Delilah Marvelle

Cover ImageIf there is anything Tristan Adam Hargrove, fourth Marquis of Moreland, has learned to avoid, it’s scandal. For the dark and dashing lord is not only an honorable gentleman who would never seduce a woman for his own gain, he is also the author of How to Avoid a Scandal, the infamous red book that has swept like wildfire through the better part of London society.

When a raven-haired beauty arrives as his new neighbor, he knows better than to succumb to the desire he feels. He knows little about her—only that she is high born, a protégé of the Crown and completely unsuitable for the base passions he hides from the world. If only he had never glimpsed the vulnerable beauty one fateful night. If only her lips were not so ravishingly red. If only it were not already too late to save her and himself from the untamed passion he is about to unleash in the name of love.

“Ms. Marvelle never fails to create characters that are full of passion and wit.”
–The Long & Short of It

Author Delilah Marvelle writes historical romance with a twisted, scandalous flare. To be entered to win THE PERFECT SCANDAL, simply tell me:

What’s the last shockingly different historical romance you read?

    Sounds like a great book and I love the cover. I can’t think of any shockingly different historical romances I have read lately.

    For me my choice for HR would be Outlander by Diana Gabaldon 🙂 Outstanding in every way!!

    I loved The Marriage Ring by Cathy Maxwell. The Hero was a virgin and the heroine was experienced! That was a nice twist to the story.

    You know I don’t think I have read to be honest. Though I keep to certain historical authors of late, the ones that I have loved over the years before moving into paranormal.

    Anne Stuart’s The House of Rohan series! Great books!

    My best answer off the top of my head is Rememberance by Jude Deveraux. That thing about wrenched my heart out. And it spans all time periods so a lot of historical jumping as the main character travels backward and forward to discover the reason for her unlucky dabbles in love.

    That’s a great question and a tough one for me. Shocking in other genre, yes but in historical romance not many come to mind…but Brenda Joyce’s Captive had some shocking moments for me.

    Hmmm… shocking? Well… the beauty and the beast tale by Elosia James is pretty good. It’s different for sure…. but not sure if it qualifies as shocking…

    I recently read A Hint Of Wicked by Jennifer Haymore. It was a great read about a woman who married her husbands best friend after he died in war. Eight years later he walked back into their life. Great read and series!

    The last shockingly different historical novel I read was When Harry Met Sally by Kieran Kramer. A very different heroine, but it was delightful.

    I think that would have to be one in the Web series (I think The Devil’s Web) by Mary Balogh.

    Monica Burns ‘Pleasure Me’ was pretty hot & different with a Younger Man theme.

    The most shockingly different historical I read was Outlander. I thought it was a good book but also found it emotionally shocking.

    Hmmm… I can not think at the moment… it has been a few weeks since I was on a historical kick…

    I guess I would have to say “Siren’s Secret” and “Siren’s Song” by Trish Albright. Only because it was more of a historical adventure and the herioines were both really kick butt adventure seeking kind of women.

    I haven’t been reading many historicals lately. I’ve been on a paranormal streak. But I agree that Outlander was pretty intense.

    I’m rarely reading historical romance. The most shockingly historical I’d read is The Blades of The Rose by Zoe Archer. Mix historical with paranormal treat is ordinary, but move the place from English to Mongolia, Greece and Canada wilderness are amazing!

    I don’t remember the name, but I read one where the heroine gave her virginity without marriage.

    “Confessions of an Improper Bride” was shocking – lots of possible scandals in that one.

    My last was “The Wicked House of Rohan” by Anne Stuart… it’s a prequel to the Wicked series

    I have not read any shocking HR that I can think of, but it sounds like an real exiting book to read, please enter me in this draw.

    My first shocking historical was Sin by Sharon Page, a really great book but different

    My first romance novel, Bride of the Wind by Shannon Drake, would be a shocker… Although, I’ve read many with shock value, that one I will ALWAYS remember because it was my first… *blush*
