One Night of Scandal (Bluestocking Brides, #2)

by Nicola Cornick

Book review

One Night of Scandal is about Deborah Stratton, a widow who has a jaded past and a secret she wants to keep at all cost, and Richard Kestrel, the man who, at first, propositioned her to be his mistress only to realize he was desperately in love with her and want her hand in marriage instead.

I love Deb’s character. She’s feisty, impetuous and she matched Richard very well. I liked that she was trying too hard to deny what she’s feeling for Richard but as the saying goes “its chemical” and in the end she just couldn’t help herself.

A rake with a conscience that’s one way I can describe Richard. It’s fun being inside Richard’s head, his frustration about Deb and their situation, a situation which could be blamed on his reckless behavior when he mistakenly asked her to be his mistress without assessing his own feelings first. Typical male, is all I can say. But for all Richard’s faults he made up for it with other things. On how he treated Deb and how he believes in. I guess reformed rakes really are the best after all.

Deb and Richard’s story is like watching a game of tag.The relentless chase and the scrapes they find themselves into. I enjoyed how they spar with each other and with themselves, how they grew together and how they bring out the worst and the best in each other.

Another thing I enjoyed about this book is the side story of Olivia and Ross. I don’t usually pay particular attention to secondary characters unless they have their own story (a.k.a book part of the series) but I can’t help but fall in love with the two of them. It showed variety on the story and honestly, I re-read their part at least three times just for the laughs. The switched rose-scented aphrodisiac and pig ointment was epic! And I’m glad they sorted out their differences and feelings in the end.
