Thursday, August 05, 2010 Posted by One 2 Try

Summer is fast coming to a close but there is still time for great summer reading. Continuing the "Time to Relax" summer reading theme, here is a new title.

Barely a Lady (The Drake's Rakes series)
by Eileen Dreyer

Book one in the Drake's Rakes Series

Olivia Grace has secrets that could destroy her. One of the greatest of these is the Earl of Gracechurch, who married and divorced her five years earlier. Abandoned and disgraced, Grace has survived those years at the edge of respectability. Then she stumbles over Jack on the battlefield of Waterloo, and he becomes an even more dangerous secret. For not only is he unconscious, he is clad in an enemy uniform.

But worse, when Jack finally wakes in Olivia's care, he can't remember how he came to be on a battlefield in Belgium. In fact, he can remember nothing of the last five years. He thinks he and Olivia are still blissfully together. To keep him from being hanged for a traitor, Olivia must pretend she and Jack are still married.


Get caught up in all the intrigue of Historical Romance. Bring yourself back to a time of turmoil, scandals and pure romance. Barely A Lady takes us to the year 1815 on the fields of battle. Keeping secrets and recovering lost memories, a tale of love and redemption sure to please.
