Summary

In Tessa Dare's dazzling new trilogy, the men of the Stud Club live and play by their own rules - until passion changes the game.

The bastard son of a nobleman, Julian Bellamy is now polished to perfection, enthralling the town with wit and charm while clandestinely plotting to ruin the lords, ravish the ladies, and have the last laugh on a society that once spurned him. But after meeting Leo Chatwick, a decent man and founder of an elite gentlemen's club, and Lily, Leo's enchanting sister, Julian reconsiders his wild ways. And when Leo's tragic murder demands that Julian hunt for justice, he vows to see the woman he secretly loves married to a man of her own class.

Lily, however, has a very different husband in mind. She's loved Julian forever, adores the man beneath the rakish façade, and wants to savor the delicious attraction they share - as his wife. His insistence on marrying her off only reinforces her intent to prove that he is the only man for her. Obsessed with catching a killer, Julian sinks back to the gutters of his youth, forcing Lily to reach out with a sweet, reckless passion Julian can't resist. Can her desire for a scoundrel save them both - or will dangerous secrets threaten more than their tender love?

Another absolute winner from Tessa Dare

Compelling and empathetic storyline, interesting and meaty. I would never have guessed the outcome.
The delivery of this audio version by Rosalyn Landor was faultless and superb! Highly recommended.

Well, anyone can produce a duffer

What a disappointment! A tedious, repetitive, turgid, turkey of a story. Rescued only by the excellent Rosalyn Landor. Tessa Dare is capable of brilliant characters, witty repartee and sparkling stories. This is just not an example of it.

Relaxed regency romance with a little twist at the end

A good listening experience with performance not just narration. Characters you can link with in the stories progress

Steamy & Interesting

We finally get to hear Lily & Julian's story.....so I wanted a quick start - seamed to me it was a bit slow moving at first. Once it got going it moved quickly and really kept my interest. This story is full of twists and turns and lots of really steamy love scenes.
Landor does an amazing job (as always) and her "parrot" voice is hilarious!!!

The epilogue was nice - tied it all up in a neat little bow.

Worth a credit - but not for the faint of heart - there are plenty descriptive sex scenes.

Three Nights with a Mystery

Rosalyn Landor did an excellent job with narrating,I was unsure at first because the first book of the trilogy had an awesome narrator aswell,so wasn't sure how this one would measure up,but she did just as awesome with each character.Unfortunately this book wasn't as good"romantically "as the first,plenty of plots and mystery though.I read the second book,it too was more plot and mystery more than romance,so by far..the first of the trilogy was the best of the three,not only a good story but alot of very steamy moments.I enjoyed all three books though and hearing how the three most unlikely men to become friends became more like family to eachother instead.Great books,Tessa is a great Romance writer,one of my favorites.

not my favorite

I sure liked the other two in this series better. things just seemed a little too convenient, at the end. and the mine I heard the Seinfeld quote, that sealed it for me. meh.

Disappointing

What would have made Three Nights with a Scoundrel better?

More action would have been nice. Too much description and repetition. The big mystery was hinted at so much, the reader has it figured out early on. Plus the Leo side-story theme has been done over and over in this genre.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tessa Dare again?

Definitely. I love most all of the books by her that I have read.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes with the bird were good.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

Would like to see more of the issues covered that most people dealt with back in the 18th and 19th centuries as opposed to filtering in the issues of the 20th and 21st centuries (our issues). After all, my whole point in reading/listening to historical fiction is to learn about life and people and their experiences back then. I deal with everything else the rest of the time.

This one was a little different, but we'll worth

Whatever Tessa authors is delightful. Well worth the read or listening.. I plan to listen again. I have to occupy my time until Bride Bet comes out. But, I highly recommend this novel. Anticipation, is the subtle for this one.

best of the three books

while i found the previous two books lingering and frustrating as the stories unfolded - this one was perfection. twists and turns that were believable and heartfelt. I actually became emotional toward the end. full circle at last. glad I read the series.

A surprise twist with a touching HEA

I think this is the best of the Stud Club books. I loved the respectful treatment of hearing disabilities. I also enjoyed the inclusion of Leo's lover as a valuable family member. A great ending to the series!

Best of the trilogy

I almost didn’t read this because I really was not a fan of Julian in the previous books but I am so glad I read it! His character development is great! Worth the listen.

Delightful romp with a bit of mystery

This book is very well-developed as are the characters.. The book kept my interest throughout and I could relate to the characters. For me one trait of a great book is if the book and characters leave a lasting effect. This book does just that. Well done Tessa and Roz.
