Genre: Historical Romance
Calandra Locke, daughter of the steward of Scarborough Park, is glad to be home after six years away at school. She cant wait to see Sir Scarborough Westonshe is not the chubby young girl he knew.
Scarborough sees a slender young woman, though her tart tongue and uptilted chin are remembrances of the Calandra of old. He desires the new Calandra greatly, but like his father before him, he feels he cannot be faithful to one woman.
Madly in love with him, Calandra dreams of marriage. When her dream comes to a shattering end she leaves the only home shes ever known, taking with her the memory of their one afternoon of love.
When Scarborough discovers his deep love for Calandra, will it be too late for him to bring her back and fulfill his vow? With THE SCOUNDRELS VOW, Ms. Brownings debut novel gives the reader a most beguiling story and a classic Regency plotline. Yet, this reader found Scarboroughs frequent vacillation between cad and gentleman distracting. SENSUAL (Sep., 360 pp., $5.99)
