My thanks to the author for my copy of this book
There's nothing I like better than a good Regency Rake and Beau Russington is up there with the best of them. Swoon-worthy from the very start of the novel, Beau oozes charisma, sex appeal and more than a hint of danger, in fact, he is everything that Molly Morgan detests. So, when Beau and his equally rakish friends arrive in the small northern village of Compton Parva, Molly is determined to keep these profligate men away from Prospect House, the home she runs for 'fallen women'. That Molly is the main benefactor of this home harks back to a bad experience which happened some time ago in her own past and which has left her distrustful of all men.
I was quite entranced by the story, and found that I thoroughly enjoyed the sparring which goes on between Beau and Molly. Trying to resist the lure of attraction between them is what makes the book so delicious to read. Molly's steadfastness, particularly in her dealings with the women at Prospect House, is to her credit but, it is the intoxicating, and at times infuriating presence of Beau, which sets her heart a fluttering. The other delightful characters who flit into and out of the story add interesting depth, whilst the less than likeable characters add the necessary light and shade,to this well written Regency romp.
If you enjoy Regency romances, with a touch of intrigue and more than a hint of 'will they or won't they' romance, then this story will certainly appeal.
