4.0 out of 5 stars A good book, 11 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: A Scandalous Marriage (Mass Market Paperback)
Leah Carrollton breaks the rules of society in 19th century England and gets pregnant without being married. Alone and without money or hope, Devon Marshall, viscount Huxholds, finds her in a cottage on the coutryside. Devon fell in love with Leah when she was a celebrated debutante and cannot believe that she choose another man, which abandoned her pregnant. Despite this, and much to his own surprise, Devon decides to marry Leah and accept the baby as his own. Devon has a reputation of a scoundrel and is famous for going his own way. However, even for him, to marry the infamous Leah, is in the eyes of society chocking and almost unforgivable. I enjoyed this book very much. The author has been able to write about Leah's and Devon's insecurity of their own feelings in a realistic but yet very romantic way.

This review is from: A Scandalous Marriage (Mass Market Paperback)
This book had me hooked from the moment I read the first few lines. I even stopped working just to read it!
Few people can reinvent a story and make it worth the read. This story follows a similar line to Romeo and Juliet, however, the characters are far more interesting and the passion between them is strong but is cleverly controlled throughout. Many will find this aspect of the novel annoying and tedious but it is the control that helps emphasize the love and magic between the two. The hero is Devon Huxhold and his heroine is Leah Carrolton. Their families are sworn enemies but the two come together, certain events unfold and they separate. They meet again at a farmhouse where Leah is pregnant and Devon needs a new horse as he needs to get to London pronto. The first part of the novel is about their first encounters and then the second of what happens after the birth of Leah's baby.
This is my third Cathy Maxwell, and it is, in my opinion, one of her best. She combines all the aspects of love, passion, romance, betrayal, need, familial obligation, greed and hatred in one stunning novel. Most definitely worth a read!
