Book Review: The Scoundrel and the Debutante

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 sideand in his bedhe'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.

I do enjoy reading a good historical romance from time to time. I have found that the ones that I really get into tend to have spunky heroines who find ways around society’s strictures.

That is what I thought that I was getting with this book. Instead, while I liked Prudence, she was far to prone to regrets when she did do what she wanted. There was so much angst dripping off of the pages that I wanted to just shake Pru. Why worry so much since she was already considered ‘tainted’ through no fault of her own.

Now some of my readers might really enjoy this book but it definitely wasn't my cup of tea. If you do give it a try, be sure to let me know what you think.
