"Alexandra Benedict has a gift for storytelling."

-Cathy Maxwell

A rich and sensuous story that carries the reader from the dark and dangerous underworld to the gleaming halls of society, The Notorious Scoundrel is another sizzling and edgy read from the extraordinarily talented Alexandra Benedict. The second book in her Hawkins Brothers series featuring a family of former pirates navigating their way through London society, The Notorious Scoundrel is a novel reminiscent of the early works of Stephanie Laurens-a tale brimming with sensuality and intrigue, featuring a darkly mysterious hero and red hot love scenes, that fans of Suzanne Enoch and Cathy Maxwell will absolutely adore.

Back cover copy

Like an irresistible siren, the veiled dancer with the bewitching green eyes lures dukes and earls down into London's underworld to see her dance--and succumb to her spell. Some say she's a princess, but only one man knows her darkest secret.

She is Amy Peel, an orphan from the city's rookeries, and she believes the bold rogue who unmasks her to be nothing but a scoundrel--albeit a dangerously handsome one. He may have rescued her from an attempted kidnapping, but she will not give in to his sensual seduction or to the wicked desire she begins to feel . . .

He is Edmund Hawkins, swashbuckling pirate turned reluctant gentleman, and he will not let the lovely Amy slip through his grasp, especially when he learns she's in greater peril than she could possibly know. He will do everything in his power to protect her--for this notorious scoundrel has truly, unbelievably, lost his heart . . .
