Never Love a Scoundrel

Book 5, Secrets & Scandals

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When the beast leaves his lair…
Labeled a lunatic and a reprobate, Lord Jason Lockwood finds solace in debauchery outside the realm of Polite Society. Scarred both inside and out, Jason can’t possibly hope to regain a place within the ton…until he meets an alluring and persuasive young lady. When she offers to help him reclaim respectability, he’s tempted not by the possibility of a better reputation, but by the lure of seduction. With her by his side, he not only sees what he’s been missing, but also how much he stands to lose.

A beauty’s touch provokes his desire…
Lady Lydia Prewitt is everything a debutante should be: beautiful, dowried, and in possession of a sterling reputation. But Lydia’s former life as a gossip has ensured a lonely path. When the opportunity to assist the scandalous yet seductive Lord Lockwood gain entry into London’s best ballrooms, she glimpses a chance for a future she never dreamed of—if he’s willing to meet her halfway. But how can she risk falling in love with a scoundrel if it means joining him in exile?

Customer Reviews

A grownup fairytale

Lord Jason Lockwood is a beast; disfigured, wicked, and rumored to be insane. He presides over his notorious vice parties as Master of Ceremonies. How can a man of such shocking appetites hope to reclaim his place in polite society?

Lady Lydia Prewitt is beautiful, but feared, and under the cruel machinations of her evil gossip mongering Aunt. After multiple failed seasons, she no longer wishes to help her Aunt wield the reins of the gossip mill. Knowledge may be powerful, but its strength is in how you use the information.

Never Love a Scoundrel was like a mash-up of fairy-tales. The beauty must tame the beast; all while outmaneuvering a vengeful Aunt and shifty half-brother. Along the way, they learn to appreciate the uniqueness of the other and together they forge their happy ending. Darcy Burke weaves a marvelous story which draws back many of the much loved characters from her previous books. It’s like meeting a group of friends, learning their back stories, and finding out how they all came to be together. This book has intrigue, an apparent suicide, a double homicide, and revenge. I can’t wait to read about Ethan Locke in Scoundrel Ever After.

A must read

What a great book to read and re-read. Intrigue, humor, passion-this book had it all. I am now a Darcy Burke fan. The characters were a great mesh and the story flowed really well, what a unique story.
