Rating By Julia,06/02/2016

Arrandales Series 1 _ The Chaperon’s Seduction __________ 06/15 ~~~( Richard Arrandale and Lady Phyllida Tatham) This is the first book in the series of The Arrandales. They are known for their scandals. This story sees Richard who is the second son at a club when a wager is made. He is not keen on the nature of the wager but he decides to give it a go because the amount of money would help him with his estate. Known for seducing women. Richard does not lose time when his relative the Dowager Marchioness of Hune, Sophia, who he is staying with decides he should come to the pump room with her. There he meets the heiress all want to seduce. Catching the eye of several who are in the wager also there. He also gets a feeling about the Stepmother. Richard thinks he has seen her before but was not sure but his reaction to her was worrying to him. Later on his memory is jogged by Sophia. He had danced with Phyllida at Almack’s. Phyllida was married to a widow Sir Tatham in her first season. When she had her season she was very different to how she is now. She has never thought herself pretty and with her stepdaughter for all to compare the two, she knew that Ellen was prettier but this did not upset Phyllida. She loves Ellen as if she was her own. Ellen can be spirited and the Tatham family was not keen for Phyllida to chaperon her as she was not much older than her stepdaughter. Phyllida however noticed many men including married ones heading for her stepdaughter when they went out in society. Many events happen before Phyllida sees Richard as a threat to Ellen. Her own feelings confusing her. When she confronts Richard after an incident he assures her that he is not after Ellen. By this time Richard is being enchanted by Phyllida. Trust is abused and all does not appear to be going right. The wager is talked about and Sophia helps Richard by getting Phyllida and Ellen removed from Bath until Michaelmas. Things go bad to worse however for Richard and Phyllida. It has an abrupt ending and much is left in the air but it has great characters and a good story arc to set up the next stories. I hope that the author will give Ellen her story too.
