This is not the first book by Alice Chetwynd Ley that I've read so I already knew that I like her books. Whereas I compared her book "Letters of a Spy" to a nice reliable cup of tea, "The Georgian Rake" has much more of the champaign in it that I compared the cup of tea to. This book kept me glued to the reader and I enjoyed every single page of it.
I loved the well developed, authentic and intersting characters and I loved the story itself. It is a fast-paced story, well plotted and really well written that made me "turn" the pages impatiently because I just had to know what would happen!
As for the story, well, I was a bit irritated when I read the blurb because I found that it was a bit different than the story that I read but nevertheless, I really loved this story.
When Isabell is coerced by her mother to agree to a profitable marriage with a known rake she has to give up all hope to marry the one who she has been in love with forever. Her sister Amanda though is no one to sit by idly while her beloved sister makes such a monumentous mistake and sets out to set things right. Amanda being Amanda, loving, charming, straight-forward and utterly reckless, some of her actions might be considered dangerous...at least. Fortunately there's no lack of knight's in shining armour to come to her rescue and very soon it is not just her safety that is at stake but also her heart...
I really loved this book and can definitely recommend it!
