The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel by Jennifer McQuiston is 99c! This is part of the Seduction Diaries series and readers are divided on whether they eventually warmed up to the hero. Jennifer’s podcast interviews on the site is one of my faves because she’s so fascinating. New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston continues her enchanting Seduction Diaries series as a bookish spinster and an unrepentant rogue unite to unmask a traitor Every girl dreams of a hero . . .

When she unexpectedly finds herself in the arms of Geoffrey Westmore, London’s most notorious scoundrel, it feels a bit like a plot from one of her favorite novels.

Welcome back to Cover Snark! This is where we stumble across some very striking book covers and proceed to snark on them.
