Synopsis

Can he fool his new family?
John Fitzhugh Barrett, surprised to learn he is heir to a marquessate, is determined his new status won't mean giving up his freedom. But as families from all over England descend upon Somerfield Park for the shooting season, their unmarried daughters are lining up to bag the newest trophy buck-him.

Or is he only fooling himself?
John's instinct for self-preservation inspires him to divide his attentions between a scandalous young widow, and the safely ineligible Rebecca Kearsey, daughter of a destitute baron.

The charade gives John the illusion of controlling the game but when he loses his heart to the beautiful Rebecca, all bets are off.

Praise for A Rake by Any Other Name:
"Marlowe shines with a delightful and delicious comedy of errors...Regency fans will love this page-turner." -RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

Reviewed by Caz Owens on Jun 19 2015

Never Resist a Rake - which, by the way is another of those titles that bears no relation whatsoever to the story – is one of those middling books that is neither all bad nor good. The writing flows well and is easy to read, but the characterisation is weak, the romance is poorly developed and the central couple lacks chemistry.
