WHISPER OF SCANDAL
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Consummate storyteller Cornick incorporates guilt, deception, misunderstandings and a devastating secret along with powerful emotion to craft a sexually charged and passionate adventure romance readers will adore.
When Navy Captain Alex, Lord Grant, arrives at Lady Joanna Ware’s to offer belated condolences on the death of his best friend and her husband, Joanna uses Alex’s interruption to get rid of an unwanted suitor. She calls him darling and then kisses him. Both are taken aback by the sensual intensity of the kiss, especially since they don’t like one another. To make matters worse, they must travel to the arctic and bring her husband’s child back to London. Circumstances force them into a marriage of convenience, but their journey changes things between them. Yet it could all end in betrayal unless they open their hearts to the healing power of love.
