Book Description

Original Publication Date: 6/1/2012

He swore he'd never love again...
She'd risk her heart time and again to prove him wrong...

Much to his aggravation, the wickedly handsome Duke of Sethe, is wanted by every husband-hunting, title-chasing female in the country, or so it seems. Twice betrayed by women he loved, Nicholas Leighton is no longer the gullible young fool he was in his youth. Having grown cool and cynical, as well as older and wiser, he has vowed to never again allow another woman to affect him emotionally, for he has learned his lessons and learned them well. So, when the breathtakingly lovely Ashleigh St. John suddenly and unexpectedly enters his life, as well as his home, he is determined to keep the alluring interloper at an emotional and physical distance. Unfortunately, he quickly discovers that some things are easier said than done.

Reckless and daring, Ashleigh St. John is an unconventional young lady with the heart of a hopeless romantic. When she meets Nicholas Leighton she is certain that she has met the man of her dreams, but unfortunately, the man of her dreams seems bound and determined to keep her at a distance, hiding his true emotions behind a self-erected wall of cool detachment and calculated indifference. But having glimpsed the wonderful man hiding behind the facade, she too is determined, determined to do whatever it takes to break through the intractable barriers that guard his heart, willing even, to surrender her innocence and time and again risk her ravaged heart to ultimately win his trust and more importantly his love.

Dear Reader: Warning: If you are looking for a hearts and flowers romance, this probably isn't the book for you. This story involves a damaged hero who is desperate to keep from being hurt again and will do just about anything (including acting like a complete jerk at times) to keep the heroine from breaking down the walls he's built around his heart. In addition, for those uncomfortable with considerable age differences, the hero is twenty-nine and the heroine is seventeen. (However, please keep in mind that this story is set in the 19th century, not modern day.)

The Reformed Rakes Series:
Book 1 – Until You (Nicholas)
Book 2 – You, and Only You (Alex)
Book 3 – When Only a Rake Will Do (Brendon)

(Although these books are part of a series, each can be read as a stand alone novel.)

Please note: This book was originally titled Forever & Always.

4.0 out of 5 stars An addictive and delicious read! 4 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Its been a long time since a story really pulled me into its grasp and this was a welcome distraction from normality, keeping me up quite late into the early hours to see how it ended! I really loved the escapism of the period it was set in and thought the author wrote it well. This is a great version of one of my favorite types of story ie typical bad boy turns good for his lady love, but she was a great character, not simpering or annoying at all! I do agree with another reviewer in that Nick's character was at times almost unbearable and boorish, but it didn't ruin it for me, I think that's a good sign that the writer can make you really angry with the character .At times his character was so nasty to her, almost bordering on violent that I wanted to scream at her to walk away! Again well done to the author for bringing this out in me. The only thing was that the 'reveal' to do with his past, I saw coming a mile off and considering the author did such a great job of building the back story, why he was so angry and disturbed, why he couldn't bring himself to believe in Ashleigh it all felt a bit rushed in the end. But it was a very sad reveal and brought the story full circle.
All in all really good and I shall be queuing up the others on my kindle! xx

I loved the book overall it's blissfully free from outside influences and concentrates on the main characters and their family.
The only complaint I have is that the girl was 17. Her wisdom however is shown to be that of a person much older and wiser yet she is shown in other places to be headstrong and reckless.
It's strange to me that she can be so forbearing at this young age for Nicholas when by all rights she should have been angry or hurt or dismayed yet she keeps hoping .... And finally thinks it's enough then she again starts to hope ...,
But the story otherwise is great it has memorable characters and they are all loveable
It's a bit different as well that there is no villain who is intent on harming either the H or H or kidnapping or rumours etc
I like that the story keeps to a circle of family and close friends and it makes it a very good read for a cosy winter afternoon ( even though I read it in the summer I could feel the winter snow;) )
I also like that the hero doesn't make a fool of himself at the end with James it's enough that he knew what really happened.

Read most of it before in other books, didn't feel it was really original. Felt that this was written by someone that had read quite a few books and thought, I'll write one. I don't believe for one second that a lot of the behaviour by the Duke would have happened. She would have had her maid with her, not allowed to go in coaches on her own with a single man, even if he was a duke... I was also surprised to see a young lady that hadn't had her debut yet, attend a ball and went straight in to a waltz, I'm pretty certain that etiquette would not have allowed this. Even her nightgown I'm sure an unmarried lady wouldn't have worn the ones described.
I have no idea if the author is American, but to me it felt like it was written by an American trying to sound English.
Saying that, I did carry on reading and it was okay. Not sure if I would read another one or not by this author. To me she doesn't do her research and there was nothing original in what was written. It's a shame as she is obviously a good writer.
