About the Author

Reading romance novels came easily to Elisa Braden. She’s been doing it since she was twelve. Writing them? That took a little longer. After graduating with degrees in creative writing and history, Elisa spent entirely too many years in “real” jobs writing T-shirt copy ... and other people’s resumes ... and articles about giftware displays. But that was before she woke up and started dreaming about the very unreal job of being a romance novelist. Frankly, she figures better late than never. Elisa lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, where you're constitutionally required to like the colors green and gray. Good thing she does. Other items on the "like" list include cute dogs, strong coffee, and epic movies. Of course, her favorite thing of all is hearing from readers who love her characters as much as she does.

This book has it all: mystery, romance and scandal! Eugenia made an excellent heroine, she's headstrong determined and craves the opportunity to simply be herself. Unfortunately for our heroine being yourself doesn't fit with regency England. Shamed by scandal, Eugenia has formulated a plan to live out her dreams in spinster hood. Of course these plans come crashing down with tortured "hero" Phineas Brand, Earl of Holestoke stumbles back into Eugenia's life with poisonus secrets. Peculiar as the Earl may be headstrong Eugenia can't stay away. As her knack for helping ensnares them in the biggest scandal of all the Earl will have to decide if he's open for another chance at love?

I’ve enjoyed all of Elisa Braden’s books in this series - and this one is a new favorite. I love the dialogue, warm humor and the deeper glimpses into each character’s psyche. Phineas and Genie were so much fun to get to know, and their love story (lots of warm fuzzies) is not to be missed! Personally, I’d like my own Primvale, complete with gardens, griffins and fabulous hats. Can’t wait for the next scandal!

"A Marriage Made in Scandal" by Elisa Braden is the nine book in her Rescued from Ruin series and may be the best one yet, although I am mighty fond of the earlier books. Lord Phineas Holstoke has had his hat attacked by a small dog and being the precise person he is, he goes directly to the hat-maker's shop to have it repaired. In the adjacent millinery shop works Eugenia Huxley, fourth daughter of the Earl of Berne, who is trying to recover her life from being ostracized by the ton in the wake of her discovery in the arms of a footman, with her clothing rather more disheveled than it should have been. Genie, acting on impulse greets Holstoke, an acquaintance from six years earlier when he was courting her sister, Maureen. Holstoke is peculiar, always has been. Genie rushes right in whether she should or not. Holstoke is academic, precise, devoid of passion in any area of his life. Genie is all about other people: she reaches out, cares for them, embarrasses them. An unlikely duo that comes together in this unlikely book in a series featuring unlikely duos. This book features appearances by characters and situations from previous books, which is always welcome as the series moves forward. We get to know the main characters in depth, particularly Holstoke, who becomes one of the most endearing in the series. This is a well-drawn tale, just enough intrigue and angst to keep everyone happy. Clever story, clever details in the story. One of the best things is that the female protagonist in each of Braden's books is smart and knows just how to handle things. Love this book. I could not recommend it more highly if Regency Romance is your genre.

Ms. Braden has written a beautiful love story filled with the most interesting characters, beautiful settings and lots of intrigue. It's hard not to love the two main characters, Eugenia and Phineas (Lord Holstoke). She is linked to a scandal which makes her a pariah of sorts. He is being accused of poisoning females in London. When Eugenia tries to help Phineas by being his alibi when one of the murders was committed, he is turn decides to marry her and that is when the fun and intrigue begins. Ms. Braden's writing is so compelling that you will not want to put this book down. She makes you smile, and laugh and feel sadness as you get to know the primary and secondary characters. I hope this book leads to a story for Hannah and Jonas. Well done Ms. Braden..Well done!!

If you have not yet experienced the magic of Elisa Braden’s Regency England, I am both sad and happy for you. Sad, that you’ve not had the joy, but happy now that you know you can! Elisa is on a very short list of writers that I consider Diamonds of the First Writer, literally speaking. Her books are beautifully crafted, elegantly written, and combine the perfect amount of angst, pathos, adventure, and humor. In her newest, “A Marriage Made in Scandal”, we catch up with the third Huxley daughter, Lady Eugenia. Genie is recovering from a “slight” (cough) scandal involving a footman and skirts up to there. Anyway, she is saved from a dreary future by Lord Phineas Brand, the Earl of Holstoke (whom faithful readers may remember as the suitor of Genie’s elder sister, Maureen). What ensues is a marvelous romp of murder, fashionable hats, steamy romance, and pithy observations by the Dowager Marchioness of Wallingham. PLEASE be kind to yourself and read this marvelous series!
