Book 1 of The Rake's Handbook

A witty new Regency Romance series with a unique take on the infamous London marriage mart from debut author Sally Orr.

The definitive guide to seduction...

The Rake's Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies-who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook-but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross's notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.

Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross's country estate. She's appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industrial plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross's seductive ways. But he keeps coming around...impressing her with his vision for England's future and stunning her with his smiles.

In Orr’s pleasant Regency romance debut, Ross Thornbury writes The Rake’s Handbook, which makes him famous—and infamous—as a libertine. He escapes to the small town of Macclesfield to build a foundry, settle down, and perhaps regain his respectability. Elinor Colton, recently widowed, owns land that Ross’s business needs, but she is concerned about the environmental and human costs of his venture. Ross and Elinor’s sensual and emotional connection is tested by their opposition in business, as well as by the risk to Elinor’s reputation if she’s seen associating with Ross. Elinor is still in mourning for her husband, and relatives on both sides pop up to cause trouble. Orr’s style is vivacious and her characters are interesting, but a penchant for repetition and the flat narration of important information weigh her light comedy down irreparably. The conceit of the handbook is unique and clever, but it never plays as great a role in the narrative as its placement in the title suggests. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Nov.)
