This book is a sequel to A TASTE OF SIN, which is one of my favorite HRN. I've always wondered about Julian, elder brother of Sinjun in the prequel. He was described as a very honorable & responsible person albeit mysterious. He live by the rules and is over protective of his family. He also have a dark personal mission. To find the person responsible for the death of his fiancee. His character here in A Breathe of Scandal is consistent but is of course more detailed. We learn more about him and he is definitely not the prude man I thought he was in ATOS. In fact, he is a very passionate man. On one of his secret mission he was rescued my a gypsy woman named Lara. She claimed him as his husband to save his life. Yes, Lara did save him from death but she also added complication to his well contained heart & well organized life. What a riot! I love Lara's character. She is no nonsense and straight forward. She knows who she is and what she wants regardless of her new station in life. Sometimes she feels she doesn't fit in outside the Gypsy world yet she adapts well and never loses her personality. The Gypsies and their way of life was an interesting read for me. This is my first book with such kind of plot & the way Ms. Mason explains and describes it makes me feel like I am inside the book. It grabs my imagination. A Gypsy woman versus a Noble sure have a big difference in their ways of living and belief. Interesting! The relationship development of Julian & Lara is heart warming. They are both full of desire despite the contradiction of their mind. There's lots of sex scenes but I didn't mind it. For me, it's written with passion. You can feel their affection and not just lust. Of course, there's always the usual confusions and misunderstanding twist but there is also some element of surprises between them. The action and mystery line was a bit light and predictable, however since I am not much on action/mystery, this didn't bother me at all. Just thought I'd mention it here for others who prefer heavy action/mystery added on their romance books. The appearance of the characters in A TASTE OF SIN was one of the best part for me. I love reading updates of the characters from my previous books especially if they are my favorites. The Epilogue of this book was simply perfect. It's happy, filled with love, family & children. Goose bumps alert :-) The reason why this book didn't belong to a five star rate to me is because of the added romance of Emma and Rudy. I loved Emma's spunky character in A TASTE OF SIN and couldn't wait to read her very own story. I didn't expect her to simply be an extra piece here in A BREATHE OF SCANDAL. I didn't mind her marriage with Rudy, I think it's fitting but I would have love to read how she tamed Rudy. I just want more of her. Oh well, that's only a small niggle which unfortunately took one star out of my overall rating.

In 1750 on the Scottish coast, Lara Brewster saves Julian Thornton¿s life when smugglers try to kill him by claiming he is her Gypsy husband Drago. Lara¿s Gypsy relatives feel Lara and Drago are married, but he rejects the idea that a member of the Ton like him would marry a Gypsy even if he is very attracted to her. Still, they make love before he leaves in pursuit of the head smuggler¿ the Jackal¿ who killed Julian¿s fiancee years ago.

Back in London, Julian attends a ball in honor of Lara, who turns out to be an earl¿s daughter. Julian informs Lara they will marry because he compromised her. Although she loves Julian, she rejects him because she wants his love and can¿t compete with the ghost of his deceased fiancee. The Jackal¿s henchman recognizes Lara as the Gypsy who saved Julian¿s life, making her life forfeit unless Julian can save the woman he loves.

A BREATH OF SCANDAL is a powerful sequel to Connie Mason¿s warm Scottish Regency romance, A TASTE OF SIN. The story line is fast-paced and authentic, especially Julian¿s reactions to Lara the Gypsy vs. Lara the aristocrat. Lara is an intrepid individual who loves the people in both of her worlds and any spouse of hers would have to do likewise. The return of several popular characters from the first book adds to an exciting Regency romantic suspense that will leave Connie Mason¿s audience wanting the final book in her Scottish trilogy.

This is what Julian found outin meeting Lara the Gyspy who saved his life. Lara raised by the gypsies finds Julian about dead and to save his life says that he is her husband. The second part of A TASTE OF SIN. Julian has feelings for the girl, but thinks nothing can come from it because of her being a gyspy only to find later that her Father is of Nobel blood and that she is also as blue blooded as he is. I loved this book and will read it over and over.
