In the fifth novel of the captivating Rhymes With Love series from New York Times bestselling author ELIZABETH BOYLE, a young woman’s hopes of a match encounter a wickedly handsome complication . . .
Lavinia Tempest has been eagerly anticipating a spectacular season. But one disastrous pile-up on the Almack’s dance floor derails all her plans. Add to that, the very stunning revelations about her mother’s scandalous past have become the ton’s latest on dits. Lavinia’s future has gone from shining bright to blackest night in one misstep.
Alaster “Tuck” Rowland admits he’s partly to blame for Lavinia’s disastrous debut. But it’s not guilt that compels him to restore her reputation. Rather, he’s placed a wager that he can make Lavinia into one of the most sought-after ladies in London. Who better than an unrepentant rake to set society astir?
Tuck’s motives are hardly noble. But in teaching the lovely Lavinia how to win any man she wants, he suddenly finds himself tangled in the last place he ever imagined: in love.

4star Historical Tutoring in Catching a Man. This read was certainly what you would expect plus more from the series Rhymes With Love by Elizabeth Boyle. There is no reason someone could not just jump right in and begin reading from this book and move forward and just circle back when time permits. Or you could even read a few chapters of this book and bounce back and read some of The Viscount Who Lived Down the Lane, Rhymes With love #4. Each book has one of the Tempest twins (Lavinia & Louisa). I had great fun reading this entanglement of Lavinia Tempest and Alaster "Tuck" Rowlan. The meeting on the dance floor was so worth it. There is so much there that you just have to read further to unravel their unique story. More @ http://mileythebookjunkie.blogspot.com/2016/01/blog-tour-knave-of-hearts-rhymes-with.html
