Publisher's Summary

Her Shocking Past... Raised as the youngest daughter of the Duke of Kendal, Elizabeth learns a devastating truth on his deathbed: he wasn't her father at all. And because the Duke had no sons, his title and fortune must go to his only male heir: a distant cousin who left England for America long ago. Anticipating the man's imminent occupation of her home, Elizabeth anxiously searches for her mother's diary, and the secret of her paternity.
Her Unexpected Future... Arriving in London with his seven siblings, William Atherton intends to sell everything and return to his beloved Virginia farm, and his fiance, as quickly as possible. But as Elizabeth shows William an England he never knew, and graciously introduces his siblings to London society, it becomes clear the two are meant for each other.
Soon, Elizabeth finds herself determined to seduce the man who can save not only her family name but her heart...

Scandalous Indeed!

I absolutely adore the series. I somehow managed to skip the first two books and read the third and I liked it so much that I purchased the last two books and read them all in three days. Now I must go back and read the first two books. The characters are built so completely that as a reader you really feel connected to them. Yes as most books go, in order to have the story last longer, the main characters always have to fight their inner feelings and go against what they truly want in order to “save” the person they love and this series is no different. To tell the truth I do not find this appealing at all in romance. Perhaps that is a personal fault of mine and not that of the author. And yes I do believe in sacrifice but once I make up my mind I dive in and don’t leave room for doubt and try never to second-guess myself. So it’s hard for me to see all the inner push and pull associated with characters in romance in general. Still, I strongly recommend at least the last three books I have read in the series regardless of my distaste for the parts mentioned.

Good Book You Will Enjoy

I enjoyed the main characters, but it got nerve racking with all the insecurities, just say what you mean. Part of the ending is sad, but greed, deceit and lies can destroy. I have listened to Ashford MacNab narrate for other books and they were ok, but not for this series.
