Review: The Scoundrel In Her Bed by Lorraine Heath

Avon, 2018


I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It has been a long time since a romance has totally ripped my heart out made me cry. And I mean ugly cry. I cried so hard and so ugly.  Perhaps it’s because this book struck a symphony’s worth of personal chords for me but I will be thinking about these characters and their story and this ending…omg this ending… for days. Which is why this book gets five stars from me. The Scoundrel in her Bed is classic ‘glass-case-of-emotion’ Lorraine Heath and I loved it.

There is so much I want to say about The Scoundrel In Her Bed but I just can’t without spoiling! I have so many feelings. I’ll just say that there was a lot of jumping through time in the beginning and parts of that might feel a bit slow but just wait. Maybe this story wasn’t the sexiest romance I’ve read recently but it holds its own. And the selfless, soul-deep love here…well…just give me a minute while I clutch my sleeping baby and quietly sob.

The Scoundrel In Her Bed releases in February of 2019! You can preorder it now or I will remind you to buy it in a fe months. Just make sure you have some tissues too. And, in true Trewlove spirit, I remind you that November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Maybe pause to celebrate that love is what makes a family. Thank you Edelweiss and Avon for the chance to read an advanced copy.


Lady Lavinia Kent is a woman burned by life and love. Seeking absolution, she’s devoted herself to saving illegitimate  children from dreadful fates…and it has everything to do with the boy from her past who abandoned her.

Finn Trewlove, the bastard son of a noble, fell in love with a lady above his station and paid dearly for it. And yet, when his path once again crosses with Lavinia’s, he finds himself still drawn to her despite her betrayal.

But everything changes when the truth comes out. Lavinia and Finn find themselves desperate to reclaim the life and love that was always rightfully theirs.

Happy Romance Reading!
