THE SCOUNDREL TAKES A BRIDE
Genre: Historical Romance, England
With her flawless writing and complex characters Sloane, in the fifth of her Regency Rogues series, draws the reader into this deeply touching and sexually charged romance that is sure to warm the heart and shows how the power of love can overcome any adversity.
After years, the case of her mother’s unsolved murder has been reopened, and Lady Sophia plans to hunt down the murderer. She turns to the one person who can help: her childhood companion, Nicholas Bourne, who is newly returned to England after time spent in India. As children, they were always at odds with one another and it seems that as adults they still are. Underneath Nicholas’ calm demeanor there lies an aura of danger, and Sophia can’t ignore the sexual pull between them. Unbeknownst to Sophia, Nicholas has been in love with her for years, but he kept it to himself because she was promised to his brother, Langdon. Their journey into the criminal mind will take them into London’s underworld, but there is another journey they will take, one filled with a passion and a love that cannot be denied. (BALLANTINE, Jan., 336 pp., $7.99)
