Overview

The bastard son of a nobleman, Finn Trewlove was a shameful secret raised by a stranger. As Finn came of age he had secrets, too—the clandestine nights spent with an earl’s daughter. But her promise of forever ended in betrayal.

Driven by a past that haunts her, Lady Lavinia Kent seeks redemption in London’s underworld, engaged in a daring cause inspired by the young man to whom she gave her innocence, and who then proved himself a scoundrel by abandoning her.

When their paths cross again, they can’t deny the yearning and desire that still burns. As they discover the truth behind the deceptions that tore them apart, Finn and Lavinia must fight to reclaim what they’ve lost, no matter how dangerous—because love is worth the risk….

A romance filled with passion, pain, redemption and love. Moved me to tears at points and had me rooting for these two characters. Loved it and highly recommend.

I had heard the rich gave their unwanted children to servants or other childless couples to raise most received no money for their care some were well cared for others not so lucky I'm glad the book had a happy ending

This is the seventh book by this author that I read within the last two months. I loved all of the last six. But this one... too much time on the past, too slow in the developement of the present. The story just rambled on for me. Not sure I will read any more of this series.

Another good one from Lorraine Heath. Vivi and Finn's story. Just incredible how these people got rid of their unwanted children. I had never heard the term baby farmers before reading her books. At times this book made me so sad. Thank goodness I knew a happy ending was coming. Love the Trewlove family.

How on earth have I missed this series? Must go back and read the first two, because I need more Trewlove(s) in my life... ;) The Scoundrel in Her Bed is a second chance romance, which can be tricky to pull off. To be honest, I wasn't at all sure for the first part of the book that Ms. Heath could convincingly show how they were originally separated in a way that would allow each to have blamed the other for eight years, firmly convinced that they had been left by the other person when in reality neither was to blame. Thankfully, she pulled it off--though we don't even really start to get the details until about a third of the way in. I thought Ms. Heath did an excellent job of showing how the past eight years have changed Lavinia and Finn--they're not the same people they were when they first met and (slowly, thank goodness--they were so young!) fell in love. I also appreciated that she had them both wonder at times if they even could have made it back then, had their original plans worked (very much up in the air; they both needed those years apart to grow up); it felt very realistic. I loved the cause that Lavinia ended up devoting her life to, even though how she originally carried out her plans was beyond risky--how Ms. Heath has her realize her dream in the end was brilliant. (And I give her a standing ovation for the difficult choice she has Vivi make along the way--it was absolutely the right one, and she made it just in time.) Besides Vivi and Finn together, some of the best parts of this book are watching all of the Trewlove siblings together--I can't wait to watch as all of the siblings find their HEA! Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The Sins of all Seasons series revolves around the Trewlove siblings, all except one born on the wrong side of the blanket and sold to a baby farmer. Oftentimes they are illegitimate children of aristocrats who want to be rid of them. The baby farmer either takes those babies in (rarely) or disposes of it. Yes, that's right. Finn Trewlove and his brothers and sisters were raised by Ettie Trewlove and never lacked the love of a mother. Ironically, Lavinia, born into an aristocratic family, never felt the love of her parents because hers were everything but loving. At their hands she experienced so much pain and sadness that her soul still bears the scars. Because of her history, which in its entirety comes to light two thirds into the story, she has taken it on herself to buy babies off of baby farmers to put them in a nun orphanage in Whitechapel - an admirable and noble cause. She feels a deep need to save those children. After years of separation Finn saves her from a tricky and dangerous situation and all the hurt of his not showing, when they were to get married secretly, comes rushing back magnified. Finn learned in the previous book that Lavinia was roaming the streets of Whitechapel. After their run-in he can't avoid facing the fact that there are still unresolved feelings between them, anger at her betrayal being at the forefront. The truth how they were separated is being revealed in the first half of the book which removes some of the anxiety between Finn and Lavinia, but not all. Vivi was a naive, spirited and bright young girl when she fell in love with Finn and she acted like it. After they were separated she grew up the hard way. She wasn't judgmental towards or felt above commoners which I really loved about her but I felt that her denial to let Finn back in a little too flimsy and drawn out. She knew that he was a solid, reliable man who would never hurt her. At the end of the story was a situation that actually got me pretty riled up with her. It made her look like a spoiled brat who hadn't learned a thing. I still liked Lavinia, she'd gone through a lot of heartbreak and betrayal at the hands of her family, and that still lingered. It was incredibly sad to see how much agony it still caused her. Finn was the best. He was honorable, sensitive, sweet as candy, a little dirty and so honest. Finn was simply a good man who wanted to move on.  He, too, went through a lot after the supposed betrayal but the thought of revenge crossed his mind only a short time. When he is reunited with Vivi he wants to rediscover this matured woman he knew as a hopeful girl and is utterly delighted with her. His feelings for Vivi evolves from the memory of their deep but naive connection when they were both so incredibly young to a mature and intense love. Lorraine Heath knows how to pull heartstrings and shred said organ to pieces. I have loved every single story by her. Her stories have a lyrical but not too flowery feel to them (which I love) and she is an expert in building up anxiety for the couple and make you root for them. There is also always a fascinating social component that was contemporary at the time that makes you take a critical look at the romanticized times of Victorian/Regency/Georgian era and compare it to today's practices. THE SCOUNDREL IN HER BED was a lovely addition to this series and got me excited about Aiden's story.

I received an eARC at no cost from the author, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you. I’m having a hard time rating this book. I love Lorraine Heath, and the fact that she likes to talk about difficult issues in her books. But in this one, I think something was…maybe holding her back? I don’t know, I feel like it had something missing. This is a lovers-reunited/second-chance lovers story. I have to admit, I didn’t feel very connected to the characters. I liked the young version, I did not, however, enjoy their transition. And, again, I think this has to do with the way the author dealt with their problems. It’s hard to do a review without talking about something that does not show up in the synopsis, and therefore it is a spoiler, but that is the base of your concerns with the book. Finn had a difficult life, and Lavinia was sheltered, as any nobility-born lady. But as they spend their together, she gets to know a different world. And then something happens that separates them. When they meet again, they are different people, but still harbour some of the same feelings they had years before. I did not like Lavinia – I’m sorry, she went through a lot, I know, but I just couldn’t connect with her. Finn, on the other hand, was much easier to like and understand. I only liked Lavinia when she was young, and when she makes a right decision at the end of the book. I would, however, like to point out, she is doing her best to help those who need it, and I value that trait, no doubt. I really liked Finn’s family, and I look forward to reading more their stories, even if this wasn’t my favourite book written by Lorraine Heath.
