ANNE STUART THE SPINSTER AND THE RAKE PDF

Ive been keen to read it ever since I became aware of its existence I mean who doesnt love a good rake-meets-spinster story? I cant say what the revisions are as I havent read the original, but I am guessing Ms. At nearly thirty, Gillian — … had long since decided, with a great deal of persuasion from the aforementioned siblings, to immolate herself on the altar of duty, having a great deal of family reeling and a dislike of being useless. One of the gentlemen, Vivian Peacock, is more than a little the worse for wear, while his companion, Lord Marlowe is quite the most sinfully attractive man Gillian has ever met. No prizes for guessing where this is going, but Ms. Oh, Marlowe.

At nearly thirty, Gillian — … had long since decided, with a great deal of persuasion from the aforementioned siblings, to immolate herself on the altar of duty, having a great deal of family reeling and a dislike of being useless.

One of the gentlemen, Vivian Peacock, is more than a little the worse for wear, while his companion, Lord Marlowe is quite the most sinfully attractive man Gillian has ever met. No prizes for guessing where this is going, but Ms. Oh, Marlowe. Very much a man of the world and yet so clueless. Both characters are engaging and very likeable.

Marlowe has returned to England older and much wiser and I liked his practical, no-nonsense outlook. And even though Gillian has somehow fallen into the role of general factotum for her brother and indolent sister-in-law, she is far from a downtrodden poor relation. She has money of her own, a lively sense of the ridiculous and her grown-up niece and nephew, both of whom have important secondary roles to play in the story, obviously adore her for her lively wit and common sense.

It does all resolve fairly easily, of course, as it happens quite near the end of the book, but by then I was so invested in Marlowe and his Gillyflower making a go of it that I was more than happy to just go with the flow. The Spinster and the Rake is a quick, entertaining read that very skilfully treads a well-worn path.
