Overview

True Love . . .

Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a singlesuitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal.She's had just about enough of being a respectablewallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking ona life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the onesdescribed in a popular scandalous book. When she meetsher brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke, it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

Is Worth a Little Scandal . . .

Tristan Burke doesn't want a wife, and one can't triflewith a friend's sister without risking marriage. Even more, Joan's the last sort of woman he would ever choose: droll, sharp-witted, and always unfashionably dressed.If only he could stop thinking about her mouth. Or whatshe might look like without those horrid clothes.Or the way he can only win an argument with her bykissing her senseless . . . even though that just makes himwant her more. But more could lead to a betrothal, which he fears--or does he?

Joan Bennet is a respectable young lady worried that she’ll never find a husband. She’s also addicted to a not-so-respectable publication called 50 Ways To Sin. When her brother’s cheerfully disreputable friend Tristan Burke becomes his houseguest, Tristan and Joan strike up a flirtation that neither of them expects to go anywhere. Of course, that’s before her parents have to leave town and her scandalous Aunt Evangeline comes to “chaperone.” Linden somehow makes the Regency romance feel new again with this warm, likeable novel. With less chaperoning, Joan and Tristan become closer, letting attraction take its course. The obstacles to their love are simple but real: curvy Joan doesn’t know how to love her body or dress to flatter it, and Tristan’s unhappy family life gives him good reasons to fear marriage. Yet the simplicity of Linden’s plot is its strength, making the romance feel real and natural and allowing her great skill at characterization to take the weight of the story. Joan and Tristan genuinely enjoy each other, and their chemistry is sparkling. A quiet gem. (Aug.)
