READ AND REVIEW
SWEETEST SCOUNDREL (MAIDEN LANE # 9) BY ELIZABETH HOYT
Release Date: November 24, 2015
SHE'S TAKING CHARGE
Prim, proper, and thrifty, Eve Dinwoody is all business when it comes to protecting her brother's investment. But when she agrees to control the purse strings of London's premier pleasure garden, Harte's Folly, she finds herself butting heads with an infuriating scoundrel who can't be controlled.
HE'S RUNNING THE SHOW
Bawdy and bold, Asa Makepeace doesn't have time for a penny-pinching prude like Eve. As the garden's larger-than-life owner, he's already dealing with self-centered sopranos and temperamental tenors. He's not about to let an aristocratic woman boss him around . . . no matter how enticing she is.
BUT LOVE CONQUERS ALL
In spite of her lack of theatrical experience—and her fiery clashes with Asa—Eve is determined to turn Harte's Folly into a smashing success. But the harder she tries to manage the stubborn rake, the harder it is to ignore his seductive charm and raw magnetism. There's no denying the smoldering fire between them—and trying to put it out would be the greatest folly of all.
REVIEW: SWEETEST SCOUNDREL (MAIDEN LANE # 9) BY ELIZABETH HOYT
Sweetest Scoundrel by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A good heroine should be strong-willed and not afraid to stand her ground. She should be able to stand side by side with the hero and not be overshadowed. Elizabeth Hoyt took these factors into consideration while writing Sweetest Scoundrel. Asa was a large part of the story. He and Eve complemented each other well. Sweetest Scoundrel would not have worked as well without these two characters leading the pack. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Like a symphony, Sweetest Scoundrel's Eve and Asa were perfectly in tune. Their chemistry, antagonism and personalities hit the right note in every way.
