    2. Sebastian Sherbrook is a scoundrel and a rake so it doesn't surprise anyone that on returning to England he is almost immediately called out by the father of a young woman who has found herself pregnant and without a husband. Nobody believes his protestations of innocence and least of all the only woman he has ever loved. The woman he returned to England with the hope of courting. But with his reputation in tatters his slim hopes of wedding Lady Katherine disappear. For her part, Lady Katherine [...]

    3. My second book by this author and I loved it. If you like wit and charm in your HR, if you enjoy hilarious, quirky characters and snappy dialogue, as well as some depth with excellent characterisation, this is the book for you.Our hero, Sebastian, is generally acknowledged as The Most Beautiful Man in London. He dresses like a designer's dream and has cheekbones to die for. His reputation is that of an unrepentant rake. He has also been hopelessly in love with his aunt-by-marriage (she is younge [...]

    4. Note: At first glance, the cover of this book reminded me of the movie A Clockwork OrangeThat's NOT my idea of romance, but I've seen stranger coversA: The cover has been changed. Phew!

    6. Enjoyed this one even more than Book 1. The writer seems to have hit her stride with this book. Sebastian Sherbrook has always been a little in love with Lady Katherine, but she was married to his nasty uncle (I know, right?) and so Sebastian pushed Katherine out of his thoughts. He even went away, travelling overseas to try to sort out his life. But now Sebastian's uncle has died, and he dares to hope a little bit that perhaps one day, he and Katherine may have some sort of future together. It [...]

Review written: September 28, 2015Star Rating: ★½☆☆☆ Heat Rating: ☀☀☼☼☼An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.I'm trying to decide if I should let this book sink in to craft a well-written review or just hurry up with the review in the hopes I can scrub my mind clean again with another book and pretend I never read this one. I'm a fan of dramas, so the book blurb made me curious. I'm sorry it did, sorry in a big, big way [...]

    8. This is book two in the " The Regency Romp Trilogy" by Maggie Fenton. I have read the first book " The Duke's Holiday" and fell in love with Maggie Fenton writing. I so loved that book and was so happy to have the chance to read this book. I will say that I thought this was a stand alone book. Yes, it did have the two previous characters and some others but it was a catch up with their life that I enjoyed but it did not have impact to this story. So don't feel you have to read them in order but [...]

    9. 3 stars because I loved her first book of the series and was hoping this was as good.but alas expectations always breed disappointment. The book had its moments but didn't work as well as the first one.Fenton is a good writer with a great sense of humor.but story came across as something she put extreme effort to make it sound quirky and sarcastic. didn't flowfelt forcedd some of the stuff in the story line the like dognapping and the duc was just unnecessary. I like Sebastian and Katherines sto [...]

    11. 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 scene [...]

    12. 4 starsI will admit that this book was slow to start. The first 40% was entertaining and pertinent to the book but it was slow moving. After that stretch, it developed into a nice and sweet read. Katherine and Sebastian are fun to read together and you're rooting for them, even when they're both acting like fools. I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised with this one. *** An advance reading copy was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

    13. Maggie Fenton's Regency Romp Trilogy has a style that is romantic, funny, and just this side of farce. I did not enjoy the first book, I think because it had too much slapstick, but this book was fun. There is a lot going on here besides the romance, but it's all entertaining. I listened to the audio version of this book, which I suspect was better than reading it. The narrator sounded like she was having fun herself, and even her slight lisp added to the silliness. I mean, the hero was named Se [...]

    14. Virtuous Scoundrel is full of fun and hilarious banter, crazy dogs, dognappers, meetings at dawn, meddling friends, and past paramours. So much sexual tension sits in the air along with scandal, lies, secrets, deceptions and the best, part a love so deep once capture, would last a lifetime. Sebastien Sherbrook, newly minted Marquess Manwaring, is a reknown rake and scoubdrel in the eyes of the ton. He has just returned to England after being away for several years. He left London because of Scan [...]

    15. I must admit, I loved the first in this series, but this one just didn't live up to my expectations, despite the delicious cover of a scruffy Sebastian. I never really warmed up to Katherine, whom Sebastian has loved from afar for years while he was living abroad, earning his rakish reputation. As soon as Sebastian returns to London he is hit with a paternity suit, but he can't possibly be the father, although it takes Katherine a long time to believe that he's not as bad as his reputation makes [...]

