THE RAKE OF HEARTS by Emily Windsor

A Reader's Opinion

The Rake of Hearts is an incredibly entertaining read.

There is such a sweet and charming romance that blossoms between Ernest and Hebe. Redmond and Beatrice's affair was a treat to read as well. I found the characters' personalities a joy to read.

The dialogue was easy to understand and I found it easy to follow along with the plot. There is a great deal of realism in the story thanks to the writer's detailed descriptions. There were a number of characters that brought some witty moments to the story, such as Beatrice, and the old man who ran the stables for Ernest father.

This story kept me turning the pages, and left no room for boredom. For me, this was a very happily ever after love story.


The Rake of Hearts

A Lady to Suit, Book 2

When the heart is afire...

By his own admission, Lord Ernest Brook is a rake. With sapphire gaze, sinfully handsome looks and a duke for a brother, the pleasures of London have come with ease...apart from one.

Ever since the gauntlet of her first wintry dismissal was thrown, the widowed Hebe Locke has stirred his deepest desires, but just what would it take to woo such a woman?

Sparks will fly.

Hebe Locke has vowed to never again fall for a scoundrel after her brief marriage to one left her broken and haunted.

Now she finds comfort with paintbrush and canvas, but as a female artist in a male world, commissions are as rare as a ballroom without rakes.

A castle of enchantment.

As the heat of late summer warms the land, an ancient, moated castle plays host to a widow and a rake, both concealing passions contrary to their reputations.

But as Lord Ernest awakens Hebe's desire and thaws her frozen emotions, can she hold true to her vow?

Or can this rake win the one heart he yearns for?

Sensual Regency romance with warmth and wit, this tale also includes a disreputable aunt with a secondary love story, Cotswold country fairs, sinful masquerades and...a goat.
