Lady Ophelia Darby exists in two worlds. In one, she is the impudent, willful daughter of a powerful marquess and darling of the ton. In the other, she moves through the underworld’s shadows as songstress Lady Starlight, protected only by the notoriously wealthy scoundrel Devlin Byrne. But when she stumbles upon her beloved father’s darkest secrets, the line between her two worlds quickly blurs. Now she needs the help of the one man a lady should never trust.
Devlin Byrne stands on the edge of London society, knowing he will never be accepted. No one else knows that his obscene wealth and ruthlessness aren’t without purpose. Or that his purpose has golden-brown eyes that shimmer with mischief, the palest of skin, and a lush mouth that beckons to be kissed, and deeply. But having Ophelia is only the beginning of Devlin’s plans.
It’s undeniable that Devlin Byrne is a dangerous temptation—but just as Ophelia begins to trust him, maybe even fall for him, she discovers she’s not the only one with secrets. And his would lead her down more than just the path of scandal…
Sweet, enticing, and adventurous!
A Scoundrel of Her Own is set in London during the early eighteenth century and features the spirited, independent Lady Ophelia Darby who, after accidentally reuniting with the poor boy, now successful men who once saved her life, the devilishly handsome Devlin Byrne, finds herself inadvertently falling once again for his hidden charms and tender heart regardless that society dictates he’s beneath her.
The prose is alluring and sharp. The characters are feisty, passionate, and endearing. And the plot is a delightfully scandalous blend of familial drama, regency traditions, friendship, desire, yearning, gossip, danger, tricky situations, societal expectations, and titillating romance.
Overall, A Scoundrel of Her Own is a steamy, compelling, highly amusing tale that I thoroughly enjoyed. It is the third title in the Sinful Wallflowers series by Reid that, in my opinion, keeps getting better and better.
