Review: Scandalously Yours

My Rating: 5 stars

My Review: I  loved this book! I Loved the "Sleepless in Seattle" or even "Mary Poppins" type plot, where the son Scottie writes letter for advertisement to try to find him a mother that is not the "Steel Corset" that his father is courting. Olivia fits nicely into the picture. They have matching interests and I love how she tries to be a "different lady" of the times. I don't think it ever states the time period of the book but it does have several very notable events.Olivia and Johns romance was so sweet! I'll end up reading this one again!

Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only thing they are encouraged to pursue is an eligible bachelor. So, the headstrong Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret. Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .


The eldest of the three Sloane sisters, Olivia is unafraid to question the boundaries of Society-even if it does frequently land her in trouble. Disdaining the glittery world of balls and courtship, Olivia prefers to spend her time writing fiery political essays under a pseudonym for London's leading newspaper. But when her columns attract the attention of the oh-so-proper Earl of Wrexham, Olivia suddenly finds herself dancing on the razor's edge of scandal. With the help of her sisters, she tries to stay one step ahead of trouble . . .

However, after a series of madcap misadventures, Wrexham, a former military hero who is fighting for social reform in Parliament, discovers Olivia's secret. To her surprise, he proposes a temporary alliance to help win passage of his bill. Passion flares between them, but when a political enemy kidnaps the earl's young son, they must make some dangerous decisions . . . and trust that love will conquer all
