Her first marriage was an epic failure.
Lady Avalon Warwyck never did love her husband. Arrogant, selfish, and cruel, it’s a blessing when she’s widowed and left to raise her son all by herself. Finally, Avalon can live freely and do the work she loves: helping fallen women become businesswomen. She’s lived these past ten years with no desire to remarry―that is, until Mr. Devan Farris comes to town.
Can he convince her to take another chance at happily ever after?
Devan Farris―charming vicar, reputed rake, and the brother of Avalon’s son’s guardian―is reluctantly sent to town to keep tabs on Avalon and her son. Devan wishes he didn’t have to meddle in her affairs; he’s not one to trod on a woman’s independent nature and keen sense of convictions. But she’ll have nothing to do with vicar with a wild reputation―even though he’s never given his heart and body to another. If only he could find a way to show Avalon who he really is on the inside―a good, true soul looking for its other half. But how can prove that he wants to love and care for her. . .until death do they part?
A Deliciously Swoony, Wildly Captivating, & Absolutely Heartwarming Romance
Swoon! This book made my heart melt and I absolutely adore Avalon and Devan. Wild, Wild Rake by Janna MacGregor is a deliciously romantic, captivating, and heartwarming love story.
I love reading romance books and pretty much any stories that has a bit of it, but this is my first time picking up a Regency Romance story. I have to say… the dialogue at times was a bit weird for me and a little cringy, but definitely not in a bad way. Different time period and different ways of flirting and such. Anyway, once I got hooked, which surprisingly didn’t take very long, I actually found myself swooning and really loving this. I enjoyed Janna MacGregor’s writing (my first book from her too) and was quite enthralled with the story, the romance, and the characters.
This is Book #6 in The Cavensham Heiresses Series and after finishing this, I’m definitely adding the other books on my TBR. This lovely story is about Lady Avalon Warwyck, a heartbroken and widowed mother left to raise her 10 year old son, and Devan Farris, a devilishly charming, handsome, and kind vicar who has a reputation as a rake.
Betrayed, humiliated and hurt in the past, Avalon is slow to trust and has a difficult time letting her guard down Devan is known as a wild rake, but he’s actually a gentleman with a good heart. When Devan’s brother sends him to Warwyck Hall to tutor Avalon’s son and spy on her, he unexpected begins to fall for her. Avalon doesn’t want to be hurt by another man again, but she just can’t resist Devan’s charms and kind soul. Can Devan slowly win Avalon’s heart and show her that they can have true love and a happily ever after together?
This absolutely will not be my last regency romance and I think I have a new obsession. I ended up really loving this book that I’m so excited to read more, not only from this author, but also check out other regency romance stories. I enjoyed the drama and excitement, the spine-tingling swoony romance, the loveable characters, and the beautiful story about two people finding love when they least expect it. Avalon is an amazing and likeable heroine. I admired her determination, strength, passion, and kindness. Devan is just as great and I completely adore him. He’s patient, caring, sweet, and has a heart of gold. I thoroughly enjoyed the bantering and chemistry between them and all their cute moments togehter. The plot is entertaining and fun. There’s plenty of feels and passionate scenes, lighterhearted and fun times, and wonderful moments that warm you and fill you with so much joy.
Janna MacGregor’s Wild, Wild Rake is an exciting, sexy, romantic, and captivating love story that made me smile and had me swooning and blushing at times. Her writing is engaging, the storyline is fun and heartwarming, and the characters are just delightful. Wild, Wild Rake is truly an enjoyable romance story and the ending is just lovely and perfect. Honestly cannot recommend this enough!
If you love historical romances with humor, steam, and a lot of heart, then add this book on your TBR!
