    One thought on “The Ruin of a Rake”

    1. This author has quickly moved to the top of my Must Read list While I didn t love The Ruin of a Rake quite as much as The Lawrence Browne Affair, I still fully enjoyed this quirky historical romance about a reluctant scoundrel and a proper gentleman who won t sully his name by association.Courtenay was not a likeable character in the second book, but the instant I read his POV, I forgave him fully He was a kinder man, a less selfish man, than Julian, who lived behind a carefully constructed faca [...]

    2. I ve been reading romance for a long, long time And I can easily say this is one of the best historical romance novels I ve ever read It s in my top books of 2017 and maybe of all TIME Every single thing about this book worked for me, delighted me, and made me want to re read it immediately Review closer to release date, but this book is just amazing

    3. I m wondering how she ll do thisCourtney s story she has chosen a tough one.The above is what I wrote after reading the second book whilst I was waiting for this one Well she did it by writing layers and chemistry and warmth and love Sebastian makes it looks so easy, writing layers after layers giving us a deep look into her characters whilst keeping the story moving and me wanting .Plus making me smile because of her channeling of Phoebe Marlowe, Sylvester being one of my all time favourites.

    4. October 31, 2017 0.99 sale alert Medlock looks both mortified and furious Evidently even allusions to feline fornication were enough to discompose him Courtenay would keep that in mind.Sebastian s books should come with a warning Something like this book will make you excessively highlight will have you grinning idiotically will leave you hugging your kindle will ruin you for most other historical romances, queer or otherwise All around this author is highly recommended and each book in this ser [...]

    5. 4.5 starsAh, I enjoyed this one immensely I would say I enjoyed this book even than The Lawrence Browne Affair if not for Julian, who for the majority of this novel was so damn frustrating But I do think Julian and Courtenay had chemistry in this book, passion, and they were cute together when Julian wasn t being a douche I mean, you get to understand why Julian acts the way he does, and why he s so determined to seem like a gentleman and I get that some of his asshole ishness at times is jus [...]

    6. There was nothing safe about Courtenay, not when Julian s desire for him was so drastically out of proportion to what he was used to Julian Medlock is a paragon of respectability He s spent years cultivating his proper and correct persona, ensuring that he s respected by everyone of the ton But when Julian s sister asks him for a favor, he s unable to refuse even though he really wants to Because revamping the image of the shameless rake, Lord Courtenay, the man he despises but also fiercely des [...]

    7. 4.5 starsWow, Cat Sebastian is fast becoming one of my favourite historical m m authors Her books are all consistently good Interesting and unique characters, good twists on the typical recency plots and lots of emotion.

    8. Historical romances are one of my all time favourites and I can t get enough of Cat Sebastian s world of post Regency England shortly after the time of Waterloo.In this one we have a brilliant frenemies to lovers tale which links back to the earlier two books through the Mad Earl and his recently returned from exile young son and his reprobate uncle.Enlisting the help of one of the Ton s most proper gentlemen to help rehabilitate the rake, this story skirts through all the typical activities of [...]

    9. 3.5 starsHonestly, I had no idea who Lord Courtenay and Julian Medlock were I guess their existence or mentions about them sort of passed me by when I read The Lawrence Browne Affair I don t know whether my lack of intrigue about these two has any influence whatsoever because I didn t love this as much as I love the previous two books.I did found Julian Medlock amusing Julian is described as very smart in numbers and sums, but rude, cold, and rather scheming in a sense that he makes plans severa [...]

    10. I ve given this an A at AAR, so that s 4.5 starsCat Sebastian completes a hat trick with her latest Regency romance, making a total of three winners in a row Like her previous books, The Soldier s Scoundrel and The Lawrence Browne Affair, The Ruin of a Rake is hugely entertaining witty, sexy and poignant it s the story of a rake in the process of reforming and the starchy, acerbic man given the task of helping him The trope rogue with a heart of gold meets the uber proper gentleman plays out to [...]

    11. 3.5 stars Last round of the Turner series Can be read as a standalone, but the previous MCs make appearance and their stories are too good to pass.In The Lawrence Browne Affair, we met with Radnor who reunited with his son, Simon Simon spent his childhood overseas with his mother, recently dead, and was brought back to England by his uncle, the infamous Lord Courtenay Courtenay s ill reputation banned him from seeing Simon and one of his newest friend, Eleanor, can see how deeply affected he is [...]

    12. There is a lot to like about this historical romance between a well known rake and a plain man who has plotted, clawed, and calculated respectability into everything he does I really enjoyed Julian, in his fussy, driven, flustered desire to make himself and his sister a solid place in society, one safe from any hints of their commercial past, or the vagaries of their childhood in the East Julian had his plans laid out, his goals arrayed And his pain at finding them overset both by his sister s g [...]

