What is it with our love of bad boys? No matter what the genre, we all develop a soft spot for them. For historical romance, the classic bad boy type character is the rake. He’s the guy your matchmaking mother doesn’t want knocking on your door. He drinks too much, he gambles too deeply and chases skirt too ardently. He’s a rogue that can’t be tamed by anyone. Or can he?
(I am using the male pronoun a lot of this one, as a overwhelming majority of rake characters are men. But, if you find a female rake…go for it!)
