Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath (Review)
Alright, in Lorraine's new series we follow the lives at these adults who happen to grow up as bastards. The first up is Mick, the oldest. He also finds out that he's the child of the Duke of Hedley. He grew up without the privilege of his Hedley's other son, all he wants to do is be claimed as a bastard. However, Hedley has no desire, so a plot of revenge ensue. Boy is there a lot of collateral damage, and one of them is Lady Aslyn Hastings. All Mick wants to do is seduce her away from the heir, but we starts to admire Aslyn. We see a problem happening, Mick has to make a decision on what is best: continue on the set course or let it go.
Oh my goodness, I really liked Beyond Scandal and Desire, and the title is so fitting. Lorraine does a pretty good job with this story, and we even see Mick's brothers and sisters. I look forward to the other story, especially Fancy. However, being the youngest we probably won't see who she marries for awhile. However, there are other interesting siblings. Mick and Aslyn is a wonderful story. Yes, you do need to be patient, because it's building to something big. Everything starts to make sense on why Aslyn is so shelter. Overall, it's a beautiful story.
