Love in the Time of Scandal (Scandalous #3) by Caroline Linden - Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway

Love in the Time of Scandal
Scandalous # 3
By: Caroline Linden
Releasing May 26, 2015

The third book in a deliciously sexy series from USA Today bestselling and RITA award winning author Caroline Linden, in which an utterly shocking book--Ffty Shades of Grey for the Regency era-- has all of London talking and gives more than one young miss a mind for scandal.

Penelope Weston does not like Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton. He may be the suave and charming heir to an earl, as well as the most handsome man on earth, but she can’t forget how he abandoned a friend in need-nor how he once courted her sister, Abigail. He’s the last man she would ever marry. If only she didn’t feel so attracted to the arrogant scoundrel…

Once upon a time, Benedict thought he and Penelope got along rather well. But, though he needs a wealthy bride to escape his cruel father’s control, spirited Penelope just doesn’t suit his plans for a model marriage -- until a good deed goes awry, and scandalous rumors link his name to Penelope’s. She might not be the quiet, sensible wife he thought he wanted, but she is beautiful…beguiling…and far more passionate than he ever imagined. Can a marriage begun in scandal become a love match, too?

Deliciously sexy historical romance! Penelope and Benedict may not have started as a love match, but the chemistry was never missing. It was great to see Benedict fall for the girl he did not think he wanted, but turned out he needed. Penelope was not a sweet and demure heroine, but rather an outspoken and feisty one, which I really liked.  Their relationship progressed at a nice pace into love. Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Recommended to lovers of sexy historicals.
