Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

Book Description
They call him many names but Angelic isn’t one of them... Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the “Bane and Blight of the Ballisters”--and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He’s determined to continue doing what he does best--sin and sin again--and all that’s going swimmingly, thank you...until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.
She’s too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world...Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she’s going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him--and with him, her family and future--means taking on the devil himself, she won’t back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible, and the person who needs the most saving is--herself!

This is the first book that I have read by Loretta Chase. I picked this title mostly because of all the great reviews this book has received on any web site you check. This story has all my favorite themes, reformed bad boy, strong heroine and “have to get married”. The author just draws you into Dain and Jessica’s relationship and makes you fall in love with both of them. I love reformed heroes and the author makes you feel all the pain Dain felt during his childhood and why he grew into the man he is when he meets Jessica.

4.5 stars…..highly recommended
