Overview

All of London knows Phillip Montcalm’s name. It’s on the lips of a different lady every night… 
So it’s no wonder he’s called the Lord of the Rakes. Rumor has it he’s the most dangerous seducer in the city, with quite the extensive list of conquests. Talk of his prowess as a lover and his ingenuity in the bedroom are enough to make even the most prudish of ladies succumb to temptation. But as of late, Phillip has found himself a bit bored. Until he sets his eyes on a fiery newcomer.
 
New to independence and London, gorgeous heiress Lady Caroline Delamarre wants to make the most of her life. And when Phillip meets her gaze, she knows the perfect place to start: in his arms…and in his bed. But what begins as a long night of breathtaking passion leads to more than the two bargained for. Haunted by troubled pasts and inescapable family entanglements, each of them must decide if they can risk a gamble on what might be true love.

Wilde’s strong and spicy debut reveals the vulnerability of the Regency era’s women. When Lady Caroline Delamarre learns that she is the sole beneficiary of a trust from her mother, she decides to move to London against the express wishes of her domineering brother, Jarrett, Earl Keenseford. Once in London, Caroline meets Philip Montcalm, the Lord of the Rakes. Their physical attraction is intensified by subtle glances, as the jaded Philip succumbs to Caroline’s innocent seduction. While their affair is fueled by lust, Philip is surprised to learn that he truly enjoys Caroline’s company and regrets that they cannot appear as a couple when out in public. As Caroline uncovers the intelligent man beneath Philip’s rakish exterior, he begins questioning his hedonistic existence. The allure of their sensual encounters is enhanced by the great depth of emotions revealed by these expertly crafted and unforgettable characters. Only a few anachronisms mar this attention-grabbing novel. (Feb.)
