Shehanne Moore has a way of knocking me off my book-reading perch! Each time Impicknup one of her books her characters burst into my mind and wreak havoc. The protagonists of The Writer andThe Rake are no exception. Brittany and Mitchell vibrate with a delicious raw energy and an indifference to the norms of narrative that took me on a wild and thrilling ride. The time-travel story kept me on my toes, teetering on the cliff-edge of tension - will she/won't she go back from 1765 to her "real" life in modern times? As the pages whizzed past, I was shouting "No, don't find the portal" at them because I couldn't bear this passionate claws-out couple to part. Mitchell Killgower is dark and dangerous, Brittany is dramatic and dangerous, but one of the delights is this story is watching the pair of them crack open their armour to let each other approach. They do so with a tenderness that is touching. Excitingly written and vividly portrayed, this is a must-read. On a scale of one to ten I give it ten!

Ms Moore has a gift for writing the unconventional. In a way that is intelligent, rich in wit, and heart-stoppingly beautiful. Yes, beautiful, her choice of words and the way she combines them poetically bold and eloquently lucid.

Her characters don’t lie demurely on the page awaiting gentle discovery, instead they rise up from the start to smack you in the mush (British slang for mouth). They are flawed, often graceless, their redemption hard won—and they are all the more delicious for it. Her plots are far from ordinary; instead they are twisted and tangled and messy like life itself—laugh, because if you don’t you will cry.

And Ms Moore brings all this into play in The Writer and The Rake. Brittany will make your eyes water—but you have to adore her misbehavior—and Mitchell will kick your pulse into a faster beat, because his reaction to Brittany is just so damn hot. His patience, his control, his defences (watch them crumble), his heart—this is a real man, jaded but never beaten.

A time-travel tale with a difference, which I cannot recommend too highly.

This was such a fun novel from the first. Brittany Carter is a memorable heroine: feisty, sassy and completely clueless when it comes to knowing her own heart's desire. Mitchell Killgower is a Regency hero with a difference - he's not your average chivalrous, gallant hero. But he finds that although he's used to having his way with women, he's never met a woman like Brittany before.

The story was hugely entertaining and made me laugh out loud. There were plenty of twists and turns in the plot and the author kept me guessing as to how it would all end - right to the end. Brittany and Mitchell become more self aware as the novel progresses, and neither of them is the same person by the end of it. Brittany especially comes to realise what she really wants out of life - and the answer surprises her.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a quirky romantic romp with a difference.

Give me an historical romance with pale, delicate heroines and alpha heroes flexing their six packs and I'll hand it back to you. Unread. But give me a historical time travel romance by Shehanne Moore and I'll grab it with both hands, dive in there and have a whale of a time. I certainly did with The Writer and the Rake, as I have with all the author's previous books. 100% entertainment, with the 'bad girl' unwitting time traveller, Brittany Carter and the Georgian rake - Mitchell Killgower - sparring off each other... when he's not stealing her cigarettes. Add Francis Dashwood and his notorious Hellfire Club, a son Mitchell cannot stand, plus a distinctly dodgy ex-husband, and this novel takes the reader on an often hilarious journey with a heroine your mother would not want you to be friends with but with whom you'd be guaranteed a rollercoaster time. This is the second in series but reads as a standalone. Loved it and looking forward to her next book.
