Review: The Perfect Scandal by Delilah Marvelle
Scandal was the last thing on their minds
If there is anything Tristan Adam Hargrove, fourth Marquis of Moreland, has learned to avoid, it’s scandal. For the dark and dashing lord is not only an honorable gentleman who would never seduce a woman for his own gain, he is also the author of How to Avoid a Scandal, the infamous red book that has swept like wildfire through the better part of London society.
When a raven-haired beauty arrives as his new neighbor, he knows better than to succumb to the desire he feels. He knows little about her — only that she is high born, a protégé of the Crown and completely unsuitable for the base passions he hides from the world. If only he had never glimpsed the vulnerable beauty one fateful night. If only her lips were not so ravishingly red. If only it were not already too late to save her and himself from the untamed passion he is about to unleash in the name of love.
– I am pleased to report that…The Perfect Scandal is a rocking good read. I admit to being hesitant read this book because I simply loved the previous titles. Lately I’ve experienced an epidemic of series books that start off with a bang and end with a fizzle and luckily, this book does not follow that depressing trend.
Marvelle is a talented writer with a deft hand at characterization and dialogue. I really enjoy the fact that the author isn’t afraid to tackle difficult / delicate subject matter. The Perfect Scandal is darker than the first two installments but the ending will simply make you sigh with pleasure. ~ Ana, www.ireadromance.com
