This is the first book iv read by Vanessa Kelly and for sure now it will not be the last. I love historical romances they make me travel back in time to view others love from a different era.

What a fantastic read, this book is well paced and very easy to read and follow. the characters are very well written and each took a spot in my heart. I adored Edie and her spunky ways she is so lively and bright a great heroine for this book.
What a soft spot i have for Alasdair swoon, he is so gallant and debonair no wonder so many ladies had fallen for him, but he only has eyes for Edie.
I also very much enjoyed Edie mother she was so formidable smile emoticon
what more do you need but a scandal a great romance with some thrills along the way.
