Really enjoyed this one, it kept me glued to the couch.
One of my favorite of the Cynster Series!
Another winner from Ms. Laurens!
I love every book I've read by Stephanie Laurens. She has a great sense of humor and her series are connected nicely.
Not bad, but lost momentum half way through. Had trouble finishing. Devil's Bride was better.
Excellcent series...Richard's(Scandal) story
I have the whole series(all 16)Wish had gotten them in hard back so they won't wear out so fast. This is a series I will read over and over again.
Another book about one of the Cynster family. You can't go wrong with this author.
Such a great book, so much love and wisdom show through. The growing faith in each other was touching.
Powerful hero and a great story.
Great book in the Cynster series.
"He will father your children..."
When Catriona Hennessy, honorable Scottish Lady of the Vale, received this prediction, she was exceedingly aghast. How could she unite with a rake like Richard Cynster--
a masterful man with a scandalous reputation?
More shocking still was her guardian's will decreed she and Richard be wed within a week! Though charmed by his commanding presence and wooed by his heated kissed, she would not--could not-- give up her independence. So she formed a plan to get the heir she needed without taking wedding vows.
Spoiler"... I can only give Laurens' "Scandal's Bride" 3 stars. While enjoyable there is one plot in the book that really bothered me. Catriona, believing Richard is to be the destined father of her children but unwilling to allow him in her life, drugs Richard so that she can love him and leave him. I know this is fiction and fantasy (I often suspend belief when reading paranormal romances) but the thought of drugging anyone for sex, even if he did enjoy it, is terrible. If it had been a man drugging a woman, it would have been rape.
Once you get past the drug scene, Catriona accepts Richard in her life and we see them adjust as a married couple. I enjoyed this portion of the story.
Good book if you like the genre
