A RAKE LIKE YOU BY BECKY MICHAELS
Publication Date: August 31, 2021
Series: Linfield Hall, Book #2
Genre: Historical Romance/Regency
About to turn thirty, Charles Finch finally realizes his luck has run out. He’s twenty thousand pounds in debt, his entire family hates him, and the powerful Duke of Rutley is watching his every move. So Charles sets out to do what any handsome but impoverished earl would: find a young lady with an impressive dowry to marry him and replenish his coffers.
Louisa Strickland much prefers managing the successful estate her father left her to the company of society. But now that her younger sister has come of age, Louisa finds herself in Mayfair, forced to protect her family from desperate fortune hunters like her neighbor, Charles Finch. And when Charles sets his sights on Louisa’s sister, Louisa will do anything to avert his attention elsewhere.
As Charles and Louisa find themselves rekindling an old friendship that once went up in flames, Charles begins to wonder if there could be something more between them. He only needs to prove he’s not the man he once was. But unfortunately for Charles, it will take much more than passionate kisses and giving up brandy to convince independent Louisa to marry a rake like him.

A Rake Like You by Becky Michaels Is the second installment in the Linfield Hall series, following Lady August.
Independent and cynical, red haired, bluestocking, Louisa Strickland, was everything I hoped she would be. Strong willed and determined, she is an outstanding character in this new standalone regency romance by Michaels.
Louisa Strickland has resigned herself to a life of spinsterhood, sacrificing
marriage for her independence. She wants nothing more than living in the country and maintaining the estate her unconditional father left her. Or so she thinks….
Longtime neighbors Miss Louisa an Charles Finch disguise themselves as a couple. Louisa became enamored of him.. maybe she came very close to thinking marriage wasn’t so bad. When she walked in on her pretend love interest with an opera singer. She made sure never to let her heart get in the way of what she truly desired. But
that was years ago, now Louisa’s younger sister Flora is coming out. Flora’s beauty and her weighted dowry makes her the ideal catch of the Season.
Viscount Charles Finch, Earl of Bolton, a rake of the first degree. His hardcore drinking, womanizing and extensive gambling has made him the perfect retch for redemption. After coming to turns with his addiction to drink, giving up the vile stuff.
His problems are not even close to being over with. He is over his head in debt, actually the correct number is twenty thousand pounds. The powerful Duke of Rutley has made it his personal agenda to make sure that Charles follows through on their agreement. His family life has suffered greatly from his pure lake of compassion and his self centered treatment towards them.
The Impoverished Earl of Bolton, Charles Finch, has no alternative but to marry a woman with a large dowry to reestablish his estates coffers.
A Reluctant Romance….
The author has created an engaging and memorable heroine, and her highly accomplished writing ensures that the reader is swept along in this lovely regency romance. I enjoyed the twists along with the slow building romantic tension the author so expertly written. The banter and comic timing made for a delightful book that I found very enjoyable
I like many other readers are pleasantly looking forward to reading what this author comes up next.
