Ahhh, I must admit that I've read this book several times already. I bought it on Amazon because I couldn't wait for it to be up on Barnes and Noble! But it is WORTH THE WAIT! Wow. Because I have read, many times, Rachel Van Dyken's pervious books in this series, I was familiar with Lord Rawlings and was skeptical in how she was going to turn such a, unsavory character into a redeemed man. My my, was this story amazing. Yes, he was redeemed and I ended up absolutely loving him! Abby made me laugh and it was a great story seeing how they each matured, grew and came into their own. I loved all the characters we already knew about like The Duke of Tempest and Emma, and how Rachel included them in her story. It reminded me of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton Series. She introduced some new characters and I'm already impatiently anticipating their stories! Basically, it's an amazing book. You won't regret purchasing it, in fact, purchase all three because each story only adds to the already delicious tea cake that Rachel Van Dyken wrote in Rawlings!

Right now I'm sporting a huge grin on my face. I loved this book. There were parts where the banter and witty remarks had me laughing out loud and other parts where I wanted to chuck my kindle at a stubborn Lord Rawlings, then, shortly after, chuck it at a equally stubborn Abby Gates. The love story was so much more than a, love at first sight and I'll never be the same, rendition. The depth of the characters transcended the page and you were able to see through their eyes, and feel their emotions as you blushed with them and cursed with them as well. As a huge fan of Rachel Van Dyken's I have to say she is simply getting better and better. I've not read a book yet I can compare with the depth of the character development present in "The Redemption of Lord Rawlings." The whole book was a delight to read and didn't leave me with any questions, confusion or lack of adventure and climax in the storyline, a hard feat to do! I highly recommend this book. It was passionate but tasteful, deep yet hilarious and serious but throughly delightful. What a beautiful story on how love redeems even the most wretched of rakes...

Couldn't give it 5 stars because of the typo's, many words ran together. Aside from that, I did love the book, alot of twists especially at the end. I loved Phillip, but sometimes got alittle upset with Abby and how she acted. Not sure if a man of almost 30 would have put up with her immature ways. But I would recommend this book - loved the secondary character's as well. Can't go wrong with the story, if the editting doesn't bother you.

I didn't want to put this book down. I couldn't wait to see what Abbie would do next to Phillip. She saw Phillip as he truly was and not what others said.

I tried to make it through this book, but just couldn't force myself. The story seemed to be more of an outline and felt very rushed; the female lead was simply unlikeable. I've enjoyed a couple of this author's other novellas, but not this one. Don't waste your money or your time.

Reviewed by Patti, Book provided by Astraea Press, and Review originally posted at Romancing the Book. The story of Lord Rawlings is the third book of the Renwick House series. I had never heard of the series before starting this particular book but my pleasure of it did not suffer any because I hadn’t read any of the prior titles. That being said I will now be going back and collecting the rest because I enjoyed this one so much. I want to know what happened to everyone. I am usually adamant about reading series in order so the fact that I am not ranting about it is highly unusual for me. I would like to thank Ms. Van Dyken for making it possible for me to be able to read this without feeling like I have missed something important. Lord Rawlings character is the type of man who gets me every time. The man who after years of running around and carelessly flaunting his freedom to do as he pleases, he suddenly has nothing and no one. His character responds to each challenge and learns to accept things as best he can. He made me want to save him and at the same time I was glad to see him suffer. He holds deep secrets and throughout the book they slowly come to light. I really enjoyed how the author chose to reveal them in this book. Sometimes the methods used by authors are too harsh or too obvious. I felt this time they were delivered in a very smooth and seamless style. Abigail Gates wants to be his wife and save him from the awful shambles he finds his life in but he only sees her as a little girl in pigtails. At first she thinks she may have finally gained his notice but then discovers that what she is doing is only causing more chaos. Throughout the story I wanted to reach into the pages and warn her of the trouble she is heading for or give her a different path to follow. I felt connected to her like a friend or a big sister and wanted to help her finally get what she feels will make her happy. I love when an author can sucker me in like that; it just makes reading a book much more fun for me. The entire book was a pleasure to read. I loved the added snippets at the beginning of each chapter they gave it just a little extra something, I started to look forward to them. There seemed to be quite a few things going on in the background that I would love to know more about. The focus and flow of the book stayed consistently on the main characters and their story. There was definite chemistry between them each time they are together. It is clear that Abigail has grown up and Philip has noticed. This is a fabulous read and I highly recommend it. I am off to find the rest of the books in the series.

I started with the "ugly Duckling Debutante" Then the other continuing two. Enjoyed all of them. Reading "Upon a Midnight Dream" now. I would like to get more of her but not a USA story. I like the "Romance Era" in England best.

Philip, Lord Rawlings, is a man in despair. In order to release his inheritance, he must marry before his next birthday, but his reputation is so bad, who would marry him. Abigail is a 9-year-old debutante in her first season, and she wants no one but Lord Rawlings. Yes, we are repeatedly assured that Abby is "but one and eight." If you are a reader who can overlook this and the numerous other mistakes in this book, you're in for a treat. The story and characters are delightful, but I had to deduct a star for the brazen lack of proofreading.
