Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Agreeing to raise her sister's illegitimate son as her own so Linnie won't be ruined, Evelyn Cross pretends to be a widow, moves in with her great-aunt, and settles into life in rural Yorkshire. Four years later, her peace is shattered when Spencer Lockhart, Viscount Winters and cousin of the soldier who compromised her sister, arrives to fulfill his cousin's deathbed wish and care for Linnie and the boy. But Spencer assumes Evie is Linnie, creating a situation that becomes even more complicated when he proposes. VERDICT A strong, determined heroine and an honorable hero find unexpected happiness as their marriage of convenience becomes the real thing in this charming, sweetly sensual romance that fans will find hard to put down.

    In Scandal They Wed!

    Image me, all giddy with GLEE when I was handed an Avon ARC card in January for In Scandal They Wed by Sophie Jordan. I was going to buy it anyway, but to read it early! I squealed! I swear, I think this is the best book by her yet!

    Sophie made Evelyn's cause real to me. She took on her sister's disgrace as her own, and sacrificed her life for this child that would have been otherwise cast aside. I love this twist to the marriage of convenience/ruined woman story, cause while you might think that she was forced into the situation, you know that Evelyn did it all by choice, her choice of what was right, and how she would fight to ensure the safety and happiness for the child.

    Meanwhile, Spencer, who thinks that marrying Evelyn will solve multiple problems for him. (Just like a man.) He would be able to take care of his cousin's child, keep the "mother" from being a pain to him, and have a wife to bare him an heir. Instead, he ends up with the perfect woman for him.

    Wonderful Historical Romance!!

    When Evelyn Cross saves her sister's illegitimate baby from being dumped in an orphanage, she gives up her own future to raise the innocent child. But without the support of her parents, she struggles to survive. The arrival of a handsome stranger, duty bound to help his cousin's offspring, both excites and terrifies her. If he finds out she's not the child's mother, will he take the boy from her?

    Spencer Lockhart promised his dying cousin he'd look after the woman and child he abandoned to go off to war. Instead of the gentle, sweet maiden his cousin spoke of, Spencer finds a feisty woman determined to thwart his attempts to help her in spite of her dire circumstances. His father's third son, he'd never expected to become the Viscount and now that he has, he needs a wife. Marrying Evelyn will solve both his problem and hers, and get her into his bed in the bargain.

    Both Evelyn and Spencer have baggage and secrets which result in lies of omission that threaten to destroy their budding love. While Spencer is bent on seduction, Evelyn must resist or reveal the truth that will prove she's not her son's real mother.

    The stakes for Evelyn in this story are high-custody of her son-and she's convinced she'll lose him if Spencer learns of her deceit. Spencer is torn between guilt for wanting his cousin's woman and jealousy of what he believes is Evelyn's enduring love for the dead man.

    Once again Sophie Jordan has created a hero and heroine with real world problems, painful pasts and deep feelings that elevate her books far beyond a stock marriage-of-convenience story. Evelyn's willingness to give her sister's unwanted baby a future at the cost of her own is both touching and heart-breaking. And Spencer's sacrifice to set a wrong right, makes him a hero worthy of the title. A cast of richly drawn characters and their fully realized world captured me on page one and kept me enthralled to the Happily-Ever-After. In fact, I started the book on a Saturday evening and didn't put it down until I reached the end. IN SCANDAL THEY WED is yet another wonderful historical romance from an author who never fails to deliver!

    Lovely book!

    I greatly enjoyed all of the characters in the book. The mistaken identity made for a bit of drama when it finally came to light, but they got over it in due time and it didn't drag on as it sometimes does in books. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    In Scandal They Wed

    My Synopsis:

    In Scandal They Wed (Penwich School for Virtuous Girls series - Book 2) by Sophie Jordan

    Viscount Spencer Lockhart is bound by duty to his cousin, who's dying wish is that he protect a woman who bore his son in scandal. Spencer returns home from the war to the demands of a title and the search for a wife. When he meets Evelyn Cross, his cousins former love he could kill two birds with one stone. Protect his cousins son and find a wife to satisfy his step-mother. But, he may have met his match with the determined Evie Cross.

    Evelyn Cross sacrificed everything she knew and loved to protect her family from scandal, even the possibility of one day finding love. She struggles to provide and to live a life that is free from prying eyes all in the hope that the scandal will never be revealed, but when Spencer Lockhart enters her life the balance tips. Can Evie marry a man she has only just met? Can Spencer sacrifice love in order to fulfill his duty? Will passion ignite between them threatening to plunge them into scandal once more?

    My thoughts:

    I was unaware when I started this book that it was a series. This is the second book in Sophie Jordan's series about the girls from Penwich School for Virtuous Girls. I liked the book a lot. The idea of duty and honor was a theme that was pursued throughout the book. Spencer has a duty not only to his cousin, who wronged a young woman in his past and also to his family as he takes on his title and prepares to find a wife.

    Spencer is a character that has good intentions. He intends to provide for the son of his cousin, but somehow along the way he has fallen in love with the "idea" of Lennie, the woman his cousin drove into scandal. When meets Evelyn Cross he decides to offer her security and a life for her son and for herself. Two birds, one stone. He fulfills his duty while also getting a wife in the process. Underlying all this is his desire for the woman he has learned about through stories from his cousin. He finds that Evie is very different from what he thought Lennie would be and his desire for her is strong.

    Evie Cross has been through a lot in her life, not only has she sacrificed for her family but she endured a sad childhood in the Penwich School for Virtuous Girls. But, she met some friends along the way that helped her through the experience and who have stuck by her. The thread of friendship that weaves through the story is done very well. It also promotes the idea that no matter your circumstances you can find get through it if you stick together.
