As far as novella's go this is a good lengthy read and good value for money (currently 77p). Some novels, especially romance ones, can have far more padding then necessary and some novella's are too short to build any rapport with the characters.
This novella sits nicely in between. I haven't read the earlier book by Tracy Sumner which includes Kat and Tanner, but soon warmed to them as their characters are cleverly developed and the chemistry between them just grows and grows.
Very well written, I really enjoyed this novella. Why not 5* review then you ask? It could have been easily but for me the 'hard to get' got a little tedious towards the end. Still recommended though, didn't ruin the book.
Many novellas either appear rushed or simply lack the substance of a full length novel but it certainly isn't the case with "To Desire A Scoundrel" by Tracy Sumner! It's beautifully written and unlike many romance stories the characters already have a rich history together with is gradually revealed as the book progresses. Set in the mid 19th century both Tanner and Kat have gone against everything that is considered socially acceptable and had a passionate love affair two years previously leaving them both disillusioned with one another and with the opposite sex in general. Suddenly thrown together two years later can they rekindle what they had whilst betrayal and mistrust render them incapable of admitting their feelings for one another?
Tracy Sumner is a delightful author and I've previously read her wonderful novel, Tides of Love (Seaswept Seduction Series), and this novella certainly lives up to expectations. Well worth adding to your kindle collection!
