First half was great, second half dragged on. I wish the tension of them not knowing why the other hadn't showed up was dragged out longer. ( )

I received an eARC at no cost from the author, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you.


Review posted at my blog, Romancing Romances

I’m having a hard time rating this book.

I love Lorraine Heath, and the fact that she likes to talk about difficult issues in her books. But in this one, I think something was…maybe holding her back? I don’t know, I feel like it had something missing.

This is a lovers-reunited/second-chance lovers story. I have to admit, I didn’t feel very connected to the characters. I liked the young version, I did not, however, enjoy their transition. And, again, I think this has to do with the way the author dealt with their problems.

It’s hard to do a review without talking about something that does not show up in the synopsis, and therefore it is a spoiler, but that is the base of your concerns with the book.

Finn had a difficult life, and Lavinia was sheltered, as any nobility-born lady. But as they spend their together, she gets to know a different world. And then something happens that separates them. When they meet again, they are different people, but still harbour some of the same feelings they had years before.

I did not like Lavinia – I’m sorry, she went through a lot, I know, but I just couldn’t connect with her. Finn, on the other hand, was much easier to like and understand. I only liked Lavinia when she was young, and when she makes a right decision at the end of the book. I would, however, like to point out, she is doing her best to help those who need it, and I value that trait, no doubt.

I really liked Finn’s family, and I look forward to reading more their stories, even if this wasn’t my favourite book written by Lorraine Heath. ( )

Lorriane Heath does an amazing job with this story. There is nothing sadder than young lovers being split apart and thinking their partner had abandoned them. Only one thing is worse, to give birth to a child of the man you loved and having it ripped from you arms within minutes of its birth.
When Finn and Vivi meet again years later they are both hurt and damaged individuals. They must learn to trust again and to be opened to the love they once had and lost.
Parts of this book will bring tears to your eyes but it will only make the Happily Ever After all the more rewarding. ( )

Lorraine Heath is such a memorable author and definitely an auto buy for me which is why when I saw this audio available in my library I was super excited because I excpected to have to buy this but I was surprised that I didn’t need to. I was a bit nervous because even though I liked book two I didn’t love it like I did book one but I can say that this book really worked for me despite the flashbacks. I know many love flashbacks, but I am not a big fan of them. But thankfully these flashbacks only happen in the first half of the story.

The scoundrel In Her Bed is book three of the Sins For All Seasons series. And this is Finn’s book, one of the Trewlove siblings. Finn was brought to his ‘mother’ as a son of a Aristocrat and left on a baby farm and thankfully unlike many unfortunate children, he was raised by a loving woman and his adopted family is everything to him. Finn is the more compassionate and kind of the siblings. But he fell in love with a young woman but then believed that she betrayed him and spent years in prison. And now its been seven years and he finds her in the dangerous streets of London and the love of his life has changed and he wonders what caused her to harden and change from the girl he once knew and loved.

Lady Lavinia Kent is the daughter of an Earl, and when she is fifteen, she meets a young man, Finn, who is kind and generous and they became fast friends when he saved her horse from being killed. But as her season approached their friendship turned into something stronger and they fell in love and she was willing to brave scandal and ruin to be with Finn. But when he didnt show up for their rendezvous she felt he was using her to get in her bed. And during their separation, she lost something precious and now she is living in a foundling home with a group of nuns, trying to save children sent to baby farmers when she bumps into Finn and sparks and tension fly between the two. And now she doesn’t know why Finn is back in her life but when the truth between them is truly revealed and they discover they were innocent pawns in Lavinia’s parents game, they begin to reconnect and their relationship thrives in a way it didn’t before and with them being more mature and settled in themselves, they find a love and a family worth fighting for…

The Scoundrel In Her Bed was such a beautifully crafted story that stole my heart and like I expected, this book was such an emotional one. Lorraine Heath really knows how to tear through my emotions and in this book I definitely was in tears because the emotino that she displays in this book is so vibrant and speaks to the heart of its readers. There was something so unique about this second chance romance that I quickly fell in love with. Finn is one of my favorites of the Trewlove siblings, and we see what a solid hero he is. And even though he is harder because of being sent to prison, he is stronger and quite the scoundrel. And boy some of his bantering with Livinia, was so scandalous and sexy and his character had me laughing all the way through the story. Now Lavinia, I really liked her for the most part, we do find out what she has been hiding from Finn. Man, what her parents do to her is so heartbreaking, but we see such a strong and courageous woman she is and I just admired her so much. She is not perfect, but she is making an effort to help innocents in need and find her own path in life that is seperate from her family who have hurt her more than anything.

