""Don't let yourself be fooled, Madeline: once a rake, always a rake."" -- Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress
When Madeline Prescott took a teaching position at Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies, it was to help restore her father's reputation. Instead, she's in danger of ruining her own. The devilishly handsome Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, has agreed to provide "rake lessons" to Mrs. Harris's pupils so they can learn how to avoid unscrupulous gentlemen, and Madeline is to oversee his classes. She has always believed that attraction is a scientific matter, easily classified and controlled -- until she's swept into the passionate desire that fiercely burns between her and Anthony. Nothing could be more illogical than risking everything for a dalliance with a rake -- even one who's trying to behave himself. Yet nothing could be more tempting....
I've rated this 3 1/2 stars. It had a great romance, the heat between Madeline and Anthony is searing and their mutual respect for each other and their quirks is adorable as well. I felt for Madeline and her families issues and I loved how Anthony and Madeline are connected in more ways then they even knew! The ending was great, and I loved the few twists in the story line. I love being surprised and even a little shocked while reading! All in all it's a great addition to the Heiresses series and if you've read the first 3 you should definitely read this one!
