Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

More Than A Rogue is a work of Regency styled romantic drama penned by author Sophie Barnes, and it forms the second novel in The Crawfords series. This novel can be read as a standalone romance story, but it also contains and continues the storyline of characters from the previous book in the series, No Ordinary Duke. We are reunited with the would-be spinster Emily Howard and her obvious shared attraction with Griffin Crawford. As Emily ponders her future as a spinster, she is reserved in all fates but one: the act of kissing. Griffin seems like the ideal tester, but that single kiss leads them both into wanting much more than society seems to allow them.

Regency romance fans are certain to adore this elegant and amusing tale from cover to cover. Though I hadn’t read the first book, I slid into the storyline with ease and soon got to know the light political structure of the dukes and nobles, and Griffin’s station and the reasons why it seems he can’t remain in England for long. Author Sophie Barnes has created in Emily Howard a highly relatable character who draws parallels with modern self-esteem issues, making her instantly loveable and someone we really root for. The dialogue is a nice blend between classical English phrases and smoother, more modern and accessible tones, and there are plenty of twists and turns to the plot to keep you turning page after page. Overall, More Than A Rogue will provide to be addictive reading for romance fans everywhere, and is highly recommended.
