Publisher's Summary

They are England's most eligible bachelors, with the most scandalous reputations. But for the right woman, even an unrepentant rogue may mend his ways.…
Lady Grace Mabry's ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her…or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of Lovingdon?
With no interest in marriage, Lovingdon has long lived only for pleasure. He sees little harm in helping Grace find a proper match. He simply has to teach the lovely innocent all the ploys a scoundrel uses to gain a woman's favor…by demonstrating his wicked ways. But as lessons lead to torrid passion and Grace becomes ensnared in another man's marriage plot, Lovingdon must wage a desperate gamble: Open his heart fully or risk losing the woman he adores….

Lovely story, disappointing reader

Another lovely story from Lorraine Heath but the reader is disappointing, especially after we heard the other stories in this series wonderfully read by Susan Ericksen! All the characters sound the same! Where is Susan when we need her?!

I can't make myself finish it.

Would you try another book from Lorraine Heath and/or Helen Lloyd?

The reader has a very mature voice and it just does not work for the girl in the story. I had to keep reminding myself I was listening to a young woman and not my grandma. Eventually it wasn't worth the effort and I quit listening. I may buy the book and read it on my own because I really liked the Scoundrels previous series.

What was most disappointing about Lorraine Heath’s story?

The reader. She would be a wonderful narrator for some books, but just not one where she's supposed to sound like a young woman.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Helen Lloyd?

Susan Erickson.
