Sweetest Scoundrel is a literary fiction book by author Elizabeth Hoyt.
Primitive, sane and frugal, Eve Dinwoody is absolutely in the business when it comes to protecting her brother’s investment. When she agrees to take control of the purse strings of London’s premier amusement garden, Harte’s Folly, she finds herself head-butting an uncontrollably enraged delinquent.
He is hosting the show
Stubborn and daring, Asa Makepeace doesn’t have time for a frilly girl like Eve. As the garden’s larger-than-life owner, he’s dealt with self-centered sopranos and erratic tenors. He won’t let a noble woman control him around…no matter how charming she may be.
But love conquers all
Despite her lack of stage experience – and her fiery performance with Asa – Eve is determined to make Harte’s Folly a resounding success. But the more she tries to control the stubborn locust, the harder it is to ignore his alluring charm and raw magnetism. There’s no denying the fire smolders between them – and trying to put it out would be the craziest thing of all….
I’ve always loved Elizabeth Hoyt’s writing since Maiden Lane’s first book and Sweetest Scoundrel fits the series perfectly.
It’s not as dramatic and scandalous as some of the previous books, as the book’s name suggests, it’s a ‘sweet’ story between two people who at first glance would never be considered a couple. Shy Eve, the daughter of a Duke, and hot-tempered Asa, the owner of a amusement garden.
For me personally, it’s a modern love story, these two characters had chemistry from the start even though the beginning wasn’t the best, but somehow they got along with each other. each other so perfect.
It’s a quick book, easy to read, but full of character and promising plot. Can’t wait for the Duke of Sin!
I have all the rest of the Maiden Lane series and this series is amazing, I will read it over and over again because Asa and Eva really got to know me men are always what you want for yourself and women Women are very attentive. The stories intertwine very well and the families are always on the edge so you can include them in the story but not overwhelm it.
