HER SECRET SCANDAL
 
As far as London’s high society knows, Lady Isabel Morrow is above reproach. But the truth is rarely so simple. Though the young widow’s passionate fling with dashing Bow Street Runner Callum Jenks ended amicably months ago, she now needs his expertise. It seems Isabel’s late husband, a respected art dealer, was peddling forgeries. If those misdeeds are revealed, the marriage prospects of his younger cousin— now Isabel’s ward—will be ruined.
 
For the second time, Isabel has upended Callum’s well-ordered world. He’s resolved to help her secretly replace the forgeries with the real masterpieces, as a . . . friend. A proper sort of friend doesn’t burn with desire, of course, or steal kisses on twilight errands. Or draw a willing lady into one passionate encounter after another. Isabel’s scheme is testing Callum’s heart as well as his loyalties. But with pleasure so intoxicating, the real crime would be to resist . . .
 
Richly rewarding.”

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heat And Intrigue Galore Lady Isabel Morrow, widowed 18 months previously, needs help. In Lady Rogue, she has discovered that her husband had been selling forged paintings to his list of exclusive clients. She has to do something to correct this immediately. Isabel has no care for herself, but her ward may be ruined by the revelations. Lucy Wallace, originally Isabel’s husband’s ward but now Isabel’s is someone Isabel cares for very deeply. It is bad enough Andrew Morrow committed suicide all those months ago, but now she finds out he’s a criminal? Should the forgeries become public knowledge, Lucy could be ruined. No one will want to marry a young girl who is associated with a criminal. The scandal of forgeries on top of the suicide would ruin her chances to make a successful marriage. Callum Jenks is the officer who investigated Andrew Morrow’s death. Summoned by Lady Isabel, he arrives to find that there is no case to investigate, she wants him for something quite different. It turns out Isabel wants Callum to help her steal the forgery sold to a Duke, and replace it with the original. Isabel feels that this is the moral thing to do. The Duke is using the forgery to pay off a debt, the forgery may be discovered. While replacing a forgery with the original isn’t your typical theft, neither is it quite legal. Callum declines at first but Isabel must do something to change his mind. Heat And Intrigue Galore In her shock after the suicide of her husband 18 months ago, Isabel had a brief one-night affair with Callum. When they meet again the spark is very much still there. In some ways, this was an impossible relationship. The attraction was undeniable but the difference in their stations was difficult, to say the least. I enjoyed the way the author managed the attraction and the difficulties of such a relationship, juggling both with success. I will definitely be happy to read more books by Theresa Romain. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
