An earl is forced to play matchmaker for the daughters of a rake in a smart and witty new Regency romance from the national bestselling author of The Scoundrel's Daughter.

Recently returned to England, Leo, the new Earl of Salcott, discovers he's been thrust into the role of guardian to an heiress, the daughter of a notorious rake. Even worse, his wealthy ward has brought her half-sister, the beautiful but penniless Isobel, with her. Leo must find Clarissa a suitable husband, but her illegitimate half sister, Izzy, is quite another matter. Her lowly birth makes her quite unacceptable in London's aristocratic circles.

However, the girls are devoted to each other and despite the risk of scandal if Izzy's parentage is discovered, they refuse to be separated. To Leo's frustration, nothing will convince them otherwise. Even worse, sparks fly every time Leo and Izzy interact.

Called away to his country estate, Leo instructs the young ladies to stay quietly at home. But when he returns, he's infuriated to discover that Izzy and Clarissa have launched themselves into society -- with tremendous success! There's no going back. Now Leo must enter society to protect Clarissa from fortune hunters, and try not to be driven mad by the sharp-witted, rebellious, and intoxicating Izzy.

An engaging plot and a good enemies to lover romance that came to a nice ending. ~ Amanda – Simply Love Books

 

Full of wit, humor and love, The Rake’s Daughter by Anne Gracie is a perfect feel good romance that has you wanting more. The story is about two half-sisters that are the responsibility of Leo, Lord Salcott, and he must find a husband for the legitimate daughter Clarissa Studley, and do something with the illegitimate one, Isobel. The two girls are totally devoted to one another and plan to come out to London Society together or else! When Leo is called out of town to take care of estate business, the girls plan to play while the cat’s away. He returns to find them successfully launched into Society and has to finagle things to keep Isobel’s reputation from harming Clarissa’s chances of marriage.

This story was a delightful and entertaining story. The author created a strong bond between the sisters and your heart felt for both these girls and their lonely childhood. Leo was a little harder to understand but he also had a tough childhood and lacked experience to fully understand his position and the bond the two women had for one another. The romance was a slow build and took a little time for Leo to understand his feelings and how his actions have mixed reactions. I thought it was an engaging plot and a good enemies to lover romance that came to a nice ending. It can be read as a stand-alone as this is the second one in the series. Can’t wait for Clarissa’s story and the nosy neighbor Millie
