At her step-mother’s command, Isabelle – and her irrepressible step-sister Lily – are leaving the pleasantries of the English countryside behind them, and heading straight to the bustling heart of a London season. Isabelle couldn’t care less about fashionable society, and is even less interested in the name on the lips of every ballroom gossip – Lord Constantine Highborough, reputedly a scoundrel of the

    I really liked this book. Isabelle and Constantine were such fun to read about. Isabelle feels like she is on the shelf at 26, when her stepmother, Meredith, convinces her to go to London after they mourn her father. Meredith at only 30 is a very young widow and has decided that she wants to have a fling with Constantine while in London because she reads so much about him in the scandal sheets.
    At one of their first ball’s Constantine sees Isabelle, is immediately entranced, and sends a footman to find her and put his name on her dance card. Footman makes a mistake and thinks Constantine wants to dance with Meredith, but Constantine meets Isabelle later in the library and does his best to kiss her. Constantine wants to be with Isabelle more and more and Meredith is still working to get Constantine to notice her, which he isn’t at all interested.
    The situation ends up coming between Isabelle and Meredith and Constantine waylays Isabelle on her way back to the country and asks her to spend two days with him. Lovely story about a scoundrel and a girl who thinks she isn’t good enough for him falling in love with each other. Love scenes took a while in coming, but they were at the right time and they were really good. I would like to read more by this author, really good story!
    I received this complimentary copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    From the first page, this book drew me in. By chapter 5 I was wanting to scan ahead to see what happened. Isabelle was forced to leave her beloved home to go to London with her stepmother. Two years before, her father had past away, and Meredith, Isabelle’s step-mother was ready to go back into society. Meredith rents a house across the street from London’s most reputed scoundrel, Lord Constantine Highborough. Her intention was to lure Lord Highborough into an affair. As fate would intervene, Lord Highborough first sights Isabelle across the ballroom and falls hard. As he is use to having women fall and his feet and do all manner of things to get his attention, Isabelle is too realistic for that. Give her a garden, and that is all she wants. After an unexpected meeting in the park, the two are drawn to each other. Isabelle knows he’s a scoundrel of the worst kind, plus Meredith has her eyes on him, yet she wants him. Being realistic, she knows he’s not for her. Lord Highborough has other ideas. From here the story is cute and cunning. Lord Highborough is chasing her, trying to convince her he wants her, and Isabelle not trusting him, or herself when she is with him. TO LOVE A WICKED SCOUNDREL is a romantic, charming story. It will have you rooting for the couple to work through all the rules of London’s ton. I enjoyed Anabelle Bryant’s ability to write a story that was filled with humor, romance, wooing and secret meetings. Wonderful book. Would of gave it more stars if I could.

    I was given a book from NetGalley to review honestly.

    So much more than a traditional historical! The clever conversation and interwoven plot and subplot keep the pages turning while this romance unfolds. Constantine is instantly likeable and Isabelle, no matter her self-doubt, is strong. She remains true to her heart and to herself. I think what I liked best is there is no ridiculous plot or “coincidence”. The novel is real, with heartfelt emotion and enjoyable characters. It was a great read. I hope this new author will have another release in the near future.
