Book Review - The Seduction of Scandal by Cathy Maxwell - K.I.S.S. and Teal

Today's book featured during the K.I.S.S. and Teal campaign is Cathy Maxwell's charming "The Seduction of Scandal."

About The Book:

It’s never wise to blackmail a highwayman.

Lady Corinne, rebellious daughter of the duke of Banfield, refuses to marry Lord Freddie Sherwin. Yes, he’s the catch of the Season and the man her father chose for her. He’s also the most despicable male of her acquaintance. With her wedding only weeks away, she flees and finds herself a prisoner of the notorious Thorn!

Who says the devil isn’t a woman?

The rich and powerful tremble at the highwayman’s name, while England’s villagers rejoice in his bold exploits. His identity is a secret; his life a mystery— until Lady Corinne tumbles into his arms. If the Thorn wants her silence, he must hide her until her wedding day passes. It’s a devil’s bargain and one that can only lead to a hangman’s noose.

Corinne believes it the perfect plan—until her highwayman reveals a passionate lover’s heart, and she realizes that in the seduction of scandal, she may have found the hero she’s been waiting for her whole life.

I am a big fan of Cathy Maxwell's writing!  She has a delightful way of weaving humor and romance together into her stories that make reading her books just an absolute joy. Her latest novel, "The Seduction of Scandal" is no exception to this rule!

Her heroine, Lady Corrine, is fiesty and headstrong, and her hero, the good Reverend William Norwich is smart, handsome, and not without a little fiestiness himself!  Their personalities play off of one another perfectly throughout this romp of a story, and the action moves along at a nice clip of a pace that will keep the reader entralled to the very end. And the love scenes - oh my goodness!!!

If you like romance with a bit of fun to it, you'll love Cathy Maxwell!  I know I do!
