Rating: 5-stars


Scoundrel of My Heart by Lorraine Heath is the most enticing historical romance novel I have read. It’s super fun. A young woman is sold on never marrying a second son. Her reasons are personal. It won’t be until much later on before the hero finds out exactly why she said that. Despite needing to marry a titled first son, Kathryn and Griff find that they are more than just old friends. There’s an undeniable attraction waiting to burst into flames. Each moment alone, they find it harder to resist temptation. Especially, Griff. He wants Kathryn with a passion. But he knows she desires not to marry a second untitled son such as himself. He plays a part but the further I read, the more I learn that Griff if more than a playboy. He has dreams, works hard, and is just as compassionate and trustworthy as Kathryn. Kathryn finds Griff to be a mystery that she wants to unravel. Their journey is heated, intense, and heartfelt. I was in love! Lorraine Heath never disappoints me. Her books are so engaging, I know they will be beyond my expectations. This one was definitely worth reading! I highly recommend it to all romance fans like myself. Scoundrel of My Heart is a historical regency-era romance readers do not want to miss!
