    I started reading HR with Christi Caldwell books and loved them Not really sure what has happened Have I become discerning? Harder to please? Even demanding? Hush GR friends the uestions are rhetoricalI really struggled to feel this one There were mistakes in the language the heroine just kept doing silly things view spoiler like going out at night in the freezing snow to hide in the bushes and spy on the arrival of her former betrothed and his new wife the man who had jilted her hide spoiler

Callous old interfering controlling wretch A pox on your houseRhys is such a wonderful hero He had many layers Society may have tarred and feathered him with the scoundrel label but there was so much to him than that bit of fiction His true nature is revealed in his interactions with his siblings his nieces and of course with Alice He was truly the hero she needed Alice our beloved little sister to a rake may have been knocked down by her first foray in the lists of love but she is not out for the count She wears her heart on her sleeve and in her eyes Try as she might she can't help herself Faith and Violet Such adorable little moppets to love them Rhys' relationship with them was so tender and caring I love precocious little children in my stories Be still my beating heart Daniel and Daphne have a little heir Master Alex with the luscious curls Was that an Easter egg I spied regarding Lettie? Hmmm I wonder Home Officematchmaking mamaa certain despicable rake maybe could be possibly in her future Inuiring minds want to know but will wait patiently I recommend this short read to any who enjoy a house party romance with pretend wooing that becomes real without the knowledge or awareness of its participants You will like it

    To Tempt A Scoundrel story has bits and pieces of other books in The Heart of a Duke series If you have read a few books by Christi Caldwell you will recognize the same plot line in this story as in her other stories in this series Don't waste you time Christi Caldwell didn't waste her time in putting out a decent story If she has run out of idea's just don't write a books

    Another beautiful love story from Christ Caldwell This one concerns Alice Winterbourne the sister of my favourite ever Caldwell hero the Earl of Montfort and Rhys Brookfield younger brother of Miles the Maruess of Guildford Like all HOAD books it can and does stand alone but it’s so much sweeter when you’ve followed the character development over several books This one is set at Christmas and the Christmas backdrop lends itself to some very sweet moments both between the couple and their families It’s a lighter read than some of the others in the series; although you still run the full spectrum of emotion during the read most of my tears this time were happy ones Another 5 book

    5 starsReading the blurb it's a pretend engagement It's been done before But this was very well done with a lot of depth and humour to the conversations and surprisingly the pretend engagement wasn't proposed until the last 5 6 chapters Their interactions came about very naturally I love how her hero made her find her joy and I love that he is a scholarly rogue who loves to readIt made me smile and of course tugged at my heart strings I am not sure how I missed this author's work before but I am definitely going through to try of her workHowever I really love epilogues and I would have loved one here At a GlanceHEA view spoilerYes hide spoiler

    The only thing that stuck with me was the three minutes of Daniel and Daphne plus their son Give me of them please Alice and Rhys' story was cute but overly predictable and didn't have the same emotional pull that previous books did Perhaps I'd come to expect because Daniel and Daphne's is one of my favorites by CC Sidenote How awesome would it be to get some kind of second epilogues for this series? Considering how CC rushes endings and doesn't sometimes give one epilogue some extra's would be very much loved

    Regular Christi readers have been in love with Alice and anxiously awaiting her story for what seems like ages Rhys we knew by reputation only but we have been swooning over his elder brother “Good guy Miles” since his debut in “To Woo a Widow” last year We all knew his bad boy younger brother would be something amazing Let me tell you we were rightChristi has a way of writing characters that you can’t help but love Alice has so much spark and independence She’s a heroine you will truly fall in love with right alongside her hero As for that gentleman no one could resist the charms of a rouge who has snowball fights with his nieces No oneThis story is splendid I laughed I shrieked in outrage I sighed in contentment to say it moved me would be insufficient Christi’s winter romances are always deliciously warm in all the best ways These two sizzled and sparked from the very first page It just got better Witty banter cameos by old friends adorable antics of little girls a scholarly and a pair of lovers determined to live life to the fullest society be damned are just a few of the many many things that make this story so marvelousIf you are looking for a splendid story to slip into I highly recommend giving Rhys and Alice a chance to pull you into their world

You will be delighted in this story and so sad when you turn the last page But be assured Christi will have another marvelous story to be read soon
