Please do not give up on this book after reading the prologue !

I nearly did that. The entire prologue sounds like a beginning of a silly story and I have to fight against the urge to put the book down before I begin the next page. But what happens thereafter is a rather sexy, sometimes humourous, at times warm-hearted plot. The hero and heroine are at odds with each other for one reason - Georgianna cannot forgive the man who has won her heart in a wager while Tristan seems to be quite enjoying himself at her expense by irritating her.

Is he a rake ? Perhaps but even if he is, he's a lovable one. From the affectionate love he has shown towards his aunts, the responsibility he has taken care of his property (and debts he has 'inherited' together with his title), to the brotherly concern showed clearly in the close bond he shares with his younger siblings, this is a hero you cannot dislike. In comparison, Georgianna isn't as charismatic as our hero but rest assured, you will like her fair enough. The senuality rating is quite high, mainly for the occasions and situations they are in rather than the descriptions of the physical acts.

I really hope Enoch will write about the rest of the Carroway brothers, especially Bit. Now, that's quite an anticipation !

Reviewer Comments:

Six years ago, Viscount Dare made a wager involving Georgiana. She had succumbed to him thinking his intentions were honorable when they were not. To Dare, the wager was a joke, and he had not even spread humors about what happened between them.

Now, Georgiana had every intention of teaching him a lesson—the lesson of courting someone and leading them on. Dare is reluctant to marry any lady, but for the sake of keeping his family name alive and paying debts, he courts Lady Amelia. Little did he know the disaster in marrying the young girl and the hunger of wanting and loving Georgiana. Matters of the heart are sometimes confusing, sometimes turning you inside and out and upside down. Dare and Georgiana spent a lot of time together—they were either speaking civilly or mostly playing a game. The game is over; Georgiana’s heart and Dare’s heart came together and forgetting current courtships with other people, they marry each other.

”The Rake” is a ten (if we were talking about volcanoes) in sensuality. It’s in the words especially, the looks, and then action. The places they were together—next room to other people, same room (but hiding) with other people…they can’t keep their hands off each other. For historical, there is some content pertaining to this. Overall, it’s a ten. It is an easy read full of action of one type or another. The humour in “The Rake” I found to be when they “play the game” with each other— besting each other in this game.
