Book Love (49) A Good Rake Is Hard To Find


Heartbroken by the loss of her brother, Miss Leonora Craven vows to uncover the truth about his “accident,” which seems to have been anything but. Jonathan Craven was involved with the Lords of Anarchy, a notorious driving club, and Leonora can’t help but suspect foul play. But the only way she can infiltrate their reckless inner circle is to enlist the help of Jonny’s closest ally, Lord Frederick Lisle. If only he didn’t also happen to be the man who broke Leonora’s heart…


Frederick isn’t surprised to find gorgeous, headstrong Leonora playing detective, but he knows that the Lords of Anarchy mean business—and he has no choice but to protect her. A sham engagement to Leonora will allow Frederick to bring her into the club and along for the ride. But it isn’t long before pretending to be lovers leads to very real passion. With everything to lose, is their tempestuous affair worth the risk?

Why A Good Rake Is Hard To Find?

What a book I remember this being. I have been a fan of Manda Collins for quite some time, but this book is one of her best I have ever read. A solid romance with a mystery that leaves you guessing what is really happening. I love the way Collins balances out the story, the romance of course is the heart of the book but the mystery and detective elements are the whipped cream on top. The actual romance is a hum dinger….its poignant and powerful and draws you in. The way she writes this book is so endearing and saddens me it doesn’t have that many ratings. So if you like historical romance you need to grab this book up ASAP!!

  1. I don’t know that I’ve heard of Manda Collins before, Renee. I’ll see what I can do about procuring this one and reading/reviewing it though because I can tell it left an impression on you! 😉

    1. I would love to see what you think of this author. I like her quite a bit, but then she is very easy for me to get into. She is similar to Hoyt in some ways so I think you would enjoy here.
