Format: Paperback
Iris Johansen has created yet another compelling romance. The characters are vivid, their emotions and desires well expressed, and their actions clearly explained (even if I didn't always agree with them). The plot is well developed and executed.
The story begins in the fictional country, Montavia, located near Russia, and continues through England and other fictional Balkan countries. It takes place during the years of the Napoleanic Wars. The heroine, Marianna Sanders, is endagered due to her knowledge of facts that could change the course of the entire war; she also has to find a way to protect her little brother. The hero, Jordan Draken, is one of several people trying to get to her to discover what she knows. He ends up being their rescuer and protector from the bad guys, who want the knowledge that Marianna has to do evil and gain more power. In the process of trying to save the world, Marianna and Jordan fall in love (the love scenes, as expected from this author, are very well done). But living happily ever after won't be easy, as they encounter obstacles toward their path to happiness. In addition to the main action, there is a very interesting subplot involving the hero's mother.
As mentioned before, the characters were well done; my only problem with the characters is their reasoning in doing some of the things they do. But overall, this was a very good book that will give readers many hours of pleasure.

Format: Paperback
I enjoy Iris Johansen's modern thrillers, but I must say that her historical romances do not convince me. This one took place in an unidentified Balkan kingdom, so it is difficult for me to evaluate how accurate its history was. I have severe doubts, however.
More importantly, the romance itself did not work for me. The hero annoyed rather than attracted me, his sidekick was too good to be true, and the heroine recovered too swiftly from the extremely traumatic event that sets the stage for the novel. The only character I liked was the heroine's little brother, but he was too peripheral to the action to carry the book. I'll stick to her thrillers from now on.

This novel made me an Iris Johanson fan! What I love about her works are her strong characters, particularly the heroines. Marianna is a strong, intelligent, creative young woman, who is not the victim of The Beloved Scoundrel, but the champion of the story. Her wit and her passion endear her not only to the handsome hero, but to the readers as well. Bravo, Ms. Johanson!

I love reading the beloved scoundrel, but i couldn't understand what makes or how did Jordan feel lust for Marianna,they hardly know each other except for a few heart conversation. I thought Marianna is going to hide the Jedalar in one of the panel and never knew she's going to blow-up the tunnel. She's a very brave women and Jordan not much of a scoundrel but yet their lovemaking is wonderful and they actually have lust each other although the love comes later..its a good reading Iris.
