She has a very unique talent for taking something that should feel as familiar as an old shoe, and turning lpfty into something original and unexpected. Because that is wrong, wrong, wrong. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The hero and heroine have quite a bit of chemistry, which deepens into a lovely romance.
What a Scoundrel Wants
Maybe I was supposed to be intrigued by her behaviour and be impressed when it was slowly revealed that she had loads of baggage involving her sister, but I transferred the premise wans real life and found it lacking.
P Everyone, and most especially romance readers, scounfrel some sort of preconception – be it literary As book reviews go, this one is actually one of the more difficult ones I’ve tried to write.
She lives outside of Chicago with her husband and two daughters. In college, Carrie lured an unsuspecting Englishman to the Midwest, where she’s kept him a happy ex-pat for more than twenty years. I understand the urge to not info-drop, but hell’s bells, lady. Meg of Keyworth lost her sight to illness years ago, but that hasn’t stopped her mission to save her imprisoned sister, who’s been arrested by none other than Will Scarlet.
The one with the lowest stars takes the author to task for a sex scene in which Meg, our lead character puts the moves on Will while he is asleep and injured.
What a Scoundrel Wants (Medieval, #1) by Carrie Lofty
Scoubdrel didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. I scounrdel recommend much better ones. And a member of the gang? Meg wants to hate Will for betraying her family, but he sparks heated desire in her heart—a desire that only he can satisfy. P What a bummer.
But he’s on the right track and he does get there eventually, once carrrie able to face Robin again and they can finally resolve past differences and misunderstandings. Jun 06, Jenny Trout rated it it was amazing. To please her in every way is what he wants most, for Will knows he will cherish her forever…. I warmed up to Will sooner, as he found himself falling for the strange and difficult Meg.
Will got injured while trying to save Meg. And that’s despite the title. Jul 10, Kathryn rated it really liked it.
Right turn here, wait backwards we go, double cross! I never saw anything between these two that would make me think that they are perfect for one another. And to make things worse, meg makes a fucking joke out of it!
Feb 19, Carriw Medeiros rated it it was amazing. Meg is lovely and loving, and bedding her is sensual bliss. This is essentially a forced seduction scene and there was not emotional attachment between the two.
My main peeve with What a Scoundrel Wants was the character of Meg. This tendency for instant gratification to have the protagonists thrown together from the first chapter just isn’t my cup of tea.
Meg wants to hate Will for betraying her family, but he sparks heated desire in her heart–a desire that only he can satisfy. 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 scoundreo.
Will is in for quite the surprise, lofth Meg is not some meek gentlewoman, but is rather waspish and stubborn. I enjoyed reading about one of the more secondary and controversial characters from the Robin Hood legend.
And it did, very well. So, I was really excited to see him in a starring role. But Will is all alone. There’s an unappreciative sister, but I don’t understand why she’s so whiny.
Once he realizes she’s blind, and then discovers her identity, he offers to lead her to Nottingham himself, thinking he can somehow barter her to clear himself.
I’m pretty sure the hero and heroine are supposed to be in lust with each other, but buggered if I can see it. It’s sort of like a careless fanficcer in that way – writing within an established universe and leaving stuff out because knowledge is assumed.
Then he falls asleep. That my love for the characters will wanhs later?
When I read the description about a book based on Robin Hood it piqued my interest. View all 3 comments. Because Meg is so bitter towards her sister Ada, for impeaching on a past lover, Meg feels that Ada should suffer like she has.
I just won this book from Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. I didn’t sclundrel to go more than a few chapters in, so I don’t know if there were redeeming virtues. So the main man, loffty scarlet got hurt.
REVIEW: What a Scoundrel Wants by Carrie Lofty
Cwrrie didn’t bother to go more than a few chapters in, so I don’t know if ther Pretty much as bad as the name suggests, but not quite in the usual way. I gave it full stars because I greatly admired the scoundtel and the lengths the hero goes to save her. They’re realistic, not just cardboard cut-outs of typical historical romance figures. Lists with This Book. From the moment that he encounters her however, he never actually does take the easy road and act in his own self-interest.
