“The romance is sweet and addictive in this book”
~ Under the Covers
We are back with the Carlisle siblings and this time is Quinton’s turn to find love. When I read the first book in this series (and my first by this author) I was really surprised about how much I liked it and I couldn’t wait to see how this one would compare. This was a great follow up and one I enjoyed immensely.
WHEN THE SCOUNDREL SINS has all the endearing qualities of a best friends to lovers story. Annabelle Green has known Quinton for many years, he was even her first kiss. But they’ve also had a relationship where they were more like bickering siblings than love interest. That ease they have around each other, to tease each other, was a fun dynamic to see in this book and it made this such a breeze to read. They have great chemistry and balance together!
Annabelle is set to inherit the home she’s always known as hers, but for that she must marry before her twenty-fifth birthday. Quinton is there to vet possible suitors before departing for a life he’s decided for himself in America. He has his own self doubts about his future and his worth to deal with and I think that rounded out his character rather well. There’s more to him than being a womanizer and a troublemaker.
The romance is sweet and addictive in this book. I just couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait for what Ms. Harrington will have in store for us next. If you like your historical romance on the light, fluffy and fun side but with well crafted stories and characters then give this series a try.
