A woman’s screams lead Will straight into the carnage to save her—but the ravishing young lady is not the helpless maid she appears to be.
What a Scoundrel Wants
To be honest I’m not sure how to review this book. The beautiful Meg lost her sight as a young girl carri has learned to live with the help of her sister. Unfortunately for Will, he is set up to be the patsy in one of the sheriff’s nefarious plots, and in the process of extricating himself from a wanta sticky and life-threatening situation, he comes to the aid of a lady in socundrel another potential patsythe heroine, Meg of Keyworth.
I think there was more than meets the eye between these two and not just the one introductory scene of torture Finch inflicts on Ada. You can find the rest at All About Romance: She knew what she wanted and would do just about anything to get it. Will is responsible for arresting a young woman buy the name of Ada, who was trying to use some counterfeit emeralds while she was in Nottingham. There’s an unappreciative sister, but I don’t understand why she’s so whiny.
Will is a conflicted hero, sometimes even less than a hero for being on the wrong side or even stuck in the middle between his personal hatreds and the hatreds his position in society bring to him naturally. The characters, descriptions, speech, and the like, definitely transport you back to merry ole England. Particularly Meg, who is vulnerable due to her lack of sight, and shunned for her differences. This tendency for instant gratification to have the protagonists thrown together from the first chapter just isn’t my scoundeel of tea.
I like that Lofty didn’t gloss over the dirtiness of living in the woods and fighting. This is not an easy read. Open Preview See a Problem? I didn’t bother to go more than a few chapters in, so I don’t know if scoudnrel were redeeming virtues.
Meet Robin’s rakish nephew, Will Scarlet, a man whose talents with the sword and the ladies are legendary–until his desire for one woman changes everything. Because that is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Will and Meg make a great couple and complement one another well, as all great couples do. Jun 06, Jenny Trout rated it it was amazing. My main peeve with What a Scoundrel Wants was the character of Meg.
What A Scoundrel Wants (Scoundrel, book 1) by Carrie Lofty
And when horny Meg decides to literally mount Will, while he is under a fever induced sleep because he whaf hurt saving Meg, I was disgusted. Sure, movies start out with a bang sometimes with great success like Gladiatorbut there was simply no groundwork at ALL in the first chapter here to give me any connection whatsoever to the people who were scrambling around with swords in the woods. The action kept the story moving as I wanted to know how they were going to get out of trouble and I kept guessing at wxnts was the real villain!
I spent much of this book feeling like I was as blind as the protagonist, but I did awnts the story and the writing was good. Meg is a phenomenal woman and I really liked the way the author portrayed her within small town medieval life. Both the hero and heroine are clearly flawed and vulnerable but very likeable characters. This is a partial review.
What A Scoundrel Wants
To be honest, I really wasn’t a fan of either character. I think Will Scarlet would have turned over in wante grave, if he’d had one. Her paranormal as Lindsey Piper and historical romances from Pocket have been described as “nuanced and superbly realized” The Chicago Tribune and “sexy, brutal and somehow innocent” All About Romance.
What I loved about Meg was her unapologetic attitude. Recommended for fans of historical romance, fans of the Robin Hood legend, and fans of the BBC television show: What she did instead was write something that could respectably dovetail with almost every other popular adaptation of Robin Hood – most especially with Robin Hood: Almost surprisingly well, from my point of view. Dec 13, Jennifer rated it really liked it.
To please her in every way is what he wants most. I’ll get my Merry Men jollies elsewhere.
Meg is a very brilliant and gifted alchemist, shunned by the local populace as being a mad witch. The oversexed heroine is so spiteful, downright rude, vindictive, ungrateful, irascible to define her succinctly: If someone comes at me like a raging b!
You could smell the smoke from the fire. She pretty much said it was OK for her to do because she was a girl. Want to ,ofty saving….
And to make things worse, meg makes a fucking joke out of it! It should have been fun.
