5.0 out of 5 stars A great summer read!, August 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lord of Scoundrels (Kindle Edition)
If you like well-written regency romance (and I do) this book is perfect. And such a deal!

This paragraph contains what could be construed as SPOILERS: I almost didn't buy the book because of some of the negative comments about violence but in case you are worried about that - the scoundrel publicly disgraces the heroine, he asks for what he gets, and the author is perfectly clear the entire time that the heroine is a perfect shot and aimed to cause little damage. The scoundrel is mostly upset because it made him swoon. If you read regencies it is more a thing of the time - I can't think of many regencies that I've read where there isn't a duel or some such. Of course it wouldn't happen now. The author is also perfectly clear that the paralysis that follows is not really a result of the wound. Regardless, I found it all perfectly well explained. The only other violent episode involving the heroine is when she takes down someone who is robbing them and only AFTER she's been thrown into a wall.

There are also comments that the heroine is too perfect - I actually disagree. With the wrong hero, she would be overbearingly annoying. The point is she is perfect for THIS scoundrel.

All in all, the back story and characters are well drawn and it was an entertaining and enjoyable book.
