3.0 out of 5 stars Good story
Well written and amusing. Not as good as the other book by this author though, simply scandalous, which was excellent so I was slightly disappointed.

This review is from: Surrender to Sin (Mass Market Paperback)
Whiskey heiress Abigail Ritchie must leave London to escape a scandalous broken engagement. The perfect opportunity presents itself in the form of a man, one Cary Wayborn. His country estate offers a nice cottage that would be the perfect hiding place. However, like their strange first meeting, nothing goes right from the moment she and her small party enters Hertfordshire. Scandal seems determined to follow the young miss and this time it's in the form of the very amorous Cary and an amazing cast of secondary characters. The country's never seen a young lady like Abigail and thanks to mistaken identities, an evil parrot-resembling macaw and a mysterious disappearing act of some valuables, Abigail's life has become something fit for a comedic stage performance.

Cary Wayborn is in dire financial straights, so when the young miss he rescued on the streets of London turns up, he's more than happy to rent a cottage to her...or rather, happy that he will no longer lack for female companionship. What comes on the heels of Ms. Abigail is nothing short of confounding and just when he thinks he knows the young woman he's made his wife, something tests the limits of his forgiveness. When shocking truths come to light, will the two be able to find a peace to the precarious beginnings of their relationship?

This was such an interesting read. There were many times I had to put it down, out of frustration for some of the characters' actions. Something, though, kept me coming back and I realized it was the sheer comedy that the situations produced. Cary Wayborn--where do I start? I don't think I've ever read such a MAN in a historical romance novel. He makes it quite plain early on in the book that he wants Abigail and that may be where my initial frustration came in, his lust for lust's sake attitude. I'm really glad I held on though and kept reading because his whimsical, confounding and outrageous actions and words, where Abigail was concerned, literally had me rolling by the middle of the book. Abigail is unfortunately caught up in the middle of more than one sticky situation, but she finally seems to gain some luck where Cary is concerned. She's got spirit and a honest-to-goodness backbone, which comes out on more than one occasion. She's no pansy! I have to say; these two might end up being one of my favorite historical romance couples. The tension between them is good, their dialogue hilarious and everything they did made sense (by book's end). My one disappointment with the book is that the overall plot, that really tied all the subplots well, doesn't really get enough attention till the end. But when we finally get it, we get it in spades. This was a very enjoyable read, one I'd recommend to anyone that enjoys a healthy dram of comedy with their romance.
