When Lady Rebecca Eversley is left ravished by the Earl of Newthorpe and facing ruination, she has the choice to point her pretty little nose in the air and face the gossips of the Ton or scurry off to the country to live out her life as an old maid. When she meets Lord Daniel Ramsey, a notorious rake, she decides on the former course of action.
Daniel has been given an ultimatum, marry before his father dies or lose the majority of his inheritance money. Rebecca seems the perfect candidate, especially once rumours about her start to circulate in the drawing rooms of Mayfair.
When Newthorpe is found dead on the morning of their wedding, the people they care about find themselves suspects in the case. Who murdered Newthorpe and can Rebecca ever get over what he did to her?

SAVED BY A RAKE is a touching and passionate historical romance.
The beautiful Lady Rebecca Eversley is engaged to be married to the Earl of Newthorpe. During a visit to her husband-to-be with her maid, a horrible and cruel thing happens, leaving her hurt, shocked and ruined.
She is going to be ostracized but she refuses to hide and grieve. She is strong and proud and she refuses to feel ashamed for something she's not responsible for.
Some light comes back in her life when she feels an unexpected attraction for her brother's long-time friend, Lord Ramsey.
Daniel is a well-known rake but he needs a wife and doesn't care about what society thinks of the stunning Lady Rebecca. He's fascinated and he feels startlingly protective towards her. But when the Earl of Newthorpe is found dead, Rebecca is in big troubles...
I loved both protagonists; they are complete and so well-presented. Daniel is touchingly caring and kind.
Rebecca has been hurt, badly and in the worst way a woman can be hurt, but she's so strong and I admired and appreciated her because of her attitude. She handles her relationship with Daniel in a way that makes the reader feels proud of her; she has fears and uncertainties she tries to overcome with her new husband's help and affection.
Their love story is strongly felt since the beginning and it develops not only in an entrancing passion but also in a lovely and touchable harmony and closeness.
This novel is realistic, moving and absorbing.
