crept back into the home she lost. He’s crept into her heart.
Sophie Russell was once society’s darling. But after the disgrace and death of
her father, she now finds all doors firmly shut to her—including those of her
family home. To discover the secrets now hidden within its beloved walls,
she’ll pose as a cook and spy on the estate’s new owner, a broodingly handsome
viscount, who may have schemed against the Russells. Instead of dishing up the
truth, the viscount tempts Sophie with delicacies of his own…
Viscount Griffiths suspects that there is more to his new cook than meets the
eye—especially since it was a mistress he hired sight unseen, not a cook. With
the hope that her passion in the kitchen will extend to his bedchamber, he
humors the beautiful interloper. But when that passion burns to brightest love,
revelations may shake both of their wary hearts…
The final sensuous book in the Scandal at the House of Russell trilogy will lay
the truth bare.
Stuart. Period. My commitment to
this author will keep me reading whatever she publishes for as long as I
live. She has my devoted allegiance, and
she is single handedly responsible for some of my most pleasurable reading
experiences I’ve ever had. With that
being said, I am not a huge fan of this series.
In my opinion it lacks the mesmerizing heroes that many of her other
books feature. Because of this, I have
to admit that I went into this book not expecting much. Thankfully, Ms. Stuart managed to end this
series on a high note. I loved Never Marry A Viscount!
House of Russell series features three sisters who are
bound and determined to find the man who killed their father and took
everything from them. The two previous
books feature the eldest and middle sisters who both ended up falling for the
men who they were convinced were responsible for their father’s death. This book features the youngest daughter who
is destined to the same fate as her sisters.
and is much closer to the heroes written by Anne Stuart that I love the
most. He is sarcastic, alpha, at times
crabby, and ALWAYS sexy. The banter
between the strong-willed Sophie and the Viscount is witty and wild at
times. There is a hilarious mistaken
identity crisis in this book that had me laughing out loud. He thinks she is the prostitute that he has
“ordered” to service his needs. She
thinks that He thinks she’s the cook.
This misunderstanding creates some frustrating moments for our poor
viscount, and some confusing moments for our heroine.
characters are so smitten with one another that the highly anticipated love
scene is a huge payoff! No one can write
a love scene quite like Anne Stuart, and the love scenes in this book are alone
worth the time reading.
appropriately brings all the sisters and their now spouses back together in a
reunion that perfectly completes this series and ties up all the loose
ends. I finished this series happy and
satisfied, which in itself shows the talent and miraculous writing ability of
the incomparable Anne Stuart.
