A Scandalous Charade

© 2011 Ava Stone


When fire meets ice

Handsome ladies’ man Lucas Beckford has agreed to help his friend, an impoverished baron, win the affections of an icy heiress. It should be a simple task, especially for a seducer of his reputation. However when Luke catches sight of the enchanting lady, he is captivated with her pretty brown eyes, quick wit, and sharp tongue; and his desire to see his friend marry the girl quickly evaporates. Now he just has to find a way to convince the penniless lord to turn his attentions elsewhere—leaving the Ice Princess to him.

Lady Juliet St. Claire has always believed that her fortune would protect her from ever having to relinquish her freedom in marriage. Though fortune hunters endlessly hound her, Juliet’s outwardly cold demeanor keeps most of them at bay, licking their wounds or patching up their pride. However when Luke charms his way into her life, he easily melts more than just her heart. Unfortunately, the rogue is of the love ‘em and leave ‘em variety, and leaves Juliet’s tender heart in pieces. But when her fortune lands her in danger from an unscrupulous foe, Luke returns to her side, offering his help and protection. Now Juliet has to decide if her heart is strong enough to trust the rogue a second time.

    Could be better

    Good Story, but there seemed to be a huge gap in the middle. Juliet shows up at her uncles' house all depressed, then a few pages later she is in a bedroom with Luke, pretending to be a governess. There was no transition to indicate a change in time, nor was there any indication of Luke's reaction when she shows up in Dorset. The story just didn't seem to flow well. The reader finds out later a little of what occurred during the missing time frame, but it seemed a little lacking. I feel that the plot could stand a little more development.

    Wonderful

    I love Luke and Juliet's love story. It has the rogue, murder, deceit, and love wrapped up in a wonderfully written package. I could not put it down!

    Not bad at all.

    This is the first book in the series that I have read and even though I didn't know what happened in the first book it was still a book read.

    Some misspelling

    Book was great for a free book. It went alittle too long but it was great. I guess each person has a story so we had to read about each person they all have an important part. Good book. Love such a great thing.

    Not bad, but it needs some editing

    This book was free, but it wasn’t nearly as terrible as I expected it to be. Like many free books, it would benefit from some careful editing–-it’s way too long, contains unnecessary and confusing side plots, and there are some typographical errors–but it was better than some professionally published stuff that I’ve read. I really enjoyed both of the main characters, and a lot of the secondary characters were also interesting and two-dimensional. The oddest thing about this book is that one of the secondary characters dies very suddenly, and it’s so abrupt that I almost missed it. After that death, the main character is spurred into flight and there is no discussion at all about her emotional state after such a sudden loss. It was bizarre, jarring, and unpleasant. A few hundred pages later, there was finally some reference to her grief, but it was a bit too little, too late. And I’m not kidding about it being a few hundred pages later… this thing was ridiculously long. Overall, though, I would recommend this book as a great free book read.
