4.0 out of 5 stars 4.25 stars-romantic and engaging tale of seduction 19 Aug 2014
By Sandy S. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
4.25 stars-HOW THE SCOUNDREL SEDUCES is the third instalment in Sabrina Jeffries The Duke’s Men historical romance series focusing on the men (and women) who work for Manton Investigations. This is Tristan Bonnaud (half brother to Dominick Manton) and Lady Zoe Keane’s storyline. Zoe and Tristan were first introduced to one another in book two When The Rogue Returns.

The focus of the storyline follows Zoe as she hires Manton Investigations to search for a mysterious gypsy woman with possible connections to her family. Zoe finds herself beholding to Tristan Bonnaud (a man she once believed to be a rogue and a thief) to aid in the search for the woman. But Tristan’s need to take on this particular investigation is less than honorable when he uses the time to search for another gypsy believed to be in league with his evil half-brother George. What our couple never expected to find is a deeper connection to one another than they could ever have imagined.

The relationship between Zoe and Tristan is one of immediate attraction but Zoe’s father has other plans for his daughter. Tristan is the ‘bastard’ son of Viscount Rathmoor and believes he is not worthy of a Lady’s love and continues to push Zoe away believing she may be betrothed to another man but Zoe is a woman possessed to find the missing woman and Tristan is the man with whom she is falling in love. The sexual tension is high and the mores of the day find the couple in a compromising position that results in an admission of a possible future together.

The secondary characters are colorful and add mystery, suspense and some heartbreaking revelations to the story. Several of the previous storyline characters play an active role in both the hunt and the identity of the mystery woman. We are introduced Zoe’s American cousin Keane whose own story is a mystery with a few secrets yet to be revealed.

HOW THE SCOUNDREL SEDUCES is another well paced, romantic and engaging tale of seduction, mystery and family secrets. Sabrina Jeffries pulls the reader into a captivating story of love, loss and betrayal. There are painful revelations and an emotional fall out for two families whose lives are connected by one woman-a woman whose only sin was to fall in love with the wrong man- but a woman who sacrificed her life for the life of another.

By Patty McKenna Van Hulle - Published on

The title should be How The Lady Seduces the Scoundrel because Lady Zoe truly TAKES her Scoundrel any & every way she can!

Tristan Bonnaud is the illegitimate son of his Viscount dad & French mom & he was raised on the estate will his sister & his half brothers, George the heir & Dom. George has always hated his Father's illegitimate kids & Dom. When their dying father wrote a deathbed amendment to his will to provide for his illegitimate family, George burned it after their father breathed his last breath. Tristan stole the horse his father willed him & sold it to his Romany friend Milosh, but was accused of horse theft & he, his mom & sister fleed to France. In France, Tristan worked for the secret police & after their mom's death, he & his sister moved back to London & joined Dom's Manton Investigations business.

Lady Zoe Keane learns that her parents bought her from a beaten Romany woman named Drinia from her Aunt Flo, but her father, loving called The Major, won't answer any of her questions about it. The Major's title (Earl of Olivier), estates & money will lucky be passed down to her, but if she isn't his birth daughter then everything will go to her American Cousin Jeremy Keane. If she isn't his daughter, she must marry her cousin to protect all that she & her father have built. Zoe will hire The Duke's Men (aka Manton Investigations) & they will have to take her case because they owe her for helping them with a case in Scotland & she means to collect.

Zoe doesn't want the rude & wide shouldered Tristan anywhere near her case, but only he knows the Romany language & customs. Tristan wants the case, so he can find his friend Milosh & hopefully get some dirt on his evil older brother. Tristan ends his personal interview with the hellion by kissing her panties off. Tristan & Zoe are like oil & water & their chemistry is as explosive as like lighter fluid & an open flame. They have to work together to unravel Zoe's birth, dance a few sexy waltzes together, dodge Zoe's prim & proper Aunt Flo, keep Cousin Jeremy close, just in case she has to marry him, stop loving Tristan's knee melting kisses, avoid Tristan's psychotic brother George, visit Romany winter camps for Milosh, discover unknown relatives, face many new & old nemeses & Zoe must stop falling in love with Tristan because he NEVER wants a wife! This romance read has many twists, turns, big speed bumps, sharp cliffs & unexpected challenges along the way, but sometimes all the answers are back at the beginning. Can Tristan realize that Zoe is his perfect match? How can Zoe unlock his heart? Will Zoe lose her titled or gain the love of her life? PRETTY PLEASE, can I put peanut butter covered George in a dark room filled with rats?

