TOUR: How to Ravish a Rake by Vicky Dreiling

Saturday, April 7, 2012




Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can't, she'll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn't count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will "The Devil" Darcett . . .


When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton's shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn't simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he's mended his wicked ways . . .

How to Ravish a Rake is the third book in the ‘how to series’ and although I haven’t read the previous two books How To Ravish a Rake was a wonderful stand-alone romance filled with humor, romance and fashion. This is the first book by Vicky Dreiling that I’ve read and I really enjoyed her ability to build the anticipation throughout the story. I loved Amy she was shy and overall a loveable character and she made a great fit with Will Darcett. Although the story concept was similar to many historical romances Dreiling’s writing style and her characters really brought to life the story. I love historical romances and it was a pleasure reading How to Ravish a Rake! Vicky Dreiling is one of those authors that you know really loves and knows about the genre she writes in. My only complaint is the pacing of the book was a little off, the beginning was a bit to slow for me, but I was glad to see that it quickly picked up. I look forward to reading the previous two books in the series and seeing how the previous relationships tie in.
I highly recommend this story for lovers of historical romances and for those that aren't this is a great place to start!
