I know Gideon wants to make it all "respectable" but I'm with Francine, do it already! I'm enjoying this ride. Though I very much dislike Hepplewort.

***original review and pictures posted at Romancing Rakes***

Kati: ZOMG! I somehow misplaced the first email that contained TRATR part 3. Don’t look at me like that, all Gideon glarey-eyed. I had to ask Jenn to resend and she also gave me The Gideon. But let me tell you. Forget about flipping through and looking at the pictures! It started off with an almost ruination and a half naked Roxleigh was pretty easy on the eyes at 7 in the morning.

Did you flip through or did the first page keep you

*I received this book for review from author. Since The Rake and a Recluse is a serial series, I have read and reviewed parts 1-3 together. Read the full review at: Book Savvy Babe*

Review Thoughts on the series:

Jenn LeBlanc’s photography interspersed throughout the story only enhances the story. Illustrated novels are a very new concept (as far as I know, unique to Jenn LeBlanc), but with both visually stunning photographs and impressive writing Jenn LeBlanc has created a new format for a

If you are not following along with Jenn LeBlanc’s book, what are you waiting on?!? You have got to read this story!

What can I say about TAKEN, the third installment of her unique, six book, illustrated romance The Rake and the Recluse serial? Several things come to mind. Before I start, there is one key suggestion for enjoying this story to its fullest and that is the books should be read in order. You cannot just jump into book three and know what is going on, you need to start at the

This serial novel needs to read in order. This review may contain spoilers.

Taken is part three in The Rake and the Recluse serial novel. This part begins with a great love scene between Gideon and Francine that was full of sensuality. I was surprised by Francine’s boldness and even more shocked by Gideon’s act of self-control in the midst of such wicked temptation. This scene was sexual tension written to perfection.

The romance intensifies as

Roxleigh is still getting to know Francine. Her "parents" come and a new agreement is drawn up between them and Gideon. Hepplewort kidnaps Francine and holds her at his estate. His mother's an SOB. I like the characters. Still problems with transitioning between scenes but I'm getting used to it.

Oh My. I am soooo LOVING this series!! Why haven't I read this sooner!! On to four right after my review book. But, I soooo can't wait. I will review 1-3 & then 4-6.

Such a great series!

Cliffhanger! Good thing I already have the next one. One note to the author... the pictures you have inserted into the story are wholly unnecessary. I find that my imagination is much better than those given to us. They are very distracting right in the middle of reading.
