Publisher's Summary

Lady Ophelia Darby exists in two worlds. In one, she is the impudent, willful daughter of a powerful marquess and darling of the ton. In the other, she moves through the underworld's shadows as songstress Lady Starlight, protected only by the notoriously wealthy scoundrel Devlin Byrne. But when she stumbles upon her beloved father's darkest secrets, the line between her two worlds quickly blurs. Now she needs the help of the one man a lady should never trust.

Devlin Byrne stands on the edge of London society, knowing he will never be accepted. No one else knows that his obscene wealth and ruthlessness aren't without purpose. Or that his purpose has golden-brown eyes that shimmer with mischief, the palest of skin, and a lush mouth that beckons to be kissed, and deeply. But having Ophelia is only the beginning of Devlin's plans.

It's undeniable that Devlin Byrne is a dangerous temptation—but just as Ophelia begins to trust him, maybe even fall for him, she discovers she's not the only one with secrets. And his would lead her down more than just the path of scandal . . .

Contains mature themes.

Terrible narration

The story was good, I'm a sucker for a childhood friends to lovers, but the narrator almost made this unbearable to finish. I regret spending my money on this, wishing I'd just stuck with the e-book. I had to speed it up to even tolerate hearing her voice. Just awful.

I can't

I love Stacy Reid and I have been praying for her to switch narrators for a very long time but if Mary Sarah is a permanent fixture here I will have to sadly skip Stacy Reid's audio books. I just cannot even bare Mary Sarah's inflection.. it's grating.. I have unfortunately had to miss.out of so many great books because of her it's not fair. this book is a great book if you can get past the narration

A new favorite!

I’ve loved every book I’ve read by Stacy Reid, but A Scoundrel of Her Own is a new favorite. Devlin Byrne’s steadfast, vulnerable, endearing love for Ophelia has made him one of my all-time favorite historical romance heroes. I enjoy all historical romance tropes, but I REALLY love a story whose character’s conflict is handled with honesty, maturity, and character consistency, and this book does that until the very end.

The story begins with Ophelia and Devlin forming an intense but short friendship as children and reconnecting later in life, with what felt like an unrequited love element. It’s set up should have felt unrealistic, or lacking foundation, but the emotional depth always felt so genuine and well developed. Identities are secrets are revealed early on, so the relationship conflict centers around classism. I highly recommend.

I did not love the narrator. By the end she got better, or I adjusted, but I’m particular about narration, so I gave a generous three stars.
