Secrets of a Scandalous Marriage by Valerie Bowman

So, I spent most of my day devouring Secrets of a Scandalous Marriage, which is the latest release from Valerie Bowman. Ever since reading Secrets of a Wedding Night, I have always hoped Medford would get his own story. Here's why: I normally tend to go for rakes in romance, but there was something different about Medford. He was just so lovable and needed his own happy ending. After reading Secrets of a Scandalous Marriage there is a bit more to Medford than meets the eye.

At the beginning the story Medford goes to Kate Townsende, Duchess of Markingham, to see if she would be willing to write her side of the story. After all she was about to go to trial for the murder of her husband. However, Kate wasn't going give her story up for nothing, but she wanted some amenities for her cooperation. One of them being turnover to a peer and staying with them instead of the Tower. You know what, I would prefer being in house arrest than being locked up in some dingy tower. Once Kate is in the custody of Medford, they start to get to know each other. Of course feelings start to bloom.

I love Medford. He is one of those good-hearted heroes that you just have to love. Plus, you have to love him, because he's dubbed Lord Perfect. However, you learn more about the reason for being Lord Perfect in the story, and you kind of feel bad for the guy. Don't get me wrong, he's a really decent guy. Then you have Kate, who never really aspired to be a Duchess, but thought she fell in love with a Duke at a young age. Yes a bit naïve, plus catching the eye of the duke was a huge deal for her family. Yet, Kate learned a hard lesson about love, which was kind of heart breaking. By the time she was locked away for murder, you could see her spirit being crush by the marriage.

Secrets of a Scandalous Marriage is a scandalizing good read that will have you laughing and crying. Well, at least did for me. Yes, you have perfect hero who starts to realize perfect isn't ideal and heroine who is a walking scandal. So, if you are looking for a perfect hero to become scandalize by association, you might want to read Secrets of a Scandalous Marriage.

Side note: It's better to read these stories in order.
