[ARC Review] - Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal by Grace Burrowes
Author: Grace Burrowes
Series: The Duke's Daughters
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: May 1, 2012
I received this book from Sourcebooks, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Maggie Windham, oldest of the Windham sisters and a by-blow from His Grace’s pre-marital wild oats, finds herself in desperate needs of an investigator to help her retrieve a missing reticule. Benjamin Hazlit knows the Windham family secrets, and can be trusted to keep them to himself, so Maggie turns to Benjamin, though it means ignoring his too-broad shoulders, his too-knowing smile… and his too-skilled kisses.
As Benjamin starts the search for Maggie’s missing purse, he realizes two things: First, whatever was in that purse, its loss has Maggie not just rattled, but terrified. Second, Benjamin will go to any lengths to see Maggie’s peace of mind restored, even if it means he must keep himself in very close proximity to the shy, secretive lady who says she wants nothing to do with him.
Thoughts: Lady Maggie has secrets and normally has no trouble keeping them - that is until her reticule goes missing. With there being a lot at stake, she enlists the help of the very tempting Bejamin Hazlit to find her missing item.
I love Lady Maggie's story. Benjamin Hazlit and Maggie Windham make a surprising pair, but all together a wonderful couple. Their relationship has a rocky start, with a lot of snipping at each other, but their coming together was sensuous and lovely. Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal is a delightful read. Full of mystery and romance. Ms. Burrowes spins enchanting stories, that get better with each book. I love the suspense that spans the story just as much as I do the love story. The Windham's series is both intriguing and easily addicting.
Score: 4 Stars
