Title: Rake Most Likely to Seduce (Rakes on Tour)
Author: Bronwyn Scott
Genre: Historical Romance
“All gamblers are alike in luck…”
Although when Nolan Gray enters a high-stakes game in Venice, facing a ruthless opponent, he’ll need more than just luck. He can’t start losing now…especially when the virginity of the enthralling Gianna Minotti hangs in the balance!
Fate is on his side, and Nolan seizes victory. But leaving in a gondola with Gianna and not collecting on his tantalizing prize pushes Nolan to his limits! Can he help her claim her freedom when really he wants to claim her for his own?
Gambler Nolan Gray and his three friends leave England behind for an European tour of adventure, revelry, romance and to make their way in the world. Settling in Venice, Nolan has a gift for playing cards. Entering a high-stakes game, Nolan meets a dangerous count. When the count puts up the virginity of his beautiful ward, Gianna Minotti, Nolan’s distaste is evident. When he wins the hand and Gianna, he whisks her away before the count changes his mind. Nolan doesn’t have time for a liaison so he grants her freedom. But she refuses to leave.
Gianna is desperate to escape the count’s clutches and Nolan Gray appears to be the only way out. She can’t lay all her cards on the table, not yet, no matter how much her body quivers with desire. Can Nolan and Gianna put aside their attraction long enough to garner her freedom or will their luck run out?
A fantastic, riveting historical romance! I loved the setting of Venice and it added a layer of seduction to the story. I got swept away in the dance Nolan and Gianna portrayed. The count is a conniving evil man and added depth to the story. Can’t wait to read more from Bronwyn Scott.
