The Taming of the Rake by Kasey Michaels

05 Aug

Kasey Michaels introduces another entertaining trilogy with one of her signature adventurous romp. Ms. Michaels continues to give us smart and witty heroines who totally match her hero.

Beau Blackthorn was born on the wrong side of the blanket but was acknowledged by his father, a Marquis. He meets Lady Chelsea when he tries to propose to her older sister years before the present day of the book. The proposal is met with less than welcoming sentiments from her entire family for different reasons. A very young Lady Chelsea admired how Beau handled the rejection although she felt that Beau should have seen right through her sister before it got to the proposal stage.

Years later, Lady Chelsea is being forced to marry a religious zealot and she is determined not to succumb to her brother’s pressure. She runs away from home, finds Beau and asks him to save her from the unwanted marriage. Being a gentleman, Beau proposes marriage and the adventure begins. Her brother leaves no stones unturned looking for Lady Chelsea. The couple leads him a merry chase going from one escapade to the next.

Ms. Michaels has introduced some wonderful characters who will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. This is an excellent read and I can’t wait for the next installment of this trilogy.