The romance that builds between these two is so riveting and I loved how they reconnect, in the dark streets of London. The setting of their rediscovery of each other is the London Underground and I really love that we get away from the balls and all the dukes and I found it so refreshing in many ways. Finn and Lavinia really are perfect for each other, but Finn really has to work to get back into Lavinia’s heart though, but he is stubborn and tenacious and willing to fight for her and I just love that in a hero. And as a plus there are some pretty steamy sexy times between these two that I really loved seeing. Lorraine Heath really knows her way into building sizzling chemistry that is sensual and intimate.

Overall I found The Scoundrel In Her Bed to be a story of redemption, emotional growth and a romance that electrifies the reader in a fundamental way to give you a memorable experience to never forget! OUTSTANDING! ( )

I totally surrendered to this book from the first word on the first page and still remain its prisoner days after the last page. The Prologue alone will rip your heart from your chest and run it through a shredder. It was a touching, passionate and compassionate story and a great addition to the Sins For All Seasons series. It deals with some dark subject matter but handles it in such a way that you are left feeling good in the end. After all of that, you must be wondering why I didn’t give it five stars. The answer to that is that I would have given it five stars, but I really don’t like flashbacks as a way of telling the story and the first 45% of the book had a current time chapter, then a flashback chapter or two, then a current time, etc. I was very tempted to flip through and read all of the flashback chapters and then go back and read all of the ‘current time’ chapters, but I didn’t.

Each book in this outstanding series has a different hero and heroine, but, to me, the real hero for all of the books is Ettie Trewlove. No matter how many books you read over your lifetime, you’ll never find a more loving, compassionate and giving person than Ettie. She was widowed young and lost her own children to disease. In order to support herself, she took in the unwanted by-blows of rich aristocrats. They would drop them on her doorstep with a one-time payment of maybe £15. Most of the people who dropped off these children expected them to be allowed to die and they certainly never wanted to hear from them again. Ettie, however, was an exception. She took those children in and loved them, taught them, and made a family of them – all SIX of them! So! Hats off to Ettie, the true hero.

Finn Trewlove is basically the same age as his ‘siblings’, but to me, he seemed much younger, more impulsive, and more naïve. To me, that explains why Finn, at twenty-one, would be so instantly attracted to a fifteen-year-old girl. Finn is also the soft-hearted, loving one of the siblings. I absolutely LOVED Finn and my heart hurt for him as I gradually learned all of the things that had happened to him.

Lady Lavinia Kent’s parents are the parents from hell – literally. No matter how pacifist you might be, you’ll want to take her parents – especially her mother – and devise a horrible torture for them. You absolutely will not believe some of the things they do to their own daughter! That said, Lavinia is still spoiled, and totally convinced that she is always right. That continues to come through even toward the end of the book. I don’t think I really liked Lavinia as much as I felt compassionate and sorry for all that happened to her.

Lavinia has been promised to the Duke of Thornly (the hero in the last book) her entire life and while he is a nice man, she has no real interest in him. They spend very little time together and when they do, they don’t really get to know each other. He is eleven years her senior but is still not ready to marry. But, well, if she’s to marry him, she’d at least like a little attention from him – darn it! So, in a fit of pique, when she, her brother and Thornly were out riding she thought to get his attention by spurring her horse, Sophie, and ‘seemingly’ be on a runaway horse. Just right for rescue and attention. However, the mare didn’t bolt, she reared up and Lavinia hit the ground and broke her arm. Lavinia’s father was livid and ordered that the slaughterer be sent for immediately to put Sophie down.

Slaughterers were a real profession in Regency London and they really were a necessity. There were tens of thousands of horses in London and there had to be a way to deal with the aging, diseased, etc. animals. That was the job of the slaughterer – they picked up the animal, put it to death and then dealt with what needed to be one with the remains. Not a pretty job, but a necessary one.

Finn Trewlove was a slaughterer. He didn’t enjoy putting down the magnificent animals, but he did take pride in seeing that they were comfortable, calm and not panicked when it happened. He loved horses and dreamed of one day having a horse farm.

Finn was dispatched to Lavinia’s home to pick up Sophie. Lavinia was wailing and begged and begged and begged him not to destroy her beloved Sophie. She even struck Finn when he told her that he had no choice because if he didn’t his boss would lose his license. It really troubled Finn – Lavinia was a lovely girl and the horse was beautiful and not sick or aging. However, he had to take her.

Finn and Lavinia’s tale really begins when Finn (a former thief), sneaks into Lavinia’s room and then takes her to see Sophie. Yes, he couldn’t do it – he couldn’t destroy Sophie. Lavinia (Vivi) was delighted and they made plans for her to sneak out and he’d take her to see Sophie once per week.

Their tale is one filled with sweet romance, a love for the ages, tragedy, betrayal, separation, and reconnection. Once you start reading, you won’t want to put the book down.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. ( )
