Shehanne Moore has the ability to write stories with a “spicy touch’’! She didn’t disappoint me with ‘The Writer and the rake’! Lovers of time travel romances, are in for a treat! Be ready for a rollercoaster ride of passion, this story is so much fun to read. I loved her characters Brittany and Mitchell!
What happens when writer, Brittany, is transported from the present to the Georgian era, and falls for Mitchell a real bad boy? All hell broke loose! Sparks started to flare and ignite a hot blazing passion. But.....is love possible for them even if they are from a different period of time? Can Brittany forget what she had lived in the future world and start a new life with Mitchell? What will she do?

I think I mentioned before how I hate romance heroines who are the paragon of all virtues. Well, Brittany is definitely not. This heroine is a vindictive, manipulative, chain-smoking alcoholic, and I love her. If romance heroes can be rakes, why shouldn't the heroine be a 'rakette'?
Brittany arrives in 1765 dressed in nothing but a bathrobe, landing in Mitchell Kilgower's teenage son's bed. Mitchell, a long-suffering, brooding gentleman thinks his son has finally stopped being such a milksop and become a man, or rather the kind of man his father wants him to be. Brittany is just confused. She thinks her ex-boyfriend has murdered her and she is now in some sort of strange afterlife. Mitchell thinks she's insane.
Of course, one can't blame him as for all he knows, a woman has appeared out of nowhere and keeps babbling on about him being good fodder for her next romance novel. Mitchell's uncle and slightly incestuous aunt (or former sister-in-law) show up, and the only way Brittany's presence can be explained is in a lie hastily concocted by Fleming, Mitchell's son, that she is Mitchell's new God-fearing wife.
Hilariously unsuited to the role, Brit goes along with is because she needs to figure out a way to get back to the 21st century. She may be a romantic novelist, but unlike her naive heroines, she's not going to swoon and fall into Mitchell's arms just because he has a gorgeous body and amazing cheekbones. All the same, there is an attraction simmering beneath the surface of her pretense.
As for Mitchell, he starts out wanting to get rid of her, but he is by turns enraged and captivated by a woman the likes of which he'd never seen. A modern heroine unleashed on an unsuspecting 18th century world is a force to be reckoned with.
Brittany wreaks havoc everywhere she goes. She is a truly comedic heroine, though Ms. Moore deftly alerts the reader to how easily things could turn tragic if these characters don't find love very soon.
Mitchell treats Brittany terribly, though she's no picnic herself. However, she shows real resiliency and even keeps writing while in her 17th century imprisonment. One of the most beautiful lines of the book is, "A writer could write without paper, without ink, without hope."
Time is working against them as Brittany can't control her travels between centuries, but love might just bring them together in the end.
