Lord Stephen Brookes is the prince of pleasure, the duke of decadence-and it seems his exploits have finally caught up with him. When Stephen comes to Amelia seeking refuge, she can’t deny him . . . or the intense desire he sparks.

Now, he will do whatever it takes to convince her that a rake really can change his ways.

My Rating: 5 Roses

Totally sweet and lovely! To All the Rakes I've Loved Before was a wonderful historical romance novella. I loved it!

Amelia was a great heroine. She was so likable and an overall lovely character. She was a tough one, to go through the kind of embarrassment of a broken engagement leaves. I really liked her.

Stephen was such a sweetheart! I adored him. He was so sweet and adorable and impossible not to fall for. He might have been a rake, but, when he fell, he fell hard. And it was so sweet.

The romance was adorable. Amelia and Stephen were totally sweet together. And the chemistry between them was on fire. These two had sparks to spare. They were a wonderful couple.

The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. This story was the kind of sweet, light read that gets you smiling. And the ending was so cute. I loved it!

To All the Rakes I've Loved Before was a brilliant historical romance novella. I completely and totally adored it! Romance lovers, if you want a quick, light, sweet read, then you have to read this book.

Today, I have a historical romance that sounds great: Myriah Fire by Claudy Conn. Go forth and get it for free!

It started with a stolen kiss …
Fiery Myriah Whitney is wild of nature, contrary, and independent. But when her father catches her kissing the handsome Sir Roland (how else is she to determine if he is the one who will make her feel thunder and lightning, hear bells and music?), he declares that her days of headstrong independence are over. She will, he commands, announce her engagement to Sir Roland—immediately.

But in an age where marriages are about alliances rather than affection, practicality not passion, Myriah wants more—she wants to fall in love. And she does not love Sir Roland. So she runs away to her grandfather with her faithful manservant, Tabson, at her side.

A wrong turn in the fog, however, leads to the discovery of an injured young man, and before she knows it Myriah is caught up in world of intrigue and secrets. And when she meets the young man’s older brother, the mysterious Lord Kit Wimborne, the sparks fly. Their first encounter—in his bed, both of them naked, no less!—is an explosion of wills, and it is what finally set Myriah on fire.

She has, it seems, finally found her thunder and lightning…
