endearments.
Each scene flowed so nicely into the next that it made my reading experience smooth and uninterrupted but it was what was happening in each scene that held my attention.Read more ›
I loved Anna Harrington’s Along Came a Rogue. Her development of characters and the fast flow of the story had me hooked from page one.
Nathaniel Grey is introduced as a rake in the Ton society who beds whenever and whomever he desires at the time. When his best friend is shot and asks him to find and bring his little sister home Nathaniel jumps at the chance. He would do anything for his best friends as they have survived the war together and have history. I mean how hard it would be to go and get the gangly girl he remembers. When he is shot at by her, as he approaches the house he soon realizes that all is not well. As he gradually pulls her story out of her he realizes he is falling in love with Emily. Being a Major with no background in nobility and in fact with no background at all he knows that marriage is not likely. But all family backgrounds have secrets and in the end he learns his. Will it be enough to end her stubbornness towards him?
Emily since she was 16 has always carried a crush for her brother’s best friend. When he turns up unannounced she is a widow of a loveless marriage with many secrets. Her husband she knows was murdered and someone is trying to kill her and the unborn child she carries. Desperately she wants to disappear before these secrets are revealed. Can she trust her heart? Although she trusts Nathanial she does not want to put him or her family in harm’s way.
The chemistry between the two is undeniable but they both must trust their love to allow it flourish.
The story flows quickly and I for one was drawn into the setting and quickly felt as the intrigue builds. The mystery of why Emily is being targeted and the why is skillfully managed as the love story progresses. A truly delightful book and I look forward to other books by Anna Harrington.
