5 #Review #Giveaway of Scandalously Yours (Hellions of High Street #1) by @CaraElliott_1

Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only thing they are encouraged to pursue is an eligible bachelor. So, the headstrong Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret. Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .

SCANDALOUSLY YOURS

The eldest of the three Sloane sisters, Olivia is unafraid to question the boundaries of Society-even if it does frequently land her in trouble. Disdaining the glittery world of balls and courtship, Olivia prefers to spend her time writing fiery political essays under a pseudonym for London's leading newspaper. But when her columns attract the attention of the oh-so-proper Earl of Wrexham, Olivia suddenly finds herself dancing on the razor's edge of scandal. With the help of her sisters, she tries to stay one step ahead of trouble . . .

However, after a series of madcap misadventures, Wrexham, a former military hero who is fighting for social reform in Parliament, discovers Olivia's secret. To her surprise, he proposes a temporary alliance to help win passage of his bill. Passion flares between them, but when a political enemy kidnaps the earl's young son, they must make some dangerous decisions . . . and trust that love will conquer all.
 About the Author

Biography

I started creating books at the age of five, or so my mother tells me. And she has the proof--a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses and bound with staples--to back up her claim. I have since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured my imagination ever since I opened the covers of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

I have a BA and an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and now work as the Creative Director of a lifestyle sporting magazine, a job which lets me combine my love of the printed word with my love of art. I'm very fortunate in that my work allows me to travel to interesting destinations around the world--however, my favorite spot is London, where the funky antique markets and used book stores offer a wealth of inspiration for my stories.



This one was yummy and I so have to get a finished copy of it.  These three sisters are wonderful and won't take no for an answer.  I really think that if some of these people would see us now they would prob drop dead.  From a time when it was scandalous to just show your ankles or be alone with a man if you were unwed. This wonderful historical romance brings us three sisters that want to do more than just get married.

It was a fun ride and I can't wait for the next one.  Fast paced and very Yummy.

Oh yeah, I could have been like them. I'd probably been more of a reader/librarian than writer, maybe given book talks during the afternoon teas :)

Yes, I would have been like these ladies. I really don't like to be told what to do, or what not to do. I do what I want to do...
