The rules of courtship are swept out to sea when a shipwreck offers a Reckless Bride a true taste of paradise… CAN A WHIRLWIND ROMANCEIn Elizabeth Essex's A Scandal to Remember, for too long, Miss Jane Burke’s father has taken advantage of her painstaking research. Heading to the South Seas to make her own name as a scientist despite the crew’s insistence that a woman aboard is bad luck, she isn’t prepared to be championed by a handsome ship’s officer who rouses longings inside her as wild as any storm… LEAD TO A PROPER PROPOSAL? For Lieutenant Charles Dance, a post on His Majesty’s survey ship Tenacious is just one more dutiful rung on the ladder of his career. Even a headstrong bluestocking on board is less troubling than the ship’s drunken captain—and the ferocious gales that drive the ship off course. Stranded on a remote island, passion blazes between them as hot as the sun, but it’s Jane’s love that Charles wants forever… "A sophisticated blend of vivid historical detail, exquisite characterization, and delicious sexual tension." —USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean
Epic in Scope and Grandeur! A Wonderful Historical Romantic Adventure!!
I won this book in a GoodReads First Reads Contest! This is the first book I have read by Elizabeth Essex and it most certainly won't be my last! This was a beautiful historical romance with such exquisite attention to detail that the reader will feel transported back in time. The language, details in propriety and locations immerses the reader early 19th century England and adventures on the high seas! I fell in love with Dance and Jane's story and found I had a difficult time of putting it down! I loved every delicious romantic second of this wonderful book! I highly recommend it!
