Editorial Reviews

Review

I like this author's style. True, she uses elements in Austen (the rejected suitor of Pride & Prejudice) and Heyer...but she does something fresh with them. A good read. - Regency Retro Reads --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Even a young lady as independent as Katharine Daltry had to admit she needed help. Alone, she could not defeat the notorious Countess Standen, who sought to make a love-besotted fool of young Tom Marchington, the bridegroom of Katharine's country cousin Elinor.
Katharine knew of just one person in London who could lure the Countess away from her cruel sport. That person was Lord Oliver Stonenden.
But Katharine dreaded to think what might be asked in return by this heartless and hatefully handsome aristocrat who, although he had the pick of society's beauties, perversely desired only her.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Seven years ago, Katherine Daltry followed her father and her fiance to India, eschewing the London society that had adored her. Now, both men are dead, and Katherine has returned, out of necessity, to stay with an old friend of her mother's.
Kat is basically hiding herself away, when her "country cousin" and said cousin's new husband show up and demand to be touted around society. Unfortunately for everyone, Tom Marchington is an idiot who is embarrasing the entire family by salivating all over the salacious Countess Standen. In desperation, Kat asks one of her former suitors, Lord Oliver Stonenden, to distract the Countess until the Marchingtons are called back to the country. What Kat doesn't know, though, is that Stonenden still desires her hand in marriage.
THE MARCHINGTON SCANDAL's plot is too twisted and meandering for its length, not to mention being pretty silly. However, my main complaint for the novel is that the attraction between the main characters is lukewarm to nonexistent. At the end of book, I had serious doubts that they loved each other at all, or that their marriage would be a happy one, and in a romance novel, that's a major deduction point. The writing was fine, and some parts of the novel were interesting, but THE MARCHINGTON SCANDAL fails in its main purpose: as a romance. Hence, I can only give it three stars, for being mildly entertaining.

This is pretty funny. A young married couple from up from the country to London, to enjoy the season. Unfortunately the young husband, who has been kept at home by his strict parents, goes wild when he hits the big city. The young couple have been entrusted to distant family members, who see a scandal in the making but can do little to forestall it. The young bride is weepy and concerned, but insists they must not contact the groom's family. Naturally there is a scandal, and naturally it ends, not without an uproar, but at least to everyone's satisfaction. A fun read

Jane Ashford never fails to tell a good story. She has been a" no brainer "for me for years. I'm not going to reveal the plot cause you can read the blurb. I'd just say this was well worth my money.
