USA Today bestselling author Caroline Linden's third novel in her Scandalous series brings together a feisty heiress, a notorious rake, and a shocking book that could bring one woman the utmost despair— or the greatest pleasure.
Penelope Weston does not like Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton. He may be the suave and charming heir to an earl, as well as the most handsome man on earth, but she can't forget how he abandoned a friend in need— nor how he once courted her sister, Abigail. He's the last man she would ever marry. If only she didn't feel so attracted to the arrogant scoundrel . . .
Once upon a time, Benedict thought he and Penelope got along rather well. Though he needs a wealthy bride to escape his cruel father's control, spirited Penelope just doesn't suit his plans for a model marriage—until a good deed goes awry, and scandalous rumors link his name to Penelope's. She might not be the quiet, sensible wife he thought he wanted, but she is beautiful . . . beguiling . . . and far more passionate than he ever imagined. Can a marriage begun in scandal become a love match, too?

Love in the Time of Scandal is the third book in this wonderful series. It is an enjoyable read with a beguiling, passionate heroine and a sweet, handsome hero with a cruel father. Penelope Weston and Benedict, Lord Atherton were the secondary characters in the previous book, although he wasn't one of my favorite when he was courting Penelope's sister, Abigail in " It Takes a Scandal", but he is an absolutely perfect hero in this book. He is kind, has been always taking the blame to save his sister from their cruel father and charming. Penelope is beautiful, the most loyal friend and do anything for the people she loved. She doesn't trust Benedict and has a mixed feeling over him. I like how she admits when she makes a mistake and how loyal she is with her friends. Carolin Lindon's writing is fantastic, this is another enjoyable read with scandal, romance, passion and adventure. Thank you Carolin Linden
This is a wonderful love story. Caroline Linden is a very good author and her books are well written. I do not write plot spoilers but highly recommend this book. This book can easily be read on its own, but if you have read the earlier books in this series you will know the secondary characters background. I highly recommend it.
Great read... I can't wait until the next one!
