Only Rakes Would Dare by Charlie Lane


Only Rakes Would Dare is an entertaining, eye-catching, opposites attract romance.  Griffin and Edith are as different as night and day, yet they have the same problem – they need a fiancé quickly!  Griffin reluctantly agrees to Edith’s plan for a fake engagement; he does not expect it to grow into something more profound.

Griffin is determined to drag his sullied family’s reputation up to impeccable.  Edith has been ignored and brushed aside her entire life, and more than anything, she wants to be appreciated.  Edith has made some poor choices. However, she is a kind, intelligent, lovely young lady.  I loved watching the journey of the couple finding a middle ground and an unrelenting passion.

I felt the main characters were in their heads too much at times, and the story thus went in circles at the halfway point.  However, I never lost interest and thoroughly enjoyed this romance.  Only Rakes Would Dare is the fifth book in The Debutante Dares Series.  Charlie Lane has created an elegant, sassy story with unforgettable characters and a wonderful romance.  The storyline is enchanting, and the passionate connection the couple forges is electric.  I encourage you to give this entire series a try!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Wolf publishing.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Release Date: August 25, 2022
