Led Astray By A Rake - Sara Bennett

Wow!  I did not put this book down until I was done.  There is one HUGE plot twist that I thought I had figured out, but I was totally wrong!

Miss Olivia Monteith has just completed Miss Debenham's Finishing School.  She is part of the "Husband Hunters Club".  Each girl in the Club believes that the only husband worth having is one she has hunted herself.  Olivia announces in the last meeting that she is going to marry Lord Dominic (Wicked Nic) Lacey.  Olivia has known Wicked Nic all of her life.  He had told her that he would marry her years ago.  After leading Wicked Nic on a merry chase, Olivia finally gets the man she fell in love with years ago, not the brooding man he has turned into.  During the chase, Olivia's mother wants her to marry one of the local landed gentry, a Mr. Garsed.  That brings some suspense with Mr. Garsed's crazy brother. 

There are some fantastic supporting characters in this novel.  Nic's manservant, Abbot is in love with Olivia's maid Estelle.  Then there is the issue with Olivia's sister, Sarah. 

I found this book thoroughly enjoyable and am looking forward to reading the others in The Husband Hunter's Club series.

Five out of Five stars!
