Book Review: Marriage Most Scandalous



Marriage Most Scandalous by Johanna Lindsey

I was looking for something else to listen to besides the same mysteries and romances, so I grabbed this novel, set in Regency England - though a much less staid one than Austen's England (meaning, there's dueling and sex involved, natch!).

Sebastian has been banished from his family after a duel went horribly awry, and finds himself mystified when a girl from his childhood - Lady Margaret - arrives with news that his father is in danger and that she is willing to pay his passage back to England to help her.

Naturally, she doesn't have the money, they have a false marriage, things get tangled up, and they end up falling in love just the same and having lots of hot sex...

This was a pretty good listen, though the reader's male voices left a little something to be desired for me. It's not Pride and Prejudice, but...

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Anne Flosnik.
