Historical Fiction

LoveReading View on A Loving Scoundrel

A Regency romance from the present queen of the genre.

A Loving Scoundrel Synopsis

A passionate new Regency romance featuring the ever-popular Malory family.

Danny has grown up on the streets of London as a pickpocket, remembering nothing of her past. One night, she is apprehended by the handsome young aristocrat she is attempting to rob. Jeremy Malory is strangely drawn towards this waif and persuades her to help him steal back some jewels his friend lost in a card game. Danny demands that Jeremy takes her in, and he hires her as his maidservant – although he wants her as his mistress.

Danny blossoms into a lady under Jeremyâs guidance, but she refuses his amorous attentions because she knows he will never marry her. But as the attraction between the two of them intensifies, they embark upon a passionate battle of wills, and in a Cinderella-like transformation, Danny becomes a charming beauty, appearing at a society ball where her appearance raises questions about her true identity – questions which threaten not only her chances of capturing Jeremyâs heart, but her very life…
