How will a powerful Duke deal with a woman who doesn't know her place?

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 woman used to the 21st century survive in time where she is considered property?


This is the FULL six-part serial novel in one edition.

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

Queen B - Lindsay B
“…Now our hero, Gideon, was delightful. He started off so starched and stuffy and damaged and reserved, but once he gave over to love, he held nothing back. He seemed to love as fearlessly as any warrior fights a battle. His interactions with his little brother were just fabulous to read. I loved them both.”
Romancing Rakes - Kati R
“1 Part Outlander+ 1 Part Jane Eyre= Me, Lost in LeBlanc™
I spent a week (yes, A WEEK) on this book. It might be mostly due to the fact that I flipped through it 8 times just drooling over the pictures. Within those 8 flip throughs, I read the story. The concept is GENIUS! I mean, who hasn’t wanted to know exactly what the author sees when she’s writing her book? Who hasn’t wondered what the hero REALLY looks like? Well, wonder
Stitch, Read, Cook. - Aislinn T
“This is a drool worth novel – in so many ways. Jenn LeBlanc is an absolutely fabulous photographer and a phenomenal writer. This books showcases both her talents.. The cherry on top of this story – a sexy male lead who just oozes sensuality – both in photographs and in the written word.”

Meet the Author

Jenn LeBlanc is an award winning photojournalist. While true, it isn't exactly what you're here for. Jenn LeBlanc is a new author and a romance photographer. Her first novel THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE, came out a year ago to no reviews and crickets in the background. A few months later, this little book started a movement. The pictures were stirring up trouble— and a legend was born. That legend was remastered and rereleased as it was meant to be with all new content, images and the previously unreleased story of The Rake in 2012. 

Last summer she met some of her readers at RomCon in Denver, and she can't wait to get together with more of them this summer and cause more mayhem. 

She can't be in the same room as firefighters, they freak her out. The stories are endless, hilarious and somewhat legendary at this point. 
The fact is, she hangs out with sexy models during the day, and writes sexy heroes during the night, and right now she is still shocked that anyone is interested in either. 

Jenn is fluent in English, snark, and knows some dirty French with the help of Google.

    Great illustrated reading

    I am not normally interested at all in time travel stories. But the illustrated part drew me to this one. The time travel stuff was really kind of in the background mostly. The story was a really nice one. A girl trying to figure out what the heck and how she got herself into such a mess. The guy trying to figure why she is so different. And what he is supposed to be doing. Pretty good. Well told. But mix it with the illustrations and it jumps to excellent. This is such a great idea. And done so well. I never have any trouble picturing a face in my own mind to go with the stories I read. But it is more than that. Its emotion and touches. I cant describe it any better. And would recommend it to anyone.
