Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Shades of My Fair Lady color this farcical Regency from Britton (Seduced), which throws together two disparate characters, Charles Reinleigh Drummond Montgomery, the sixth earl of Sherborne, and Anna Brooks, a bright, ambitious market maid. Rein can't believe his ears when he hears the conditions of his uncle, the Duke of Wroxly's, will. But when he finds himself unceremoniously dumped in one of London's seediest slums, reality slowly sinks in. If he doesn't survive in the slum for a month without the benefit of money or connections, he will lose his inheritance. Before he has a chance to get his bearings, Anna accidentally conks him on the "knowledge box" with one of her many inventions. Rein seizes the opportunity to secure shelter with Anna, but he soon finds himself wanting more from the feisty young woman. Anna isn't immune to their attraction, but she's determined not to let it get in the way of her goal to design a sail worthy of Britain's naval fleet. A handful of minor characters like Anna's market friend, Molly, and her batty grandfather add color, but Britton's portrayal of the slums feels whitewashed, despite her occasional references to the city's mud and grime. But this is a fairy tale, after all, and as a fairy tale, it succeeds. Those looking for a fully fleshed-out romance, however, may find it lacking.

From Booklist

Charles Reinleigh Drummond Montgomery, sixth earl of Sherborne, who earned disfavor from his late uncle by accidentally running over the old man's vicious dog, is now heir to the family fortune. However, the will has one condition: Rein must live anonymously, and without financial aid, among the common people for one month. Orphaned Anna Rose Brooks lives with her grandfather, an eccentric, penniless inventor, and Rein literally falls head-over-heels for her when her kite crashes into his head. Feeling obligated to see to his wound, she takes him home, where he cleverly negotiates room and board. Rein soon discovers that her "kite" is really a unique sail designed to win the purse in a prestigious fastest boat contest, and he develops enormous admiration for her intelligence and ingenuity. Sexy and sensual, this Pygmalion-in-reverse story shows how, with the right woman, a selfish nobleman can become a genuinely nice person in spite of himself. As in Britton's other excellent books, this romance is laced with lots of humor. Shelley Mosley

More About the Author

I'm the thirty-something author of seventeen romance novels (with many more on the way) for such publishers as Avon Books, HarperCollins and AOL TimeWarner. Currently, I'm having a lot of fun writing about NASCAR for HQN books.

When not writing, believe it or not, I like to read. Since I find it hard to read within my own genre, I like to peruse mainstream fiction in my spare time. My favorite authors are Koontz, Corbin, and Marian Keyes.

I look forward to each and every book that she writes.

This was my first Regency book by Britton, and I must say she is as talented in this type of romance too.
Not Telling
She's a master at crafting a wonderful story with great characters and a compelling plot.

This was the first Pamela Britton book I read and she hooked me right away. I love stories the feature a female lead character who isn't of the same social class as the hero. (Think Cinderella). In my opinion Pamela Britton pulled this story off beautifully! I found myself laughing while I read this book and then crying in some places. After I finished I went and ordered two of her other books which I also loved. A new favorite author of mine and one I really recommend.

