Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Stuart takes a break from paranormals and romantic thrillers (Risk the Night) to launch a historical romance series about three sisters unexpectedly orphaned and left destitute. In 1869 London, Miss Bryony Russell, the eldest sister, applies pseudonymously for the position of housekeeper for the household of Adrian Bruton, Earl of Kilmartyn, her father's former business partner and the man she believes may be responsible for her father's financial ruin and suspicious death. While the pampered Cecily, Lady Kilmartyn, refuses "Mrs. Greaves" because she bears some smallpox scars on her face, Adrian decides that Mrs. Greaves is the perfect person to revamp his shambles of a household. As Bryony searches for clues to Adrian's perfidy, she falls victim to his immense charm. Bemused by the estrangement between Adrian and his faithless wife, Bryony soon realizes that there is a hidden depth of character behind the earl's easy grace and seductive wiles. Stuart deftly combines scintillating romance with a hint of mystery in this straightforward story marred only by a somewhat abrupt conclusion.

Review

"Stuart is back with an absorbing gothic romance full of deadly secrets and shocking passion. While her heroine's pluck and determination are consistently admirable, her real triumph lies in the creation of a hero steeped in fascinating historic details and unbending in his sense of self and his devotion to the woman who finally touches his heart…Stuart's fans and new readers alike will find much to enjoy in this unconventional story and the series to follow." —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

"Anne Stuart is truly the queen of historical romance. In Never Kiss a Rake, she has written a captivating and engaging tale of a woman on a mission to clear her father's name, while falling in love with the very man whom she suspects." —The Romance Reviews
