Arlene H. How could she unite with a rake like Richard Cynster-- a masterful man with a scandalous reputation?

Scandals Bride Cynster Bk 3, Stephanie Laurens. (Paperback ) Book Reviews,
So she formed a plan to get the heir she needed without taking wedding vows. Catriona drugs Richard, sneaks into his room and has sex with him.
This is called rape. It's completely inappropriate and immoral. Why was I so ok with that when I was younger.
Does Stephanie Lauren's not believe men can be raped? If Richard drugged her and then slept with the world would be in uproar and call him a rapist. Just disturbing. View 2 comments. Scandal Cynster has avoided marriage and "matchmaking women". Thoroughly enjoyed this installment of the Cynster series.

I didn't expect to love his character so much. What a pleasant surprise that Scandal turned out to be my kind of man. He's strong, intelligent and protective. Best of all, he's a slow patient lover that likes to go all night. In every way known to man. I want to see you flower for me.

And I want to wake and find you beside me. I want to hold you forever. I want to be your lover in all ways. In every sense of the word and the deed. I need a cold shower after that speech!! His love interest turns out to be a sexy witch with potions and healing capabilities. She is skeptical of marrying a dominant man and fears he will interfere with her witchy ways. She only entertains Scandal because her goddess tells her that he will father her children. Full of angst, sex, love and attempted murder, this one kept me up at night.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I added this book to my All Things Summer Challenge because it's been sitting on my tbr pile for a long time. The few books I've read in the Cynster series were pretty good, but it's not one of my favorite historical series.
Scandal's Bride turned out to be a nice surprise. I was dragged, kicking and screaming, into enjoying this book.
I get really bored with Lord Rake who finds himself reluctantly drawn into marriage-type storylines, and the Cynster series is ripe with those. And, Catriona woul I added this book to my All Things Summer Challenge because it's been sitting on my tbr pile for a long time.
And, Catriona wouldn't be my ideal choice of a heroine. But, I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up liking Richard, aka "Scandal", quite a bit. I vaguely remember liking him in the other Cynster books, but that was years ago. His past rakish deeds aren't really rubbed in my face, so that helps. I like that he wasn't extremely averse to marrying Catriona, if that got her in his arms. He's actually a pretty nice guy, smart, and kind. He was willing to play second fiddle as the consort to Catriona, who is the official lady of her lands.
He was open minded about Catriona's religion, which involves worship of The Lady.

I really respected him for being a strong, dominant man who was able to take on that kind of role, and do it with grace, because that was what being with the woman he loved entailed. At times, Catriona was a bit too arrogant for my tastes. I do realize that it was a necessity to be so, with all the responsibilities she held. She started growing on me pretty fast.
By the end of the book, I liked her quite a bit. The whole aspect of neither wanting to reveal the strength of their feelings for each other really got to me. I could feel the pain on both sides. Catriona didn't want to hold Richard hostage in her valley, if he wanted to go to London with his family; Richard felt like he didn't matter and wasn't important to Catriona.
