Sabrina Grayson is the most stubborn, hard-headed, irrational, misguided, confuding, and unrelenting debutante in all London. She has the misguided notion of marrying for convenience built on mutual friendship, and leaving out love, passion, and desire. She has based this on her opinion of her parents marriage. Even after her mother explained the circumstances of her marriage to Sabrina's father, she still refuses to see reason. Added to the fact the one of her elder sister's married for love ...more

My Musings

I really struggled with this book. I detested the heroine Sabrina. I did like the hero, but I have no idea why he fell in love with the heroine. I don't plan to read the next one in this series. Happy ☺reading 📚!

Good try to subvert genre tropes, but otherwise an utter failure, with purple prose and disgust-inducing scenes that are supposed to seem romantic but leave you wondering if the author really just wrote that. Often no lead up in various situations. Inconsistent characters. Sexism galore (you dressed that way, so you must want my attention; I have a right to touch you). Best point: heroine was caught kissing men (yes men) by busybodies, but didn't get married over it and proceeded to say screw ...more

Lucky lady- 3X compromised yet not ruined!

2 1/2 stars. Book began well. I was thoroughly engrossed. Hero was swoon-worthy, heroine was plucky and doggedly set on a course that was obstacle to HEA. About midway heroine's determination to ignore intuition and emotions became wearing. Then she devolves-fickle, blindly stubborn, irrational reasoning.
After she again shoves her tongue down a new man's throat (#4), I was hoping villain would off her and a new love would materialize for hero. Gave up

as frothy and sweet as a bowlful of mousse

I think I'm a bit too old to be reading historicals. I read my fair share of them ages ago, and the fact that they hold no interest for me is rather disappointing because I actually enjoyed reading these back in the day. I'm sure a lot of older ladies, particularly the retired sort, are still very much into them but I suppose I won't be seeking this genre in a long while. Most of the better ones were the non-politically correct, and thus were a bit out there but it was still interesting the fact

Lady Sabrina launches into society and finds herself surrounded with suitors...but cannot decide which one is right for her. She saw her parents marriage -and decided love isn't for her. She wants a marriage of convenience.

Her plans suffer a setback when she runs into her childhood nemesis- a man that tried to court her sister when she was a girl. Lady Sabrina has always been rebellious-afraid of very little. She knew her sister didn't want to marry Viscount Montgomery and did her level best to

Come from the first novel, this one was a little harder to read.

The amount of time that passes throughout the story was hard to determine. One has to pay close attention to the context of the text

When Percy approached Sabrina, Lefey uses his last name of Lord Falloure. I was mixed trying to decide if this was Percy or someone new. So I read the text slowly - almost painfully - because I wanted to know the first name. At the end of the passage, it is revealed that it was Percy

Overall, decent
Passionate love story with suspense thrown in

It took a while to warm up to the heroine but the hero was passionate, honorable and protective. You couldnt help but cheer him on in his quest for the heroines love. The heroine eventually comes around and realizes her folly in refusing the heros suit. Their newfound love must survive as they face danger and suspense at every turn.

Five stars for Liana LeFey's book, To Wed in Scandal. This book hooked me from the beginning and was so much fun to read. It was easy to imagine young Lady Sabrina Grayson back in 1713 London. Putting all her time and energy into finding the perfect husband, she is courted by four very different suitors. What ensues is an entertaining journey.

Lady Sabrina is the youngest sister about to be launched into her first London season and she is determined not to let her heart rule her choice of husband. Her mother did that and was dreadfully unhappy when her father took on mistresses and left her mothers bed. That was not the marriage she has decided upon and it would be a sensible choice with a man she could tolerate and not one that would consume her heart.

3.5 - 4 Stars

Even though I've rated books 1 and 2 in the "Scandal in London" series with the same scores, my two reviews will show that I read the books from different perspectives.

The second book, TO WED IN SCANDAL, came to me as an ARC First Reads book through a goodreads giveaway. I read and reviewed the previous book, COUNTESS SO SHAMELESS, because I thought these stories might involve some of the same characters, which was not the case.

The heroine of the story, Sabrina, grew up seeing her

Lady Sabrina saw her mother endure the pain and humiliation of watching her beloved husband take a string of lovers in the latter years of their marriage and she is determined to never let a man cause her that kind of heartache. Instead, she seeks a man she can respect and perhaps admire, but never lose her heart to. When Henry, Viscount Montgomery, her childhood nemesis, returns from India, the attraction between them is plain to all of London. And while her mother would like nothing more than ...more

Lady Sabrina Grayson has come to London for her debut with a plan. She watched her mother's heart break again and again as her father took mistress after mistress. Sabrina is determined to choose a husband that she will never love. Falling in love would be her sure path to heartbreak.

