Lord Philippe Lavay once took to the high seas armed with charm as lethal as his sword, and a stone-cold conviction: he'll restore his family's fortune and honor, no matter the cost. Victory is at last within reach—when a brutal attack snatches it from his grasp and lands him in Pennyroyal Green.

An afternoon of bliss brings a cascade of consequences for Elise Fountain. She is shunned by her family and ousted from a job she loves, and her survival means a plummet down the social ladder to a position no woman has yet been able to keep: housekeeper to a frighteningly formidable prince.

The bold and gentle Elise sees past his battered body into Philippe's barricaded heart . . . and her innate sensuality ignites his blood. Now a man who thought he could never love and a woman who thought she would never again trust must fight an incendiary passion that could be the ruin of them both.

USA Todaybestselling author Julie Anne Long originally set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. Since hanging up her guitar for the computer keyboard, Julie has penned books that frequently top reader a...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emotions of love I enjoyed the progress of the two main characters falling in love. The passion was palpable and un rushed which I enjoyed. A great love story with a realistic plot, and characters you felt you knew. A fantastic read, one that I will gladly read again and again. A top read for me, highly recommended to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unputdownable & Utterly Unforgettable! 4.5-5 Stars | Hot Steam Intelligent, intimate and intensely passionate, upstairs and downstairs collide and combust in this superbly written and divinely sensual, second-chance romance. Undoubtedly one of virtuoso author Julie Anne Long’s finest novels to date, Elise and Philippe’s heavenly tale delivers this spring’s most stirring, satisfying and swoon-worthy escape. Proud, pragmatic, fierce and fiery, Elise Fountain is a shinning heroine whose inspiring wit, compassion and understated beauty captured my heart. She’s an endearing character whose sharp and spirited personality, like her raven curls, are barely restrained. I delighted in reading her lovely unraveling from attempted prim and proper housekeeper to wonderfully wanton and throughly worshipped woman. And luscious Lord Philippe Lavay? Ooh la la! Il est magnifique! From the moment we meet him, battered and brooding—with shards of porcelain beneath his hessians—this prickly prince’s lethal appeal is nothing sort of ruinous. Imposing, charming and deliciously disarming, Philippe is a singular hero whose sizzling and irresistible self swiftly decimates Elise’s resolve. Sigh…he’s so perfect—thoughtful, intuitive and an achingly tender lover who is as devoted and driven by desire as Elise is. Philippe’s moving and masterful seduction of Elise is raw, powerful and absolutely riveting to read—and then compulsively re-read :)! Unputdownable and utterly unforgettable, IT STARTED WITH A SCANDAL is a glorious addition to one of historical romances most exceptional and cherished series. I savored every delectable word of Elise and Philippe’s breathtaking love story and now am counting down the days until the THE LEGEND OF LYON REDMOND, Olivia and Lyon’s highly anticipated story, releases this September! I can’t wait! Bottom Line: Read this book! Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
