How refreshing to read a well written book of this genre that used particularly excellent wordsmithing to paint the most delightful images of private moments!! I will be an ardent follower of Miss Scott’s skills for a long long time.
The Playboy Peer by Scarlet Scott is the second book in the Unexpected Lords Series. This is a story of two people who have had their hearts broken in the past (or so they believed) and find love in an unexpected place. Izzy drinks too much while at a ball and literally throws herself at Zachary, who is waiting for a female of a different sort. Unfortunately for the drunken Izzy, they get caught and the only way to save the situation is for them to marry.Issy is a spunky, daring heroine who has been hurt before and wants to protect her heart. She sees Zachary the same way as the rest of society as a Playboy, until she gets to know him better. Zachary was the third son of an Earl and never expected to inherit the title, until both his brothers are killed in a boating accident. He has always lived his life on his terms and protects his heart. While both know what it’s like to be passed over for someone else, neither knows what it is truly like to be in love and loved in return until they find each other.Their journey to true love is paved with misunderstanding, fears, and problems from the past. Issy and Zachary are relatable characters that pull at the heart strings, while also causing you to want to shake some sense into them at times. Watching these characters learn to trust themselves and each other was enjoyable and made for a good read. Seeing their vulnerable sides, especially confident Zachary was endearing.I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I lost sleep reading this book, but I would do it again! Look forward to reading more by this author.
There is nothing new here. This plot has been done over and over. Scott adds nothing new in twists or character development.I skipped most of this retread.
I enjoyed this book. Isolde and Zachary were a wonderful couple that made this book a delight to read. A solid book with an interesting plot. I find Scarlett Scott to be a great historical romance author. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
This series of books is a great read. I love how the characters come together and how the author vividly writes Each scene in a way that I can envision everything that is happening.
