Two years ago, Caroline Carrington made the biggest mistake of her life; she rejected the man she loved. Now, she was back in London and ready to find a husband. But first, before proper Caroline did exactly what was expected of her, she wanted a little scandal, something to remember during her life as a perfect society wife. Who then, is better placed to help her with her quest than Tom Crawdon, the man whose mere presence still had the power to weaken her knees, and her heart? Tom had promised himself that he would never allow another woman to get under his skin the way Caroline Carrington had. He had returned to London intent on forgetting her and moving on with his life. She seemed to be on a mission to shake off her good girl reputation. And who better to help her than a notorious rake like him? But could he help her while still protecting her unblemished reputation? And what happened if she snuck her way right back into his heart?

"I picked up Seeking Scandal and didn't put it down until I was done with it - that my friends is the mark of an excellent book and an excellent writer!" Love Affair with Fiction
I think of this as the author's sophomore slump. The first book in this series was a delight! It is on my list of most enjoyable books. This one, however, didn't live up to my expectations. Caroline had too many occurrences of having her reputation ruined. Those words were repeated often enough but there was never anything really bad about what she did. In that regard, the book was boring. Nothing but a kiss really. And, for goodness sake, Tom and Caroline, talk to each other. Don't assume.
The witty conversations and experiences of the first book were not in this one and I missed them. I see that there is a third book (not on Audible yet) and I will read it at some point.
