This is the first book for the Boscastle family written by Jullian Hunter. You learn about the family and their passion for love. The men are talk dark and handsome with blue eyes. The Boscastle men can't deny their passion for women. Where there are Boscastle is a scandal. I had to read the entire series after reading this book. There are descriptive sections of passion but it's the story that draws you into each book.
Enjoyable read but not worthy of the gushing reviews. All the characters speak to each other in a manner that seems very frank and with overt sexuality that seems out of place for the times. There was too much of the girls in Jane's family, including Jane herself, telling the hero how "manly" he was and how overwhelming he is to women. It was a little too simpering and creepy. The characters were cute but the resolution dragged on forever without a lot of payoff. I did enjoy the introduction to the rest of the Boscastle clan and liked the book enough to read others in the series.
The sensuality was sexy but not graphic.
The English Scoundrel started out at a slower pace then I enjoy, however once the story began to unravel it was highly enjoyable and the characters were easy to fall in love with. I look forward to following the Boscastle Family through the rest of the books in the series. However I have a feeling that this book will remain my favorite.
