Reader Review: LORD OF SCOUNDRELS is a fantastic read; passionate and sincere, with humor and sensuality. Chase creates characters who come alive and a pair of lovers I wanted to cheer for. I'm a sucker for heroes like Dain, a man with a wounded heart, and Jessica is my favorite kind of heroine, smart, tough, and caring.
They call him many names, but Angelic isn't one of them . . .
Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters"—and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best—sin and sin again—and all that's going swimmingly, thank you . . . until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.
She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world . . .
Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him—and with him, her family and future—means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible, and the person who needs the most saving is—herself!

Lord of Scoundrels
Paris -- March 1828
"No. It can't be," Sir Bertram Trent whispered, aghast. His round blue eyes bulging in horror, he pressed his forehead to the window overlooking the Rue de Provence.
"I believe it is, sir," said his manservant, Withers.Sir Bertram dragged his hand through his tousled brown curls. It was two o'clock in the afternoon and he'd only just changed out of his dressing gown. "Genevieve," he said hollowly. "Oh, Lord, it is her."
"It is your grandmother, Lady Pembury, beyond doubt-and your sister, Miss Jessica, with her." Withers suppressed a smile. He was suppressing a great deal at the moment. The mad urge to dance about the room, shouting hallelujah, for instance.
They were saved, he thought. With Miss Jessica here, matters would soon be put right. He had taken a great risk in writing to her, but it had to be done, for the good of the family.
Sir Bertram had fallen, among Evil Companions. The evilest of companions in all of Christendom, in Wither's opinion: a pack of wastrel degenerates led by that monster, the fourth Marquess of Dain.
But Miss Jessica would soon put a stop to it, the elderly manservant assured himself as he speedily knotted his master's neckcloth.
Sir Bertram's twenty-seven-year-old sister had inherited her widowed grandmother's alluring looks: the silken hair nearly blue-black in color, almond-shaped silver-grey eyes, alabaster complexion, and graceful figure-all of which, in Lady Pembury's case, had proved immune to the ravages of time.
More important, in the practical Withers' view, Miss Jessica had inherited her late father's brains, physical agility, and courage. She could r...

The story is sexy with the characters similar level of intelligence makes them fight and attracted to each other. The author are able to show almost real life character if the hero. the imperfection of his physical appearance. Sexy love scene and fun plots. I love the funny part of the heroine standing up for her virtue. Read it you wouldnt regret.

Reviewer: A reader from Atlanta, GA US
Vain and Jessica are two of the most bullheaded people I have ever read about and just about that much more made for each other. I still can't get over Jessica's fight at the climax of the story. I could not believe it. A woman brawling with a man. That scene made the story worthwhile.
