    In Love & Scandal, Collette Jardiniere is outraged when notorious roué Charles Jameson appears to take credit for The Last Days of a Rake, a novel she wrote under the pseudonym Colin Jenkins to satisfy Victorian convention.

    Can a rake be true to himself, yet remain free from sin?

    Edgar Lankin has lived the life of rake, a man who cares for nothing but the pleasures of the flesh. But it is the seduction—and abandonment—of a gentle maiden that turns him from mere gadabout to immoral cad. Too late, Lankin realizes his self-centered ways have left him incapable of finding enjoyment in anything. Now on his deathbed, he relates the shocking tale of his wasted life to John Hamilton, a school chum who chose a different path.

    MY THOUGHTS:
     
    THE LAST DAYS OF A RAKE by Donna Lea Simpson is a  Victorian romance and the companion book to Love and Surrender but can be read as a stand alone. It is a short story which is well written with detail and depth. It is about the redemption of a rake who during his youth is self centered and leaves a trail of ruin lives in his quake. He relays He tale of his destruction to an old friend during the final time of his life. He has endured opium abuse,sexual conquest, gambling,salvation many sexual games, and other less than desirable deeds. London society will be shocked at what this story reveals about the “RAKE”. This book was received for review from Net Galley and details can be found at  Carina Press.
