Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

Okay, so I hear all over blog-land that Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase is the favorite romance of many. So there's me thinking, "hmmm, I don't think I've ever read this paragon of romance novels and need to change that." So I head over to Paperback Swap and found it. And read it. And realized I'd already read it.

How could I have forgotten I read this book? No clue. Probably was one I'd checked out from the library in my early romance reading days. Now, I have to say that it IS a great romance and I think it'll stay on my keeper shelf. My favorite? Not so sure. It does have some of the best characters, though. It's just so funny how I was certain I'd never read it, yet I had. Luckily it had been awhile and though I knew what I was reading was something I'd read before, I didn't remember what happened next.

But geez, I almost always remember if I've read something or not when I see it. *shakes head* It was good, though. Really good. And I'm not going to talk about it since I think I was the last person in romance world to have read it, so you all know it's good and don't need me to convince you. And if you haven't read it, what are you waiting for????

It's up there on my list of faves, but it's one of those mood-based rereads for me. :)

It's a good book, but not an all time favorite.

"mood-based rereads"--good description.

It's so wonderful it makes me want to stop trying--there's no point. The scene in the cafe with the glove is more erotic than many of the eroticas I've been reading lately.

You're not the last person in the romance reading universe to have read LORD OF SCOUNDRELS, but aren't you glad you finally made the connection?

I remember when I first joined RRA-L and they were going ga-ga over it and I hadn't thought much of her (Chase) previous books so I waited a long time to get it. When I did, it was such a story. Made me cry, laugh, cry and sigh. Wonderful combination. And I do agree, the cafe scene is so erotic plus the one under the lamp, in the Paris downpour. I've been in Parisan downpours but never ones quite like that *sigh*
