Image of It Started with a Scandal: Pennyroyal Green Series

Pennyroyal Green’s new inhabitants are sure to pique readers’ interest as Long delivers another wonderfully romantic read. Both fans of the series and new readers alike will find this touching romance a perfect complement to Long’s other fast-paced, sexually charged, fabulous novels.

An indiscretion leaves Elise Fountain without family, friends or her position as teacher at a girls’ school. She is intent upon surviving, if not for herself, then for her 6-year-old son, Jack. Elise is fortunate to be recommended as a housekeeper for Lord Philippe Lavay; Elise has no idea he works undercover for the Crown. All she knows is that he is a Prince of the House of Bourbon, cantankerous and too handsome for his own good. Though Philippe does his best to frighten Elise away, she sees the pain he is in and endeavors to soothe his injuries — and his soul. Their verbal sparring ignites their desire, but Elise knows nothing can come of their passion. Philippe, however, is willing to fight for her love, even if it means replacing old dreams with new hopes. (AVON, Apr., 384 pp., $7.99)
