Review & Giveaway! The Rake's Redemption by Regina Scott


The Rake's Redemption by Regina Scott
Love Inspired Historical / 2012


About the book:

Even infamous duelist and poet Vaughn Everard has qualms about dragging an innocent lady into his quest for revenge. But Imogene Devary is the daughter of the man suspected of murdering Vaughn's uncle. Surely that makes her fair game in order to uncover the truth!

Can the man who writes such moving verse be beyond redemption? Imogene can't believe so. In taming Vaughn's heart and healing the rift between their families, she's sure she's found her calling. Then his mission to unmask a killer reveals a terrifying plot. Only together can they safeguard his legacy, their newfound love…and England's very future.

My review:


I've really enjoyed "The Everard Legacy" series and, I have to say, I think The Rake's Redemption is my favorite in the series so far (I don't know whether or not there will be another book, but I'm hoping there will be one about Samantha).

One of the reasons why I probably enjoyed The Rake's Redemption so much is because Vaughn had really intrigued me in the past two books and I loved his character even more in this one. I was surprised by how much I liked Imogene Devary - she quickly became another favorite character of mine.

The story was really good and I had a hard time trying to figure out who was right about Imogene's father's guilt - Imogene or Vaughn.

I personally would have liked it if there would have been an epilogue or something (to show us how things are later on) and to have been told more about Samantha's season, but it was still great the way it was.

Overall, I really enjoyed The Rake's Redemption and recommend it if you enjoyed historical romances - it is a great one. I don't think you need to have read the first two books to enjoy The Rake's Redemption, but those books were also really good, so you might want to. :)
