Wild, Wild Rake

Janna MacGregor. St. Martin’s, $7.99 mass market (368p) ISBN 978-1-250-29601-6
MacGregor delivers a passionate, tumultuous sixth Cavensham Heiresses Regency romance (after Rogue Most Wanted). Lady Avalon Warwyk, a Cavensham by birth, is married to a brutish husband who humiliates her by running off with a prostitute, leaving Avalon alone to raise their infant son, Thane. A decade later, Avalon, now a widow, uses her fortune to help women who want to get out of the sex trade. The Earl of Larkton, a good friend of Avalon’s late husband, grows suspicious of Avalon’s involvement with women he views as disreputable and sends his younger brother, vicar and reputed rake Devan Farris, to spy on her. Devan witnessed Avalon at her lowest moment years before, and the strength she showed in her misery earned his admiration. Avalon still thinks of Devan as the man who taunted her with the nickname Lady Warlock, but she slowly comes to see his true nature. Though Avalon’s insecurities and indecision occasionally grow tedious, unexpected twists, hot sex, and a sweetheart of a hero will keep readers’ attention. This tantalizing love story is a solid series entry. Agent: Pamela Ahearn, The Ahearn Agency. (Mar.)
