‘The Rake’s Handbook’ by Sally Orr

trh soSTORY: The definitive guide to seduction…

The Rake’s Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies—who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook—but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross’s notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.

Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross’s country estate. She’s appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive business plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross’s seductive ways. But he keeps coming around…impressing her with his vision for England’s future and stunning her with his smiles.

How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?

REVIEW: I have to say that of late I’ve read a lot of very dark, dramatic stories and then I stumble on this. I’m not going to go into the story much because the book blurb is well written and tells most of the story, but for a debut book for this author, I must say I am impressed.  This was a fun book to read and I needed it!

It was fast paced, witty and a delight to lose myself in.

Both hero and heroine were very likable and entertaining but what makes this book so fun to read is the dialogue between all the protagonists, main or secondary.

I highly recommend this light-hearted, highly entertaining and fast paced romance to all of you that have read a heavy and dramatic reads lately. This one will have you grinning and laughing from page one to the last.

I'm married, working, and have grown and independent kids. I love gardening, reading and painting. My favorite TV show is Dancing With the Stars! Television shows have gone to the crap house. My favorite movie of all time is "Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day Lewis. Second best is "Titanic" and third "Passion of the Christ". I am an avid reader and I love talking about the books I’ve read, especially romance novels. I will warn you though: I am prone to rants and raves about a lot of things!
