Review: Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake

Available Now: Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sara MacLean

***3.5/5 stars- liked to the edge of love- call it a stage I crush

Next in rhyming romance, a near-spinster takes her future firmly in hand (See also Rogue with Brouge).

Recommended readers:

  • If you like an English rogue,
  • If you’ve ever fancied yourself a reformer of rakes,
  • and if you’re a sucker for an empowered cinderella story, this one is for you.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3.5/5 for characters
  • 3.5/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall
  • Note: 4/5 Steaminess


Lady Calpurnia Hartwell’s lifetime of following the rules has brought her nothing but a fast-approaching spinsterhood and not a bit of fun. When she changes her tune, creating a clever little list of nine things a nice English lady ought not do, she must enlist the help of her old girlhood crush to accomplish her goals. Cheroots, duels, and stolen kisses: just one guess how this one turns out, but it’s lovely diversion, with clever dialogue, and a very funny heroine.
