It is with pleasure that I recommend this week’s historical romance, WHEN THE SCOUNDREL SINS, book two in the Capturing the Carlisles series written by Anna Harrington. This regency novel isn’t set in the typical ballrooms of London, England, although readers will begin their journey there. Instead, its backdrop is only miles from Scotland’s border. With only a few weeks until her twenty-fifth birthday Annabelle “Belle” Green, needs a husband or she’ll lose her inheritance. Quinton “Quinn” Carlisle ruined her chance at a proper season, six years ago. Humiliated and embarrassed, Annabelle needs Quinton to marry her. Afraid of love, Quinn cannot bear to see the woman he desires sell her soul to a loveless marriage as he struggles with his feelings for the bluestocking.
If you haven’t yet read one of Anna Harrington’s novels, please don’t wait any longer. I’m in love with her prose. Each of her novels has kept me up into the wee hours of morning while I eagerly uncover the simmering details that emerge as an epic romance develops. Her ability to expose the fragility of human beings as they risk their hearts in the game of love is intoxicating. Tender and seductive, her novels are a wicked addiction that rejoice in my heart. I’m so honored to have been given an advanced copy of this novel from the publisher. I cannot wait for the next one.

Suddenly, Belle’s single status may cost her the only home she’s ever known. Now, with her only marital prospect a horribly greedy and completely undesirable man, Belle knows just the person to rescue her-the one person who owes her for his bad behavior…
There’s nothing Quinn Carlisle wants more than to get out from his older brother’s shadow and make a name for himself abroad. So when a mysterious letter arrives, promising adventure, he rushes to the Scottish border…only to find that Belle laid a trap for him. The awkward, shy bluestocking whom he so enjoyed tormenting is gone, replaced by a graceful, elegant woman who ignites a desire in him he can’t resist.
