Her brother's best friend might be a rake, but she's about to be his ruin...
Claire is the dutiful, proper Cleveland sister, and the only one who's not embroiled in a scandal. Until now. With her sister's marriage to an earl, the weight of responsibility to save her family has been lifted from her shoulders, and for the first time in her life Claire is free. A rebelliousness she's long denied has her acting out in ways she would never have imagined. Like chasing her brother through the dark streets of London... and kissing her brother's best friend and notorious rake, Lord Nicholas.
Nicholas thought he knew everything there was to know about his friend's proper and boring younger sister. Beautiful though she might be, Claire holds no allure for the worldly rogue. At least, not until he holds her in his arms. Could this passionate, daring, feisty woman be the same Claire Cleveland with the simpering smiles? Even more alarming, has the woman of his heart been right in front of his eyes this whole time? He may be late to realize that there is more to Claire than meets the eye, but now that he's seen her true nature, he'll do anything to keep her by his side. Even if that means marrying her.
Please Note: This book was formerly titled A Rake's Ruin.
It was a fun regency read!
Short but enduring love story
Claire’s character with many doubts and Nicholas’s unyielding love for her was a truly enjoyable story. It’s a nice change of pace to have the male character be the driving force to their happiness.
very CLEAN ! That being said it was a sweet, cute, fun & enjoyable easy read
