Bound by a Scandalous Secret (The Scandalous Summerfields)
By Diane Gaston
As far as the Marquess of Rossdale is concerned Genna Summerfield is a breath of fresh air. Tired of fending off matchmaking mothers and their matrimony-minded daughters, Ross can’t quite get over the fact that Genna isn’t interested in marriage, which gives him a brilliant idea. If Genna will agree to become his faux fiancée for the Season, then Ross will not have to worry about any other female trying to ensnare him in the parson’s mousetrap. In exchange, Genna will be able to enjoy her own freedom from the pressure of finding a suitable husband for a while longer. However, what starts out as a simple plan between friends becomes something much more complicated once Ross and Genna both realize their feelings for each other are something much different than those of friends.
Bound by Scandal’s beautifully matched protagonists, plethora of potent sexual chemistry, impeccably researched historical setting, and a satisfying measure of sharp wit make the it, the latest sterling addition to her “Scandalous Summerfields” series, a rare treat for fans of Regency-set historicals.
