Ruination is another sensational installment in the already exceptional The Rake and the Recluse Series. I was not sure, when I first began the series, if the serial nature of the novellas would enhance or detract from the story line.

Each serial novella is more detailed, better edited, and gives more depth to the story.

Perfection. I love all the anachronistic moments Francine has. I loved the ruination then obvious, but beautiful wedding between the two. And now I must find out what up with Perry!

Jamie: Yay! I was so happy to find Ruination in my inbox. After the way Taken ended I was on pins and needles. Plus, you know its going to be good if it’s titles Ruination.

Kati: So true! I woke up, checked my email and saw Ruination in my inbox, started reading and continued reading on the treadmill. This part is DANGEROUS! A friendly PSA from yours truly: When reading any parts of THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE, make sure your feet is planted on solid ground or your butt planted/>

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

Ruination is part four in The Rake and the Recluse serial novel. The story starts right where part three leaves off. Francine has been kidnapped by the reprehensible villain, Hepplewort. At the urging of his equally disgusting, mother, Hepplewort plans to wed Francine and keep her captive against her will. Jenn LeBlanc did a brilliant job of making me hate these antag

Gideon rescues Francine and makes plans to wed her. Very intense opening. I liked it and I liked how it ended.
