I enjoyed reading Scoundrel For Hire. There was an interesting plot in this book that I had never encountered before. I would read more from this author.

Handsome Hero plus Feisty Damsel equals one fun afternoon read!

This is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon at the beach or on the deck. Enough plot twists and turns to keep it interesting, without requiring deep thought to follow the action. Characters with a sense of humor accent the romance. I highly recommend this book for a ...
This is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon at the beach or on the deck. Enough plot twists and turns to keep it interesting, without requiring deep thought to follow the action. Characters with a sense of humor accent the romance. I highly recommend this book for a light read. And then loan it to a friend. She will thank you.

    Not good

    Very dry and uninteresting. Resorted to skimming pages just to get thru. As for plot spoilers, i dont like them either. They give away too much. As for not reading them as one rude poster said, i dont but when you have to scroll down thru miles of them, its hard not to see something that spoils the story, so not reading them doesnt really solve the problem now, does it? The only solution is to stop them from posting and giving away the entire story.

    Good story plot

    Barf! The graphic sex was boring and not necessary. Don't know how many pages i had to skip to get thru the trash.

    It is rare

    That I don't finish a book. While this one had potential, the characters aren't that likable and the language seems choppy and stilted. I just can't make myself keep going

    Could not read past page 30. Boring!

    Could not get interested in the story nor did I get invested in the charactors. SQ

    Whats with the X-Rated books?

    Perhaps BN should have more non-mushy books which do not have romance.
