Book Description

21 Aug 2012 Hqn
London, April 1817 ‘Dance with me,' her dark gentleman said. ‘You were meant to dance with me.' Trial by Seduction From the moment Lord Henry Wardeaux heard that the missing heiress to the Templemore fortune was working as a lady's maid, he travelled to London to verify Margery Mallon's true origins- by seduction if necessary... Innocent Margery is shocked by the wicked passions Henry has roused within her. Unable to resist his sinner's eyes, Margery finds herself tarnishing her virtuous reputation and falling for her mysterious seducer. Nevertheless, Henry's secret must be revealed and, when the maid becomes a countess, how can the richest heiress in England forgive his deception?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just do it. ( Purchase the series) 5 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got the first book in this series as a free title and couldn't put it down. I read through the other four and waited impatiently for this book, the last in the series. I eventually purchased a hard copy and have just downloaded it on my Kindle. If ever you want a good read the here it is. Absolutely fabulous and highly recommended. I do suggest you read them in running order as the stories are extremely entertaining and run in order. Enjoy.

This entertaining Regency Romance is number six, and according to the author's introduction the last, of the "Scandalous Women of the Ton" series of light regency romances, which consists of:

1) "Whisper of Scandal"
2) "One Wicked Sin"
3) "Mistress by Midnight"
4) "Notorious (Scandalous Women of the Ton)"
5) "Desired" and
6) This book, "Forbidden."

The heroine of this book is Margery Mallon who appeared in several of the previous books in this series as maid to their heroines Lottie Palliser, Lady Tess Darent and Joanna Grant to whom she is in service at the start of this volume.

Margery believes that she was born to a poor and disreputable family in London. She has earned a position as lady's maid (one of the upper servants) through hard work and honesty: she has been told that she might rise to the highest possible position for a female servant, that of housekeeper, but the height of her ambition would be to open her own sweet shop.

But then, while on an honest errand in a very direputable establishment - she is providing some of the excellent sweets she cooks to the girls at Mrs Tong's brothel in exchange for disgarded gowns - Margery meets a tall and handsome aristocrat who addresses her by name.

How does this man, who introduces himself as Henry Ward, know who she is?

Bought Book 1 on Kindle 99p Deal of the Day and was hooked. Great read - best if you read the series in order as, whilst they are individual books, they intertwine with the characters. Will definitely read more of her books.

Not more than OK I'm afraid. Maybe not just my sort of book but it bored me and I haven't bothered to read the others to be honest.

I like Nicola Cornick. Unlike other authors she has avoided the trap of writing the same story over and over again. Easy, relaxing read.

4.0 out of 5 stars romantic novel
This is a romantic novel that you can loose yourself in and would make a good holiday read.
