5+ stars – Paranormal Romance
This is another kick-ass read in the awesome, wildly entertaining The Blades of the Rose series that’s an intriguing, unique blend of Victorian-era historical and paranormal. Scoundrel is an exciting combination of action, adventure, magic, mystery, treasure hunting, seafaring, dangerous intrigue, humor, and steamy romance with an exotic Greek setting and fabulous characters.
It reads like a thrilling action-adventure movie that grabbed my attention from the very first page and never let go. I loved it! I didn’t think the series could get any better than Warrior, but I enjoyed this just as much. And that’s largely because of sexy, shameless Scoundrel hero, Bennett Day, who’s just to die for yummy.
Bennett Day loves the ladies. As an agent for The Blades of the Rose, a secret society dedicated to protecting the world’s magic sources from the evil Heirs who seek to obtain and abuse them for their own gain and power, his primary duty is always to the mission. But if all in a days work, the success of an operation should happen to involve getting under a woman’s skirt and petticoats or seducing a married woman to obtain vital information? Well, then that’s just gravy. The notorious ladies’ man has always been able to keep things carefree, easy, and aloof when it comes to women he’s attracted, seduced, and/or bedded, but then again, Bennett’s never encountered a woman like London Harcourt before.
The womanizing adventurer finally meets his match in intelligent, spirited widow London and finds himself strangely and completely captivated by her. It’s too bad that she’s the daughter of a top member of the Blades sworn enemy, the Heirs. Now it’s up to Bennett and some of his Blade allies to convince expert linguist London to help them translate an ancient dialect in order to find a magical source that’s hidden somewhere in the Greek isles before the Heirs find and use it for their evil aims.
Bennett is a flirtatious, affable, and charming adventure seeker who plays the part of devil-may-care scoundrel, rake, rogue, wastrel, and libertine proudly and with debonair ease. He and London share an explosive attraction and magnetic chemistry that turns into a wildly passionate affair in the midst of exploration and danger. He’s certain that he’ll eventually be able to move on easily when things cool down, like he always does. But when Bennett and London traverse the perilous waters of emotion, will he still be able to play the unaffected scoundrel? Whew...the scenes between these two are intense, fun, and smokin’ HOT!
And Bennett? He had me melting and swooning as if I’d been baking out under the blazing Greek sun all day. And I really liked that much of the story is told from Bennett’s POV because his internal thoughts flat-out cracked me up. He’s sexy, fun, infectiously cheerful, witty, wickedly charming, protective, strong, honest, and courageous, and when he realizes and declares his feelings...it’s utterly romantic, sweet, and sigh-worthy.
There’s also a great side romance between quirky secondary characters, witch Athena and sea captain Kallas, whose constant bickering masks an underlying attraction and simmering sexual tension that they fight like hell to ignore but eventually comes to a boil.
If you like romance with lots of action and adventure, humor, steamy love scenes, a smart, plucky heroine, and a to die for, scoundrel hero with a heart of gold, then don’t miss this highly enjoyable read! Big 5 stars!
