How to Romance a Rake



You can lead a wallflower to the ball, but you can't make her bloom—unless one daring young bachelor turns up the heat…



What's a nice girl like Miss Juliet Shelby doing at a place like Lord Deveril's ballroom? With her shy demeanor, she's a total stranger to the dance floor and a source of mockery for the ton. So imagine her surprise when Deveril gallantly comes to her defense—and offers to teach her to dance! Juliet can hardly believe the most handsome bachelor in London would notice her, until he takes her in his arms and sets her heart ablaze…



Lord Alec Deveril has never felt such a spark of attraction for an unmarried lady before. Unlike the "fashionable" ladies he's accustomed to, Juliet possesses a generous spirit, a fiery intelligence—and an explosive secret. Deep in the London underworld, a dear friend has vanished, and Juliet fears the worst. Deveril insists on helping, escorting her through the darkest alleys in town. But he too is hiding a shocking secret—and the only way he can defeat the devil in his past is to seduce the angel in his arms…

Interesting subject matter and plot but lacks the mature writing of long time writers. Language definitely suggests a beginner.

A wonderful book that revolves around Juliet and Alec's way to romance.How Juliet,a girl who's injuries to her leg make it impossible for any suitor to want her for marriage and Alec,who has a past of his own,is drawn to her despite her limp.How Juliet's mother is insistent on making Juliet marry a man twice her age against Juliet's wish and how Alec supports Juliet and falls in love with her.
