The Art of Taming a Rake is the story a rake falling for a disgraced virgin is a tried and true formula in historical romances. Earl of Traherne, Quinn Wilde a misunderstood libertine rake with a scandalous reputation who has been attracted to our heroine Venetia Stratham ever since she was engaged to marry one of his best friends. A friend who was a rake of the first order who broke Venetia’s heart when he showed up at the church fresh from his mistress bed and humiliated Venetia on her wedding day. Two years after her banishment by her family Venetia hears that Quinn has taken an interest in her sister and goes to a brothel/gaming den to warn Quinn away from her innocent sister. After their interlude they sneak out the back door of the gaming den where they are attacked by someone trying to kill Quinn and the story take off at a run. Someone is trying to kill him, Venetia is mixed up in the middle of it all trying to save her sister and ends up married to Quinn in a marriage of convenience in order to avoid another scandal that would harm her sister’s chance for a happy marriage. Both Venetia and Quinn are reluctant to trust anyone let alone let themselves fall in love. The book was entertaining with funny banter and sexual tension between the characters as their feeling grow stronger as they worry about each other’s safety and they tried to figure out who was out to kill Quinn and why. Being married to a Wilde is living with danger around every corner they finally realized that they were indeed the perfect match. The book was great fun to read and it was hard to put the book down!!!
I received a free ARC copy of the book from NetGallery in exchange for an honest review.
