A Rake Reformed by Shirley Marks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a sweet regency.
Freddie is the Earl of Brent and has spent quite a bit of time in the gaming halls loosing lots and lots of money. When he reaches rock bottom and needs to flee London he heads North to Penshaw Manor to hid from his creditors and his father, the Duke.
On the run with his best friend Trevor, the two end up in a carriage accident where Trevor is injured. Keeping their true identities secret, they are taken in by a local family with two beautiful daughters, Clare and Rosalin. Trevor and Clare have an instant attraction, where Rosalin and Freddie have a bumpy start. It was fun to see how each relationship develops at its own pace.
I thought this was a nice story, takes place over the Christmas season, which added a nice atmosphere to the story. It was nice to see the changes Freddie makes and I felt his desire to help his tenants was sincere and that he'd leave behind his gambling ways. The romances were sweet. It was a pleasant read.
