Recommendation of the Week: 06/27/10 - 07/04/10

'A Loving Scoundrel' 
by Johanna Lindsey

"When Danny, a young woman who grew up on the streets of London with no memory of her real family, is banished from her gang because she helped handsome rakehell Jeremy Malory steal back the jewels his friend lost in a card game, Danny demands that Jeremy give her a job. She is determined to become respectable in order to fulfill her dream of marrying and starting a family. Intrigued by her beauty and spunk, Jeremy hires Danny as his upstairs maid, although he wants her as his mistress.

Under the tutelage of Jeremy and his cousin Regina, Danny blossoms into a lady. Although she is drawn to Jeremy by passionate feelings she has never experienced before, she refuses to be anything more than a servant to him because she knows he is not the marrying kind. When Danny undergoes a Cinderella-like transformation and poses as Jeremy's new love in an attempt to help him avert a scandal, a few highly placed members of the ton remark on how familiar Danny looks. Now tongues are wagging, raising the question of her true identity, which threatens not only Danny's chances of capturing Jeremy's heart but her very life.

-I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this novel. It's definitely one of my favorites. It was so passionate and adventurous with just the right sprinkling of mortal peril. The characters (both primary and secondary) were so engaging and intriguing, the plot was one that kept me on my toes, and the love scenes were VERY steamy! Don't call yourself a romance fan until you've given 'A Loving Scoundrel' a read.

This is your Recommendation for the Week of June 27th, 2010 thru July 4th, 2010

Until Next Post<3...


  1. I found your blog and I love it! We share the same taste in books :) This was a great read and turned me on to Johanna Lindsey. In fact, while going through my numerous romance books, this is one that I decided was worth the shelf space for a re-read. Can't wait to see more from your blog :)

  2. You've made my day! I am glad you like the blog! It was started a few months ago, but even to this day, I still wake up each morning and can't believe the joy it brings me! The next few months will see some wonderful improvements and additions that will surly bring more of our mutually favorite content to the forefront, I hope you'll stick around to witness them!

    As for Johanna Lindsey, she is my God Mama of Historicals. I love all her work. My first book by her was 'A Rogue Of My Own' and I've been sold ever since. 'Loving A Scoundrel' is a great one too and definitely a re-read candidate in my eyes as well!

    Feel free to check the contact page of the blog, get my email address and shoot me a message whenever you want. I love chatting with historical lovers (one's with great tastes are a plus!). If you have suggestions or comments, I'd love to hear them. =D

    Warmest Wishes!
