About

Overview

The Union of the Rakes

Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to “build” the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace’s colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires. Sebastian agrees to let Grace transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing — albeit fake — rake. But Grace’s feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn’t asked him to help her marry someone else.

Customer Reviews

“. . . charming . . . The plot is as well developed as the lovers’ growing feelings. Readers will delight in this heartfelt, swoon-worthy tale.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“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.”

— Booklist (starred)

“In this first book of her new “Union of the Rakes” series, Leigh adopts the fake dating trope to the Regency Era in a wildly fun and entertaining way, introducing characters who are sure to delight fans of this beloved genre.”

— Library Journal

“Grace and Seb are delightful together, and Seb is a breath of non-alpha-hero fresh air . . . satisfying for readers of Courtney Milan and Tessa Dare. A sweet faux suitor romance between two scientist friends who find a new passion in one another.”
