Once a Rake (Drake's Rakes)

Once a Rake (Drake's Rakes) by Eileen Dreyer

 October 29, 2013

All he wants is her help . . .Colonel Ian Ferguson may be a rake, but he's no traitor. Accused of trying to kill the Duke of Wellington, the disgraced Scotsman is now a fugitive-from the law, the army, and the cunning assassin who hunts him. Wounded and miles from his allies, Ian finds himself at the mercy of an impoverished country wife. The spirited woman is achingly beautiful . . . and hiding some dangerous secrets of her own.

All she needs is his heart . . . 

She was a child nobody wanted. Now for Lady Sarah Clarke, holding on to her vanished husband's crumbling estate is her final chance to earn respectability. She knows that hiding the devastatingly handsome Ferguson will jeopardize her home. Common sense demands that she turn him in. But a single, delirious kiss shatters her resolve . . . and awakens a passion that neither of them can escape.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Typically I read 1-3 books A DAY. It took me 3 days to get 60% into this book. The beginning was very long winded and to be honest, boring. The plot, premise, all of it sounded great, but getting to the action, the interesting parts took forever. Once you hit that 60% mark, the book begins to pick up. Things get exciting and enjoyable. If you can make it through the slow half of the book, I think you'll enjoy the rest of it. It's just hard to make yourself push through it.
