Nothing sells like love & scandal…Collette Jardiniere writes of passion and seduction but has experienced neither. Her pseudonymous novel, The Last Days of a Rake, has shocked Victorian society and become a runaway bestseller. Infamous roué Charles Jameson is “revealed” as the author, and Collette is outraged when the cad does little to curtail the gossip.Intrigued by the book the tabloids claim is his thinly veiled autobiography, Jameson tries to find the real author. Returning to London after an unsuccessful hunt, he is pleasantly distracted by a plain country miss reading the wicked book.Collette is dismayed when she learns the identity of the devastatingly handsome man who kissed her senseless. And Jameson cannot believe that she wrote The Last Days of a Rake. As Collette tries to convince him of the truth, their mutual attraction reaches a fever pitch, and soon they find themselves in a real-life scandal!

MY THOUGHTS:
 
 
 
LOVE &SURRENDER by Donna Lea Simpson is a wonderful Victorian Historical romanceset in 19th century London. It is well written with depth and detail. The Last Days of a Rake is the companion book to this story, but can be read without reading that story. The characters are interesting, charming, witty, and will pull you into the story. The secondary characters are just as interesting. This story has romance, sensuality, friendship, redemption, mystery and intrigue. The heroine, Collette, is opinionated, blunt, plain, countrified and will capture your heart. She could be the first to champion women’s rights in England for she wishes to be a novelist, can she is using an assumed name(Colen Jenkins). She wrote “The Last Days of a Rake”. The hero, Jameson, is charming, a rake and a gentleman. When the two meet they are drawn together. Love will blossom, although they do have some problems and a scandal begins. If you enjoy romance and love you will enjoy this one. I would recommend this story it is fast paced and a delight to read. This book was received for review from Net Galley and details can be found at  Carina Press.
