Lord of Scoundrels was such a fun read! It has to be one of the funniest historical romances I’ve ever read, but not without sacrificing a good story, great characters, and enjoyable romance.
They call him many names, but Angelic isn't one of them . . .
Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters"—and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best—sin and sin again—and all that's going swimmingly, thank you . . . until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.
She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world . . .
Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him—and with him, her family and future—means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible, and the person who needs the most saving is—herself!
The characters really made Lord of Scoundrels. I adored Jessica – she’s not willing to be dependent on men, but at the same time she’s thoroughly aware of the restrictions society places on her. I think that’s what thrilled me the most – she’s so intelligent and she works the system in brilliant and sometimes hilarious ways to her benefit.
Not to leave out Dain – he’s equally conniving and intelligent and he has a scandalous reputation (hence Lord of Scoundrels). He’s called Beelzebub, his reputation is so devilish. But he’s not so bad, just a bit wounded.
I just loved listening to Jess and Dain go at it – they argue and plot and scheme with the best of them and it was hilarious. And it made watching them fall in love, despite their protests to the contrary, fabulous. I highly recommend Kate Reading’s narration – she does a really good job with the variety of voices and accents.
Lord of Scoundrels had it all – hilarious plots, dimwitted fools, sweet romance, heart wrenching moments. I definitely recommend it for historical romance fans.
