50 Ways to Ruin a Rake (Rakes and Rogues #1) by Jade Lee


Mellie has a plan…

Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country with no suitors and no prospects on the horizon except, perhaps, the exasperating—although admittedly handsome—guest of her father. She's looking for any excuse to go to London to meet more eligible men.

Trevor has a problem…

Trevor Anaedsley's grandfather has cut off his funds until such time as he gets engaged. Trevor escapes to the country—ostensibly to visit his old tutor, Mr. Smithson, but actually to duck his creditors—where he meets Smithson's lovely daughter, Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him—but the lady has ideas of her own, and Trevor's going to have to measure up…

My Review:

This is said to be the first in a series and it can be read standalone but we meet up with Radley and Wendy from What A Groom Wants (Bridal Favors #4). 
Trevor is a future Duke.  He has been taken to task by his Grandfather the current Duke who has ordered him to find a wife and has cut off funds until he gets engaged.  Mellie Smithson is the bright daughter of his tutor, a wealthy mill owner and scientist. She wants to go to London to find a husband and he needs a fiancĂ©. The plan isn’t perfect but it sure is fun.   
Jade Lee writes a fun, smart historical that will keep you turning pages.
