Ruined by a Rake Erin Knightley read online review & book description:

It started with a kiss.

When nine-year-old Eleanor Abbington first met her uncle’s new stepson, Nicolas Norton, the boy rudely stole a kiss from her that set the tone for their contentious and competitive relationship. It wasn’t until years later when Nick introduced her to fencing that they finally had a proper outlet for their frequent arguments.

Having just emerged from mourning following her mother’s death, Eleanor is exactly where she wishes to be at the age of four-and-twenty: an on-the-shelf spinster and unofficial companion to her aunt. Unfortunately, her ambitious uncle has other plans for her future. On the eve of his house party, he lays down his ultimatum: either Eleanor marries the man of his choosing, or he'll force her seventeen-year-old sister to do so instead.

When Nick unexpectedly arrives on their doorstep after a two year absence, Eleanor is in no mood for their normal banter. Seeming to know exactly what she needs, Nick challenges her to pick up the foil once more. During their pre-dawn matches, he shows her just how strong she can be . . . and exactly how much he’s changed since leaving. But when her old adversary becomes her only ally, she may very well find herself . . . Ruined by a Rake.

**This is a novella of approximately 23,000 words**

  • Good but Unfinished Ending

    The story started out well, but it ended abruptly. It needed at least a few more chapters to feel like a real book. Very unsatisfied with the ending, but I liked the premise of the story as a whole
  • Pretty good

    Loved the story line, but i thought it ended a bit abruptly. Needs a bit more fluff to ease the reader into the last scene. Other than that, the only thing that bothered me was the names, wellington, shevington, kensington, abbington, landon, norton.

    I enjoyed this novella. Usually with the shorter stories character development suffers and the story seems rushed. I was pleasantly surprised this was not the case. Well written and plot moves along at a nice pace.
  • Loved it!
