Alex has had the title and obligations of viscount thrust upon him. He is completely unprepared and unwilling to assume his duties. His father preferred his older son and ignored the younger one, Alex.
The young women tossed at Alex by his well-meaning aunt bore Alex, but the fiery chaperone who is capable of throwing a copy of "Wuthering Heights" across the room when the plot irritates her is just what he likes.
This is a novella, so the scope of the story is appropriately narrow. Much of it is standard fare, but handled well. Many cliches are avoided: Felicity's adopted family is not cruel, her young cousin is not a feather-brained pain, no Big Misunderstandings, no over-the-top villains.
Favorite line : “No, that won’t do. I was rather hoping you’d join me in getting into trouble.”
The concept of The Rogue’s Rulebook written by men is hilarious (looking forward to more of the co-authors’ stories).
I was gifted a copy from the author for an honest review.
These poor debutantes, coming to the Forsythe house party, where they are assured to meet the uber-tall, handsome, charming 'rake' Alexander Evering, Viscount Lindsay. Lady Georgiana, Countess Forsythe has assured all that her nephew is available, although she neglected to tell him that he is to be the soup du jour.
Amongst the debs is Amelia and her chaperone-cousin, Felicity, who is protective as a mother bear. Felicity is the oh-no-not-me, I'm-never-going-to-wed, not quite a spinster, wallflower. When she turns her flashing eyes to Alex in admonishment, he is captivated. Try as she might, he is not about to let her be a wallflower. How compelling to feel his insecurities, after all he's the catch of the season. But, to him, they are prejudices based upon his looks, and that he'd rather not deal with. He prefers quiet simplicity and happiness-not being a rake. I love that he knows, from the start, what he wants and didn't play games with anyone (well, mayhap his aunt), it's so refreshing.
Felicity is a predictably insecure martyr. She has to support and protect her charge. And I want to thank the author for not making her a nonsensical child. She was a great support to the storyline.
I actually applauded the most manipulative scenes of our antagonist, Aunt G., Lady Forsythe. Her on-again, off-again fire was bonechilling.
This is the beginning of a new series Rules For A ROGUE. I am looking forward to the next volume.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
Carlyle is a new to me author and I found this novella to be perfectly delightful. I am not sure I'd like her full-length novels, but I did add a few more of her novellas to my list after reading this. The Regency story is simple and it is about a "rake" and a chaperone. However, the characterization was slightly different. The hero was more private than I expected and after his fiery interaction with the chaperone, elects to pursue her. The warm development of their relationship with no crazy misunderstandings or needless drama was nothing new, but it was charming to read. 5 stars.
