I enjoyed this book and will read the next Darcie Wilde book.

This one has nice historical elements to it and it is definitely romantic, but I would recommend it for those who don't mind the moderate heat level to their romance.
Sophia Rose
I do not mind a few pages of tintalating bedroom scenes that pertain to character development.

Lord of the Rakes was the first book I’ve read by Darcie Wilde, but it will not be the last as I will watch for any new releases from this author. This is a well written, very spicy, hot historical romance. I was very pleasantly surprised with this read. This book was tantalizing and a different pace than a normal sweet romance, although it is exciting and definitely worth it.

The hero is, Phillip Montcalm, a true to form second son among the ton of society, and a rake in the truest sense. He does have some morals and keeps away from virgins or any lady unwilling to take part in his care free giving life. He likes his ladies willing to divulge in delights of the flesh but not of the heart. Therefore he became known as the Lord of the Rakes. From a very noble family he is received by the ton and cream of society and publically maintains being a gentleman. A cheating lover results in the hero taking a second look at his bored and predictable mundane life. Deciding to find a new lover he begins a search for something of a change and out of the ordinary.

Who does he see across a crowded room, Lady Caroline Delamarre. This particular lady has been, more or less, surviving in the country. Caroline’s mother suffered depression and was kept away from all society by her husband and son, Caroline’s father and brother. Caroline was allowed small freedoms and did go to local parties and had local friends, but she really craved something more. With the death of her parents her brother refuses to allow her to become part of society in town. Now she is allowed only to be around her brothers’ friends, of which she has no plans to make a match with.

I first received a copy of this book in the mail as a lovely surprise. I had not heard of the book or the author, but I've been on a historical romance kick lately so I was willing to give it a try. I got a pleasant surprise though it sat me back on my heels a few times when the story didn't act like I thought it would.

Normally, I would move into the summary and then discuss my impressions, but I'm going to tackle this review a bit differently. I'm going to blend my summary with my impressions.

Many times a book claims to be about a rake or has that in the title and it turns out that the character is not anything of the sort. I think the term 'rake' meant something of a harsher nature back in the day than it does now. It's more romanticized these days I think like we do with our gentleman thieves, mercenary soldiers, mafia dons, gang leaders, MC bikers, etc. I hear it and I picture a bad boy character- the bad boy who just needs the right woman to save him. I muse on this because of the direction this book took my thoughts.

The rake in this story, Phillip Montcalm, by the societal rules of the day, was indeed a true rake. He stopped short of seducing virgins and the very young ladies, the unavailable or ravishing the unwilling, but he truly went about his business with the ladies delving into sensual delights keeping stuff strictly physical. He had a reputation and even a title given by society because of it, 'Lord of the Rakes'. He doesn't flaunt his behavior, he acts the gentleman in public and comes from a noble family so he is still received by Society's hostesses, but he is watched warily by the mamas and papas of young innocent daughters. He does no real worthwhile things, but is fairly typical of the rich, idle sons of the nobility.

I enjoyed this book and will read the next Darcie Wilde book. Phillip has been handed life on a silver platter and likes his lifestyle of wine , gaming, and women, but is beginning to be bored. Caroline has been a prisoner in her own home since her mother died. Caroline wants to be free, Phillip wants a purpose in his life. They come together as lovers, become friends and eventually find what they are looking for with each other. Lively love scenes and good story line. This is one that your mother would not approve of reading.

I am conflicted about this book, but I’ll start off by telling you everything that I felt was done right.

Lady Caroline has grown up in the country. Her father — and after his death, her brother — never let her go to London, claiming that she didn’t have the constitution or moral character to handle city life. Her mother, you see, used to be a lovely socialite, but at some point she became ill, and was confined to rest, and given medication, and she never really left the house again. Her mother told Caroline many stories about London, and Caroline grew up wishing to be free, to escape the house and do whatever she wants.

The story opens after Caroline has received a letter that her trust fund is doing quite well. The trust fund that she was not aware of. Her mother had an inheritance, and left it to Caroline, but her father (and then brother) kept it a secret from her so that she wouldn’t go off and do crazy things with her independence. Since her choices are to either stay trapped or run away, Caroline runs away to London.

She plans to stay in town only for a few weeks, to be a bridesmaid to her friend, and then to run off to France so that her brother can’t force her back home or marry her off. Marriage would mean the loss of her freedom, so she is definitely not into that. She tells her friend that, since she never plans to marry, she might take a lover. It’s not like she’s overly concerned about her reputation.

Philip Montcalm is a second son, and is known as the Lord of the Rakes, because he takes a lot of lovers. As his story opens, he’s just been jilted, and he’s feeling rather dissatisfied with his lifestyle. His father gives him plenty of money, but the balls and the gambling are feeling a bit tedious.
