Letter from a Rake
Recently arrived in London, Millie Ashton thinks English high society is full of empty headed, arrogant fools. But when she meets Lord Alex Radley, she falls desperately in love with him.
Fearing humiliation and rejection, she decides the only sensible thing to do is take her pride and go home to India. Men like Alex do not fall for girls like her, whereas every girl loses her heart to Alexander the Great.
Alex Radley, Marquis of Brooke rules the ton like a god, but even gods are known to fall for mere mortals. With his wealth and title, wooing Millie should be an easy task.
When his passionate love letter to Millie goes astray, Alex's life becomes more than a little complicated. He is shocked to discover the price that everyone he loves has long paid in order to keep his secrets safe, to protect him.
Will losing the woman he loves be the ultimate price Alex has to pay when he finally confesses the truth to Millie?

I’m glad to have found her
Good New authors are always fun to find. I think I’ll read more from this one.
The story is interesting and funny. I loved all the misunderstandings and how they were resolved. The author adds humor into this interesting historical novel.
The book itself was written well, the plot line flowed nicely. However, in my opinion, the characters themselves felt juvenile. It felt more as if I were reading about 15 and 16 year olds than adults. Still a good read and a sweet story though.
