There’s just one thing she needs to do before she confirms her spinsterhood forever: spend one blissful night in Roman’s arms. But her handsome rogue isn’t ready to have the tables turned.

REVIEW: A GAME OF PERSUASION BY EMMA LOCKE
A Game of Persuasion: Extended Prologue for The Art of Ruining a Rake (The Naughty Girls Book 3) by Emma Locke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Game of Persuasion is a prequel to The Art of Ruining a Rake. The Art of Ruining a Rake is the story. Once I realized that I went back and read both books. They fit well together. I wish I would have figured it out before. Still an entertaining read. I received a copy of A Game of Persuasion in exchange for an honest review.
THE ART OF RUINING A RAKE BY EMMA LOCKE
HE WANTS HER...
Practiced rake Roman Alexander never meant to seduce his best friend's sister. He certainly never intends to do it again. The handsome scoundrel has never felt more compelled to be a better man. But the damage has been done, for his buttoned-up spinster refuses to marry a bounder like him—and maddeningly, she doesn't seem to like him. Nevertheless, he can't seem to forget her, or her passionate response to his kisses. How much danger could there be in one more try?
SHE WANTS REVENGE
Practical headmistress Lucy Lancester naively believes her charming rogue has moved on to his next conquest, leaving her free to cherish their one night together for the rest of her bluestocking days. Until the afternoon he arrives at her school intent on proving their one night together wasn't enough—and this time, the scandal can't be contained. Well, two can play at that. How hard can it be to ruin a rake?

The Art of Ruining a Rake (The Naughty Girls Book 3) by Emma Locke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ADORABLE! Emma Locke has found a new fan. Roman and Lucy were magnetic. I had to finish this story as soon as I started it. It was so cute how she tried to turn the tables and ended up falling into her own trap. It was wonderful how strong Lucy was in her beliefs. Normally the heroine gives in way too quickly. But she was spunky and determined to do things her way. Roman discovers that whenever the heart is involved anything goes and is willing to give his all to prove that he is all in. I received a copy of The Art of Ruining a Rake in exchange for an honest review. It is obvious to me that I love a story when it keeps drawing me back whenever I have to put it down. This was one of those types of reads for me.
