Your Scandalous Ways – Loretta Chase

Chase, Loretta. Your Scandalous Ways. (New York: Avon, 2008). ISBN – 9780061231247.

Main Characters: James Cardier and Francesca Bonnard

Date: 1820

Description from book:

James Cordier is all blue blook and entirely dangerous. He’s a master of disguise, a brilliant thief, a first-class lover – all for King and Country – and, by gad, he’s so weary of it. His last mission is to “acquire” a packet of incriminating letters from one notorious woman. Then he can return to London and meet sweet-natured heiresses – not adventuresses and fallen women.

Francesca Bonnard has weathered heartbreak, scorn and scandal. She’s independent, happy, and definitely fallen; and she’s learned that “gentlemen” are more trouble than they’re worth. She can also see that her wildly attractive new neighbor is bad news.

But as bad as James is, there are others far worse also searching for Francesca’s letters. And suddenly nothing is simple – especially the nearly incendiary chemistry between the two most jaded, sinful souls in Europe. And just as suddenly, risking everything may be worth the prize.

My Thoughts:

This isn’t the typical sort of romance that I like to read. I admit that I usually don’t enjoy stories with fallen heroines – and I also tend not to enjoy historicals set in Italy. I have no idea why, but I generally only read historical romances set in England. However, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I really liked the story. And, there was something very appealing about James and Francesca – and their relationship.

Read first June 2008
