A Secret and a Letter
Letter From a Rake is the story of Millie Ashton and Alex Radley, Marquess of Brooke and heir to the Duke of Strathmore. Millie’s family has moved back to England from India, where she was born. She feels out of place and is quite homesick. Alex is the darling of the ladies of the Ton. He is handsome, respected, and sought after, but he has a secret. They meet and are taken with each other. A romance seems to be in the works until Alex makes a silly (but understandable for him) mistake. Now what happens?
Letter From a Rake is Sasha Cottman’s debut novel and a wonderful introduction to the Duke of Strathmore series. The characters are fun and loveable. Millie is sweet and feisty, and the Radley siblings are a delight. It is a well-written story with a little angst and drama and a good dose of humor. Look for a couple of confused ladies, an angry earl, and misfortune in a maze, all because of a love letter gone astray. I enjoyed this story. The audio version was very good. Janine Haynes is a talented reader. Her narration was quite engaging, and I loved the excellent job she did with the characters’ voices.
The audio version of this book was a gift. My review is voluntary.
