The Scoundrel and the Debutante by @JuliaFLondon Review @HarlequinBooks

The Scoundrel and the Debutante (The Cabot Sisters, #3)
Release date: April 28, 2015
Publisher: Harlequin HQN
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: The Cabot Sisters #3

When a man on a mission takes on a beautiful but unlikely ally, seduction and adventure are inevitable…

The dust of the Cabot sisters' shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she's tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can't deny the temptation.

The fate of Roan Matheson's family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he's out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart's obligations and its forbidden desires.

My Rating: 4 Roses

A charming historical romance that I really liked, The Scoundrel and the Debutante was a lovely read. Packed with misadventures and romance, this book was wonderful and I enjoyed reading it.

Prudence was great. The sensible and practical sister, she had gotten nothing for her good behavior but impending spinsterhood and she was done with it. So, off she went on an adventure and proved herself more than what she thought herself to be. My only issue with her was that, after showing herself to be a strong character, she made a really poor decision that was weakly justified and it ruined an otherwise lovely story. But, other than that, I really liked her.

Road was just wonderful. He was so very sweet and protective over those he loved, including Prudence and his sister. He knew his duty but ultimately knew to go after what he wanted. And, when he fell, he became completely devoted to the woman he loved. I absolutely adored him.

The romance was lovely. Prudence and Roan were great together, so well matched. They were a sweet couple, with a bit of spice, and I was glad to see them get a happy ending.

The plot moved quickly, keeping me interested all the way through. The story was just lovely and the ending was perfect.

The Scoundrel and the Debutante was a wonderfully charming and a dazzlingly romantic read that I really liked. Romance lovers, this is a book worth the read.
