Liberty for Paul by Rose Gordon Scandalous Sisters Book 2. We met Paul Grimes and Liberty Banks in Intentions of the Earl. Liberty took an instant dislike to Paul and treated him cruelly. Paul is a Vicar and because of some issues within his church he comes to be mentored by John Grimes. Now it's about seven months later and Liberty is beginning to hate Paul and has planned a way to get him out of her life completely. After Liberty has fallen through the ice and into the Thames she is brought home, Paul is the only one there to take care of her, he was suppose to meet John Banks but at the time he was in the house alone. He has to get her wet clothes off and gets her into a hot bath while waiting for the Doctor to arrive. When Liberty is told about this she hates him more than ever. Liberty comes up with a way to make it look as Paul as seduced her. Even though things don't work quite like she wants, her father does break off mentoring Paul. No one but family and their odd butler has seen her last act of revenge. The book is full of ups and downs with Paul and Liberty. If they would only talk to each other! It is a case of two steps forward and three back in their relationship. I like that Rose has brought the characters back from the first book as well. We get to know Andrew's mother, Elizabeth, in this book. Liberty's sisters and parents are back as well. Benjamin Collins, the Duke of Gateway makes his appearances as well. **Sexual situations within marriage

Loved this book also. This book does have fewer pages than the first. I believe this one was around 230 pages. I also reviewed the first book and I enjoyed them both. This book I think the couple really have to work a little more to understand each other and love each other as they start out in the first book and this book not liking each other at all. It is funny how Liberty address's men's body parts by so many names. The end of the book the love scene is very romantic and many pages long. The third book looks as though it will be as good. She makes all her characters so interesting that you want to continue to read the next book to see how they develop. There is also a groom series that also carries over stories of some of the men that you meet in the sister series. I plan to read all of them.

This book was so much fun to read! The thing that stands out the most is the author's sense of humor. Even in the worst of circumstances for the characters, the author was able to word things in such a way that had me laughing. Like when Liberty's being forced to marry Paul, and before the wedding, her sister and mother instruct her on her wedding night but are too afraid to name the male privates but just tell Liberty that Paul will 'touch her with it'. In light of the fact that Liberty is horrified enough to be marrying Paul, her reaction to her mother and sister's well meaning spiel was just too funny. The humor was what kept me up most of the night reading the book, but what compelled me to buy this book was the plot. Paul and Liberty meet, and Liberty thinks Paul is a huge bore so she doesn't like him. From there, they become enemies, and Liberty is determined to get her revenge on Paul so she sneaks into his room while he's bathing and takes all of his clothes. (The fact that she can't keep her eyes off his private area while she's trying to get him to promise to cut all ties with her father was funny too.) Her parents and the butler catch her, and the butler ends up creating a scandal about the whole thing, saying she was trying to seduce Paul. The next thing Paul and Liberty know, they're being forced to marry. I love the arch enemies forced into married plot. I also love the virgin hero characteristic. I should add here that the fact that he is a virgin becomes very important in the book later on, but I won't spoil it. So Liberty who values propriety above all else marries Paul who wants to see the real Liberty. The evolving of their relationship from hate to love was done gently and tenderly. For example, he gave her a journal to start recording whenever she smiled and told her that she becomes beautiful whenever she smiles. Liberty had a hard time believing it due to her plain appearance, but that was one of the most touching scenes I've read in a long time. The book was actually full of such tender moments, and I couldn't help but love both of these characters. Mix humor with tenderness and you end up with a definite keeper for your bookshelf. Definitely worth 5+ stars! I highly recommend this book.

The romance of Liberty and Paul entertains because the two hate each other but were forced to marry. Witty and humorous. A good follow-up from the first.

Its great to find a series that has lovable, (sometimes crazy) leading ladies, loving men AND humor! My husband asked what I was laughing about. Liberty wasnt my favorite char in the first book, but the outragous things she did in this book were funny. A good book- be sure to read all 3 in this series.

The Scandalous Sisters Series is a real delight and I have loved every story about all three sisters - I was thrilled to discover Rose Gordon expanded the stories with the Groom Series as well.

I read a lot of books more than 30 a month, so when i say Liberty was the biggest *itch of a heroin I have ever read I do have some cred... Why Paul stayed with her after she was so mean to him is crazy. There is such a thing as women being the abusing spouse and Liberty was such. I kept reading right up to the end to see if she would be redeemable and just was not!

not her best effort or her worst. Liked Paul but not Liberty so much. What a spiteful nasty woman. She grew up some but her childishness was not fully addressed.

I loved the first book in this series, but I wasn't expecting the follow up story to be as interesting; thankfully it was! The two main characters in this book had so many cringe-worthy moments with each other in the last book, that it seemed almost certain that they would never fall in love. I really enjoyed reading how the author got them to come around and I would definitely recommend this story.

I thought this book was going to be kind of boring but it surprised me. I didn't care at all for Liberty in the first book or in most of this one. She seemed like such a mean person. The way she treated Paul was awful. But as her background came out I began to understand her. I still found myself wanting to beat her over the head at times but she turned out alright in the end.

Some second books in a series are let downs but not this one. I enjoyed this one as much as the first one (Intentions of the Earl). Liberty's true colors come out and she is hilarious. Paul can keep up with her which adds to the humor. At times you will feel sorry for them. Will they ever come together. It is a great story. I have started the last book in the series (To Win His Wayward Wife). Finally, we get to see why Gateway wanted the Banks to leave England.

Read the first couple books in the series and I have to say I thought they were better, but this book was okay, it wasnt bad, or awful, it wasnt antastic, good read.

I enjoyed this as I did the first book in the series. I will read more by this (new to me) author.

I liked the book until almost the end of the book. It got to unrealistic for me. I just couldn't wrap my head around how Liberty was so naive. I think the author got too far off track.

This book could have been good. But it was too slow and boring. At page 188 of 216 I almost gave up. It wax not till 193 that the married lead characters even kissed. There was some humor and I liked the series but one is a miss.
