MacLean has the magic touch: the ability to use the perfect words to elicit an emotional response that makes readers laugh, cry, and sigh with pleasure. This lovely story is perfect in so many ways; it's funny, with rapier wit, sweet and super-sexy, one of those stories you'll keep close to your heart.-- "RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)"
Spellbinding...Readers will be intoxicated by the emotional connection between the lovers, which makes their banter that much more amusing and their eventual physical passion that much more satisfying...Comedy, action, secrets, and love: this book has it all.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
This refreshing romp is both a thrilling, often funny romantic journey and a delicious, scathing commentary on upper-class pre-Victorian society. A roguish hero who's not quite the cad he's supposed to be and a bright, resourceful heroine who's anything but dull drive each other to distraction-and into love...A purely delightful diversion (and who wouldn't love the title?).-- "Library Journal (starred review)"
Another triumph of delicious wit and delectable sensuality that will solidify her reputation as the go-to author for readers searching for smartly written, stunningly sexy historical romances.-- "Booklist (starred review)"
MacLean's elegant writing, brisk storytelling, and clever dialogue are frosting on the cake of Sophie's compelling romance, and they'll hook the reader into this new series about the risque Talbot sisters, who must forge a path through a hostile social structure. MacLean's latest shines with the intensity, wit, and emotion for which she's celebrated.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Justine Eyre narrates this first volume of the Scandal and Scoundrel series in a crisp British accent...Eyre gives Sophie, the most practical of the Talbot sisters, a voice to match her temperament-strong, determined, and generally even. She reads King with a deeper pitch and a controlled tone. Listeners will especially enjoy the passionate scenes in which the tension crackles. Narrating these parts of the story at a slow pace, with ample pauses and changes in tone, Eyre fully captures the connection between the pair and the depth of their evolving relationship.-- "AudioFile"
