    1. No me ha gustado, me ha parecido una historia, tópica y un sin sentido total. Los personajes sin chispa y el amor ha sido algo muy físico e instalove total. A ver, en realidad, creo que la autora ha juntado una serie de situaciones "hot" que no cuadran ni con calzador en la época en la que transcurre la historia. Ha cambiado totalmente el personaje de Prudence. Roan me ha parecido una caricatura, la verdad, y lo podría entender más si fuera de otro sitio que no New York, vamos que ni que al [...]

    2. "Well, Prudence?" he asked as his gaze slid to her mouth, his expression reminding her of a man who had not eaten all day and was seeing a morsel before him. "What have you to say for yourself? Now your adventure has become mine."I haven't read the previous Cabot sisters' books but I had no problem diving right in to this one; the author does a good job of summarizing why Prudence is acting the way she is here because of her sisters' previous actions. The bulk of the story and Prudence and Roan' [...]

    3. Review-The Scoundrel and the Debutante Summary Prudence Cabot, knows that her future is looking more bleak than ever. With the two scandals that her two older sisters have caused, Prudence has no prospects or suitors, and she knows that she will end up a spinster. She is tired of seeing her family embracing their husband and children, without realizing what their actions have done to her. So when she has an opportunity to have a adventure for the first time in her life, she takes it. She then m [...]

    4. Truth be told, I am very happy that I am now done with the Cabot sisters. The older 2 Cabot sisters, Honor and Grace, continued to annoy me in this book, even though their appearances were sporadic. Prudence, the "good" 3rd sister with shining beauty, takes a turn at love in this book with an American. I like Prudence. I KNOW Prudence, because I AM Prudence (sans shining beauty, to my regret): Always doing the right things and never having fun but never being rewarded for the good behaviors. Pru [...]

    5. Available nowGoodness, this book made me nuts. I did finish it, but was not fond at all. If you like characters who constantly fall into predicaments because of making bad choices, then you may like it very much. I do realize that not every book is written for every reader, and that has to be the case here.First, Prudence has had two seasons. How can she still be considered a debutante? deb·u·tanteˈdebyəˌtänt/nounan upper-class young woman making her first appearance in fashionable society [...]

    6. Good writing (as expected from London), though the insta-love comes off as a bit too strong. The conflict is mainly from the insta-love and two people who are from different countries other words, not strong either. But it's a decent read nonetheless. The characters are likable.

    7. This third book in Julia London’s Cabot Sisters series is set around four years after the first two. In those, the eldest two of the four sisters - Honor and Grace - found love (and husbands) in rather unconventional ways which led to much scandal and gossip, leaving their younger sisters, Prudence and Mercy, rather tarred with the same brush.For her part, Mercy is not particularly bothered, being focused on making a career as an artist and caught up with all the excitement of getting ready fo [...]

    8. Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyThe Scoundrel and the Debutante is book three in Julia London's Cabot Sisters Series. The story of four sisters worried about finding a place. Knowing that their stepfather is dying, their mother is fading to some sort of dementia and their stepbrother is planning to marry a woman who would prefer to not have to see them around at least not to have to pay for them to be around.The first two book dealt with women who weren't perfec [...]

    9. I've given this an A for narration and a B- for content at AudioGals, so I'm knocking the grade up to 4 stars for the audiobook version.The Scoundrel and the Debutante is the third in the series of books about the four Cabot sisters that began in The Trouble With Honor. The first two books saw the eldest two sisters, Honor and Grace, find love and happiness, albeit in rather unconventional ways – Honor proposed to her lover in front of a crowd at a gaming den, and Grace set out to trap a man i [...]

