This is a quick read that had tears in my eyes at times as well as smiles. It is a second chance at love for two people kept apart by circumstances. I loved Philomena's determination to please her brother despite her own belief that no one will love her. Once Bradford realized what is happening, he became a hero I cared for. As the two spend time together, the revelations of the past tugged at my heart. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake is book Six in the "Cinderella Sisterhood" series. This is the story of Aurora Paxton and Lucas Vale, Marquess of Dashell. I have read the previous book but feel this is easily a standalone book .
After a terrible mistake Aurora was shunned from the town and her family. But now she is being called back home to help with an issue that has come forward. It seems her step mother is being blacked mailed and her much loved half sister may be hurt by the scandal if not stopped.
Lucas was a hard hero to love for sure. He is out to get himself a heiress to save his estate but yet he keeps going toward Aurora. But at the same time he is really harsh with Aurora. But through it all they do end up finding their ending.
Scandalous London: Series Bundle by Tamara Gill is a Box Set with Three Book with about 260 pages.
I always love a bundle of books that are easy to read. I find they are great for when you need a quick fix on a Romance Story but don't have the time to commit to a long period of time. Like before going to bed or when I am waiting for an appointment. They are gems to have and any by Ms. Gill is a bonus...I just love her stories. Know that these books have been first released on their own but now they are easily accessible in this bundle.
