Read full description of the books:
What a Rake Wants by Maggi Anderson is a 2014 Knox Robinson Publishing release. I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes.
This was a light regency period romance with a little intrigue and adventure on the side. Althea is widowed and frankly she is relieved. Her husband was not a tender man in the bedroom and often belittled her. Althea has been left with a piece of property and not much else after her husband's death, but Owltree Cottage was hers and she wanted to retire there in peace. Alas, that was not to be. When Sir Crowethorne explains to Althea that he intends to have her property unless she agrees to become his mistress she decides to fight back with all her might.
Enter, Kieran Flynn, an Irishman, Lord Montsimon, King George's investigator. He has been commissioned to keep tabs on Althea, as her late husband appears to have involved in some kind of plot, and the idea of seducing her is part of his plan. After all he has a reputation for being a notorious rake.
While I have personally chosen to reduce the number of regency romances I read, I couldn't help but try this one. So, I will be honest and say there is nothing in this one that hasn't been done already, but I did find the story delightful and entertaining. I enjoyed the dialogue between Flynn and Althea, the adventures they had and the mystery of just why on earth Althea's humble estate suddenly became such a hot commodity.
Flynn's insight into Althea's reluctance to become involved with another man, and few big revelations about her former husband, helped her realize that all men and all relationships were not bad and marriage can be a wonderful thing. Flynn had the patience of Job sometimes trying to convince Althea they would be good together, but he allowed her to come to this realization on her own. This is a quick, light and easy read with a really nice ending, perfect for a little escapism.
