Originally published in IT STARTED WITH A WHISPER Anthology

Lady Sybil Anson thought she had it all. Even a match of the heart, despite so many London elite marrying for convenience. But the night before their betrothal was to become official, the love of her life vanished--with a hastily scrawled note and little more. She feared the worst as her heart ached for Gideon, and the scandal sheets simply made matters worse with their preposterous musings on the hows and whys of Viscount Galway's disappearance. Now, more than a year later, he's unexpectedly back, and Sybil will have her answers.

Many, many years ago, Gideon Lyndon made a grave mistake. One he's spent most of his adult life trying to rectify. And despite the progress made, the sacrifices were extensive and damaging. On the verge of repairing one misdeed, he finds himself faced with his greatest challenge yet: winning back the woman he has loved since the moment he met her. But after a year of silence, convincing his headstrong paramour to take him back will not be easy. Especially since he can't even explain why he left--not if he wants to keep her safe.

This is a story of soulmates beating all odds. I was hooked from the start when he disappeared wondering what had happened. I wasn’t sure how it all would play out when he returned and I really liked how that spark was still in full force. When everything came out I was holding my breath afraid of what would happen, but it was perfect. Sybil is nothing like the other girls and she doesn’t try to hide it. I loved her right away with how she did what she wanted and didn’t hold back anything. She wasn’t going to let him or anyone else control her life. Gideon had an extremely good reason for leaving when he did and it hurt his heart to do it. I loved his reason for leaving and that he really wanted to tell her, but couldn’t. He knew that she wouldn’t stop until she found out why.

4.5 Stars! This was such a different, very enjoyable historical romance. Lady Sybil can be described as resourceful and willful and it was a delight to meet her. I liked Gideon, too, even more so when I learned why he'd left Sybil without a word. While it was a wretched thing to do, at least he had a good reason. The chemistry between Sybil and Gideon was outstanding and I really liked that she didn't give in too soon when Gideon came back, he might have had a reasonable motive, but still, it didn't account for the scandal Sybil had to go through I loved Charles, Gideon's friend, and even if I wasn't too sure about Sybil's brother, he was pretty nice there in the end. The whole Lady X was a bit out there, but it helped move the plot along and set up the scenes. Plus, it was a great example of how the rumor mill worked in this particular era and how it could make or break a person. I hadn't read any books by Ms. McKnight, but judging by how much I loved this book, which I found thoroughly enchanting, I'll have to check out her backlist. Very recommendable! *** Copy provided to the reviewer via NetGalley for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement. ***

Great Read! I just loved The Lady Loves A Scandal by Christina McKnight! Christina is a very talented author and I have loved all of her books that I have read and this is no exception. This novella has everything I love in a story, romance, mystery, friendships, devotion and misunderstandings. The characters seem real and the descriptions so vivid that I found myself lost in the story. What I truly loved was the scandal newspaper clippings she added. It really brought out the feel for the story and what the scandal sheets were like back in 1815 London. Poor Lady Sybil Anson gets so confused and hurt when Gideon Lyndon, Viscount Galway disappear for a year the day before signing their marriage contract. I highly recommend you read this novella, you wont be disappointed!! ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

The Lady Loves a Scandal by Christina McKnight was originally in the anthology "It Started With a Whisper". This delightful story brings Gideon Lyndon, Viscount Galway who is wanting to win back Sybil Anson's affections. Having disappeared for over a year, he is trying to keep his secrets of why he left and keep Sybil safe. But as we all know, keeping secrets never works out! A lot of adventure with a mystery and bit of danger thrown in make this a page turner. A bumpy ride ensues as Gideon works hard to get Sybil back and have a happy ever after for them both. Christina McKnight always writes a great story full of engaging characters and sigh worthy heroes! Lori Dykes

From crazy in love to a disappearing groom, McKnight beguiles readers with Sybil and Gideon's long awaited road to a second chance. The Lady Loves a Scandal features a headstrong heroine, a mysterious hero and a passionate romance that ended in heartache. Sybil is the jilted bride searching for a reason why. Gideon is the vanishing groom who suddenly reappears at the most inopportune time. She's moving on, he wants her back. Let the battle begin.

This was a well-written Regency novella. Lady Sybil Anson was about to become engaged to the love of her life, when he disappeared suddenly. Over a year later Gideon Lyndon reappears, asking Lady Sybil for another chance. I enjoyed this novella and look forward to reading more stories by this author.
