Review: the Taming of the Rake, by Kasey Michaels

The Taming of a Rake
Author: Kasey Michaels
Historical Romance
Published: HQN Books

Official Blurb:
MEET THE BLACKTHORN BROTHERS—
THREE UNREPENTANT SCOUNDRELS INFAMOUS FOR BEING MAD, BAD AND PERILOUS TO LOVE

Charming, wealthy and wickedly handsome, Oliver “Beau” Blackthorn has it all…except revenge on the enemy he can’t forget. Now the opportunity for retribution has fallen into his hands. But his success hinges on Lady Chelsea Mills-Beckman—the one woman with the power to distract him from his quest.

Desperate to escape her family’s control, Lady Chelsea seizes the chance to run off with the notorious eldest Blackthorn brother, knowing she’s only a pawn in his game. But as Beau draws her deep into a world of intrigue, danger and explosive passion, does she dare hope he’ll choose love over vengeance?

What I thought:
Okay...I don’t like to dwell on the negative so I will get this out of the way first.  I don’t like this book cover.  It does nothing to represent the wonderful characters in the story.  Being a reader who is very cover oriented I just had to put that out there.  However, I’m also very title oriented too and I happen to love The Taming of the Shrew, so this title definitely caught my eye.  (I do like the title font on the cover though! Very pretty!)
