Synopsis

Will his wicked ways be her undoing? Or, will she turn the tables on the handsome rogue? An enticing new series introduces the spirited graduates of Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies - unconventional heiresses, more than matches for society's irresistible rogues! Lady Amelia Plume has many admirers. Too bad they're all fortune hunters or fops who can't provide the exotic adventures she seeks. But the ballrooms of Mayfair have become much more appealing since the arrival of Major Lucas Winter, an American with a dark past and dangerous air. Lucas is brash, arrogant and scandalously tempting. Every thrilling kiss sparks hotter desire, yet Amelia suspects Lucas has a hidden motive in wooing her. And she intends to discover it, by any means necessary...

Never Seduce a Scoundrel is a enchanting and delightful read of romance. Wealthy heiress Lady Charlotte eloped with handsome charming soldier Jimmy Harris, but quickly regretted her choice as he wasted her fortune and showed no interest in her once he controlled her money. She felt relief when he was killed in a duel and vowed to protect other rich ladies from marrying golddiggers. Thus with the help of Cousin Michael, she establishes Mrs. Harris' School for Young Ladies that accepts only heiresses as students so that she can provide them with private instructions.
In 1818 in London Mrs. Harris chaperones wealthy heiress Lady Amelia Plume, who has plenty of admirers, but to her protector they all seem more interested with the lass' money as a horde of fortune hunting fops plague the balls. Amelia finds her season boring as Mrs. Harris rejects most males. That is tedious until American Major Lucas Winter arrogantly courts her over Mrs. Harris' objection as she assumes the Yank is a fortune hunter. Amelia thinks he has a different motive, but not love at first sight. She vows to uncover his agenda, while he seeks an embezzler who left Lucas' reputation in ruins and he believes she is the link.
The opening of a new regency series by talented Sabrina Jeffries will elate the sub-genre faithful especially since NEVER SEDUCE A SCOUNDREL is a terrific tale. Amelia is a naïve, innocent, and bold individual while Lucas is a fascinating character planning to seduce the truth from her, but soon finds he has been seduced by love. Mrs. Harris is an ideal support character who hopefully will have her story told.

Sj has been a favourite of mine since discovering her books a couple of years ago. She doesn't dissapoint with this one niether. I loved it, her heroine is naughty and the poor hero certainly doesn't know what's hit him. If he was expecting the usual debutante he was very mistaken, she definitely knows what she wants and he's taken on a ride of trusting her word and her judgement. Delightful and strong, brilliant to see an author continuously delivering what her fans want, other authors take note,please.

Amazon recommended this author because I've bought quite a few books by Mary Balogh and Liz Carlyle - their books are very much my guilty pleasure! So, because I thought the title sounded quite fun, I gave this one a go.

First of all, Sabrina Jeffries is, for my money, not a patch on Mary Balogh, in terms of plotting, dialogue or faithfulness to the period - the latter, especially, is atrocious in this book. There's no attempt at making the dialogue sound 'period' beyond shoving in the odd 'ma'am' and 'sir'. The main characters are quite appealing, though, and the story is quite pacey, if utterly predictable. I'm actually not sure if there was supposed to be a 'twist' because although the author seemed to be holding things back, what was going to happen next was as plain as the nose on your face. But Lucas Winter is an attractive hero with the requisite inner demons and murky past, and Amelia is witty and spirited. The book is quite self consciously 'racy' and some of the love scenes work very well - but there is one that is so contrived it actually made me giggle helplessly, which I'm not sure was the author's intention.

I also found the 'agenda' behind this book (brave, virile, brooding American vs. treacherous, materialistic, effeminate English) quite wearing. I don't mind a bit of politics, but in this book, the heroine and Mrs Harris aside, there wasn't a single English character in the book who wasn't flawed or unattractive in some way or other, and the lack of subtlety with which this was rammed home just irritated me.

In summary, this isn't bad - but there's stuff out there that's way better.
