    One thought on “How to School Your Scoundrel

    1. Mary - Buried Under Romance

      I feel that the title really undermines this book. A scoundrel? Bah. Somerton is a bloody conquerer, an Alexander the Great of the Victorian era. My heart was taken in a roller coaster ride with this ruthless, unscrupulous, absurdly demanding anti-hero, and emerged with a potential risk of heart attack, I might add. What magnificent skill it took to depict such a man as the hero - the man who was the dominant villain in every sense of the word in Gray's A Gentleman Never Tells (Affairs by Moonli [...]

    2. Monty Cupcake ☠ Queen of Bloodshed ☠

      I liked this better than the previous book, but it was slow, so very slow. The first 100 pages of the book are super boring, which is surprising since Somerton is a supposed scoundrel and works as a spymaster. Somehow Markham (Luisa)'s time as his secretary is very boring. The pace of the book picks up about 130 pages in, but then again, not really fast, only not as slow as before. Still slow and rather annoying that Somerton is still on about his plot for revenge. I thought the whole thing with [...]

      Sadly, only 1.5 stars from me. Almost a dnf. This was not a book I particularly liked. And I have enjoyed this author's other books.It is the story of Luisa, the third princess in hiding, who has to masquerade as the Earl of Somerton’s secretary. Dressed as a man, of course. I am not a huge fan of this plot device- I reckon you would always be able to guess it was a woman, and I don't think a man as supposedly clever as Somerton would have taken almost half the book to work it out, but there y [...]

      4.5 stars This book was a bit different than the other two. A majority of the book wasn't focused on how the main couple, Luisa and Somerton, fell in love but rather how Luisa played her part in the events leading up to taking her principality back and Somerton's main focus was his wife's affair and his revenge against the couple. After all this was settled everything that has happened in the previous two books wrapped up nicely. After the three princesses went into hiding, there was a lot of be [...]

    6. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

      I was so enthralled with this book, I didn't want to put it down. It has the intensity that I crave in a historical romance with excellent writing. The characters had a complexity that made them real people, and not always in good ways. Our hero lives up to the scoundrel name for sure, but his path of redemption makes for delectable reading.I have to give this one 4.5 stars, because it's just that good. I am adding Juliana Gray to my must read HR author list.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur Magazin [...]

      SPOILERS THROUGHOUT!!20/11 - What an outlandish plot (and this is a romance, so that's saying something)! Three princesses (this is the third in the series, featuring Luisa the oldest sister and future queen) in hiding after the murder of their father and husband (or brother-in-law). A rogue group of revolutionaries have run the princesses out of their tiny German principality and sent them into hiding in the houses of appropriately dangerous (and therefore protective) men. The two people who ha [...]

      HOW TO SCHOOL YOUR SCOUNDREL: FINDING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFEOriginal Post at fangswandsandfairydust/201 on May 5, 2014.All rights reservedHaving read HOW TO MASTER YOUR MARQUIS (HtMyM) in December of 2013 and found it a thrill ride and I enjoyed this book too although it felt more serious. But my memory is severely flawed as to who the baddies are.In HtMyM It is Princess Stephanie who is the Princess featured. She is not destined to be the ruler of the principality unless something happens to Luis [...]

    9. Ilze

      Very strange book. The love story was nice, and the conversion of Somerton from villain (in Juliana Gray's earlier book "A Gentleman Never Tells") to hero was convincing. I wish the story had been concluded when Somerton and the heroine Luisa were in Italy and Somerton realized what an ass he had been with his first wife.But no such luck - the reader is forced to carry on with the overarching, totally farcical plot about the revolutionary terrorists that took over the government of the heroine's [...]

      4.5 starsBecause I'm writing this for my own amusement, it's longer than the reviews of mine which you might read posted elsewhere, so be warned! .This is the third and final book in Ms Gray’s Princesses in Hiding trilogy, and tells the story of the eldest of the three sisters, Luisa, the Crown Princess of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof, who, following the assassination of her father and young husband, had briefly been ruler of the small principality until forced to flee to England with her sist [...]

      Have you ever read a book where you sit at the end and are all "omg. In't even know what to say about this one."? Welp. That's kinda me. lol How to School Your Scoundrel was so not what I was expecting but dang I loved it for what it was. I enjoyed the characters, the continuation of the secondary storyline--princesses in hiding after an assassination attempt on the royal family in their country--and the romance that was just a touch dreamy. Though it was so not the romance I was expecting as Ma [...]

    12. Celine

      I appreciate that Gray was trying give us a different, more complex hero than you usually see in romances. In this case, I never really liked Somerton. Occasionally, I found his situation sympathetic but I felt he caused it himself by his selfish actions. I know by the end we are supposed to believe that he's changed because of his love for Luisa but I never felt that. I never felt any sort of chemistry between Luisa and Somerton; their romance never felt believable to me.I didn't really care fo [...]

