Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Elizabeth Ashburton had been running from her past for two years, but now it’s about to catch up with her with a vengeance. The minute Elizabeth spots Leland Pymm, now General Pymm, and his contingent of soldiers, she knows she has to escape. Unfortunately, the only person who can help Elizabeth is Rowland Manning, the last man on earth Elizabeth would ever wish to ask for a favor. Elizabeth thought she was a bad judge of character because it was the only thing that could explain how she could be so easily deceived by Leland. But it turns out Elizabeth is really better at judging a person’s real worth than she thought because she turns out to be the only one who sees Rowland for the man of honor he truly is. Expertly spiced with a deliciously subtle sense of wit, deftly seasoned with a superbly nuanced cast of characters, and featuring a plot brimming with lusciously sensual romance and a dash of dangerous intrigue, Secrets of a Scandalous Bride is Nash’s best book yet. --John Charles

“Graced with empathetic characters, emotional intricacy, and unexpected plot twists, this final book in the ‘Widows Club’ series ties up a variety of loose ends and is a perfectly delicious series finale.” (Library Journal (starred review) on Secrets of a Scandalous Bride)

A wonderful conclusion to a delightful series.
Diane Stewart
I felt like this book, since it was the final, focused way too much on everyone else and just seemed to tie everything up so nice and neat in the end.
Anne in VA
What I liked most is that Rowland is more of the anti-hero (especially in previous book where he was the villian).

I loved Sophia Nash's latest novel in her Widows Club Series. It was refreshing and a page turner. Elizabeth and Rowland, the hero and heroine of the novel capture your interest through out the novel. They are a couple that will do anything for each other's happiness. The plot centers around Elizabeth who is running away from an obssessed suitor who will do anything to marry her. Rowland helps her on a whim and the story keeps you glued to the book to see how the hero and heroine will get their happily ever after ending. I could not put the book down and read it in one night. You are really able to feel what the characters are experiencing and going through. You can't help but root for them. Elizabeth is a courageous heroine who believes in herself, her convictions and love while Rowland is an illegitimate son of a late Earl, who has scraped and schemed his way up the societal ranks. He does not believe he deserves happines and love. This novel is about how 2 people coming together and showing each other that love is never out of reach if you believe in it.

It was also fun to see all of the Widow club characters back and to see how their lives have progressed. We finally get to see the outcome of the infamous Ata and Mr. Brown romance. They definitely have their moments in the novel as they do not make their HEA easy. This is a standalone novel but if you are interested in the other novels they are listed below in order:

*Dangerous Beauty - Rosamunde's and Luc's story
*The Kiss - Georgiana's and Quinn's story
*Love with a Perfect Scoundrel - Grace's and Michael's story
*Novella - Four Dukes and a Devil - Victoria's and John's story
*Secrets of Scandalous Bride - Elizabeth's and Katherine's story

Happy Reading!

I tried for over a week, but I could not finish Secrets of a Scandalous Bride. Ms. Nash is obviously a talented writer, but Secrets of a Scandalous Bride hit all my hot buttons and I couldn't get past Chapter Three. Maybe it's because this is the fourth book in the series and there were things explained in previous books that I didn't catch on too. I don't know. But here are the reasons why I couldn't get past the third chapter.

Chapter One: The heroine is attending a wedding where the hero is escorting the bride down the aisle. The heroine is in hiding (in full view of polite society where anyone can find her) and she is found by someone she wants to avoid. She runs and hides and ends up in the hero's carriage. The hero arrives and then feels her up acting like she's his mistress so that the people after her are distracted. Nothing really wrong there you say. I didn't think so either. However, the heroine thanks the hero for his unorthodox help and asks to be dropped off somewhere. The hero tells her no. For some reason he's going to use her to get back to at the ton. His reasoning for this is very vague. He proceeds to ignore all her protests and kidnaps her while hurling insults at her the entire time. Not once does either of them attempt to act like human beings and sit down and have a conversation to discover why the men were after her.

Chapter Two: The heroine is locked in a nasty storeroom. Yet, despite being treated like a prisoner this is what she's thinking. Quote: "Oh, she should have been terrified, but for some absurd reason, she had not been." Umm, why not? What has he done, how has he treated you that made you come up with this thought. I personally didn't see one. Now she's made to go in the kitchen like she's a maid instead of a victim.

Really loved this book. Although it is the conclusion of a series, I was able to really enjoy the story without having read the previous books in the series.

Rowland and Elizabeth's story is wonderfully told by Sophia Nash. What I liked most is that Rowland is more of the anti-hero (especially in previous book where he was the villian). He is the bastard son of an Earl. He went out of his way to torment and persecute his half-brother, Michael, but in this story we see that he is really just a product of his circumstances. He was raised in a rookerey and is as described a chameleon. He is no gentleman at all until he meets Elizabeth. Elizabeth sees the haunted soul and falls in love with a man that she is warned off from everyone including his half brother. At the same time Elizabeth brings out the good that is hidden beneath the muck that he was raised in.

Trully a well written novel. For all those who love to root for the underdog, go out and buy this novel. In the end you might just fall in love with Rowland too.

This is the story of the redemption of a man without hope...a real villain...and an excellent example to other authors who try the same formula. Rowland Manning is a man without feeling, a man who tried to kill his brother and embezzle his sister-in-law. You'd think it would be hard to fall in love with him as a hero. But I did... The way Nash develops his character, explains why he behaves like he does, and then uncovers his feelings for Elizabeth is true romance. I could not put this book down...the tension and pathos was addictive. My only criticism as such is that it got a tad melodramatic toward the end, but I absolutely adored the relationship between Elizabeth and Rowland. The best recent release I have read in a while. NB: You don;t need to have read the previous books in the series but it helps.
