Katharine Ashe writes compelling stories with fascinating characters. She imbues her characters with depth and flaws that are believable, relatable and makes me wish I could meet this person in real life. Her stories are not in the ordinary way. Each of Katharine's books grabs me from the beginning and makes me stay up all night so I can see how the story unfolds. Katharine's characters are such that I am always curious about the rest of their lives, something I cannot say about all writers.
In The Scoundrel and I, Katharine tells us more about Captain Anthony Masinter, who we originally met in I Married the Duke, and later in Kisses, She Wrote. He is a decorated naval war hero, an honorable man from a minor noble family full of brilliant minds, mathematicians, scholars, and the like. But Tony has a secret. He has never really fit in with his family of brilliant minds. He has difficulty reading and writing, which we understand now to be the learning disabilities...
The Scoundrel and I captivated me from the first paragraph. Katharine Ashe's rich, descriptive writing style lends itself to this Cinderella-themed novel.
Katharine Ashe is well-known for creating complex, honorable heroes in her novels and pairing them with forthright, educated heroines. She blends humor and romance into each one of her stories. I was drawn to the character of Anthony Masinter as he was sincere in his motives to help Elle. Honor and duty are very important to this naval officer. Elle works at the print shop and proofreads the letters between Lady Justice and Peregrine. She believes that Anthony is a scoundrel but needs his help to keep her job. Elle cares for her ailing Grandmother and the scenes between these two characters are written from the heart.
There’s quite a bit of fun and great dialog between the characters during their journey. Anthony and his sister transform Elle from a shop girl to a princess. Loved the shout out to Lady...
The scoundrel and I
The first thing i thought when i saw the book was: what a gorgeous cover, a beautiful positioned couple, amazing dress, emotion and misschief. Then i started reading the cover and i was hooked. Very important: This is a novella that doesn't feel like a novella. Well developped characters, great prose that sucks you right into the story. It's a spin off of the Falcon club serie but you can read it seperately. I just loved it because it gives you a taste of the next novel about Peregrine and Lady Justice.
How the mighty have fallen ;-) What do we have in store for you: Anthony Masinter, a determined bachelor, a naval war hero with his imperfections whom only make him so much more and Gabrielle Woods, a young willful woman, a printer shop assistant, who mistrust men due to an youthful indiscretion. They meet under the worst circumstances. He offers her help which she first refuses and later has to accept. He proves to her...
