Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is playing matchmaker in Regency London. . . only it seems she's placed a curse on the lovers instead.

~~He was late to his own wedding~~

Simon is known as Lord Rakehell, so any sane woman would be wary of wedding a man of his reputation. He loves Georgiana, and is determined to prove it to her, but how can he overcome his wedding-day blunder?

~~She was heartbroken by the scandal~~

Georgiana knew the dangers of falling instantly in love with a celebrated rake, but even she had not expected him to show up for their nuptials with ladies-of-the-evening in tow. Now she must determine whether Simon's protestations of love are genuine, or if she is being led astray by the passion he continues to incite in her.

First Line

“You are a scandal! It is a wonder you dare to show your face here, after what you have done.”

Taken from the first chapter and not the prologue. Sounds like this one is off to a good start!

What I thought of this book.

This one was recommend to me by Lexie @ (un)Conventional Book Views as she was having a Historical Romance challenge for COYER (Clean Out Your E-Reader).  She really enjoys this author and I can see why. It’s a short romance story but it was really cute.

Aphrodite is bored and  so she talks  Ares leaving Mt. Olympus and finding some humans to mess with, she wants to find someone true love but he would rather curse them and so you get the curse of true love.

Simon is called Lord Rakehell because of his rakish ways and while attending a ball he  gets scolded by the Dowager for being scandalous. It was actually his friend Lord Wastrel who was being so scandalous this time. The Dowager ask Georgiana to help her settle the matter of who he was.

“We rakes and rogues do share several similar qualities,” he offered. “But I have been abroad the past fortnight, so I cannot claim credit for my friend’s scandals.”

After a little touch from Aphordite these two are destined to be together or are they? Something goes wrong and Aphrodite can’t believe her spell didn’t work, so she has to stick around to see what happens.

Lord Rakehell’s Love is a fun insta-love romance. Simon is adorable and Georgiana is amusing and the only thing I wish for would be a little bit more character development but because it’s a short story you don’t really get that.  Since it’s short I can’t say a lot about it as I don’t want to give anything away. I do know that I can’t wait to give Lord Wastrel a try because it will be fun to see him eat some of his comments from this book.

    Glad you liked it, Stormi! I read it at Lexxie’s recommendation as well. (in December) I’m now reading Lord Wastrel for the mini-challenge and it’s great so far!
