Product Description

When Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, plays matchmaker, true love can seem like a curse. . .

Lord Wastrel--the most notorious rake in London--has a child? Clearly he knows how to sire one, but he has no idea how to actually raise one. He has to learn quickly, since he is the little girl's only surviving parent, and he's determined to find a wife who can be a suitable mother. All he needs is someone demure, and biddable, and most importantly, scandal-free.

Lady Felicia Selby is no stranger to scandal, thanks to her numerous failed elopements and Society's insatiable curiosity about her misadventures. She has devoted many years to finding her one true love, desperate to escape the consequences of the family curse if she fails. But she has begun to give up hope.

Then, one evening, a chance encounter with Aphrodite changes everything.

2.0 out of 5 stars PINCH PINCH PINCH! 28 December 2014
By Kimberlee Jewell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The premise of this book sounded fun- the goddess Aphrodite involving herself in matchmaking- but the story fell short for me. The heroine was so childish and annoying. When she wasn't pinching someone, she was attempting to pinch, threatening to pinch, or thinking about pinching- on and on and on! She had also attempted to elope numerous times, and not only was she not ruined, she was IDOLIZED for doing so! Completely unrealistic for those times! The Hero was fine, but he and the heroine completely indulged his illegitimate daughter in every way, She was introduced to the Ton during an outing, and the heroines brother, a Duke, kisses her hand, ensuring her INSTANT acceptance for all time- also completely unrealistic.I read the first book in this series (a novella) and thought it was cute, so I looked forward to this longer book (still under 200 pages), but I won't continue on with the series- I just don't care about the rest of the characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars, Heroine really is flighty 5 January 2015
By Melissa - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lord Wastrel is a mish mash of ideas thrown together, like family curses, gods and goddesses and elopements to name a few. Sometimes these tropes work, sometimes they don't. This book is part of a series and I might have enjoyed this more if I had read the earlier novel. It felt like I came in the second act of the play without fully understanding all the characters.

Lady Felicia is known as Flighty Felicia with good reason. She is forever eloping, convinced that her latest beau is her true love because that's just how her family is supposed to fall in love, quickly and forever and Felicia wants to hurry it along. Her reputation for some reason has never suffered for these escapades. She suddenly falls for her brother's friend Lord Wastrel also known as Lord Hugh, problem is he is already engaged to a very nice woman.

Hugh has found the least scandalous woman to marry. He has a young daughter and he wants a good mother for her. Lady Felicia asks him to marry her at his own betrothal ball to another woman. She is again living up to her namesake, flighty Felicia.

Hugh then begins to think of Felicia all the time and he just cannot marry her because she is not all together proper and since his parents gave the ton something to talk about, he is determined to be a better parent. He has changed his ways. The reader never sees him as a rakehell, we are only told about his past.

I found Lady Felicia to be a bit annoying. She has a very nasty habit of pinching people, to the point of pain. She enjoys inflicting some pain when she is upset, does not get her way or is generally perturbed with someone. This habit was not endearing.

There are some Gods in this story and I wish a little more time would have been devoted to them. Apparently they appeared in another book but they pop in and out without a lot of explanation. Are they condemned to this world, how long have they been here, where do they live? These questions were left unanswered.

There was not a lot of tension between the leads and I never felt like they emoted that well. Felecia is more obsessed with a curse than she is with people and Hugh either over or under reacting. The reader is given no background about his betrothed. Hugh shows great emotion for his daughter, this is his best trait, he is a good father. Hugh wanted to keep Felicia at arm's distance but his reasoning was rather weak and so was his will. The leads have passion but this story felt finished by the middle of the novel and then the tension dropped considerably.

*4.5 Stars*

Aphrodite and Ares are at it again!

Lord Wastel was even more delightful than Lord Rakehell! Longer in length, the added character development really enhanced the story. And the addition of a strong-willed, cherubic 4-year old was a treat!

We met Felicia and Hugh in book 1, as they are best friends to Georgiana and Simon, respectively. Felicia, known as Flighty Felicia to the ton, has been endeavoring to find her one true love, by eloping every two weeks, to escape a family curse. She is very dismayed to realize Lord Wastel -- Hugh -- is her fated match. Not only because she's known him most of her life, but also because he's engaged to another woman!

Hugh, Lord Weyson, has recently discovered he's a father. In an attempt to provide his daughter a loving home and a strong family unit, he's sought out a staid woman to take as his wife. Things don't go exactly as he'd planned when Felicia begins her undaunted pursuit of him.

Felicia and Hugh are both prone to scandal and are both very strong-willed. This made for an entertaining courtship. The repartee between the two was witty and humorous -- Felicia is not a shrinking violet and never shied away from giving Hugh her opinion or a well-deserved pinch. She knew she loved Hugh but it took awhile for Hugh to realize his feelings.

Seeing both Felicia and Hugh with Lucinda, Hugh's daughter, was an absolute joy. Lucinda is equally as head-strong as her Papa and new Mama. She melted everyone's heart including mine. I could easily envision her using her bright eyes and adorable smiles to win whatever she desired of her parents.

This is a series I adore. I enjoy watching Aphrodite and Are playing at matchmaking -- and the love matches they make are charming, amusing, and a pleasure to watch unfold. I'm eager to see what Aphrodite has in store for Julian, Felicia's brother, and Tony, her cousin. Oh, and Aunt Aurore, too! It's sure to be uproarious fun!

Loved loved loved this book.A previously unknown daughter is brought to Hugh Longford, Lord Weyson but better known as Lord Wastrel. For his daughter's sake he is determined to change his ways and find a " proper" wife. Felicity Selby of course will not do, but Aphrodite has other plans for him of course.