    10. Ah Roan *soupirs* un américain dépassé pas la subtilité des accents (weslay, wesleigh, pas pareil xD), qui croit que tous les lord et lady font partie de la royauté xD Qu'il est chou ❤️Et Prudence est cool, elle en a marre des convenances et quitte à devenir vieille fille, autant s'offrir une petite aventure juste parce l'américain est TROP BEAU Des fois faut pas réflechir hein xDEnfin bref ensemble ils sont mignons, et ils se protègent l'un l'autre durant leurs péripéties *aaaaw [...]

    11. This was beautiful. Just wonderful ! It's an unusual love story with a heroine who throws conventional caution to the winds to enjoy a once in a lifetime fling with the man of her dreams. This couple had a very unconventional journey of love that was so sweet, sexy and filled with pathos because they both know that family obligations mean that they may not be able to end up together. Prudence is my second fav of the Cabot sisters, after Grace ( and Grace is my fav because she has a dog named Bot [...]

    12. Penelope has always been the "good" Cabot sister on the straight and narrow following the scandals brought to the family by her older sisters, but she's done with it. She wants to finally live and see what all the fuss is all about. Guilty by association anyway, so why shouldn't she live? On her way to a friend's estate to see her beloved friend and new baby, Penelope get waylaid by a handsome American in search of his wayward sister who remained in England instead of returning home to fulfill h [...]

    13. I cried, I laughed, I sighed, and I worried. I swear I was an emotional wreck and that made me happy! I love books that wring all these emotions from me because it absorbs my attention completely. I live and breath the world the author has created. We all know the ending will be happy but the journey to that ending is what distinguishes a great author from a good one. The scandals surrounding the older Cabot sisters' marriages have tainted Prudence Cabot's chances of a good marriage. Matter of f [...]

    15. Quickie Review--Not bad at all! I loved Roan! Burly America who was so out of place traveling across England in search of his oh so trying sister. Such a very lickable bit of man. *noms* And I very much felt for Pru though she made me shake my head many times. I had a great time with them though and enjoyed their bumbling adventures. Full review--An out-of-his-element American who's burly, grumbly. searching England--unsuccessfully-- for his runaway sister, and has oh so wide shoulders. Really. [...]

    16. "Dearest Prudence,It is three o'clock in the morning, and there is very little left of the candle. As I've lain in Bed, feeling the space beside me cold and empty, I composed a brilliant letter to you in my mind, one that I believe adequately conveyed my feelings for you. But when I rose to put pen to paper, all the elegance of my thoughts was lost. I am utterly incapable of describing the depth and breadth of my feelings. Is it love? I think it is, but I am no scholar when it comes to the heart [...]

    17. The Scoundrel and the Debutante is the third in Julia London's Cabot Sisters series and just as good as the first two books. It stands alone really well but it's worth reading the other two books first both for context and because they, too, are really good books.I really liked the way this book sneaked up on me. It started quite benignly with Prudence Cabot preparing to visit a friend who had recently given birth, but before long her adventure begins and what an adventure it is!I identified wit [...]

    18. This could have been a pretty good story if not for some editing issues and and historical inaccuracies. It's a different writing style than some of her other series, which I enjoyed until the word "cock" jumped out of the page (I know that's being picky, but it just didn't seem to fit). Below are a few of the issues that kept distracting me through the book, but if you're not interested in the details, this book is a solid three stars. Where are the chaperones? Pru doesn't have one, ever, and R [...]

    19. Roan amused me, "see? Right as rain," he said breathlessly, and threw a heavy arm around her shoulders. "Where's the gun? We should keep it close, I think. And the knife, if you can find it." Prudence she's a curious little thing when it comes to her man, "Prudence startled him by popping up and smiling down at him. "Do you think thatMightn't we do this all over again? It's not morning, is it?" I liked how these two negotiate with each other: Roan grinned and nipped at her bottom lip. "Will you [...]

    20. This was a 3.5 bumped up to a 4 star because of fab narrating by the talented Rosalyn Landor! A sweet, light little story about a young English miss on the lookout for excitement. Enter a large, handsome American and we have a perfect recipe for disaster! It's all rather far fetched but as this is romance land I suppose anything goes. Rosalyn Landor has the most incredible range of voices - I would go so far as to say possibly the best I have heard. She does female and male equally well and when [...]

