The Scapegrace Author:Sylvia Thorpe "A little nobody from the other side of the world with not a penny to her name. And you think you can contract a respectable marriage for her. Ridiculous!" — Mrs. Courtenay threw the words at Tristram. A wicked glint came into his eyes. "Ridiculous is it," he said softly. "I'll lay any odds you like she finds it easier to get a husband than ... more »that sour-faced daughter of yours."
When Tristram, the young Lord Maristone, took penniless American Melinda Westcott under his protective wing, he had only a faint notion of the odds against her.
Tristram, rakish and headstrong, was not one to run from a challenge. But when he determined that Melinda should become a social success, he reckoned without the danger from her hidden past-nor did he know that Melinda had fallen in love with him.« less
I thought this book was a very cute, light read; something for a lazy day at home where you're not wanting to start anything heavy and lengthy. It was well-written and the main characters were developed well.
