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
You see, Nathaniel is not an accoladed, successful actor for no reason. Playing roles was a way to escape from his terrible childhood, in which he was treated in a way no child should have to experience by his pare...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
Our hero Nathaniel is a Hollywood super-star who feels more comfortable as an actor than as N...more
I love HPs that have real dialogue, and the way the characters in this book talk is very natural (including the heroine's nervous non-stop talking). And finally, a heroine who is supposed to be curvy and body conscious doesn't just slip on the skimpy bikini the hero had ordered for her on their way to their island paradise.
The book provides a great intro to the Wolfe siblings (and horrid upbringing) -- I can't wait to read more about t...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
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

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
