Never Love a Scoundrel

Book 5: Secrets & Scandals

About the Book

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 inside and out, Jason can’t possibly hope to improve his standing within the ton…until he meets an alluring and persuasive young lady who offers to help him reclaim respectability. Tempted not by the possibility of a better reputation, but by the lure of seduction, he sees what he’s been missing—along with how much he stands to lose.

A beauty’s touch provokes his desire…

Lady Lydia Prewitt should be a perfect debutante, but her former life as a gossip has ensured a lonely path. Seizing an opportunity to reform the scandalous yet tantalizing Lord Lockwood, she glimpses a future she never dreamed of—if he’s willing to meet her halfway. But can she risk falling in love with a scoundrel if it means joining him in exile?
