While cute, I did not find this book to be as amusing as it sounded. The premise is that Meredith Merriweather is so hurt from being left at the alter by a rake that she is writing a guidebook about rakes by performing research on them. While this would hint that a good portion of the book would involve funny encounters as she did research with the hero of the book, that rarely happened.

Witty, sharp-tongued heroine pens a "cautionery" guide for other women on how to avoid the aristocratic bad boys. She runs into trouble with interferring aunts and a perfect match.

Entertaining and a enjoyable read. I love it when the hero goes after what he wants. Even when the woman is being single minded and stubborn.

ONCE A RAKE, ALWAYS A RAKE!
Gentle Reader, always remember that and pray that I, Meredith Merriweather, heed my own warning. For I find myself caught in a scheme to prove that the notorious former scoundrel Lord Lansing, Alexander Lamont, is just as wicked as he always has been. To complete my cautionary guidebook, which will save young ladies from suffering at the hands of cads, I am dangling my very self at bait!
Now the insufferable rogue believes that I am the woman for him. Even more scandalous, my great-aunts-the matchmaking Featherton sisters-are aiding his outrageous pursuit instead of encouraging the respectable gentleman I am determined to marry. I admit that Alexanders charming simile and laughing eyes are most intriguing. But good heavens, must I always be tempted to give my heart to the type of man no proper woman should trust, let alone love?

I keep asking myself why these authors keep writing the same thing over and over in their books. I understand repeating something but it starts to get old page after page. This story was well written and had excellent characters but the leading lady for being a smart gel was a whiner. I liked the reforming of the rake and the challenges that were put in his way. Other than the same line over and over the story moved at a great pace, lots of little twists and the elderly aunts were great!
