Book Description

Rising star Carrie Lofty, author of Flawless and Starlight, continues her Christies family saga with A Little More Scandal, a sensual eBook novella featuring William Christie and the woman who steals his heart.

Self-made industrialist Sir William Christie tempts the scorn of London society by attempting to seduce Catrin Jones, a modest but opinionated battlefield nurse who earned notoriety after surviving a naval shipwreck. His ambition to secure her exclusive story is part of his latest business plan, while her intention is to marry well before her moment of fame expires. With respectability, wealth, and security at stake, they must decide whether love is worth embracing just a little more scandal...

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars for a quick fun read. May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot prequel to The Christies' series! 4.5 Stars May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

Since 2008, RITA-nominated and RT Reviewers' Choice-winning author Carrie Lofty has over twenty books to her name--or four names, to be precise. Her historical and paranormal romances from Pocket have been described as "nuanced and superbly realized" (The Chicago Tribune) and "sexy, brutal and somehow innocent" (All About Romance). Now Carrie is celebrating her first New Adult romance, BLUE NOTES featuring a shy piano prodigy and a New Orleans playboy shouldering his family''s crumbling empire.

With Lorelie Brown, the Katie Porter co-writing team has been honored with a Reviewers' Choice award for Best Erotic Ebook, and the first m/m nomination for RT's Book of the Year. Back-to-back releases of their La Femme Nakita-inspired "Boston Boys" series will begin in May from Samhain.

During her junior year abroad, Carrie lured an unsuspecting Englishman to the Midwest, where she's kept him a happy ex-pat for sixteen years. With two pre-teen daughters and a master's degree specializing in the Old West, Carrie is a movie buff, a former ballroom and bellydancer, and a woman in desperate need of a maid service.
