Even a cloistered, young heiress in medieval England has her reckless moments...

Lord Oliver Bellecote has a way of bringing out the vixen in any woman. Any woman, that is, but Cecily Foxe, an innocent flower destined for the abbey who seems utterly immune to his charms. Or so he believes until the night they accidentally meet in the pagan ruins of Foxe Ring, and Oliver dis

Second in the Foxe Sister Trilogy, Heather Grothaus continues to enthrall us with the lives and loves of the Foxe Sisters.

Cecily Foxe, middle sister to Sybilla and Alys, is practically considered a Saint for her life of calm, gentle sacrifice to others. Although not a member of the convent, everybody thinks it's just a matter of time. And that time is drawing near. But is that what Cecily really wants? She has always lived her life to serve others but there is a small part of her that wonders wh

This is the second book in the Foxe Sisters Trilogy. Overall I gave it 3.5 stars. It wasn’t as much fun as the first book but it was still very well written. This book has Cecily trying to decide between a life as a wife or life as a nun. Not only does she fall in love with the Scoundrel, but she also attracts the eye of another man, who, if we hadn’t met Oliver first, I could very easily believe was her intended love interest for the book. Ms. Gothaus creates very believable characters a

NEVER SEDUCE A SCOUNDREL by Heather Grothaus is an exciting Medieval historical romance set in 1277 Fallstowe Castle,England. It is the second in the
Foxe Sister Trilogy,but can be read as a stand alone. See, “Never Kiss a Stranger”. An exciting story of Lady Cecily Foxe,the middle Foxe sister who is set of be a nun,shy,and a healer or is she really shy or just lonely. And Lord Oliver Bellecote,a notorious womanizer,the brother of Cecily’s eldest sister who has died,who is also lonely,and a new e

Favorite Lines: "The old ring of standing stones at the crumbling Foxe ruin was rumored to be a magic place. Men and women throughout the land had used the mysterious circle for generations in order to find a mate. The legend was unlikely, yes, but Alys had gone, and Piers had found her in the midst of a very unlikely set of circumstances. Perhaps...perhaps Hallowshire wasn't Cecily's true vocation, which might explain her sudden, fierce reluctance. Perhaps she, too, should visit the Foxe Ring. ...more

Saint Cecily. They all called her that and she knew it. She was never given a chance to be anything but. Then one night, her halo slips. That one night changes her life forever. Oliver Bellecote. Newly minted Lord Bellecote, but also a scoundrel. Known by many women in the area for his jumping from one woman to the next with no regard. However, one drunken night, Oliver makes love to Cecily. It makes everything they knew about each other come into question. Cecily knows now she can't join the ab ...more
Didn't care for this book. The characters' personalities and motivations are inconsistent. At first, Cecily, the main lead female, is portrayed as a chaste virgin who thinks that men hold her at arm's length because of her purity. Other people in the kingdom have been known to make fun of her because of her chastity and conclude that she's "frigid." She loses her virginity within the first few chapters by the drunken leading man, who is a known womanizer, and he takes her virginity in an almost ...more

I was underwhelmed. Started off good and then the story and characters were all over the place. And honestly, I started hoping that the hero and heroine wouldn't end up together. Neither were remotely likeable. Oliver is an idiot and Cecily is a jerk. Vicar John is excellent however and deserved better.
I really enjoyed Heather Grothaus's new book "Never Seduce a Scoundrel". In this book you will find two lonely people who find each other in the mist of the pagan ruins of the Foxe Ring. The Foxe Ring legend says that a woman who visits at the full moon shall meet her intended husband. But when Lady Cecily Foxe (known as Saint Cecily because of her religious vow)goes there, she doesn't expect to find in the rain a drunken Lord Oliver Bellecote, who falls from his horse literally at her feet. Whe ...more
I really liked both the hero and the heroine as a gut reaction - although each of them did things that annoyed me. I had a hard time believing that someone has militantly spiritual as the heroine would just jump into bed at a moment's notice, and an even harder time believing that she didn't seem more concerned about this behavior. I felt like the conflict between her actions and her beliefs were glossed over too quickly. The hero definitely had younger son syndrome and so was sometimes frustrat ...more
I enjoyed this book, although the graphic description of the sex scene in the beginning is more than I remember from the first book in this series. Beyond that, I felt a little like Rachel from friends, especially when the vicar was introduced. I had to chuckle a little. So, while certainly predictable in points, it was still enjoyable, and quite an easy read. I look forward to reading the third book in the series, as it should focus on the most enigmatic of the sisters, Sybilla.

Very interesting. The scoundrel never know he loved Cecily until it was too late. Lucky he was given a second chance to win the lady.
Lololol this is going to be my mom's Mother's Day present. This goes with our running joke of trash novel gifts, which is finding the title for a romance novel that makes us laugh the most and then giving it as a gift for a birthday/holiday/christmas.

I read this to make sure it was ludicrous and silly, or in other words, PERFECTION.

It was a fast read. I almost did not make it passed the first few chapters, as the H practially raped the h. She was not unwilling, just a virgin. He was drunk (no excuse), injured, and believed she had been in affairs in the past. It was very painful for her, and he didn't even remember it. Once I made it past that poing, the book went fast.
A birthday tradition from my sister: find the most blush-worthy paperback romance as a gift. This year I actually read it. I won't lie - it was fun, but only a few weeks later, i can't ry recall many details. And not nearly as much "romance" as I expected. Ha.
The second book in the Foxe Sisters Trilogy and it just keeps getting better. I really enjoyed this novel and liked both Cecily and Oliver. I need to start taking notes as I read for reviews because there was some great banter between these two.

I was almost the end of the story until I realize I was missing the chapter 24 till 26. Soooo frustrated!!!! Her writing is getting better and better, and I love Cecily's story.

the missing chapter has been found and I'm happy :-))

I liked this book much better than the first one. I'm actually eagerly anticipating the final book in the series about Sybilla, the eldest Foxe sister.
Humor and suspense, but the anachronistic dialogue keeps one from remembering that this is in 1277 England
