A Rake's Vow, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


He vowed he'd never marry: Vane Cynster always knew which way the wind was blowing, and it was headed in a marrying direction.

The other Cynster men might not mind stepping up to the altar, but Vane never wanted to be shackled to any woman, no matter how comely.

Bellamy Hall seemed like the perfect place to temporarily hide from London's husband hunters.

But when he encountered irresistible Patience Debbington, Vane realized he'd met his match and soon he had more than seduction on his mind.

She vowed no man would catch her: Patience wasn't about to succumb to Vane's sensuous propositions.

Yes, his kisses left her dizzy but he was arrogant, presumptuous...and, despite his protests, bound to be unfaithful, just like every other man.

Patience had promised herself that she'd never become vulnerable to a broken heart.

But was this one vow that was meant to be broken?

Review by

Other than the <i>massively</i> Scooby-Doo plot (which I must say I enjoyed anyway), this book is pretty good. Although it is rather cheesy, the plot is captivating and rather fun - this isn't a particularly serious story, but it's good enough to keep a reader entertained. Vane and Patience sizzle with the heat between them, and the sex scenes are quite hot as well. While this book isn't quite as good as <i>Devil's Bride</i>, I nonetheless enjoyed it a great deal.
