    Nice story but hard to believe this could happen.

    This was a nice story but not very believable.

    Devon is too perfect. And Leah is just stupid.

    Review

    I enjoyed this one so much more than the first. Thought starting with the baby’s delivery then flashing back to the start of Leah and Devon’s love then coming back to the delivery was really different. Really cool. I got to know the characters in a way I wasn’t expecting. Their backstory helped explain motivations and feelings…and kept the delivery from seeming too random.

    Though it must be noted that no one recovers from giving birth as quickly as Leah does. Seriously?! the day after a traumatic (and premature!) birth and we’ve got our heroine throwing the baby in a drawer (yep. a dresser drawer. padded with blankets. duh.) and riding a coach to London. Leah even feels the stirring of desire for Devon. You have to ignore a lot of logic to bridge the unrealistic-ness of this situation. But if you can get past it watching Devon and Leah rebuild their love is rewarding.

    What was great about this read was how much I enjoyed these characters as people. Getting to know Leah better in this novel makes such a difference…and sheds so much light on her, shall we say, sluttiness of the last novel. I actually liked her. And Devon is simply the sweetest. Even if it took them FOREVER to say the L-word. That confession was pretty obvious way before the characters admitted their feelings.

    Again, the second in this series keeps the ‘drama’ to a minimum…at least in the main character’s relationships. This semi-drama-free relationship was one of the things I most like about the first book, Married in Haste. No grand displays followed by white knights to be found here. Just major issues sorted out by realistic people.

    Finally, the epilogue to this book was better than the first in the series. It completed Leah and Devon’s story, giving a Happily Ever After that is the sweetest I’ve read in awhile. Well done Maxwell.

    Rating: 3.5/5 A swift, sweet novel worth the hour or two of escape it provides.

    Fabulous!! This whole series is marvelous. Each had is own story

    Fabulous!! This whole series is marvelous. Each had is own story but yet they were linked in a subtle way. Tess, Leah, and Anne each provide a their own meaning of womanhood as they shed their girlish innocent. The story line surrounding each woman and her man is genius and artfully done.

    Beautiful love story!!!

    I absolutely loved this book. Devon and Leah's story is one of such a strong love that it leaves a lasting impression upon the reader. I love how Cathy Maxwell definitley makes sure the reader knows how much Devon loves the baby! I loved the end and the connection to present day! Very thoughtful.

    An arranged marriage, some taming of the shrew and a little revolution make for a very goid romance

    entertaining Regency romance

    In 1815, Devon Marshall, Viscount Huxhold, races through the Yorkshire countryside to be at his grandfather¿s deathbed. Though he and his dying relative have squabbled, Devon knows he loves the man who raised him when his parents died. He wants to make sure his grandfather knows that also. However, his horse stumbles on the icy pastures injuring a foot. Devon finds a farm where he meets a pregnant Lady Leah ¿The Runaway Debutante¿ Carrollton in a pigsty. <P>Last year, Devon and Leah found themselves attracted to one another, but family feuds intervened before the duo could begin courting. When her family tried to foster her off on an unacceptable suitor, she fled, thus gaining her nickname. Now, Devon knows he cannot desert Leah and offers her the protection of marriage. As Leah and Devon fall in love, his secrets threaten to destroy their happiness. <P>A SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE is an entertaining Regency romance filled with wit and passion. Though it may seem that this tale is another marriage of convenience plot, the exciting story line takes unexpected but realistic turns, providing freshness and pleasure to the audience. The lead characters are a delightful duo struggling with their scandalous past while the support cast makes Regency England seem alive. Cathy Maxwell shows she is one of the better sub-genre authors with this wonderful tale and works like MARRIED IN HASTE, Leah¿s first appearance. <P>Harriet Klausner
