Gabriel and his equally dashing twin brother, Nick, have discovered they have a half-sister, Juliana, who was also abandoned by the woman who bore them. She arrives from Italy to reluctantly stay with her newfound family after the death of her Italian merchant father. Before she can be introduced to London society, she must be schooled by someone of flawless character.
Tired of life passing her by, Callie, now a spinster, drafts a unique to-do list consisting of items that ladies in polite society simply do not do. The first item on her list – to kiss someone passionately – compels her to make a late-night visit to Gabriel’s home, where they agree on an unconventional business arrangement: Callie will sponsor his sister into society in return for a kiss and a favor to be named later.
Callie is a charming heroine who doesn’t quite believe that anyone could love her. Gabriel, meanwhile, is a rake who is afraid to love. The two come to terms with their growing attachment as Callie attempts to break the rules and find a bit of adventure.
“Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake” is an enchanting read filled with touching emotions, scorching sexual tension and highly engaging characters. MacLean’s vivid storytelling is equally matched by her witty dialogue, particularly among the hero, the heroine and their siblings. This book is a must-read for fans of regency romances.
