Blog Tour: All's Fair in Love and Scandal by Caroline Linden
Douglas Bennet can't resist a good wager, especially not one that involves a beautiful woman. When a friend proposes an audacious plan to expose the most notorious woman in England, Douglas agrees at once. After all, it would be quite a coup to discover the true identity of Lady Constance, author of the infamous erotic serial scandalizing the ton, 50 Ways to Sin.
Madeline Wilde is used to being pursued. For years she's cultivated a reputation for being unattainable and mysterious, and for good reason: her livelihood depends on discretion. When Douglas turns his legendary charm on her, she dismisses him as just another rake. But he surprises her—instead of merely trying to seduce her, he becomes her friend…her confidant…and her lover. But can it really lead to happily-ever-after…or are they about to become the biggest scandal London has ever seen?
I haven't read any of the previous books in this series, but after this short one I can't wait to start the others!
While it follows the first two books I felt that I could still easily keep up and enjoy it so it can be read on its own as well.
The one sentence that made me want to read this was the fact that it's a mix betwen 50 shades and Jane Austen, from there I really couldn't wait to read it.
Steamy pamphlets called 50 ways to sin written by Lady Constance is making its way around London. Nobody knows who the author is other than that she must be part of society since her characters resemble people that they know.
Douglas Bennet is determined to out Lady Constance, he's sure it's Madeline Wilde. She's always there, but doesn't participate much and even refuses to dance. Douglas wagers that he can expose her and eager to win he spends more and more time with her, but before long they both can't deny the attraction between them.
I really enjoyed this book, I loved the setting it was in and the humor and it was very well written. Despite it not being long, the characters still had plenty of depth and the plot was well developed.
I'm eager to read more books in this universe and get more insight in he world.
Overall a great novella!
