Lord of Scoundrels

Lord of Scoundrels - Loretta Chase I liked this one although I thought the exposition at times muddled and difficult to follow. The highly entertaining verbal sparring of the characters and overall humorous aspects of the story more than made up for it, though. I must say that Chase is a brave, brave author for in this novel she has the gumption to create a truly villanous hero, a physically unattractive ugly hero at that. The reader gets the distinct pleasure of reading his struggle to develop, to overcome his past and the deep wounds that haunt him and have made him who he is. Chase matches him with the most perfect heroine- beautiful, witty, fearless and very, very intelligent. Too many romance novelists create "fearless" and "fiery" heroes who come across as irrational, stomping, and whiny. Jess is the first one of these I'v come across who is intelligent, clever, and a ball buster, yet has a depth, understanding, and heart to her that allows her to help bring about Dain's redemption from his bitter past. I didn't want this one to end....
