The Soldier’s Scoundrel by Cat Sebastian

4 yes-please stars.

The Soldier’s Scoundrel was terrific enough that I pre-ordered her next book, which is a big leap for me to take on a new-to-me author.

Some of what worked so well:
The tension between Jack and Oliver is perfectly crafted, and it’s delightful watching Oliver step in his assumptions over and over. Their attraction was totally believable and both managed to be strong characters with compelling motivations. The plot itself was well-paced and kept me turning the pages, but was not so over-packed as to distract from the interactions between the characters.

I hope to see many more like this from Cat Sebastian.
