A delightful story
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Scandal isn't just for rogues, as the daring women in USA TODAY bestselling author Nicola Cornick's scintillating new series prove.... As maid to some of the most wanton ladies of the ton, Margery Mallon lives within the boundaries of any sensible servant. Entanglements with gentlemen are taboo. Wild adventures are for the Gothic novels she secretly reads. Then an intriguing stranger named Mr. Ward offers her a taste of passion, and suddenly the wicked possibilities are too tempting to resist....
Henry Atticus Richard Ward is no ordinary gentleman. He's Lord Wardeaux and he is determined to unite Margery with her newfound inheritance by any means-including seduction and deception. But when the ton condemns the scandalous servant-turned-countess and an unknown danger prepares to strike, will Margery accept Henry's protection in exchange for her trust?
Many thanks to Netgalley for this ARC and the chance to review.
This was an intriguing read. I found that Henry was so irresistible. The character building was spot on for these two and the conflict reached until the very end.
I liked how the story was plotted and paced out but only had a small problem with how things played out. It wasn’t so much to do with the writing but I won’t ruin the ending for anyone else and just let you get there yourself. You won’t regret it.
I found that I couldn’t put the book down and when it was done, I sulked around the house until my husband told me to snap out of it. It’s a delightful story that will leave your heart filled with happiness.
I give this book 4 and one half stars out of five for a great job.

Margery Mallon is a lady's maid with the only dream of opening a confections store where she could sell her pastries. What she doesn't know is that fate has her path written and she will be found even when she didn't know she was lost.
When Lord Wardeaux finds himself short of time he has to make sure Margery is really the lost Lady Marguarite Saint-Pierre and not a woman that if approached will set to deceived an old lonely man trying to find the only thing left of his daughter. But he's in for a big surprise when little fiery Margery is turned to be more that he could handle.
I found this story very interesting and entertaining. Some times books are predictable but this one kept you guessing what was happening and who was the bad guy. And of course it has romance and explosive lust between the main duo.

Review: "Forbidden" by Nicola Cornick was a good

"Forbidden" by Nicola Cornick was a good historical romance that I enjoyed. Forbidden" was the last book in the Scandalous Women of the Ton. This novel was definitely on that would draw you into the world of England complete with heirs, heiresses, lords, ladies and let's not leave out the heroes, heroines with all of its romantic fever. This particular novel was of Margery and Henry and it sort of reads like a fairy tale...with the heroine being very stubborn while the hero is so desirable. However, I did find this novel interesting and entertaining read that would keep you turning the pages till the end. I also found this novel somewhat predictable but it did leave you wanting to know just who the bad person was going to be. And this is where I say you must pick up "Forbidden" to say how this romance will turn out.
If you are in for a good historical romance you have come to the right place and I would recommend "Forbidden" to you as a good read.

Several characters from earlier books in this series show up in Forbidden: Lord and Lady Grant; Lord Farne, who married Merryn; the widowed Althea. From lady’s maid to all of the aforementioned to riches galore lost heiress Margery Mallon aka Lady Marguerite is attracted to Henry Ward aka Lord Wardeaux (cousin to Farne). She loves to bake and is comfortable with the "lower" classes. However, the book is just one seduction after another. I've already given it away.
