Scandal in the Night by Elizabeth Essex



Assuming a false identity as a prim and proper governess the bold and beautiful Cat Rowan thinks she has finally escaped the wild misadventures of her past and the wickedly handsome spy who seduced her in India. Imagine her surprise when her employer introduces his brother the very same cad who destroyed her heart.
 The honorable Thomas Jellicoe cannot believe his eyes when he sees his beloved Cat-the Scottish beauty who nearly jeopardized his mission in India. Disguised as a horse trader from the bazars of the Punjab the British spy risked his life for one night of passion in her arms, but here and now – breaking all rules of decorum – one heated kiss ignites a flurry of gunfire for their enemies have followed them home and love is the greatest danger of all.
 I really enjoyed reading Scandal in the night. I think it was written very well and kept me wanting more. The story line is great and had lots of action in it. It went into detail so much that I was able to imagine this story in my head.
There were a few lines in the book that I liked. The first one caught my eye and made me want to continue reading on to find out more and that was “Now, you’ll tell me whatever price is correct for a transaction of this nature so this mountain devil doesn’t take advantage of me.” The second one made me laugh and that was “ Our malefactor won’t have a large sign hanging over his head saying I’m unusual pay attention to me.”
