I thought the book was okay but not more. The heroine has some self esteem problems due to a broken engagement and certain comments made by her mother, who to me came across as bi-polar. So when the hero starts pursuing her, she does not believe him or trust him. And she is right at first. The hero appears to be the third son of a duke (we get to meet one older brother, a younger sister and we hear about 2 more younger sisters). He is carefree, just having inherited an estate and a town house, presumably with appropriate funds from his god father. He sees no need to tie himself down and does what most younger sons can't really afford, living the high life. The heroine is considered off limits due to her being the sister of (while not a close) school chum and a good friend of his highly pregnant sister-in-law. He enlists the help of the younger sister, we meet and their interactions are typical of siblings. The hero is quite believable, the heroine could not make up her mind...
This very traditional Regency is forty-seven chapters. I did not realize that the book's outlandish length until the fifth chapter. I realized the main characters had traveled to three houses but the main plot (i.e. romance) was barely moving. I saw the meter at 11% and chose not read further.
Let me start by saying I love this book. The two main characters are a fun combination that you know is going to be good. Come on when you you start the book you first meet Alana Hillary climbing out of a library window from the second floor trying to escape some Lord and Andrew Forest just happens to be there to help her.
All scoundrels have there code of honor of staying away from innocent girls, however when it comes to the right girl they tend throwout there code of honor, which tends be a little shake at times. Drew happens to find that in Lana. A true scoundrel to the core, especially when you enlist the help of a younger sister to capture the girl you want.
While reading this book I couldn't put it down. I mean it was fantastically well written. So, if you are looking for a new scoundrel to love you might want to pick up Miss Hillary Schools a Scoundrel, and fall in love with Drew and Lana's story.
