    One thought on “Mistress of Scandal”

    1. The third and final book in this trilogy of sisters who were kidnapped as babies from their courtesan mother is such a disappointment. And this is coming from an author who has years of experience writing enjoyable historical romances. When you have constant eye rolling by the third chapter and throughout the book you know this was written on auto pilot. The premise looks to be interesting as mother "Madame Aphrodite" pays our hero Sebastian to try and find the evil ones responsible for stealing [...]

    2. I loved this book so much. It is yet again proof of why I love this genre so much. I didn't know it was the third book in a trilogy but that didn't matter. It stands alone by itself although I'll be definitively reading the first two books. In this book, we have Miss Francesca Greentree, the youngest daughter of Aphrodite, a courtesan. When she was just but a child, Francesca and her two older sisters were kidnapped and it wasn't until many years later that they found out who their real mother w [...]

    3. Imádom Sara Bennett regényeit. És ezzel is így voltam. Majdnem tökéletes volt. A romantika, erotika és humor egyvelege ismét levett a lábamról. Nagyon tetszett Fancesca és Sebastian kapcsolatának alakulása, és az is, hogy végre megtudhattuk pontosan mi is történt a három lánnyal annak idején. (Bár szerintem kiszámítható volt a dolog, nem okozott túl nagy meglepetést, ezért is a mínusz egy csillag.) Emellett pörgős, szórakoztató olvasmány volt ez a regény is. Ked [...]

    4. This one was heading towards a two star rating, but the final third of the book earned it the extra star.This was a pretty formulaic historical romance, which I actually don't mind at all if the story engages me. This one didn't very much until that final third of the book. Not really any one thing I can put my finger on, I liked the two leads well enough as well as some of secondary characters. I don't know. I just never really felt all that invested in any of them.I see that this is the third [...]

    5. I liked the intrigue in this book. It was interesting all the way through. I think I figured out who the bad guy was about a dozen times only to rethink it and talk myself out of it. My first instinct was wrong so the author did a great job there. It then turned into a nagging suspicion that proved right. I liked being tricked very much. All too often I've seen romance writers try to incorporate intrigue and it goes horribly wrong. Then there are Francesca and Sebastian! I LOVE them! Great chara [...]

    6. I read this book because I thought it was going to be a story about one of the charater in the novel "A Seduction in Scarlet" since in this story ther name gets mention a lot however I was dead wrong Marcus was mention is this book for about 5 minutes if not less. tghe book follow basically the same passion, mistery, and action. I would like for the brothers to have been given more life by the writer. I will try one more of her books before a final adios.

    7. The story reads like a rewriting of the "Who Shot JR?" season into a steamy, Victorian, "Who's Franchesca's Father?" whodunit that I actually quite enjoyed. Things came together a little too nicely in the end, though.

    8. Meh. All the pieces were here, but it was just missing that something. I found myself skimming long sections of the book.

    9. part 3nice completion of the 3 sisters. a seduction in scarlet is the next book featuring many of the same characters