    13. I ve been following this series since Book 1 and I ve just realized there isn t a series name and was market as standalone Anyway, I m sorry to say that this is my least favorite among the three books, although I enjoy the story of Courtenay and Julian Medlock enough to root for both of them I had such high hope for the despicable and adventurous Courtenay, but he seems rather sedate in the story First quarter of the book was uneventful with Julian trying to help Courtenay be less an outcast fro [...]

    14. Release Date July 4, 2017 Genre MM Historical RomanceWhen I saw that this was releasing I was really excited Why Because it is not often that one can find a historical M M romance novel I mean, that type of romance is extremely taboo and forbidden during this time frame and I would have feared that if they were found out about that it would mean a near death to both of them Sadly, I didn t feel any of this while reading, which is why I gave it a 2 stars not my cup of tea For the time period in w [...]

    15. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorite historical romance series It s full of quirky, delightful characters not perfect people, but the sort you see around you in your daily life This was one of those books where, as I read along, I would highlight passages that reminded me of people I knew, and there were loads of them It is so refreshing to read a historical romance where the characters feel so much like your friends and loved ones With Cat Sebastian s stories, you aren t peering t [...]

    16. Missing you is profoundly inconvenient, I ll have you know I have things to do and places to be, and all the while I ll feel like I ve mislaid a piece of my soul and I won t get it back until I see you again Sigh Swoon I sang Cat Sebastian s praises in my review for The Lawrence Browne Affair, and I ll happily belt the same tune here Compelling and well crafted, chock full of engaging banter, humor, and tender passion.I m particularly partial to okay, obsessed with pairings that feature a charis [...]

    17. Bloody Brilliant Loved every single minute of this.Cat Sebastian, where have you been all my life I fall in love with your writing and with each book I seriously would like you to lock yourself up and just churn out historical romances You are fantabulous I seriously want to swoony sigh all over the place Courtenay and Julian gave me so much feelz Along with the feelz, and steamy goodness you gave an amazing plot as well So different then the other two, but amazingly good as well as the other [...]

    18. 5 StarsMy absolute favorite of the series Cat Sebastian is quickly becoming my go to author for Historical reads

    19. This book is different from the other two, it s less the scoundrel and his redeemer, or beauty and the beast and subtle than that Courtenay is everything that not only Julian is attracted to but also secretly wants to be Not because he wants to have his lovelife, but he simply wants to be as confident in every situation In reality, Courtenay doesn t even have his own lovelife, nothing is as crazy as it actually is rud to be but it s simply what everyone believes The true beauty of the book is t [...]

    20. this was fantastic although i could pretty much predict where the story was going after The Great First Plot Twist, sebastian s writing was so good that i could still thoroughly enjoy it the characters were absolutely excellent multilayered and complex and flawed, which made for some very compelling reading m m regency romance is becoming one of my favourite genres and i would like to read everything please and thank you

    21. The Ruin of a RakeBy Cat SebastianAvon Impulse, 2017Five starsI find all contemporary regency novels suspect As a teenager I read a lot of Georgette Heyer, so I know what a good historical regency romance should be But I ve also read all of Jane Austen, and I read Thackeray s Vanity Fair twice, so I know what a period novel about regency England should be like The very genre is so fraught with pitfalls Add a gay love story into that, and it just seems to be a disaster waiting to happen But no I [...]

    22. The Ruin of a Rake is actually the first book from Cat Sebastian that I ve ever read, and after reading this one I am going to have to go back and read the first two books I ended up really enjoying this one I have a habit of avoiding historical romances because I am worried that I will get bored, that sounds really awful but it s just not my thing normally but this one kept me engaged the entire time I ended up reading this one in one sitting I couldn t get enough of these two The two MCs in th [...]

    23. A nice change of pace into the historical world enjoyed these characters and the steps they had to take to meet the expectations of society Good lord there was nothing fast paced about it and patience is certainly something that would have been high on anyone s list back in those days The romance was sweet and quite funny as Julien slowly understood what love felt like If you enjoy historical mm, this is a lovely read

    24. I m so into this author right now, and I m so upset she has only published three books so far I want her next book right frickin now Out in two weeks, already pre ordered This is the last book in the Turner series, and it s just as good as the first two We met our heroes last book Julian Medlock is the brother of Eleanor Standish, Lawrence s science friend, and Lord Courtenay his son s uncle Courtenay is the titular rake, an infamous scapegrace who has spent his entire adult life indulging in wh [...]

    25. Ahh I loved this saga I m so sad I finished it I m sure I ll re read it again and follow this author o check of her works In this book we can see as Main characters two of characters that appear at the end of book 2 They are forced to work together in cleaning the image of one of them, which his acts has taken a toll losting one of the most valued things in his life, his nephew.So here we have this two, very different men trying to sail in the high society.Maybe these two are my least favorite [...]
