Last Rake In London
Last Rake in London by Nicola Cornick
Mills and Boon
The Last Rake in London is the twenty-fifth book by one of the world’s favourite writers of historical romance: Nicola Cornick!
Notorious rake Jack Kestrel is determined to track down Miss Bowes and to put a stop to her vicious blackmailing of his dying uncle. But on a visit to the Wallace Collection, Jack gets distracted by a beautiful woman whose name turns out to be none other than Miss Bowes…
Sally Bowes scandalously shocked Edwardian society when she spent her inheritance on opening the infamous Blue Parrot club. Too concerned with her business and with keeping a roof over her head and her sisters, flighty Connie and suffragette Nell, to bother with romance, Sally is stunned by the attraction which sizzles between her and Jack Kestrel, who thinks that she’s nothing better than a common gold-digger with her eye on the main chance.
But when fate conspires to push the two in close proximity, Sally and Jack give in to their attraction and realize that they’ve fallen in love with one another. But will they let their scandalous pasts destroy their one chance of happiness?
The Last Rake in London is another excellent example of Nicola Cornick’s immense storytelling prowess! Exciting, passionate, romantic and simply breathtaking, The Last Rake in London features a sexy hero, a lovely heroine, a fabulous cast of supporting characters and a gripping narrative that will hold you in thrall from the very first page!
Congratulations, Nicola Cornick on ten years of outstanding historical romance! Here’s hoping for many, many, many more years of wonderful reading! five red roses. JB
