    Historical Romance

    To the Duke, With Love by Amelia Grey The Rakes of St. James #2 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. Years later Sloane Knox, Duke of Hawksthorn is worried about his sister’s first season…there are rumors that his sister might have to face drama as he and his friends created for twelve young women with their wager. So, his plan is to have Adele betrothed BEFORE her season begins. Little does he know that the Quick family might provide him and his both the perfect matches. From the first meeting of Loretta Quick and Hawk the sparks flew. There was a kiss but Loretta was way too smart to allow more. The book does finally see them together but it takes effort on Hawk’s part to achieve his heart’s desire. Adele and Paxton have a nice side story that may also provide a much tamer HEA at some point in the future. There is another thread in the story of an orphaned street boy that appears at Loretta’s door. Hawk never really trusts him but does keep an eye on him. Loretta wants Farley to have a life and family that is more than he has known but whether or not he will be willing to make changes or even want to do so is left hanging a bit. It might be nice to hear what eventually becomes of him in the future. I enjoyed the story and it was in keeping with the era but it did not overwhelm me or draw me in as some books do. I wondered how realistic Loretta’s situation would have been and how she could be so malleable and obedient to her uncle while also so strong willed when with Hawk. I found Hawk to be an okay guy but kind of wanted to know more about him and his regular life and what he enjoyed doing. All in all it was an okay story and I would like to find out what will happen to the third Rake of St. James when Duke Rathburne’s story is told. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    A Lovely Light Read

    Sloane Knox, the Duke of Hawksthorn is one of the Rakes of St. James. He and his fellow rakes made a silly mistake when they we're young and somebody is making mischief because of it. Because he has a sister about to make her debut Hawk wants to make sure she doesn't suffer for his actions. He will arrange a marriage for her to an acceptable young man. Miss Loretta Quick has lived a very quiet life in the country since she jilted a man at the altar. Her uncle who had arranged the marriage is punishing her for defying him. She vowed that she would never marry. Her younger brother does his best to keep her company as often as he can but life in the quiet countryside is not for such a happy go lucky young man. Our hero is a loving brother who knows where his responsibilities lay. The females in his life must be protected at all costs. Our heroine is very softhearted and lonely. A sweet historical romance with characters you can't help but fall in love with. This is part of a series but each book can be read on it's own. A lovely light read.

    Good second in the series!

    To the Duke, With Love by Amelia Grey Series: Rakes of St. James #2 4.5 Stars - I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so I jumped at the chance to read the second. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the banter between Hawk and Loretta, which started off right away. The secondary characters were good and I would love to watch Farley grow up a bit more and possibly have a story of his own one day. Ms. Grey has an easy to read writing style, which I truly enjoy. Her wit is fun and her characters are well developed. I will continue to look for books by her. ** I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

    Heartwarming &. Captivating!

    This is the second installment in The Rakes of St. James series by Amelia Grey. The second rake in the series is the Duke of Hawksthorn, “Hawk”. His sister Adele is getting to ready to make her debut this Season. But with the scandal sheet fueling the gossip mongers, about the scandal from his past, he is desperate to have his sister’s betrothal settled before the season starts. So, Hawk sets out to visit Mammoth House and Paxton Quick to arrange a betrothal between him and his sister Adele. But Hawk finds that Paxton is not at home . So he must deal with the unexpected, intriguing, as well as beautiful, Loretta Quick. His immediate attraction to her beauty, and her infuriating, wit and intelligence, makes it hard for him to concentrate on the important issue before him. Loretta Quick is Paxton’s sister, who has been confined to Mammoth House as punishment for refusing to go through with an arranged marriage. And with everything that Loretta has been through, she definitely wants her brother to marry for love . What unfolds is a delightful combination of romance and stolen moments as Hawk tries to change Lorettas’ mind regarding her situation, as well as the feelings they have for each other. I was immediately hooked. Their immediate attraction and sizzling awareness, between these two characters jumps off the page. I loved and admired Loretta. She is such a strong, character. She's honest and not afraid to say what's on her mind. Reformed rake, Hawk, is a swoon worthy hero and easy to fall in love with. His tenacity and determination to get exactly what he wants is sexy and it's easy to understand why Loretta is immediately attracted to him. Loretta and Hawk find that whether they are together or apart, all they can think of is the other, and the more they get to know each other, the more they want each other. I also really enjoyed getting a different side to this era, as we are given a glimpse of some real life issues dealing with poverty and child labor. Amelia Grey really developed complex characters that added dimension to the story. Even the secondary characters were well developed. Their story within the book will definitely tug at your heartstrings. Overall, this was a really heartwarming, sweet read and I can't wait to see what Amelia Grey gives us next. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
