Publisher's Summary

A hot historical romance from USA TODAY best-selling author Jess Michaels

Annabelle Flynn is the sister of London's two biggest libertines, and her reaction has been to become the picture of purity. But the sensual nature of her family has not been lost on her, and she is troubled by urges she dare not follow. She ignores the demands of her body and instead throws herself into two different activities. One is pursuing a proper marriage in society and the other is trying to save her broken brother by following him into the shocking Donville Masquerade, part of a hell run by the mysterious Marcus Rivers.

By day, Annabelle pursues ladylike endeavors and seeks a staid husband to combat the wild reputations of her brothers. By night, she inserts herself into Marcus's business...and eventually she finds herself seduced into his bed.

But can a not-quite-proper lady and an entirely unsuitable cad find anything in common outside of the bedroom? And will Annabelle be willing to trade passion for cold, calculated "perfection"?

This book can be heard as a stand-alone novel, but is part of The Notorious Flynns series.

    "Wow...... no, realllly, WOW!"

    Story: Excellent! Predictable, more or less implausible and rather too much angst from the hero. But totally excellent anyway! I realllly truly enjoyed this book!

    Narrator: Also excellent, her voice is soft but not whispery. I find there is nothing negative to say, just very very good.

    Heat Factor: Fire extinguisher please! (yes, scorching)

    "Blush much?"
    Would you listen to The Scoundrel's Lover again? Why?

    Yes if no one knew I was listening to it.


    Would you recommend The Scoundrel's Lover to your friends? Why or why not?

    Depends on the friend. If the friend thought 50 Shades of Grey was tame then absolutely I would recommend this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That family busting in to the room.


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

    Extreme reaction? My husband liked that I listed to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    First book in series although explicit in parts it was much more sweet and tame. A gentler love story. This was a man who has seen and done everything doing it to an innocent.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Up on the SEXY scale from book 1!"

    This - the second installment of The Notorious Flynns - is definitely a notch up on the sexy scale. The story is not the best - felt like there needed to be a little something more in the way of a plot line, but as I have said before - sometimes just want a hot steamy sexy listen. I really liked Marcus, but never felt connected to Annabelle. I also thought the ending felt way rushed....but it was hot!

    I'm already listening to the third book and I feel like it is going to surpass both its predecessors on the sexy scale!

    I am enjoying these light easy listening respites from the more thought provoking books I listen to!

    Story
    "HOT sex alert"

    Passionate and HOT sex scenes, a super likable hero, and a less than desirable storyline sums this book up. I admit I finished this read in one day. Simply could not put it down. At the end though I have to say if you are looking for a great time filled with entertainment, then this is your stop, but if you are looking for a grand storyline with a complex plot and no passion, then move on.

    "Everyone Has the Right to Say No."

    This is the story of a young woman whose brothers have bad reputations which she has to try to overcome. She also wants to save one of her brothers from himself. She is described as intelligent and determined. My problem as a reader is that intelligent people tend to be more successful at the task they set themselves than this young lady is. She and other characters seem to think intelligence is the willingness to argue; even if the goal the young woman is trying to reach is rarely made. But hey she's charming and genuinely cares for her family.

    SPOILER ALERT: Our Hero will not allow himself be with our Heroine because he is trying to protect her from his own bad reputation, even though he loves her deeply. So our lovely Heroine ties her beloved to a bed and in spite of his protest has her gentle way with him. She notes that his mouth says no no, but his body is saying yes yes. All of which is OK, because he finally admits his love, and wants her as much as she wants him.

    If she is so smart, she could have persuaded him without the ropes. Or she could have at least seduced an agreement from him. Just because her beloved is male, just because she is doing what she is doing in the name of love, tying someone up and having sex with that person who is saying no is rape. It is particularly repugnant when the person in charge of the ropes dismisses her beloveds wishes because in spite of his words his biology is reacting to physical stimuli. When both parties are agreeable such a scene is very hot. This scene could have been sizzling instead of just contemptible.

    "Erotic historical romance"

    Annabelle is ready to leave the wicked ways of her brothers now that one has become a duke. She's ready to marry up in society or so she thinks. She doesn't expect to be so attracted to the owner of the sex & gambling club, Marcus (who had been attracted to her for years) when looking for her brother at his club. It's a hot, sexually arousing, romance story. Worth my credit.

    "Slightly disappointing"

    There's a fine line between steamy Georgian Romance and porn . Regrettably this title crossed that line which compromised its readability, its credibility & my enjoyability of the story. A pity because the plot was interesting & promised an enjoyable read.
