Product Description

Product Description

With Love and Other Scandals, bestselling and RITA Award–winning author Caroline Linden launches a scandalously sexy new historical romance series set in Regency England.
 
Joan Bennett is a breath away from being a spinster. She’s had four seasons without a suitor. After reading a shockingly sensuous book, Fifty Ways to Sin, Joan decides perhaps it’s time to stop being proper and start being sinful, while she’s still young enough to enjoy it. And what better partner than her brother’s drinking mate, Viscount Burke? He seems the type to know how to give a lady a lascivious adventure.
 
It seems that the viscount has qualms about trifling with a friend’s sister. That’s the way to end up betrothed. And he doesn’t want that—or does he?

From the Back Cover

True Love . . .

Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a singlesuitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal.She's had just about enough of being a respectablewallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking ona life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the onesdescribed in a popular scandalous book. When she meetsher brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke,it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

Is Worth a Little Scandal . . .

Tristan Burke doesn't want a wife, and one can't triflewith a friend's sister without risking marriage. Even more,Joan's the last sort of woman he would ever choose: droll,sharp-witted, and always unfashionably dressed.If only he could stop thinking about her mouth. Or whatshe might look like without those horrid clothes.Or the way he can only win an argument with her bykissing her senseless . . . even though that just makes himwant her more. But more could lead to a betrothal,which he fears—or does he?

More About the Author

Caroline Linden knew from an early age she was a reader, but not a writer. Despite an addiction to Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew, she studied physics and dreamed of being an astronaut. She earned a math degree from Harvard University and then wrote software for a financial services firm, all the while reading everything in sight, but especially romance. Only after she had children, and found herself with only picture books to read, did she begin to make up a story of her own. To her immense surprise, it turned out to be an entire novel--and it was much more fun than writing computer code. Ten years, twelve books, three Red Sox championships, and one dog later, she has never been happier with her decision. She lives with her family in New England.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best romances I've read this year 28 Aug 2013
By Caz
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh, what a lovely book! There was no melodrama; there were no huge angst-fests, no mysteries to solve, no evil ex-lovers or relatives out to steal the heroine's fortune; no big misunderstandings or unexpected pregnancies... this was a story about two people finding each other and falling in love, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Tristan, Viscount Burke and Joan Bennet have been vaguely acquainted with each other since childhood. Tristan is a close friend of Joan's brother, Douglas, and over the years the pair of them have got into scrapes, caused scandals and generally lived the dissolute lives of young, well-to-do gentlemen.

Tristan lost both his parents as a child and was reluctantly taken in by his aunt and uncle, neither of whom wanted anything to do with him. As a result, he tried to spend as little time at home as possible, inveigling invitations where he could to friends' homes for school holidays. Having nobody to check him - and more importantly to love him - has meant that his behaviour in society has not always been everything it should be, although as he is young, titled, very handsome and very rich, he is welcome in all but the highest circles of tonnish society.

Joan is twenty-four and has spent most of her life trying to be a good daughter - which seems mostly to consist of doing what her mother wants. The problem is that Joan isn't like her mother. She's tall and statuesque, so the dresses, colours and hairstyles her mother favours make her look frumpish and unattractive, yet she continues to wear them because it makes her mother happy. Joan is clever and witty, but her height, figure and awful dresses mean that she is consigned to the ranks of the wallflowers at balls and other functions.

I enjoyed this story from start to finish. Totally engaging characters. I found myself interested in the lesser characters too - how about a book on Evangeline's story?

I have enjoyed other stories by this author, but this one not so much. A pleasant enough read but something was missing for me.
