The Rake and the Recluse: a romance novel with pictures

Jenn LeBlanc

Two complete love stories in one beautiful book.

I never thought time-travel was real. Until it happened to me...

But isn't all fun and games. A woman in Victorian England is a commodity. She's owned. I'm no longer the powerful business woman I was just moments ago and on top of it all I'm controlled by a man who may destroy more than my heart. 

My only chance for safety lies in Gideon Trumbull, a lionhearted—but evasive—duke.

What began as a compulsion to learn anything I could about him turns into an urgent need and I find myself in an inescapable new reality—a world in which I don't belong. 


Meanwhile... Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident, finding a stowaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London...

I plan to seduce the rake who refuses to touch me. Propriety be damned. 

Getting him to teach me what love is... seems like just the right challenge to sooth my damaged soul.
