Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
When Lady Rebecca Eversley is left ravished by the Earl of Newthorpe and facing ruination, she has the choice to point her pretty little nose in the air and face the gossips of the Ton or scurry off to the country to live out her life as an old maid. When she meets Lord Daniel Ramsey, a notorious rake, she decides on the former course of action.
Daniel has been given an ultimatum, marry before his father dies or lose the majority of his inheritance money. Rebecca seems the perfect candidate, especially once rumours about her start to circulate in the drawing rooms of Mayfair.
When Newthorpe is found dead on the morning of their wedding, the people they care about find themselves suspects in the case. Who murdered Newthorpe and can Rebecca ever get over what he did to her?

The review --
This is a very good novel, and I enjoyed it very much. It has interesting characters and a unique take on a historical romance novel, plus, the author throws in a bit of a mystery as well. The man with the more sterling character turns out to be a louse, and the man with the reputation turns out to be the true gentleman. All in all a very good book.
