HE’S MADE A DANGEROUS WAGER
Ambrose Worthing is no gentleman. He’s a proud cold-hearted rake who’s determined to stay a bachelor forever. He enjoys bedding a different woman every night without the risk of falling in love. When he hears about a wager over the seduction and ruination of the daughter of his father’s best friend, he knows he must intervene. Committing himself to the bet, he agrees to seduce Lady Alexandra Rockford—for her own good. He never expected the lady in question to be a beautiful, fiery creature who has passions of her own that call to his guarded heart.
SHE’S VOWED NEVER TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
Alexandra Rockford has sworn off men, her heart still broken from the false promises of a childhood sweetheart who left her to marry an heiress. When she stumbles into Ambrose outside of a country ball, she knows the rake is trouble. His smile, his touch, his forbidden kiss are all too tempting but being with him would ruin her. Determined to enjoy herself without falling in love, Alex can’t help but let her defenses down with the too charming rake. But when she discovers Ambrose is seducing her to win a bet, it will take everything Ambrose has to prove to her that he is worthy to love her.

I love Lauren Smith and any time the chance to read one of her books comes along, I always grab onto it! And how fortunate for me that this time it was The Rakehell's Seduction because I have been in the mood for historicals something fierce the past week or two, so it was just like getting to have my cake and eat it too. The Rakehell's Seduction was absolutely fabulous and I positively adored it!
Alex is a strong heroine, she's funny, a little mischievous, and she doesn't care for London or society at all. She loves the freedom she has living in the country and she's not going to let any man ruin that for her. Of course, it's not as easy to remember that when Mr. Ambrose Worthing, the notorious rakehell, arrives to seduce her and even though she knows better, she can't help the way she feels about him. But I can't blame her, she might give him her heart more readily than she meant to, but she definitely makes him work for her in the end. Alex is smart and lovely and I loved her.
And while there were times that Mr. Worthing made me roll my eyes at his foolish thoughts and made me want to shake him, I still loved that old rake! He's charming and fun and sexy and just good. Ambrose doesn't think he'd be good enough for or enjoy only one woman, but he can't resist Alex. He's determined, protective, and so sweet - Ambrose is just a wonderful hero!
The Rakehell's Seduction isn't a long read, but that didn't make any less good or full of heart. It was so fun, entertaining, and enjoyable to read. I loved every minute of it from the moments that made me laugh to the moments that made my heart ache. It was a delightful, passionate, excellent tale and I can't wait to read the next book!
The Rakehell's Seduction can be read as a standalone, it's told from Ambrose and Alex's POV, and they do get their happily-ever-after.
