Aurora Paxton was once the belle of the ball, the most sought-after debutante of the season—until a scandalous mistake ruined her.Shunned by her family, Rory was banished to the country to live in disgrace. Now she’s been summoned back to London by her stepmother, who is being blackmailed by the least likely person Rory can imagine: Lucas Vale, Marquess of Dashell.
Lucas is someone Rory’s known for years—a man as devastatingly handsome as he is coldly disapproving of her. What in the world could he want from her or her family? Rory intends to find out as soon as she comes face to face with her old foe. What she never expects, however, is that the icy aristocrat has a soft spot for her—and a secret plan to redeem her status. Could it be that Lucas has been in love with Rory all along. . .and has finally found a way to win her heart?
The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake is a sweeping Regency romance you won’t be able to put down!
I will begin as I always do, by thanking NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
This book to me was similar to a second chance love, though it was a second chance at life really. Aurora gets her chance to get back into the good graces of society as well as get back to being who she was always supposed to be. The woman for Lucas. The woman who would bring him joy and peace. Though Lucas never gave himself the chance to show Aurora his feelings when she made her debut years before, he makes sure not to make that same mistake again. Though the reasons she is in his home are not the ones he wishes for he still tries. This was an awesome book about second chances and rising from the ashes.
