Review: The Passionate Love of a Rake by Jane Lark


Kindle Edition, 342 pages
Published November 7th 2013 by HarperImpulse

The only woman who had power over notorious rake Robert Marlow was now walking away from him, again.

He'd heard Sutton had died, and known Jane was free, but he'd always thought his desire would only be for revenge, not her. Yet here he was, unable to deny what he felt for her…what he’d never felt for any other woman before…

a love lost...a love found....Robert and Jane's story does not disappoint. If you read the first in Jane Larks series, The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, you know that this writer knows her stuff! She pulls you into the story in the first few paragraphs and does not let you go! Again I give Jane Lark a 5 star cause it is well deserved!! I love reading historical romances and am glad when you find authors that can actually write them well. As for Robert and Jane, well there is no lack of sparks between these two. And you also have a back story for them as well from when they were young. Again, you can't tell too much or you have given the story them both...they're great!!

 Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult Romance, and a Kindle top 25 bestselling author.

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write.

Now Jane is writing a Regency series and contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others' imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane's favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was 'Katherine' a story crafted from reality.

Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses them to create more realistic plots.

'Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it's wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.'

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.
