Once a Rake
Lady Sarah Clarke tries desperately to hold onto her husband’s farm, living with his family, who barely accepts her. Boswell disappeared during a battle four months ago, near the end of the Napoleonic Wars. In an unexpected turn of events, Sarah finds herself harboring a very handsome Scot, who has been wounded in what some consider a failed attempt at assassinating the Duke of Wellington. Ian Ferguson is innocent; those responsible want nothing more than to end his life. Ian finds himself with a festering gunshot wound on Sarah’s farm, where she tends to him while fearing for the farm. Both begin to feel an attraction that can’t be denied, despite her marriage and his commitment to a titled fiancée back in Scotland. Can Ian save himself from hanging as a traitor, while saving Sarah from a sad life, or will there smoldering passions consume them and put them in more danger from their enemies?
This romance novel is well written and has a few very nice twists to the plot that make it an enjoyable read. It has danger, heroes, romance and all the things that make up a good book. The reader will find that there are some steamy parts, leaving little to the imagination of how Ian feels about Sarah.
