Scandal in the Night (Reckless Brides Series #3) by Elizabeth Essex


A Reckless Brides novel from Elizabeth Essex

Assuming a false identity as a prim and proper governess, the bold and beautiful Cat Rowan thinks she has finally escaped the wild misadventures of her past—and the wickedly handsome spy who seduced her in India. Imagine her surprise when her employer introduces his brother: the very same cad who destroyed her heart!

The Honorable Thomas Jellicoe cannot believe his eyes when he sees his beloved Cat—the Scottish beauty who nearly jeopardized his mission in India. Disguised as a horse trader from the bazaars of the Punjab, the British spy risked his life for one night of passion in her arms. But here and now—breaking all rules of decorum—one heated kiss ignites a flurry of gunfire. For their enemies have followed them home. And love is the greatest danger of all…

The first book I've read by Elizabeth Essex, I'll be looking for more. Cat Rowan was in India living with relatives when she met an Indian horse trader Tanvir Singh and spent a night with him. A fire and her family's deaths the same night drove her back to England. She changed her name and became a meek governess. At a picnic she was introduced to her employer's brother, the horse trader who was really Thomas Jellicoe. Why did she change her name. Spies, murders and attempted murder fill the book.

Loved! Loved! Loved this book! I was transported from the English countryside to the Indian bazaar as Thomas and Cat's story unfolded through a series of flashbacks. Favorite characters from Almost a Scandal and Breath of Scandal reappear to assist the lovers fickle fate has torn apart and suddenly reunited! This book is a must read for fans of the Reckless Brides!

Reviewed by Juli Williamson for Readers' Favorite "Scandal in the Night" by Elizabeth Essex is a piece that gives the reader a glimpse into the life of a Scottish lass Catriona and the second son of a British noble, Thomas Jellicoe, and the life that might have been enjoyed if one was a spy in India when the sun never set on the British Empire and the other had secrets of her own. It is a romance that skillfully skips from the characters’ past and weaves the excitement into their present. It is a tale that encourages the characters to remain true to themselves while exhibiting understanding, acceptance and acknowledgment of those differences to each other as each is pretending to be someone else. An Sikh horse trader and a prim governess are thrown together, strike sparks off each other. The lives that they each create lead to chaos in the inner circle of the English settlement and ruling class. A great romance that has Cat and Thomas getting to know each other in adverse conditions yet falling for each other in spite of the problems that it might cause. Poetically written with lyrical prose that has a great flow, "Scandal in the Night" is a joy to read, full of romance and a strong sexual tension that builds over time and remains through adversity to build to a future in a distant land that is as unexpected as it is welcome.

I loved this book! I read the first book of this series and loved it, then was disappointed by the second book and holiday novella. But this book didnt disappoint, it was every bit as good as the first, a true epic. Both of the characters were lovably real, and Thomas was especially wonderful. The storyline told in real time and flashbacks was spectacular, the chemistry and romance were unforgettable. A really great book. Cant wait for the next one!
