My Scandalous Viscount is the fifth book in The Inferno Club series, and true to form, Gaelen Foley has penned a romantic, sexy, exciting tale that kept me up far too late into the night, unable to put it down!

me ha encantado!! adoro esta saga
Si me centro en la historia en general, son 4 estrellas sin lugar a dudas, pero si tengo que poner una puntuación a la relación entre los protagonistas, para mí han sido 3 muy raspaditas, me ha faltado más emoción y menos romance express.

Sebastian y Clarissa son dos personajes que hemos ido conociendo y leyendo a lo largo de toda la serie, pero en este libro sus caminos se van a cruzar debido a la desaparición de las esposas de los miembros anteriores (esta desaparición es debido a que este libr

Le pongo las 4 estrellas justas porque ha sido un muy buen libro, donde ha habido un poco de todo, que por supuesto me ha convencido, pero a la vez ha tenido cosas que definitivamente habría cambiado. Lo cierto es que no sé muy bien cómo empezar ésta crítica, actualmente mi cabeza ha entrado en bucle en todo lo referente a éste libro, pero eso es bueno ¿no? Temo los libros que no me enganchen y me causen apatía, que no me emocione ni la historia ni los personajes. Un libro, sea bueno o malo, lo ...more
update: ok i kept thinking about how cute Beau and Carissa were so i decided to give this 4 bye

Easily my favorite so far in the Inferno Club series. Beau was by far my favorite hero just because although he acted all bossyboots and stuff, he pretty much let Carissa walk all over him. LOL. Beau also was acting more of a diplomatic agent rather than a field agent, in this book, which made him way more interesting than the other Inferno Club dudes. He also gave Carissa amazing wedding presents and

Very good book. Carissa and Beau have known each other for years. Beau is a notorious rake in public, but in private he is one of a group of operatives who protect the country. Carissa is a busybody - or "lady of information" - who tends to poke he nose where it doesn't belong. He's attracted to her but her personality and his line of work are not a good mix. Then she gets hurt trying to save him from harm and the resulting compromising situation forces them to marry. Beau wants to keep her safe ...more
Lover of Romance
I just read this one, and boy it surely didn't take very long. My only complaint about this book is that it went by way too fast to suit me. Its like I have a love/hate relationship with this one. When I found this available at the library, I knew that I had to pick it up, since I have been waiting months for it to become free for me to read. It has been a while since I have read the previous books in the series, but I am thinking I need to re read the series. When I started reading My Scandalou ...more
What I continue to love about Gaelen Foley’s writing is her ability to create such strong chemistry between two likable leads as well as turning the expected on its head. She clearly has a gift and it was on full display in My Scandalous Viscount.

Carissa and Beau’s relationship was wrapped around truth, lies, spies and a whole of bunch of truly epic kisses. I actually wasn’t sure at first how their romance would work since Carissa was a ~lady of information (which translates to gossipy busybody)

Somewhat asinine characters and plot but the action flowed briskly and there were occasional moments of sweetness.

I have been a die hard fan of Gaelen Foley's for years. Her books have become more than just exciting stories to me and more of a reminder of how the simplest things like a great book can get you out of a bad place in your life for moments at a time.

The Inferno Club series has long been a favorite of mine but with the events of the previous book, My Ruthless Prince I didn't know where the series could and would go after that rather amazing conclusion.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.

My Scandalous Viscount, the fifth book in the Inferno Club series by Gaelen Foley, gives us the tale of a notorious rake, who's secretly a spy, who finds himself compromised and "forced" to marry an incorrigible snoop. With likable characters, witty dialogue and plenty of romance, Ms. Foley's tale captured my attention from the first page. While a part of a series, I found that I was ab

I had high hopes for this book. Gaelen Foley really wow'ed me with the last installment in The Inferno Club series, but this one just didn't have the same effect. It felt really slow moving at first and the "issue" between our hero and heroine felt overblown and not nearly strong enough to justify the angst that ensued. The pace picked up in the second half, but I was never really bowled over by the romance.

We saw the groundwork for a relationship between Carissa and Beau in My Ruthless Prince.

