Since I enjoyed my first Diane Gaston (The Vanishing Viscountess) so much, I decided to read the next one too. This was a bad decision, as I disliked almost everything about this book.

The hero Adrian was way too passive and beta for me. He helps out the heroine but after having sex with her (in the opening chapters), he seems to disappear almost entirely for the next 100 pages. He tries to see the heroine but goes away meekly enough when she shoos him away. I'm used to heros who make things hap

I highly recommend Scandalizing the Ton.

Diane Gaston has delivered another winner. The hero is a rake who is really a nice man but his father will not give him any resposibilties so the only thing he has to do with his time is flirt and gamble. The heroine is in the middle of a huge scandal. Her own sister has refused to help her and her parents are traveling and none of her letters pleading for help have been answered. She is being watched by reporters constantly. Her finances are in ruin. She

One of my favorite reads in 2013. Historical romances tend to be so similar, but this one was very unique and I truly loved every minute of it. I found myself getting mad and happy, sad and excited, and so many more emotions that I usually just push through.

This book is simply a favorite.

The woman in this did my head in. The whole way through she is an idiot, she constantly thinking everyone hates her even when on numerous occasions some people prove otherwise. The ending could have been better too.

The heroine is a widow who's being blamed for her dead husband's financial shenanigans, and hounded by the press. She's rescued by an earl (or other title) who is looking for something Real to do with his life. She seems to be a good project, especially since she's not at fault for her husband's misdeeds. A lot of the conflict in this story has to do with the early version of paparazzi (yeah, they got started back then)--there's a subplot romance involving a reporter--but there's a LOT of scanda ...more
Although not listed as part of a series, this is nonetheless linked to the Vanishing Viscountess. Less original perhaps than the Mysterious Miss M, and relatively predictable this is still a good read. I needed a lightweight book for a train journey today, and this was perfect.

The top right hand corner of the cover has been clipped off for some reason.

Usually enjoy Diane Gaston, but not so much this title. Not every read with an author can be a home run, or even a triple. The heroine ruined this for me. From the first chapter she annoyed me. Adrian was a fine, if somewhat passive hero. I finished it, at any rate~
i guess seeing as it was harlequin and the fact i was in the mood for a little more romance, this one came up short of that. It was a good story though if you are looking for a quick under 300 page story.

I can't believe I carried on reading this book. It was rubbish, I wasn't expecting a lot but it didn't even meet my very meagre expectations!

And the heroine was incredibly irritating...
Hardly any real discussion between the main couple, but entertaining enough.

Not your typical regency romance love story! Good-read!
