I liked the mongoose. Who puts a mongoose in their book? I also liked the hero. His laid back approach was most amusing
The main characters kept my interest throughout the book and the backdrop of Egypt with its history was intriguing. I didn't know this was part of a series. I can't wait to read the others!
This is a fun and interesting romance book. I am reading the three in this trilogy in reverse order and this is my favorite! Fun and interesting male roles, lots of Egyptian lore and descriptions, lots of exciting scenes. The females are by turns funny, smart and colorful. The males handsome, ruthless, tender and, again, funny. I loved this book.
Really good book. Regency historical in an unusual setting (Egypt). Steamy romance, humorous.
Loved Rupert and Daphne, both original characters and an interesting situation. A keeper for certain. My only complaint - Daphne's nickname - Daphy.
I will definately read more Loretta Chase...this was a fun book! I loved all the little things about Egypt.
A really nice historical romance. I like the novels like this that deal with far off exotic lands and new cultures.
Beautifully written, engaging characters. More suspense than I care for but very well done.
Very good! Both a hero and heroine that you can like.
enojoyed the egypt setting for something different
"Lord of Scoundrels" is one of if not the best in this genre. So like most I've bought everything with Loretta Chase's name on it. Sadly, Mr. Impossible was a disappointment. I couldn't even finish the book.:(
Another great book by Loretta Chase. Ne'er do-well younger son Rupert Carsington is sent to Egypt to get him out of his family's hair and he meets up with Daphne Pembroke, bluestocking and hieroglyphics expert. Lots of fun, adventure, local color and heroics by both parties follows. I highly recommend it.
I loved this book! I Loved Rupert & Daphne ... they were perfect for one another!
really like this author, and this book was great
quick read, another one to take to the beach with ya...
Very adventurous and full of humor. Great book.
This was the perfect book to read during our super hot summer-the weather in the book was hot as well as ours.
My favorite Loretta Chase group is the Carsington series, and this is my favorite of the Carsington books. I adore Rupert, not because he's handsome and manly and throws people out windows and all that silly stuff, but because he likes that Daphne is smart. He doesn't just put up with it for the sex, he *likes* it -- he's *proud* of her. Whatta hero!
It does keep you on your toes with all the dramatic turns of event in Egypt.
Intimate knowledge of the workings of old and 1800s Egypt.
