Denver, Colorado, yesterday. 
Francine Larrabee, a highly respected business woman, is getting ready for a presentation that will change her life when she's in a car accident in the back of a taxi. Suddenly she's a woman with no name and no home in Northern England, near the Scottish border, the year of Our Lord... 1880.
 
Francine is catapulted into a world that threatens her life, controlled by a man who may destroy her heart. Isolated from the world she grew up in, without so much as a glimmer of the world she knows she must survive amid the sudden danger, violence, and passion. 

Francine learns her only chance of safety lies in Gideon Trumbull, a lionhearted--but evasive--duke. What begins as a compulsion to learn anything about him becomes an urgent need, and Francine finds herself in an inescapable new reality, a world in which she doesn't belong.
 

*****


Meanwhile... Gideon's brother Perry has likewise been caught up in an incident, finding a runaway housemaid in his carriage as he's bound for London. His brother is going to kill him if something happens to one of his staff. That something being his rakish brother Perry, of course. 

But his stowaway, Lilly, has another idea. She plans on seducing a rake who refuses to touch her. It seems like just the right challenge to sooth her damaged soul.


*****


Two complete love stories in one beautiful book.

Jenn writes "wildly original" Victorian erotic romance and hangs out at the Ripped Bodice bookstore in California. She loves getting new research books and chatting with fans and other readers. That's really about it.

Review:

Kati at Romancing Rakes:
1 Part Outlander + 1 Part Jane Eyre = Me, Lost in LeBlanc™
Melissa at Sizzling Hot Books:
"The pictures ramp up the sexy and help the reader burn! While historical books are not usually my cup of tea, I found that I couldn't stop reading The Rake and the Recluse. Each page drew me in closer to the characters and made me want to read more! If you like action packed historicals with a twist, The Rake and the Recluse is for you!"

Queen B
"...our hero, Gideon, was delightful. He started off so starched and stuffy and damaged and reserved, but once he gave over to love, he held nothing back. He seemed to love as fearlessly as any warrior fights a battle. His interactions with his little brother were just fabulous to read. I loved them both."

Book Description Illustrated Romance, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Great Britain, 1880A woman out of time. A man stifled by propriety. A nemesis determined to take her away. A brother to the rescue. The Duke of Roxleigh is running the track, training his new set of Friesians, when a woman runs from the forest directly into his path nearly killing her. He takes her back to his manor to care for her. but there's something not quite right and though he wishes to be done with the entire situation, he just can't keep her from his thoughts. Francine Larrabee was a 21st century woman on a path bound for certain glory--until she lands in Victorian England and is nearly killed by a team of terrifying black horses led by a Duke who matches them in spirit and demeanor, and always seems to be cross. Though she is drawn to her rescuer, he wants nothing to do with her. Brother to The Duke of Roxleigh, the Lord Peregrine Trumbull, is Viscount Roxleigh in name, but a rake of the worst order by action. until he meets his match in a girl who requires his complete submission, something he has never been familiar with. Lilly Steele was a simple country miss until she was kidnapped, brutally attacked and left for dead in the far reaches of Great Britain. Now she's escaped the aftermath and has asked Perry to do the untenable. She managed to recover her physical injuries. but the emotional scars run deep and will require absolute trust and healing from an altogether unlikely source. What is love? Where does it come from? What makes two people crash, and two other people burn? In this novel we feel what it means to love, what it means to care, and what it is to give up everything you know--to save the one person you can't live without.
