SUTTON'S SPINSTER by Scarlett Scott

A Reader's Opinion

Oh, my gosh! This book was on fire. The blissfully sinful moments when Octavia is wrapped in Jasper's arms are exquisite, delightful, and oh-so-wicked. Scarlett Scott, thank you for allowing me to live out my fantasies in this book.

I couldn’t get enough of these two, plus there’s a great story along with the romance. I found the struggle as a single independent woman during the period difficult for one and all, and the author did a nice job showing the struggle. Octavia fought for what she wanted, and when pushed to a wall, she outwitted and outplayed her opponents.

The characters are so captivating. The twins were my favorite, along with Hugh. I surprised myself by not getting frustrated from reading the characters' dialects, and credit goes to the author for how easily she weaved the readers into the language.

Now, let’s discuss our leading man, Jasper. Think of him as a smooth, illustrious, dominating male lion on the prowl for his lioness. The many moments he thought about playing between the sheets were a lot of fun. Let’s sum him up with this: Jasper is a very naughty; naughty boy.

I give this book my personal two snaps and a twist. Until next time my fellow readers… read on!

Sutton's Spinster

Jasper Sutton, London’s most dedicated scoundrel, needs a wife. He needs one quickly. He needs one yesterday, in fact. His requirements are precise. She has to be capable of mothering the wild twin daughters who have unexpectedly appeared in his life. She must also possess the patience of a saint and the understanding of an angel. Better still if she is plain and has no expectation of a true marriage. He is not about to reform his ways. But how is he to find such a paragon of womanly virtue when a troublesome, maddening baggage keeps haunting his gaming hell and getting herself into scrapes?

Lady Octavia Alexander, the ton’s most dedicated spinster, has no need of a husband. She is quite firmly and happily on the shelf, a devoted aunt to her beloved nieces and nephews. But she does harbor one illicit dream: she wants to start her own newspaper devoted solely to scandal and gossip. What better way to do so than to immerse herself in the sordid underworld of the East End? There is just one problem standing in the way of her plans, and his name is Jasper Sutton. But Octavia won’t abandon her independence and her future for an unscrupulous rogue. No matter how handsome he is, and regardless of how irresistible his kisses.

Between running his family’s gaming hell, chasing after his wayward daughters, and keeping Lady Octavia from being robbed, spirited away by some enterprising criminal, or worse, Jasper is losing his patience. Even more concerning? He’s beginning to fear the only woman he truly wants to marry is the vexing lady who has sworn she will never wed. All he has to do is change her mind and win her heart.
