The Rake’s Handbook Series
One small book can lead to so much trouble . . .
When three friends write and publish The Rake’s Handbook, Including Field Guide on a lark, they never realized all of London would be in a twitter. Gentlemen are publicly amused, but privately jealous, while the ladies are publicly censorious, but privately intrigued. One year after the publication, the three men are surprised that one light-hearted tome could plunge their lives into such serious havoc.
The Rake's Handbook Series:
1. The Rake's Handbook, Including Field Guide
2. When a Rake Falls
3. To Catch a Rake
Book One: THE RAKE'S HANDBOOK: INCLUDING FIELD GUIDE
The definitive guide to seduction…
The Rake’s Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies—who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook—but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross’s notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.
Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross’s country estate. She’s appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industrial plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross’s seductive ways. But he keeps coming around…impressing her with his vision for England’s future and stunning her with his smiles.
How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?
Book Two: When a Rake Falls
He’s racing to win back his reputation
Having hired a balloon to get him to Paris in a daring race, Lord Boyce Parker is simultaneously exhilarated and unnerved by the wonders and dangers of flight, and most of all by the beautiful, stubborn, intelligent lady operating the balloon.
She’s curious about the science of love
Eve Mountfloy is in the process of conducting weather experiments when she finds herself spirited away to France by a notorious rake. She’s only slightly dismayed—the rake seems to respect her work—but she is frequently distracted by his windblown physical magnificence and buoyant spirits.
As risky as aeronautics may be, once their feet touch the ground, Eve and Boyce learn the real danger of a very different type of falling…
"Orr returns with another romance full of love and laughter. The madcap adventures combined with a sweet love story will charm readers – and there are plenty of historical and scientific facts mixed in to add to the appeal. Orr also explores the universal need for acceptance, turning this romp into a meaningful and emotional read." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

The well-crafted characters perfectly merge with the historical events, hooking fans from page one until the conclusion. This intelligent, delectable read is sure to satisfy."