      An excellent closure to the Princess in Hiding series, the story inter-relates with the Affair in Moonlight series where the Earl of Somerton was set as the villain.In this story, the man is a total anti-hero, a villain in A Gentleman Never Lies where he was obsessed in finding his so-called adulterous runaway wife and their son. The story picks up where he was trying to find where his missing wife. Enter our eldest Princess, Luisa, now disguised as a man and working for the Earl as his secretar [...]

      I've given this a B- for narration and a B+ for content at All About Romance, so that's a B overall for this audiobook version of the storyThis is the third and final book in Ms Gray’s A Princess in Hiding trilogy, in which three royal sisters have to flee their homeland following a revolution. The princesses are transported to England where their uncle, the powerful Duke of Olympia arranges for them to go into hiding disguised as young men.

The Royal Prince (the girls’ father) as well as Luisa’s new husband were murdered by rebels seeking to overthrow the monarchy. The three princesses are half English, and their English uncle, The Duke of Olympia concocts a plan to have them masquerade as men to keep them safe.Luisa is to become Mr. Markham, and apply to become [...]

      Of course I start with the third book. Sigh.But this was good - better than expected. Heavier on plot, intrigue, and gender roles, and thankfully, not nearly as much sex. Oh, it's there, don't worry about that! But thankfully, it's a nicely added touch, rather than the primary focus. Going to try at least one more book by this author, see if she's really this good, or if this one was a fluke.

    17. Keri

      JG completely turned Somerton around for me and in the end I was in love with him! Wonderful read and I wasn't ready for it to be over. The epi was cute and can't wait for that novella for the Duke.

      Romanul a apărut la editura Litera cu titlul '' Cum să educi un rebel'' în anul 2017, în colecția ''Iubiri de poveste'', seria ''Prințese deghizate''. A fost tradus în limba română de către Bianca Mateescu/ Graal Soft. Scriitoarea Juliana Gray și-a făcut debutul în lumea romanelor istorice de dragoste în anul 2012 cu primul roman am trilogiei ''Affairs by Moonlight'' și succesul de care s-a bucurat această trilogie a detrminat-o să continue cu o nouă trilogie '' Prințese deghi [...]

    19. Sabi

      I enjoyed finishing the "Princess in Hiding" trilogy. But somehow, this third book was a bit more difficult to read than the two before. Maybe it was due to the fact that some spoilers had been given in book 2. And maybe because the villain was the villain and then not and then yes and somehow I guess Ms. Gray wasn't quite sure whom to pick (this reminded me a little of "Cocoa Beach"). Is it just me or did she get inspiration for "Cocoa Beach" in this book? And "A Certain Age" in book 2? Those b [...]

    20. Mischa

      Juliana Gray can write the historical men with a little more accuracy (i.e. not perfect, having mistresses etc.) better than most authors. However, in this case, I'm not particularly sure I liked the main hero quite as much, and the main couple in general really didn't do much for me.

    21. Leigh-Ayn

      I enjoyed the last book of this trilogy. I didn’t need the added drama of Somerton’s first wife or I needed her to be a b!&tch. Overall a satisfactory ending to the books.

    22. Scoyphenson

      Somerton never really redeemed himself in my eyes. He remained callous, gratuitously cruel, and generally unappealing.

    23. Jennifer

      I'll be honest, I read Gray's previous series "Affairs by Moonlight" back when it came out 2 years ago and it was only after someone pointed out that Somerton our lead here was the main baddie in the second book of that series. Now that I think about it, he was crazy! Like he kidnaps his wife and threatens murder crazy. He wants his heir, really, who cares about the wife? But to save herself and her son she ran away to the countryside to hide from Somerton and ended up in the arms of her first a [...]

    24. Barb Lie

      How to School Your Scoundrel by Juliana Gray is the 3rd book in her historical romance, A Princess in Hiding series. I very much enjoyed the first two books in this series, as Juliana Gray does a wonderful job in creating a fun storyline with a little bit of everything; romance, historical, mystery, danger, but above all the story had a lot of humor, and was joy to read.A quick but spoiler free background on this series: Three princesses (Louisa, Stefanie and Emilie) find themselves targets in a [...]

      Crown Princess Luisa of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof watched as the entire life she was raised to lead got turned upside down by the revolutionaries who murdered her father and her husband.

The Earl of Somerton is dark, lethal, and extremely bitter. His wife is in love with another man and his focus has devolved into a qu [...]

      Review from Backchatting BooksThis book had it all from cross-dressers to conspiracies, a cuckolded husband and even a moment where I thought it was curtains for our plucky princesses. I enjoyed it despite the over-the-top plot and modernisms. Princess Luisa is the last princess to get her happily-ever-after and this is quite fitting as she is the rightful ruler of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhoff. Luisa’s lot is to work as secretary for spy-master Philip, the Earl of Somerton. Somerton is convin [...]

    29. Aspoon

      The title of this book was extremely misleading. There was no schooling of any kind, there was scoundrel of any kind. This was my first and LAST time reading a book by this author unless someone can tell me of another book she has written that would redeem her atrocious writing. Here are my pros and cons…Cons:- The fact that a princess and now ruler of a country would go into hiding as a secretary or shall I say “servant” and dress up like a man nonetheless is absolutely absurd. The prince [...]
