To Tempt a Scoundrel by Christi Caldwell Review

Never trust a gentleman… 
Once before, Lady Alice Winterbourne trusted her heart to an honorable, respectable man… only to be jilted in the scandal of the Season. Longing for an escape from all the whispers and humiliation, Alice eagerly accepts an invitation to her friend’s house party. In the country, she hopes to find some peace from the embarrassment left in London… Unfortunately, she finds her former betrothed and his new bride in attendance. 

Never love a lady… 
Lord Rhys Brookfield has no interest in marriage. Ever. He’s worked quite hard at building both his fortune and his reputation as a rogue—and intends to enjoy all that they can offer him. That is if his match-making mother will stop pairing him with prospective brides. When Rhys and Alice meet, sparks flare. But with every new encounter, their first impressions of one another are challenged and an unlikely friendship is forged. 

Desperate, Rhys proposes a pretend courtship, one meant to spite Alice’s former betrothed and prevent any matchmaking attempts toward Rhys. What neither expects is that a pretense can become so much more. Or that a burning passion can heal… and hurt.

The next installment (book 15) in The Heart of a Duke series is here, and I was totally enchanted with the story by the third chapter.

You really have it all in To Tempt a Scoundrel, from overbearing and controlling mothers, to sweet nieces, and from scandals to risking your heart, Alice and Rhys take you on a heartbreakingly, beautiful love story, that really gives you that warm and fuzzy glow by the end of the book.

Overall the story is wonderful written, and the story so enchanting, that its one that I wish would never come to an end, but it does, but the one (of many) thing I love about Christi Caldwell's books, is that the story never truly comes to an end, because all the characters are woven together, which just makes the authors "England" a little more real to me.

I give To Tempt a Scoundrel 5 stars.

USA Today Bestselling author, Christi Caldwell blames Judith McNaught's "Whitney, My Love," for luring her into the world of historical romance. While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!
