The Scoundrel and the Debutante by Julia London- The Cabot Sisters #3

When a man on a mission takes on a beautiful but unlikely ally, seduction and adventure are inevitable… 

The dust of the Cabot sisters' shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she's tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can't deny the temptation. 
The fate of Roan Matheson's family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he's out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart's obligations and its forbidden desires. 

Struggle, terrible struggle to carry out the first part of the book. 
Following the thoughts and decisions of Prudence  was slightly tough for me and really I don't feel much sympathy for her.
Roan was already my kind of hero from the very beginning. His being a "stranger", an American barbarian land in English land, was a lot of fun. 
Going forward I was able to enjoy a little bit more of their adventure, but it's not a pair that will remain unforgettable for me.
We want to talk about Roan's baby sister? Aurora? After everything her brother does fore her, the poor guy came at the end of the world to prevent her from ruining herself alone because of her spirit of adventure, I would call her a real witch. Hateful and mindless.
I'm a little confused due, because I liked the other two books in this series. I am very sorry and I am willing to put a little doubt my common sense, perhaps between me and this book was not love at first sight".
Thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for the kind preview of the book.

Fatica, terribile fatica a portare avanti la prima parte del libro. 
Seguire i pensieri e le decisioni di Prudence mi è risultato un po' pesante e sinceramente non provavo per lei granché di simpatia.
Roan invece era già più nelle mie corde sin dall'inizio. Il suo essere "forestiero", un barbaro americano in terra inglese, è stato da subito molto divertente. 
Andando avanti sono riuscita a gustare un po' di più la loro avventura, ma non è una coppia che per me rimarrà indimenticabile.
Vogliamo parlare della cara sorellina di Roan? Aurora? Dopo quello che combina al fratello, che poveretto è venuto in capo al mondo per evitare che si rovinasse da sola seguendo il suo spirito di avventura, la definirei una vera strega. Odiosa e senza cervello.
E dire che gli altri due libri di questa serie mi erano piaciuti. Mi dispiace molto e sono disposta a mettere un po' in dubbio il mio buon senso, forse proprio tra me e questo libro "non era cosa", come si dice da noi.
Ringrazio Netgalley e per il libro
