Another fantastic Cynster novel,
By A Customer
This review is from: Rake's Vow (Cynster Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
I was surprised to read some of the reviews of 'A Rakes Vow'. Many of the ctitics don't seem to have understood the book properly. Vane is so named because he always knows which way the wind is blowing, as said by Minnie in 'A Rakes Vow', and also by quite a few people in 'Devils Bride'. He succumbed to the thought of marriage quicker and quieter than Devil because he knew instinctively that Patience was the one for him. And why do people keep saying that Patience wasn't right for him, that she was too slow getting to the alter? That's the whole point of Cynster books; the reluctant beautiful young woman and the gorgeous hunk who uses all his charm, sex appeal and just plain Cynsterness to persuade her to marry him! It would have been a very short, very boring book if Patience had happily agreed to marry Vane as soon as he asked her. Personally, I thought it was yet another fantastic novel by Stephanie Laurens who is, in my humble opinion, one of the best authors of all time.
