Publisher's Summary

Scandal follows Rose Barclay, young widow of the Duke of Southdown, wherever she goes. It's never her fault, but newspapers love to write about the simple girl from Scotland and the much older duke who died suddenly on their honeymoon. And now there is even more talk as the legitimacy of the marriage is being contested by the duke's son and heir. Steven McBride is a decorated soldier-and a notorious gambler and womanizer. The last thing he wants is marriage, but due to a series of unfortunate events, his and Rose's names are linked in the papers, threatening the lovely lady with ruin. To save the day, Steven suggests that they claim to be engaged. But as desire boils between them, Rose and Steven soon learn the difficulties of maintaining their deception, which might not be a lie after all....

Terrific read..

Any additional comments?

So, 5 two stars and 52 four and five stars on Amazon.. Go figure..
As with ALL the Mackenzie books, except Daniel's story that I haven't gotten to yet, I simply loved this story. Loved Steven and Rose, what an awesome twosome. And it was nice seeing Ian, Beth, Ainsley, Cam, and Sinclair, even if it was them having lines in the book or just a mention that they were there. Wonderful storyline and some great sexual tension and sex. You just can't go wrong with the Mackenzies and McBrides.
Just ignore the lower reviews cuz I highly recommend this read..

As to the narrator: Ms. Dawe gets better with each book she reads. As with a lot of the female narrators all her men sound almost alike but at least they sound like men. All she needs to do is work on her emotions and she'll be an awesome narrator.

Sweet, quick story ... Nice addition to the series

One thing I see..the McBride's claim thier women quick! They either marry the woman right away, get engaged right away or move them in the house right away!

I enjoyed this short novella about Steven and Rose
Their relationship is filled with sexual tension, but they are cute at the same time.

The mystery of the story held my interest and the plot was imaginative. I also found myself laughing a few times. Overall I liked it.

Excellent as always. This lived up to expectations from this author and I like the narrator.

The plot twists are good and lead to a happy ending. I also like the references and inclusion of other family members, especially Ian.

Well worth reading.
