Sweetest Scoundrel Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars


Prim, proper, and thrifty, Eve Dinwoody is all business when it comes to protecting her brother's investment. But when she agrees to control the purse strings of London's premier pleasure garden, Harte's Folly, she finds herself butting heads with an infuriating scoundrel who can't be controlled.


Bawdy and bold, Asa Makepeace doesn't have time for a penny-pinching prude like Eve. As the garden's larger-than-life owner, he's already dealing with self-centered sopranos and temperamental tenors. He's not about to let an aristocratic woman boss him around . . . no matter how enticing she is.


In spite of her lack of theatrical experience-and her fiery clashes with Asa-Eve is determined to turn Harte's Folly into a smashing success. But the harder she tries to manage the stubborn rake, the harder it is to ignore his seductive charm and raw magnetism. There's no denying the smoldering fire between them-and trying to put it out would be the greatest folly of all . . .

  • One of my new faves in this series

    Ms Hoyt never fails in her story telling. Suspense, angst, tenderness, a little tragedy and always love and healing. I loved the main characters and the supporting cast as well. Well written, the pace of the story and love affair make sense. I love the big strong hero who is soft and thoughtful of their heroine and her fears. I loved the heroine for having courage even though she had real and legitimate reasons to just be afraid and live within the confines of that fear. And the fights between the two of them. We only see a few of the past Maiden Lane characters as they relate to Asa's family, but it's enough of a wink to the rest of the series for me. It has become so much more than just about the Ghost of St. Giles.
