That Scandalous Summer by Meredith Duran

When a wicked widow meets a sexy doctor, sparks fly in this sizzling and evocative Regency romance.

One Daring Widow

In the social whirl of Regency England, Elizabeth Chudderley is at the top of every guest list, the life of every party, and the belle of every ball. But her friends and admirers would be stunned to know the truth: that the merriest widow in London is also the loneliest. Behind the gaiety and smiles lies a secret longing—for something, or someone, to whisk her away. . . .

One Reluctant Suitor

Raised in scandal, Lord Michael de Grey is convinced that love is a losing gamble—and seduction the only game worth playing. But when duty threatens to trump everything he desires, the only way out is marriage to a woman of his brother’s choosing. Elizabeth Chudderley is delightful, delicious—and distressingly attractive. With such a captivating opponent, Michael isn’t quite sure who is winning the game. How can such passionate players negotiate a marriage of necessity— when their hearts have needs of their own?

I like the author. This must have been an earlier book. It just dragged on and on. I wanted to like it more because I really liked Michael. Move on to book 2. I gave "Fool me Twice" 5 stars... funny, sexy, romantic.

I enjoyed the story, it caused me to go back and read the two books before it Bound By Your Touch and Written on Your Skin and the one that came after it Fool Me Twice!

I really liked the first book I read by this author, but I was disappointed by this one. It didnt have the wonderful heroine, the historical context, the complex storyline, the chemistry of the first. The hero was quite likable but the heroine was a bit too flawed. The storyline was simple and contrived, there wasnt much chemistry. Its not a bad book, but a bit of a waste.

Wonderful writer - ditto comment below. Great characters and dialogue and well-crafted plot. Ms. Duran has been added to my "must-read" author list!

This book could have been good but drags on and on with repetitive details that are boring and full of angst and frustration. Then there are the mean and self centered aquaintances of Liza & Michael who are much too prominent in the house party storyline...which seems endless. Very disappointing.
