What to expect

’One of my favorite authors. Her books are pure romantic delight’ Tessa Dare on My Fake Rake

Living their best life

Beatrice Sloane, the Countess of Farris, is a free-spirited widow. After a stultifying marriage, she is now wealthy and independent and determined to stay so. Wherever she goes, a good time is sure to follow!

Captain Duncan McCameron struggles to find a purpose for himself now that the war is over. Discovering his sweetheart had married another whilst he was at war means he’s kept himself closed off from love.

Entrusted to escort Lady Farris to her friend’s estate, these two opposites start on a journey that ultimately involves carriage crashes, secret barn dances, robbers, and an inn with only one bed! But as tensions dissolve into passion, can there be a future for an adventure-loving lady and a duty-bound soldier, or will their differences tear them apart?

Critics Review


    ‘Charming, witty, and thoroughly adorable!’ Tessa Dare

    ‘My Fake Rake is a feast of female empowerment, positive friendships, feel-good moments, and social satire. And as the first book in a series, it builds a delicious world you’ll want to come back to — hopefully because the delightful supporting characters will get their own stories next.’

    ‘divinely charming… Leigh expertly crafts their growing affection that blooms into love, tiptoeing to the edge of their realization of their potential for perfect happiness and drawing them back from it with an adroitly paced push-and-pull… The makeover trope is one of the more tired and problematic of the rom-com genre, but Leigh ingeniously turns it on its head, swapping the genders and making Sebastian’s transformation more about social commentary than anything else… our love for these two romantic dunces and their satirical, slow-burn, sexy ruse is nothing but genuine.’

    ‘This book is so good! Dorks + rake makeover + kissing = DELICIOUSNESS. Run to read it!!’ Joanna Shupe

    ‘This superbly entertaining, perfectly executed Regency-set love story is not only dazzlingly witty and intensely sexy; it is also a sweetly crafted love letter about the power of learning, literature, and lifelong friendships.’

    ‘charming… Readers will delight in this heartfelt, swoon-worthy tale.’
