    Enjoyable but I needed more from the Rake

    Overall, I thought the story was enjoyable.  I did think Stephen fell too fast for the kind of rake he is portrayed to be in the beginning.  I would have liked for him to keep thinking it was lust for a lot longer before realizing the lust he felt was actually love.  I thought that for a rake portrayed as stubborn and stuck in his ways and very determined to never get involved, he fell pretty fast. It didn’t take him long to start thinking about his feelings for her and how quickly his views changed, and I didn’t think her actions truly inspired that quick of a turn around. I wanted him to be a stronger rake type character that would be hard to win over, and he seemed to fall rather fast. Penelope was an interesting female character and her back story made her interesting and believable when it came to finding it hard to trust him. The story did end well and I really liked the epilogue. I love seeing how things end up after the last chapter, especially when time has gone by. The plot was intriguing and the conflicts the characters had to overcome were entertaining and made for a good story.  I liked it overall, I just like my rakes to be far more stubborn than Stephen seemed to be.

    Historical Romance

    Drawn to the Marquess by Bronwen Evans Imperfect Lords #2 Penelope’s ex-brother-in-law has started investigating his brother’s death. He believe he can prove that Penelope killed her husband, have her hung and take all that she owns for himself. So, Penelope needs a knight to come to her rescue...perhaps with a bit of a push...and she has chosen Stephen Hornsby, Marquess of Clevedon to be the man to clear her name. When she sets her plot in play at Sotheby’s it doesn’t go as planned but she does get Stephen to agree to work with her for the purpose she has in mind. Stephen and Penelope have issues that keep them from wanting to ever marry. Penelope had a horrible marriage and prefers her freedom to being under the thumb of a man again and Stephen fears his medical condition should prevent him from marrying and fathering children – even though it is rather expected that he provide an heir. This story is a romance with strong characters who both deserve a HEA if they can find a way to overcome what keeps them from finding a mate. It deals with issues that are still prevalent today and in doing so made me consider whether some things were easier or more difficult in the past. I loved the slow growth of both characters as they dealt with their pasts and issues in their lives. They so well suited one another and their story and the epilogue left me with a smile on my face. 5 Stars

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    The is a great historical romance, sex scenes are really hot. But this story is about more than that. It has betrayal, a murder mystery and both characters are hiding secrets from each other. I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

    Great Historical Romance!

    Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon, is on borrowed time. He is afflicted with the same eye disease as his father. He may go blind soon, and he needs to see everything beautiful and precious before he sees nothing. He’s also determined never to fall in love and marry because his children may inherit his eye issues. Lady Penelope has survived a disastrous marriage to a scoundrel. But, now she’s a suspect in his alleged murder. She asks Stephen to help her clear her name. She wants to live life in freedom without a man tying her down. But, Stephen wants to show her that there is pleasure to be found in the opposite sex. Can he be close to Penelope without losing his heart? Can Penelope risk her independence to find out what she’s missing in her life? This was a great installment to Ms. Evans’ historical series. It’s full of romance, suspense, and a message that makes the whole story more fulfilling. The couple in this story are risking everything they hold dear to be with each other. Both of them are living without any hope for the future. When they open their hearts, hope creeps in. The suspense enhanced the romance and kept me on the edge of my seat until the ending. I can’t wait to read the next Imperfect Lords romance. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    An Emotional Romantic read

    When I read the blurb on this book I could not wait to read it. One of my favorite tropes in the wounded/damaged hero or heroine and this gave me that in abundance. It warms my heart to see them have hope and find love because everyone is not perfect. Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon is going blind, just like his father who killed himself when he was young. Determined to see and experience all the beauty he can before that fatal day comes, He sets out to seduce beautiful widower, Lady Penelope. But she has her own agenda when she gets his attention and needs him to help her. Two beautiful people, full of secrets and strong emotions. One determined to have her in his bed and one just as determined to not allow herself to feel love, passion or desire. Her dead husband had killed all of those feelings in her, or did he? This story gripped me from the beginning and as the pages turned, there was a mystery, secrets held and such strong emotions with these two. Due to the author's wonderful descriptions and amazing prose, I fell in love with these characters and only wanted them to find love and happiness. I recommend this story tenfold and although part of a series it can be read as a standalone. Thank you Bronwen Evans for a wonderful book. I cannot wait for more.
