Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel
Welcome also to Steamy Saturdays!
This is the day of the week where I post a review of a book that is on the steamier side of romance. Today’s selection, To Sins With Scandal by Tamara Gill, is a book that I reviewed for The Romance Reviews some time ago. Great choice for a short read!
To Sin with Scandal by Tamara Gill
Publisher: Noble Romances
Source: I received a copy of this book from TRR to read and review
One night of passion with the notorious rake, Lord Scandal. Every need satisfied, nothing expected in return. All Lady Miranda Fitsimmon has to do is keep her rendezvous with the man secret from the ton and her heart inured to the memory of their past.
Lord Scandal, otherwise known as Lord Sedley, no longer desires such meaningless liaisons in the ton. His taste for bed sport has changed. He only desires one woman to warm his sheets. And when the woman he thought never to see grace his home walks into his library and expects all her desires to be sated, his resolve to redeem himself is tested.
Can one night of sin give them both what they crave the most? Or will past wounds be too deep to forgive and forget?
To Sin with Scandal explores the topic of ‘One More Chance At Love’ when Miranda sees an opportunity to recapture what she missed out on with her first love, Merrick. Have too many years passed for them to recapture their love, are there too many hurt feelings? Enjoy finding out in this chemistry rich, fast moving story!
To Sin with Scandal was a completely delightful read! Lady Miranda Fitsimmon has been in love with Merrick, Lord Sedley since she was young. After seeing him in the arms of another woman, she rashly agrees to marry another man. Now that he husband is dead, she is free and her year of mourning is past. She is determined to do what society’s rules prevented her from doing all those years ago – have one steamy night with Merrick!
After the disappointment of losing Miranda to another man, Lord Sedley has immersed himself in a life of meaningless sex – becoming better known as Lord Scandal. Recently, however, things have changed, he has decided that he is tired of that life and means to change.
This 22 page short story is filled with detail. It feels longer than it is! The characters of Miranda and Merrick are very well written. The turmoil that the young Miranda goes through is completely fitting with her age. Although I think Merrick should have pursued Miranda more vigorously, he didn’t. As a result, they are in the position they are in now. And as they are adults they can follow their desires when they couldn’t when they were younger. The action is colorfully written. The reader can envision themselves standing in the ballroom listening to the conversations!
Although this book is short, it packs a punch. Although I wish it was a longer story, it held it’s own as is. A great little read to pick up and provide entertainment for a short time!
It is currently prices at $1.50 at Amazon so snap up a copy!
