Edwina Hargrove is a very modern woman (for the Victorian era!) She rides bicycles (scandalous!) and longs for independence and adventure, but the closest she ever comes is using her uncanny code-breaking skills to decipher letters from her brothers and to decipher coded messages in the personal ads in the newspapers. Until the day she decodes a message from one of the ton’s most notorious rakes, advertising for a good woman to draw into his debauchery. Edwina, along with her friends, form The Rake Patrol to put paid to this cad’s intentions by diverting women away from the disreputable Ashton Trewelyn. Then it’s Edwina herself who falls into his hands. And oh, what sexy, sensuous, compelling hands they are! Ms. MacMeans has a wonderful knack for getting her characters into every sort of madcap adventure (and out of their petticoats and drawers) on the way to a tear-inducing happily ever after, and does so with delicious details and terrific humor. With lively discussions (and demonstrations!) of Japanese erotica, and the possibly nefarious activities of a secret society to be uncovered, the only question is, can a lively code-breaker crack the secrets of a wounded hero’s heart? All I will say is, oh my! And oh, YUM! And I can hardly wait for book two of the Rake Patrol’s adventures!

Ashton Trewelyn returned home a changed man. He's not going to waste his life. He's a reformed man. Edwina Hargrove and her friends have formed the Rake Patrol to stop men like him from seducing unsuspecting women. Now he finds that he needs Edwina. This bluestocking is skilled with codes. Can the reformed rake and this "modern" woman find a future? This is an entertaining and solid story that is filled with romance and a dash of mystery. The characters are compelling and the dialogue is sharp and witty. Edwina is a feisty and intelligent woman. Ashton wants her. The attraction and desire between these two is amazing. They are working to solve the cypher and to learn more about the Guardians. This is a wonderful romance. I was hooked from the first page. Edwina is a compelling character that I wanted to know more about. I'm looking forward to more stories of the Rake Patrol.
