Book Description

Carter O'Neill has risen above the reputation of his notorious family—thanks to hard work and distance. Now he's this close to getting everything he wants. Then Zoe Madison interrupts his community meeting with the announcement she's pregnant. In the media storm that follows, no one wants to hear that the baby isn't his. As for believing he doesn't even know her…forget about it! The only way to control this story is for Carter and Zoe to fake a relationship until the attention passes.

Thing is, Carter discovers he really does like Zoe. In a forever kind of way. Too bad she's not as eager to share his public life. So he'll simply have to convince her he's worth the risk. This could be his toughest campaign yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, funny, sexy read about an unlikely couple August 29, 2011
By K.K.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I discovered this author when I picked up a book with three Christmas novellas including one by a favorite writer. All three stories were good, but the one by Molly O'Keefe was SO good that I started looking for her novels. I've been working my way through her backlist, and I've loved every one of her books that I've read so far.

The Scandal and Carter O'Neill is the last in a 3-book series about the Notorious O'Neill family. It's about the older brother who left the family in smalltown Louisiana to go off and make something of himself.

Carter O'Neill is like most romance heroes - he's tall, slim, nicely built, and powerful, your typical alpha male. But he's also a politician who is plagued by scandal. The scandals stem from two sources - his shady family and past, and a false claim that he got a woman pregnant and abandoned her, an accusation made publicly by the pregnant woman, Zoe Madison, for her own quirky reasons.

Carter decides to quell the scandal by pretending to date Zoe, even though they have nothing in common. He's a brooding and powerful public figure, and she's an offbeat, elf-like free spirit. As unlikely a couple as they make, you can't help rooting for them. Everything she does seems to bring public humiliation and the scandal down on his head. And by the end of the novel, when his career has come completely apart and he's left with nothing but the ruins of his reputation and Zoe, both Carter and the reader realize it's the best thing that ever could have happened to him.

This seems like tricky subject matter to tackle, but O'Keefe does it realistically, and beautifully. She handles both the passion and the humor with a deft touch, and I couldn't set the book down.