Henry, Viscount Montgomery, is the man who is determined to change her mind. He has known her since she was a child when she played many pranks on him to discourage him from courting her sister. She didn't know that

In this age of publishing cut-backs, it's rare to find a book so well written. The characters were believable, the plot well conceived, and the ending satisfying.

Lady Sabrina Grayson must find herself a proper husband, but after observing her mother's suffering when her father dies from the pox, she's determined to marry a man from whom she can guard her heart. The spirited beauty is pursued by all the wrong men, most notably Henry, Viscount Montgomery. She's known him since she played pranks on
Sabrina is a bit of a jaded woman. She has seen how her father's infidelity hurt her mother - but only because her mother loved him. So she has sworn off love and is looking for a man she can tolerate long enough to make an heir and a spare and then live their separate lives. But that is becoming more difficult than she originally thought. Instead of finding the one perfect suitor, she ends up with four imperfect ones - including Henry.

Sabrina Grayson is determined to avoid the kind of reckless love that ruined her mothers happiness, her mother loved her father and was hurt when he cheated. And so Sabrina wants a man who is compatible, but not one she can fall in love with. She thinks she finds this in Lord Fairford but the return of her childhood nemesis, Henry Herbert, Viscount Montgomery throws all her carefully laid plans out the window.

I won this book so I feel bad not giving it a great review. My issues with the story are simple. The angst that Sabrina went through over her decision about marrying was to long and drawn out. I wanted to slap her and say Get. Over. IT. The next thing is that in most historicals the usual type "Terror of the Ton" does not after one meeting reform and marry. It usually takes work on the ladies side to catch her rake. I blinked and it was over. Next, Lord Fairford won't look in her direction one ...more

I received this book free from goodreads first reads.
This book was ok. It was an enjoyable enough read I guess. I just have a problem with annoying characters I guess. I have a weakness for historical romances. So I was so excited when I received this book! But honestly I'm glad I didn't buy it. Sabrina, I guess that her name I'm not really sure, she was that annoying, refused to marry for love because of her parents. She witnessed her mothers hurt over her dads affairs. I get that, it was
Oh Sabrina how I wanted to like you. In the beginning I really did. I loved her history with Henry. Her childhood mischief was funny, sweet, and even endearing. I even understood her issues with marriage, but what a fool it made her. In the beginning I forgave her her idiosy. Unfortunately it carried on so long I began to want better for Henry. He deserved better than her poor treatment. To achieve her goals Sabrina seemed to be willing to hurt everyone in her wake. Not the best quality in ...more
This book hurt my heart. I have never read a more stubborn and idiotic female lead in my life. And I read a lot, so that's saying something. If this chick wasn't so stubborn, the book would have easily been over at the 50% mark! but no. It was dragged out and there was a serial killer thrown in just for the sake of it. I am (and was) less than amused to say the least. Not to mention the name just didn't fit the period at ALL. I just can't get over how much I disliked this book. I think it's ...more

Good, but the heroine was quite exhausting.........

I love a story of old acquaintances becoming unlikely lovers, a love unexpectedly. The beginning of the book, I liked how the heroine, Sabrina, gave chase to the hero, Henry (Lord Montgomery), for her affections. But then after awhile her aversions to becoming emotionally attached to someone she would marry started to grate on my nerves. It became exhausting after reading about each man she tries to marry in order to get away from the man she

The story of Sabrina and Henry full of fresh ideas in the story line, but difficult to believe even in fiction. The number of times she pushed Henry away only to immediately pull him back into her arms was unbelievable. Throw in the mixture of other suiters who all fell under her A girl would have been ruined many times over with the number of times Sabrina was caught in other mens arms. Loved the idea, but it just didn't sound plausible. Good points were that there were no ...more

This book was alright. Lady Sabrina get reunited with a foe she tormented in her childhood. But instead of the bitterness and hatred between the two there is all attraction and passion. This won't help her plans for ideal marriage because she is determine to marry for conscience not love. She doesn't want the same marriage as her parents and won't stand for a love to be had then lost to mistresses. She is determined to fine just the right man and her old foe won't work.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Lady Sabrina Grayson knows her heart and her mind and they both seem to be at odds with each other. Therefore the decision made for a long read, but a delightful one. Viscount Montgomery makes things hard for the lovely Sabrina.

Many have given poor reviews on this book because of the ups and downs of out heroine, which lead to frustrations. This for me made the book intricate enough to make you push forward. It brings out emotions.

This was a great book kept my on the edge of my seat. Cause I did not know if Sabrina would ever come to realize that she was always in love with Henry. She had to go though a lot before she even realized that she was in love with him along. For a while a though she was going to make a big mistake and end up with the bad guy that hurt women thank god Henry was there to save her. Loved the book can't wait to read more by Liana LeFey.
