"One of the great voices in romance"--"Melinda Helfer, Romantic Times""Poignant, beautifully written...and scorchingly sensual."--"Mary Jo Putney, author of Dancing in The Windhe w

Synopsis

Loretta Chase is one of romance's most beloved authors, and now that she's returned to the Avon Family, we're repackaging one of her most popular books with an updated and fresh cover that will attract old and new readers alike. Determined Lady tough-minded Jessica Trent's sole intention is to free her nitwit brother from the destructive influence of Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquis of Dain. She never expects to desire the arrogant, amoral cad.And when Dain's reciprocal passion places them in a scandalously compromising, and public, position, Jessica is left with no choice but to seek satisfaction. "Lord of Scounderls" - Damn the minx for tempting him, kissing him...and then forcing him to salvage her reputation! Lord Dain can't wait to put the infuriating bluestocking in her place - and in some amorous position. And if that means marriage, so be it! - though Sebastian is less than certain he can continue to remain aloof ...and steel his heart to the sensuous, headstrong lady's considerable charms.

Not a big fan of Regency Romances, I am nevertheless frequently given a push by a friend who is. Lord of Scoundrels was given to me by her because she'd acquired a duplicate copy. I was dubious when I opened it up, but by the end of the prologue I was hooked and my heart ached for Dain as a child.
Then we met Jessica - and her first encounter with Dain, the adult - and I was off on a rollercoaster of passion, romance, action and surely the most hilarious verbal sparring between hero and heroine to ever grace a romance novel! I simply couldn't put it down and loved every minute. It had me laughing out loud - especially as Dain's every attempt to embarrass Jess with sexual innuendo ended with her turning the tables and having him blushing. LOL!
But it was also hot and sensual - I think that first kiss under the street lamp must rank as THE most senuous romantic encounter I've ever read.
Simply a delight from start to finish and one of the best books - romance or otherwise - I've ever read. It now has pride of place on my bookshelves and I know I'll revisit Dain and Jess again and again.
I've also read The Last Hellion and didn't find it quite as witty or as senusally intense. But still very enjoyable and on par with the best regency authors currently around.
Definitely highly recommended.
I'll agree though that the cover was a mistake. No prude, I nevertheless found myself hiding it in case my husband caught sight of it and blushing furiously at the thought that anyone might see me with it!

I absolutely adore this book. One of the best romances I have read. I just love the way Jessica is instantly attracted to the dark, brooding and supposedly ugly brute that is Lord Dain. The love scenes sizzle and yet are also very tender and heartwarming. Even when she shoots him it's romantic!. Jessica was just such a wonderful person and I have not warmed to a heroine like her since. So many female characters seem so cold and spiteful and spend all there time denying their attraction you wonder what the hero's see in them. But not so with Jessica and Dain. This really is a wonderful book by Loretta Chase and not to be missed. A keeper!!

[Please note - this review was for the original paperback issue of the book. This book has now been reissued with a much better cover!]

Is it just me, or are most Regency mass-market paperback covers just AWFUL? They usually have a scantily-clad and dishy man in a semi-compromising position with a beautiful woman whose dress seems to be falling down. And such was the cover of this book - I wouldn't have bought it if it weren't for the great reviews on Amazon.co.uk. And I am glad I looked beyond the dismal cover as it was a very good book!

Firstly, that cover. Presumably the man on the front (a shiny chestnut-haired, muscular Adonis with slightly tanned skin and a traditionally handsome face) is meant to be Sebastian Ballister, Marquess of Dain and the hero of this story. However, we are told right at the beginning of the story that Dain is actually ugly; well, if not ugly, certainly not your traditional handsome hero. He's got a huge nose, he's half-Italian and therefore very swarthy and he has black curly hair. Oh, and he's enormously tall and very well muscled. Doesn't sound like our rather average-sized hero on the front cover of this book.

Jessica Trent, our heroine, is tall-ish, stunningly beautiful (of course) with long black hair which is usually pinned up in rather bad hairstyles. Now the woman in this picture is probably an amazon as she looks about the same height as the bloke and we have already established that Dain is well over six feet tall. Hmmm. Apart from that she answers reasonably to the description of our heroine.

This is the first book I have read from this author - I will definitely looking out for more of her books.

This was the first historical romance I read and I've yet to find one to better it. The cover is very off putting, but appears to be more or less mandatory for this genre. The story is good and the characters are brilliant. Lord Dain has to be one of the most memorable romantic heroes ever. Loretta Chase has a very witty turn of phrase and is a natural story teller. This is the third book in a series of four (so far, at least): Lion's Daughter, Captives of the Night, Lord of Scoundrels and Last Hellion. They are all good and don't have to be read in order. I'm now eagerly awaiting the next Loretta Chase.
