Romance Book Review: Once a Rake

All he wants is her help . . .
Colonel Ian Ferguson may be a rake, but he’s no traitor. Accused of trying to kill the Duke of Wellington, the disgraced Scotsman is now a fugitive-from the law, the army, and the cunning assassin who hunts him. Wounded and miles from his allies, Ian finds himself at the mercy of an impoverished country wife. The spirited woman is achingly beautiful . . . and hiding some dangerous secrets of her own.

All she needs is his heart . . .
She was a child nobody wanted. Now for Lady Sarah Clarke, holding on to her vanished husband’s crumbling estate is her final chance to earn respectability. She knows that hiding the devastatingly handsome Ferguson will jeopardize her home. Common sense demands that she turn him in. But a single, delirious kiss shatters her resolve . . . and awakens a passion that neither of them can escape.

My Review of Once A Rake

This was a really fun book to read! The book is one in a series called Drakes Rakes and it is right on spot with the other books I have read in this series. Ian is a lovable character who you know is trying to do the right thing, but he just can’t seem to do it. Sarah thinks he is hiding something, but she’s really the one with some secrets that she’s working so hard to keep. It makes for a very fun and adventurous read with a few twist and turns you would never expect.

The writing in this book creates a very vivid picture of the characters and the scenery. I was really very happy with how my mind made it more into a movie, then a book, something rare in romance novels, but a skill that Eileen Dreyer is really amazing at.