    16. A fun read and worth the wait!

    17. Romp indeed!What I love most about Ms. Fenton's work is how she incorporates real life and the absurd in her beguiling tales. What I refer to is her obvious love of the ridiculous side of that era's culture and timeless memes (off-kilter wigs, outspoken randy older women, pets mindless of their innocent moxie). Ms. Fenton obviously loves to spin a good tale & I truly hope we are graced with more of her excellent wit! Finished in two sittings, primarily because I was inconvenienced by minor s [...]

    18. This book has a bit of an Oscar Wilde tone to it (The Importance of Being Earnest or An Ideal Husband), and as Wilde says, “It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” Sadly, tedious won in this effort.

    20. A fun read. Like all historical romances, it has all the added drama, dances and fun. A light read which won't tax your brain much. Exactly what I wanted.

    21. Just as much fun as the first one.

    22. VIRTUOUS SCOUNDREL, the second novel in Maggie Fenton's Regency Romp trilogy, was funny, sexy, and sweet in just the right moments. Secondary characters were over the top hilarious, and the mischievous subplots were mostly all in good fun. One subplot in particular had the Singlemost Beautiful Man in London on the brink of death and the aloof and icy paragon, Lady Manwaring, softening her heart to him. In a ridiculous twist of fate, the hero Sebastian Sherbrook had years ago fallen in love with [...]

    23. *i received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for a honest review*Loved it! This book has the perfect combination of drama, heat and humor. It was a lighthearted read and was extremely entertaining and funny. But it has touch of anguish and a dash of drama to keep it from being silly. I loved Sebastian and Katherine - they both have secrets and they both are in love with the other - but fight the attraction, mainly because of their secrets and the small fact [...]

    24. I went on to this straight after reading the first in this series. I wasn't too intrigued by the central couple (there's some foreshadowing of them in The Duke's Holiday Romance) I just didn't want to leave Fenton's world yet. This wasn't as strong as the first book but it's a solid 3.5 stars. Let me start with what I liked - I still think Fenton's tone is great and I like her style although I'm sure it's off putting to some - I appreciate the farce element. I still think all the side characters [...]

    25. I could have read an entire book on the beginning scene of Sebastian, Montford and Marlowe handling babysitting duties. I think my one criticism was that there was no return to this hilarious fired nurse fiasco. I loved the interaction between these three friends throughout the book and their witty bantering (not to leave out Crick the valet as well). The romance was cute and sincere and not at all typical in what you would find in this genre. I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. Maggie Fen [...]

    26. Pros: The last half of the book was very entertaining. A lot of humor was included amid very climactic situations. There was a lot of originality in the plot. Oftentimes in romance novels I have a hard time accepting the evolution of the Hero from bad guy to good guy but in this story I was not conflicted at all. His HEA was well-deserved. And the dogs in the story were hilarious scene-stealers. Cons: The first half of the book dragged on and on. I skimmed large sections of the first 5 chapters. [...]

    27. Solid, very solid 4.25, narration 4.5.This author has a way of making Lucille Ball visit historical romances, lots of stillness and pratfalls. I particularly like that she does a great job making the males not perfect. Willing to extend themselves to the silly for their lady loves. It's not all laughter though there are serious items in there and I particularly like how they were handled.The crime though was "lame" and the only reason why it's not a 5. This author must love the chaos that animal [...]

    28. I am a bit disappointed with this book. It could have been something amazing. I loved the writing in the beginning. It started out so strongly and ended on a good note too. However, the middle parts were not so great. It was just alright. I felt like the story was a bit scattered and it wasn't until it was reaching its end that it had that distinctive voice that made the book stand out. It just wasn't present throughout, hence the disappointment. It could have been something awesome but the midd [...]

    29. Surprisingly a pompous half french peacock wearing multicolored last fashion garments, watch chains and rings, and the famous tasseled Hessian's, that would have made the People's Magazine "Most Beautiful Man" is a disguised knight in shining armor that has true love at heart. He also jumps in the fire to rescue pet pigs for his mademoiselle in distress. Well done, laughed, cried and laughed some more. Easy reading and delightful. Stay Inspired !!!
