Meet the Author

Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the United Kingdom allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her Trouble.

When she's not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and, most of all, long lunches with friends. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

    Thought it would be a full book, but is just an intro

    I have enjoyed the rest of the books in the series and this should be good too, but nowhere did it say when I bought it that it was not a full book or even a complete story. Very disappointed I paid for this.

    Incomplete?

    This is a prequel advertised as a complete book. The problem is the deception with the advertising. We are led to believe this is a complete story not a teaser. This is no more than an incomplete sample that should have been free. Due to this devious attempt to garner money, I will remove this author from my reading list.

    Misleading sale

    I am extremly unhappy with this purchase. The was only the first 6 chapters of a book and not even ine with the same title. Nor did the excerpt provide a meaningful self contiained work that could stand alone when seperated from the full book. I feel like i wad charged for what would otherwise have been the free sample. I really want my money back.

    I purchased this book via my Nook. At no time did I see anything

    I purchased this book via my Nook. At no time did I see anything to indicate that this was not an entire book. Obviously this has happened to many other people. This is a sham and I want my money back. Shame on you Barnes and Nobel. If you had honestly given this portion of the book away free I would have gladly purchased this book in full. You will loose customers quickly if you rip us off a lousy dollar at a time! Any 3 & 5 star ratings for this book are obvious plants.

    Bummer... :(

    ABOUT THE BOOK:
    The Earl of Bellingham is nothing is not a creature of habit: money, meals, and mistresses must be strictly managed if a man is to have a moment's peace. It's a system that works splendidly for him--until now. With his oldest and dearest friends succumbing, one by one, to wedded bliss, Bell is now restless and a trifle lonely. Enter the Sinful Scoundrels--Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore--who drag him back into society and draw his rakish eye to the ton's new beautiful young widow. Bell isn't after a wife, but a challenge. And Laura Davenport should fit the bill quite nicely...

    REVIEW:
    Oh bummer. I was enjoying this piece so much when all of a sudden it stopped. This isn’t a novella, it’s not even a short story, it’s pretty much a prelude to a different book all together. I was a bit disappointed when this happened as I genuinely dedicate myself to the story and found it cut off so quick.

    Outside of that, the character development was nice. I do like the buildup Ms. Dreiling does with everyone and found the secondary characters lively. I see how she could potentially wrap everyone together in a potential series. It was nicely done.

    What I didn’t like was at times, the background and inner thoughts seemed to go on for pages and it became where I was skimming the story. I realized what I was doing, stopped, and went back to read it again. This piece could have really just been included in a novel done very well. Instead, it leaves a reader feel let down and jested. Again, bummer.

    Three out of five stars due to the abrupt ending but I do hope to read the finishing story.

    Do not buy

    This is not a complete or even semicomplete book. It is a preview, and not worth paying for.

    Length

    People keep saying they feel ripped off and that there was no warning about this books short length. It says right on it that it is only 29000 words. If you failed to read that it is your own fault.

    Laura Davenport, Lady Chesfield has come to London to visit with

    Laura Davenport, Lady Chesfield has come to London to visit with friends and to show her stepson some of the finer things in life. However, stepson, Justin, Viscount Chesfield, has other things in mind. As he's now a mature 14 (in his mind), he's ready to stretch his wings, challenge his boundaries and really try some of the finer things in life by causing havoc with his friends wherever they may go. Laura has her hands full but is determined to give him the best upbringing possible.

    Bell, really Andrew Carrington, the Earl of Bellingham is into rescuing. He's recently dismissed his Mistress from his home, rescuing his home from the horrible redecorating that's been imposed up on it and saving himself from the constant berating that the Mistress threw down upon him. He's also met two new friends after rescuing them from the dirty, smelly Thames River. Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore will make great companions since his two best friends have succumbed to the married life that Bell avoids.

    After catching young Justin hiding a flask and lying to his stepmother, Bell forces his way into Laura's parlor intending on letting her know what kind of troubles she has ahead. But are her troubles only with Justin?

    Vicky Dreiling brings us this prequel to introduce her new series: The Sinful Scoundrels. She's given us a taste of the witty, flavorful stories that she will be giving to her readers in the next three books. The prequel is like a wine tasting...a teaser to whet your appetite for more. This connoisseur is intrigued with this small taste and craving more. So will you after sampling A Season for Sin.

    A Season for Sin is a new novella release by Vicky Dreiling┬┐ It

    A Season for Sin is a new novella release by Vicky Dreiling… It is an outstanding read, and one of the best novellas I have ever read! Vicky Dreilings writing gets better and better!!! We first meet Bell (The Earl of Bellingham) in How to Ravish a Rake, the reader gets a glimpse of Bells past and unfortunate tragedy that happened to him at a young age. In a Season for Sin, Bell has to release his current mistress (who is slightly crazy) for a new one! He hears about a new Widow in town, Laura Davenport, Lady Chestfield and decides she might be the one for him… This story has many ranges of emotions, parts of it had me laughing, and other times I felt sadness for Bell. The most memorable scene is when Bell and Laura meet for the first time. In this scene, Vicky Dreiling constructs her words in a way that makes you feel as if you are in the room with them. Overall, I can only say good things about this novella. It does end abrupt; however, I feel Vicky Dreiling purposely did this to leave us wanting more. The next story is called What a Wicked Earl Wants and the first chapter is available at the end of A Season for Sin. I will eagerly wait for the next release in this series!

    Disappointed

    Disappointed really like this author. By the time this book is published (spring 2013) I will probably will not be interested in reading it anymore. Sorry but this is not the way to keep readers interested in anything you publish!! Rating is not for story but the way it was handled..

    Seriously!?

    So disappointed! The book was great....until it ended. I noted the word count and thought that it was a novella. Which I happily paid 99 cents for. Instead I got a preview of another book. Which also wouldn't be terrible, except the actual book isn't out! Ugh, what a disappointing waste.
