Ashley March

Cover ImageSebastian Madinger, the Earl of Wriothesly, thought he’d married the perfect woman-until a fatal accident revealed her betrayal with his best friend. After their deaths, Sebastian is determined to avoid a scandal for the sake of his son. But his best friend’s widow is just as determined to cast her mourning veil aside by hosting a party that will surely destroy both their reputations and expose all of his carefully kept secrets…

Leah George has carried the painful knowledge of her husband’s affair for almost a year. All she wants now is to enjoy her independence and make a new life for herself-even if that means being ostracized by the Society whose rules she was raised to obey. Now that the rumors are flying, there’s only one thing left for Sebastian to do: silence the scandal by enticing the improper widow into becoming a proper wife. But when it comes to matters of the heart, neither Sebastian nor Leah is prepared for the passion they discover in each other’s arms….

    I can’t remember the most scandalous book I’ve ever read right now but I’m pretty sure it was an erotic romance novel. 😉

    Women on Top, a collection of non-fiction shorts by Nancy Friday. It made me go “whoaaa.”

    Oh, ummm… I think it would be Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas or Jeweled by Anya Bast.

    Lora Leigh comes to mind when I think of scandalous!

    Wow that is hard. I think the best was Bella Andre’s Love Me. That was a HOT book! 😉

    Hmmm, most scandalous…well, the most recent one was Invitation to Ruin by Bronwen Evans, or Lord Ruin. Both of those books contained big scandals 🙂

    But if you are looking for a book that I found shockingly scandalous then it would have to be….the Taming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice….yeah, I totally didn’t realize what I was getting into when I picked up a used copy of the book. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

    hmm the closet thing that I’ve read that i would consider somewhat scandalous would be Emily Giffin books.

    The first book I recall is Joey W. Hill’s HONOR BOUND in the LACED WITH DESIRE anthology. My gut reaction was and is: OMG.

    When Harry Met Molly – by Kieran Kramer . Just because of the situation he puts her in. Very scandolous.

    probably something in the erotica genre.

    This one sounds pretty fun though!

    I am a big fan of covers and once bought a western romance because I liked the cover and the summary sounded good. Boy, did my chin drop and my eyes pop. I gave it to my sister-in-law to read and we both laughed about it. I didn’t learn to later that it was part of an erotic series.

    I can’t think of the most scandalous. But, I have read some erotic romance that were smoking hot.

    I remember in high school (back in 80’s) I read Sky O’Malley and found it to be amazingly shocking. While I had already been reading plenty of historical romances by then, that book had a whole lot more (in multiple ways) than anything I had read before (or for sometime after).

    Kresley cole’s books are up there for scandalous. They are so good I will lend them out but I want them back.

    something by Maya Banks….

    Scandalous as in causing a scandal according to the “ton”, or scandalous as in “OMG, that is scandalous!” ?

    The “ton” scandal is never ending with as many as I have read, but I will go with Love Only Once by Johanna Lindsey. Gotta love the book that brought us those Malorys!

    As far as OMG scandal – short of erotic, not sure. Maybe Jodi Redford’s That VooDoo You Do that I just finished last night. A witch having sex with a tiger shifter/familiar and a werewolf shifter/familiar in order to unlock her witch powers deep within? Pretty scandolous! 😉

    I suppose a banned book would be considered scandalous? Or maybe not since I’m not a child.

    I just finished “Confessions of an Improper Bride” in which the heroine has to impersonate her twin sister and marry said sister’s beau. That book had lots of scandals.

    i guess the most scandalous i’ve read are romantica romances where the sex scenes were extra hot.

  30. Ivy

    I’ve read a lot of erotica but I’d have to say The Story of O…

  31. Eva

    The ones that come to mind are Kate Pearce’s House of Pleasure series…wow talk about scandal!

    I read A LOT of scandalous books but I guess Maya Banks, Lora Leigh and Sarah McCarty’s books are all among my favorites and are ALL scandalous!;P

    Love the cover!

    Most scandalous book I’ve read? That’s a really hard question, but I guess I would have to go with Uncle Dominic’s Touch by Jenika Snow.

    BTW – that story was amazing! Definitely a recommended read for those that don’t mind a little taboo thrown in;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    when I was a teenager at my Catholic HS Forever by Judy Blume was banned and we managed to get a hold of a copy, at the time it was sooo scandalous for us that we all felt naughty reading it

    Hmmm… scandalous? I can’t think of anything… except that I first start reading romance when I was like 10 yrs old and everything seems scandalous to me back then…

    The most “scandalous” book I’ve read would be Eloisa James’ This Duchess of Mine. Really, all of her Desperate Duchesses were pretty scandalous, but a lot of fun.

  41. Ren Puspita
    September 6th, 2011 at 7:34 pm · Link

    I read so many erotica titles, lol. But I think the most scandalous book I’d read is Passion by Lisa Valdez. Hot from the first page, and I will never see Crystal Palace the same way again 😉

  42. Diane Sallans
    September 6th, 2011 at 7:50 pm · Link

    I’m not really sure what was the most scandalous, but Monica Burns ‘Pleasure Me’ is probably on the list (in a good way).

  43. Chelsea B.
    September 6th, 2011 at 8:20 pm · Link

    Would probably have to be Megan’s Mark by Lora Leigh 😎 Smokin’!

    I can’t remember the name but it was a short story where the hero blackmailed the woman to be his sex slave for a period of time. It was hot and the way it was written it was done well.

    The most scandalous and I don’t know if it’s because it was my first romance novel ever… and I remember Fabio being the cover model. And I’ve come across it from time to time. I’d like to have a copy again… It was Johanna Lindsey’s “Gentle Rogue”

    I tried reading MM some time ago and nearly fell off my chair when the story went into a “love” scene on like the second page. That is one genre I wont be trying again. The book in question was by Carol Lynne but I cannot remember the title.

    I think it was a Maya Banks novel.
