Scandal author Amanda QuiE has all of London cowering at his feet but not Emily never Emily For even as she surrenders to his seductive charms she knows the real reason for his amorous suit And she knows that she must reach the heart of this golden eyed dragon before the avenging demons of their entwined pasts destroy the only love she has ever known From the Paperback editi. Scandal is the story of Emily and SimonOur heroine is the youngest in the Faringdon clan and the smartest Taking care of the financial investments of her family and friends she spends her days lost in literary pursuits and is happy being a spinster The society shunned her after a minor youthful indiscretion but the ladies of her poetry club took her in She starts corresponding with a mysterious pen pal who then turns out to be the hero He enters her life instantly charming her and proposing marriage But the reason behind his haste is not love but vengeance Years ago the hero's family had been responsible for him being fatherless and destitute and now the mysterious Earl of Blade is out for revengeOk So I really like the smart heroine strong hero mystery tropes in Amanda uick books However this was one of the disappointing ones I think there was a dichotomy in the heroine's behavior and her thoughts On one hand she was this independent woman who was as intelligent as she was caring on the other hand she was impulsive and oblivious Her accepting the hero's proposal marrying him despite being aware of his intentions easily giving in coming up with utter hair brained schemes believing the man who tried to ruin her and her father are just a few examples of her simple mindedness I think her character seemed very disjointed The hero was a brooding ass who falls for the heroine has wild sex with her but keeps assuring himself that he's evil and heartlessNow that I have whined about the negatives here are the things I DID like were tolerable her whole obsession with hero and him being a dragon her loyalty towards those she loved which includes the hero and how protective she was about them the smoking hot lovemaking scenesThe whole metaphysical thing was absurd thoughThis was an average readSafe255

A few campy chuckling moments due to naive heroine but plot was weak My mind kept wanderingThis author has written many books under the names Jayne Ann Krentz Amanda uick and Jayne Castle She has a wonderful writing style and can make almost anything entertaining But I feel like she ran out of ideas as if she pulled the words charming eccentric naive romantic female out of a hat and tried to do something with it again Then she added brilliant business financial mind The positive was that I chuckled several times But the plot took away from enjoyment It consisted of two main ideas Simon takes action to cover up Emily’s scandal from the past and Simon plans vengeance on some men The vengeance idea petered out It was not intriguingExamples of things that made me chuckle Freuently Emily says that she and Simon communicate on a metaphysical or transcendental planelevelrealm She says sex will be a wondrous transcendental experience for people like them She believed that Simon did not He just said what he thought she wanted to hearAnother Emily tells the footman to find a person from the criminal class to kidnap someone for her When she meets with that person she says “are you a professional villain for hire”The relationship between Simon and Emily happened too uickly not enough story about that He pretends to be interested in the same poetry and literature as she That is why she thinks they communicate on a higher plane But they meet and uickly marry There is no interesting push pull between themOne odd thing about Emily She was a financial genius in the stock and commodities markets making money for others think Warren Buffett To do that she needed knowledge about the competence of managers in companies and projects A little hard to believe she could have that knowledge when she lived in the country and her only social interaction was a lady’s discussion group about romantic literature I don’t mind suspending disbelief for a good story But this didn’t work A better story would be seeing how Emily learned things in the markets and how she outsmarted other investors But that was not hereThe narrator Anne Flosnik was pretty good but her voices for men sounded weird I prefer Susan Duerden who is good with male voicesDATANarrative mode 3rd person Unabridged audiobook length 12 hrs and 5 mins Swearing language mild Sexual language mild Number of sex scenes 7 Setting early 1800s England Book copyright 1991 Genre regency romance

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceScandal is a tale of a fiery dragon and the woman that out of love and devotion would become his own fire breathing dragoness “My God Emily” For a moment the world seemed to halt She could barely breathe let alone respond “Emily open your eyes and look at me”Dreamily Emily lifted her lashes and looked up into Simon’s harshly carved face He was so close that she could see him without the aid of her spectacles She was fascinated by the glittering heat that had washed away the coldness in his eyes Fire lit the beautiful golden gaze now a wild flame of masculine desire held under rigid control “Dragon” she whispered softly touching his hard cheek with gentle fingers “My very own golden eyed dragon”He narrowed his eyes as he stared down at her “Dragons have a dangerous reputation around fair maidens”She smiled softly up at him “’Tis no use breathing fire and smoke in an attempt to frighten me my lord I know I am uite safe with you” Scandal is the first book that I have read from Amanda uick although I have read some of her titles under her other name Jayne Anne Krentz this was my first time picking up one of her historical titles that she has written  I will admit that I had high hopes for this book and to be uite frank I really didn't know what to fully expect from this book And I can honestly say that this book was spectacular and I didn't want to put this amusing historical down and if you looking for an honest in depth well written dynamic readgrab up Scandal or any of her other titles Now I will admit that Scandal has the feel of an older style romance but not in ways you imagine I will be honest and admit I miss this style of writing in historical romance especially I really enjoyed the dynamics and what a well written book this is I mean honestly its been a while since I have picked up a book so well written and detailedScandal begins with our hero seeking revenge against the families that wronged him and his family The reasons behind his father's suicide and his mother being forced to live in the north and soon dying herself and where Simon soon learns that not everything goes according to plan Emily has been corresponding with the love of her life in letters and exchanging love of literature and romantic poetry Emily knows that Simon is her future but she never really imagined that she would meet him in real life Or that he would share certain delights and passion or agree to marry her But Emily soon learns that her father wronged Simon's she understand than anyone realizes and soon Simon and Emily both find that love heals wounds in ways you least expectNow I honestly became uickly immersed in Scandal and it had a sense of uirkiness to the story that I found simply delightful Now first we have our two main characters Our hero Simon is used to be feared He spent many years in India and deals with problems the way they do He has power and wealth and everyone tends to fear him But there is one person that doesn't fear him at allEmily Emily at first I wasn't uite sure how I felt about her But she is not what she seems to be on the surface We see her in the beginning being so immersed in poetry and romance and she seems to be a bit dim witted at times But she is way clever than all that Ever since she was seventeen she has managed to save her reckless father and brothers and handling their gambling debts again and again She is left alone on the estate unless they need funds But she knows everything good about making smart investments She also has a character that you rarely see in romance and I found her to be so refreshing and crafty She is one of those uniue characters that keep you on your toes because I NEVER knew what to expect from her Some of the plans she hatches I kept thinking poor Simon he has no idea what he is in for here but he does handle it with patience and grace so I have to applaud him for thatI also really liked the ways that these two falls in love and the little ways that they build upon the desire they feel that slowly develops into a strong love where they protect each other no matter what Their intricate dealings with society the precise details that are written that make this era just come alive for the reader And of course seeing how love does change you in some positive ways The changes we most especially see in Simon was uite frankly speaks of the talent to Amanda uick He has such a complex character and seeing how his affection and love that he develops for Emily changes how he deals with his enemies even “I am trying to tell you that I probably do not deserve you elf but I will kill anyone who tries to take you away from me” His golden eyes flashed in the candlelight “In that way I believe we must be two of a kind” Scandal is a uick witter and a story full of clever plot runs delightful characters whose story ends up give you all the feels and offers an in depth look at the regency era in the ways it was meant to be written SUPERB
