Good book about two people with scandal in their backgrounds who come together in a scandal of their own. The night before the battle of Waterloo, Edmund rescues Amelie from an attack. She is his half-sister's sister-in-law, one he has been drawn to but feels is too far above him. The emotions of the night overpower their common sense and they give in to the attraction they feel. Three months later, Edmund discovers that Amelie is carrying his child and insists on marrying her.

Si quieren conocer cómo comenzó toda la historia de Edmund y Amelie deben de leer el primer libro de esta serie ya que en este libro no te cuentan del todo lo que pasó antes en su primeros encuentros.
Que puedo decir esta novela fue mucho drama, llanto y casi nada de romance ni felicidad.
Sí me gustó, es decir, la autora DG escribe muy bien tiene coherencia, es rápida y dinámica pero si le falta ponerle un poco más de entusiasmo. Hubo muy poquitas escenas que me hicieron sentir mil cosas y las de

The Scandalous Summerfields miniseries is about a group of siblings who are trying to overcome the humiliating behavior of their parents, but before they can find lasting love, they have to prevail over shameful events in their own lives. The half-brother of three sisters constantly lives with the humiliation of being illegitimate, and now a new incident will just add more gossip about him. Whether Edmund Summerfield can prove that he is a worthy hero will depend on how he responds when he finds ...more

With a major battle looming, Lieutenant Edmund Summerfield notices a young woman alone and being accosted. Amelie Glenville knew she should not have been alone that night especially when emotions ran high. But when he saved her and realized who she was, one scandalous night follows, leaving behind consequences.

When Edmund learns of these consequences, he resolves to not allow his child to be raised as an illegitimate child. One himself, he knows first hand the difficulties, the feeling of not be

Despite starting off barely knowing each other, Edmund and Amelie were great communicators and trusted each other early on. What a joy it was to not have to slog through misunderstandings! One huge hurdle they faced was Amelie's parents' and their unwillingness to accept Edmund as her husband. This conflict only strengthened the young couples' bond, and I really enjoyed watching their marriage develop into something special. Even when they faced tragedy, they learned to

I LOVED this book! Such a joy to read. With my little one, I get a few minutes to read every few days--if I'm lucky--and it was extra tough to put this one down. I loved Edmund. Gaston is a wonderful writer.

#Critica 4 La noche previa a la batalla, el teniente Edmund Summerfield rescató a la cuñada de su hermana, Amelie Glenville y evitó que unos soldados la acosasen. Exaltados por la tensión e incertidumbre del ambiente, pasaron la noche juntos, pero ese escandaloso acto tendría una consecuencia ineludible...
Edmund, hijo ilegítimo de un aristócrata, no condenaría a su hijo a ese destino y le ofreció a Amelie casarse con ella, pero todos se oponían a ese matrimonio.
De todas formas, Amelie decidió ca

I enjoyed A Reputable Rake so I decided to try another one of her more recent books. What happened??? It's like Gaston spent 10+ years forgetting how to write. A Reputable Rake wasn't perfect and the characters behavior was a little silly at times but Bound By One Scandalous Night is... amateurish. It's like she got burned out or even handed it off to someone else with no experience to write. I don't know what to say. The descriptions are completely flat. The characterization is almost nonexiste ...more

Enjoying this series. So close to the action at Waterloo and the aftermath of that great battle in British history. Really like the down-to-earth characters of Edmund and Amelie. Patience, love and trust are hard won, but so very wonderful to have.

Well written story. Sad bit with a happy ending, however, the story line is too predictable.

Although Regency is not my favorite, I thoroughly enjoyed Daine Gaston's version of it. Definitely a scandalous start for the regency era, it captivated me nearly from the first page. I adored Edmond - the strong silent type - although I felt like slapping Amelie for not being more transparent to him. Maybe that was how girls were in that era and why I'm not fond of the period. I enjoyed this book very much, over all.
Leone (She Reads too Much Romance)

To be fairly honest I had a tough time just trying to push myself into reading Bound by One Scandalous Night in order to write a balanced review. The writing was decent in both the description and romance, but it just wasn't strong enough in comparison with some of the best romance writers of the modern world. The romance it wasn't too bad, but there wasn't enough chemistry for me to enjoy it fully, even though I felt the characters genuinely loved one another. The romance was what a reader woul

Disappointing, tepid Regency romance from Diane Gaston. Set right before Waterloo and shortly after it is the story of how illegitimate Lieutenant Edmund Summerfield saves the pure Amelie Glenville (a Viscount's daughter) from a vagabond's ravishing. Needless to say they develop quite a relationship and scandal follows them.

The best parts of this book was Lieutenant Summerfield's step-sister Genna who appears to be the subject of Gaston's next book in this series, Bound By a Scandalous Secret.
