Lady Olivia and the Infamous Rake by Janice Preston @JaniceGPreston #Review

ARC received from Author.

“He’s completely unsuitable…

he’s a rake.”

Part of The Beauchamp Heirs: after being plucked from peril by resolute bachelor Lord Hugo Alastair, Lady Olivia Beauchamp is secretly outraged that he doesn’t even try to steal a kiss! He’s a notorious rake among the ton, and as a result, utterly forbidden to an innocent debutante like her. But their attraction is magnetic. Will she risk her reputation for a passionate encounter?

I have been waiting patiently for Olivia's story ever since we met her in The Beauchamp Bethrothals series. Don't worry if you haven't read any of the books in that series because it is the start of a brand new one. However if you have read the previous books it is so lovely to catch up with characters you have already met. 

Olivia is only eighteen but definitely knows her own mind and even though she has her flaws she has such a spirited personality that I couldn't help but like her. Just like Hugo she has an inner depth to her character and even though Olivia makes mistakes she has a heart of gold. Hugo is charming and a rake so of course Olivia should stay away, right? Well as the story progresses the layers of Hugo's personalty are revealed perfectly showing a more caring and deeper side. There is such a beautiful connection between the pair with the perfect balance of both sweet and passionate chemistry. 

All of the characters are well written and add an extra something to the story whether they are looking out for Olivia or looking to cause trouble. I was completely charmed yet again by Janice Preston's writing. The way she created such wonderful and engaging characters, it really is a story to lose yourself in! 

A gorgeous story!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to Janice Preston for my copy.

I grew up in Wembley, North London, with a love of reading, writing stories and animals. After leaving school at eighteen, I moved to Devon and any thoughts of writing became lost in the hectic rush of life as a farmer’s wife, with two children and many animals to care for. When my children left home for university, I discovered a love of history and of the Regency period in particular and began to write seriously for the first time since my teens. 

Real life then got in the way and I didn't write again until 2009. I joined the Romantic Novelists' Association in 2012 and my first Regency romance was accepted for publication by Harlequin Mills & Boon in late 2013.

I now live in the West Midlands with my second husband and two cats and I continue to write Regency romances for Harlequin Mills & Boon.
