Overview

“Sophie Jordan is one of a kind!”
—Samantha James

Best-laid plans beget sizzling passion in the second book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s delectable Forgotten Princesses series. A sweeping and breathtakingly dramatic historical romance, Lessons from a Scandalous Bride features a haunted hero, a Scottish viscount, who hopes to snare a wealthy wife in Victorian England—only to have an inappropriately independent heiress catch his eye and steal his heart. Sophie Jordan is well-known and well-loved for her dark, brooding heroes and sexy heroines—and her fans will not be disappointed by these Lessons…nor will readers of the bestselling love stories of Lisa Kleypas and Sabrina Jeffries. When it comes to Ms. Jordan and her extraordinary historical romance novels, Kirkus Reviews offers the best advice: “Just surrender to the sizzle.”

Meet the Author

Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.

Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Ashleigh Review Copy Provided by the Publisher For Cleo Hadley a life in the ton is something that she never dreamed was possible. When you come from a family with less than nothing and a step father that is repulsive to everyone, life is barely worth leading. when a stranger comes to her home and shatters everything she thought she knew about herself, it could just be the best thing that ever happened to her. But the fears of losing herself to a man are something that could just keep her from the man that has wanted her from the first moment their eyes meet. But Logan will only take heer if she can come to him willingly. With a few fumbles and fights along the way Cleo will have to discover herself on the path to winning her husband’s heart. Lord Logan McKinney just need a wife, preferably one with lots a zeros in her dowry. If only the women of the ton could spark just a bit of interest in him outside of the package they present. Just about ready to give up completely, Logan meets Cleo for the first time and suddenly no other woman matters. Just like the cheesy romance themes it was love at first sight, only this time it is the man falling hard and trying to convince the woman of his feelings. Just how much will Logan endure before even his love is dashed? And can he convince Cleo that not all men are like her step father? While the beginning of this story was quite dismal, I was glad to see it pick up a bit so that I could see how Logan and Cleo make out in the end. I was a bit leery about ready a second story of a series without having the first story under my belt first but I think it made this one even better. Sophie Jordan is an author that I have read quite a bit of in the past a loved the majority of her works. While I do with that Cleo and Logan were a bit more believable at times I think the emotion was there and it made up for everything else in spades. If you like historical romances and are wanting one with a strong heroine than this is a story, you will want to add to your TBR pile.

4* I enjoyed this second book of the Forgotten Princesses series. Cleo and Logan had great chemistry. This book is a great example of how ones fears can rule your life and keep you from really living. Logan's family were fun and I fell in love with Josie even though she had such a small part. I can't wait for Annalise's book she was very shy and sweet. I'm looking forward to see the type of man that she falls for.  Sophie Jordan writes wonderful historical romance and I highly recommend her books.

An entire book devoted to Cleo whining about never wanting to have sex. Logan gets her over the hump eventually but by then you'll probably not care. I know I didn't.
