Lord of Scandal

An outrageous Regency tale of passion, seduction and celebrity!

Men that your father warned you about…

“He was no good for any woman. As soon as he had met her he was planning how to leave her…”

Ben Hawksmoor is dangerous to know, a celebrity in the Regency firmament, a friend of Prinny, the lover of the most notorious courtesan in London and an all round scoundrel whose only aim in life is to make money and make sure he never returns to the gutters from which he came.

Catherine Fenton is an heiress, a nabob’s daughter whose only aim is to keep her unhappy family together and save her stepmother from disgrace.

When Ben and Catherine meet the sensual attraction between them is explosive. But when Ben compromises Catherine’s reputation and thinks to force her into marriage he discovers that the nabob’s daughter – and her fortune – are not going to fall into his arms without a fight.

Can a man
who has always believed that everything has a price…
who wantonly seduces a debutante for revenge…
who will never risk his heart…

…ever find true love? And does he deserve the one woman who can show him that some things in life are worth more than mere money?
