From the first page I was quickly immersed into the story, The Rake, and could not put the book down if I had even wanted too. Suzanne Enoch will steal your breath away with her wit and story dialogue through the entire book.
Lady Georgiana Halley was not an innocent as six years that was taken by a man she thought she loved. That love left as she found the act was because of a wager. Georgiana though will come back with advenges and take her revenge on Dare as she will seduce him, break his heart, and teach him a valuable lesson.
Viscount Dare wanted Georgiana but after he wronged her it was hard to be in the same room as they always fought. But fate gave him a chance to try again and it seems this time she was willing with some seduction. Dare will get to Georgiana but things turn as seduction is not the only thing on this mind.
The Rake is the first of the trilogy series Lessons in Love. I loved how Enoch created the three friends who are out to get the three of the worst rakes in London. The story plot was humorous and entertaining which will keep the reader involved all through the entire book.
I love Georgiana’s character she is feisty and fights tooth and nail to stay indifferent. The passion between her and Dare sizzled the pages and their playful and angry banter spiced up the pages.
Dare was fantastic as a rake but what made him great was his family and how he had changed. His family was out of the norm and funny to read about. I hope that Enoch gives more to the family in another story they deserve to be talked about. And if she did already I guess I will find out as this is my first book I have read from her.
I liked the underlying issue which was trust on Georgiana’s part and it was refreshing to read she did not abandon everything that meant something just to be with Dare again. She had a mission even as she was swayed.
I am looking forward to continuing the series Lesson in Love and finding out more stories from Enoch.
