Review of Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

Lord of Scoundrels
By Loretta Chase
I don’t pay for many books – I prefer to see what I can find on free download days – but I did pay for this historical romance because of its high recommendations.  It doesn’t disappoint. 

Sebastian Leslie Guy de Ath Ballister is an earl.  He’s rich, but he’s far from attractive.  His father hated him.  His mother ran off and left him to his father’s mercy.  He has to pay for sex.  He gambles and carouses. No decent English woman with any self-worth would ever marry him.

Then Jessica Pembury enters the picture.  She is angry with Sebastian for encouraging her brother into a life of dissipation.  Yet, she finds herself strangely attracted to the brutish man.  She ignores his attempts to disgust her and refuses to find him revolting, like most woman do.  Sebastian is completely confused by Jessica yet finds himself falling in love with her.

Will Sebastian mend his wicked ways to win Jessica?  Is there a happily ever after for this odd couple?

The conversation and interactions between roguish Sebastian and clever Jessica are witty and hilarious.  Lord of Scoundrels won’t bore you for one moment. It was worth every penny.


Five stars
