COLD-HEARTED RAKE is classic Kleypas with a rakish hero, an indomitable heroine, and cast of charming side characters. Set in the late Victorian era, the book explores the intricacies of the changing economic system in England, as landowners continually strived to innovate and expand their sources of income, through the lens of a recently titled earl thrown into the aristrocracy with a failing estate and his relative’s sisters and captivating widow to care for. Readers have clamored for more historical romance from Kleypas, and after five years of waiting, they will not be disappointed.
Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny-and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:
Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?
