About the Book
Lord Alistair Compton could not believe Lady Lacey Lamb had the boldness to cut him in the middle of the Huffingtons’ ball. She flatly refused to stand up with him! He responded the only way a man of his consequence could—by placing a wager at White’s. Lady Ice would fall hopelessly in love with him before the Season was through.
Lacey had never been so appalled, so shocked, so scandalized! How dare the monstrous buffoon treat her so horridly, guaranteeing the gossips banter her name about over a ridiculous wager? It was not to be endured. With the help of her brother, Lord Melbourne, a counter bet was placed, and the stakes were high—for who could resist falling for the lovely bluestocking when she was most definitely in the right?

When she isn't writing up a storm, she is chasing her kids around their new cottage and farm in the tops of the southwestern mountains, entertaining friends at home, or kissing her amazingly hunky hubby. Her life is full of laughter, crazy, and sunshine
As always, Jenni James has written a fun, entertaining, and enjoyable read. As her first regency romance, The Bluestocking and the Dastardly, Intolerable Scoundrel is an absolute delight. This is a tale of a bold young women, Lady Lacey Lamb, that never received her coming out ball due to a family situation. At a recent ball though, she has the audacity to refuse to dance with Lord Melbourne. And so a battle between the two begins, including a crossing of bets placed at White’s. Although the romance in the story is fairly predictable and the romance seems to happen fast, this novel is still entertaining. A clean and humorous romance, previous readers of Jenni’s novels are not going to want to miss this light, fun, and clean regency romance!
