Overview

His Scandal by Gayle Callen

Taming a Rogue

Lady Emmeline Prescott is shocked when Sir Alexander Thornton, the most incorrigible scoundrel in England, suddenly notices she even exists-and starts flirting with her! The dashing cad has a well-earned reputation for carousing that brings a blush to checks, but more distressing still I is the unwanted desire he arouses in her!

To win a wager, Alex must win a kiss from an innocent maiden, But first he must get past the giggly girl's chaperone-her straitlaced older sister, Lady Emmeline. And to his dismay, it is the enchanting, levelheaded Emmeline who intoxicates him with her soft sensuality and eminently kissable lips. Yet such a conquest is unthinkable-unless Alex abandons his cherished reprobate ways... and surrenders to his heart's traitorous yearning for a true and passionate love.

This book dragged on and on. It could have been a great story if it was 100 pages or less, not 269. Very disappointed!!!

In 1589 London, the Ton praises Viscount Spencer Thornton for his work as a spy. His job helped the English defeat the Spanish Armada. At the same time, the aristocracy holds his younger twin Alexander in contempt for masquerading as Spencer even though that enabled his sibling to stay safely undercover. His so-called friends refuse to speak to him and Alex misses estate management and Parliament. He feels the only thing he is good at doing is causing scandals.

A bored Alex bets Edmund Blackwell that he can obtain a kiss from a virgin first. Alex selects Elizabeth Langston as Edmund¿s target while the latter chooses Blythe Prescott as the former¿s sacrifice. Alex flirts with Blythe, who is guarded by her spinster older sister Emmeline. To his shock, Alex finds himself dreaming of Emmeline rather than Blythe who now seems so young. Soon Emmeline concludes that Alex purposely projects the image of a wastrel. She has seen his kindness and decides to marry him, but must take things into her own hands if they are to wed.

HIS SCANDAL is a thrilling Elizabethan romance that is superb when the lead protagonists are on center stage. The fast-paced story line is filled with delightful support characters that amplify the understanding of the lead couplet. Though a subplot involving attacks on Alex takes away from the main tale, Gayle Callen renders a strong tale that complements her previous novel HIS BETROTHED starring Alex¿s twin and leave her audience anxiously awaiting the final tale in the trilogy.
