4 Stars for One Night Scandal by Christie Kelley!



SUMMARY: (taken from the author's site)



A Night With A MarquessBorn on the wrong side of the blanket, matchmaker Sophie Reynard understands the consequences of unbridled desire all too well. Despite the many highborn friends she has matched, falling in love with an aristocrat without a pedigree of her own would be an act of futility. But that doesn’t stop her from succumbing to one evening of anonymous passion…
A Lifetime Of Desire
Nicholas Tenbury, Marquess of Ancroft, knows nothing of Sophie’s lineage. He knows only that the enchanting beauty captured his heart in one night and then fled, leaving no trace of her identity. But when he seeks answers from London’s finest matchmaker, he finds none other than the woman herself—stubbornly refusing to acknowledge the attraction they share! Now the enamored Marquess has no choice but to sway Sophie with seduction…


SETTING:

The book begins in Venice and then continues in London.


WRITING:

This book was superbly written.  It's easy to follow and if it flows well for an easy read.

CHARACTERS:

The characters in this book are wonderful!  Since this is the 5th instalment in The Spinsters Club Series all the characters from the other books are brought together for a wonderful finally.
 
 Sophie Reynard is a medium who matches people and happened to match all the couples in the other books and she got her own story.  She's a caring woman who just wants to find a true love of her own. She also has a strong sense of family and it makes things difficult for her.
Nicholas Ancroft is a great hero who has a lot of charisma but is haunted by a past where his heart got broken a few too many times.  I had no problem seeing why a woman would fall in love with such a man.


LAST THOUGHTS:

I really enjoyed this book.  The characters were witty and fun and the circumstances in which they found themselves were believable.  I also found the love scenes not only hot but sensual.  You all know I don't like to give anything away in a book because it ruins all the great surprises. But, I will tell you that this book managed to suck me in and kept me guessing.
If your looking for a sweet, sensual, conundrum of a historical romance then this is just the story for you!
