A SEASON OF SCANDAL

Richard, Lord Ledbury, has had his fair share of adventure on warring battlefields, but even this seasoned soldier isn’t prepared for the outrageous escapades going on in London’s ballrooms! Lady Jayne Chilcott is under orders to find a husband, and Lord Ledbury has caught her eye.

But nothing is simple when courting under the glittering spotlight of the ton. Richard has always risen to any challenge, but Lady Jayne might just be the first to get the better of him… Let the games begin!

An escapade and an engagement

Rating By Yvette, 28 Jun 2012

Appologies, but I found this book heavy, dull, boring and unrealistic. I just felt that the author spoke only of they feelings rather than actual conversation between themselves. I really can't see that if they had true love for each other, they would have encouraged each other to go separate ways for romance elsewhere. Sorry can't see that.

Pleasant

Rating By R, 01 Jul 2012

A familiar Regency romp from Mrs Burrows with a feisty if headstrong and sometimes stupidly impetuous heroine in Jayne and tantalising but surprisingly malleable hero in Richard. There are shades of Jane Austen's Emma as Jayne tries to organise other peoples' lives. A pleasant read if not quite up to the author's usual standard Seven out of ten
