This is only from a few pages: The style so overshadowed the content of the book that I could not find any enjoyment at all: View all 3 comments. Fans of trad regencies.
I enjoyed reading this book. I think the writing style probably wouldn't work for everyone, but it has a trad regency feel that I like in a regency romance. Unfortunately, the title and blurb are a bit misleading.

Trivia About Rebellious Rake, She had determined that she would stay a spinster and devote her life to educating young women. Charlotte has been attracted to Ben since they first met, but she doesn't want to be. I'd recommend it with reservations as expressed above. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations.
The hero, Ben, really isn't that much of a rake. He's illegitimate, and that has affected him so that he doesn't 'spread his seed' liberally. He has affairs, but he is discreet about it and careful to take precautions. Charlotte is a virgin, but she's not as young and naive as the title I enjoyed reading this book.
Charlotte is a virgin, but she's not as young and naive as the title conveys. She's five and twenty, very intelligent, and tough-minded, and she holds her own.
I thought the chemistry between Ben and Charlotte was a big plus in this story. They do a lot of verbal sparring.
Charlotte has been attracted to Ben since they first met, but she doesn't want to be. Ben feels the same way, much to her surprise. She had determined that she would stay a spinster and devote her life to educating young women. She had no desire to marry. And Ben isn't a marrying man anyway.
The last thing she'd do is be any man's mistress. If you're like me and you hate the whole mistress angle, don't worry. Actually, Ben doesn't hold any dishonorable intentions seriously. He actually turns out to be quite honorable. For many reasons, I just didn't see him as a rake, which is a good thing for me. There is a bit of suspense, but it's not the major part of the storyline. However, there were things that occurred in the previous books that were discussed and alluded to that left me in the dark regarding the suspense angle.
Not enough to frustrate me or spoil the read though. There are some passionate kisses and a well-done love scene, and the author shows very clearly that they are both crazy about each other. I believe the author did a good job in keeping this story period. There was enough sexual tension to make this a lively romance, but the characters acted as people of their times in how they conducted themselves very important for this reader.
I think that the narrative relies a bit too heavily on internal dialogue, and less on actual conversation and action, and that would be a negative for some readers.
I would have liked more of both, but overall, I thought this was a good read.
