Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country with no suitors and no prospects on the horizon except, perhaps, the exasperating—although admittedly handsome—guest of her father. She’s looking for any excuse to go to London to meet more eligible men.
Trevor has a problem…
Trevor Anaedsley’s grandfather has cut off his funds until such time as he gets engaged. Trevor escapes to the country—ostensibly to visit his old tutor, Mr. Smithson, but actually to duck his creditors—where he meets Smithson’s lovely daughter, Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him—but the lady has ideas of her own, and Trevor’s going to have to measure up…
REVIEW: Here come Rakes and Rogues, a brand new series from one of my favorite authors, Jade Lee.
I can’t tell you how welcome this story was to my Jade-ed [pun intended] palate! From the first paragraph I knew this was going to be one fun read and I was right.
When you put a handsome hero as charming, smart and a bit naïve together with an outspoken, highly intelligent and unique woman, you can always expect sparks to fly, and that’s what these two bring to this story.
My favorite part of this story, besides the wonderful characterization of the main characters, was the dialogue. It was filled with wit and humor that had me laughing out loud.
I honestly dreaded the end because I so much enjoyed the unfolding of the romance.
Once more Jade Lee delivers on all three “P”points that are a must for me, besides the characterization: plot, pace and passion. She really knows how to marry the sweet with sensual, leaving me satiated at the end of the story.
I’m eagerly looking forward to reading this series and hope you’ll join me.
