THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING SCANDALOUS

Tale of Two Sisters #1

Kimberly Bell

Releasing July 25, 2017

Entangled Select

 
A horse race in trousers on Rotten Row.
Visiting a gaming hall in a dress that would make her mother faint. Sneaking an
invitation to a masquerade ball attended by only the wickedest, most debauched
members of society…

None of these things are scaring off bookish but
strong-willed Amelia Bishop’s stuffy, egotistical fiancé.

The only thing left is to entice childhood
friend Nicholas Wakefield into a truly engagement-ending scandal. The
Wakefields are the height of propriety, and Nicholas’s parents have made it
clear a wife from the neighboring Bishop family would be unacceptable…

But Nicholas would give up his family and his
fortune if Amelia would ever see him as more than just a childhood friend.
He’ll go along with her scheme, even if it means ruining them both, because
he’s got a plan that will change her mind about him being merely the boy next
door.

What is Amelia to do? She’s has a fiancé who boosts her family back into society after their fall from grace because of Amelia’s sister, Julia, had the gall to born with a physical impairment. Then the boy next estate over returns home from being on the continent and gives her all the tingly feelings she thought went away! Ditching the fiancé is not an easy task as for some unknown reason, he really really wants to marry Amelia. Amelia’s response – scheme with her sister to seem like the worst match ever.
The importance of Being Scandalous is a fun comedy romance of how to be as out there as possible in society in the 19th century.  I mean pants and straddling a horse to ride it is positively over the top! With a great cast of characters – Nicholas (Amelia’s true love), Jasper (Nicholas’ less than pious friend and heir to a dukedom), and Julia (Amelia’s sister) all help Amelia out in her scandals to find a way to leave behind her horrible-in-love-with-a-dead-woman fiancé.  I really hope the next book finds love with Jasper and Julia.  I soooo want Jasper and Julia to find themselves together despite never meeting in this book. While most of the book is pretty chaste, the last quarter of the book more than makes up for it.
Fall in love with the noble Nicholas and deliciously scheming Amelia!
