Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress by Theresa Romain 99 cents
Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress - Theresa Romain

 by Theresa Romain

 

Heiress Augusta Meredith is tired of stirring up gossip wherever she goes, so she escapes to Bath masquerading as a charming young widow in the hopes of taking a lover with no one the wiser. But when sardonic, darkly handsome Joss Everett arrives from London, her charade may be over before she has a chance to spread her wings.

Augusta persuades Joss to keep her secret in exchange for a secret of his own. Weaving their way through the treacherous pitfalls of a polite world only too eager to expose and condemn them, they begin to see that being true to themselves is not so bad...as long as they're true to each other.

Bound by Their Secret Passion (The Scandalous Summerfields) - Diane Gaston

Probably the weakest of the series, I had a lot of hope for the resolution of the story but the Lorene had to jump through so many hoops after having had a horrible time already. Their mother was just too much.  If it was me I'd probably be found in a home for the deranged.  Why she put up with it all and didn't just disappear to Bath for the waters and her nerves I'll never know.

Bound by One Scandalous Night (The Scandalous Summerfields) - Diane Gaston

Some moments that are quite heart-wrenching (but spoilerish); Amelie Glenville has a night before Waterloo with Lieutenant Edmund Summerfield and it has consequences.He has rescued her once, is he willing to rescue her again and are they willing to to find a life together that suits them both.

 

I liked it, the two characters were good together but they needed to talk more.

Review: The Lady's Scandalous Night by Jeannie Lin
The Lady's Scandalous Night - Jeannie Lin

Romance Bingo - Insta-Love square

 

This is the prequel to a later book (The Dragon and the Pearl) in the Tang Dynasty series. This story gives a good romance (separate couple from that later book) while also setting up the back story for the next book. Yao Ru Jiang (aka River) is the sister of AWOL soldier (aka Mountain) from the regional warlord; Wei Chen is the Rising Guard member sent to hunt down and kill Mountain, who is forming a rebellion to fight the warlord, and has put his entire family in harm's way. Wei Chen visits Mountain's home and family to find information that will point to Mountain's whereabouts. Instead, Wei Chen finds River, who tricks him into a scandalous night so the family and household can make an escape to the forest. However, Mountain's letters home described Wei Chen in such detail that River was already half in love with Wei Chen prior to the meeting; Mountain's stories of home he shared with Wei Chen made Wei Chen fall half in love with River prior to meeting her. Needless to say, River didn't have much trouble getting Wei Chen into sexy times.

 

I liked River - she was smart, brave, and vulnerable. Wei Chen was honestly looking for a different outcome (other than having to kill Mountain) - River was his excuse to get his ass up and actually work for that different outcome. Looking forward to the connected book.
