I highly recommend this read. Earl Drake has a group of men, spies, he calls Drake’s Rakes, but again, nothing barelu really said about it, even though it’s the name of the series.
Barely a Lady (Drake’s Rakes, book 1) by Eileen Dreyer
Then there was the whole mystery of where had Jack been for the last 5 years, only it was never really discussed either. He assumed the worst, they were divorced, whoever he wants to sleep with in the meantime, whatever. Jack never really seems like his own person, Olivia forgets all her troubles once she sees Jack, the author started out with an interesting premise but had too much other stuff going on to do it justice, I just couldn’t get into this.
Apparently they hadn’t been married for long when this all happened. This is more of a storyline driven book to me. To keep him from being hanged for a traitor, Olivia must pretend she and Jack are still married. It was not an irredeemable character flaw, but rather, a lack of maturity and therefore, forgivable with the right blend of atonement.
I am sad to say that we have very different tastes. Full review to come. New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Eileen Dreyer, known as Kathleen Korbel to her Silhouette readers, has published 28 romance novels, 8 medico-forensic suspenses, and 7 short stories.
Jack believed his family- xreyer ones whom were suppose to love him. Jack wakes up with amnesia, still thinking they’re married, and poor Olivia has to pretend that she still his wife. The main issue I had with Barely A Lady had to do with the storyline.
I never got a good i Kudos to this book for trying to have a plot. Feb 17, Libby rated dreydr did not like it Shelves: Oh hell no he didn’t. After this, I couldn’t get excited. Open Preview See a Problem?
Lady Bea’s condition is wacky, strange and again, completely unrealistic, but I did love it.
I would have left Jack on the battlefield to rot. This review is not spoiler free. I succumbed and read it. Nov 02, Lindsay rated it really liked it Shelves: Me, if I’d found the bum wounded wearing an enemy uniform it would have taken me about 2 seconds to decide to find the guards and then do a jig as his ass was dragged to prison and hopefully the end wileen a short rope.
Barely a Lady
The book begins five years later during the Waterloo battle in Belgium. Jack is still missing memory, so there is mystery about why two bad guys want to harm him. Despite the fact that Jack betrayed her without blinking, Liv refuses to believe he would betray his country.
The expert writing made it an easy if predictable read all the way through. In these times, a divorced woman is shunned from polite society and is converted to being a persona non grata. Otherwise, I would give it a miss. No ladu what the reasons To save themselves and the friends who have given them sanctuary, they must stand against their enemies, even as they both keep their secrets.
Most of the sex scenes were remembering a sex scene, dreaming of sex, or starting a sex scene but stopping or being interrupted. As one of the great secondary characters says, the H “failed at his first fence”. After all the hero did to her, I don’t understand how eilen could have even fathomed forgiving him as quickly and easily as she did. I absolutely hated Jack’s reaction when he got his memory back, but he totally made up for it.
Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. And if that wasn’t a big enough insult, he found love easily enough with someone else during the years he was away from the heroine.

All said and done, I don’t think his biggest and most unforgivable sin lies in believing his treacherous cousin and family, or in throwing out his pregnant wife, or disclaiming his child, or loving another woman and thinking his time with her was better than what he had with his wife that bit was never quite sorted out satisfactorily despite his reinstated fervency! This book had some of the biggest emotional moments in it, not the tears but of the what ifs?
On top of this, he’s constantly angry with Olivia and he has lingering feelings of doubt about her from their past. View all 3 comments. You would be alone and have no one to call dreuer help.
