My first time reading.this author. The book is well written with a lot of twists and.turns and.surprises. American heirrss is sold off.to and English Earl to save his estate. The Earl.abandons her on their wedding nigjt to.return.to his mistress. . After a.year of abandonment and scandal, Maggie hatches a plan to be rid of her absent husband. I would have given the book a five but I felt the crude language took away from what was a winderdully written love story.
I love Scarlett Scott. If you like clean romances, she’s not the author for you. That’s one of the things I love about her. She does her due diligence with historical research and weaves accurate details into her steamy fictional works.
This is one of my top three reads including Sweet Scandal and Her Deceptive Duke.
My opinion differs from other reviewers here. I think our heroine, Maggie, is a strong character. Don’t evaluate a regency character by contemporary social standards. Women had next to no rights back then!
I loved this book and have revisited it several times. Scott’s books are a wonderful escape!
