    A WONDERFUL,DELIGHTFUL HISTORICAL ROMANCE!SCOUNDREL IN MY DREAMS BY CELESTE BRADLEY

    SCOUNDREL IN MY DREAMS by Celeste Bradley is a wonderful historical romance set in 19Th century England. It is the third and final book in The Runaway Brides trilogy, but can be read as a stand alone.It is well written with depth,details,twists and turns. The first in the series was Devil in My Bed and the second is Rogue in My Arms. It has passion,joy, romance,suspense, a lot of laughing,some crying, adventure, secrets, non stop action,and will capture your heart, especially little three year old Melody. She is the topic of this series. She cute, sassy, precocious, adorable, and you can't help but fall in love with her. In the meantime, three men think they may be her father. She was left on the doorstep of their club with only a note proclaiming " her father is a member of Brown's". Two of the men now know, she is not theirs. Everyone who meets young Melody, falls in love with her. When Jack, our hero,sees her he knows she is his. He remembers her mother coming to his room one dark night three years ago...he only remembers the wrong girl.When he goes to who he thought her mother was she denied it, and laughs at him. Our heroine, Laurel, was only seventeen at the time of the seduction, has loved Jack from afar forever,thinks her child died at birth, lives a secluded life with her sister.When Jack arrives at her widowed sister's house, Laurel sees little Melody and know she is her child.She follows Jack to the gentleman's club, confronts him,but Jack will not give up his new found child. So he does the only thing he can and kidnaps Laurel, or rather holds her captive until she surrenders to him.Jack has loved Laurel for years, but thought she was forbidden to him.This is a wonderful story of love,surrender, sacrifice,the coming together of a family, putting the past aside in order to achieve a wonderful life.I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy laughter, sadness, overcoming past tragedy and a story that will truly steal your heart. This book was received for review from the publisher and details can be found at St. Martin's Paperbacks and My Book Addiction and More.

    more from this reviewer

    an intriguing historical

    At the Brown's Club for Distinguished Gentlemen, Lord John Redgrave recognizes the abandoned little girl Melody as his offspring. He assumes the mother is Amaryllis Clark who he was courting before he went off to war. She came to his room, had sex, and the next day rejected his proposal.

    Jack confronts Amy only to learn that wonderful night was with her then seventeen year old sister Laurel. As he went off to fight, Laurel was ruined. Now she wants Melody back but nothing to do with Jack. However, she does not know Jack as he wants his daughter and the woman he cherishes in his life permanently.

    The third Runaway Brides Regency romance (see Rogue In My Arms and Devil in My Bed) is an intriguing historical because of Jack who is so atypical of the sub-genre; he brings a sort of boorish but fresh personality to the mix as he does not intend to be crude or insensitive he just is. Fans will enjoy his efforts to win Laurel's head as he owns her heart and dreams, but she has doubts about her scoundrel being there for her and precocious (perhaps too cute) Melody.

    Fantastic finale!

    This final book in the Runaway Brides series is wonderful. In fact the whole series is great. If there is any negative comments it's that the series is over. I can't wait for the authors next title.
