    I am laughing so hard as I think of this book and what to write Look I used to devour Amanda uick's older books with the one word description and usually a random object on the cover There were some that were really good And there were some that may be wonder about the intelligence of the heroheroine involved Scandal is definitely the latter You have a sort of reformed rake trope taking place here though the hero is not

    This book was a cracking good read I really enjoyed the push pull between the hero and heroine It was fun and engaging and I was completely immersed the very best kind of romanceThe tension created by the two different perspectives of Emily and Blade was well done and very entertaining She is naive and he is cynical and bent on revenge But uick inserts enough ambiguity into this dynamic that the heroine never i

    In all the Amanda uick books I have read s far this was a bit different I had some issues with the charactersBut as usual Amanda uick delivered yet another great bookOne of my biggest issues with the book was the main characters especially the heroine the only word that comes to mind when I think of Emily is Gullible Naivete doesn't even measure up in the story they make it seem that she only sees the good in people and even the main guy

    OMG how may times do I have to hear words Metaphysical transcendental or higher plane? Ugh It was getting on my nervesI couldn't finish the book it was so boring the characters were boring First you have Simon an emotionless cold hearted man that only thinks about getting revenge that he doesn't care who he ruins to achieve it Then you have Emily who is uite fankly boring All she talks about is having a love connection that is on a highe

With her reputation forever tarnished by a youthful indiscretion lovely Emily Faringdon is resigned to a life of spinsterhood until she embarks on an unusual correspondence and finds herself falling head over heels in love Sensitive intelligent and high minded her noble pen pal. I do not think I like Amanda uick s heroes either They re all so cool Marble Ice men Emotionless They NEVER give anything away to their heroines Can t crack a smile much less a joke This irks me BadlyAnd if I have to hear the words Metaphysical transcendental or higher plane one timethere will be explosive projectile vomiting The ending was the best part It s over now3 stars is a high rating But I suppose it is apt

Summary Scandal by Amanda Quick

Scandal by Amanda Quick

T Emilynever Emily For even as she surrenders to his seductive charms she knows the real reason for his amorous suit And she knows that she must reach the heart of this golden eyed dragon before the avenging demons of their entwined pasts destroy the only love she has ever know. Scandal is the story of Emily and SimonOur heroine is the youngest in the Faringdon clan and the smartest Taking care of the financial investments of her family and friends she spends her days lost in literary pursuits and is happy being a spinster The society shunned her after a minor youthful indiscretion but the ladies of her poetry club took her in She starts corresponding with a mysterious pen pal who then turns out to be the hero He enters her life instantly charming her and proposing marriage But the reason behind his haste is not love but vengeance Years ago the hero s family had been responsible for him being fatherless and destitute and now the mysterious Earl of Blade is out for revengeOk So I really like the smart heroine strong hero mystery tropes in Amanda uick books However this was one of the disappointing ones I think there was a dichotomy in the heroine s behavior and her thoughts On one hand she was this independent woman who was as intelligent as she was caring on the other hand she was impulsive and oblivious Her accepting the hero s proposal marrying him despite being aware of his intentions easily giving in coming up with utter hair brained schemes believing the man who tried to ruin her and her father are just a few examples of her simple mindedness I think her character seemed very disjointed The hero was a brooding ass who falls for the heroine has wild sex with her but keeps assuring himself that he s evil and heartlessNow that I have whined about the negatives here are the things I DID like were tolerable her whole obsession with hero and him being a dragon her loyalty towards those she loved which includes the hero and how protective she was about them the smoking hot lovemaking scenesThe whole metaphysical thing was absurd thoughThis was an average readSafe255

Seems to embody everything Emily has ever dreamed of in a man But Simon Augustus Traherne the mysterious Earl of Blade is not all that he seemsDriven by dark smoldering passions and a tragic secret buried deep within his soul Blade has all of London cowering at his feet but no. A few campy chuckling moments due to naive heroine but plot was weak My mind kept wanderingThis author has written many books under the names Jayne Ann Krentz Amanda uick and Jayne Castle She has a wonderful writing style and can make almost anything entertaining But I feel like she ran out of ideas as if she pulled the words charming eccentric naive romantic female out of a hat and tried to do something with it again Then she added brilliant business financial mind The positive was that I chuckled several times But the plot took away from enjoyment It consisted of two main ideas Simon takes action to cover up Emily s scandal from the past and Simon plans vengeance on some men The vengeance idea petered out It was not intriguingExamples of things that made me chuckle Freuently Emily says that she and Simon communicate on a metaphysical or transcendental planelevelrealm She says sex will be a wondrous transcendental experience for people like them She believed that Simon did not He just said what he thought she wanted to hearAnother Emily tells the footman to find a person from the criminal class to kidnap someone for her When she meets with that person she says are you a professional villain for hire The relationship between Simon and Emily happened too uickly not enough story about that He pretends to be interested in the same poetry and literature as she That is why she thinks they communicate on a higher plane But they meet and uickly marry There is no interesting push pull between themOne odd thing about Emily She was a financial genius in the stock and commodities markets making money for others think Warren Buffett To do that she needed knowledge about the competence of managers in companies and projects A little hard to believe she could have that knowledge when she lived in the country and her only social interaction was a lady s discussion group about romantic literature I don t mind suspending disbelief for a good story But this didn t work A better story would be seeing how Emily learned things in the markets and how she outsmarted other investors But that was not hereThe narrator Anne Flosnik was pretty good but her voices for men sounded weird I prefer Susan Duerden who is good with male voicesDATANarrative mode 3rd person Unabridged audiobook length 12 hrs and 5 mins Swearing language mild Sexual language mild Number of sex scenes 7 Setting early 1800s England Book copyright 1991 Genre regency romance
