THE IRISH RAKE
Genre: Regency Period, England
One of the Regency genre's premier storytellers enchants us with a deceptively simple tale of a young innocent and a notorious rake.
Even Miss Gillian Edwards realizes that a rake as infamous as the Marquess of Clare could not possibly be interested in her. Still, she cannot hide her fascination with the handsome lord. Then, after a carriage accident leaves her unconscious, it is to his home that the rake bears her comatose body. And in the darkness of the night, as she lies in pain and suffering, two kindred souls finally meet.
But nothing can come of it. After all, she has a handsome and wealthy suitor, and he has no intention of ever marrying. Against all odds, however, magic happens.
Ms. Lange brings an exquisite freshness to a favorite Regency theme, creating a delicately beautiful love story full of power and grace. (May, 224 pp., $4.99)
