Lady Evelyn Darlington's first love was the law. But since a woman scholar meets nothing but ridicule from men, she has given up and chosen a future husband. Randolph seems adequate for the task: to provide intelligent conversation and not annoy her too much. Of course, before they can be engaged, she'll have to do something about the murder charge hanging over his head. If only London's top barrister wasn't Jack Harding, object of all her unattainable girlhood fantasies. . .
And Seducing Scandal. . .
Jack Harding remembers Evelyn well—but the idea that the gorgeous woman standing before him is little Evie, the professor's daughter, is incredible. He knows better than to enter a business relationship when he wants to pursue pleasure. Yet however desirable she is now, Evie is still Evie—stubborn, smart, and never willing to take no for an answer. Even though proving her fiance's innocence might just cost her her own. . .
My Rating: 5 out of 5
I was in my local Barnes and Noble and Tina Gabrielle was there signing books. SO I absolutely HAD to get one and I found out she lives near me! Awesomeness! Anyway, I devoured this book. I loved how strong and intelligent the heroine is in this and how the hero isn't just accepting of her brains but loves her more for them! The mystery in this book was, to be honest, the best I've read in a romance in a VERY long time. I didn't guess who the killer at all, I couldn't. They all looked guilty. I was on the end of my seat, turning pages as fast as I could at the end. This is a must read!
