historical romance between a well known rake and a plain man who has plotted, clawed, and calculated respectability into everything he does I really enjoyed Julian, in his fussy, driven, flustered desire to make himself and his sister a solid place in society, one safe from any hints of their commercial past, or the vagaries of their childhood in the East Julian had his plans laid out, his goals arrayed And his pain at finding them overset both by his siste There is a lot to like about this historical romance between a well known rake and a plain man who has plotted, clawed, and

by his attraction to a known rake is fun to watch.Courtney is a bit less clear cut He s a man who seems to have enjoyed a brilliant bisexual romp across Europe, but who is, underneath it, both sad at the loss of his sister and loss of contact with his nephew, and haunted by childhood rejections I missed a bit of edge and wildness that I expected from Courtney At times, I didn t follow the internal conflicts keeping these two men apart, with their emotions waffling when there didn t seem to be strong reason for it There would have been plenty of external tension that could have come into play, I think, to avoid the way these two get lost in their own heads.Nonetheless it was a fun ride, with some good banter and appealing characters I liked that there were female secondary characters with real plot importance and lives of their own This could be read as a stand alone, but it interweaves with, in particular, the second book, and you will lose a few threads as a solo read The historical feel is good A few hints of the social climate aretease than substance here, compared to some of my recent historical reads, but the context seemed solid and well researched, and the ending was satisfying This author has quickly moved to the top of my Must Read list While I didn t love The Ruin of a Rake quite as much as The Lawrence Browne Affair, I still fully enjoyed this quirky historical romance about a reluctant scoundrel and a proper gentleman who won t sully his name by association.Courtenay was not a likeable character in the second book, but the instant I read his POV,

carefully constructed facade Looking at him felt like the answer to a question Courtenay had been asking for as long as he could remember Julian craves Courtenay, who ll barely spare him a glance, but reluctance turns to passion, and both men learn that love is just the flip side of hate I never want to forget what you look like right now You look like you belong to me The last chapter radiates warmth, friendship, and acceptance The series comes full circle I couldn t ask forLove was somebody aiming a pistol at your heart while you sat there and acted like it was perfectly fine Audiobook 5
