About the book...
Wild, Wild Rake, the next sweeping, emotional, witty, and sharp romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from beloved author Janna MacGregor.

Her first marriage was an epic fail.

Lady Avalon Warwyk never did love her husband. Arrogant, selfish, and cruel, it’s a blessing when she’s widowed and left to raise her son all by herself. Finally, Avalon can live freely and do the work she loves: helping fallen women become businesswomen. She’s lived these past ten years with no desire to remarry; that is, until Mr. Devan Farris comes to town.

Can he convince her to take another chance at happily ever after?
Devan Farris–charming vicar, reputed rake, and the brother of Avalon’s son’s guardian–is reluctantly sent to town to keep tabs on Avalon and her son. Devan wishes he didn’t have to meddle in her affairs; he’s not one to trod on a woman’s independent nature and keen sense of convictions. But she’ll have nothing to do with a vicar with a wild reputation–even though he’s never given his heart and body to another. If only he could find a way to show Avalon who he really is on the inside–a good, true soul looking for its other half. But how can he prove that he wants to love and care for her. . .until death do they part?

When I started reading this, I was waiting for my mother to get out of outpatient surgery, so I was quite literally in a crowded room, surrounded by people.  Doesn't sound like much, but when you're reading a romance and it has a somewhat eyebrow raising cover, you never quite know the looks you may receive from those around...let along the doctor when he come out to brief you!  Such as it is, I didn't get any questionable looks (that I saw)...not that I REALLY cared mind you because I was completely lost to the story!

Avalon had a tough life...married to the non-love of her life, sold off like so much cattle, and treated like anything but the amazing woman she was...and to add insult to injury, even after death doth parted her from most her troubles, those left behind continued to encroach on her world.  All she wanted was to help those that she could, and raise her son as the little lord that he was, complete with a tender heart and sensibilities to help those in need...without interference, or a spy!  Albeit he was definitely the handsomest one that a woman could hope for!  Enter Vicar Devan Farris...

If the rumors are to be believed...and why wouldn't they be...he's a man of the cloth who has also taken the cloth off many a woman in his parish with his dashing good looks, and debonair charm.  In short, he's a rake ...and yes, the one attributed with the double term of wild in the title of this very book...and he's also the last person Avalon wishes to deal with in her vicinity.  Thing is...we don't always get what we want, and often it's the very thing we don't want that we need.  When one thing leads to another, these two get the chance that they never wished for and yet, now that it's plain to see, can't bare to back away from.  Of course, it won't be without its own set of obstacles (one in particular named Penelope will cause quite a bit of trouble!), but then again, the things really worth the effort, the people that should truly be in our lives are worth it.

Image result for hearts

This was a FABULOUS Historical Romance with characters that were true of heart.  They were filled with such passion for helping others, and doing what was right by all, that one wouldn't stop feeling righteous on their behalf.  When the tender moments came to pass, I couldn't stop myself from hoping that this time, this moment was the one they would finally see to each other's hearts.  My lady and the vicar were quite the characters indeed, as were the townspeople and their attendants, but I must say, I held a soft spot for our little Lord Thane as well.  He was such a perceptive young man, and the plain truths that he spoke from the heart, held wisdom beyond their years. 

If you're a fan of the genre, take a chance on the Cavensham clan!
