But until the end, I didn't connect with her.
Salvation for Never Surrender to a Scoundrel came in the form of the male protagonist, Kincraig. He is honorable, loving, and kind. I say kind because no matter how provoked he was, he never slurred Clarissa and even became protective of him. I so rarely like just one protagonist in a story because what draws me to the historical romance genre is the love story between the two leads. But the 'injustices' that Kincraig went through pulled me to the story and made me want to know what will happen to him until the end.
There is a mystery element in the story that was drawn out, but the ending felt a little anti-climactic in that it was resolved too quickly. But then again, Never Surrender to a Scoundrel is more romance than mystery, so it's not that big of a deal.
All in all, Never Surrender to a Scoundrel was good, but it didn't leave me gloriously excited like I hoped it would.
Have you read any good historical romance books lately? I'm really in need of some recommendations!
