Review: Never Trust A Scoundrel by Gayle Callen

 I think is the first book I've read by Gayle Callen.  It. Was. Great!

A pact with the devil . . .

Miss Grace Banbury was in shock. Her mother put her up as a prize in a high stakes card game, and now the gentleman who won is ready to claim her! But Grace has other plans. She just needs the dastardly rogue to go along with it . . .

A notorious rake from a scandalous family, Daniel Throckmorten has no use for blushing virgins. Yet there's no denying the attraction for the beauty standing before him, proposing an enticing wager: He will use all his charm and wit to seduce her into his bed . . . and she only has to resist. If she succeeds, she wins enough funds to secure her own future. If he wins . . . she'll be his. Daniel has never been so tempted—and he has no intention of losing . . .  description taken from here.

I loved that Grace was a product of her time, yet had modern notions.  She didn't cower down like a lot of female characters from Historical novels do.  She stood up and said 'this is how it is buddy, deal with it'. 

Daniel.  Where do I start with him??? He was so sweet and scandleous and hurt and rakish.. it was sexy. *smiles*  I loved his name, I loved his actions and how he tried to sweet talk Grace yet knew when to pull back and be a gentleman.  He was all around perfect.  Daniel is the  novel romance male lead that makes women raise the bar for men in real life. Haha.  : )

**** Keeper!!!!
Heat Rating= Sweet/mild

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!
