THE SCOUNDREL’S DAUGHTER BY ANNE GRACIE
Barbara’s Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
This delightfully romantic and entertaining book has it ALL! Wonderful characters, wit, laugh-worthy humor, a despicable, shrewish harpy who definitely gets her comeuppance, TWO swoon-worthy romances, three adorable little girls, and it is all set a very realistic and well-described Regency London. I can hardly wait to see what the other books in the series bring.
. . . snip . . . I took out the middle because there are quite a lot of spoilers . . .
I absolutely adored these characters. I loved watching Alice loosen up and come to realize that Lord Tarrant wasn’t at all like her now deceased husband. Can she come to trust? Lucy and Gerald dance around each other – neither liking or trusting the other – yet they are strangely attracted. Can they overcome that distrust?
I hope you’ll love this book as much as I did. It has some of the best put-downs I’ve ever read. If you want to learn how to handle a verbal bully, just pay attention to Alice and Almeria. The girls are delightful and you’ll love getting to know them. I can hardly wait for the next book!
