Book Review: Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas

Cold-Hearted Rake (The Ravenels #1) by Lisa Kleypas
Genre: Adult Fiction (Historical Romance)
Date Published: October 27, 2015
Publisher: Avon

A twist of fate . . .

Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.

A clash of wills . . .

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known? 

Cold-Hearted Rake  is the first book in The Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas. I grew attached to these characters pretty quickly. Not just Kathleen and Devon, but also Helen, the twins, and especially Devon's brother, West. I really hope he gets his own story in the future. There's just something fun about characters who hate each other. It adds all the more to their chemistry. I don't think Kathleen was trying to be a pain in the butt on purpose. Okay, maybe sometimes she was, but I think she had a lot of guilt and unfinished business, so she was trying to be perfect... and messing up royally at it. It kept Devon on his toes. I enjoyed their story, and after the ending that was like a teaser for the next book, I'm looking forward to Helen's story, because I think there's more to the gruff Mr. Winterborne than what he wanted us to see.
