A Remarkable Rogue is the fifth book in the Lords of the Armory series, and it’s a suspenseful historical romance! Captain Nathaniel Reed is searching for the leaders of Scepter, a revolutionary group eager to overthrow the government, and he believes Sydney is involved. Tasked with investigating Sydney, Nate doesn’t expect to be drawn to the mysterious woman, but when she asks for his help, he can’t refuse her. Can Sydney help Nate take down Scepter, and can Nate protect Sydney before it’s too late?
Anna Harrington is such a fantastic storyteller, and it’s easy to fall back into this immersive world of espionage and romance. It’s such a romantic and intriguing series, and I loved Sydney and Nate’s story! They are both well-developed and interesting protagonists, and Sydney and Nate both go on emotional and physical journeys, and both have suffered so much in their lives. They’re definitely the kind of characters you want to root for, especially when contrasted with the vile antagonists who stand in the way of their happiness.
Of course, my favorite part of the story is the swoon-worthy enemies-to-lovers romance. Sydney and Nate have amazing chemistry, and their growing feelings for each other are fantastic. You can feel their connection from their very first meeting, and that spark only grows as the story progresses. Sydney and Nate face many obstacles, including Scepter, secrets, lies, and more. Plus, Sydney’s terrified of losing her independence and giving her life over to a man, and she has someone else to protect. Nate also doesn’t want to marry. They are slow to trust each other, and burdened by their respective pasts, they have a lot to work through. Past wounds still need a bit of healing when this pair first meets. However, the more they fall for each other and care for each other, the more they rethink their feelings about commitment and marriage. Their feelings prove stronger than all the conflicts that stand in their way. Like the other relationships in the series, this relationship is filled with chemistry and longing, and I was totally there for it!
I really enjoyed this story and the series as a whole. It’s exciting and intriguing, and the characters and romance is fantastic! I would definitely recommend the book to readers that enjoy historical romance or romantic suspense. Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for providing me with a copy of the book. All thoughts are my own.
