Review for Scandalous
Author: Jenna Petersen
Date of Review: 01/19/06

Reviewer Comments:

Ms. Petersen’s debut effort is a fair beginning to her writing career. She has created a fine pair of lead characters and the storyline was good…but could have been a tad better if the various elements introduced had been expanded on.

Katherine is in a very bad situation. Her fiancé Colden Mallory has just found out on the eve of their bethrothal announcement that his dead wife is actually very much alive and on her way to him. Needing what Katherine can bring to the union he devises a way to keep the money in the family while still keeping face. He uses his brother’s desire for Lansing Square as initiative to fill his shoes. Dominic agrees but his decision does not sit well with him. One reason is due to the fact that he actually finds himself attracted to his new wife and two he does not care for the lies that he has encouraged through his actions. Will these two really get to the bottom of the secrets and bury the scandal or will love make everything all right?

For a debut effort this was a nice read. This would have been a tad bit more fulfilling if there were clues to the time period, if the secondary storyline had been expanded on, and if the ending was not so abrupt. Kat and Dominic were fine characters and truly one of the saving graces about this read.

Reviewer Comments:

Katherine Fleming was devastated when the man she was about to marry informs her his wife is alive! The Scandal! In a private meeting (unbeknownst to Katherine) Cole divulges to his bastard brother, Dominic, that he has squandered the family fortune and Katherine's inheritance as well. He strikes a bargain with Dominic; Cole will deed him Lansing Square, a property Dominic has been obsessed with, if Dominic will marry Katherine and turn over her inheritance to him. Katherine has no choice but to go along with the arrangement, believing he will leave her immediately anyway.

Dominic and Katherine are both carrying some heavy emotional baggage, though neither will reveal anything about their respective pasts. For a time they exist with a physical relationship only, but when the secrets start to come out, all hell will break loose and test the tentative bonds formed between the couple.

Sexual chemistry abounds between Dominic and Katherine, with many steamy love scenes and intense emotional drama. A well drawn cast of characters runs the gamut from extremely likable to truly vile and devious. The friction between Dominic, Cole, their mother, and Sarah was palpable; with Cole and Sarah portrayed so well as to make my skin crawl. By contrast, Dominic's sister, Julia, and his friend, Adrian were both very personable and magnetic characters. The sense of time and place was richly drawn and transports the reader right into Regency-era England.

A fine story of two wounded souls finding trust and love through adversity make SCANDALOUS a highly recommended book.
