When the Scoundrel Sins - Anna Harrington

Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she's ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . . 

Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He'll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can't control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire. 

My thoughts:
Annabelle is a spinster, oh you know she is already 25! Ready for the grave really. Her reputation is also on ruins after a little kiss in the gardens at 18. But who needs men! She is busy taking care of the estate she will inherit, reading her books and taking care of the people living there. A good honest woman. But there are always buts, if she does not marry before 25 she will loose the estate. Well that sucks. Better find a husband, but who wants a hubbie who can bully, take over her estate, even sell it. She would still loose everything.

Then we have Quinn, sent after by his aunt to help weed out the rotten suitors. He is a scoundrel, I mean the series title says it all, oh and the title of this one. He was also the one who ruined her at 18. Why the family never set it right I do not know, maybe they thought they would resent each other. But he is a good guy, just a scoundrel set for America.

Oh and they fancy each other pants off (since she wear pants in the fields). But the road there is long. He wants to start a new life on his terms in America. She needs to stay here and save Glenarvon. So in the beginning of the book I want to hit him over the head, and then at the end of the book I really truly want to hit her over the head with a book. Stupid girl!

Conclusion:
But it was a fun romance, and there is a baddie too. Let's just hit him over the head too, nah, we can hit him somewhere lower.

  2. hehe I am only 30 and still single, and sometimes I feel like I am on the shelf. But even when I was 25 I felt like that, but I grew up in Utah and everyone is married by 21 LOL I could totally relate with the heroine.

    1. 21! That is crazy young. No one would bat an eye here 21 or 25 singles, or 30. But your older relatives will ask...a lot

  15. This sounds like a good story. I always love it how women are spinsters if they aren't married as teenagers in these books.
