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.

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.

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.
