Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath (Review)

Okay, it's been a while since I last read a Lorraine Heath book, which is kind of crazy I love her books. She tends to be an auto-buy at the story. Then again it's those amazing covers. Anyway, I actually liked Beyond Scandal and Desire, even though it had a slow start. Boy did story start to get interesting when we started to see Mick Trewlove's revenge plan start to play out. I have to say there is a little twist, I didn't see coming towards the end. Lorraine does a pretty good job at adding this little twist.

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.
