Annabelle Greene needs a husband—and quickly. To inherit the only home she’s ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to…    


Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking…and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He’ll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can’t control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames—of wicked desire.


"This is a great story for readers who enjoy a 'second chance' love story...WHEN THE SCOUNDREL SINS has a man who gets a second chance to be a hero, and a woman who is surprised by love...I look forward to reading Anna Harrington's next book."

     ~ Fresh Fiction


"Anna Harrington brings unique nuances to all her stories, no two are alike, and that always makes her writing a wonderful experience...When the Scoundrel Sins brings all the best elements of a good historical romance together but ultimately it is Anna Harrington’s sensitive writing that makes her work special."

     ~ Jenerated Reviews, 5 stars


"Harrington knows there is nothing quite like a reformed rake to make readers' hearts beat wildly. The latest Capturing the Carlisles is a heartwarming charmer. Not since Courting Miss Hattie have kisses been so sensual and arousing. Harrington spins her tale with care as she gives her memorable characters a lively plot and depth of emotion that captivates her fans, who can't wait for the next chapter." 

     ~ RT Reviews, 4-1/2 stars TOP PICK


"When a Scoundrel Sins is another wonderful story in the Capturing the Carlisles series. I adore Quinn and Belle, and absolutely love the feelings – their fears and passion – infused into the characters. The author so beautifully put these emotions out there, making them real and connecting me to the characters. When a Scoundrel Sins is a must read!"

     ~ That's What I'm Talking About, A -- Loved It!


"When The Scoundrel Sins is a fantastic historical romance with witty humor and long-denied chemistry between its lead characters. Well-written and entertaining, Belle and Quinn’s love story is an enchanting, intriguing read that I could not put down. If you’re looking for a fun, new historical read, be sure to pick up WHEN THE SCOUNRDELS SINS by Anna Harrington. It’s a fabulous book and the characters are so much fun to follow. An excellent addition to the Capturing the Carlisles series, and one I seriously loved reading."
