Kasey Michaels is so clever! I loved this book and I am very eagerly awaiting the next two. These brothers are to die for. This particular book is about Beau, the oldest of the brothers. It has all the elements a good romance should have: love, passion, and adventure. The extras are what made it rea...

There's a reason we tell people not to judge a book by its cover. Nothing from the outside gives you a real feel for what you'll find on the page here. First, I take issue with the title. Beau is not a rake and the book is in no way about changing his habits with women. Second, the cover is terrible...

At page 172 or Chapter 10 I realized this book is not for me. The story is not poorly written and there is a plot but it just is not grabbing my interest.For example everyone thinks themselves so cleaver but really it is a silly goose chase. The brother wants to marry off his sister/half cousin actu...

This book had the best dialogue between characters that I have read in a long time. It was witty, fresh and at times, laugh out loud funny. Seven years ago, Beau Blackthorn thought, despite the eldest bastard son of the Marquess of Blackthorn, he was finally being accepted into society. While wait...

I don't think the summary really does justice to the content of the book. And neither does the title. You see, the opportunity for revenge doesn't fall in Beau's lap, Chelsea puts herself in it, begging him to marry her so as to escape the man her brother wants her to marry and give Beau his revenge...

This one turned out to be unexpectedly sweet and tender, with a hero who's basically a good, decent man who has nothing to do with the 'Rake' on the title. Lady Chelsea is told by her brother, the Earl of Brean, that she's to marry a man of his choosing, a conniving priest who's playing her brother...

I really enjoyed the conversations that played out between various characters and I absolutely loved the leading lady's wit and "plans". It was nice to see well-rounded secondary characters also. The story moved along so well I read it in one sitting. A can't-put-it-down book!I can't wait to read ab...
