      I picked this book out for one reason, the ridiculous title, and boy did this deliver. This is a story about a biker gang curricle driving club called Sons Lords of Anarchy who get up to all sorts of nefarious biker gang curricle driving club crimes and murder people and stuff. I'm not joking, this is straight up a regency biker gang romance starting off a SERIES of this (!!), so buckle the fuck up, oh wait you can't, seat belts haven't been invented yet. This is is one cracked out series theme [...]

      Marriages of convenience stories are common in romance, but in her first book in the Lords of Anarchy series, Manda Collins gives her readers a betrothal of convenience story. Lord Frederick Lisle, a younger son of the Duke of Pemberton, and poet Miss Leonora Craven are betrothed—for the second time. Nora ended their first betrothal, leaving Freddy brokenhearted. Now she needs his help in discovering what really happened the night her brother died. Freddy shares her suspicions, and he had alre [...]

      This book featured the unconventional Miss Leonora “Nora” Craven, who was trying to find out what happened to her twin brother. She asked or rather demanded assistance for her former fiancé Lord Frederick “Freddy” Lisle, who was also her deceased brother’s best friend. Freddy saw this as an opportunity to avenge his friend as well as regain Nora’s affection, so he agreed. Thus began the journey to a second chance at love.This is my first book by this author so I wondered if this ser [...]

      A Good Rake is Hard to Find kicks off a new series from one of my favourite historical romance authors, Manda Collins. This new series is obviously inspired by Sons of Anarchy, since it revolves around a notorious curricle racing club, Lords of Anarchy. Perhaps you might think this is a ridiculous set up, and I would agree, but only if you mean ridiculously awesome!When Miss Lenora Craven’s brother, Jonathan, dies in an “accident” while racing with the club, Lenora refuses to believe that [...]

      Read this review on Got Fiction? book blogSo I'm going to preface this review with the fact that I typically love Manda Collins, and that the concept of a Regency Motorcycle Driving Club is awesome and a totally untapped plot. That being said, I had a really hard time with this one, so hard in fact I DNF'd it. But not because it's bad, or the writing suckedunfortunately this DNF is because of a huge, giant, enormous, Big Misunderstanding. And to be honest, that wouldn't bother me enough to DNF, [...]

      I really enjoyed Ms Collins’s previous Ugly Ducklings and Wicked Widows series. So I was looking forward to reading this first book in her new Lords of Anarchy series but, overall, I was disappointed.Frederick was honourable, patient and protective…all the qualities I look for in a hero but he didn’t seem to have that dynamic presence on the page. Leonora was my sort of heroine…unconventional (a poet and a staunch proponent of women’s rights), intelligent, bold and outspoken.I wanted t [...]

      Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyA Good Rake is Hard to Find is book one in Manda Collins exciting new series, Lords of Anarchy and if the rest of the series lives up to the promise of this book, we are in for a wonderful ride. Years ago, Lord Frederick Lisle and Miss Leonora Craven were in love with a promise of a wonderful future but much to Freddy's dismay Nora broke it off with him. Leaving him rather desolate.

    12. Leone (She Reads too Much Romance)

      As much as I love and favor regency novels this book isn't one of my favorites. I have so much respect for Collins as an author as I have greatly enjoyed other books that she has written, but this book felt too dry for me for a romance novel. From the beginning to the end of my reading I had an issue with staying entertained by both the plot and the characters. There were brief moments that excelled the pace of the book before the pages turned back into a slower pace.The main reason that I am no [...]

      First reviewed on A Weebish Book Blog4 starsI purchased this book at a time when I was in a historical romance slump because I knew it would be just the novel I would love the minute I found myself interesting in reading the genre again. I was not wrong thinking I would love this book and thanks to Manda Collins I am now craving even more from this genre — and more from the Lords of Anarchy.A DUKE IS HARD TO FIND by Manda Collins is a heart -touching historical romance about the once engaged L [...]

    14. Amelia

      A Good Rake is Hard to Find delivers about what you’d expect. It’s a fun, light Regency romp with some good characters (but no great ones) and a sprinkling of minor issues. Aside from the occasional minor inconsistencies and dropped threads, it’s well-written, and I felt that it had just the right amount of on-screen sex – a little bit, but never overwhelming the narrative. My chief complaint is that the ending felt rushed. I wanted a lot more detail in the climactic scene of the defeat- [...]

      *I got this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* “A good Rake is hard to find” is the 1st book in the “Lord of Anarchy” series by Manda Collins. First of all I don’t understand why everybody on seems to love this book, I found it – mostly – downright boring and quite bumpy.Leonora Collins, a stubborn bluestocking and popular female poem writer, is mourning the death of her brother Johnny who participated in races arranged by the “Lord of Anarchy”, a Regency kin [...]

