About the Author
Christina Dodd is the author of over twenty-three romances that made regular appearances on the bestseller lists, including "The New York Times." She has won numerous awards: Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart and RITA Awards. New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens began writing as an escape from the dry world of professional science. Her hobby quickly became a career, and her series of historical romances set in Regency England about the masterful Cynster cousins has captivated readers, making her one of the romance world's most beloved and popular authors. Celeste Bradley is the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Scoundrel in My Dreams," "Desperately Seeking a Duke," and the Royal Four and Liars Club series, among many others. Prior to giving writing a try, Celeste was a professional artist. Believing that storytelling is as much of an art form, she applies those skills to writing. She is a two-time RITA Nominee and winner of the prestigious Historical Storyteller of the Year from "Romantic Times Book Reviews." Mother of two teen divas, Southern-born Celeste lives in the Southwest. Her hobbies include gardening, jewelry making and collage. She feels very strongly that literacy can change lives. Leslie LaFoy grew up loving to read and living to write. (This was a significant factor in her becoming the unofficial poster child of over-education. In the Liberal Arts, no less.) After teaching high school history for many years, she focused her creative energies on her life-long dream of writing full time. When not made completely oblivious to reality by her current work in progress, she dabbles in every handicraft known to womankind and, twice a week and every other weekend, dons her cape to be Hockey Team Mom.

In Melting Ice by Stephanie Laurens, childhood sweethearts Dyan St. Laurent and Lady Fiona have found each other and the love they lost in a most uncommon place, an orgy! Despite their odd meeting they clear up all misconceptions that have kept them separated for years and rekindle the fire between them.
Alfred Knight, in Celeste Bradley's Wedding Knight, has lived his entire life trying to avoid scandal. Little does he know he will marry directly into it when he chooses his bride to be. She is nothing she appears to be, but everything he needs.
Julia Hamilton, a recent widow, is now engaged to be married in three days, but a secret love has returned and intends to seduce her and make her his wife. Leslie LaFoy's The Proposition keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering who will Julia choose.
Not one for romance, I found myself enjoying the four tales of love, lust and deceit. These ladies know their craft and have converted me into a fan of romantic fiction.

"Melting Ice" by Stephanie Laurens. After a decade in India, Dyan St. Laurent Dare comes home when his brother died making him a duke and quickly wants Lady Fiona Winston-Ryder as his wife because he loves her. A debauched gala gives him the opportunity to serve as her gallant rescuer and hopefully forever lover.
"Wedding Knight" by Celeste Bradley. In 1813 Alfred Knight avoids scandal so no one can point the finger that he is just like his mother, which leads to his agreeing to wed Betina Trapp who wants nothing to do with him. Betina persuades her twin Kitty to take her place temporarily as Alfred's fiancée. Kitty falls in love but she fears he will drop her once the subsequent scandal erupts that the switch will cause.
"Proposition" by Leslie LaFoy. In 1877 Lord Rennick St. James knows that the clock is ticking against him as the woman he always loved Julia Hamilton is engaged to someone else. Just back in England, he has four days to seduce the widow into marrying him or face cold self imposed exile again.
These four nineteenth century historical romances are fine novellas that fans will appreciate because the lead couple in each case seems genuine as they star in a scandalous fun frolic.
Leslie LaFoy who is a totally unknown new author to me intrigued and entertained me thoroughly with her passionate story called, "THE PROPOSITION" ~ 4 stars.
Stephanie Laurens, "MELTING ICE" ~ 4 1/2, is an amazingly written, delicious story and my favorite of the group. Last but not least is Christina Dodd's steamy and fun, "THE LADY AND THE TIGER" ~ 4 stars.
I enjoyed each and every one of these talented author's stories. They were all entertaining and did a great job showcasing their work. I appreciate the chance to read four new author's inside one book.
I happily recommended "My Scandalous Bride". It's a keeper! Enjoy!
I humbly recommend reading this collection: each one of the novelettes is fun, is historically well referenced and agile in plot developing.
