Merritt Steele, Earl of Ashby, owner of this scandalous paper only inherited his title from a far cousin a year ago and doesnt feel like an aristocrat himself. But he has a sister wh [...]

    5. I have to say that I loved the Ladies of Virtue! It is an interesting dynamic of the story. I though it was a fun cute read but I would not necessarily call the new earl a Scoundrel. I found the brother to be super annoying and his actions towards the end should not have been easily forgiven. Overall it was a cute story and funny to see her continuing with the bet. I will definitely check out the rest of the series as they come out!

    6. The Scoundrel and the Lady is a very cute story around Lady Iris Bennington and Lord Merritt Steele. I'm not sure I'd call Merritt a scoundrel but he's definitely not your usual kind of earl. He only inherited his earldom in the last year from a distant relative. He was not raised in society and had never expected to inherit. Instead he had been living as the editor of a scandal rag that he is quite proud of. When Lady Iris confronts Merritt in regards to a column that is being run in his paper, [...]

    7. Many years ago I used to read Robyn DeHart and then I lost track of her. I am so happy that I have found her again. I had forgotten how much i enjoyed her books. This book is just another example. The story is about Iris and Merritt. She is the daughter of an Earl, independent, strong minded and who is protective of the brother whom she practically raised.Merritt is the son of a merchant, a publisher, with distant relationships to the "ton". His newspaper is a scandal rag that exposes the "ton" [...]

    8. Lady Iris Bennington lost her parents young and had to assume the care of her brother, the Earl of Nickerson, and managing the estate. Merritt Steele was a merchants son, he started at the paper on the bottom and worked his way up until he could buy it, which he did.The characters are charming, they are very loyal to their friends and family. The descriptions help the story come alive for you. The plot is excellent with a few twists and turns. I really loved this tale of a woman who thought she [...]

    9. I don't know how many times I have read a book and pitied the heroine for falling in love with an ass! Said ass also gets away with every shitty thing he does because of a pitiful excuse and three words he doesn't know the meaning of: "I love you." Merritt what-ever-the-fuck-his-last-name-is was the ass who should've begged on his knees for forgiveness and then after Iris traveled the world and had her adventures maybe she would've forgiven him. One small, meaningless gesture doesn't make a full [...]

    11. A merchant’s son, a newspaperman and an earl…all the same person. Iris is furious with her brother for living the life of a “gentleman” (drinking and gambling to excess) until she finds out why he thinks it is okay. As with most newspapermen, Merritt is looking for the next big story and refuses to give up writing and publishing his articles. But what Iris’ brother does not understand is that the articles are not meant to be “words to live by”. Both Merritt and Iris are great chara [...]

    12. Lady Iris Bennington, sister of the Earl of Nickerson, is a rule follower who has never broken the rules society has set down, until Merritt. She has given up the dreams all young debutantes have; have a come out, be courted, fall in love, marry and have children. Iris is a woman that can take care of herself and knows her mind, but under the surface there are insecurities that make her incredibly relatable.Merritt Steele, owner of the newspaper the Daily Scandal, is the son of a merchant that h [...]

    13. Merritt Steele loves a scandal and the more illicit the better and he knows that every writer envies his knowledge of the well to do and his paper that he built from the bottom up proves how in step he is with his readers. By a wicked turn of fate Merritt is now part of the group he is so enamored of trashing all this has done is make him more determined to prove he cares little about society and what they think. However, Lady Iris Bennington does have an interest in what he is writing as it is [...]

    14. This was not a good read for me. The "brother is ruining himself and the sister must step in to save him" is an overused storyline and should only be done if the author is good enough to revamp it. Otherwise, all I'm left with is an overwhelming urge to re-read "Lord of Scoundrels." In this story, the dissolute brother came home drunk once. This is enough to make our heroine spin into a whirlwind of despair before settling on a course of action: to confront the editor of a series of articles tha [...]

Anyway, I did enjoyed The Scoundrel and the Lady. We meet Merritt Steele at the beginning. He kind has a disdain for the ton, so it's ironic that he inherits an earldom. However, he's not going to quit his business, but now he can use his connections to more for his paper. Iris Bennington, an outstanding young woman heading her way to spinste [...]

    21. MUST READ!I absolutely love this story! Lady Iris, has raised her younger brother since their parents death.

He is now an Earl himself, from a distant relative, on his Mother's side of the family. This is a story of opposites attract, which I lov [...]

    22. Definitely a buy book. Well I almost stopped reading and I would of been very sorry! It took some time but the story picked up and then remained a good story line and a very enjoyable read! I will say it this way, this author is very talented and her worlds are very creative, sometimes it takes time for the book to actually get going and this was definitely one of that type. So if you can handle a slow start turning into a good read this is a book for you! I was given this book in return for an [...]

    23. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a new book in a new series by a new author to me. Merritt runs a Scandal paper and is now an Earl. Iris is a lady of the town who wants to save her wayward brother. When these two meet sparks fly. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two I just wish that Merritt would have been better. He was such a jerk to her and just didn't deserve her. I would be interested in more from the author.

    24. I really liked this fun, fast-paced and steamy read. Iris plans of confronting the man writing columns on how to be a gentleman when it is poorly influencing her brother. She goes to confront Merritt and instead of getting what she wants she ends up making an interesting bet. Who will win, perhaps both of them? Entertaining read with great chemistry and a great story.

    25. Sparks flyMerritt is a self made man. Iris is a take charge woman. No spoiler here, but when they meet trouble follows. Siblings play a big part in their challenges. I love Iris. She puts her brother first in her life. Merritt puts business first. Pick up this book, and see where it leads you. Meanwhile, I look forward to the next book in the Lords of Vice series.
