    Beautifully written story!

    The Lure of a Rake by Christi Caldwell is #9 in the amazing "The Heart of a Duke" series, but can be read as a stand alone. OMG! This series just keeps getting better and better! Once again, Ms. Caldwell has written a tale with intense emotions and personal struggles of the characters. Fast paced, well written story of their personal struggles, challenges, tragedy, and romance. Both the H/H are strong, with emotional baggage and seaching for comfort, peace and a little happiness. I enjoyed watching this couple find themselves and overcome the powerful emotions their parents inflicted upon them. What a story! Ms. Caldwell has once again, written a story with difficult topics, personal struggles, and powerful emotions. Step into Ms. Caldwell's world where the reader can relate to and feel the characters pain and their reality. Where they may find their HEA, afterall. Strongly recommended! I absolutely adored the characters, the uniqueness of the story and the complex storyline. I believe this is my favorite "Heart of a Duke" story, yet. I don't know how Ms. Caldwell will top this one, emotionally and the complexity of the characters. But I can't wait to find out, what's next from her. Well done, Ms. Caldwell! Another must read from this author and a keeper. For fans of Romance in any genre, this is a must read. Hurry and pick up this beautifully written story, and read it for yourself, you will not regret your choice! Highly recommended! Received for an honest review from the author, but all the opinions and thoughts within are my own. Rating: 5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

    Another Caldwell Hit

    Lady Genevieve Farendale - banished to the country for the scandal created by being jilted at the altar.; Never counting on coming to love the peacefulness and simplicity of country life she thought being banished was the worst thing that could happen to her. That is until two things happened: 1) she was summoned back to London and forced to endure the ton’s spiteful gossip and a marriage to a friend of her father’s; and 2) meeting Cedric Falcot. Cedric Falcot, Marquess of St. Albans, main goal in life was to thwart his sire – 1) by never marrying; therefore, 2) never having a child to continue the disgusting Falcot bloodline. He was happy with drinking, gambling, women, and living only for himself. All things he learned at an early age from his father. What he didn’t count on was meeting Genevieve Farendale, the betrayal of a man he called friend or he’s father’s ultimate manipulation. Cedric proposes a marriage of convenience to solve both his problem of needing a wife to counter a threat from his father and to give Genevieve freedom from gossip and freedom to do as she wishes. A plan he thought he had completely figured out; alas things don’t always go as one plans. Genevieve soon realizes the longings she thought dead were only buried below the surface. Can Cedric become the man she needs and knows he can be? When she learns the true reasoning behind her marriage can she ever forgive him? Can a story of two people who know nothing about the each other, each with their own scars, possibly have a happily ever after? If it’s written by the extremely talented Christi Caldwell it’s possible. However, the reader needs to make sure they have plenty of tissues handy because she does not make it easy for them and The Lure of a Rake is no exception. This reader is always amazed at the depth of emotions that Ms. Caldwell pulls forth in each new book. This reader didn’t know who she wanted to strangle more: Genevieve’s family, Cedric’s father, Cedric’s friend or Cedric himself. Nor did this reader expect to feel Genevieve’s emotions so deeply. This reader usually rates Ms. Caldwell’s books as 5 hankie reads but feels this one may require more. WELL DONE Ms. Caldwell!!!

    The lure of a Rake

    A complected tale, can a young woman who has had her reputation disstroyed, then left at that alter. Take on a Rake, and hope to win his heart? This is a really good read, and keeps you wondering if they can survive the turmoil of their lives. Well worth a read.

    Wonderful, emotional and terrific!

    I truly don't know how Christi Caldwell keeps writing these wonderful, emotional books. I have read and loved each of her books, but this one will always own a special piece of my heart. From the first words, I felt all of Genevieve's pain. I understood Cedric's way of life immediately. Each of them made me wince in pain, shed tears, laugh and rejoice. These have to be two of my favorite Christi Caldwell characters. We have met them briefly in her other publications, but now we get their story. It's probably one of my favorite things about Christi's books that she weaves her characters in and out, but eventually, we do learn their stories. I highly recommend this wonderful book!

    Awesome historical romance

    The Lure of a Rake by Christi Caldwell is fantastic! This book is well written. The characters Ms Caldwell has penned for this story are amazing. Genevieve and Cedric's story is loaded with drama, humor and sexy bits. The Lure of a Rake will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. I loved this book and can't wait to read more from Christi Caldwell in the future. The Lure of a Rake is book 9 in The Heart Of A Duke Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
