    FYI, He's a Rake!

    I liked the idea of the story line, but the story seemed to drag a bit for me. Marlena's cousin was annoying with her constantly demanding everything from the duke. Asking to take over Rath's chambers....wouldn't be allowed at all! Eugenia constantly fainting was a bit tiring to read also. Why would you think you've been found out for your misdeeds every time you see someone? And yes, Rath being Constantly called a Rake throughout the book got tedious. Yes, he's a rake, we get it. I did like Rath's friends and Lady Vera. Hopefully she gets her own story soon. Thank you NetGalley for the advance copy!

    historical romance

    Three young men made a wager… A scandalous wager – at least society said it was. Three young dukes gained the dubious “honor” of being named… …The Rakes of Saint James. In the final book of the series the Duke of Rathburn “Rath” has agreed to become the guardian of Miss Marlena Fast who will be coming out in her first season with the ton. She lives with a widowed cousin, has dear friends living next door and has a secret she really doesn’t want Rath to find out about. Of course, eventually the secret does come out and there is a happily ever after for the couple and a few other couples in the book. The reader gets to see how the other two rakes and their wives are doing, too. Each chapter of the book begins with an epigraph taken from “Miss Honora Truth’s Words of Wisdom and Warning About Rakes, Scoundrels, Rogues and Libertines” – who the author of this tome and weekly scandal sheet is unknown throughout the series but revealed at the end of this book. I had trouble with this book because I found difficulty relating to the characters and the story. I did not really engage with hero or heroine and didn’t seem to care about them as much as I would have liked to. I had this feeling that the story could have been told in about half the words. Anyway, I am sure that some will love this book and others will find it rather slow and tame. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    Opposites Attract

    The Duke of Rathburne had a few regrets. In It’s All About The Duke, “Rath” admits that he was the one responsible for the idea that embarrassed several young women after a prank went wrong many years ago. The second was that he was standing on the doorstep of another young woman about to advise her that he was her guardian. Her long-time guardian believed himself nearing the end of his life, and wanted to see his beloved ward settled with a new guardian before his death. It was now up to the Rath to launch her into society and find her a husband. He had met Miss Marlena Fast many years ago when she was a young hoyden and didn’t hold out much hope for success. Miss Marlena Fast may enjoy doing her own gardening, and without the benefit of the hat, but she was no hoyden. The young woman who greeted him was strikingly beautiful and not at all what he had expected. Marlena was quite startled to find the Duke in her garden. She feared her secret was out. For the last several years, Marlena has been the author behind the “Miss Honora Truth’s Words of Wisdom and Warning About Rakes, Scoundrels, Rogues, and Libertines” scandal sheet. Since the Duke was regularly featured in those pages, she worried the Duke was there to expose her. Finding out he was to be her guardian was not much of an improvement on her initial supposition. Having one of the “Rakes of St. James” as her guardian was not what she considered a good idea. Opposites Attract It’s fun to watch two people who think they want one thing get another and be perfectly happy with it. Marlena spends years outing the Duke for his behavior, only to find that he is what she wants. The Duke thinks he wants a typical young lady, only to find that he is very much attracted to someone quite different. Reading the two of them dance around each other was a lot of fun. The author, Amelia Grey, managed to paint a very entertaining picture in this novel. I can’t wait to find it what the other Rakes of St. James are up to. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    I Loved It

    The Duke of Rathburne should know better than make decisions when in his cups. It is always going to cause him trouble. This time he just has to make the best of it. Who will ever believe, him, one of the Rakes of St. James as guardian to a young lady. Miss Marlena Fast is terrified when the Duke turns up on her doorstep, he must have come to have her arrested for what she has done. Our heroine was orphaned as a baby and passed between different guardians. She has learned to be brave and independent. That along with her soft heart have led her into mischief with her writings. Our hero will have to finally face up to the sins of the past, how can he make amends? A funny and at times emotional romance with wonderful characters. This is a highly entertaining story. The third and last in the series, but you could read each book on it's own. I have read and loved all of them.

    It"s All About the Duke

    What could be worse? Trying to outlive an old scandal or trying to make a new one by writing about it? This series is about three rakes who made a wager long ago that has haunted them for years. With two happily married, the third, Rath, the Duke of Rathborn is left. Marlena Fast, has been writing a column under the pen name Miss Honora Truth, using her gossip sheet to keep reminding the public of the three men's misdeeds. When fate steps in and Rath accepts a request to assume guardianship of Marlena and help present her to society, the irony is not lost on her. Has he found out who she is? Of course there is an automatic attraction that they both try to fight. Each chapter began with a quote of her witticisms from her column or thoughts. But the chemistry between the two is just overwhelming. There are several twist and turns with many delightful side characters coming into play. The story runs its course and comes to a page turning conclusion. Although part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. But be sure to read the others and you will be glad you did!!
