Review: how to Seduce a Scoundrel by Vicky Dreiling

When Lady Julianne Gatewick realizes the rake of her dreams thinks of her as practically his sister, she decides it's time to get even. The charming Marc Darcett, Earl of Hawkfield, is every lady's fantasy, but he's determined to evade virgins and their matrimonial traps - especially his best friend's sister.

Hawk reluctantly agrees to be Julianne's guardian for the season, but he's having trouble resisting his gorgeous ward. Worse still, she's taunting him by flirting with every scoundrel in London - and he's sworn to protect her! Certain she's learned her tricks from the authoress of that scandalous publication "The Secrets of Seduction", Hawk sets out to uncover the writer's identity. But he never expects to find the formerly angelic Julianne behind the mask - and between his sheets.

How to Seduce a Scoundrel is my first Vicky Dreiling read. After reading this novel I look forward to reading Vicky's other novel, "How to Marry a Duke".
Richmond, England – 1817

At first I wasn't sure what to think of Lady Julianne becuase she wore her heart on her sleve and seemed so naive. I thought she may seem boring, but shortly in I realized that wasn't the case. If anything, she was the oppisite of boring. She got into trouble more in one season with Marc then she had her whole life.
Marc was ofcourse a another male to add to my favorites. What is it with rakes that get us woman to swoon? Is it the temptation? Or is it because most rakes are devilishly handsome and charming? I'm glad this rake was tamable, because he was worth the fight.

I like how rules for "A Lady’s Secret of Seduction" and "A Scoundrel’s Code of Conduct" are quoted at the beginning of each chapter. You get a feel for what's to come in each chapter and you also get a peak into the scandalas novel being produced in the novel.

"How to Seduce a Scoundrel" was a fast paced, easy to read novel. The characters were very likeable. I espeically liked Hawk's aunt Hester. She kept eveyone on their toes. *laughs*

I highly recommend this to all historical and regency romance lovers. I look forward to more from Mrs Dreiling.

My rating:
This book is one you don`t want to miss!
