    One thought on “Ravished by the Rake”

    1. I love Louise Allen's historical romances; she writes such strong female leads, and this book is no exception. 'Ravished by the Rake' is the first book in the 'Danger & Desire' trilogy. It starts in India when various characters from the mini-series are about to board a ship for a three-month voyage to England. A large proportion of the book is set on and around the ship 'Bengal Queen'. This book gets the trilogy off to an excellent start, and I look forward to reading the next two books.

    2. Dita is a hellion of a woman and I absolutely love her! She refuses to believe she can't do something simply because she's a woman. She's hopelessly in love with Alistair, frequently remembering their time together in her youth. Alistair on the other hand is completely cynical towards love for reasons you find out late in the book and has no recollection of their time together. The journey the two take in learning about each other's pasts as well as how they fit into each other's futures is an e [...]

    3. Hero and heroine knew each other growing up. Now they're both in India, getting ready to go back to England. She was sent out for a year to allow her scandal to die down; he left after a big fight with his dad. There's still a huge attraction between them, although he doesn't remember what happened the night he left. She believes in love. He doesn't-- thinking love equals betrayal. But she is still very susceptible to him, and he thinks she's a worldly, sophisticated woman. One he somehow feels [...]

    4. Ok, let me start off that it has been a crazy month and I just need a quick read to get through this time. I have to say that Harliquien novels are for that. I saw that Louise Allen came out with a new series. It's not really new since it has been publish in England before here. Who cares, right?I guess I should get to the nitty gritty of this book and not focus on when it was originally published.Allen's current series is called Danger and Desire. Sounds intriguing, doesn't it? There is a lot a [...]

    5. Delicioso!Apesar de metade da historia se passar dentro de um navio, durante uma viagem da Índia para a Inglaterra, a historia não ficou maçante.A mocinha, para fugir de um escândalo, passa 8 anos morando na Índia, e na viagem de volta, reencontra o seu primeiro amor, o homem que roubou a sua virtude e que não se lembra de nada! Ele, claro, acha que por conta do escândalo, ela é uma mulher sem moral e a julga mal. E ela mostra que moral, ela tem muita, ela apenas não se importa com a op [...]

    6. I loved Perdita. Her passion and her strength made her a marvellous heroine. I loved how she took on the ton and her detractors head on - how she made a weakness a strength and ensured she wasn't seen as a victim. Alistair was masterful and I enjoyed seeing him fall in love and come to realise how much she meant to him. Re-read 01/02/2015 - I reread this and must say I enjoyed it even better the second time around. I enjoyed Dita. She has so much personality, her ability to make the best of her [...]

    7. First in a series, that I yet again managed to read in completely the wrong order. Knowing what would happen to everyone overall failed to spoil the fun, however. A delightful pair of protagonists here, and lots of enchanting secondary characters, more of whom deserved their own books than actually got to have their stories told. A lovely link into the next book of the set at the end too.

    8. Un poco lento al principio pero se va poniendo más interesante conforme la historia avanza. Es la introducción de los personajes y de la historia que imagino que escritora desarrollará mucho mejor en los siguientes libros.

    9. I wasn't certain that I would enjoy this book as it takes the Regency heroine and places her in Calcutta, but I should have known that Louise Allen is not to be faulted. She is an excellent storyteller.

    10. Have you ever read a book so poorly written you thought, well shit I could have written that!? Yes, I read the whole thing and enjoyed parts but the plot was at best convenient at times and at worst just ridiculous.

    11. libro soso y aburrido que no dice nadalos personajes sin matices y la historia cumple con su papel de historia romantica sin mas pretensiones
