Francine Larrabee woke up on the wrong side of the century. She was fairly certain she went to sleep in her own comfy bed, but she doesn’t quite seem to be there now. Only adding to her problems is that she has no voice, is constantly being glowered at by a large, stunning man who is obsessed with propriety, and she is apparently betrothed to another horrid little man, determined to ruin her, and any other girls that get in his way.

How does she find herself in the past, when she couldn’t even find herself in her present? How does a self sufficient businesswoman survive in a time when women were still considered property for the whole of their lives and what is she going to do with this man who draws her to him so fiercely.
When Francine left her apartment that morning for work she had no idea what was around the next bend.  Suddenly after an accident she's thrust into the past and into a life and time she knows nothing about.  With a brooding gorgeous man hovering over her every move, she must quickly learn to adapt and regain her lost voice.

I was thrilled when Jenn asked me to take part in the re-release of the Rake and the Recluse.  The story of Gideon and Francine is so much fun and presented in such a unique format.  The photos that Jenn uses to present her characters are fantastic.  It's amazing to have a visual for the characters as you read what happens.

I'm looking forward to reading all the parts to this re-vamped edited version of the R & the R.  I thoroughly enjoyed my first read of this book last year and will be anxiously awaiting the remaining un-released portions of the story.
