A Night of Scandal (Bad Blood/The Notorious Wolfes #1)
Nathaniel... Icon. Celebrity. Heartthrob.
But underneath his movie-star good looks, he's battling with the demons of his past. No one knows the real Nathaniel, they only see the pinup, the illusion he pretends to be.
Then one night he is forced to rely on Katie Field, an ordinary young woman from a very different world. She may be starstruck but she isn't blinded by the b...more
And the title: Seriously? I cringe even typing it. This book was released under a different title at one point: A Night of Scandal. Besides having nothing to do with anything in the story, it probably wasn't nearly sexy enough for the rest of the series.
Here's the premise for the series: Eight (count 'em, EIGHT) siblings. Some full, some step, some half, all obscenely wealthy...more
It had some great things going for it that really held my attention. It's not a particularly long book, although the length is, in my opinion, absolutely perfect for the story.
What I really liked about this one:
- The writing is great. Nicely descriptive, not too many words, not too few, grammar and spelling is good (I know, I know, I'm being a bit anal here, but I hate it when spelling and grammar ar...more

The sad thing was…it could have been a 5 star book.
An actor? A tortured actor? Family secrets?
A sunny heroine that was not a nitwit? A cute witty sunny one?
Intrigue and Hollywood along with secluded islands?
A worthwhile mix.,,if only it hand not lack the spark.
Maybe some more drama? A surprise visit for the evil modeling sister?
Some other woman, a jilted lover, ex wife?
Bigger and really meaningful collision of the long lost brothers?
Something. A flare. A rocky patch.
Nathaniel Wolfe is a name everyone has heard. Legendary actor, sexiest man alive and ridiculously wealthy, Nathaniel is used to being in the spotlight. Little Katie Fields, relative unknown costume designer, is not. But all that is about to change. Nathaniel need...more

What fan of a handsome and sigh-worthy actor wouldn’t give their eyetooth to actually meet and spend time with the object of their fantasies? How would they respond when they found out that not only is the hunk not perfect, but that the man of their dreams has a world of nightmares haunting him? And what would the fan’s reaction be if they were drawn into that scary world?
All that and more is explored in this page turning tale, the l...more
A Night of Scandal
by Sarah Morgan
This is also the book club read for the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, Sizzling Summer Book Club for July
I was pleasantly surprised. I am not usually a big fan of Harelequin Presents because I like a little more heft to the romances and am not a huge fan of fairy tale type, innocent heroine, fluffy stories (nothing wrong with them, just not my cup of tea)
Both Nathaniel and Katie have a lot of family ba...more
This time . . . well. A Night of Scandal focuses on Katie, a financially struggling costume designer, and Nathaniel, a famous, handsome, talented actor. Nathaniel is such a good actor because it was his method for surviving his horrific childhood, and much of the...more
On the plus side--Sarah Morgan is a very capable writer; I actually read the whole thing. And the early scenes where our heroine Katie is babbling idiotically because she's with (OMG) Nathanial Wolfe(fabulous movie star) is too cute and just right.
However, to me that was the best part of the book.
Nathanial is a typical, tortured, OTT(over th...more
Nathaniel is a good, and as the title say, tortured hero. His childhood was horrible, and his father was a real monster. Now, he's an successful actor, voted many times as the Sexiest Man Alive. But he spends all of his time acting, playing the role of Nathaniel Wolfe, the famous actor, and not being the man. He mostly manages to fool people, but Katie is much harder to deceive.
Katie is a costume designer, and gets involved with Nathaniel accidentally. Sh...more

The setup was fun and funny. When Nathaniel runs off the stage and straight into Ka...more
In her most recent release, A Night Of Scandal, her main character is a gem. Katie Field, in a sense, is every woman I know. Someone who likes herself, is happy with her life, and is working hard to reach her dreams. But put her in...more
The writing was enjoyable and didn't feel rushed or "show not tell" which can be hard with such a limited number of words. I'd be interested in trying other Sarah Morgan titles and would...more
