What the Heck Wednesday {The Rogue Not Taken}

Hey y'all,

Since it is February and the month celebrates love, I think it's appropriate to share my most recent read. I have been a fan of romance novels ever since my Mom gave me a Nora Roberts book in middle school. I have always been a hopeless romantic and escaping into a book that ends with a couple living happily ever after is always great in my mind. 

I recently read Sarah MacLean's  Rules of Scoundrels series which I enjoyed immensely and so the start of a new series entitled the Scandal & Scoundrel (in the same world of the Rules of Scoundrels) had me intrigued. The first book in the series came out in December and it was a nice quick read this past weekend.

The youngest of the infamous Talbot sisters scandalized society at the Liverpool Summer Soiree, striking her sister’s notoriously philandering husband and landing him backside-first in a goldfish pond. And we thought Sophie was the quiet one…
When she finds herself the target of very public aristocratic scorn, Sophie Talbot does what she must to escape the city and its judgment—she flees on the back of a carriage, vowing never to return to London…or to society. But the carriage isn’t saving her from ruin. It’s filled with it.
The Marquess of Eversley was espied descending a rose trellis—escaping an irate Earl and his once-future countess. No lady is safe from Eversley’s Engagement Ending Escapades!
Kingscote, the Marquess of Eversley, has never met a woman he couldn’t charm, a quality that results in a reputation far worse than the truth, a furious summons home, and a long, boring trip to the Scottish border. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the trip becomes anything but boring.
He thinks she’s trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn’t have him if he were the last man on earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, and suddenly opposites are altogether too attractive…

My Opinion
I loved the character of Sophie, she merely wants to leave London and run a bookstore in the country but her plans take a bit of a turn when she ends up on the back of King's carriage. I thought the banter was a lot of fun and I as usual was so invested that I was laughing throughout the book and bawling near the end. For a nice, quick, feel good read I would pick this up again!
