Wild, Wild Rake by Janna MacGregorPublication Date: February 25, 2020 St. Martin’s Press eBook & Paperback; 368 Pages Series: The Cavensham Heiresses, Book #6 Genre: Historical Romance Her first marriage was an epic fail. Lady Avalon Warwyk never did love her husband. Arrogant, selfish, and cruel, it’s a blessing when she’s widowed and left to raise her son all by herself. Finally, Avalon can live freely and do the work she loves: helping fallen women become businesswomen. She’s lived these past ten years with no desire to remarry―that is, until Mr. Devan Farris comes to town. Can he convince her to take another chance at happily ever after? Devan Farris―charming vicar, reputed rake, and the brother of Avalon’s son’s guardian―is reluctantly sent to town to keep tabs on Avalon and her son. Devan wishes he didn’t have to meddle in her affairs; he’s not one to trod on a woman’s independent nature and keen sense of convictions. But she’ll have nothing to do with vicar with a wild reputation―even though he’s never given his heart and body to another. If only he could find a way to show Avalon who he really is on the inside―a good, true soul looking for its other half. But how can prove that he wants to love and care for her…until death do they part?
Praise for the Cavensham Heiresses Series“Full-bodied romance…with intelligence and heart.”―New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell “Sparkling…MacGregor brings England’s Regency era to life.” ―Publishers Weekly “Beautifully defined, exceptionally appealing.” ―Booklist (starred review) on The Bad Luck Bride

Well this book started off with a bang. What initially drew me in was it’s easy and engaging writing style. The kind that captivates from the very first sentence and continues to enthrall throughout the novel.
There’s a scene at the very beginning that sets up the rest of the story and that scene utterly destroyed me. In a matter of two pages I was beyond livid and so wholly invested that anyone would have had to pry the book from my dead body to get me to stop reading. It was fast paced with never a dull moment and honestly one of the best love stories I’ve read in a while.
Regency romances, in general, are a new love of mine and this was one surpassed my expectations. It checked all my marks (and then some) and I cannot recommend it enough. If you’re looking for a wholesome, endearing, and charming romance with charismatic characters and a riveting love story then it doesn’t get any better than ‘Wild Wild Rake’!
