She ran from a brute…
Fleeing violent tyranny, Prudence Merridew escapes with her beautiful younger sisters to London. One of them must marry—and fast. To act as her sisters’ chaperone, Prudence invents a secret engagement to a reclusive duke…But when the duke arrives unexpectedly in London, she needs his help to avert disaster.
...into the arms of a rake
Aristocratic Gideon, handsome, rakish and with a strong frivolous streak, casually hijacks Prudence’s game, awarding himself a stolen kiss or three along the way. Used to managing sisters and elderly men, Prudence is completely out of her depth with a charming, devious and utterly irresistible rake. And her plot goes terribly—if deliciously—awry…Taken from book blurb
I class this book as a long lost review as I have literally lost the book.
I am technically half way through reading this book but as I misplaced it a few years back, I am unable to finish it. I was fortunate enough to see Anne Gracie at a writers festival and after she talked about the romantic lead Gideon, I knew I had to purchase the book – and I did.
Sadly some time while reading it, I put it down and have never been able to find it.
I keep thinking about this book because as Anne Gracie said herself, there was something about Gideon that I just loved! I do wish that I could find this book – I have looked so much and I just know it is in the house somewhere 😅 I also know that I will one day either break down and buy it again or find it online somewhere and get the eBook copy.
I hope to one day return to The Perfect Rake so I can get the resolution I so desperately need.
