Book Review

‘To Kiss a Rake’ by Barbara Monajem

tkar bmSTORY: When a lady is abducted by mistake… 

Melinda Starling doesn’t let ladylike behavior get in the way of true love. She’s secretly assisting in an elopement . . . until she’s tossed into the waiting coach and driven away by a notorious rake.

… revenge really doesn’t pay.

Miles Warren, Lord Garrison, comes from a family of libertines, and he’s the worst of them all—or so society believes. When Miles helps a friend to run away with an heiress, it’s an entertaining way to revenge himself on one of the gossips who slandered him.

Except that he drives off with the wrong woman . . . and as if that wasn’t scandalous enough, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.

REVIEW: Melinda and Miles’s romance starts off with a monumental mistake, but its progress is swift and tantalizingly entertaining.

What I liked the most about this story is its pace. The author takes us on an adventure right from the start of this story, and she keeps the pace through some interesting developments of not just our couple but their best friends as well.

I found our heroine Melinda Starling to be tenacious, brave and a survivor. Our hero Miles Warren, Lord Garrison was a perfect man for her and I found him to be cynical only because he was burned badly by loving the wrong woman. No wonder he had trust issues!

I liked that the author had decided to minimize the obstacles our pair faced to only a few misunderstandings. More of them would have slowed the pace and diminished the integrity of the characters.

If you’re like me and crave for the Regency that is fun, entertaining and sweet, this one will fit to a tee!
