Book Review - The Rebel and the Rake by Emily Sullivan


Rafe Davies is known for being a charismatic rake. However, in reality he is working for the crown as one of their most valuable agents. Rafe is both relentless and reckless and there isn't a mission that he couldn't complete before. But then he meets lady's companion Miss Sylvia Sparrow while on assignment and Rafe finds himself distracted by her beauty.

Most women throw themselves at Rafe's feet but, Sylvia had enough of those type of men. She once trusted a man and she paid dearly for her mistake. Sylvia is determined to ignore Rafe but, during a few chance encounters, she is surprised by Rafe's personality and finds herself attracted to him. She realizes that Rafe might be keeping a few secrets of his own.

I thought the book was an easy and enjoyable read. I did find that the middle of the book was a bit slow and I thought the ending took forever. When they figured out the bad guy behind the blackmailing scheme the novel still had around 75 or so additional pages from the end. If you like steamy romance novels then you will enjoy this book.
