To Love A Wicked Scoundrel by Anabelle Bryant

Release date: April 9, 2014
Publisher: Carina
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

Is there a Lady in the land that can resist this scoundrel’s charms…?

At her step-mother’s command, Isabelle – and her irrepressible step-sister Lily – are leaving the pleasantries of the English countryside behind them, and heading straight to the bustling heart of a London season. Isabelle couldn’t care less about fashionable society, and is even less interested in the name on the lips of every ballroom gossip - Lord Constantine Highborough, reputedly a scoundrel of the highest order! But once he sets eyes on the stunningly beautiful Isabelle, London’s most notorious rake knows exactly where to direct his devilishly bewitching smile.

And everybody knows that Constantine always gets what he wants, usually leaving a trail of broken hearts behind him…

My Rating: 5 Roses

A very sweet, delight of a romance, To Love a Wicked Scoundrel was a fantastic historical romance. I really liked this book and I really enjoyed reading it. It was a truly lovely book.

Isabelle was a wonderful heroine. She was very sensible and, thankfully, not prone to listening to gossip and making judgments based on it (with one exception). After being told by her father for all her life that she was plain, unfortunate, and unworthy, she had some serious self-esteem issues, but even so, she was tougher than she looked. She was a lovely character and I really liked her.

Constantine was amazing. He was a true charmer and it made him endearing right away. Like Isabelle, he had a terrible relationship with his father that affected him even to adulthood and it made him wary of emotional attachments. But, even with his hesitance, it was obvious that he was very sweet and rather adorable. I absolutely loved his character.

The romance was lovely. Isabelle and Constantine were so sweet together and a perfect match. The chemistry between them was simmering from when they first met and led to some steamy scenes. I thought they were a wonderful couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

To Love a Wicked Scoundrel was a delightful historical romance read. This book was sweet, enjoyable, and absolutely fantastic. Romance lovers, this is a must read book.
