Format: Kindle Edition
Things are going from bad to worse for poor Henrietta. First, the young governess accidentally intercepts a thief breaking into her employer's home; then she gets knocked over the head and left for dead. For a moment, her situation looks up as her dashing neighbor rescues her from a ditch. But the diversion is short lived. As soon as she returns home, she is accused of colluding with the thief to steal the family's jewels. Henrietta panics and runs, stowing away on a carriage bound for London. A carriage that belongs to none other than Rafe, that mysterious stranger who saved her.

Rafe is quite taken with Henrietta, though he doesn't want to be. He's a man full of contradictions. He doesn't deny his reputation as a rake, but he's prickly about it. He is a widower who doesn't want to talk about his wife. And he is both intrigued and irritated by Henrietta's frankness, her honesty, and her naivete. He decides to help her track the jewels to clear her name and, in close quarters, they quickly fall for one another.

I like Henrietta. She is virtually incapable of subterfuge. She is charitable and refreshing and she owns her feelings and desires. I enjoyed watching Rafe succumb to her charm. He is a hard man, driven by tragedy and guilt, but in her company, his frozen heart begins to melt.

The story was simple but I liked it well enough. I thought it was a little slow moving, especially in the beginning and there were times I had to fight the urge to skim ahead to the dialogue. There are a few developments that I felt worked out just a little too easily for our heroine. And there wasn't much to speak of in the realm of secondary characters or subplots. But the sex was good, even if Henrietta went from an innocent to a wanton at lightning speed.

It was ok. 3 stars.

The talented Marguerite Kaye has outdone herself once again with Rake with a Frozen Heart, a seductively readable tale of blazing sensuality, nail-biting intrigue and dangerous desire that will hold readers spellbound from beginning to end!

When Henrietta Markham had gone chasing after her mistress' mischievous pug, the vivacious governess never imagined that she would find herself attacked by a ruthless housebreaker - or that she would wake up the next morning in the Earl of Pentland's bed! Plain-looking governesses who are more interested in charity work and other people's welfare than in beautiful gowns and making an advantageous match don't usually attract the attentions of lascivious scoundrels like Rafe St. Alban. But when the rakish earl had come across the spirited Miss Markham, unconscious in a ditch on his property, he had no other choice but to offer her sanctuary until she recovers. Henrietta had been absolutely flabbergasted when she realized that she had been attacked by a perfidious burglar and that Rafe St. Alban had given her shelter in his magnificent house - but she was positively bowled over when she realized how devastatingly attractive society's most scandalous rake was in the flesh...

After the abysmal failure of his first marriage, Rafe St.Alban had vowed to steer clear of relationships and matters of the heart and to only indulge in transient relationships with women who are well aware that although he's more than allowing to share his body with them, he will never allow them to breach the impenetrable defenses which he'd erected around his heart.

** spoiler alert ** It was with great pleasure to have received this book from Marguerite for review. I just fell in love with the book cover. I just couldn't put the book down. I love that the book started with Rafe finding a young lady passed out in his estate. She woke up too find such a hunk but to later find out that he was a rake with no feelings at all. The plot about the stolen emeralds from her boss Lady Ipswich was an excellent way to have Henrietta and Rafe fall utterly in love with each other. I loved it that he was known as a Rake but as Henrietta got to know him more he didn't show the characteristics of a Rake.

I have two favorite parts in this book. My favorite is when he goes to Lady Ipswich to make her confess that she stole her own Emeralds because she was in need of money. So she co-plotted to make it seem like someone was trying to break in to the house and blame Henrietta for stealing her necklace. My second favorite part of the book was when Rafe tells Henrietta that he had killed his wife and unborn child. I was in total shock just like Henrietta. I was like wow what the hell, she was with a killer all this time. But then later found out that his wife just jumped out the window because she was so unhappy with herself, him and being pregnant. He was just punishing himself because he didn't get to save her and his child. Guilt is all that he had left in order for him to punish himself from what he couldn't have prevented. Guilt made a Rake build a hospital to help all the women that have children from other Rakes like him. Loved that at the end love over powered his guilt and they were able to be happy together....

I highly recommend this book to all the readers. Get your sneakers read to go run to your nearest book store next month to buy Rake with a Frozen Heart....
