Scandalous Again (Switching Places #1)
Madeline de Lacy, the duchess of Magnus, prides herself on being one of the most sensible young women in England, which is why she can't believe that, in a turn of the cards, her noble father has lost his entire estate -- and her! -- to a stranger.
On a mission to salvage her family fortune, she change ...more
I was pretty excited by the premise of this book. I love, love, love second chance romances. I love seeing two people try to work out their issues enough to be together despite being burned once before. I don't love all second chance romance stories--some people are jus ...more
And I have to say that impression still is correct. I just like the cousin's character better.
Madeline, the duchess or future duchess, was born into nobility and knew that she was "better" than everyone else. She met Gabriel, a lord without a fotrune to go with his title and they fell madly in love. Madeline was ...more
There's very strong chemistry between Madeline and Gabriel. He needs to be in charge though and he needs to be ne ...more
I thought that the characters had perfect chemistry! The blend of suspense and romance is what really makes this book. I definately recommend reading this.
The first sex scene in this book is also unique! It does not follow the normal routine, but instead follows a set of rules all it's own.
I enjoyed this story a lot. I liked the heroine very much she was strong, smart and didn't take any crap. I liked the hero too he was great. They had some great chemistry together and a couple very nicely written sex scenes.
The story line and plot was good. The switching identities story line was fun. There was a villain and gambling plot too. There is lots of dialogue throughout the entire book.
As for the narration, it was good. The ...more
The switching cousins was a great angle I loved seeing how both tales evolved! Bold and brash Madeline and sweet shy Eleanor. Terrific stories!
I am currently on a Regency kick and this one was awesome!!

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
I love historical romances. I’ve had the two books in this series sitting on my shelf for quite a while. I was in the mood for a historical romance, so I actually decided to pick up the books. But I wasn’t sure of the order, and I actually ended up reading this book (book 1) after it’s sequel. However, since the books are taking place simultaneously it wasn’t too frustrating to me.
The premise ...more

Dodd, author of the bestselling Governess Brides series (My Favorite Bride, etc.), is back with the first Regency-era romance in her two-part Changing Places series. Lady Madeline de Lacy, one of the most powerful women in England, is struggling to hold her family together following her gambler father's catastrophic loss at cards. When she learns that he has gambled away her hand in marriage and is planning to stake her most precious heirloom in the Game of the Century, s...more
Nem egy eget rengető alkotás, de szórakoztatott és kikapcsolt. Ennyi nekem elég. Az alaptörténet nagyon jó, a szereplőkkel sincs gond. Madeline néha túl parancsolgató és makacs, de ez nem ment a rovására. Voltak jó beszólá ...more
This was a good book but the description is a little misleading. It says they switch places so I thought there was going to be two stories. However, I was wrong and to find out what happens to Eleanor you have to read the next book. I can't see that happening. I feel like someone was trying to trick into buying another book and that irritates me to no end.
That being said, I did like Madeline and Gabriel. Her father, Magnus was sweet but a little crazy. Lady Thomasin was sweet, too.
