    So much beauty!!!

    A STUDY IN SCANDAL by Caroline Linden A STUDY IN SCANDAL is absolutely wonderful, full of suspense, exquisitely written, and features some of the most engaging characters I have ever read. Caroline Linden accomplished what I thought impossible: right from the start, she describes the setting so precisely and the characters are so meticulously defined, that I immediately cared about Lady Samantha Lennox’s fate. What Samantha had done was wrong, it was done in good faith, but Sebastian’s life was ruined in the process. However had Samantha’s father not been such a tyrant, none of it would have happened. Seldom have I felt more for a fictional character; Ms. Linden conveys the emotions, the actions of the characters in such a way, that you cannot help but become involved, and to this extent, it is rare. Samantha’s disastrous outing and subsequent rescue by Lord George Churchill-Gray are clever, entirely believable and absolutely brilliant. The writing is smooth and elegant, the dialogues are perfectly in tune with the times, and the descriptions are so crisp and clear, I felt I was in London; the attention to historical detail is breathtaking. Ms. Linden’s understanding of artists and painting is also remarkable, and the romance is simply sublime. A STUDY IN SCANDAL is a work of art in itself; this is a book that spoke to my heart. DUCHESS OF SCANDAL by Miranda Neville DUCHESS OF SCANDAL by Miranda Neville is a rather dark story. The Duke of Linton married his wife Althea when she was but 18, because she was young, beautiful and suitable; he never really cared for her and they have been apart for most of their 5-year marriage. The Duke is a rather cold-hearted cad, to be honest, and theirs is a rather sad story. However events that happen at the boat race and the scavenger hunt make him realise the error of his ways, and Linton and Althea settle for a very unusual compromise. Ms. Neville is a master of character development and again she shines in the DUCHESS OF SCANDAL, her prose is as gorgeous as ever and she treats us to a few surprises. THE SCOUNDREL AND I by Katharine Ashe What an indescribable delight joy it is to experience the wondrous Katharine Ashe at her most elegant, her wittiest, her absolute best! The author did some serious research into printing, and I devoured every word. Katharine Ashe is a brilliant writer, and her prose in THE SCOUNDREL AND I is simply dazzling: so rich, luminous, eloquent, as well as delightfully clever. This is going to be hard to describe, but it’s another quality to this amazing book: I had an impression of movement throughout, there is an airiness to the story, a lightness to the characters and the romance that is wonderfully pleasant. Anthony and Gabrielle complete each other magnificently, and the romance is absolutely divine! I felt their chemistry, their respect for each other, their connection, and their backstories are enthralling. I loved THE SCOUNDREL AND I as much as one can love a book! THE SCOUNDREL AND I is a long novella, and if all that beauty, wit, glorious writing weren’t enough, Katharine Ashe treats us to the most stupendous exchange of letters between of Lady Justice and Peregrine of the Falcon Club Series, and that alone would qualify as reason enough to read this astounding book! SEDUCING THE SINGLE LADY by Maya Rodale Susannah doesn’t want to get married anymore, or maybe she wants to, anyway she wants an adventure, which Damien provides, and what a scandalous outing it is! I would caution here that, if the reader is not inclined to read about same sex shenanigans, to skip this novella; it’s nothing shocking, but it’s there, and I must say I was a little taken aback. I must admit not knowing Beyoncé’s songs, and I don’t know how it ties in with the songs either. SEDUCING THE SINGLE LADY is typical Maya Rodale Regency: irreverent, flirty, sexy, light and fun, and featuring an independent woman, as expected from this author. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
