There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have seen some of the 1 star reviews and I can completely agree with them.
It ever there was a ridiculous and sense lacking book! The H is selfish, lazy ass, cruel, mean and all that is bad Now, you would think the h would be at least a bit hurting, affected by his cruel ways Because she loves him no matter he raped her Our supposed hero, Lord Quinton of the perfect face and Adonis physique, returns in Book 2 on the Somervilles.
As before, he is still bitter and jealous of his older brother who he blames for all his unhappiness.
A Perfect Scoundrel by Heather Cullman – FictionDB
Despite his looks and charm, he feels that no one would accept him because of his lack of title and small estate. He is in love with the seasons beauty and decides to compromise her as he cannot compete with her other suitors in status or finances. Very innocently her beloved stepsister becomes compromised instead.
For the first half of this book, Quinton is unbearable. He refuses to take responsibility for all of his bad feelings and actions. He blames Nicholas his brother; his father the Marquis; and poor Jane the wife he is stuck with, ignoring a miserable few flashes of insight. But then comes the second half of this story. And it is a thing of beauty, as Quinton gradually transforms into the man he was meant to be.
A Perfect Scoundrel
A very excellent tale. Just remember to keep reading till the end. One person found this helpful. I’m being generous with these three stars.
It’s more like 2. The hero starts off as a jerk, but that’s to be expected.
He’s supposed to get better through our heroine’s pluckiness, but I mean, heatehr does and he doesn’t. Also, she is plucky and she isn’t. I was just disappointed with how, the minute she stood sscoundrel him through his kidney stones, they were just all better.
I wanted him to improve more gradually. I loved that she turned his crumbling estate into a functioning one, but I wanted her to be tougher with him. As for the romance, her started getting all courtly and flowery with her almost immediately and I guess I wanted that to develop more organically.
I’m not saying it’s awful. I’m just saying it had potential to be better and kind of got lazy in the middle. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I loved this book. I am a huge fan of historical novels. I enjoy the typical perfech even when it is sometimes unbelievably unrealistic.
I love girl meets boy, falls in love with boy and through a quirk of fate they marry and then you spend chapter after chapter watching them go through ridiculous sometimes unbelievable acoundrel unrealistic adversity only to fall in love in the end. The heroin had heathe enough moxy and fortitude to make her likeable. The hero was a complete wastrel, but I liked that the heroin forced him to grow up and accept responsibility for his life.
I am a true sucker for a happy ending.
I am a firm believer, at least in my romance novels, that reformed rakes make the best husbands. There are those of you who will not like my opinion and will completely rail against my love of this book because of the wedding night scene. I will admit it gave me pause and made me cringe. I could have lived without this scene, but I was able to put it in historical, yet painful perspective.
I remain a hopeless, hopeful romantic, stuck in Edwardian, Elizabethan, and Victorian England. While I do not like the Hero I really liked the plot line and the story.
It was a great read and I enjoyed all of the different twists and turns it took. I will not ruin this for you I hope by telling you that at last the plain girl learns beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder Quentin Somerville plans to trick an innocent girl into marriage for her money, winds up with the plainer cousin by accident, is forced into wedlock and rapes his bride on their wedding night.
THEN, he reveals himself to be lazy, selfish, hypocritical, arrogant, small-minded and completely lacking in honor. This is the guy we’re supposed to root for? When the main character is still insulting and demeaning his wife more than half way through the book, I give up! I wish Jane had shoved him in a ditch and left him there to rot.
It was better than he deserved. See all 31 reviews. Amazon Giveaway psrfect you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
