Love in the Time of Scandal

Avon. (Scandalous, Bk. 3). Jun. 2015. 384p. ISBN 9780062244925. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062244932. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Free-thinking Penelope Weston has nothing good to say about Benedict Lennox or any man who plans to marry without love. Yet when Benedict rescues her from a lecherous attack and then proposes marriage to save her reputation when vile rumors begin to swirl, Penelope ends up doing the very thing she was set against—with surprising, ultimately successful results.
VERDICT Likable, flawed characters; an abundance of hot, passionate sex (helped along by Lady Constance and her notorious 50 Ways To Sin pamphlets); and a host of concerns that need sorting out result in a fast-paced, occasionally dangerous adventure. Another couple are happy at last, with enough unanswered questions here to keep fans anxious for the next book in the series. Linden (It Takes a Scandal) lives near Boston.
