Review: A Rake by another Name by Mia Marlowe


A Reluctant Lord... A Resistant Lady... A Superfluous Fiancée
And a Devastating Family Secret...
When Richard Barrett, Lord Hartley, is abruptly called home to take the reins of the estate, he discovers the extent of the family's financial straits. The remedy: marry the heiress their families have picked out for him. Unfortunately, he's already planned to marry someone else.
Miss Sophie Goodnight isn't too keen on becoming his purse with feet...and she sabotages all attempts to woo her. But when Lord Hartley discovers the shenanigans in his father's past, he realizes that deciding between two beautiful women is the least of his problems.



Miss Sophie Good night is a hoot; from her first muttered insult she captured my interest and never let go until the very end of the book. I never would have expected any less from a heroine created by Mia Marlowe. This author constantly keeps me chuckling from her character's antics yet they also inspire me with deep emotional revelations. Richard is a wonderful hero, the perfect Regency gentleman. While I didn't like Lady Antonia Pruett I definitely enjoyed the scenes she was in because she gave some fabulous insight into the characters of the lead couple. I loved the interaction between Richard's sister and his best friend, please, please, please let them have their story told! As always with this author's stories I'm left smiling and for me that is the greatest feeling a book can give, to take me away from the stresses and pressures of my everyday life. This is a treat for all fans of the genre and the perfect example as to why she remains on my must-read list.
