Review: Secrets of a Scandalous Heiress by Theresa Romain




One good proposition deserves another...
Heiress Augusta Meredith can't help herself-she stirs up gossip wherever she goes. A stranger to Bath society, she pretends to be a charming young widow, until sardonic, darkly handsome Joss Everett arrives from London and uncovers her charade.
Augusta persuades Joss to keep her secret in exchange for a secret of his own. Weaving their way through the treacherous pitfalls of a polite world only too eager to expose and condemn them, they begin to see that being true to themselves is not so bad...as long as they're true to each other...


Theresa Romain sure knows how to shake up a traditional historical romance story. I'm still smiling over the nerve of Augusta Meredith! I mean I totally understood her reasoning but I can't believe she had the guts to go through with her charade. She and Joss have so much in common and yet they are the exact opposite in so many ways. Their chemistry is amazing and entertaining. I loved watching the two of them interact, it was witty and passionate and over-all endearing. This is a fun and at times funny and a little mystery was a bonus. If you are looking for a story that encourages you to find yourself and embrace your uniqueness this is one for you. I'll be looking forward to reading more by this author to see if she can keep me giggling out loud in her other offerings.
