Fresh Fiction
"The Scoundrel is witty, fun and just plain charming. Don't miss this truly wonderful love story by Ms. Plumley. Her stories never disappoint and The Scoundrel is no exception. I loved this story and you will too!"
Roundtable Romance Reviews
"Ms. Plumley has written a romance with endearing characters that are full of mischief, charm and humor!"
Romance Junkies
"What I loved most about The Scoundrel is that it completely and utterly entertained me. All the characters are unpredictable and charming, with fun peculiar behavior. Filled with laugh aloud scenarios and a tender love affair between best friends, The Scoundrel will remind you of your first kiss, plus melt your heart. Lisa Plumley's style is the cure all for a bad day and I dare you not to laugh, and maybe shed a tear as well."
Five Blue Ribbons Rating!
Romantic Times BOOKclub
"How does one spell romance? P-L-U-M-L-E-Y. Readers are in for a treat with her latest tale, a funny, lively, and often outrageous battle of wills that will keep readers riveted until the last page. Four stars!"
The Road to Romance
"The Scoundrel is a sweet love story-sometimes funny, sometimes serious, but always interesting. Author Lisa Plumley has created characters that sparkle with wit and realism. In The Scoundrel, Lisa Plumley has crafted a light-hearted tale sure to amuse and entertain even the pickiest of romance readers."
Bookloons
"Plumley pens another fine story here, one that's filled with wonderful characters, great atmosphere and smart and often witty dialogue. The author's distinctive voice and stellar writing adds that much more panache to this lively historical."
Romance Reader
"With just the right mix of down home humor, a bit of drama and a smackle of good old-fashioned tear jerking, Lisa Plumley comes up with a winner with her latest historical release, The Scoundrel. Ms. Plumley has such a great sense of timing and way with dialogue; the sparring between Daniel and Sarah, as well as Sarah and her family-which includes her suffragette sister, Grace, whose own story I can't wait to see in print-was an absolute delight to observe!"

    Pretty Bad!

    If you can buy that a mother puts a tag on her son and ships him off to her brother without notifying him first. I guess you can buy this book. Anyway the poor child shows up and the brother takes him in. Having a greater sense of responsibility then his sister he(the scoundrel) marries the local school teacher to give the child a proper home. Of course he doesn't plan on sleeping with her because he respects her to much. This is a recurring theme in historical romances. Apparently there was a need for viagra even then. Anyway they finally get to the point where they have a Real marriage and the sister shows up for her son. She didn't mean to go away forever. She just took off for a few months on a honeymoon with her new husband. A note would have been nice. Anyway everyone is happy in the end---and I want my money back--this book stinks.

    amusing western romantic romp

    In 1882 in Morrow Creek, Arizona Territory blacksmith Daniel McCabe loves the women when a clerk interrupts his latest dalliance with saloon dancers insisting he has a delivery waiting for him at the train station that cannot wait until tomorrow. Fearing the clerk will have a heart attack Daniel accompanies him to retrieve the package though he is expecting nothing. His parcel turns out to be a four foot boy who recognizes his face from a picture his mom showed him. His nephew Eli has arrived from the east. --- Two months later, Daniel decides he needs a wife to raise his always in trouble nephew. He selects his friend capable spinster schoolteacher Sarah Crabtree who he knows is an expert when it comes to preadolescent children. He offers her a marriage of convenience, which she accepts, but hides her true agenda to turn their relationship into a loving family of three and hopefully more though that might mean causing problems for Daniel that will make Eli¿s look boyish in comparison. --- The sequel to THE MATCHMAKER, THE SCOUNDREL is an amusing western romantic romp that will keep the audience laughing with the antics that Sarah and to a degree Eli pull on hapless Daniel, who will not know what hit him as love for his woman blindsides him. The eccentric support cast enhance the fine historical with their escapades especially his nephew and her students in particular nine years old spelling bee whiz Emily. Sub-genre fans will believe that Lisa Plumley¿s fine tale is much more than OK. --- Harriet Klausner