    21. Prudence knows she´s not coveted on the marriage scene after all the scandals surrounding the Cabot name, so when she gets a chance to do something for herself, she jumps in with both feet first. Meeting a stranger, from America to boot, the temptation is too much, and she promptly joins him on an adventure via horse carriage all over the country. Roan is in England to fetch back his sister and not really looking for anything else, until he encounters the lovely Prudence who seems to be up to s [...]

    22. I've never been disappointed by a Julia London book before this one but I spent the majority of it feeling awkward and uncomfortable reading through the endless encounters for the hero and the heroine. I found it difficult for cheer for them since there were so many poor decisions being made throughout the book. Frankly I couldn't force myself to finish it. Hoping that the last book in this series is an easier and more enjoyable read.

    23. DNF at 60%Julia London is one of my favorite authors, so the fact that I couldn't even finish this book, came as a surprise to me. It's not bad writing or lack of chemistry that made this unreadeable, it's the sheer lack of plot and consistency with the time era that made me put it down. If this was written as a contemporary romance, I think it could be a very nice book.

    24. I loved how Julia London wrapped all three stories together although it would seem a bit far fetched for three sisters to be as “brave” as they were. Prudence’s search for adventure is one thing but her decision in the lake seemed a bit pushy for me. Other than that, the romance was great.

    25. I received The Scoundrel and the Debutante for free in exchange for an honest review.I really need to get better at writing reviews for the books I read, whether or not I feel like it. Case in point is book 1 of the Cabot Sisters series, which I read and remember nothing of. It's not that I lost anything by it, really, just that I spent more time trying to figure out what had happened in book 1. Never did figure that out. Which is vexing because it wasn't the series I thought it was, which got [...]

    26. This was such a great book! Julia London has struck gold again! While I haven’t read the other books in this series, I was totally captivated by the wonderful love and adventure that features Prudence and Roan. It was fun, on-the-road story that is fast paced and filled with witty dialogue and passionate embraces.Roan is American. I adored that he was a Yankee and his accent was a problem. He ends up in the wrong part of England because he gets ‘West Lee’, ‘Westleigh’ and ‘Weslay’ [...]

    27. This book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review. _My review is below.Well, I finally read the third Cabot Sisters book. _I knew I needed to read it but I was using it as a way to get me over a slump. _It didn't help. _While I enjoyed both Honor's and Grace's books for different reasons (The books are very different.), this one I did not enjoy at all. _It started with the fact that both Honor and Grace had a callous disregard for Prudence's feelings. _Both had adventures and the hu [...]

    28. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but I’m sad to say that this third installment was not as much of a win for me. I’ve never been a fan of insta-love, but the romance here happened at such warp speed, it left me shaking my head. Three days. They were in love in three days. They were getting busy even before that. I understand that our heroine was trying to have a little adventure, but this story just trampled all over my suspension of disbelief with her behavior, which fit [...]

    29. ARC REVIEW Book Three of Julia London's Cabot Sister's series. It really can be read as a stand alone the first two books play an important part but nothing that isn't explained simply, and it you have read the previous books it's not redundant. Prudence has to be my favorite sister she was the level headed one and is suffering because her older sister's actions. Roan is an American lost in England trying to track down his wayward sister and take her back to America so she can make an advantageo [...]

    30. Prudence Cabot – sensible, courteous, impeccable Prudence – has always done exactly as society demands of her. Unfortunately for her, the antics and scandals created by her two older sisters overshadow all of Prudence ‘s attempts to be the “good one.” While waiting for the carriage that will take her to an out-of-town friend, she is provided an opportunity for adventure and spontaneity in the form of a handsome stranger in need of help – Mr. Roan Matheson. Roan is in desperate search [...]
