9780062244871: Love and Other Scandals

With Love and Other Scandals, bestselling and RITA Award–winning author Caroline Linden launches a scandalously sexy new historical romance series set in Regency England.
 
Joan Bennett is a breath away from being a spinster. She’s had four seasons without a suitor. After reading a shockingly sensuous book, Fifty Ways to Sin, Joan decides perhaps it’s time to stop being proper and start being sinful, while she’s still young enough to enjoy it. And what better partner than her brother’s drinking mate, Viscount Burke? He seems the type to know how to give a lady a lascivious adventure.
 
It seems that the viscount has qualms about trifling with a friend’s sister. That’s the way to end up betrothed. And he doesn’t want that—or does he?

Review:

“[T]he simplicity of Linden’s plot is its strength, making the romance feel real and natural and allowing her great skill at characterization to take the weight of the story. Joan and Tristan genuinely enjoy each other, and their chemistry is sparkling. A quiet gem.” (Publishers Weekly on LOVE AND OTHER SCANDALS)

From the Back Cover:

True Love . . .

Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a singlesuitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal.She's had just about enough of being a respectablewallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking ona life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the onesdescribed in a popular scandalous book. When she meetsher brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke,it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

Is Worth a Little Scandal . . .

Tristan Burke doesn't want a wife, and one can't triflewith a friend's sister without risking marriage. Even more,Joan's the last sort of woman he would ever choose: droll,sharp-witted, and always unfashionably dressed.If only he could stop thinking about her mouth. Or whatshe might look like without those horrid clothes.Or the way he can only win an argument with her bykissing her senseless . . . even though that just makes himwant her more. But more could lead to a betrothal,which he fears—or does he?

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Joan Bennet has: 4 Seasons in London, although one might argue that a Season spent as a wallflower is hardly a Season at all; 3 fashion mishaps of epic proportions, inflicted upon her by a mother determined that pink was her best color; 2 broken hearts, although both objects of affection turned out to be unworthy and her recovery was swift; 1 scandalous offer, which she longed to accept but in the end wasn t certain ruin would be worth it (with that man, anyway); and 0 marriage proposals. And she has had enough. If she can t be a respectable, happily married woman, she might as well embrace her fate and live it up, preferably as the kept woman of a rakish earl or similar exciting scoundrel, provided it s far enough away from London her mother will never find out. Tristan, Lord Burke, has: 4 clinging, pestering female relations bent on driving him insane; 3 favorite types of women: widowed, married, and willing; 2 months of homelessness, thanks to the decrepit roof of his townhouse, currently caved in and in dire need of replacement; 1 friend, Douglas Bennet, roguish and careless enough for him to impose upon for two months; and most importantly 0 interest in the smart-mouthed, sharp-witted, very buxom sister of Douglas Bennet. Because the last thing Tristan needs is a wife, and one can t trifle with a friend s sister without risking marriage. Moreover, Joan Bennet is the last sort of woman he would choose, even if he did need a wife. Despite her mouth. And her bosom. Or the fact that she might be truly delectable under her horrible clothes. Or the fact that the only way he seems able to win an argument with her is by kissing her senseless and yet he somehow keeps coming back for more. Bookseller Inventory # LIB9780062244871
