About this ebook

USA Today bestseller Lenora Bell returns with a Grease-inspired rom-com about an innocent lady who clashes with a sexy rake, the first book in a brand-new series sure to delight fans of Sarah MacLean, Tessa Dare, and Julia Quinn.

Raised by an overprotective mother, bookish romantic Sandrine Oliver craves adventure, but nothing exciting ever happens in her sleepy seaside village. Until a handsome, mysterious stranger arrives and sweeps her off her feet…only to leave suddenly with no explanation. 

Lord Dane Walker, brother to the Duke of Rydell, is infamous for racing fast carriages and breaking hearts. But when his brother is mortally injured, Dane inherits the responsibilities of the dukedom—duties that come with a dangerous secret which threatens everyone close to him. 

In London, Sandrine is astonished to learn that the charming, honorable man she met at the beach is really a disreputable rake. And the infuriating nobleman acts as though he barely knows her.

Who needs a wild rake? Certainly not Sandrine! With a little help from her friends, she transforms into a glamorous belle. She’s out to make Dane pay…but can she stop her traitorous heart from longing to surrender only to him?

The meet-cute had me smiling and sweetness followed during their encounters in her small village. We are kept on edge because Danny was hiding his true identity while they both hid their steamy, detailed fantasies of each other. So much happens in this well-written book! We get a secondary love story, racing, the mystery is solved, great friendships, and found family, figuratively and literally!

Raised by an overprotective mother, Sandrine yearns for adventure in her quiet seaside village. A handsome stranger sweeps her off her feet, only to mysteriously vanish. The charming man is revealed to be London’s disreputable Lord Dane Walker, a man with a dangerous secret. Can she resist the pull of the enigmatic nobleman? I adored Sandrine and Dane. It’s lovely to see Sandrine blossom into her own person. This is an exuberant and heartwarming romance. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC.
