Editorial Reviews



"Jane Lark has an incredible talent to draw the reader in from the first page onwards."
Cosmo Chick Litan Book Reviews

"Any description that I give you would not only spoil the story but could not give this book a tenth of the justice that it deserves. Wonderful!"
Candy Coated Book Blog

"This book held me captive after the first 2 pages. If I could crawl inside and live in there with the characters I would."
A Reading Nurse Blogspot

"The book swings from truly swoon-worthy, tense and heart wrenching, highly erotic and everything else in between. A fantastic read that you won't regret picking up."
Best Chick

"I was just swept away by the vivid writing. I love Ms. Lark's style-beautifully descriptive, emotional and can I say, just plain delicious reading? This is the kind of mixer upper I've been looking for in romance lately."
Devastating Reads BlogSpot

“The romance pulls at the heartstrings.” 4.5* RT Book Reviews

From the Author

The Passionate Love of a Rake, 'Robert's story' as fans affectionately call it, (which I love - thank you fans :D ), is very different to The Illicit Love of a Courtesan. If you like authors who write the same book and characters over and over again in different settings, I am not the author for you, each book, even within a series, will honour the characters and take you into very individual stories. Robert, as you met him in The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, is an arrogant rake, with a chip on his shoulder. This is the Robert you will meet again. A rake in the full sense, who has lived his life hard and fast. I have studied the real rakes of the Regency period, those who courted the courtesans I studied for the first book in the Marlow Intrigues series, including Lord Byron and his set. Robert is a reflection of the things I have learned in letters and memoirs of the era, and he reflects the behaviour of these men who believed in Romance, for show, but not in fact. 

This story is very intense, extremely passionate and darkly romantic, and it is all about the relationship between Robert and Jane, a woman from his past...

The inspiration for this book, came from a visit to Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds, in England. It was the home of Henry VIII's sixth wife, after the King's death, and you'll discover my reflections on this throughout the book. It's amazing what an outing on a sunny day can do for the imagination of a writer. I strongly encourage you to read book one in the series first though, otherwise you'll know all the spoilers for the first story...
