“A delightfully delicious debut that grips readers with the very first scene and doesn’t let go.

Watch for this newcomer to become a fan favorite.”—RT Book Reviews
“Anna Bradley pens a delectable Regency romp that will leave readers eager for more!”—Tracy Ann Warren
“Regency-era romance feels new and bright in Bradley’s delightful debut...Bradley’s quick wit and humor keep the story flowing smoothly...Alec’s siblings and Delia’s sisters will surely make the Sutherland Scandals series a pleasure to follow.”—Publishers Weekly

I am not good at summarizing a story, so I'll just say that I liked the characters, enjoyed the banter between them, felt the attraction and tension between them, and when the love scene (it was lovely, erotic, and emotional) between them finally occurred, you cared about them and their happiness.
I am just disappointed that I have to wait until August of 2016 for the next book, A Season of Ruin.
I truly enjoyed the book.
Delia's mother had jilted Alec's father many years ago to run off and marry a commoner. That was an embarrassment to the earl but Delia's parents were happy until their untimely deaths. The Earl of Sutherland, an austere, unfeeling man, subsequently married another.
Now, Delia and Lily are attending a house party at the Sutherland estate. Delia, still saddened by her parents' deaths and feeling that she and Lily don't fit in among aristocrats, is particularly concerned about their reception by the countess. The Countess of Sutherland is a lovely lady and is very kind to both sisters. Alec is another matter. He appears cold to many people and is obsessed with protecting his family...particularly "saving" Robyn from Delia.
Well, you know how it goes...best laid plans...
I look forward to reading more by this author.
Enoy your reading! :)
This is the story of Delia and Alec Sutherland.
I would easily give this more stars if I could... it was that good! This is the Historical Romance with the bad acting lead man who has the family to take care of and protect....and a rake. The heroine too has a family she is trying to take care of but is a loving person who tries to keep her self from falling for the hero. This took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that just showed me how much I had become attached to their story.
Delia and her sister a visiting friends that they had met in the country where they live. Delia nor any of her sister come to town because of their mother who made a scandal when she defied her parents and ran off to marry someone else that they felt was beneath her. Delia mother and father are now past. Delia and her sister think they will be safe from talk since the scandal their mother cause was so long ago and they won't be in London. But they are going to the house of the man they mother turned away from in favor of their father. That gentlemen his also died and now it it is just the adult children and the mother left.
Alec is the oldest son and knows of what happen with his father and Delia mother. Alec father was a very stern if not mean person and now Alec finds himself the head of the family. When he hears that his brother has taken an interest in Delia, Alex sets out to change that. Alec doesn't want his brother getting hurt by her. So Alec thinks to keep her busy by distracting her and keep his brother away from Delia.
But things doesn't always work out the way you think they will.

The story itself was very good. Ancient history: the heroine's mother dumped the hero's father and eloped with a commoner. They had 5 daughters and were very happy. Lord Carlisle, not a particularly nice man, married someone else and had 2 sons and 2 daughters.
Delia and Lily Somerset met Charlotte, Eleanor and Robyn Sutherland (the younger son) and became friends. They were invited to the Sutherland's house party where they met the eldest son, the current Lord Carlisle. I hate to write plot spoilers, especially with a very good complex story. I'll just say that I recommend this book and will be buying the next one.
