Synopsis: He is notorious.

Review: I though this book was cute, original, and it definitely made me smile on more than one occasion. I have not read the first book in this series yet but I think I will pick it up after this book. There were a few scenes in this book that had me scratching my head, but in a good way, I like when an author mixes it up and is not afraid to color outside the lines.

The one scene that had me scratching my head is when Julianna dresses up as something (not going to give it away) but I feel like someone (besides Simon) should have noticed...I mean, I feel like I would have. Anyway, I love the dynamic that Simon and Julianna have. They are pretty perfect together and the build up for thier relationship was entrancing and well timed.

I think that I will read the first book in this series and look out for some more by this author.

Lord Simon Roxbury is a godsend to gossip columnists everywhere. This notorious rake has recently been caught in an extremely compromising position by none other than The London Weekly's Lady of Distinction. Rumor also has it that Lord R received an ultimatum: be wed or be penniless.
She is scandalous.
As A Lady of Distinction, Lady Julianna Somerset typically reports on other people's scandals, but soon she finds herself embroiled in a very public battle with an irate Lord Roxbury—one that leaves her reputation in tatters and her position at The Weekly on the line.
Together they're... respectable?
With no other choice available, these two enemies unite in a marriage of convenience to rescue both their reputations and secure his fortune. With their rivals intent on revealing the charade, Lady Julianna and Lord Simon inevitably surrender to temptation. It may just be a love match after all . . .

  1. I haven't read any books by Maya Rodale but I am considering it. Usually I prefer romances to be on the darker side, but an orginal and witty one is great as well. I recently read Lord of Scoundrels and that was an original read for me. Thanks for the review.
