Highly anticipated second book in Christina McKnight’s Craven House Series!
COURTSHIP WAS NEVER SO SCANDALOUS
The grandson of an unconventional marquis and son of a notorious woman, Elijah Watson, Marquis of Ridgefeld, has spent most of his life outside of London. His atypical upbringing has left him longing for roots and a traditional family life, and he’s determined to live his life above reproach. When he meets Miss Samantha Pengarden, he believes he’s found the woman he wants to marry—except she has other far more sensual ideas for him.
Known throughout the ton as the illegitimate rebellious daughter of London’s disreputable Craven House Madame, Samantha has never had to face the world without her shy twin by her side—until now. Her sister’s marriage and the return of her blackguard father leaves her alone and adrift. When Elijah agrees to escort her to the town’s most infamous establishments, she thinks she’s finally found a man with a taste for scandal and a knowledge of matters of the flesh.
But she never counted on Elijah being so honorable. When Samantha is listed as the mistress of the Marquis of Ridgefeld in White’s betting book, her reputation is in ruins—and only Elijah can save her. Can two total opposites come together for a love certain to last a lifetime?
What a delightful book. Sam is attending her twin sister's wedding. She has no interest in all of the activities and heads out for a long walk. During a rainstorm, she meets Elijah, who delivers her back to the host of the wedding.
Sam comes from a scandalous family, but is accepted by society. She is strong, quick witted and finds herself attracted to Eli, who is also attending the wedding and attending to business while there.
Both Sam and Eli have experienced heartache with parents. They find friendship and comfort, but Eli also makes Sam's heart sing.
I love that Ms. McKnight has delivered a book with a strong heroine and a shy and reserved hero. We have met many of the characters in her other books, yet this can easily be read as a stand alone. I do enjoy how they all connect together.
Ms. McKnight is one of my favorite authors, This book, like others, is so enjoyable to read. She weaves wonderful tales that leave me wanting more!
I received an ARC of this book. The choice to read and review it was all mine.
