The Ruin of a Rake (2017) Cat Sebastian (The Turner Series)

The Ruin of a RakeSet in England in 1817

Courtenay has been ruined. He was already not accepted in polite society, but now he has fallen so far he has been denied access to his nephew–the one person in the world he loves unreservedly.

Julian has more good reputation than he knows what to do with, so his sister insists he loan some to Courtenay.

He had spent years acquiring the shine of gentility that one usually had to be born with. But the truth was that he had helped himself to other people’s respectability— he had finagled invitations and then gradually insinuated himself into higher and higher social circles. He had borrowed and stolen and finally hoarded up respectability until now he had more than he knew what to do with.

And despite how he appeared in the previous book in this series (which you do not have to read to enjoy this) Courtenay is actually quite lovely.

It had something to do with how, when he turned his sea-green eyes on you and paid attention to what you were saying, you felt like you were at the center of the universe. He seemed to genuinely like each person he spoke with.

Rating: 7.5/10
