"4 1/2 stars! TOP PICK! Dreiling's first book in the Sinful Scoundrel's series is wonderful! Rife with the Regancy's penchant for gossip, scandal and matchmaking, WHAT A WICKED EARL WANTS is a delightful romance featuring a rakish hero, an innocent widow, corrupt villans and a secondray cast of characters who add dimension, wit and tenderness to the plot. Reasers will find this a real pleasure to savor." - RT Book Reviews WILL A RAKE'S WICKED WAYSAndrew Carrington, Earl of Bellingham, believes in being a gentleman, whether it's fishing a soggy stranger out of the Thames or assisting a fetching lady into his bed. If the stranger becomes a friend and the lady a mistress, all the better. He certainly welcomes the opportunity to help Laura Davenport, a dazzling young widow with a rebellious stepson. Her gratitude, he hopes, will take an amorous form. But from the moment he sets foot in her drawing room, he gets far more than he bargained for ...

Suddenly she, a vicar's daughter, is in the precarious position of resisting his tantalizing advances.

Huh. I enjoyed the other series I read by her, but this one fell flat. It was awkward and the dialogue wasn't quite there. The ending really bothered me too. It's like they had this great epiphany, but we weren't privy to any of it. He leaves to get a special license and we think he's doing it only ...
Laura Davenport, a widow, has been raising her step son on her own for the last four years. Now he is seventeen and wanting to live a life in London. So she reluctantly agrees, and they head to London. Only her son, is starting to act rebelliously, and deceiving her left and right. Then Andrew Carri...
Why I abandoned the book after 10%[even if I feel very guilty for it]:-the language is too melodramatic-calling the character, the male one, Bell is... never mind. Every time I read it I rolled my eyes(I don't care that it's a short form of his title)-nothing that I read that far made me want to con...
Hmmm. I'm trying to be fair, but this book was just not my cuppa. The hero, Bell, and the heroine, Laura, were jarring to me and even a little unlikeable. The story itself felt like a retread with names changed to protect the guilty. First, Bell seemed to be a "fake rake." I'm told he has a past ...
