It is always a pleasant surprise when the last book in a series is the best. In this case it probably is the best or at least equal with the first. The romance is augmented by the mysteries of Julian's past and Leo's killers as well as the interesting view into the life of deaf women during the Regency Period. 3.75 stars or 4.25 romance stars.
Very enjoyable third book to the Stud Club series. Lily and Julian make a lovely couple and the mystery surrounding Leo's murder is finally uncovered. The twists and turns in the plot kept me guessing all the way through. Lily and Julian have many layers to their characters that peel away as more is revealed about them. Both dealing with issues from their pasts, they show a good deal of inner strength as they navigate unfortunate situations. All three of the Stud Club books are wonderful and I recommend reading them in order.
While I thought the first two books in this series were better written, I was excited to finally read Julian and Lily's story. Having the antagonist become the hero is always a bit of fun. The ending to the whodunit murder mystery was a bit contrived and forced, but the love story was sweet and honest. Character and dialogue is where Ms. Dare thrives.
Three Nights with a Scoundrel is the third book in a very good trilogy. You must read all three because a murder mystery runs through each story and it won't make since if you do not read them all in order, but don't be cheap, order all three books at the same time because you won't be able to stop till the end of book three! Enjoy!
This novel is the third in a trilogy. Definitely best to read the trilogy in order. This book ultimately resolves a mystery thread throughout the trilogy, but the mystery is not the draw or main focus of the book. It is a pretty solid regency-era romance, with an hero with an interesting background.
