Book Description

Determined to escape a match arranged by her father, Lady Amanda Gilbertson hides from Lord Lesley Earnshaw in a tree in his mother's garden. There, at midnight, Amanda encounters the black-masked Captain Rakehell. No fop like her intended could sweep her into an embrace as potent as the Captain's. Thief or not, he has stolen her heart -- and Amanda is determined to learn his identity.

"A rousing Regency romp."
-- Harriet Klausner, The Best Reviews

"There is something going on every minute in this lighthearted romp."
-- Virginia DeWeese, Rendezvous

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun! 1 Mar. 2006
By Tracey Eller - Published on
What a fun book!!! If you're looking for a deep, serious plot, this isn't it. ;) Lots of fast paced lines, kewel twists and turns, terrific irony. The humor and almost frantic pace remind me of those black and white comedies Cary Grant used to do with Katharine Hepburn. Which I adore, btw, even though I can't for the life of me remember what they're called.

Amanda's and Lesley's families are longtime friends and have decided they should marry. She does not have fond memories of him and he doesn't like being blackmailed by his mother, so they each set out to get out of the engagement by making the other cry off. Throw in a Zorro-ish second plot about him wearing a mask and getting mistaken for a thief then recruited by Bow Street and you have a great ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Regency 21 April 2011
By Caffey - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Captain Rakehell was a fun regency romance. Much did seem unbelievable for the era but it made for some smiles and cheering up while reading. It did get confusing with the various characters, like the thiefs and others introduced as family and friends. They were put into the story so fast that when reading on, it was often needed to go back and remember who they were. Even with these issues, its worth the read for some fun time reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Book! 7 Jan. 2011
By Linda Wisdom - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Captain Rakehell when it was originally published. Loved it then and still do. I enjoy reading Regencies and Lynn Michaels books are just perfect for a rainy afternoon read.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Regency Romp! 21 Feb. 2011
By feather boa - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Lynn Michaels has managed to capture the essence of the Regency period in a clever little comedy of manners that I venture to say would make Jane Austen smile. Mistaken identities, meddling relatives and a Countess who has fainting down to an art form are just a few of the obstacles that stymie two people determined not to honor their family's wishes to be betrothed and mark Captain Rakehell as a thoroughly enjoyable Regency romp.
2.0 out of 5 stars didn't like it 21 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the idea of it but it just didn't work for me. I read a ton of romances and this one just didn't come together like I wanted. Needed more interaction and developing if the romance. Fell in love too soon and with no good reason.
