In The Secrets of a Scoundrel, New York Times bestselling author Gaelen Foley has created her most exciting Inferno Club novel yet!

Nick, Lord Forrester, has a reputation that is legendary—both as a lethal warrior and a wicked lover. But when his rule-breaking ways land him in a Scottish dungeon, he's left there to rot, until a mysterious lady visits his cell and offers him a way out.

All he must do is risk his neck on the mission she proposes—and obey her every command. One look at the luscious beauty has Nick ready to promise her anything, but he must resist his desire, or she could send him straight back to prison.

Virginia, Lady Burke, is well aware that the powerful ex-spy will try to take command of their quest, but it's her job to keep him under control. Yet how can she keep this untamable scoundrel under her thumb when all she really wants is to unleash the smoldering passion between them?

My Rating: 5 Roses

Thrilling, romantic, and absolutely fantastic, The Secrets of a Scoundrel was a wonderful read. It had thrilling action, sweet and hot romance, and a very enjoyable story. I loved this book!

Virginia was a very strong heroine. She was tough, clever, and definitely a force to be reckoned with. She was determined to find the missing girls that were taken by a crime ring, fiercely protective of her son, and very likable. I thought she was great.

Nick was also amazing. He was a truly honorable man that was harder on himself than even the people who put him in jail. He was convinced of his own flaws, but he was  a good man. He was definitely strong, very clever, and extremely determined when he set his mind to something. He could also be very sweet and was protective of those he cared about. I thought he was wonderful.

The romance was lovely. Virginia and Nick were great together. They were both so strong willed and they met their match in each other. The chemistry between them was hot. From the beginning, the attraction was there, and it was steamy. These two were a perfect couple.

Phillip was Virginia's son and he was wonderful. He was definitely his mother's son. Despite her determination to keep him protected, he wasn't going to let an opportunity to help (and, more importantly, an adventure) pass him by. He was more clever, determined, and tough than he seems at first glance and just adorable.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were plenty of thrills along the way that kept me on the edge of my seat. And, there were a few surprises along the way, with both Virginia and Nick working hard to keep their secrets. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

The Secrets of a Scoundrel was a fantastic historical romance. I really liked this book. It had thrills, romance, and a story that kept me hooked. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll want to read.
