Overview

A woman out of time.
A man stifled by propriety.
A nemesis determined to take her away.
A brother to the rescue.

How will a powerful Duke deal with a woman who doesn't know her place? How will a woman used to the 21st century survive in time where she is considered property?

THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE Part two finds Francine in the world of the Duke of Roxleigh. The clashing of worlds in first installment of the completely revised novel continues as Francine finds her footing, discovers secrets about her elusive host, and learns more about herself than she ever thought possible.

Francine Larrabee woke up on the wrong side of the century. She was fairly certain she went to sleep in her own comfy bed, but she doesn’t quite seem to be there now. Only adding to her problems is that she has no voice, is constantly being glowered at by a large, stunning man who is obsessed with propriety, and she is apparently betrothed to another horrid little man, determined to ruin her, and any other girls that get in his way.
How does she find herself in the past, when she couldn’t even find herself in her present? How does a self sufficient businesswoman survive in a time when women were still considered property for the whole of their lives and what is she going to do with this man who draws her to him so fiercely.

Editorial Reviews

Romancing Rakes For The Love Of Romance - Kati R
"Jenn LeBlanc is a TEASE! And that picture, oh just about died! " -Jamie
"Oh you guys, this Rake and Recluse Redux is such a fabulous idea. Additional scenes, gorgeous never-before-seen photos and endings that keep you coming back for the next installment." -Kati
SOS Aloha - Kim SOS
"LeBlanc’s pictures are stimulating but I still appreciate her gorgeous writing. She serves up a delicacy of a budding romance with enchanting spices."
Law's Loves - Lela W
"Mrs. LeBlanc is a skilled story teller. Not only do you become immersed in the story, the lives of the characters..."
Asian Cocoa
"I said in my review of part one that this is like reading/watching a drama series and this “episode” was full of surprises. We meet some new characters that add some fun to the book. The sexual tension between Gideon and Francine has been ratcheted up as well. The cliff-hanger scene left me wanting more. Oh and the last photo of a naked Gideon in bed was very swoon worthy."
Book Savvy Babe - Heather B
“The pull between the pair is electric, they communicate with every look, touch, and glance.”

Meet the Author

I have several constants in life that define me:
Colorado, Canon, CJ, kids and curls.
Born and raised in a household of other people’s children in this beautiful state —very nearly with a camera in hand— I never left. I started my own family, got used to the curls, went to college, built a CJ, and started a business, all with a camera in hand.
I always had another passion; storytelling born from daydreams and nightmares. My fingers were never as quick as my mind, and no amount of practice got them there, so it was difficult and frustrating to have this inside me. When my second daughter was born her inherent traits kept me pinned— my only escape the keyboard. Spending my days in parenting chat rooms I got highly adept with one-handed typing and I can still type just about as fast with one hand as I can with two. It’s a great talent to have when engrossed in a scene and in need of a hit of caffeine. I recently finished my first novel but I quickly realized: I was born a photographer.
From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of MY book my control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into this completely new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers.
I live and thrive off chaos and the constant flow of the creative process. I wear shorts and flip-flops year-round —much to the chagrin of my friends and family— and I am currently working on the illustrations for my second novel.

    Part Two Left me Speechless

    Found is part two of six in The Rake and the Recluse serial and it was awesome! Gideon is now at Roxeigh House, his home in London, taking care of business affairs. We are introduced to his younger brother, Lord Peregrine Trumball, Viscount Roxleigh. While Gideon is a bit uptight his younger brother, Perry is playful and doesn't let Gideon take himself too seriously. Gideon starts to open up about his true feelings for Francine and once the business in London is taken care of the two brothers set off to return to Gideon's house in the country. We also learn a little more about Francine's back story as a foster child. And in this installment Madeleine's parents arrive in England from France looking for their daughter. The Larrabee's take one look at Francine and are convinced that she is Madeleine. Francine adamantly refuses to leave with them as of course she does not recognize them at all. Monsieur Larrabee demands that she be returned to them so that she can be married to an evil Earl that she has been betrothed to since birth. But this betrothal is not as innocent as it seems and both Gideon and Perry decide to make a deal with the Frenchman to make sure Francine never has to marry Lord Hepplewort.

    I said in my review of part one that this is like reading/watching a drama series and this "episode" was full of surprises. We meet some new characters that add some fun to the book. The sexual tension between Gideon and Francine has been ratcheted up as well. The cliff-hanger scene left me wanting more. Oh and the last photo of a naked Gideon in bed was very swoon worthy. The author, Jenn LeBlanc, was very mean to torture us like that. I am eagerly awaiting Taken: The Rake and the Recluse: Part Three to see what happens next and I suspect the photos are going to get a bit sexier. Part three is due to release on January 17, 2012.
