5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Chili Peppers 9 Dec 2000
By Crazy for Words - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
.... Move over Amanda Quick, Scandalous is a fast-paced romp readers will find difficult to put down until the last page is read. Strong characters and snappy dialogue provide high-quality entertainment, while the chemistry between Christine and Gavin sizzles. The Regency setting compliments the story without overshadowing the plot, as so often happens within many novels set in this time period.
Ronda Thompson has conquered Regency with the same finesse she practiced with both the Contemporary Isn't It Romantic? and the Historical Western Prickly Pear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steamy and Romantic 15 Dec 2000
By deefossen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Scandalous is a regency-set book without all the constraints of some regencies. Christine is definitely not a character hindered by the strict rules of a strict society. She's a spit fire. And Gavin is, well, just plain mouth-watering. If you want steam and romance combined, then this is the book for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too long 17 Feb 2006
By M. DETWILER - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book went on too long. Christine should have been able to see what a catch Gavin was and not prolonged our agony. I felt she held out too long, went on about her "calling", and didn't see the prize she had in front of her. If these two had talked a little, things could have been settled much quicker. All in all, Gavin was one of the yummiest heroes I've read in a while. Too bad it took his wife so long to figure it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scandalous 13 Jan 2001
By Doris J. Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The reason I give Scandalous four stars instead of five is that Miss Thompson has made a few mistakes. The inheritance laws being incorrect did not bother me overly much. Nor did the few grammar errors.
The thing that bothered me was the maid Tillie's habit of jumping back and forth between not having an accent and then suddenly having one.
The first time this happened I was stunned. I was so involved in the book that the sudden accent had me turning back pages to see if I had missed something. I did not.
For the first few chapters Tillie had no accent. And then suddenly she has to address her new master for the first time. You changed to ye. But Ye was not always ye. It changed back and forth. One time Tillie even said, "Thank ye, Your Lordship." Very strange, I thought. Yet,throughout the rest of the book this happen. In the same paragraph, she would have an alternating number of ye's and you's. One time Tillie dropped an H. Only once that I noticed. And then never again.
I could have understood this if the author had explained somewhere that Tillie lapsed into an old accent when she was nervous, but that never happened.
I know it sounds picky, but I am picky about the books I read. Very picky and things like this seem to jump off the page at me.
This does not mean that I did not enjoy the book. Actually, I loved it. Other than the mistakes mentioned above, this book was very well written, the story (Exception, English Inheritance laws) very believable and the characters delightful! I loved the laugh out loud humor.
Scandalous has the dialog was the best I have read in years even if some of the phrases were decidedly modern sounding. Buy the book and overlook the mistakes. It will be worth your while.
