Genre: Historical Romance
After making his fortune in India, Gideon Harwood returns home to find
Though honor would demand that Gideon refuse to marry Lady Julia, he knows she can insure his sisters' social success. He makes one demand in return: that Julia pretends theirs is a love match.
To get Julia to go along with his scheme, her father lies, convincing her she must marry to save the family from scandal. Thus, she must pretend to love Gideon, but vows to show him how much she despises him.
Julia's siblings, Gideon's sisters, her vicious aunt and, most of all, Gideon's Indian servant and his pet slow loris (similar to a lemur or a monkey) are an unforgettable secondary cast. Overall SCANDAL is utterly engaging and highly romanticexpect to be left clamoring for the next book in this new trilogy. SENSUAL (Jan., 400 pp., $5.99)
