I picked this up while it was free on Amazon and thought it was a fun fast novella. Here are a few quick thoughts on Ruined by a Rake by Erin Knightly.
A quick story of Eleanor and Nicolas who are step-cousins that have been sparring since the day they met. Now all grown up they are back in the same house just as Eleanor’s uncle demands that she marries.
It’s a simple story, but has pretty great characters. I loved Eleanor and Nicolas’ banter. Plus the other characters supported the story well without getting too involved since it is a short story.
It was a sweet fast read. I would certainly give any other novellas by Knightly a look in the future. I give it four out of five stars.
