ARC Review: How the Scoundrel Seduces by Sabrina Jeffries

ebook, 400 pages
Expected publication: August 19th 2014 by Pocket Books

The third deliciously sexy novel in the New York Times bestselling Duke’s Men historical romance series, featuring an investigator who sets out to find gypsies—and unexpectedly finds love.

Investigator Tristan Bonnaud has one aim in life—to make sure that his half-brother George can’t ever ruin his life again. So when the pesky Lady Zoe Keane, the daughter of the Earl of Olivier, shows up demanding that the Duke’s Men find a mysterious gypsy woman, he seizes the opportunity to also hunt for a gypsy friend who knows secrets about George. Tristan doesn’t expect to uncover Lady Zoe’s family secrets, as well…or end up falling for the woman who will risk all to discover the truth.

Once again the Duke's Men are solving mysteries. This series gives just that little bit of Mystery edge. This particular book, Tristen had to do a lot more investigating to solve Lady Zoe's case.
But Lady Zoe would not allow Tristen to do his work alone, she insisted she go with him (even though she knew she shouldn't)
I love with the authors of the genre throw in the Gypsies, because it really adds a different feel to the story. And both sides have a misconception about the other, and of course the true natural always comes out.
Lady Zoe, is extremely pushy/bossy and does not act like other ladies of the "ton".
Tristen is a rouge and scoundrel.
Lord Keane,Lady Zoe's father runs his household and family like he is still in the army.
Lady Zoe's aunt, seems like a total bitch to me and she should have been put in her place a long time ago.
Jeremy Keane, Zoe's American cousin. A total wild card, and while visiting refuses to adhere to the London "ton rules". I did NOT like Jeremy at all, I so wanted Zoe or anyone to tell him off, and tell him he can not talk about the things he was in public conversation.
