Even though I still liked book one better than this one, it still had a lot of great elements to the story.  Ms. Julianne Gatewick is Tristan’s sister.  While Tristan is staying behind with Tessa, who is pregnant.  Julianne goes off to have a season in London.  Tristan assigns his best friend to be her guardian and watch over her.  Marc, the Earl of Hawfield, knows that a major rule not to be broken is that you could never date your best friend’s sister.  But he soon realizes that he’s seen Julianne as his girl for a long time.

While Julianne attends parties and fields proposals from other suitors, she is not only vying for Hawk’s attentions.  She is also writing a pamphlet on How to Seduce a Rake.  This is a detailed guide on how women can attract and secure the affections of rakes all over London.  She manages to finish it and get it published before the end of the season as an anonymous publication which causes great stir in London’s society.

Marc has a big secret.  He’s hidden it from everyone for many years and still tries to hide it from Julianne as well.  But nothing, not even something as important as this can change her mind.  She’s wanted and been in love with Hawk since she was 8 years old.  And she wants to have him now, once and for all.  She will stop at nothing to get him.

One of my favorite parts about this story is the fact that Julianne is part of a group of young friends, both male and female, enjoying the season in London together.  It was nice to see their friendly dynamics.  And of course we met the characters that will take center stage in the next book who are completely different than we’ve previously seen.  I’m looking forward to reading it!

About Vicky Dreiling

Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.” When she’s not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and most of all, long lunches with friends. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
