Review: Virtuous Scoundrel (The Regency Romp Trilogy #2) by Maggie Fenton

Print Length: 290 pages
Publisher: Montlake Romance (October 6, 2015)

From Sebastian Sherbrook, a self-proclaimed scoundrel and the newly minted Marquess of Manwaring, returns to London after his estranged uncle dies, intent on reforming his rakish image once and for all. Yet through no fault of his own, he’s soon embroiled in the biggest scandal of the Season, and his secret plans to court the only woman he’s ever wanted are in shambles.

Lady Katherine Manwaring knows her poor opinion of her late husband’s nephew isn’t about to change, even if the Times has dubbed him “The Singlemost Beautiful Man In London.” When fate casts Sebastian upon her mercy, however, she learns two shocking truths: he may not be the scoundrel his reputation suggests, and he’s hopelessly in love…with her.

But an irate squire, an even more irate dog, several dawn appointments, meddling friends, and a touch of blackmail aren’t the only things that stand in the way of their happy ending. Can Katherine accept Sebastian’s love—and will he still want her if he learns her own dark secret?


My Rating: 5 stars out of 5
This is hands down one of the best regency romances that I have read this year! And although this is the second book in the series, I did not feel as though I missed anything, nor was I overly confused about events that had already taken place in the first story.

I have to admit though, that while all of the characters were well thought out, and even (mostly) endearing to a point, my favorite character would hands down have to be Penny - the irate dog with a "vicious soul".  

There are sexual scenes that occur outside of marriage, however I felt that these were tastefully done, and add to the story rather than take anything away from it. However, they are short and can be easily skipped if that isn't your cup of tea. 

Full of comedy, idiot dog-nappers, stubborn main characters and detailed story-lines, I would not only definitely recommend this story (and author) to those who enjoy a good regency romance, but I will certainly be reading more from her as well!
