RUNNING FROM SCANDAL
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
The prodigal sister returns in this nicely written and sensitive chapter in McCabe’s Bancrofts of Barton Park duet. Including a darling little girl, meddling relatives and a bit of suspense, McCabe’s story charms readers and gives them an enjoyable, quick read.
Once Emma Bancroft was the quiet, bookish sister — then she married the wrong man. As a penniless widow, she returns to her childhood home in hopes of living in peace. Like Emma, David Marton desires nothing more than a quiet life for himself and his daughter. He too has felt the sting of betrayal and has no wish to wed again. Long ago there was a spark between David and Emma and, with a glance, that interest is rekindled. As love blossoms, a ruthless cousin, David’s sister-in-law, a conniving young woman and an old journal place obstacles in their path. But, with a push into scandal, love will prevail. (HARLEQUIN, Dec., 288 pp., $6.50)
