A Lady Seeking Scandal

Lady Isabel Cameron has little use for marriage and propriety. Her dream is to study art in Paris. But her father has engaged her to a waddling, bankrupt, domineering lord twice her age. When her childhood flame Marcus Hawksley reappears—handsome, single, and socially snubbed—Isabel devises the perfect escape. She will solicit Marcus's assistance to destroy her reputation. A Man With Nothing To Lose

Marcus has already felt the wrath of the ton, with his business as a stockbroker deemed unacceptable. But he is no despoiler of innocent ladies—until by chance, Isabel's improper advance leaves her the only witness against a lie that could truly ruin him. Faced with her father's demands for marriage, Isabel and Marcus agree to a wedding of convenience—and six months' tenure living as supposed husband and wife. But as the heat between them grows, what seemed a pretense becomes deliciously real...

    a perfect Regency romance

    In 1814 London Lady Isabel Cameron wants to cross the Channel to study art in Paris. To achieve her goal once the Napoleonic wars end, she knows she must never marry. Her father believes a lady needs a husband so he plans to arrange a marriage for his daughter before she becomes comfortable on the shelf. Thus the earl plans to give her to a man over three decades older than her and even older than him.

    Desperate Isabel needs to find the right man quick. She meets scandalous Lord Marcus Hawksley, who is her age and a younger son of an earl; however, he is unacceptable by the Ton because he earns a living as a stockbroker. Isabel chooses Marcus as ideal for her; not to marry but to destroy her reputation so no one will wed her. Without a companion, she goes to see him to ask for his assistance, but when he is accused of stealing she is his alibi, but also his scandal. They agree to a short term marriage of convenience, but an inconvenient truth surfaces when they fall in love.

    A Perfect Scandal is a perfect Regency romance due to the lead characters, who bring refreshing new ideas to the entertaining story line. Whereas she wants to study art while embracing spinsterhood; he breaks a social taboo by working as a stockbroker. Readers will enjoy the relationship between these ducal offspring; as Tina Gabrielle proves that the whole formed by love is greater than the sum of the individual parts.

    A delightful and sexy book

    Tina Gabrielle pens another delightful historical romance in A Perfect Scandal.

    Lady Isabel Cameron has always dreamed of pursuing her painting in Paris. Her father is bound and determined to see her married, no matter who the man should be. His latest pick give Isabel the willies, so she decides to take matters into her own hands. Isabel think by creating a scandal she will be free to life her live. But the man she uses to help is her old childhood crush, Marcus Hawksley.

    Marcus Hawksley is the younger son of an Earl, he is snubbed by the ton since he works in trade as a stockbroker. He doesn't know what to do with an innocent like Lady Isabel. When her father demands marriage Marcus willing goes along. But Isabel has a deal of her own, she wants a six month marriage of convenience then they both can go on and pursue their own interests.

    Their marriage starts out as a friendship but their attraction plays havoc with their vow of convenience. Add to this is an menace that wants to harm Isabel and Marcus. Can they win the race to find the danger? Will their relationship get the chance it deserves?

    A Perfect Scandal is an emotional and sizzling story. You find yourself falling into Marcus and Isabel's world, wanting them to find the happiness they both so richly deserve. It was a special treat to revisit Blake and Victoria from Lady of Scandal.. I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to read more from this author.

    Marcus Hawksley, the long estranged second son of the Earl of Ar

    Marcus Hawksley, the long estranged second son of the Earl of Ardmore, a self-made success as a stockbroker on the London Exchange with high disregard for the beau monde, while grudgingly attending a ball finds himself brazenly approached and propositioned by Lady Isabel Cameron, oldest daughter of of Earl of Malvern. Isabel in her own right has a strong character and her own opinion of the rules of the ton. She is determined that they will not apply to her as she wants to fulfill her dream of moving to Paris and further her education in painting. Once harboring a child-hood crush on Marcus, his now scandalous standing may just turn out to be the answer to her prayers to dissuade the marriage set to be arranged by her father to old Lord Walling. Isabel's plan proves to be too good as she find herself once again facing marriage. Falsely accused of a theft not committed, Marcus Hawksley, a confirmed bachelor also finds himself tangled within Isabel's web. Threats will surface and Marcus will do anything to keep Isabel safe. Tina Gabrielle delivers a terrific story with strong characters set to prove the rules of the ton will not apply to them.

    Dissapointed

    The begining was promising, but lack real romance. I lost most interest after their wedding. This was more of a mystery. If you like historcal romances try Elizabeth Rolls, ' His lady mistress' way better and same price point. In the end, this was not that good and i have read plenty of smile,laugh and tear jerkers at $5. Dont recomend!

    a budding author with potential...

    While I found the author's knowledge of art history and stock brokerage firms to be interesting, her writing style was not. Her villains were better developed than her main characters and her sense of the macabre overrode the romance of the her main characters.
