Publisher's Summary

London, 1822.

Thanks to her older siblings, Lady Penelope Tidemore is no stranger to scandal. In order for her to make a good match, her secret longings for intrigue and romance must be quelled. Yet it is through terrible mischance that Penelope is caught in a compromising position - however innocent - with the darkly enigmatic viscount Ryker Black.

Mr. Black is no gentleman. Raised from the streets and proprietor of the most notorious gaming hell in London, Black lives in a world filled with debauchery and danger. Taking a Society wife from the very ton he despises is not part of his plan, even if the innocent Penelope turns his blood hot with desire.

But Penelope isn't afraid of Mr. Black, and she soon discovers that his reputation as a scoundrel may be designed to hide a surprising vulnerability. As this unlikely husband and wife grow closer, they learn that what started as chance could end up sealing their fates.

    "DISAPPOINTING ENDING!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes the ending !!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Tell me how the villain Broderick Killoran was mad to suffer for attempting to murder the heroine.
    What happen to the Duke Rykers father in the story. There relationship should have been restored.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Tim Campbell is Excellent narrator and yes I have listen to him before


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The Romance was very good. It was the unresolved issue the book seem to have lacked resolution to some of the problems that occur n the storyline


    Any additional comments?

    The Scoundrel's Honor was and excellent romantic story up until the end. What the heck happen?

    Ryker Black, owner of the Gaming Hell named the Hell & Sin Club has recently be titled the new Viscount of Chatham. Ryker is also the Bastard son of a Duke. The Duke who you meet in book 1 The Rogues Wager is a wonderful man who loved his illegitimate children. Ryker was stolen at birth from the Dukes Mistress. Rykers mother right after birth and sold to Mac Diggory a real Thug of the streets of St. Giles. He abused Ryker with beatings mock hangings. It was just awful the child abuse Ryker suffered. But Ryker blames is father the Duke who was told he died at birth. This story goes unresolved between the Duke and Ryker. I thought at the end he would finally except his father and they would build a real father and son relationship. His sister Helena whom he saved from being killed by Diggory as a young girl see bk 1. has built a relationship with the Duke once she learned the truth about how she was taken from her father. But the entire story just drops off the pages. Instead the author goes to the easy route. Lets have the villain stab the heroine, same old same old easy cheesy storyline!! Even the villain Broderick Killoran is vaguely handled in the end. What the Heck? he just tried to kill your young wife!!! This is just pure lazy writing.

    Lady Penelope/Penny Tidemore 18 years of age. Is a beautifully written character this young girl has guts. After being found in what appears to be a compromising position with Ryker in the gardens at a ball she is attending. She offers herself up to marry the cold hearted man. Remember she is only 18 and the daughter of an Earl. Her brother is the current Earl and there family is full of scandal. So to ensure the proper chances of her younger sister Poppy to make a great match for a husband she marries Ryker and moves from the plush home she has grown up in Mayfair to the slums of St Giles to the Hell and Sin gaming club. Penelope has strength of character and she tries to make her marriage work even with it looks hopeless. This young lady does not loose hope. She slowly but surely breaks brings Ryker around into caring for her then loving her. Penelope is smart, beautiful, proper lady, and very young but I loved her character. Boy was she strong!!

    The ending of The Scoundrel's Honor just fall flat about 65 - 70% into the story. Relevant issues are left hanging or barely resolved. Was this pure laziness on the authors part? I don't know what I do know is this story had the potential to be a 5 star story!!

    "Not as good as the first book"

    I'm trying real hard to finish this book but its just not as good as the first book. I just cant get into the story line. The hero broods way too much for me.

    "Tissues Required!"

    This story is full of emotion, drama, a touch of action and a wonderful loving family of misfits who have each other's back. By the end of the story I was a tearful mess. Miss Caldwell just keeps getting better.

    "The Thing about Gardens"

    First, Tim Campbell is a favorite narrator of mine. His voice is perfection. All easy to understand & you really get into his story telling.
    The book is great. I love Christi Caldwell's writing style. This book is a fabulous as a stand alone but if you are like me and love a series you are in luck. This book is a marriage of 2 series. The Tidmores are back! The third Tidmore girl is out in society. There is only fun with this family. The hero is a Dukes son by his mistress. But somehow (well the book will explain) was raised in Seven Dials. These two meet & everything changes. Lots of fun. Lots of intrigue. It's romance book with a bit of mystery thrown in! I love the evolving of the characters. I hope you enjoy as well. Whisper sync makes it even better!

    "WOW!"
    What did you love best about The Scoundrel's Honor?

    The ending. What a sweet conclusion to another great book by Christi Caldwell! I love a happy ending; this was one of her best!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scoundrel's Honor?

    Penelope's injury and Ryker's reaction to it. Poppy's first glimpse of Ryker. The ending. Penelope decorating the office.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! This one was very well done as usual. I always enjoy his performance.


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

    Yes! Unfortunately life interrupts.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of Christi Caldwell's best! I've become a big fan! I hope Poppy's story is coming soon.

    "Annoying "

    Female character was very annoying. I can't see how the main male character would ever be attracted to her.

    Any additional comments?

    Caldwell does a fantastic job of creating characters so unlikely to meet or match that you will be amazed at the perfect fit she accomplished.There are surprises and sadness woven into a story of love and acceptance. The supporting characters are entertainingly enrich the story. Campbell does a masterful job of narrating all the way to a beautiful finish. Full of hope, betrayal, baggage, seduction, love and redemption; don't miss this one.
