Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.
One good proposition deserves another? Heiress Augusta Meredith can't help herself-she stirs up gossip wherever she goes. A stranger to Bath society, she pretends to be a charming young widow, until sardonic, darkly handsome Joss Everett arrives from London and uncovers her charade. Augusta persuades Joss to keep her secret in exchange for a secret of his own. Weaving their way through the treacherous pitfalls of a polite world only too eager to expose and condemn them, they begin to see that being true to themselves is not so bad? as long as they're true to each other.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from secrets of a scandalous heiress This was definitely a unique story. Romain brings new life to Bath & the London ton scene with her intricately crafted storyline. Romain has a subdued tone to her writing. It almost made me feel as if she were writing in pastels rather than vibrant colours. At times I felt as if the pace of the story lagged a bit, but never to the extent of losing interest in the story, simply as if it were meandering a little. The interactions between the characters were quite rigid at times, much of this having to do with the social norms of the time. The main characters flipped back and forth between said constraints and their desires until finally happening upon what works for them. I quite enjoyed Everett’s character. He’s quite different from your typical hero in this genre. I won’t say more to avoid spoilers, but he’s quite the individual. This novel had an enjoyable but unique storyline but there was something about the author’s writing style that kept me from being fully immersed in the story. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
