Elizabeth Boyle is one of the leading authors in historical romance. She brings us yet another tale of love, romance and passion with her newest book, This Rake of Mine.

Miranda Mabberly has just been ruined. Completely and irrevocably ruined and by just one kiss from the most notorious rake in London, Lord Jack Tremont. Humiliated and her betrothal broken, Miranda escapes to Miss Emeryís Establishment for the Education of Genteel Young Ladies as a teacher of decorum, she has changed her name to Miss Porter and for nine years has tried to forget his passionate kisses and the fact that he mistook her for his mistress leaving her to pick up her shredded life and flee.

Lord Jack Tremont has never forgotten the night that he kissed Miranda Mabberly, how could he when that was the beginning of his downfall. After the scandal, he was forced to leave London to while away his days at Thistleton Park and try to salvage some of his dignity. But when three young ladies and their very proper teacher appear on his doorstep during a storm, his world is turned upside down yet again. Who is this red-haired creature and why has she been sent her to torture his dreams along with his soul?

You just canít go wrong with an Elizabeth Boyle book! Fun, fast, breathtaking and truly romantic are only a few of the words to describe her writing. Miranda and Jack are so right for each other. Yes, he did ruin her, but he did try to make amends, only to be turned away. And yes, Miranda has been hiding in Miss Emeryís school trying to forget the scandal that kiss had caused all the while wishing only bad things to come onto Jackís head. But throw in three matchmaking misses, all on the verge of womanhood and you have a fun love story that will keep you glued to the pages. Oh, and letís not forget the mystery in the story also, but I wonít tell you about that, youíll have to read it for yourself!

Happy reading!!!
