What to get for the girl who has everything? An unattainable rake.

Bored, beautiful and determined to ruin herself, Lady Lucy Flynn is used to getting everything she wants. But for the first time, the one thing she wants above all else is the love of a man: Lord Dean Warren, Earl of Winchester, injured and lately returned from East India. Unfortunately, the scurrilous earl refuses to see her as anything more than a pampered, privileged, innocent girl. But Lucy is not one to give up so easily.

A jaded rake, Dean enjoys travel and taking his pleasure where he may, determined never to return to Society’s constricting realm. Though tempting, a lady like Lucy does not belong amidst his sordid circle of paramours. A harsh lesson in love from his earlier years convinces Dean he must push Lucy away and prove to her that he’s the wrong man for her in every way.

But the closer he gets—and the harder he tries to push—the deeper he falls under her spell.

It’s been a while but Quince reminder me why I love historical romances. This is the first chance I have gotten to read one of her books and it definitely won’t be the last.   As who doesn’t like a dashing rake hero and a heroine who know wants she wants.

It’s the perfect pairing and the wooing is fun and scandalous. It allows for a real bond to form and show the characters to their strengths and their flaws. This  historical romance has the right balance of scandal, drama and fun. Best of all its standalone and allows readers to enjoy their story fully without worrying about other characters.

 

Lucy is definitely ahead of her times as a young women in this century. She know how to use her brash and charm. Whilst her parents may see her as troublesome at times, she knows what she wants in a future. I loved the family bonds in this family , they have genuine affection for each other and it shows throughout the story.    It made  quite impression and allows for the stark contrast with Dean whose family situation.  Dean reflects on this quite a bit as he comes to terms with things and I like the depth he had, showing that he wasn’t a rake without some hope

Dean came off as a rake who heart was broken but even he wasn’t immune to the charms of Lucy. I loved that she was the one to make the first move and set the tone.  She made it quite the game and I like how it too while to build and had some mishaps along the way.  The supporting character of Thea and  Jonathan add to the richness of this story and hint at the future.

Dean and Lucy story is one fitting for time and whilst it on the tamer side for ages. It builds characters and allows to see how Quinn crafts her characters. These two are fitting members of the ton and I loved how thing turned out even though it may not happened how Lucy planned.  It’s beautiful fun historical romance and one that any historical lover must read.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties. After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance. Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content.
