Overview

Lacey Ashton returns home to face the ghosts she left behind, among them Vicar Gabriel Kendrick, who now despises her as much as he once loved her. Five years before, unmarried and forced to name the father of her expected child, Lacey named another, which broke Gabe's heart. He vowed never again to let passion rule him. After bearing a stillborn child, Lacey was sent away. Gabe later married Lacey's cousin, Clara, a widow home from Scotland, and became stepfather to Clara's daughter, Bridget. Now that Clara has passed, Lacey wants a hand in raising Bridget. Surely a joyful relative is better for a child than a righteous, brooding stepfather.

Lacey Ashton is a former Lady that is returning home to Arundel to help the love of her life Vicar Gabriel Kendrick raise his stepdaughter Bridget. Lacey faces many obstacles in returning home again. Lacey holds a secret from Gabriel but right now he's not listening though. AS Lacey helps Gabriel bond with his stepdaughter she struggles with wanting to claim Gabriel as her own. Can the past be bridged? Will Lacey share her secret? Your answers await you in Holy Scoundrel. This final book brings The Knave of Hearts Series to an end.  Ms. Blair doesn't disappoint reading her books. Her characters are bold, honest, complex, and fascinating. Her storytelling is truly something to experience. She's definitely on my must buy and read list.

Too predictable; bedroom scenes too lengthy (and too frequent)

Loved this book. Bad thing is, it's the last of the Scoundrel series. Wonderful characters and a story that tugs at your heart. Interaction between the childrenand sults is delightful. Scoundrel reunion was fun to read as well.

I have read all Scoundrels and all Rogues. Couldn't wait for this final of the series. Ok plot, but writing not up to par. Loved the other books. Disappointed with this one.
