About Almost a Scandal
Bold, brazen, and beautiful, the Reckless Brides refuse to play by society’s rules of courtship. But—come hell or high water—they always get their man…
For generations, the Kents have served proudly with the British Royal Navy. So when her younger brother refuses to report for duty, Sally Kent slips into a uniform and takes his place—at least until he comes to his senses. Boldly climbing aboard the Audacious, Sally is as able-bodied as any sailor there. But one man is making her feel tantalizingly aware of the full-bodied woman beneath her navy blues…
Dedicated to his ship, sworn to his duty—and distractingly gorgeous—Lieutenant David Colyear sees through Sally’s charade, and he’s furious. But he must admit she’s the best midshipman on board—and a woman who tempts him like no other. With his own secrets to hide and his career at stake, Col agrees to keep her on. But can the passion they hide survive the perils of a battle at sea? Soon, their love and devotion will be put to the test…
I really enjoyed this book. Not only is it a romance, but a bit of adventure is in here too. I love reading books that are based on maritime culture and this one is just up that ally. It’s an exciting thrill ride though the seas.
Sally’s character is fun, interesting and everything you want in a main character, she is a modern women in the wrong time and that make her very likeable and relatable to a reader. Yet, even with that modern women comes the need for a man to stand up and be respectable. That is where the dashing David comes in and sweeps us all off our feet!
The story is interesting and travels to areas that many romance novels do not. It makes for a entertaining experience that makes you finish wanting more!
