    An enjoyable regency romance

    In 1801, Miranda Mabberly has some doubts about her upcoming marriage to Lord Oxley as he and her parents fail to defend her honor besmirched by her future mother-in-law. However, things are taken out of her hands when notorious rake Lord John Tremont blatantly accosts and kisses her at the opera. The nuptials are over and her parents blame Miranda, completely cutting her off...................... After five years of begging her parents to let her come home and learning her mother died without anyone bothering to inform her, Miranda writes off her father. She takes a job as decorum teacher Miss Jane Porter at Miss Emily¿s Establishment for the Education of Genteel Young Ladies. After five years there she has inherited a small fortune so she plans to leave, but not before John visits the school to escort his disgraced niece home. He runs into Jane, but fails to recognize her though she knows him. Edged on by three matchmaking youngsters, John begins to court Jane who rejects the advances of a rake though they soon fall in love, but to persuade her remains impossible................... THIS RAKE OF MINE is an enjoyable regency romance that in many ways is typical of the sub-genre with a rake getting his comeuppance through love. The story line is refreshed by Miranda who gives up on those who should have rallied around her when she concludes that she will always be held culpable for the actions of John. This gives her the courage to move on and not to fear challenging the aristocracy including John and his older brother. Fans will enjoy this fine historical pot boiler starring an admirable heroine and the wastrel she reforms.......... Harriet Klausner

    I Also Recommend:

    Wonderful book!

    Elizabeth Boyle never disappoints, all her books are wonderful, exiting and very romantic. She is one of my favorite authors.
    I recommend these books bellow but all of her books are great.
    Here are some of the others:
    Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress
    Confessions Of A Little Black Gown
    Stealing the Bride
    It Takes A Hero
    I could keep going but you can go to her website and check it out.
    I hope we'll have Elizabeth for a long time. :)

    This lively chronicle picks up on the ramifications of the public kiss/grope between redhead Miranda Mabberly and the very drunk Lord Jack Tremont (Something about Emmaline)

    Initially the kiss served to save 16-yr.-old Miranda from an unwanted marriage: but her reputation was ruined, she was sent away, denounced by her irate family, and encouraged to change her name. Now 9 years later "Jane Porter" is a sobersides resigning as a teacher in a lady's school when she literally bumps into Jack again and sparks abound. Both of them never forgot that kiss. What she learns in this book is that Jack had offered for her and that she "died" (!!!). Jack, too, is not what he still seems - the eternal rake - guilty at having caused Miranda's death, he has joined his family in undercover work for the Crown. A jolly band of young matchmakers: twins Tally and Felicity aka "the Duchess", and Pippin, are persistent and inventive at keeping Jack and "Miss Porter" in each other's company. Some sly doings by the "late" Aunt Josephine and Jack's butler and steward, keep Miranda and Jack safe in each other's arms, and the coast of England safe once again from French spies.
