The Blades of the Rose are sworn to protect the sources of magic in the world. But the work is dangerous--and they can't always protect their own. . .

Ready For Action

London Harcourt's father is bent on subjugating the world's magic to British rule. But since London is a mere female, he hasn't bothered to tell her so. He's said only that he's leading a voyage to the Greek isles. No matter, after a smothering marriage and three years of straitlaced widowhood, London jumps at the opportunity--unfortunately, right into the arms of Bennett Day.

Risking It All

Bennett is a ladies' man, when he's not dodging lethal attacks to protect the powers of the ancients from men like London's father. Sometimes, he's a ladies' man even when he is dodging them. But the minute he sees London he knows she will require his full attention. The woman is lovely, brilliant, and the only known speaker of a dialect of ancient Greek that holds the key to calling down the wrath of the gods. Bennett will be risking his life again--but around London, what really worries him is the danger to his heart. . .

Scoundrel is the second book from The Blades of the Rose series. In this book, Bennett, a womanizer met his match and found himself captivated by London Harcourt, a widow. London was also the daughter of the Blades’ sworn enemy called the Heirs. 

I love the book right from the start. Bennett sounds really delicious and I love his playful personality and London is an intelligent woman who was not afraid of danger. They met without knowing each other’s’ identity. Imagine what happened when Bennett found out that London’s father was his sworn enemy. And what happened when London found out that Bennett was the reason she was husbandless. I love the character (and the supporting character, the witch and the captain), their personality and how they slowly changed as the story move along.

Reading Scoundrel reminds me a little bit of Indiana Jones with the adventure plus more romance and hot scene. Although I must say that I love the hot scene in the first book, Warrior a little bit more. I love Zoe Archer’s writing style. It was easy to read and the pace was good. I’m looking forward to read the next book, Rebel!
