The Perfect Rake

The Perfect Rake (Merridew Series) - Anne Gracie The most (intentionally) hilarious romance I have ever read. Gideon was a fantastic hero, devilishly rakish while still being extremely considerate of Prudence, and of course wickedly funny. I haven't laughed so much at a romance novel since my friends and I read aloud from Vampire Lover by Charlotte Lamb (hilarious in all the wrong ways). I will definitely look forward to reading more from Ms. Gracie (though I do wish she'd rein in her enthusiasm a little--the book was distractingly overrun with exclamation points in many places).
