At times I felt sooo sorry for Dain, who grew up unwanted and unloved, but other times I wanted to slap him upside the head and I hardly know what to say about this one. The hero does all these mean things to the heroine and all the hero says to apologize is a lame ‘I’m sorry’ and that’s it.
We don’t need their backstory, and she doesn’t dump one on us! Most of all, she wasn’t afraid to call Dain on his bullshit.

Lord of Scoundrels : Loretta Chase :
I’m a sucker for the tough-on-the-outside and vulnerable-underneath leading man, so I found that part of him appealing. Not knowing love, he felt he was unworthy of being loved. I still love it. As I said before, Sebastian has the typical romance ‘misunderstandings’ where he does unkind things toward the heroine because of his misguided assumptions. Sebastian, now the intelligent but immoral 3rd Marquess of Dain, meets his match in Miss Jessica Trent, who has arrived in the city to rescue her unintelligent, nearly penniless brother Bertie from Dain’s bad influence.
Description They call him many names, but Angelic isn’t one of them.
Jessica, a year-old beautiful, strong-willed bluestockinghas refused dozens of marriage proposals over the years and wishes to maintain her independence. I have no idea why. Sebastian, Marquess of Dain, is a half-Italian man of unconventional chzse who has been shamed since childhood on account of his large nose and flighty mother who ditched him as a young boy to go live with another man. When writing the novel, Chase knew that her female protagonist had to be strong enough to equal Dain’s forceful personality.

She doesn’t llrd it against Sebastian and wants them to keep the child since it looks like he isn’t being cared for well. Sunday, August 14th “. He has a sense of humor and is adept with clever comebacks and putdowns”. We do not talk about what women need. But Scoundreos was given only the occasional attention by his mother, and none by his father. Later, at a party they almost consummate their relationship before being discovered by other party-goers.
