4.5 Stars!!

A Little More Scandal brings a little more insight to the Christie family. It is a perfect addition to The Christies series as it lets you see a different side of Sir William instead of an enigma talked about by his children. That and it will wet your appetite for the next book, Starlight.

Yes it is fun to see William as a younger man, see him deal with society’s prejudices, understand more what he holds of value, and to see him squirm when he gets a little more than he bargained for i

Rhys' review posted on Guilty Pleasures

For Catrin Jones, living with secrets seems to be the only thing left that she is good at. After losing her fiancée to pneumonia, the only way she could cope was to run away from all the sadness. Being a woman of good breeding meant that she couldn’t do everything that she wanted, unless she married a willful husband, she took the next best option. Catrin became a war time nurse. After five years of loneliness and homesick for Wales, it was time to come hom

A LITTLE MORE SCANDAL is the story of the original Christies. At the beginning of FLAWLESS, Sir William Christie had just died and left his kids with some tough choices to face if they wanted their inheritance. This is his story.

William Christie is not a man of good family, he's made his fortune on his own, coming from nothing. After the death of his wife, whom he was married more for convenience and respect than love, he's hardened even further. Everyth
Awesome power couple alert!

I am so glad I followed GR's advice (never thought I'd hear myself say that) and read this novella first instead of Flawless. Even though A Little More Scandal is marked as '1.5' in the series, it's technically a prequel since it's about the Christie clan's patriarch William Christie, whose machinations are center stage of the other books' premises.

William and Catrin made quite the formidable pair. Their attraction was instant (something I usually loathe but found it s
This recently released novella is a prequel of sorts to Flawless and the just now released Starlight and features the patriarch of the Christie family. I've heard good things about Ms. Lofty's books but had never read one before. A 99c novella is a good way to test the waters with a new author. I do think it is hard to write a complete story in such a short word count so I was especially pleased with my reading experience. William Christie is a self made made, a large, arrogant, boorish Scot who ...more
I am pleasantly surprised! I started this book knowing almost nothing about the series and the author and ended it LOVING them both. I plan to go back and read the first book now, because this little taste got me addicted! :) What a great story and for me at least pretty original. Though the book is pretty short it’s not lacking details at all and the two main characters, William and Catrin, were very entertaining. I loved the banter between the two, they were made for each other. It’s always ni ...more

In London, July 1856, widower William Christie, a self-made wealthy man finds himself at a party. One of the invited guests is Catrin Jones, a modest nurse who is the toast of the town as the only survivor of a naval shipwreck.

Everyone wants to find out the details of her story, especially William who is about to buy the local failing newspaper. A story like Catrin’s would definitely jumpstart sales, but Catrin’s dead set on not revealing a word to anyone on the true nature of her survival.

In a very short period of time Carrie Lofty has become a favorite historical romance writer and her books 'must reads' for me. Ms. Lofty has the touch when it comes to penning passionate romances that combine wonderful characters with those little historical details that I love.

A Little More Scandal is a 90 page novella that can be read as a stand alone or as a prequel to Carrie Lofty's The Christies historical romance series. As a prequel, this passionate romance gives the reader insight into
Catrin is an adventuresome Welsh girl that after a near-death experience has decided to embrace life to its fullest. She is determined to find a rich husband so she can continue the bright and colorful life that she is living as the darling of society. After acting as a nurse in the Crimea and then coming through a shipwreck as the only survivor, everyone wants her story, but she tantalizes them further by not giving it to them.

One of the many who want Catrin's story is William Christie. His mo
Prequel to the Christie's series. Short and well done. Though, not the most appropriate thing to read during lunch hour at work. Oh well, that's what ebook readers are for. I think it's my first read from Lofty, certainly will be purchasing something else from her backlist. This short novella was the perfect way to check her out.

A delightful glimpse at the gruff Christie family patriarch and the passionate Catrin, an amazing, no-nonsense woman who had his number -- and his heart -- from the minute their eyes met. Lofty's short sizzles and leaves you begging for more!
3.5 stars

Okay, I was totally into this, but it's an extremely misleading ebook. Novella or not, previews for other works should not take up 40% of the book. Even if I really wanted to read one of them.
A well constructed short story. H and h are both likable flawed characters. Well written steamy sex. My first Carrie Lofty and I really like her writing. Will definitely read more of her books.
Pretty good! First time reading this author. I enjoyed the writing style and the prequel to the series. Exciting to read about William's children.
Lofty's work is always very hit and miss for me. This one didn't work for me at all.
So much fun to read and learn about the father of the Christies :)
