Despite the rather misleading title (our hero isn't a scoundrel, and there aren't that many midnight pleasures), Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel is a very enjoyable book. The romance isn't spoiled by big misunderstandings or other awkward plot devices to keep hero and heroine apart. Instead, hero and heroine are together, although they both know there may not be a future for them.

Eleanor Watkins is planning to avenge her sister's death by killing the man who shamed her sister, causing her to commit suicide. Eleanor needs to stalk Lord Rockberry to find the opportune time to kill him, but she senses that she is being stalked, too. The man following her turns out to be Inspector James Swindler, an honorable and successful police detective. James is surprised he's been given such an unimportant job as shadowing the young woman, but once he meets her properly his interest is piqued.

When Rockberry is killed, more secrets are being revealed - secrets they both carry that explain their actions - but can their love survive?

Hero and heroine in Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel are both very appealing characters. Author Lorraine Heath gradually reveals James's history so we begin to understand him more. A clever plot twist in the middle of the story is quite unexpected but works well. A few other twists in the storyline keep it an interesting read, and the characterization of the grieving sister and of James was believable. This is a very worthwhile book for those who like light romances.
