it half a dozen ways. It works, so we read it. This book has the same formula. Phillipa has an iron will. She feels that Sevrin is hers. He
would rather she gave up on him. The back story on Sevrin's scandal was sad to read. No one wants to hear about the tragedy someone
suffered. I felt like Some of Sevrin's guilt was misplaced but it made 100% sense. In his situation, I would have reacted the same way.
Sevrin wins points for how hard he fights to keep Phillipa from making a mistake in picking him. Like I said, least scoundrel like

TO SEDUCE A SCOUNDREL by Darcy Burke is another interesting Rege
TO SEDUCE A SCOUNDREL by Darcy Burke is another interesting Regency Historical Romance. #3 in the "Secrets and Scandals" series, again this one can be read as a stand alone. Although, I gotta say I read these backwards. I read "Never Love a Scoundrel" first, therefore know how "To Seduce a Scoundrel" turns out. With this said, I enjoyed reading "To Seduce a Scoundrel" a lot. The characters are engaging, the storyline intriguing,and the passion hot. Filled with secrets,grief,passion,and scandal. Join Lord Ambrose Sevrin, the scoundrel who needs a seduction and debutante Lady Philippa Latham,who is trying to avoid a scandal and looking for a husband. But atlas, things does not always work out like you plan. A great read! Well written! Ms. Burke is a wonderful storyteller of Regency romance. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Romance novels tend to pretty much be all the same, so I love when I'm pleasantly surprised by one...and I was very pleasantly surprised by "To Seduce a Scoundrel." The plot was good, the characters were both strong and interesting, and the overall story was just plain enjoyable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Like with most romance novels, there's a "big thing" that interferes with the hero and heroin being together. Most of the time, that "big thing" is really annoying and stupid, and you keep asking yourself why they're so stupid. Not so in this case. I think the author has set that "big thing" to be something that makes complete sense. The reader identifies with the pain of the hero and "gets" why that thing is a barrier to their long-term happiness.
Good story. One I'd recommend to others who enjoy this genre.
