Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The last thing overworked Kate Daltry wants to do is go to a ball—or meet a prince, for that matter—especially while pretending to be someone else. But when her selfish stepmother commands her to take her indisposed (and pregnant) half-sister's place so said half-sister and her fiancé can gain the prince's approval to wed, Kate heads for the castle and is swept into the most intriguing and unexpectedly passionate, if not always proper, adventure of her life. A responsible, beleaguered, impoverished prince who'd much rather be digging up Carthage, a smart, outspoken, equally responsible heroine who just wants a home and family of her own, an outrageously perfect godmother, a surfeit of animals, and a romance that is apparently doomed from the start add up to one of James's most original stories to date. VERDICT Nonstop action, quick-witted, intelligent banter, clever plotting, remarkable, well-defined characters, and breathtaking sensuality make James's exquisitely written, hilarious take on Cinderella another magical sparkler. One can only hope that there will be a similarly reinvented Snow White or Sleeping Beauty in the offing. James (A Duke of Her Own) lives in the New York City area.

Hopefully more Carsington's will be found in Ms. Chase's imagination so that she can write their stories. Loved this romance and these characters. They were kids in Lord Perfect and will probably remain forever young in heart.. Although this is a stand alone book, the series will bring you joy. Very well written. Good reading!

I loved this book. Loved the characters - wish I knew them. Loretta Chase has such wit and passed that along to her characters. You feel right along with them. Very, very good!

Fantastic book! I would give 4 1/2 stars! Loretta Chase is such a good historical romance author. She is definitely one of my favorites. Her books have humor, adventure and terrific characters. This book is no exception! While reading Last Night's Scandal, I felt like I was catching up with old friends. The main two characters, Lisle and Olivia, were children in 'Lord Perfect' who had set out on an adventure together. From the moment the see each other again, sparks fly between these two old friends. Olivia is outrageous and emotional. Lisle is analytical and conscientious. Together they are terrific. There is one thing I missed in the book. I wanted more verbalization of their feelings between the characters. They had a long history and obviously, cared for each other for years. It was a missed opportunity for the author. Still, I highly recommend the book.
