A Rake By Any Other Name by Mia Marlowe 
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (Nov 2014)
Series: Somerfield Park, 1
Genre: Historical Romance


When his father, Lord Somerset, tumbles off the roof, Richard Barrett, Lord Hartley, is called home from his Grand Tour to take the reins of the estate while the marquess recuperates. Somerset is in serious financial difficulty, which can only be remedied by marriage to an heiress, Miss Sophie Goodnight, lately arrived from India with her nabob father.

Unfortunately, Richard believes he has already lost his heart to Lady Antonia Pruett. And Miss Goodnight isn’t too keen on becoming Somerset’s purse with feet, so she foils their families’ attempts to throw her and Richard together at every turn. To make matters worse, the reason Lord Somerset fell off the roof in the first place is a secret that threatens to upend all their lives.

I love the softness of the cover. It's pretty. I love soft pink of the dress and I love soft blueish-purple of the sky. It's truly a pretty cover. Plus, the story sounds intriguing. I'm curious if Richard will catch his purse with feet or if it will run away. So, what are you lusting for, a pretty cover or something totally different?


  1. Oooh, lovely choice! You can never have enough pretty covers, trust me!
