It was the best of the three books, but it seemed to flow too fast and not much drama with his gift but I enjoyed reading the story, but I was left wanting more.
Malgrado le premesse interessanti, questo romanzo si è rivelato alla fine abbastanza deludente. Speravo mi avrebbe catturato maggiormente. Piacevole ma sicuramente niente di eccezionale.
Extended review available on Mina's Bookshelf minadecaro/2012/1Rating 4.5 starsLondon, 1860. Griffin (known as "Devon"), thirty year old Earl of Devonwood has a gift. He is a seer, a person endowed with the ability to glimpse the future by touching inanimate objects, a birthright inherited from his mother "just as directly as his raven hair and storm gray eyes". For the last sixteen years he's been tormented by guilt: Devon blames himself and the inaccuracy of one of his visions for the accident [...]

Quick get me my umbrella!Spoilers ahead. I'm not sure what I think of this book. There were portions that I found very entertaining and then there were parts that were eye-rolling moments. I didn't have any problems with the cover, loved it! Even though the cover has headless people, the color is so wonderful and I loved the scroll work around the text. Very eye catching!Now, on to Touch of a Scoundrel. Touch, in this case refers to the heroes (Devon) ability to "see" the future when he touches [...]

Review Posted on Demon Lover's Books & MoreThe young Earl of Devonwood grew up seeing visions, a trait he gets from his mother’s side. He usually has about 12 hours until a vision comes to pass, and they always do. But that doesn’t stop him from trying to stop or change them. His father won’t listen to that kind of malarkey, even though Griffin has proven his visions time and time again. So when Griffin as a young boy sees his father’s death, he does everything he can to prevent it. [...]
This is the third (and final?) book of the Touch of Seduction series. Each book centers on a member of the Preston family that has a special "gift" - sometimes, something that they touch provides a vision. For Griffin Nash, the Earl of Devonwood, when he touches objects, they sometimes provide visions into the very near (within the next 12 hours) future. When he has these visions, they also provide him with a splitting headache that can last for days depending on how long he holds onto the objec [...]

Touch of a Scoundrel is the third installment of the Touch of Seduction series. Let me just say I do have the first book and I haven't gotten to read it yet. I know; shame on me. However, you know me and my habit of reading books out of order. I thought it would be fitting to do my review on Touch of a Scoundrel by Mia Marlowe, since it comes out this Tuesday. So, here's what you are in for:You meet Emmaline Farnsworth and her foster father Montague Farnsworth who are trying to swindle Theordore [...]
I won this book through GoodReads First Reads. My thanks go out to the author, publisher and website for getting the novel to me. I would describe this book as an entangling romantic story with a twist of some paranormal occurrences and a touch of ancient history. Pretty much the perfect combination of ideas that appeal to my reading taste.I thought this novel was extremely well thought out. I quite enjoyed how everything fit perfectly into place in the end. I found myself rooting for the charac [...]
4.5*Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.The Earl of Devonwood, Griffin Nash, has a gift. Or as he sees it, a curse.

The vision always resolves itself within 12 hours, so when he gets a Sending from Emmaline Farnsworth’s pencil showing Griffin their passionate embrace, he’s both turned on and appalled. Emmaline is his brother Theodore’s choice for a bride though she hasn’t giv [...]
Despite an interesting premise, and a previous fun entry in this series (#1), this book was stale and disappointing. I expected more. Griffin and Emma showed me nothing but Instalust, and I felt that Griffin's Sight (or whatever he calls it) was weakly explained while Emma came across as a conniving liar. A real problem - Griffin couldn't afford to marry a poor woman, and Emma needed to land a rich one to fund her "father's" sanatorium visit - was glossed over with an improbable deus ex machina [...]
TOUCH OF A SCOUNDREL by Mia Marlowe is an exciting and intriguing historical romance with a touch of paranormal. Book #3 in "The Touch of a Seduction" series,can be read as a stand alone. See, "Touch of a Thief", "Touch of a Rogue". What an exiting and intriguing series this is with a bit of paranormal. Griffin Nash, Earl of Devonwood and Miss Emmaline Farnsworth are on a journey of passion,magic,danger,trust,scandal and romance. Ms. Marlowe writes such tantalizing stories with a bit of magic an [...]
This was a First Reads. I really enjoyed this book. Griffin and Emmaline's characters are so nicely drawn together. Griffin has this power where he has glimpses into the future when he touches items that belong to others. Sometimes this is used for not so wonderful schemes, like gambling. He sees himself with Emmaline before finding out that she has been proposed to by his brother, Teddy. Scandal! Griffin tries what he can to avoid this, but it doesn't work and hasn't worked in the past. What h [...]
Il tocco del peccato è scritto bene, pur essendo un Extra Passion il sesso non è centrale, è ben approfondito, e la trama per quanto non sia nelle mie corde (truffe, antichi reperti egizi, poteri magici…) è stata interessante. Probabilmente un paio di anni fa lo avrei valutato con 3 stelline, ma visto che è stato uno dei pochi romanzi storici ad essermi piaciuti ultimamente, abbondo a 4. VOTO 7=
This is amazing! Interesting plot with some minor gypsy/paranormal elements (no one is a shifter animal human however, thank goodness!) involving a sense of touch. For a solid HR in the Regency era, this novel has a lot of sizzle! Some of the interactions and language borrow from erotica.
This was a very readable story like the previous two in the series, however there were too many problems with the storyline that ruined this book for me Also, it was too bad that the author did not bring in any of the original characters like she did in the second book.
Another enjoyable romp with an interesting paranormal angle, this time a main character who sees glimpses of the future when he touches inanimate objects.
I thought it was the best book of the 3.Hope to see more from this author. Thank you for the good reads.
I did not like it because it's not my kind of romance--- romance with a spy story.
another wonderful story by Ms Marlowe. Mystery, intrique, paranormal and romance rolled into one. I couldn't put it down.
2 stelline e mezzo. Noioso
Read this and really want to go and read the first two. Loved this story.
I just couldn't get into this one.
