In a very short period of time Carrie Lofty has become a favorite historical romance writer and her books 'must reads' for me. Ms. Lofty has the touch when it comes to penning passionate romances that combine wonderful characters with those little historical details that I love.

A Little More Scandal is a 90 page novella that can be read as a stand alone or as a prequel to Carrie Lofty's The Christies historical romance series. As a prequel, this passionate romance gives the reader insight into Sir William Christie's character, the patriarch of the family, and adds depth to The Christies' series as a whole.

Sir William Christie is a self-made man who clawed his way from the bottom rungs of Glasgow's society's ladder and gained entrance, if not necessarily acceptance, to the very top of London's ton by using his gift for business and obsession for making money. At 31 years of age, he's a widower, an absentee father, and the head of a successful industrial empire. He is a ruthless businessman who is about to find his match in the most unlikely of women.

Catrin Jones is the Welsh daughter of a country pastor who served as a battlefield nurse for five years in the Crimean War. Her only claim to fame is that she was the only survivor when the HMS Honoria was wrecked while sailing home from the war and Catrin refuses to tell the real story. London is agog with speculation and William needs her story in order to further his latest business plans. William decides to seduce the story out of Catrin, but he doesn't expect that Catrin might have her own plans and might seduce more out of him.

This novella is character driven and as a result the focus is entirely on William and Catrin.

Catrin is the survivor of a horrible ship wreck that left only her alive. Now using her temporary fame she's out to find a husband and finally have a peaceful life.

Sir William Christie needs Catrin's story, the story that she so closely guards from everyone. So he plans to get it by seducing her. Only he has no idea how irresistible she is and how impossible it is to resist her.

Review
I am pleasantly surprised! I started this book knowing almost nothing about the series and the author and ended it LOVING them both. I plan to go back and read the first book now, because this little taste got me addicted! :) What a great story and for me at least pretty original. Though the book is pretty short it's not lacking details at all and the two main characters, William and Catrin, were very entertaining. I loved the banter between the two, they were made for each other. It's always nice to see a big man like William fall for a woman and boy did he fall.

I usually have some type of negative critique but I can't seem to find anything wrong with this one. Simply put, it's just a great read! Quick and fun and pretty sexy too! I don't know about anyone else but I want a big Scotsman just like William to sweep me off my feet too! ;)

I'm excited to read more of this series because if this short novella was this good then the full length novel much be fantastic. I give this book 4.5 Moons and I recommend it to romance lovers, especially historical romance. Now go Pre-Order, you won't regret it!

A Little More Scandal is a delightful sexy romp. If you are new to Carrie Lofty's story of the Christies this is a great introduction. A passionate story with page-turner pacing, A Little More Scandal will leave you breathless and aching for more of William Christie and cheering wildly for Catrin Jones a woman strong enough to handle his fiery love.

Catrin is an adventuresome Welsh girl that after a near-death experience has decided to embrace life to its fullest. She is determined to find a rich husband so she can continue the bright and colorful life that she is living as the darling of society. After acting as a nurse in the Crimea and then coming through a shipwreck as the only survivor, everyone wants her story, but she tantalizes them further by not giving it to them.

One of the many who want Catrin's story is William Christie. His motive is not for gossip's sake, but for the story's part in a lucrative business deal that he is arranging. William is a ruthless Scot who has pulled himself up out of the gutter to become a rich man. Society grudgingly accepts his presence, but they dare not refuse the fearsome man who holds the purse strings of the many extravagants of the aristocracy.

William plans to seduce the story out of Catrin and continue on business as usual. Catrin throws him for a loop. Not only does she see right through him, but instead of discouraging her, she shows herself eager for his attentions. Catrin's zest for life and William's desire to dominate the business world are seemingly at odds. William may have met his match and Catrin may have found the one man who is can match her need for a companion who fulfills her need to live to the fullest.

This was a novella so there was not a lot of space to allow for development of story. Carrie Lofty wisely kept the plot simple and it moved along just fine. There is an opportunity to get to know these truly well-written characters to see the conflict and passion develop and see what they do with it. The story touches on the historical backdrop without really dwelling on it.
