Beyond Scandal and Desire: A Sins for All Seasons Novel - Lorraine Heath

He’d been scheming for far too long to cast it all aside now. He’d climbed as far as he could up the social ladder. To reach the higher rungs, others had to fall—far and spectacularly, like fireworks burning out on their way down. He would be paid what he was owed. And God’s mercy on anyone who stood in his way.

Honor and duty, then love
Scandal's Splendor - Collette Cameron

I did not want to stop listening to this story! I fell in love with both Seonaid and Jacques, their desires, their wishes, and their understanding of their roles in life. There were some tears, racing hearts, and smiles as they found their happiness together. I loved this story and highly recommend it, whether in print or on audio.

I received a copy of the audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Sweet, romantic, and fun
Do You Want to Start a Scandal - Tessa Dare

What are you doing to me? He'd whispered.

Charlotte had no idea. But whatever it was, he was doing it back.

 

Spoiler Alert:  I like wallflowers and broody dudes. :) So, of course I liked this one. The way our hero was bamboozled by the heroine gets me every time. I would have liked to feel a bit closer to Piers, for some reason his background felt a bit underdeveloped, rushed or not delved into enough. 

Charlotte was so open, honest, and willing to get her man; I quite delighted in her. I would have liked her relationship with Delia to be focused, shown more to further develop her character. 

 

"What if I told you I know the risks, and I'm willing to take my chances?"

"It wouldn't change a thing. Those walls, as you call them…They're part of me now, and they are iron strong." He lifted a hand to her face, skimming his thumb over her lower lip. "Even if I wished to, I wouldn't know how to dismantle them."

"I know," she said quietly. "I know." She wreathed her arms around his neck. "That's why you need me. I'm going to burn them to the ground."

 

These two were spine tingling at times and plain fun to read about. The setting stayed stagnant as they were at a house party which kind of made their developing relationship feel less rounded out but their chemistry helped patch over some of the overall missing elements of the story. 

 

This was fun, romantic, and heavier fluff at times, a Regency to delightfully pass the time.

Anatomy of a Scandal
Anatomy of a Scandal: A Novel - Sarah Vaughan

James Whitehouse is a loving father. He's handsome, charismatic, and he's a successful public figure. But he's been accused of a terrible crime. His wife, Sophie, is convinced he's innocent and will do anything to keep their family from being torn apart by lies. But Kate Woodcroft, the lawyer hired to prosecute the case, is certain that he's guilty and determined to make him pay for his crimes.

I was looking forward to reading this one and was excited to get an early copy. Unfortunately, I hated everything about this book. I didn't like it from the very beginning, but I figured it would turn into something really good later on. I was wrong. I found it very boring and repetitious. I didn't like the characters or the writing. Even the twist didn't do anything for me. Around the halfway mark I started skimming. This one was a big disappointment.

Thank you to Netgalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for an ARC.

Outstanding Historical Romance
Wallflower Most Wanted - Manda Collins

Wallflower Most Wanted by Manda Collins is a fantastic read.  Ms. Collins has given us a book that is well-written.  She has loaded the book with amazing, lovable characters.  Sophia is an artist and overhears a threatening conversation.   The voices startle her and she falls over a small cliff.  Benedick is the local vicar and comes to her aid.  Their story is loaded with drama, sizzle, intrigue, action and humor.  I totally loved reading Wallflower Most Wanted and look forward to reading more from Manda Collins soon.  Wallflower Most Wanted is book 3 of the Studies In Scandal Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
