“I see it, Jack. Your muse is back. The thing that gave you passion, tormented you, and haunted you is back. You're reeling in ecstasy and dread. It's something you want, but can't ever have. And the one that brings the pain is pure, white as snow... and standing in front of you.”

One kiss could have changed Abby’s life, but when it didn’t happen, she ran. Jack was everything to her and when he didn’t respond, Abby couldn’t bear it. Everything about that night--leaning in close to his face, feeling the night breeze teasing her hair, the way his scent filled her head—was burned vividly into her mind, including the moment when Jack pulled away. There was no kiss. Abby was wrong. She was wrong about him, wrong about them.

Maybe she didn’t have to go to college two thousand miles away, but she did. She had to forget about him. Abby threw herself off the grid, disappearing completely from the life she knew. After completing her undergraduate degree, she enrolled in seminary. All contact with her old life was severed and she never looked back, until she was forced to.

When Abby puts idealism into practice, her congregation throws her out. If she can survive a year on her own, they’ll take her back, and continue to pay off her student loans—but if she fails, Abby is on her own with enough debt to fund a small town. Seminary wasn’t cheap. With no place left to go, Abby returns to New York and her best friend takes her in.

Desperate to make it on her own and prove she was right, Abby follows a job lead to an art studio on Long Island. It isn’t until she hears Jack’s voice that she freezes. The hairs on the back of her neck prickle as she turns to see Jack, ten years later, looking even more tempting than before.

Fate is cruel. Abby left this life behind, but she’s thrown back into it, head first. It’s like someone hit rewind on her life and its ten years earlier. She’s the cotton-mouthed girl that she always was around Jack, and now her future relies on the man who rejected her.

    Intriguing, original storyline

    Great read! With so many romance books out there with the same basic storyline this book was refreshing. A fun, sexy, read with a little mystery. My only complaint is that the ending seemed a liitle rushed.

    Absolutely wonderful!!! I don't know how Holly does it, but she

    Absolutely wonderful!!! I don't know how Holly does it, but she did it again. H.M. Ward is one of the most
    brilliant and talented writers that I've had the pleasure of enjoying. This story was beautiful and amazing.
    Jack and Abby are great together. Holly has a way of creating characters that you'll fall for and not forget.
    Her stories are mesmerizing. And I'll tell you, that Jack Gray must be one hell of a man. To win the heart
    of a woman and make her toss aside her vows! Wow! But then again, it seems that he always had her
    heart and just never realized it. If you haven't read Scandalous or any of Ward's other books, you should.
    You will not be disappointed. I'm sure you'll want more, just like me. Time to read Scandalous 2!

    I read this book a while ago (I am trying to catch up on my reviews that I have been slacking on)
    When I first started reading this book I was like wait a minute! He does what?
    This entire book was shocking to say the least. I loved it from start until finish and couldn't wait for the next one.
    Scandalous is different that is for sure.
    While the story line flows very smoothly its a wild ride so hold on tight. You will want to read it all in one night so make sure you have time.

    Okay Story......

    For this being a short story it took me a while to read it, I just couldn't get into the story. I did not care for the whole minister bit & the reasons for why she left the church.....goofy reason I thought. This book didn't get good until almost 2/3 of the book. Glad I only paid $.99 for it!

    Good read but too rushed.

    I enjoyed this story but I felt like it was way too rushed which is the total opposite of Miss Ward's "The Arrangement" series which is way too drawn out. She should stick with formats like she used for "Damaged" and "Stripped" both of which seem to have a much better flow to their story lines.

    I had high hopes after reading all the reviews but I was serious

    I had high hopes after reading all the reviews but I was seriously disappointed. The whole storyline was extremely far-fetched and, in an effort to not give away any spoilers, the whole sex/paint thing was ridiculous.
