My Lord Scandal by Emma Wildes download in iPad, pdf, ePub
Amelia Patton wasn't as take charge, but she was direct, didn't act coy and although she knew she shouldn't be attracted to Alex, she just couldn't help herself so she went for it full-throttle. Yeah an old family feud is somewhat of a barrier, but not to two people who didn't really know those involved and acknowledge that they want to be together.
This is a very endearing couple who learn to care for each other very much. There was a cute second romance plot that I enjoyed. He scares her, but Amelia is quickly intrigued by him even being there and gets over her fear.
For a woman like Amelia, that's like throwing gasoline on a flame - and that's exactly what happens when these two get near each other. This doesn't mean there aren't any secrets in the story. Anyway, I did enjoy their story and found it a refreshing change.
When Amelia next sees Alex and asks her aunt who he is, she finds out that he is not to be acknowledged, spoken to or be near him, ever. And once again, that will teach me.
Slim fingers worked the fastenings of her gown and in a whisper of silk, it slid off her pale shoulders. It wasn't widely known, but the debutante committed suicide because she couldn't be with the man she loved and Alex's grandfather killed Amelia's in a duel. He lowered his head, brushed his mouth against hers for a moment, a mere tantalizing touch of his lips. If anything happens, if any stumbling block is thrown out - at any point in the story, they tell each other.
The novel begins with Lord Alexander St. Amelia's grandfather was married and having an affair with a debutante - who happened to be Alex's grandfather's sister. Hiding in the shadows on the balcony, Alex thoughts turn immediately to the beautiful woman in the room, not to his escape. Wildes because I like her heroines. Not just Alex and Amelia, but the secondary characters too.
Then, instead of kissing her, his hand slid into her hair and he gently licked the hollow of her throat. So in an effort to take it back stealthily, Alex breaks into Amelia's home while the Patton's are at a ball and starts looking around. And it had a smart heroine.
As you can see, there is a lot that is good with My Lord Scandal. During their search of the home, the gentleman are shocked to discovered that one member of the family has returned home earlier than expected. It was interesting to read a book that was actually about a couple who fall in love, are honest with each other, never have regrets after sex, and when he proposes, she accepts. Wildes had me cheering on this endearing couple as they fight for their happily ever after. She stepped free of the pooled fabric, wearing only a thin, lacy chemise, all gold and ivory in the flickering illumination.
