Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sloane’s fifth title in the Regency Rogues series, following The Saint Who Stole My Heart (2012), finds Lady Sophia determined to find out why her mother was killed. After she hears new information about the death, she enlists the aid of Nicholas Bourne, her fiancé Langdon’s younger brother. Newly returned to England from India, Nicholas is initially reluctant, but agrees to help when Sophia says that, given her background as an aide at Scotland Yard and her criminal psychology avocation, she will hunt down the mysterious killer known as the Bishop. At first Sophia is a little uneasy in Nicholas’ presence, and finally realizes it’s because she loves him more than his brother, her intended. When she and Nicholas go to her family’s summer home where her mother was killed, and where she, Nicholas, and Langdon played as children, it becomes more and more difficult to resist their passion while they look into her mother’s final days. Sloane leavens the grim investigation and the angst of illicit love with humor in this satisfying tale. --Pat Henshaw

More About the Author

A native Northwesterner with the pale skin to prove it, Stefanie credits her parents' eclectic reading habits--not to mention their decision to live in the middle of nowhere--for her love of books. A childhood spent lost in the pages of countless novels led Stefanie to college where she majored in English. No one was more surprised than Stefanie when she actually put her degree to use and landed a job in Amazon.com's Books editorial department. She spent over five years reading for a living before retiring to concentrate on her own stories. Stefanie currently resides with her family in Seattle.

As someone who somehow missed the rest of the books in this series, (shame on me I know!) I admit to having a bit of an issue at first picking it up. Its like trying to read the Harry Potter series out of order, all the characters know each other and are familiar and you're the outsider who stumbled in asking around because you have no clue what a muggle is.

However let this not dissuade you first timers from reading this series out of order. All in all I found the book a wonderful display of regency era romance. And the author somehow being psychic and knowing that sometimes a reader just can't get to all the good books fast enough, gives you a wonderful taste of each of the previous characters as well as future characters.

On the character themselves, I was utterly charmed. This was a book (and I'm assuming the series to) where a lot of thought went into who the characters were. Nicholas (our bad boy ;) ) is not the typical handsome regency hero who does right all his life. In fact he is someone we can relate to in modern days (for those 5 guys who read regency romances..ok 6 ). And Sophia is a character who reminds you of the little sister you shake your head at for not realizing that the boy she's been friends with forever is ...[Spoiler alert] actually the love of her life.

Sophia has been promised to Nicholas' brother all their lives but Nicholas has secretly loved Sophia. When Sophia asks Nicholas to help her continue with the quest to find her mother's murder he agrees. This was a fun mystery , romance with some great twists. Looking forward to Langdon Bourne, the earl of Stonecliffe book, number six of the Regency Rogues.

If you enjoy this genre I would also suggest; Along Came a Duke: Rhymes With Love ,Blame It on Bath: The Truth About the Duke & Sweet Surrender.

I received this book from the publisher with a request to read it and write a review. I had high hopes for the book, but cannot say that the book fulfilled those hopes. The plot premise was good - a woman searching to find out her mother's murderer - but the execution of the plot did not live up to the story. I found the character dialogues to be fragmented and disjointed at times, scenes changed without seeming to flow, and there was no resolution to the central question of the plot - who ordered Sophia's mother's murder, and why? There needed to be additional insight into the two main characters - Sophia and Nicholas; it didn't feel as if the reader truly gets to know and understand them. I found that the story felt like it was missing pieces. It was not a bad story, just not complete. I will probably try something else written by this author and compare.

The Scoundrel in the book is Nicholas and the Bride is Sophia. They along with Nicholas's brother Langdon have been friends since they were children. Langdon is the oldest and the perfect son. Sophia is Langdon's promised bride. Thus we have the triangle set up.

The story revolves around the murder of Sophia's Mother when all three were children. That murder has not been solved but a new clue has been unearthed. Sophia is determined to follow it and find the killer but she needs help. She turns to Nicholas for help, as Langdon would try to stop her from going into danger.

With this set up the story moves rapidly forward. There is danger, suspense, romance and more danger. I liked both Sophia and Nicholas and often found Langdon clueless. It did make for a good touch to the story.

This is the second book in the Regency Rogues series and the story line here is a continuation from the first book. While more information about the murder is uncovered in The Scoundrel Takes a Bride the mystery is not solved. That is left for the next book. Of course there is a really fun and exciting journey leading up to the HEA for Nicholas and Sophia.

4 to 4.5 stars!!

If you like historical romance with murder & mystery thrown in, this one is wonderful. I liked how Stefanie had spies in the story line. You will find yourself cheering on the hero and heroine. They have great chemistry and an undeniable pull to each other.

I'm sad to say that I haven't read any of the previous books before this one ( The Scoundrel Takes a Bride is actually #5 in the Regency Rogues series), BUT I will have to go back and read them. I enjoyed this book very much. I didn't feel lost from not reading the other books. The author did a great job describing each character and what the relationship was to the main two characters.

Oh my! I do love a good regency romance! What a lovely couple!! Sophia is a great character and I admire her for trying to find her mother's killer. Nicholas is not always like-able but he grew on me.

The romance is slow to build perhaps because the heroine is engaged to the hero's brother. It is nicely done and not in a cheating sort of way.

The steam factor is low, like lukewarm. But it is a well written story so that should not dissuade.

Cover art - Steamy!! I could look at it for quite awhile without getting bored!!
