Genres: Adult, Entangled: Scandalous, Historical, Romance, Standalone



Lady Evie Chesterfield is a darling of the ton who refuses to become engaged. She’s been desperately in love with her brother’s friend, Richard Maitland, Marquess of Westfall, since forever. But the dark, dangerous marquess only sees her as a friend and refuses to marry any woman. When circumstances change and Evie has no choice but to take a husband, she decides to convince London’s most notorious gentleman to marry her by seducing the scoundrel.
Richard Maitland decided long ago that he wanted nothing to do with love. So when the gorgeous, off-limits Evie asks him for lessons in seduction, Richard knows he’s playing with fire. Despite Richard’s determination to protect her from his dastardly reputation, he is tested at every turn by his need for the infuriating, but enticing, Lady Evie. Before too long he is faced with making an impossible choice…

My Review:

It is a Regency romance enjoyable and interesting, although the historical setting is not perfect, the author deals with some social issues of that time such as poverty, orphanages, illegitimate children.
Lady Evie Chesterfield is in love with Richard, a friend of her brother, since she was sixteen, when he saved her from a combined marriage that she tremendously unwanted. But he doesn't want to engage, is deeply injured and no longer believes in love. He also finds out having a daughter from the woman who betrayed him. He knows that Evelyn will never accept this situation. When she discovers that he wants to get married to give a mother to his daughter, she can not afford it and invent a plan: she asks seduction lessons to Richard, how he will resist her?
The characters are believable and engaging. Evelyn is a sweet, kind, shy woman but for love she becomes a seductive, provocative and determined. Richard is very strong and stubborn, protective of women in his life, doing what he thinks right and doesn't care what society thinks about him.
It is the third in the series "Wedding by Scandal" but really does work well as a standalone - I had not read the previous books and still thoroughly enjoyed this one.
The writing was pleasant and flowed easily. The ending was perfect, sweet and romantic!



I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. I especially love romance and adore writing about people falling in love. I live a lot in the worlds I create and I actively speak to my characters (out loud). I have a warrior way “never give up on my dream.” When I am not writing, I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from Walking Dead, watching Japanese Anime and playing video games with my love. I also have a horrible weakness for Ice cream. 🙂