    16. Debbie Lester

      Manda Collins brings readers the first book in a new series. A Good Rake is Hard to Find is the first book in the Lord's of Anarchy series featuring a maniacal driving club that is up to more than just carriage races and pranks. Collins shows a lot of potential in this first book, with both romance and mystery at it's center. Her characters are captivating and the mystery of Jonathon's death is riveting. If readers are looking for a different face of the ton, this might just be the book for them [...]

      A Good Rake is Hard to Find from Lords of Anarchy series by Manda Collins was well, it seems I'm outgrown of her books, and this book was the one that tipped the scales.I was ranting already with her Wicked Widows series, that her books have lot of logical mistakes and time continuity mistakes, and so does this book. Another good book for exercising your eye muscles, since there are many possibilities to roll your eyes.The story is about Leonora, who's brother was killed/died in carriage accide [...]

    18. Maria Rose

      I quite enjoyed this historical romance novel! The story pulls you in right away with the tragic death of Nora's brother, a death she attributes to his involvement with the Lords of Anarchy driving club and one she is determined to investigate, as is her ex-fiance and friend of her brother, Freddy. Forming an alliance again for the sake of solving the mystery, it becomes more than just a pretend engagement as the feelings they had before come back to the surface. I really liked both characters i [...]

      I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

      I received this book through a First Reads GiveawayLeonora's beloved brother has been killed in a riding accident. She believes it was no accident and that he was murdered. She needs help to prove it so she enlists the aid of one of his best friends, Frederick.For a historical read, I thought the plot was a bit strange. Her brother, Jonathan, was part of a gang fraternal society that supposedly held races with horses and carriages. Apparently he had evidence about how the leader was obtaining hi [...]

    23. Belinda

      I enjoyed reading the romance of Freddy and Lenora in Ms Collin's latest book. She writes effortlessly and gives everyone a tale to remember. I like the characters and how they relate to each other. Lenora Craven has lost a beloved brother Jonathan to a driving accident that took his life. She blames the Lords of Anarchy a club in which members drive fast and notorious for reckless deeds. She does believe her brother was singled and murdered because of a letter written to her from him causing sp [...]

    24. Tory Michaels

      Sometimes I think I'm just too easy to please, but on the whole, I really liked this book by Ms. Collins.I appreciated the back-story/prior engagement of Nora and Freddie. I felt it gave their reasons for not being together more umph even as they underwent the sham engagement to get closer to the Lords of Anarchy who might've been responsible for Nora's brother's death. The one thing I didn't care for was the fact that Nora hadn't told Freddie the real reason (back many years ago) for ending the [...]

      Wow! What a wild ride for Leonora and Freddie! Freshly returned from nearly a decade of self-imposed exile on the continent after Nora broke their engagement, Freddie agrees to help Nora uncover the truth about her brother's death. Posing as a reunited and once again betrothed couple, they attempt to infiltrate the fast-driving, danger-tempting driving club known as the Lords of Anarchy.

      Freddy's girl sometimes has issues understanding him, "She. Was. My. Cousin ,” Freddy said through clenched teeth. “And we were only talking. Good God, Leonora, no wonder your brother refused to speak to me for a full year afterward . I thought it was because he thought I should have married you anyway." Freddy really does care for his woman but the boy shows it at the wrong times, "A shaft of rage ran through Freddy. Leonora might have been killed, he fumed as he pulled her tighter. “Let [...]

    27. Margaret Sholders

      I liked this book. Manda has put together a story line that will drive itself into your soul or turn your stomach like me. I had to keep putting it down and it started right at the beginning. I couldn't stay away from it either. Leonora, or Nora, has just lost her brother from a curricle race. Or was he? She goes to her ex-fiancee for help. His cousin is head of the driving club her brother was in. Freddy still loves her but she has a major spoiler right up to the end. They work together but can [...]

    28. GONZA

      I must admit that I liked right away Nora and Federick, mostly because she is not the usual character that is associated with the heroines of novels regency. They also have a shared past and is therefore easier for me to imagine that their feelings were not then so immediate and not credible, as often happens in these novels where everybody seems to be lovestruck and falls immediately and totally in love. Devo ammettere che Nora e Federick mi sono piaciuti subito, anche perché lei non é il sol [...]

    29. Elizabeth Wright

      This book was everything I look for in a historical romance, any romance really. I was immediately sucked inside the story. The imagery was vivid, the characters even more so. The romance was wonderful. It was sexy, sweet, and angsty. Leonora and Freddy were an amazing couple. Adding to an already winning combo was the mystery and danger involved in their hunt for Johnathan's killer. The bad villains were so nasty and devious they will give you the shivers. It was an absolute pleasure to read th [...]
