Publisher's Summary

Enter the privileged world of English aristocrats, and experience the passion, intrigue, and romantic pleasures of the incomparable Malorys - a family of dashing rogues, rakehell adventurers, and spirited ladies. Now Jeremy, the son of gentleman pirate James Malory, falls in love....

When Danny, a young woman who grew up on the streets of London with no memory of her real family, is banished from her gang because she helped handsome rakehell Jeremy Malory steal back the jewels his friend lost in a card game, Danny demands that Jeremy give her a job. She is determined to become respectable in order to fulfill her dream of marrying and starting a family. Intrigued by her beauty and spunk, Jeremy hires Danny as his upstairs maid, although he wants her as his mistress.

Under the tutelage of Jeremy and his cousin Regina, Danny blossoms into a lady. Although she is drawn to Jeremy by passionate feelings she has never experienced before, she refuses to be anything more than a servant to him, because she knows he is not the marrying kind.

When Danny undergoes a Cinderella-like transformation and poses as Jeremy's new love in an attempt to help him avert a scandal, a few highly placed members of the town remark on how familiar Danny looks. Now tongues are wagging, raising the question of her true identity, which threatens not only Danny's chances of capturing Jeremy's heart but her very life.

The saga continues: listen to more romatic tales of the Malory family.

What the Critics Say

"A terrific tale about a wickedly seductive hero and a wonderfully unconventional heroine....this fairy-tale-like love story [has] a dash of danger in a successful bid to please readers who like witty and sinfully sensual Regency romances." (Booklist0
"Laural Merlington's saucy rendition of Danny's Cockney accent meshes cleverly with her portrayal of Jeremy's deep, sensual voice. Her expert pacing transforms this novel into an all-encompassing listening experience." (AudioFile)

    "Love it"

    Jeremy is my favorite of the Malory men, although very closely followed by James and Derek. This was an excellent book and I didn't want to stop listening. The only thing that bothered me was the way the narrator pronounced Regina's name. Just a small thing though and she did an excellent job with all the different voices.

    "Very enjoyable book to listen to!"

    I was very pleased with the purchase of this book. I looked at this book description many times, hesitant to purchase, but was not disappointed at all. It was a good story line and the narrator did a great job bringing it to life. Many times I find myself wanting to fast forward with books, to get to better parts, but never did that at all with A Loving Scoundrel.

    "A MUST BUY!! Thank you Johanna and Laural!"

    I absolutely LOVED this audio book! Was quite discouraged from listening to audio books after my first try but this book has redeemed my opinion! Laural Merlington was fabulous reading and Johanna Lindsey has always been a favorite author of mine! She carried the characters and her voice brought to life my imagination! I found myself laughing and smiling while listening to this one. I originally bought this book to listen to while I drive my 1-hr trip to work but couldn't stop! Ever chance I had, I turned this book on and have no idea what the heck I'll listen to tomorrow!! I'll definitely buy others by this author as well as by this narrator! Thank you Johanna and Laural!

    "Disappointing"

    I have read/listened to a few of her novels. This is terrible, the narrator is terrible makes the voices patronising and grating. But the worst part is the novel its self; trite, boring, predictable a 4th grader could do a better job. don't buy it waste of money.

    "Very entertaining"

    For some reason, Jeremy has appealed to me more than the rest of the Malory men and I wasn't disappointed in his story. It was maybe a little too perfect though to be believable. I also could not stand the way Regina's name was pronounced. Everytime her name was said I cringed and wondered why the narrator wasn't corrected from the start. All in all though, a very fun read.
