Review: When the Scoundrel Sins (Capturing the Carlisles #2) by Anna Harrington


Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she's ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . .

Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He'll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can't control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire.

Well I had wanted to like this book more than I actually did. I loved book one, If the Duke Demands, so I was hoping this would be just as good.  There were some good that happened in this book, but unfortunately there was a lot that just did not work for me.

First the good- the book is well written. I like Anna Harrington’s writing style! There was a few sizzling scenes and some quite funny ones too!

Now the rest- both Quinn and Belle drove me nuts! They’re mixed signals just ticked me off! Either you want her-or you don’t!! We get the gist that Annabelle is a bluestocking-so she reads a lot. You would think she is an intelligent, strong woman-especially running an estate, but no. She totally turns into this puppy dog around Quinn. It was such a contradiction! And Quinn, you ask? Well, what a childish and somewhat selfish man! The push me, pull me he does with Belle, was too much. He wanted to help her, but couldn’t do it. His reasons, in my opinion, were weak. I wanted to ring his neck! It goes back and forth throughout this entirely too long book,  I really liked them together, but they just couldn’t find their footing so the story went sideways for me.

I do want to read the next book in the Capturing the Carlisles series as it is Robert’s story.  I hope it’s as good as book one!