The rakehell Sebastian, Lord Beauchamp is part of the infamous Inferno Club a notorious and debauched gentlemans club to those on the outside. However, the truth is that the Inferno club houses the Order, a secret group of spys who protect the country. Miss Carissa Portland, a famous gossip or "lady of information" as she puts it, has been watching Lord Beauchamp closely, she can't seem to help but be drawn to the rake, especially after the kiss he stole from her.

As with the rest of the books in this series, I really enjoyed this one. I do wish there would have been a little more "steam" & perhaps some serious getting-to-know-you time between Sebastian (Beau) & Carissa. All in all it was enjoyable & I liked both characters. My Ruthless Prince was EXCELLENT & it was a little difficult to guess where the series would go after they eliminated the Prometheans. This book coincides with the timeline of the previous book so in actuality the Orde ...more
My advice would be to read the prior books in this series before you read this one. I didn't because the prior books frankly did not interest me. I thought this book sounded pretty good because the hero sounded like a real rake in need of reform (which is my favorite trope), so I read it out of order, but I wish that I hadn't. I felt like I was dropped into the middle of a story that already started. The hero and heroine had already met and even had a little history that I would have liked to ha ...more

Bueno, incluso mejor que el otro libro que leí de esta saga (mi peligroso duque). Me gusta mucho la trama que hay detrás del romanticismo, llena de misterio, secretos y conspiraciones.
Started off fabulous! Sort of fell apart for me towards the end.

Carissa Portland styles herself as a "lady of information" - and with good reason, for how else will she know as soon as the ton learns about the indiscretion in her past, and the real reason why she's living with her uncle and his family in London? That doesn't mean she can't be trusted with a secret, but Sebastian, Viscount Beauchamp, doesn't see things that way. Caught snooping in the Inferno Club, around which there is much conjecture (a den of debauchery is the common belief), Beau knows th ...more

It was good but I wished these two would’ve just spoken the truth from the beginning. Trust is a hard thing to find once you’ve lost it.

Gaelen Foley writes these intricately detailed Regency Era books. They are literally the definition of that period, rich, lush, sensual, decadent and that's just the setting. Her characters are complex and unique and one can not help but fall in love with them. I have loved the Inferno Club Series thus far for a lot of reasons but one of them is the dark Gothic feel to it. Dank Dungeons, Broody Heroes and intelligent women. When reading these books one can all but feel the fog weaving it's way t ...more

I honestly don't think that I could have read this book at a better time because My Scandalous Viscount fit my mood perfectly! An entertaining romance that kept me immersed in its' pages, this book was a joy to read and exactly what I was looking for. Carissa isn't your typical proper lady but instead is a bit of a nosy busybody that finds herself entangled with the infamous Viscount Beauchamp. After Sebastian and Carissa find themselves caught up in a precarious situation, they end up being pus ...more

A successful entry in any series has to do a number of things. It has to hold up the theme of the series, introduce elements (e.g. characters, plot, settings) from the previous books to satisfy previous readers) while not alienating new readers. It has to have a standalone story. If it’s not the finale of the series, it has to introduce characters or plot threads that will keep readers intrigued enough to pick up the next book. And if it is the finale, it has to satisfy everyone.

------ I received this book from Edelweiss and the publisher for my honest review------

As the book that seems to tie everything up in the Inferno Club series I think that this was a pretty good book. In most cases I think that the last books are just there to put the endings on any loose ends a series might have. And while this book does a good job of that, there is also a good story here. Sebastian and Carissa are actually a pretty good match for one another. Carissa, due to her past is not one

Every time I read one of Gaelen Foley’s Inferno Club installments, I think it’s the best one she’s written and even though I still have a special affinity for Rohan, Duke of Warrington, I must say that I am most definitely mad for Beau.

MY SCANDALOUS VISCOUNT by Gaelen Foley is fast-paced, endearing and by far, the most romantic installment of the Inferno Club yet. Gaelen’s characters have come to life in MY SCANDALOUS VISCOUNT in such a way as to endear themselves to you immediately. You desire
