Engrossing tale full of dark and honest emotion.

The Scoundrel's Honor - Christi Caldwell
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Penelope is an adventurous spirit trying to fit into the ton. She wants to be different than the rest of her family. She flees the taunts only to find herself in a compromising position with Ryker. Ryker believes that he is irredeemable but Penelope sees beneath his pain and loneliness. Tempers flare, secrets come out, passion arises until hearts are laid bare. The honesty of the writing, the descriptions, the danger pulled me into the story, and I needed a couple tissues at the end. I highly recommend this book.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and it is a Book Obsessed Chicks Star Review selection. This is my unsolicited review.
