    6. Received this book for an honest review.If you are a true lover of Victorian historical romances then you will probably be disappointed in this book. If you just enjoy a love story I like a little adversity in your story then you'll love this book.The the characters of fairly likeable they're not overly complex nor or are they as simple either.As this book is about maybe a hundred pages I don't really want to give you too much about the story so that you'll be able to enjoy your reading.

    9. DisappointedI bought Once Upon a Rake. But instead of a romance, there were a bunch of "free" short stories first. When I click on the link to get to Once Upon A Rake, it takes me to the end of the book (93%). If I would have wanted a collection of short stories, I would have searched and bought them. Maybe someone can tell me how the Rake is. I never found him.

    10. Really liked it. Kept my attention. Goes to show money isn't everything when it comes to love. Amazing she saw through one of them right away and everyone was clouded up by his money. I recommend it. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    11. This book was a quick read. The characters were complex and easily to like or dislike. I enjoyed the story because no matter what you must stay true to your heart. If you love the Victorian era then you will enjoy this book.

    12. It was a great read, fast story. You fall into the lifestyle of the story and no matter how it turns out you are glad it ended the way it did. Easy to follow along from start to finish.
