*Previously titled Instant Sensation*
Book 2 in the “Valencourt”series, but can be read as a stand alone. A new author to me. A turn of the 20th century Paris and New York tale and what a tale. Witty dialog, intrigue, passion, the Cabaret, the lower classes, the upper classes who love to indulge, trust, betrayal, secrets, finding love and romance, makes this an intriguing tale. A unique tale with many facets of life, people and love.
The heroine was very unsure of herself, in the beginning but by the end of the story had found her place. The hero had been terribly wronged in the past which led him down a different path in life.
The cast of characters are realistic, believable, endearing and engaging. There are more than one villains in this tale, which is unique in itself.
You will smile, frown and cry as you learn the details of the past of these intriguing characters. Oh, then there are the times you want to kick butt as well. Intriguing and intriguing. I hope fans of Ms. Greenfield learn more on some of the characters including the villains in later stories. The ending was a but abrupt, ending very quickly, but still gave the reader a satisfying ending. Fans of 20th century history, the Cabaret, Paris, and New York will enjoy “Rescued by the Rake”. Well done! A satisfying and enjoyable read!
