~It Started With A Scandal~
From Christi Caldwell – Only for Her Honor
When Captain Lucas Rayne returned from fighting Boney's forces, he was a shell of the man he'd been--until Eve Ormond begins work in his household. Desperate for new beginnings, Eve conceals secrets of her past from her employer. But can she break down the walls protecting Lucas's heart, or will the secrets between them shatter all hope of true love?
From Eva Devon – Sleepless in a Scandal
All Lady Felicity Drake wants is to make a good match but after her father leaves herself and her sisters almost entirely ruined due to some very scandalous behavior, such a thing is next to impossible. . . That is, until she's caught in a compromising position with the Marquess of Talbot. The question is, will the oh so staid Marquess save her from the proverbial wolves or will he leave her to her scandal?
From Elizabeth Essex – A Fine Madness
Miss Otis regrets...
The entirely of Miss Elspeth Otis's inheritance from her wastrel of a father is a battered old trunk with some scrawled-upon foolscap sheets. Nothing that could free her from a stifling life with her fusty maiden aunties in a musty old cottage in a misty corner of Scotland. Nothing that will give her the life she's always dreamed of--a life full of kindness and kisses and love. Or will it?
Mr. Hamish Cathcart wants more than anything to avoid the hasty marriage to a brewer's daughter his father, the earl, has arranged to revive his fortunes. Hamish's only hope is his failing publishing company, whose only asset is a scandalously banned book by an infamous, but unfortunately deceased, author. But when a new novel written by the same man lands on Hamish's doorstep, he'll go to any length to secure it--any length but love.
From Anthea Lawson – A Lady's Choice
Lady Sara Ashford has spent years cultivating her spotless reputation: a difficult task in the face of her mother's scandalous exploits abroad. Now she is set on a path toward a perfect, respectable future--until the highly unsuitable Comte du Lac comes to London, and she is given the task of instructing him on how to behave properly in English Society.
At first Lady Sara finds him intolerable, but after he steals a kiss she realizes he is a terrible danger to her future. As soon as possible, she must put him out of her life--and her heart--forever.
From Erica Ridley – Lord of Chance
Charming rake Anthony Fairfax is on holiday to seek his fortune...and escape his creditors. When an irresistible Lady Luck wins him in a game of chance--and a slight mishap has them leg-shackled by dawn--the tables have finally turned in his favor. But when past demons catch up to them, holding on to new love will mean destroying their dreams forever.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, an anthology is the best way to get to know authors if you didn't know them before. I got this particular one because I'm a super fan of one the authors but I'm ever so glad I got to know the work of the others as well. Only for Her Honor by Christi Caldwell~ Eve is trying to escape from the sin's of her family while Lucas is trying to survive in a whole that is giving him no reasons to live. More than scandalous this is was a story that tugged to the heart and hit in all the right places. Sleepless in a Scandal by Eva Devon~ The least thing the Marques of Talbot wants is to get married. The only thing Felicity is trying to accomplish is find a suitable husband for herself and all of her sisters. This story was a bit on the lighter and funnier side. The relationship may feel a little rushed but I think given the circumstances it was totally understandable. A Fine Madness by Elizabeth Essex ~ Elspeth has lived a very sheltered albeit strict life a the hands of her two old maiden aunts. However once she gets the chance to visit her father's sister, she fulfills her lifetime wish of seeing more than the village where she's lived all her life. I believe this one was the longest of all the stories and perhaps the least spicier. I didn't want to give anything away when it came to the stories themselves but I do believe the set as a whole will any historical romance lover plenty satisfied. 3 and half stars rounded to 4. ** I was gifted a copy of this story from the author at no cost to me and volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher **
Only for Her Honor by Christi Caldwell The Theodosia Sword Series Book Two Captain Lucas Rayne has returned home from the war a different man.

Be sure to read book one in the series; Only for His Lady. As with all of Christi Caldwell's books and series...it's another good one. **Sensual