When I started reading romances, Sabrina Jeffries was my go-to author at my local library & I cut my baby romance teeth on her amazing books. She writes with such humor & all her characters pop off the pages (Kindle) & landed in my heart. This read has her humor galore & snappy & witty dialogue. She blends her characters from the Duke's Men books into this story & I just love the quirk Duchess, Lisette. Zoe was an unusual 1829 woman, raised as a future heir & given an education at her father's side, but her inner naughty girl woke up & went after her scoundrel. Tristan worked hard for everything he had & accomplished, but didn't think he was worth much in other's eyes, but Zoe & The Major truly saw him for himself, warts & all. I read a lot for my own personal sanity & I am rarely unable to figure out plots, but Ms. Jeffries got me good with this INTRIGUE AWESOMENESS! She not only told Zoe & Tristan's story, but set up poor overworked Dom with his old flame for the next The Duke's Men series, which I can't wait to get my greedy hands on. Ms. Jeffries didn't miss the utterly decadent passionate scenes in this tale. Me, my kindle, my Ms. Mister Fan & A/C got 1 HADES of a work out, so I got to munch on chocolate & not worry about extra hips & that is always a plus! Ms. Jefferies earns my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes & PRETTY PLEASE write Dom's story faster for me!

NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars...Sabrina Jeffries NEVER disappoints me, and “How the Scoundrel Seduces” is no exception. 19 Aug 2014
By Linda Abbott - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a lot of books in a year, some are entertaining, and some not so much. That’s why I am so excited when Sabrina Jefferies has a new book out. She is one of my favorite authors, and on my automatically buy list. Her books are well written and a cut above the usual romances that come out. She NEVER disappoints me, and “How the Scoundrel Seduces” is no exception.
Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. The majority of the facts presented in the previous books are explained in this book. I do think though, that when you read a series from the beginning you get a much better feel for the characters. FYI: Tristan Bonnaud was introduced in “What the Duke Desires” (book #1 of the Duke’s Men series), and Lady Zoe Keane is introduced in When the Rogue Returns (book #2).
This story has a fresh scenario. (I will say no more to prevent spoilers). It is fast paced, and I was constantly rushing through my day so I could get back to it. I really enjoyed the development of the characters, and the banter between them. Best of all I could not easily predict ending!
note:I was lucky enough to be approved to receive an advanced reader copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Scoundrel and The Lady 22 Aug 2014
By Rosemary - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Lady Zoe Keane is the daughter of an Earl or is she. There are secrets and she needs to know the truth. Her father won't answer her questions. So she goes to Manton's Investigations to hire them to get answers. Tristan Bonnaud is sent to help because of his knowledge and skills, but he is disdainful of the Lady. He is determined not to like her but sparks fly when Lady Zoe and Tristan are near each other. Can they work together? This book is a wonderful combination of romance and mystery. This story is a roller coaster ride of love, passion and treachery. All of the characters are well written and compelling. Lady Zoe and Tristan are engaged in a love hate relationship that kept me reading. How the Scoundrel Seduces is a wonderful story. Sabrina Jeffries keeps getting better. I can't wait for her next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book 3 23 Aug 2014
By Angie Drane - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Sabrina Jeffries knows how to write a great historical romance. I've read quite a few of her books, but somehow I've skipped this series. I really thought that I had read the first couple in this series, but it seems as if I have them buried somewhere in my TBR pile and started with the wrong book. It wasn't too bad by starting with this one. It has a lot of information from the previous books, but it was easy to follow along. I'm definitely going back to read the first two cause I'm hooked on this family. Loved Tristan. Loved Zoe. Loved everything about this book.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
