WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS
In the second of the Sinful Scoundrels series, Dreiling brings the Regency to life in a wonderfully evocative fashion. With believable, intelligent characters — including an honorable rake and a strong-willed lady — this moving tale, fraught with sexual tension, hits just the right notes.
His father has decided it is time for inveterate rake Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, to wed and threatens to sell the ancestral home if he doesn’t. Colin decides to woo his childhood friend, Lady Angeline Brenham. When Colin informs her of his father’s edict, divorcée Angeline willingly offers her services as architect and interior designer to restore his new home and make it bride-worthy. As they work on the restoration, their love for one another becomes overwhelming. It is only after a few of Colin’s secrets come to light that Angeline is free to love. (FOREVER, Apr., 416 pp., $8.00)