3.5 stars. I'm guessing that the Scandal is the fact that a Duke dares to marry below his station for those who are lost on the title. This was a good but not great book for reasons mention from another reviewer. Though I'm all for having flawed heroes and heroines, I can't get with a "Dumb" hero. Surely people make mistakes and that would have been fine had the author not remind me at almost every turn that Rein is stupid. Other than burn evidence, I wouldn't have thought him so. I would have thought that he'd done a dumb 'thing' but not that it was some character flaw. What woman in fantasy or reality wants a dumb man? Now, don't get me wrong, there are many of dumb folks among us, but the difference is they aren't aware that they are dumb. Sure, I know a few guys who don't like to be referred to as being dumb because someone in their past (Usually father) kept referring to them as such, but in this book, it just made me wonder why the heroine liked him. Rein could've just been spoiled and snobby and then was forced to change. But dumb does nothing for me. Plus, Rein not learning to do for himself was another serious character flaw. He should have gotten a job and pulled his weight. As it was, the heroine worked all day, came home to feed her grandfather and him, and then started having to please Rein at night. Sound familiar? It should...it's called REAL LIFE. Women read Historical Romances for the fantasy--to be taken away from real life. The middle of the book was hard to plow through, but it picked back up in the last act. Plus, I wasn't too sure about the murder being justified in this book. I was a little uncomfortable with it. What I liked about the book: Molly and Anna's relationship..as well as Anna and her grandfather's relationship. The scenes of testing sails on Rein's yacht and what follows afterward was the best scenes in the entire book. I will read more books by Ms. Britton, but please...no more 'dumb' heroes or heroines.

The typical regency novel depicts the male character as a rake and the female as a young woman with no original thoughts but just waiting on the sidelines for her hero and marriage.

Not so with Ms. Britton's works. Her women have strong character traits that can bring strength to a relationship. I can't imagine women of that period not using their brains. Throughout history there have been women who have ruled countries, saved lives, been instrumental in creating things that made life better... Women just didn't get intelligent within the last century. As to the hero, not all men are perfect. Rein has learning problems, which at that time would not be recognized as such. But he builds a strong character and with Anna help, becomes a better man and father.

Ms. Britton's spunky characters and plot are both interesting and quite believable. I look forward to each and every book that she writes.

I liked the premise, nobleman tossed into the world of the humble masses and forced to get by. I really liked that our hero struggled with his own feelings of inadequacy over his 'slow' mind. I thought that a hero with less than stellar opinions of his intellect was a really different and interesting character trait. I liked the heroine in general, though she didn't really stand out to me in anyway. The grandfather was also an enjoyable addition to to story. But somehow the ending just left me, well, dissatisfied.

If you've got spare room on your booklist, try it out.

What happens when a handsome rake gets booted out of a carriage and dropped into one of London's meanest slums?
Fun, fun, fun!!!
Let me tell you, Pamela Britton just keeps getting better and better. Her books are such a remarkable combination of emotion and humor. SCANDAL is no different.
Rein Drummond finds himself in the unique postion of having to earn his inheritance by surviving for a month in a slum. Enter Ann Brooks (a heroine who I think it one of the author's best). Brilliant and beautiful she's determined to escape St. Giles by winning a contest sponsored by the navy. When she meets up with the hero she thinks he's the last thing they need. But circumstances force them together and what follows is a beautifully written, wonderfully funny tale that had me thinking this author is hands down one of the best writers in the business today.
Hurry up and click the 'buy' button. You won't be disappointed!!

Having read Seduced and Tempted, I was dissapointed with the book. I didn't like the hero in this book, because he kept believing he was dumb. I was annoyed that he believed everything his classmates and father said about him. Come on! It wasn't him being dumb that made me annoyed but that he kept telling himself that he was dumb. I really don't believe the hero was dumb, because in the end, he found out who was trying to kill him. If he was dumb he wouldn't have figured that out. But why did he constantly, and even in the epilogue, kept telling himself that he was dumb?

Anyway, I also thought that the ending was abrupt. "Will you marry me?" That's all he says? No speech of declaring his love to her? No speech of declaring the heroine's love to him? Them coming together in the end was just so short. It wasn't anything spectacular as in some other romances out there.

If not for these two issues I would have given this book 5 stars. Yes, 3 stars to 5 stars is a big difference. But these minor issues in this book could have made this book great if they weren't there. This book was alright to read, but I wish that our hero was braver and tougher, and that the ending was more captivating. Now I really want to re-read Seduced and Tempted (also by Pamela Britton) because those books are absolutely wonderful (definitely way better than this book)!!!

P.S.
I just have to say that Pamela Britton is still one of my favorite romance authors!!!!!
