Publisher's Summary

Madcap tomboy.

When the local magistrate jailed Jacelyn Trevaine's pet dog as a public nuisance, the country miss knew he meant to blackmail her into socializing with his nephew. High-spirited Jacelyn decided to free her dog by kidnapping the precious nephew, but unfortunately she abducted the wrong gentleman! Her captive was none other than handsome Lord Leigh Claibourne - returned war hero and rake extraordinaire. And four hours alone with the libertine Earl was tantamount to social ruin. Of course if she was already ruined, Jacelyn may as well give society something to be scandalized about.

Hardened womanizer.

Claibourne found country life tiresome and dull until he was kidnapped by an irrepressible chit whose candor was utterly disarming. Even rakes have their points of honor, however, and when the situation threatened to compromise Jacelyn, the cynical nobleman was forced to give the appearance of being betrothed to her. Claibourne never gave something for nothing. And in the case of the deliciously appealing Jacelyn, he'd hold her reputation hostage for a rake's ransom.

    "Rake's Ransom"

    Rake's Ransom is one of my all time favorite Barbara Metzger book. I was thrilled to see that it was released on audible. I am hoping that more of Barbara's books will be released on audible.

    I love the job that Stevie Zimmerman did as the narrator. She is amazing. I hope that she narrates all of Barbara Metzger's future audio-books!

    "Pointless"

    Not believable, idiotic story. The heroine is a spoiled brat who needs to grow up. Her antics are childish in the extreme and put me off the whole story.

    Story
    "Fun!"

    Humorous, serious, dramatic, traumatic, silly, outlandish, foolish, frolicking, clean fun.

    With a first class narrator and a lack of any heat this was well worth the time and money!
