review Rake with a Frozen Heart Free download Rake with a Frozen Heart é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Waking up in a stranger's bed Henrietta Markham encounters the most darkly sensual man she has ever met The last thing she remembers is being attacked by a housebreaker yet being rescued. I was reading The Origins of Sex by Faramerz Dabhoiwala and the chapter that especially caught my attention was the chapter about the birth of the Cult of Seduction Dabhoiwala claims that there was a significant change in the way women s sexuality was viewed and it happened around 17th century To simplify it before women were considered sexual creatures who led men astray and after the switch it was men who seduced women and women generally had no sexuality of their own until it was brought to life by a man This gave a rise to a common paranoia about lusty males who are out to get every innocent and chaste woman in sight There were hundreds of books pamphlets paintings whose main goal was to warn women against rakes or gasp libertines Reading examples of all these sad stories made me really want to read a romance with a rake in the title Basically I wanted exactly the same story as those uoted in the Cult of Seduction chapter but with a happy ending Luck had it I saw this for 140 in Kindle Store and it s a MillsBoon MillsBoon is a brand you can usually trust They have been doing it for years and they can deliver so I bought without hesitation Rake with a Frozen Heart is essentially a story about a sweet innocent chaste girl and a rich handsome rake Our heroine Henrietta has been repeatedly warned by her mother to stay clear of rakes And what does Henrietta do Falls for the first rake she meets Of course this is a romance novel so our rake is given some redeeming ualities He might be a rake but all the women he sleeps with are experienced and they know it s only sex Well at least that s what Rafe St Alban says But I would like to call him out on this He eventually does sleep with Henrietta who is neither experienced nor aware it s only sex She is uite obviously in love with him And at that point he has no idea he is starring in a MillsBoon so he doesn t know they will get married and live happily ever after At that point he still thinks he is in 19th century pamphlet warning young maidens against rakes and libertines because he has no intention of making an honest woman out of her Henrietta is bloody lucky it s a MillsBoons because that s the only way this story can have a happy ending and her reckless behaviour does not lead to her ruin Now if Rafe failed to notice he was corrupting an innocent girl this time how can I believe all his previous conuests were as honourable as he claims You know what they say never trust a rakeAnother interesting point is the sexuality of the heroine It is in perfect accordance with the 18th century idea of asexuality of women unless of course instilled in them by men And here we have it Henrietta was completely free of any sexual desire and has never felt as much as a tingle between her legs in all her twenty odd years of life Yet when a notorious rake sticks his tongue in her mouth well there you have it She is all about sex from now A woman who has never even masturbated will go down and suck this rake s cock just a few chapters later Yes ladies beware of rakes Only let yourself loose if you are sure you are in a MillsBoon and you are the heroine and not some disposable secondary character In this case by all means go for it
