Grace Sinclair has been callously cast out of her home. And though taken in as an orphaned child by the vicar and his wife, her unsurpassed beauty makes it impossible for her to remain in the vicar's household—with two daughters of their own about to enter Society, the vicar and his wife see Grace as nothing but competition. Thankfully, Grace's estranged Aunt Bell has agreed to take her in to her home in London. But Grace soon learns her situation has just gotten much worse.
It takes only a moment's acquaintance for Grace to ascertain that her aunt has married a detestable rake. And Aunt Bell, recognizing the danger of having her lovely niece too near her husband, gives Grace an ultimatum: the young woman has two weeks to find a man to marry, after which she will be turned out. With no experience in the art of attracting a husband, Grace quickly realizes that a worthy suitor might not be so easy to ensnare.
A Proper Scandal is such a fun new take on a Regency Romance. Grace is such a cute, naive girl that is thrown into a precarious situation to save herself from the clutches of a slimy step-uncle. I like how Grace stumbles about in her attempt to ensnare a husband. Nate never sees her coming. Between her stunning looks and her innocent charm, Nate never stood a chance. This romance was a fun one to watch unfold, with witty dialogue and humorous situations throughout. There is an element of danger and going against social norms if caught, but nothing too nefarious. This story does keep you guessing as secrets are revealed and you keep wondering how in the world everything will be resolved. I loved how the hero in this story is a wealthy business man and not a member of nobility. This unique story-line is a very refreshing change in the world of Regency Romance.
