Karla A little bit of my soul dies each time I see titles like that. :P (Yes, it's me. New avatar for awhile.)


message 2: by Karla (new)

Karla And why hasn't there been a book simply called "RAKE"? Or maybe there has... It seems like such a f*cking no-brainer.


Tammy Walton Grant HAHAHA! You're so right. This is a mouldie-oldie (lookit the hockey hair on the Hero!) so I'm not expecting much.

Who's the new you? Beautifully tied cravat, I might add. :)

Karla Amazing to think that a book from 2000 would have such outdated hairstyles. Time just marches on by and leaves me behind. :D

The new me is John McCullough, hottie Irish immigrant actor from the 19th century. Died insane from syphillis. All the abject and tragic misery in Marilyn Harris' Eden series has me thinking about miserable & tragic people IRL. :P


Tammy Walton Grant Insane from syphillis, you say? Capital! I think that's what would happen to RL rakes if they weren't reformed soon enough. ;)

I'm kind of partial to hockey hair (that's a mullet up here in Canada, btw). Business up front, paaaaarrrty at the back.

Audrey Sorry, couldn't help but see the thing about a book called "RAKE." And um...had to share this one: The Rake by Mary Jo Putney

Don't know if "THE Rake" counts...?


message 7: by Karla (new)

Karla That one will do until someone decides to get all daring and drop the subject article. :P

Audrey Notably, the description capitalizes "Rake."

"Fate has given a disgraced Rake one final chance to redeem himself--by taking his place as the rightful master of an ancestral estate. But nothing prepares him for his shocking encounter with a beautiful lady who has fled a world filled with betrayal. Now he will awaken in her a passion more powerful than anything she has ever known--a passion that can doom or save them both if they dare to believe."


Anna (Bobs Her Hair) Going back to the cover model's mullet. Doesn't he look like Patrick Swayze from the movie Roadhouse? It released in 1989, which still doesn't explain why a book published in 2000 has this rake sporting the Kentucky Waterfall hairdo. So many names for this 'do. LOL

He DOES, now that you mention it! (Loved that movie, loved Patrick Swayze)

Kentucky Waterfall?? That's hilarious!

Have you read that one, Audrey?


message 12: by Karla (new)

Karla THAT is some hockey hair, my friend.


And in case they block it eventually, just do a Google Image search of "Jaromir Jagr."


Tammy Walton Grant Weren't the late 80s/early 90s AWESOME? ;D


message 14: by Karla (new)

Karla I want them to happen AGAIN. And I want to be the same age I am now. :P


Tammy Walton Grant LOL!

And I want to be the same age I am now.

I was going to ask you why, but it just occurred to me that you would have been like 11 years old then. :)

Karla Graduated from high school in 1993. No fucking way I want to re-do those hellish years from 1987 onward.


Tammy Walton Grant I graduated in 1985 (you whippersnapper). I was bar-hopping, smoking cigarettes and having recreational sex from 1987-93. Ah, the memories. ;)

Say, aren't you working on a time machine to get at that "Fluff" stuff for $1 a gallon? You call me when you get that up and running - we'll backcomb our hair, put on pounds of makeup and acid-washed jeans and head on back to 1989.


message 18: by Karla (new)

Karla Schweet! I'm all over it. :D

Not yet, but I have the original traditional Regency version, The Rake and the Reformer, in print and waiting on my TBR.

The Rake and the Reformer (Super Regency, Signet) by Mary Jo Putney

Ah, yes. When historicals were $2.99. *sigh* Although I'll pass on the high school years. BUT if you take a time machine, would you pick up Milli Vanilli? he he


Tammy Walton Grant Haha! And MC Hammer. :)

Audrey A Beginner's Guide to Rakes --> Speaking of titles...

A Beginner's Guide to Rakes by Suzanne Enoch


Tammy Walton Grant Isn't that a terrible title? I read a friend's review (Catherine) that made it sound really good, especially if you like Suzanne Enoch.
