"Marlowe's delightful tale is replete with unexpected characters, a wonderful romance and a page-turning plot."—RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars

John Fitzhugh Barrett, unexpected heir to a marquessate, suddenly has ladies from all over the country descending upon him. But John doesn't owe anything to the family who let him think he was a bastard all his life, and he's determined to marry the woman he wants.

John Fitzhugh Barrett, surprised to learn he is heir to a marquessate, is determined his new status won't mean giving up his freedom. But as families from all over England descend upon Somerfield Park for the shooting season, their unmarried daughters are lining up to bag the newest trophy buck—him.

John's instinct for self-preservation inspires him to divide his attentions between a scandalous young widow, and the safely ineligible Rebecca Kearsey, daughter of a destitute baron.

The charade gives John the illusion of controlling the game but when he loses his heart to the beautiful Rebecca, all bets are off.

Praise for A Rake by Any Other Name:
"Marlowe shines with a delightful and delicious comedy of errors...Regency fans will love this page-turner." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
