Unlike one of the other reviewers, I found this book far from boring. On the contrary it was witty and entertaining in the interaction between the two principal characters, with entertaining secondary characters.

In England, Francesca Bonnard is a notorious, shunned divorcee; someone to be ignored and distanced by polite society and people who had been her friends. However in the more relaxed, less hypocritical atmosphere of Italy, Francesca is a feted top courtesan, able to command a high price for her favours. For the first time in her life she is an independant woman, able to do as she pleases and pick and choose her lovers.

However, Francesca has something both her ex-husband and the British government wants. The government sends the blue-bloodied, master of disguise James Cordier, who is half Italian, to seduce Francesca and find what they want. Her husband sends the somewhat unhinged, knife-wielding Marta Fazi.

James decides that playing hard to get is the best way of attracting and intriging Francesca. Unfortunately he is madly attracted to her and so keeping cool and distanced is difficult, especially when Francesca has a young prince dangling after her and is then attacked several times and her house searched.

A very enjoyable romp.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
James Cordier is all blue blood and entirely dangerous. He's a master of disguise, a brilliant thief, a first-class lover--all for King and Country--and, by gad, he's so weary of it. His last mission is to "acquire" a packet of incriminating letters from one notorious woman. Then he can return to London and meet sweet-natured heiresses--not adventuresses and fallen women. Francesca Bonnard has weathered heartbreak, scorn, and scandal. She's independent, happy, and definitely fallen; and she's learned that "gentlemen" are more trouble than they're worth. She can also see that her wildly attractive new neighbor is bad news.
But as bad as James is, there are others far worse also searching for Francesca's letters. And suddenly nothing is simple--especially the nearly incendiary chemistry between the two most jaded, sinful souls in Europe. And just as suddenly, risking everything may be worth the prize.
I love Loretta Chase's novels and waited eagerly for this one to be published, BUT it doesn't have the humour of the her later novels, the plot is great the heroine feisty as expected the hero strong but it just didn't hold my attention like her previous novels.

I was really surprised when I came to this book page and saw the low reviews. Aside from Don't Tempt Me this is the best Chase book I've read so far. If I didn't know it was Chase, I'd have guessed it was a different author to that of The Last Hellion, which, though good, didn't enthrall me as much as I'd have liked. It drew me in as a few of her books haven't and made me really involved with the characters instead of the plot. That's a good thing.

Francesca was a likeable character despite her unusual profession and I could understand her motivations although some of her comments are risque even to my standards! (I did enjoy them despite this).

James was a brilliant hero, dashing, daring and a spy/thief. Everything you could want. I found the repartee between them to sparkle and the sex scenes were hot and I didnt feel as though they'd been pushed in where they didn't belong to merely correspond to the publisher's desire for X amount of love scenes.

Unlike many Regency romances, this is set in Venice and the way Chase describes it provides a great backdrop for the romance. I read the book in a day and only that long because I had to stop for tea breaks. I would highly recommend this book and also Don't Tempt Me that has the same witty and involving characters as Your Scandalous Ways.

By Helen Hancox TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 7 July 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Loretta Chase wrote the wonderful 'Lord of Scoundrels' which was full of life, with great dialogue and original characters. She doesn't seem to have been able to write to the same level since but I had hopes of this book, with its Venetian setting and interesting characters.

It was a good book but, unfortunately, not as good as 'Lord of Scoundrels'. My main problem with the book was a complete inability to like the heroine, Francesca Bonnard, a high-class courtesan and divorcee. We learn of Francesca's history, that she was in love with her husband but had her heart broken by him, but throughout the novel she appears heartless and manipulative. I was never very sure why so many men liked her - she's clearly attractive but she seemed to have an almost super-human ability to make men act like idiots around her. This was not convincing to this reader and meant that I was never entirely carried away by the book.

The hero, James Cordier, is an English spy who is trying to find some treasonous letters that Francesca apparently stole from her husband. Cordier's attention from his task tends to waver in her presence and he decides that the best way to get the letters is to seduce Francesca. It appears, however, that someone else may be after the letters - or perhaps may just be trying to kill Francesca. Can Cordier find the letters and keep Francesca safe?

The Venetian setting of this book was excellent with descriptive passages where we follow high-society people as they travel around on gondolas, attend balls and other events and hobnob with princes and diplomats. However the underlying story was perhaps a little thin and the difficulty I had with Francesca's character, and partly also with Cordier's, meant it wasn't an entirely satisfactory read.
