Andrew Battencourt, Earl of Shefford, is looking forward to spending some quiet time in the country after a gruelling year–long mission for the Home Office. But before Drew can begin his holiday, he is sent to secretly investigate a break–in, and meets the beautiful Princess Caroline.

In 1851, Gentlemen Rogues Secret Agent Andrew Chase hates his current assignment as bodyguard to Princess Carolina of Boratania. He feels he can survive watching the spoiled pampered highness whom he never has met since it is only one month of tedium................... At a party in her honor, Drew observes Carolina just take over until she slips out to a nearby maze; he follows her and accosts her informing Carolina that he will keep her safe. As they fall in love, assassins try to prevent Carolina from being proclaimed Empress by killing her with her beloved keeping her safe. Besides her official duty ending anything permanent, Drew has a secret that he knows he must divulge, but once he tells her he fears Carolina¿s love will turn to hate......................... This is a terrific Victorian romance as Carolina surprises Drew by being anything but a spoiled royal. The conflict between the princess and her bodyguard is cleverly conceived so that readers see Drew slowly change his mind about his dependent until he falls in love with her. Though Carolina is perhaps a too perfect pretty princess, fans will appreciate this tale in which her champion would rather die to keep her safe although he knows nothing can ever come of his deep regard and love for his sweet diamond...............................

When I started reading page 1 of chapter 1 of Linda Needham's 'A Scandal to Remember', my eyebrows started to rise. By the end of the first chapter, they were firmly embedded in my hairline. Maybe I am too old for modern romantic fiction? Am I (gasp) a prude? I put the book aside and tried to think back the 50 years to when I was about the same age as Princess Caroline, the heroine. Yes, to be honest about it, I had the same feelings and questions she has; the difference is that in those days we didn't even admit them to ourselves, let alone anyone else. And what about men? Good heavens, how would I know - this was definitely beyond even the range of speculation in my circles. Even leaving out his consciousness of 'class difference', Andrew Chase, the Earl of Wexford, was something completely outside my sheltered existence. Attitude adjusted, I went back to the book - and enjoyed it immensely. There was plenty of suspense, lots of action and an ending which was not only completely unexpected but a real corker. I might have asked for just a bit more character development, but that would be nit-picking. This is a book I could and would recommend enthusiastically to my romance-reading friends - and to friends who have never before tried the genre. Romance writing has come a long way in the last 10 years.
