Saved by a Rake - Book Cover


When Lady Rebecca Eversley is left ravished by the Earl of Newthorpe and facing ruination, she has the choice to point her pretty little nose in the air and face the gossips of the Ton or scurry off to the country to live out her life as an old maid. When she meets Lord Daniel Ramsey, a notorious rake, she decides on the former course of action.

Daniel has been given an ultimatum, marry before his father dies or lose the majority of his inheritance money. Rebecca seems the perfect candidate, especially once rumours about her start to circulate in the drawing rooms of Mayfair.

When Newthorpe is found dead on the morning of their wedding, the people they care about find themselves suspects in the case. Who murdered Newthorpe and can Rebecca ever get over what he did to her?



Em was born and brought up in the Central Belt of Scotland and still lives there. She was told as a child she had an over active imagination—as if that is a bad thing. She’s traded her dreams of owning her own island, just like George in the Famous Five to hoping to meet her own Mr Darcy one day. But her imagination remains the same.

Unfortunately, Em was put off reading and writing by school and although she rediscovered her love of reading many years ago, she only tried her hand at writing again in 2011. After a year of writing fan fiction, she wrote an original short story for an anthology. This was followed up with two more shorts and 4 novella length books, all published under a pen name. Having fallen in love with a new sub-genre, courtesy of books by Mary Balogh and Lynsay Sands, she decided to try her hand at her new favourite genre for reading—regency.

Having bitten the bullet, she feels she has found her home in the 19th century, and it does give her an excuse to watch Colin Firth in a pair of buff breeches and riding books ad infinitum.

Amazeballs Book Addicts Review:
First, I want to say I really love historical romances. A lot of the time, a historical can be cheesy and unrealistic for us in the modern day. However, this book was not one of them. I was pleasantly surprised to find this book both very easy to relate to, but true to the time period. It was both sweet and romantic but still very interesting. I love how the author wrote each character to be again very true to the "historical" time but still made the issues they deal with something that still happens in today's time. I love how protective, loving, and patient but still sexy out of control Daniel is with Rebecca. And how innocent yet wanton Rebecca is with Daniel. Those two are literally a match made in heaven. I really hope there are more historical romances to come from this author!! I would definitely recommend this book to other historical fans like myself. I give this book 4 AMAZEBALLS Stars!!! An ARC was given by the author in exchange for an honest review. Review by Tabitha
