Publisher's Summary

When Lady Gabriella Banning receives word that her half brother, the Earl of Wickham, has died on his tea plantation, she faces the reality that she and her younger sisters are suddenly penniless - unless she thinks fast. Arranging Claire’s London season, Gabby pretends that Marcus is still alive, just until Claire can marry a fabulously wealthy nobleman. But when a handsome gentleman arrives claiming to be Marcus, Gabby’s plan backfires. If she exposes this mysterious stranger’s deceit, she exposes her own. Bound by secrets and lies, Gabby and the roguish adventurer strike sparks - and soon London society is abuzz over the scandalous “siblings” who appear to be falling in love....

    "Unexpected plot twists"

    As a romance novel junkie for over 30 years, I was actually pleasantly surprised by a couple of the plot changes in this book. Robards did a good job on this story. Well worth the listen. Good narrator.

    "Good Story!"

    Unlike some I've listen to lately, "Scandalous" actually has a story worth listening to ... intrigue, scandal and romance.

    It seems Justine Eyre's performance depends on the book she's reading -- she did well narrating "Scandalous".

    "Keep the Surprises Coming"

    This was the 1st Karen Robards Book I ever read and I go back to it again and again. The twists and turns in the plot keep the pages turning way past "lights out time" and I'm always biting my nails by the end I am just so nervous.
    This is a great addition to any Historical Romance fans collection.

    Story
    "Typical Regency Romance."

    I had read this book as a teenager and thought I really liked it. While I did enjoyed this book, it was nowhere as good as I thought it was when I was younger. Overall this is a typical regency romance. 3.5 overall it was and enjoyable story and would be a good book for a sale. I probably won't read the other two in the series. I tend to enjoy Karen Robards newer books that have more mystery in them. My favorites being Whisper at Midnight, One Summer, and Walking after Midnight. Narrator does a fairly good job.

    "Good story gets better as you get farther in"

    This was a decent story. Starts off a little slow but picks up towards the middle and is great at the end!

    "unsuitable Narrator"

    Story was worth the listen but the narrator voice tone and inflections sounded like a 17th century valley girl. Very grating.

    Story
    "The ending has holes (slight spoilers)"

    The ending has a lot of holes and doesn't really make sense for their future. If you think about it, their lives (whole family) are still rather ruined and they'll never be able to re-enter society since they aren't allowed to explain/reveal the truth to the public. They'd have to live isolated - not really a happy ending.

    "I loved it!"

    I loved this story. I finished it in one day. A love story with intrigue and a twist. Justine Eyre did a great job narrating. I recommend this book. I don't think you will be sorry.

    "Narrator ruined the book"
    What would have made Scandalous better?

    different narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Robards again?

    I usually love Karen Robards books but I tried several times unsuccessfully to finish this book ... all because of the narrator. She talks to fast and has no emotion in her reading.


    How could the performance have been better?

    see above


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Scandalous?

    didn't finish


    Any additional comments?

    I'll never get another book with Justine Eyre as the narrator
