really liked it

A Scandal by Any Other Name is a lovely story about a reforming rake and woman who has remained hidden. Julia has a limp and a spinal injury/deformity that she has lived with all of her life. She has been forced to stay out of society and hidden by her mother. Julia thought to never marry, being a third-wheel in her sister's household and facing this possibility she is shocked when she meets a man who wants her.
Jasper is running away from his inheritance. After his grandfather died, Jasper isn't ready to step into his shoes and decides to hide for a bit. When he meets Julia, he is instantly smitten by the beauty, never realizing she is his best friend's sister-in-law.
The romance between Julia and Jasper is very sweet. Julia decides to take control of her life and take a lover - believing she will never have another chance. Jasper is looking for something more permanent with Julia. He is falling for her and believes he is ready to change, drop the rakish persona and become a constant man for the woman he loves.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
There are obstacles - of course - but Julia and Jasper are two people who really deserve their happy ending. There are some semi-steamy love scenes which served to add spice and realism to the story. Recommended for romance readers who enjoy a sweet story with added spice.
