A Rake's Guide to Pleasure (Huntington #2)

A Rake's Guide to Pleasure by Victoria Dahl is her second historical romance about the Huntington family.

The Dowager Lady Denmore, Emma, has come to London to raise some money. Her plan is to apply her skills at gambling to win the money she needs to live off of for the rest of her life. She plans to be gone before the Season begins and people who may recognize her come back to town.

When the Duke of Somerhart, one of London's most notorious bachelors, sees Emma he is immediately intrigued. Most ladies do not gamble. And none are likely to stand up to him in spite of his title. But Emma is not the usual Lady. In fact, she is not a Lady at all. She has never been married and has lied about everything in her quest for independence.

When the Duke begins to interfere with her plans, Emma tries to ignore their attraction. She only has a short time to make her money and be off. But fate has another plan for both of them.

Dahl is a writer who takes romance to a new level - both sexy and humorous, her stories capture readers and take them on a wild ride. This book is no exception with its nonconforming characters and the situations they get themselves into. A great read.
