      Me and Virginia Henley go way back. (I'm going to sound old here but I'm under 40.lyI swear) Her book "The Hawk and the Dove" was my first romance novel. It was sitting on my sister's nightstand, I loved the cover, picked it up, and started reading and haven't stopped since. That was in the early '90s. Sowe go way back and I'm very partial to her books. If you're already a fan then you know her books are long and very immersed in lots and lots of history and details. I personally love that but s [...]

      3 stars.Historical fiction has long been a favorite genre of mine. For me, there are basically three types of historical fiction: the somewhat biographical story; the bodice-ripper (Fabio look-alike on the cover); and historical romance magic. Clearly, the last is my favorite by far. This one, unfortunately, does not fall into that category.Lord Rakehell is well-written, set in Victorian England and is rife with historical characters, including the Edward, the Prince of Wales who features promin [...]

      Lord James and Lady Anne, at first seem to have one sided relationship. Anne is in love with james and he for the first part of the book didn't even know she existed. That changed pretty quickly when, Anne became the prince of wales, new wifes lady and waiting. Anne and James start spending more time together.Their relationship, is quite interesting they both speak out adventure,and do not spend to society strict standards.The story was welll written, the characters were very interesting. I did [...]

      This book wasn't what I wanted it to be. This was WAY too historical for me, and was very slow moving.

      More intrigue than sex. And I like my romances the other way around.

      Virginia Henley has written many historical romance novels that have pleased fans for years. Her latest novel, Lord Rakehell is no exception. It is a romance filled with lush imagery, details of life at court, and a poignant romance. Henley's ability to transport the reader back in time is amazing, as well as, her well thought out plot points and her knack for character development. Readers who are looking for a good romance by a well known author need look no further, Lord Rakehell is just what [...]

      Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley**THIS WAS A DNF****THIS IS A DNF REVIEW**I consider myself a fan of historical romance but I did not care for this book. That's not to say that this is poor representation of the genre. It isn't. But this book just wasn't for me. I'm giving this book 2 stars because although I didn't like it, it may still be a great book.The lead female character is Anne and I liked her well enough. She seemed very sweet and kind. She was also a very good frien [...]

      From the time she was no more than a child, Anne Curzon- Howe has been infatuated with James Hamilton. The moment the older Hamilton called the pretty young girl a Wild Irish Rose, her esteem for him multiplies exponentially. Anne and her brother Montagu were of Irish blood and undesirable to their father's purely English children by his first wife, especially the petulant half sister Emily, whose disdain for her half-siblings is epic.Years later, the handsome rake,and heir apparent to the Duked [...]

      An absolutely refreshing love story written by Virginia Henley! From the moment that Lord James Hamilton, in an effort to cheer her up, told twelve year old Lady Anne Curzon-Howe that “she was as beautiful as a Wild Irish Rose”, she was smitten. Five years later, seventeen year old Anne is posing as eighteen and having her first season, and she’s got her sights set on one man, Lord James Hamilton. When James sees Anne at Newmarket, he mistakes Anne for the mistress of Henry Fane (who is An [...]

      When I began reading Lord Rakehell I was hopeful I had found another talented author. I enjoyed the characters and the way Ms. Henley described the scenery. The storyline, though predictable was enticing and her love scenes left you breathless. So why such a low mark? I was disappointed when Ms. Henley's character fell out of the time period and began using words from todays language during several scenes. Its as if she forgot what era she was writing in and it was done enough that it hindered t [...]

      The writing was tedious and boring; it IS possible to discuss people by name, without throwing in their titles too; worst of all - Edward Albert, Prince of Wales, was NEVER EVER referred to as "Teddy" by his family or closest friends - he was Bertie - when an author either can't be bothered getting this basic historical detail correct, or capriciously changes it for unknown reasons, it makes one suspect every other aspect of her supposed historical data.

    • Mskychick says:

      1-1/2 starsThe prose is awkward and stilted Neither the hero or the heroine engaged me. ALL of the characters felt like cardboard cut-outs. It felt like. The book is twice as long as it needs to be because she had to cram in every darn fact she researched (which made it seem like an amateur book). And it's boring, boring, boooorring.

    • Lynda Brunelle says:

      Virginia Henley is one if my favorite authors. She does historical romance so well! Her books are funny, sexy and she has a way of bringing history to life. With Lord Rakehell she did not disappoint!

      For the record this is my wife Rosemary's book and Virginia is an author whom she has much respect for. I believe this book stormed some sort of gauntlet between and .

      Hot read! Loved it.

      Good in the beginning when they were playing their little games. Got extremely boring about the other characters. Ending was a bit too fast for my taste.
