    SCANDAL IN THE NIGHT by Elizabeth Essex is an exciting Regency H

    SCANDAL IN THE NIGHT by Elizabeth Essex is an exciting Regency Historical Romance set in 1830 England. #3 in "A Reckless Brides" novel, but can be read as a stand alone. Follow the Honorable Thomas Jellicoe and Catriona Rowan,who has more than one secret to tell, as they navigate passion, secrets, a spy or two, danger, and love. Cat, nearly destroyed a mission devilishly,handsome, British spy Thomas,was on in India. One night of passion with Cat and Thomas was forever changed. Now years later, the greatest danger to both of them could very well be their hearts as well as their lives. Their enemies have followed them back to England. Cat is disguised as governess who employer just happens to be none other than Thomas Jellicoe. The game is on.....

    Passion ignites again, after only one steamy kiss. As well as gunfire. It seems their enemies have found them and is out to collect a debt that they fell is long over due. A deliciously sexy story with suspense, mystery, with a blend of historical details as well as romance. A blend of intrigue and sexual desire. A not to miss story. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. With its charming, engaging characters and its blend of passion and intrigue,it all comes together smoothly and is an exciting read from the first page to the last page. A must read! Well done! I can hardly wait to see what Ms. Essex has in store for her readers next! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    RATING: 4.5

    Reviewed by Juli Williamson for Readers' Favorite

    "Scandal in the Night" by Elizabeth Essex is a piece that gives the reader a glimpse into the life of a Scottish lass Catriona and the second son of a British noble, Thomas Jellicoe, and the life that might have been enjoyed if one was a spy in India when the sun never set on the British Empire and the other had secrets of her own. It is a romance that skillfully skips from the characters’ past and weaves the excitement into their present. It is a tale that encourages the characters to remain true to themselves while exhibiting understanding, acceptance and acknowledgment of those differences to each other as each is pretending to be someone else.

    An Sikh horse trader and a prim governess are thrown together, strike sparks off each other. The lives that they each create lead to chaos in the inner circle of the English settlement and ruling class. A great romance that has Cat and Thomas getting to know each other in adverse conditions yet falling for each other in spite of the problems that it might cause. Poetically written with lyrical prose that has a great flow, "Scandal in the Night" is a joy to read, full of romance and a strong sexual tension that builds over time and remains through adversity to build to a future in a distant land that is as unexpected as it is welcome.
