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.

    "Perfect love story"

    This one made me cry...they were just the perfect couple. I loved this love story, I had read the book a couple of years ago, but listening to the story was amazing.

    "Typical romance novel"

    Not too much of a story but enjoyable nonetheless.
    A good book to pass the time while your looking for the next great novel.

    Story
    "Fun, but a lot long and repetitive."

    This book was a light listen, but the story theme seemed to just repeat, which made it long and burning after about the half way point.

    "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.
