“Is there a Lady in the land that can resist this scoundrel’s charms…?
At her step-mother’s command, Isabelle – and her irrepressible step-sister Lily – are leaving the pleasantries of the English countryside behind them, and heading straight to the bustling heart of a London season. Isabelle couldn’t care less about fashionable society, and is even less interested in the name on the lips of every ballroom gossip – Lord Constantine Highborough, reputedly a scoundrel of the highest order! But once he sets eyes on the stunningly beautiful Isabelle, London’s most notorious rake knows exactly where to direct his devilishly bewitching smile.
And everybody knows that Constantine always gets what he wants, usually leaving a trail of broken hearts behind him…
I devoured this book in one sitting. I thought “To love a wicked scoundrel” was a sumptuous period romance with all the opulence of a BBC costume drama.
Isabelle isn’t a silly little chit; she is a woman who know her own mind and won’t compromise just to land a husband.
Con- Rake or Rogue? He certainly acts like a rogue and likes to give the impression of both; but underneath, he is neither. I got the feeling her is a completely different man- as you will find out later.
Con and Isabelle’s first encounter was electric; I got goosebumps with anticipation. Isabelle enchants Con; his desire and wooing of her is just so enticing. I wished I was Isabelle myself a few times. To love a wicked scoundrel is a very steamy romance and utterly delicious.
This is the kind of book you wake up early to read on a spring morning,and read in the garden with a cup of tea. solitude and yummy treats is all you need for this wonderful experience.
To love a wicked scoundrel is a scintillating debut by Anabelle Bryant and one thing is clear- she understands passion. I eagerly await the next Anabelle Bryant book.
