THE PERFECT SCANDAL
If 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.

Probably Prelude to a Scandal..deals w/ homosexuality, sexual addiction…
September 6th, 2011 at 5:28 pm · Link
I definitely haven’t read any shocking historical romance novels lately 😉 ➡

I love historical romence but never find shocking HR
Maybe someday ^^
September 6th, 2011 at 5:46 pm · Link
Love the pink on the cover!
The last shockingly different historical romance I read was Debutante by Elyse Mady… it was a menage 😉
Thanks for the giveaway!
September 6th, 2011 at 5:46 pm · Link
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.
September 6th, 2011 at 6:13 pm · Link
Anne Stuart’s The House of Rohan series! Great books!
September 6th, 2011 at 6:24 pm · Link
None that I can think of, actually! Just the classics 🙂
September 6th, 2011 at 6:29 pm · Link
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.
September 6th, 2011 at 6:58 pm · Link
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…
September 6th, 2011 at 7:02 pm · Link
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.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:36 pm · Link
I think that would have to be one in the Web series (I think The Devil’s Web) by Mary Balogh.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:40 pm · Link
Monica Burns ‘Pleasure Me’ was pretty hot & different with a Younger Man theme.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:44 pm · Link
Sorry – I’ve already got this book, so please exclude me from the drawing.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:44 pm · Link
i haven’t any shockingly different romance novels. i’m one of those people who like to stick to romance tropes i love.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:48 pm · Link
The most shockingly different historical I read was Outlander. I thought it was a good book but also found it emotionally shocking.
September 6th, 2011 at 7:58 pm · Link
Hmmm… I can not think at the moment… it has been a few weeks since I was on a historical kick…
September 6th, 2011 at 8:01 pm · Link
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.
September 6th, 2011 at 8:17 pm · Link
I haven’t been reading many historicals lately. I’ve been on a paranormal streak. But I agree that Outlander was pretty intense.
September 6th, 2011 at 8:21 pm · Link
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!
September 6th, 2011 at 8:55 pm · Link
I just started reading historical romance so I haven’t read anything shocking.
September 6th, 2011 at 9:00 pm · Link
id have to say behind the red door is the only one ever shocked me when i read it
September 6th, 2011 at 9:28 pm · Link
I don’t remember the name, but I read one where the heroine gave her virginity without marriage.
September 6th, 2011 at 9:42 pm · Link
“Confessions of an Improper Bride” was shocking – lots of possible scandals in that one.
September 6th, 2011 at 10:19 pm · Link
My last was “The Wicked House of Rohan” by Anne Stuart… it’s a prequel to the Wicked series
September 6th, 2011 at 11:17 pm · Link
so many HR i read, i still haven’t find any shockingly different HR. maybe i will find it from this book, count me 😆
September 6th, 2011 at 11:29 pm · Link
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.
September 6th, 2011 at 11:36 pm · Link
My first shocking historical was Sin by Sharon Page, a really great book but different
September 7th, 2011 at 12:05 am · Link
I can’t think of any that were shockingly different.
September 7th, 2011 at 12:50 am · Link
Touch of a Thief, which featured a lady who was also a fantastic jewel thief.
September 7th, 2011 at 4:49 am · Link
love the cover, beautifull..
hmmm… i can’t think any of it. i rarely read hr..
September 7th, 2011 at 5:08 am · Link
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*
September 7th, 2011 at 5:40 am · Link
The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie
September 7th, 2011 at 10:13 am · Link
Tracy Anne Warren’s New Book The Bed and the Bachelor!
I just loved it! Its Regency Romance!
September 7th, 2011 at 12:34 pm · Link
I don’t think I’ve read any shockingly different historicals or I can’t remember them…or they just don’t shock me at all haha
