"Amanda Mariel writes charming Victorian era romances with engaging characters. I can't wait for her next book."
            ~Meara Platt, bestselling, award winning historical romance author

"Scandalous Endeavors by Amanda Mariel is well written with good imagery that places you right there with Amelia as she goes through the ups and downs of losing her father, and potentially losing everything she knows. Her emotions are real as she wars with her conflicting feelings about being in mourning and falling in love."

Historical romance with sass, that is what Scandalous Endeavors offers. In a time when society dictates how people should behave, Lady Amelia finds herself forced to mourn in a way that could cost her everything. Amelia is a spirited and sassy heroine that sometimes behaves in a scandalous manner for the time, but who is still a true lady at heart, just a lady fighting for what her heart wants. This is a well written and fast paced read that still offers all the details and lush world to days gone by that historical romance readers will love. I read this book in one sitting as I just could not put it down. Definitely a 5 star rating and I look forward to reading more from this author!

Scandalous Endeavors is approximately one hundred forty pages long, available in eBook/Kindle format, written by debut author Amanda Marie. My first comment is with regard to the cover design selected by Amanda Marie; it is simply beautiful, and very appropriate for the content.

This story begins in 1842 London at the funeral of Amelia’s father. As expected, Amelia is devastated with this loss. As she is also very young, Amelia is now under the guardianship of Uncle Lewis, her only surviving relation. Conflict? Uncle Lewis is from America, having made the journey to England for his brother’s funeral. He has ordered Amelia to sail back to America and arranged for her to live on his plantation until she is old enough to make her own choices. Thus begins a tale of desperate schemes for Amelia to stay in her beloved England. The solution? Marriage. Time being of paramount importance, the only logical option is a marriage of convenience to any eligible bachelor. Although the entire story takes place in England, Amelia will bring to mind Scarlett O’Hara. Beautiful, privileged, spoiled, servants at her whim, you’ll find yourself torn between admiring her scheming ways and wanting to shake her for being such a self-centered brat :-). With a singular objective, Amelia devises one devious tactic following another to entrap a suitable mate. No spoilers, but a handsome rake will loom his gorgeous persona and turn her head.

Amanda Marie does a great job with 19th century cultural morays, in language choice, social picadillos, and environmental detail. The graceful manner of decorum is a fascinating insight, and it is well presented by Amanda. You’ll have no trouble turning the pages of this historical romance. Enjoy!

This This book is amazing!. The characters are awesome. The story line is sweet and fabulous!. Amelia is nineteen when her Father dies, and she is left with only one living relative her Uncle Lewis from America. Amelia lives in England in a time that Society's rule states she can not live alone at nineteen. Her Uncle Lewis informs her she must leave with him to go to America to live. Amelia does not want to leave England. So Amelia sets out to form a plan to stay with the help of two of her friends. Lady Grace and Amelia's best friend Sarah help her to extend her stay in England. Only Amelia knows the only way she can permanently stay in England is to find herself a husband. There is one problem though Amelia can not be courted till her period mourning is over. Thus Amelia's friends set out to get her compromised by Sarah's older Brother Lord Roseington. Lady Graces Nephew Lord Goldstone comes to stay with her and fouls up Amelia's plans not only that but she finds herself very attracted to Lord Goldstone but he is a Scottish Lord not an English one. What will Amelia do will she manage to entrap Lord Roseington or will the Scottish Lord win her heart?. If you love charming Historical Romances then you must get this book! It is really amazing! Amanda Mariel is a very talented Writer! and I look forward to reading more books by her in the near future!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I am a fan of hsitorical. I love getting lost in the Regacy of them. I love the corsets and dresses, balls, schemes and all that jazz. When I was asked to read this short 140 page novel, i jumped. To read of a girl scheming to get a husband so she can keep her title and stay in England vs go live in America with her distant Uncle made me giddy.

This book is about Amelia who is left without her parents. Both have died by the time she is 19. She cannot stay in England alone or that would be a SCANDAL so she must go to America. Well her and her bestie Sarah manage to get Lady Grace to chaperone Amelia until she can get a husband. She is going to force a SCANDAL on a Lord she has chosen to marry. Well as her and her friends are planning, in walks the Lady Grace's nephew. He is a HOTTIE but , darn, from Scotland. Tooo bad right? Uhm welllllllll, he might have heard the ladies scheming and has decided that Amelia might be the one for him????

I had a few giggles at Lord Goldstones attempt to ruin Amelias plans to trap a husband. I loved it. He is sooo funny and arrogant. Plus when he admits to ruining her plans, it infuriates her beyond imagine.

The two end up having to travel together and that is when things REALLY heat up. Amelia has fought her attraction to Richard. However she realizes she might LOVE and sets out to snare him as her husband!!!
