Alas, Thomas is not the only one to have discovered Cat’s new whereabouts: a mysterious gunman takes a shot at her moments after Thomas arrives.

I loved Cat as the heroine and Tamvir as Thomas' other side. I truly wish that Antigone and Will would have made an appearance since I think Antigone would have appreciated the mare.
So glad I pre-ordered this book! I can see more stories with the children as they grow up too
The honorable Thomas Jellicoe cannot believe his eyes when he sees his beloved Cat-the Scottish beauty who nearly jeopardized his mission in India. Disguised as a horse trader from the bazars of the Punjab the British spy risked his life for one night of passion in her arms, but here and now - breaking all rules of decorum - one heated kiss ignites a flurry of gunfire for their enemies have followed them home and love is the greatest danger of all.
I really enjoyed reading Scandal in the night. I think it was written very well and kept me wanting more. The story line is great and had lots of action in it. It went into detail so much that I was able to imagine this story in my head.
There were a few lines in the book that I liked. The first one caught my eye and made me want to continue reading on to find out more and that was "Now, you'll tell me whatever price is correct for a transaction of this nature so this mountain devil doesn't take advantage of me." The second one made me laugh and that was " Our malefactor won't have a large sign hanging over his head saying I'm unusual pay attention to me."
Passion ignites again, after only one steamy kiss. As well as gunfire. It seems their enemies have found them and is out to collect a debt that they fell is long over due. A deliciously sexy story with suspense, mystery, with a blend of historical details as well as romance. A blend of intrigue and sexual desire. A not to miss story. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. With its charming, engaging characters and its blend of passion and intrigue,it all comes together smoothly and is an exciting read from the first page to the last page. A must read! Well done! I can hardly wait to see what Ms. Essex has in store for her readers next! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
HEAT RATING: HOT
REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
You do get a sense of the exotic here, and you can imagine India as the hero and heroine had experienced it. But the flashback story telling is seriously making this draaaaag. Halfway through the book and you realize you were told so much of the story but didn't quite feel the urgency. There is so much TELLING.
The flashbacks are not long intervals of time, by the way. They're about half a chapter to a full chapter, then you're back in the present where the story crawls. I can appreciate the author's skill in weaving back and forth in time, and she does it seamlessly, but to me, it's hard to fully invest in these characters whilst trying to untangle each lie or revelation the hero or heroine drops or, this one kills me, hints at.
Still Looking forward to more from this author. Hopefully there'll be more books like Almost A Scandal (the first in this series.)
