Publisher's Summary

<

i>They call him many names, but angelic isn't one of them.

Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world.

Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him - and with him her family and future - means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible that the person who needs saving most is Jessica herself.

    "Wonderful story read amazingly"

    I loved loved loved this book. The story was a great read and Kate Reading does an amazing job. I would recommend this book and this read to anyone who is a fan of early 1800's literature. Just with a dash of little sash.

    Story
    "Kate Reading is a fantastic reader."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would like to see the story line condensed a little. The story seemed to drag. Good story, but slow.


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    Listening to Kate Reading was like listening to a whole cast of actors. She made the story come to life.


    Was Lord of Scoundrels worth the listening time?

    Yes, sweet ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Lorretta Chase showed how a child is effected by his family and environment and that effect can follow through and cause disconnect in the adults life.

    Story
    "Best in Series."

    Though I do not understand the timeline issues (this book happens at exactly the same time the previous one does) I absolutely loved it. Having been my second time reading, and first actually reading the series in order, I had forgotten how much I love this book.
    Chase delves into the very soul of the pro/antagonist, because he is both. By beginning the book with the root of his "issues" the reader better understands his adult actions and why he is attracted to someone like Jess. Chase must have done mighty clinical psych research for this book, because she hit the character exactly, as well as the type of female he would be attracted to.
    The narration is great, again. I disliked the first book so much I think I critiqued every single part and parcel of it. However, Chase got better with time. This is also on my re-read (again) list.

    Story
    "Caught me Off-guard, but LOVED This Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Lord of Scoundrels the most enjoyable?

    The main character - when I first began to read this book - my thoughts were ugh! But then!! It just took off with a strong woman and strong man - each out dueling the other.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The conniving thoughts of the two main characters and Kate Reading is spot on with the narration.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Oh gosh! Again, both of the main characters...her ability to interplay the voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!! Once I finally got into it...what's going to happen next? !


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted more of this book to learn the other characters so I HAD to buy the 2 predecessors to understand important characters referred to in this book.

    Only one character reminded me of Turnip...that was the voice for the brother, but of course one can only vary the voice so much. :)
    I just enjoyed this book...it took me away from reality, but it gives a dose as well.

    Fantastic characters and wildly entertaining! I look forward to other books by Loretta Chase. Richly sensual and decidedly funny. You will enjoy this book for both the story and the narrator.

    "Outstanding!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I couldn't stop listening to it and I've listened twice. I tried to just listen at the bookmarks the second time around and couldn't. I had to listen all over again. When you listen to the main characters, Jessica and Dain I could literally see a boxing match of words and wit. Neither one would give in. Above all I loved the way Jessica would not give into Dain's negativity. It helped him a lot.


    What other book might you compare Lord of Scoundrels to and why?

    The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley. The way the book made me feel while listening. The sadness, excitement, the love between Ian and his brothers, you name it. It has so much and so does this book.


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    Great! She gave life to the characters, with distinction. You could actually see in your mind's eye the characters faces.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When Dain left Jessica in the garden in a state of undress and did not take up for her. When Jessica shot him; when Dain went to rescue his son and his son, Vincent, called him Papa for the first time..


    Any additional comments?

    I could understand the paranoia of Dain when it came to women or anyone. He was not raised with tenderness and love. His attitude was understandable. I also enjoyed the character of Jessica's grandmother. She gave good advise.
