She explains, “Having Dain be half-Italian fit so many aspects of his story: Jessica again takes the initiative and forces Dain to accept responsibility for the boy and come lloretta terms with his painful childhood. He was a hones to God lunatic.
And he loves him…why? Those sexy Italian husky whispered words and love statements? Characters from other books appear, but in a minor way. Return to Book Page. Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know.
Lord Dain can’t wait to put the infuriating bluestocking in her place—and in some amorous position. I loved how Dain would figure things out in his mind. One of the true treasures of the genre, she epitomizes the essence of excellence in every word she writes”.
Absolutely blooming brilliant book. In a loving household, he would have grown up with a better self-image, and would have dealt with bullying at school in a different way, and thus would have grown up into someone altogether different from the man Jessica meets in that antique shop”. A coldly resolute Jessica decides to have her revenge and does what any self-respecting woman would do; she hires a lawyer to obtain a financial settlement!
Also, the sex scenes were not noteworthy. I wanted to punch the kid and get the divorce started for the heroine. They were perfectly matched, each possessing a strength and a quality that the other did not. In my books, the women are not lesser, and they do matter.

BOOK REVIEW: Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase
First time reading this author. Lord of Scoundrelsby my meaning, is a wonderful memorable romantic HR comedy. I think that’s the same problem I had with this book too.
Just as well he gets my obsession with reading! Dain is outraged that the impudent Miss Trent has possession of something he covets, so he sets out of buy it from her.
Lord of Scoundrels
I could have stomached his gradual approval of the kid IF the kid became better. I just wanted to take you and hug you and tell you that you were worthy of love. As with many of her stories, Chase made her heroine a strong female, deciding to model Jessica after the type of women who lived a few generations previously and who had “a more practical, frank attitude toward sex”. Thank God that Lady Jessica came into his life, because I’m not sure there was another person in the world who could get through to him and into his heart, and go toe-to-toe with him.
Sebastian Ballister, Blackthorne – Marquess of Dain seen by the noble society, including himself, as the darksome and black eyed very ugly, unattractive devil himself. Yes, give him love.
