Synopsis

They call him many names, but Angelic isn't one of them . . .

Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters"—and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best—sin and sin again—and all that's going swimmingly, thank you . . . until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world . . .

Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him—and with him, her family and future—means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible, and the person who needs the most saving is—herself!

The part of me that is a curmudgeonly git did occasionally question her historical plausibility but most of me didn’t care.

Sparks fly between the two over from the beginning to the very end. The dialogue is engaging and entertaining, and Jessica and Dain are two characters you’ll want to revisit time and time again.

Below average

...Jessica has a lot of very unromantic work in front of her to ease both Dominick and Dain’s transition into emotional maturity...Lord of Scoundrels simply attempts too much.
