The Hellion and The Heartbreaker by Jennifer McNare



Alec flinched as Scarlett’s teeth pierced his skin, causing him to jerk his hand back in stunned surprise.  He couldn’t believe it.  She’d bitten him.  He stared at his hand in disbelief.  The wretched little brat had actually drawn blood.

Two years later

Lost in thought, Alec Weston idly rubbed his left thumb across the pliant flesh between the thumb and index finger of his right hand, along the four, faint white scars that permanently marred the top of his hand.  They were barely visible, unnoticeable to anyone but himself really, but he had developed the unwitting habit of rubbing his thumb over the tiny ridges, most often when he was agitated. 

 The Hellion and The Heartbreaker by Jennifer McNare

Scarlett McPhearson has four doting brothers and has been spoiled by them. She is as fiery as her red curls. She has always known the Duke of Worthe and secretly vowed to have him since she was 13. Alex is attracted to her but he does not wish to dally with his best friend's sister. Scarlett sets out to seduce him and he makes her no promises. 

Set in the Regency period, the novel has good potential. Scarlett offers Alex her love but he is not ready for that. What I liked about the novel the way her brothers stood up for her. They did not berate her for falling in love. They supported her and were always with her.

This sounds like a fun read. I like that the brothers were supportive and not opposed to her falling in love. It's a nice change of pace to avoid that conflict!

I love Regency romances.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Sounds like a good story. I think I'd like the brothers being supportive too, instead of trying to talk her out of being in love, especially in that era.
My Teaser is from A SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLAN.

I think it's funny how the opening is not sexual, but sounds it. Not my cup of tea, but I bet it's a lot of fun.
