A Woman With A Secret

Victoria Ashton has intelligence and ambition—qualities of little value to most marriage-minded gentlemen of the ton. Her own father has no idea of Victoria's hidden life as an anonymous trader in London's stock market. But her hopes of independence are shattered when her father's enemy, Blake Mallorey, assumes Charles Ashton's debts and presents Victoria with a stark choice: live with him as his mistress for one year, or condemn her family to bankruptcy.

A Gentleman With Resolve

For years Blake has dreamed of justice, and his scheme becomes all the sweeter when he sees the beauty that Victoria has become. Scoundrel he may be, but Blake will not force anyone into his bed. He intends to entice Victoria, one wicked kiss at a time. But with a woman as spirited and sensual as Victoria, seduction works both ways—and a plan rooted in revenge can blossom into a scandalous passion…

I love the characters (Blake and Victoria). Absolutely amazing, hot, and sexy. Ups and downs, thrills all occur right in the beginning, making it memorable from start to end. A very easy read- and my favorite: HAPPY ENDING! But how we get there, the hardships, and the desires is the most important...

Lady Of Scandal by Tina Gabrielle is a delightfully wicked debut novel. Victoria Ashton is different from the other woman of the Ton. She is crafty and smart. Victoria is very happy with her life but her father's debts are out of control and must me paid. Seems she is the solution to her fathers problems. Blake Mallorey Earl of Ravenspear has made a deal with Victoria's father that has but her smack in the middle. Blake Mallorey has overcome poverty and childhood tragedies to become a respected member of society. Behind the handsome facade is a gentlemen bent on revenge. Charles Aston drove Blake's father to suicide and his family to ruin. Blake sees a golden opportunity to make Charles pay and get Victoria as his lover. He proposes Victoria be his mistress for a year and he will extend time to her father to get his affairs in order. Blake promises not to force Victoria into anything but spending time with her he is seduced by her wit and charm. Victoria is all set to ignore Blake but she is finding many hidden layers to this fascinating man. As they draw closer together, Charles is pressuring Victoria to betray Blake. Will their new found trust survive? Lady Of Scandal is a wonderful first book by Tina Gabrielle. Its crisp writing and well developed characters will keep you enthralled. I will be looking for more books from this new author.

What a great read! Though it usually takes me a week to read even books that catch my attention, this one I couldn't put down and read in one afternoon. Blake is sexy and sensuous, Victoria smart and strong. Together their steam is tangible - you'll never look at a maid's closet the same way again! My husband and kids have no clean clothes, but I'm happy and highly recommend this one. Lookout, you'll be hooked right from the start!

One of the stupidest heroines of all times! Victoria supposedly had the wit and smarts to scheme into the forbidden, male dominated Stock Exchange (and made monies), but was duped REPEATEDLY by her own father and fiance at the expense of one man she claimed to love!?! She ruined the entire storyline. So disgusted.

To be so cheap, I thought this book would be a risk.....it turned out to be a risk worth taking!!!!!!!!! This book had everything you could want in a romance.....the heroine was so conflicted and the hero was initially the villian but gradually stole your heart just as he did Victoria's. Tastefully done sex scenes with just enough heat to cause some intense wriggling in your seat!!!!! This definitely is a re-read!!! Don't hesitate to buy this book......you will not regret it!!!!!!(FRG)
