The Union of the Rakes Book 1

by Eva Leigh

Genre: Historical Romance

Publisher: Avon

Publication Date: November 26, 2019

In the first book in Eva Leigh’s new Union of the Rakes series, a bluestocking enlists a faux suitor to help her land an ideal husband only to be blindsided by real desire…
Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits rather than the complications of society matches. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to “build” the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace’s colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires.
To further his own research on English society, Sebastian agrees to let Grace transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing—albeit fake—rake. Between secret lessons on how to be a rogue and exaggerated public flirtations, Grace’s feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn’t asked him to help her marry someone else…
Sebastian is in love with brilliant, beautiful Grace, but their bargain is complete, and she desires another. Yet when he’s faced with losing her forever, Sebastian will do whatever it takes to tell her the truth, even if it means risking his own future—and his heart.

Her solution; To transform her colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, into the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch the eye of the man she desires.
In exchange for funding his passage on an expedition leaving London in a few months, Sebastian allows Grace to transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing, fake rake.
Grace’s feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction.
Sebastian is in love with brilliant, beautiful Grace, but their bargain is complete, and she desires another.
Will Sebastian do what it takes to win Grace for himself?
This book is a mixture of humor and unexpected love.
I gave this book 4.7 of 5.0 stars for plot, story line and character development. It is both sweet and comical to see Sebastian’s development from academic to rake. He is the epitome of a stumbling albeit lovable hero.
I really liked reading this book. It is the first book in this new series, The Union of the Rakes.

I look forward to the next book in this series, “Would I Lie to the Duke” due out in August 2020.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
