review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-09-04 21:08
Difficult to read
Expecting a Royal Scandal - Caitlin Crew... Expecting a Royal Scandal - Caitlin Crews

Cairo Santa Domini is the heir to the throne of Santa Domini. Thinking that it was the best thing for his people, living under a dictatorship, he's always creating scandals around him. He feels guilty about the "death" of his sister (book 2), and considers he's not the king that Santa Domini needs. In order to finish disenchanting those who saw him as the hope of the country, he decides to marry in a marriage of convenience with the woman most unsuitable for the role of queen consort: paparazzi beggar, Brittany Hollis.

 
Brittany was a girl who lived for the covers of the magazines and scandals were her way of life. She had married three times for convenience, the purpose of which was to earn enough money to be able to retire young to an island in the Pacific, away from everything and everyone. At first, she rejects Cairo, but then accepts her proposal because the money she gets from will make her wish come true. What she did not imagine was that union turns into an attraction impossible to forget... And the secrets begin to come to light.
 
I found this first delivery very difficult to digest. First, Brittany's reasons for making money didn't convince me at all. I mean, what woman wants to be famous and be a millionaire appearing in the magazines as a prostitute? On the other hand, although it is a noble gesture to earn money to help his family (parents, siblings, uncles, cousins, etc.), at some time she desires that her younger sister turns 18 to stop keeping maintain the lazy family she has. On the other hand, the attitude of the family, especially Brittany's mother, is somewhat hypocritical. They publicly criticized Brittany, but accept the money sent by her. How nice...
 
I consider that the motives of Cairo are more altruistic in comparison with Brittany, but at the same time that demonstrates he's a weak man. The fact that Brittany imposes him to take the throne on behalf of their unborn child it makes it clear.
 
As a couple they are perfect to each other, of that there is no doubt. The chemistry between the main characters and one of Brittany's secrets are the best thing in this story.

Book Review For: How to Marry a Marquess by Stacy Reid
How to Marry a Marquess (Wedded by Scandal) (Volume 3) - Stacy Reid

'How to Marry A Marquess' by Stacy Reid is Book Three in The "Wedded by Scandal" series. This is the story of Evie Chesterfield and Richard Maitland. I have read (and Loved!) the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Evie first met Richard when she was almost 16 years of age. Richard is her brother's friend but she had never met him until she sneaked out one night upset about her parents trying to marry her off to an older Duke. Richard happened upon her when she had been physically sick with upset about her parents plan. Richard and Evie hit is off after he told her how to turn the Duke's attention away from her. They both agreed they would be friends...which they did.
Richard once thought himself in love and wanted to marry the lady but they lady in question had her heart set on a title. Richard at the time was a Second Son and had no such Title. Richard was heart broken and vowed to never marry. Richard does not trust or think that Love is true.
Richard really likes Evie but she is the darling of the Town and of late even with a Title that he inherited he knows being something more that his frined would ruin her. In addition, he doesn't want to loose their friendship...but it hard to keep is desire for her to himself.
I so love the friendship between Richard and Evie an how it slowly build into more. Richard for all his talk of not wanting to love he had a big heart for the less fortunate.
This is a book you will not be able to put down!! Loved it!

Review: How to Marry a Marquess by Stacy Reid
How to Marry a Marquess (Wedded by Scandal) (Volume 3) - Stacy Reid

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

 

Since reading the first Wedded by Scandal book, Accidentally Compromising the Duke, I have been on tenterhooks for Evie and Westfall’s story. Stacy Reid did not disappoint. How to Marry a Marquess has it all: bright dialogue, meltingly sensual scenes, and a romance you can root for. I adored it.

What I liked best about Evie and Westfall’s relationship is that it is six years in the making. Ms. Reid takes readers on a journey that starts with a less than glamorous (but quite funny) initial meeting. Even though they’re immediately attracted to one another, the two of them are friends for years before the main story develops. I loved the chemistry Evie and Westfall had both as friends and lovers. The sexual tension was utterly delicious and their dialogue brightened up the page and made How to Marry a Marquess practically speed by.

While it’s clear to everyone that Evie and Westfall would make a great match, things aren’t so easy for them. Westfall’s life took a turn when he found and rescued his illegitimate daughter, Emily. Emily changed Westfall’s outlook on life and his patience for the hypocrisy of high society is limited. The fact that he loves his daughter and the other children he adopted made me melt, but his actions have made him a pariah in society. While he doesn’t care that his name has been dragged through the mud, he’s so protective of Evie that he won’t give them a chance because he doesn’t believe that the darling of society could be an outcast. Westfall’s passion for social reform made me love him, but I did want to shake him a time or two because he makes assumptions about Evie and what she does or does not think. Neither he nor Evie are perfect and that means that – even though they both have hearts of gold – they don’t always say or do the right thing. But even when they screw up, they mean well and Ms. Reid shows us why each acts the way they do. And all the ups and downs are totally worth it because their happily ever after is wonderfully romantic.

How to Marry a Marquess is the third Wedded by Scandal book, but it can easily be read as a standalone. As happened Accidentally Compromising the Duke, I made the mistake of trying to read this story on my lunch break, which was a terrible plan. Ms. Reid’s writing is so entertaining that if you have to put the story down, you’re counting the hours until you can get back to it. I love a good friends-to-lovers story and Evie and Westfall’s is simply fantastic.

A WINTER SCANDAL by Candace Camp
A Winter Scandal - Candace Camp

A baby is found in the manger in the church where Thea's brother is vicar. She goes after the man she thinks is the baby's father who turns out is not but she's involved in the mystery of who left the baby and why. As she gets to know Lord Morecombe she throws conventions to the wind as does he. They may both think they are focused on the baby but, as anyone with a pair of eyes sees, they are more interested in each other. The baby brings out sides to them that they would never have discovered by following convention.

I liked this story. I liked Thea and Gabriel. They make a good couple. She does not let him mow her over and he discovers there is more to a woman than companionship in bed. The mystery is good as Gabriel must unravel the past and realize his mistakes. I plan on reading the rest of the series.
