The Scoundrel in Her Bed Sins for All Seasons #3They can’t deny the yearning and desire that still burns As they discover the truth behind the deceptions that tore them apart Finn and Lavinia must fight to reclaim what they’ve lost no matter how dangerous because love is worth the risk Not gonna lie I feel like this man's nipple is judging me I'm reading this book anyway ARC from EdelweissIt’s been a while since I’ve read a Lorraine Heath book but when I picked up The Scoundrel in Her Bed I was than ready And this did not disappoint Though this book is third in a series I was able to follow the story and secondary characters just fine I will say I loved Finn’s family and I desperately want to read every one of their stories I also want to know of Thornley who was Vivi’s betrothed until she left him at the altar No spoiler here this was in the blurb I have to say that this book got off to a shaky start for me The first third of the book went back and forth between past and present and the past was focused on too much I did get what the author was trying to do later on it was important to developing both characters particularly Finn and his being so much progressive than most people from that time period But I think this could have been done in a perfunctory way But once that was over and we were firmly planted in the present this book really took off for me I loved Vivi and Finn’s story I am such a sucker for a story spanning social classes and when you pair that with another trope I love second chance romance it’s like it was written just for me Finn and Vivi meet under less than stellar circumstances but Vivi really makes an impression on Finn and he finds he just can’t forget her But there are certain expectations for Vivi’s life that don’t include a commoner and circumstances beyond their control make sure they can’t be together But when fate steps in Finn and Vivi’s path cross years later and they’ve both changed I don’t know what it is but man there’s a certain something about a hero that makes something of himself just to spite the heroine who left him Finn always had ambition but his past with Vivi added fuel to that And Vivi her story was horrific; it was even worse than I could have imagined when I picked up this book I loved the way she took the events in her life and channeled it into doing something so worthwhile and important She definitely left an impression on Finn but he left an impression on her as well and where he felt spite she was determined I will say that once the truth came out fairly early on the story they moved past it uickly and forgiveness was instant I would have liked to have seen drama there and a bit of time to come to grips with things but it really was indicative of who Vivi and Finn were together This means that the pacing after this was a bit slow involving mostly inner angst but I live for angst so I loved it As much as I adored both of these characters I do feel as though there one time when Finn’s expectations of Vivi were too much I won’t spoil it I’ll just say Vivi had a really hard time dealing with it and Finn wanted her to be able to do it immediately; Vivi had lived a life where everything she’d ever wanted was at her fingertips and while she had given that up it was still a part of her that hadn’t completely subsided and she needed time to think things through But even then I loved how Finn was there for her anywayI won’t say I liked all the characters in this book but I will say that I think I felt exactly the way the author wanted me to There were an array of players here some good some wicked and it made for such a wonderful read Returning to a world that Lorraine Heath created was exactly what I expected She tore my heart apart only to put it back together again and it’s something I’m so thankful for The Scoundrel in Her Bed was a wonderful story and I can’t wait to read about Finn’s siblings

Hat haunts her Lady Lavinia Kent seeks redemption in London’s underworld engaged in a daring cause inspired by the young man to whom she gave her innocence and who then proved himself a scoundrel by abandoning herWhen their paths cross again Title The Scoundrel in Her BedSeries Sins for All Seasons #3Author Lorraine HeathRelease date February 26 2019Cliffhanger NoGenrehistorical romanceNo one had ever looked at her as he did—as though he would die if he couldn’t have her as though he would die if he didLady Lavinia is the runaway bride who jilted the Duke of Thornley at the alter in When a Duke Loves a Woman It hurt his pride at first but in the end it was for the best all around She may have handled matters in an embarrassing way for the both of them but she knew that she could never give him her heart the way he deserved Though they'd been friends their whole lives he knew next to nothing about the real woman she was Nor did he seem inclined to he was simply doing his duty and fulfilling the expectations of his family What we didn't know was what she was keeping a secret because whatever it was made her disappear into hiding determined to avoid coming home at all costs At the start of the book we learn that Lavinia has taken on a personal crusade to rescue children in the baby farming business It's something she feels very passionate about and rather than sitting around bemoaning its existence she does something about it She's dirt poor after a life of privilege spending what little money she has without complaint in order to create a safe haven for the powerless as she once was Walking dangerous streets at night meeting these women who treat human beings as a profitable product she puts herself at grave risk One of these walks brings her face to face with the man who shattered her Finn Trewlove Finn has resentment built up over their shared past and the conseuences that he suffered because of it But what I really respected from him was that even when he believed he would be in the right for lashing out or even getting revenge he never disrespects her or deliberately hurts her He can't help but satisfy his curiosity over her decision to help the unwanted illegitimate children like himself Because her actions are brave admirable and don't match up with the idea of the woman who supposedly betrayed him I don't want to go too deeply into Lavinia and Finn's history for fear of spoiling the book But for a portion of the beginning of the story there are alternating chapters of past and present that will explain what molded them into the adults they've become Much than a surface infatuation they had a connection that was entirely transparent to me With the vast divide between their social status and a lack of power over their own decisions they knew it was foolish to allow themselves to dream But their hearts overruled their heads and it landed them years of separation bitterness and pain Loving her had cost Finn five years of his life Loving him had cost her—She refused to think about thatRefusing to let the past to color his perception of the woman she is today he has nothing but admiration for the foundling home she's scraped together So he concocts a plan to not only get his shot at a new beginning but give her financial security She was running scared and afraid to face the pain that a new relationship would dredge up And now after finally standing on her own two feet and finding the freedom to live her life as she saw fit would she give a man power over her once again They both had secrets that once confessed would lead to a heart wrenching decision It had always been thus between them kindling waiting for the strike of a match But somehow now everything seemed to burn hotter and brighter threatened to consume until nothing remained except ashI've enjoyed every book in the series though I think this one inched out in front as my new favorite It had an emotional impact that the others didn't uite meet and even had me a little teary eyed at the end They both went through so much hardship and injustice It broke my heart to see the suffering they had to go through in order to finally find the happiness they deserved It was lovely to see the Trewloves come together once again and support each other like the fiercely loyal family they are The next book is Aiden's my least favorite brother but my faith in this author is so solid that I'll probably still read it because I trust that she has the ability to change my mind Lorraine Heath has become a new staple for me in the genre with her captivating writing three dimensional characters and historical accuracy I can't recommend her enough FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON
