Amanda Twyford, confronted unexpectedly with the unwelcome news of her elder sister Isabella's engagement to notorious rake Charles Barsett, is determined to put a stop to the impending nuptials.

Amanda immediately takes a dislike to cold, haughty Charles, and she is sure Isabella's heart lies with another...

As she meddles more in their affairs, Amanda discovers that dark rumours surround Charles' reputation. And they all seem to be connected to the secretive Medmenham Abbey.

But as Amanda becomes more involved in protecting her sister's heart, does she risk losing control over her own... ?

What is really going on at the mysterious Abbey? And what connection has Charles Barsett with that centre of ill-repute?

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction...



THE GEORGIAN RAKE is a thrilling adventure story by Alice Chetwynd Ley: a traditional British, pre Regency romance novel with a twist of suspense and mystery, set in Georgian England.

'Ley tosses in little hints and glimpses of what is really going on in her characters' heads rather than let every thing wait until the end when it blows in out of the blue. This one is a Georgian era which is one of my favorites.' - Dear Author

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! I really loved this book and can definitely recommend it! - Cup of Tea and Book Blog
