Never Love a Scoundrel by Darcy Burke

When the beast leaves his lair… Labeled a lunatic and a reprobate, Lord Jason Lockwood finds solace in debauchery outside the realm of Polite Society. Scarred both inside and out, Jason can’t possibly hope to regain a place within the ton…until he meets an alluring and persuasive young lady. When she offers to help him reclaim respectability, he’s tempted not by the possibility of a better reputation, but by the lure of seduction. With her by his side, he not only sees what he’s been missing, but also how much he stands to lose. A beauty’s touch provokes his desire…


Lady Lydia Prewitt is everything a debutante should be: beautiful, dowried, and in possession of a sterling reputation. But Lydia’s former life as a gossip has ensured a lonely path. When the opportunity to assist the scandalous yet seductive Lord Lockwood gain entry into London’s best ballrooms, she glimpses a chance for a future she never dreamed of—if he’s willing to meet her halfway. But how can she risk falling in love with a scoundrel if it means joining him in exile?


Oh, I love this book! Ms. Burke is a wonderful writer.  She had me hooked with all the plot twists.  I could not stop reading it to find out what would happen next.  My heart was breaking at how heartless Lydia’s Aunt Margret was. This is a must read book, I can’t wait for the next book to come out so I can find out Ethan’s story.



Jason has taken being shunned by the Ton by throwing vice parties.  He Meets Lydia when they were both going to call on Lady Aldridge.  Jason then showed up while Lydia was having Tea with Mrs. Lloyd-Jones.  He finds that he is fascinated with Lydia because his scar does not frighten her.  As the pair comes, closer, together Lydia is trying to help Jason return to polite society, they both realize that there are forces trying to draw them apart.  Will love conquer all in the end?
