NEVER LOVE A SCOUNDREL (SECRETS AND SCOUNDRELS # 5) BY DARCY BURKE
Vengeance is seductive…
Labeled a lunatic and a reprobate, Lord Jason Lockwood finds solace in debauchery outside the realm of Polite Society. Years after provoking Jason’s downfall, his bastard brother rises from the rookeries to emerge as the premier gentleman of the ton. Jason vows to uncover the supposedly reformed criminal’s secret motive and use it against him to exact revenge—even if it means using a beautiful young debutante whose only mistake is her relation to the woman who has ensured his family’s infamy.
But revenge is sweet
Lady Lydia Prewitt is everything a debutante should be: beautiful, dowried, and in possession of a sterling reputation. But life beneath the thumb of her malicious aunt is eroding Lydia’s faith in her peers and in herself. When the scandalous yet seductive Lord Lockwood solicits her help to gain entry into the best ballrooms, she jumps at the opportunity to be more than her aunt’s minion. But the revelation of his true purpose and the anger that lies beneath his scarred exterior draws her into his dark past. Intervention doesn’t come without a price—can she risk her own future to save his?
REVIEW: NEVER LOVE A SCOUNDREL (SECRETS AND SCOUNDRELS # 5) BY DARCY BURKE
Never Love a Scoundrel by Darcy Burke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jason and Lydia seem an unlikely match. Lydia is a beautiful woman but social faux pas have left her an outcast with her peers. Jason was born into a life of privledge. He has the title, social standing and the mystery that could make him a great catch but has spent his life being treated like he was never good enough in his father's eyes. Darcy Burke has created a tale of beauty, forgiveness and opening the heart to the possibility of finding acceptance. I received an a copy of Never Love a Scoundrel in exchange for an honest review. The concept that healing a broken heart can be as simple as forgiving yourself is an inspiring theme for a love story.
