The Soldier’s Scoundrel is an opposites-attract love story about two men from very different backgrounds in Regency London.
“A familiar Regency opposites-attract romance becomes something freshly seductive in the hands of a skilled newcomer…Sebastian turns in a solid suspense plot, but the impeccably constructed psychology is the winner, with its intricate layers of motives, desires, and fears.”–Kirkus Reviews
“I loved THE SOLDIER’S SCOUNDREL from first page to last! Jack and Oliver completely won me over with their tenderness and passion. Cat Sebastian’s talent shines on every page. This book is going straight to my keeper shelf.”—Tessa Dare, New York Times Bestselling Author

A scoundrel who lives in the shadows
Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London’s slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be.
A soldier untarnished by vice
After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman’s life-one that doesn’t include sparring with a ne’er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack’s pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they’re together.
Two men only meant for each other
