Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is playing matchmaker in Regency London. . . only it seems she's placed a curse on the lovers instead.
~~He was late to his own wedding~~
Simon is known as Lord Rakehell, so any sane woman would be wary of wedding a man of his reputation. He loves Georgiana, and is determined to prove it to her, but how can he overcome his wedding-day blunder?
~~She was heartbroken by the scandal~~
Georgiana knew the dangers of falling instantly in love with a celebrated rake, but even she had not expected him to show up for their nuptials with ladies-of-the-evening in tow. Now she must determine whether Simon's protestations of love are genuine, or if she is being led astray by the passion he continues to incite in her.
*I received a free copy of Lord Rakehell’s Love directly from the author in exchange of an honest review*
Lord Rakehell’s Love is a quick and humorous novella in the first book of Donna Cummings’ new historical romance series The Curse of True Love. I loved both of the main characters, Simon is the Lord who is more known for being a rake than anything else, but once he loses his heart to Georgina, he doesn’t want anybody else anymore. Georgina, despite her mother’s warnings not to ever wed a rake, can’t help but be swept off her feet, and she has a hard time not loving Simon, even after the disaster on their wedding day.
I loved the humorous way Aphrodite and Ares were introduced to the story, and how they even were a part of the mortal world during Lord Rakehell’s Love. Both the humor and the exquisite chemistry between Georgina and Simon jumped out of the pages and made for a very enjoyable and quick read. I know I will read more in this series, because I want to see what mischief Aphrodite and Ares are up to, and I also think I know who one of the main characters will be.

Pleasure. Yes, that is indeed what it would be, were they to ever kiss. His touch practically promised it.
She was torn between wishing something dreadful had befallen him, and wishing he would arrive so she could be the one who caused something dreadful to befall him.
“Your fondness for gothic reading material must be curbed,” Simon answered with a frown. “And soon.”
“If I ever have that dreamy quality to my voice when describing a woman I want to bed-” Simon scowled at him. “”ed,” Hugh amended. “A woman I want to wed. March me to the most public spot in Hyde Park and aim my own dueling pistol at my heart.” “I am an excellent shot, Weyson, but even I am unable to make a direct hit on an invisible target.”
