Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
I love how KJ Charles doesn’t shy away from introducing ethical conflicts between her leads & how usually both leads—the righteous one & the scoundrel—realize they have something to learn by the end .
In the case of A Nobleman’s Guide to Seducing a Scoundrel, said scoundrel is helping said nobleman work through his disheveled mess of ledgers & records, all the while deceiving him as to his deeper reasons for being there.
(I love this kind of deception btw bc of the promised grovel that happens later & that scene is so touching in this book.)
That’s the surface plot of this book &—minus one minor-ish element I’m still a bit confused about —it’s great. But where the book really gets to me is in its tender moments, the steam, the way that KJ Charles infuses her characters with nuance & appeal. These leads really come to life in this book, they shine & their HEA is one I was so delighted to watch.
Happiness-inducing & sweet as candy (with a dastardly relative or two thrown in the mix to add a little trouble.)
5⭐️. Out 09/19.
CWs: past parental abandonment; reference to a lead’s mother being raped in past; a lead is a former POW; one lead has difficulty reading & has been made fun of for that & feels ashamed. Attempted murder.
Give me that HEA, please.
