This is the cover πŸ™‚

Title: Lord of the Rakes

Author: Darcie Wilde

Published: February 4th 2014 by Berkley

Let me say this first:

This book was better than A Million Guilty Pleasures and let me tell you why:

A Million Guilty Pleasures, and this book basically have the same plot/story line, both have this:

And boy did it have a lot!!!

Both made me do this:

But the main difference between the 2 is that A Million Guilty Pleasures was a modern version of a romance, which included a whole lot of cursing, love and hate relationships, hot and steamy sex, drama, and doing stupid stuff to save your guts.
Where as Lord of the Rakes was a historical romance novel, which included less-no cursing, still hot and steamy sex (but not that much as modern romances), a little drama, poofy dresses c:, and the writing style was actually better.

-sigh- πŸ™‚

And the last thing I wanted to discuss about comparing these 2 books before I start the actual review are the covers:

This is for A Million Guilty Pleasures as you can clearly see.

And this is for Lord of the Rakes, I have no idea which cover looks better, but they both look awesome πŸ™‚

Ok, enough comparisons, let me get on with the review now πŸ™‚

In this hot and sexy novel we have Phillip Montcalm.
Phillip is a one night kind of guy, he has a different lady every night, giving them the pleasure that the lady desires, and just giving himself a day to forget, which makes him a jerk…..

Anyway, he is called my another name, and that name is….. the Lord of the Rakes!!! Ooooooh I get it now πŸ˜‰ Duuuhhh!!!!

Well, Phillip is known for being the most dangerous seducer in the city, with quite the extensive list of conquests. Talk of his prowess as a lover and his ingenuity in the bedroom are enough to make even the most prudish of ladies succumb to temptation. But as of late, Phillip has found himself a bit bored. Until he sets his eyes on a fiery newcomer. See????? Told you!!!

And this fiery newcomer happens to be (new to independence and London) the gorgeous heiress Lady Caroline Delamarre!!!!

She wants to make the most of her life. And of course when Phillip meets her gaze, she knows the perfect place to start: in his arms and in his bed. But what begins as a long night of breathtaking passion leads to more than the two bargained for.
Haunted by troubled pasts and inescapable family entanglements, each of them must decide if they can risk a gamble on what might be true love.

Ok, I’m not going to lie, but throughout the book I was annoyed, because basically the setting of this book was a bed, mixed with drama. 😦 I mean if tat would’ve happened to me, i would’ve been like this:

You see??? I think that’s pretty straightforward, but if she would’ve said no, then there wouldn’t be this book, which makes sense πŸ™‚

Recommend for: people who like to read hot and steamy sex books πŸ™‚

Yup, that’s pretty much all I can give you without spoiling it for you πŸ™‚
