    In 1809 unmarried ladies weren t supposed to think about, much less sculpt, the male figure Why, the attention to detail a sculptor gives to the male physique even makes ME blush As That Scandalous Evening opens, our heroine has done just that Deep in the throes of unrequited, virginal love for Ransom Quincy, Marquess of Blackburn who is completely undeserving, I might add she has poured her heart and soul into a sculpture of her beloved This sculpture, of course, is never meant to be see In 1809 unmarried ladies weren t supposed to think about, much less sculpt, the male figure Why, the attention to detail a sculptor gives to the male physique even makes ME blush As That Scandalous Evening opens, our heroine has done just that Deep in the throes of unrequited, virginal love for Ransom Quincy, Marquess of Blackburn who is completely undeserving, I might add she has poured her heart and soul into a sculpture of her beloved This sculpture, of course, is never meant to be seen, but through a series of catty maneouvers it is unveiled at a ball attended by both the Hero and the heroine The ensuing scandal ruins Jane Higgenbothem and humiliates Blackburn beyond reparation.Cut to ten years later Jane reappears in London chaperoning her niece s first season Lord Blackburn has also returned to London injured in the battle of Talavera, he has been retained by the Foreign Office to ferret out a network of spies for Napoleon among the ton Time and circumstance have changed them both tremendously They meet again, sparks fly, and I sat back to enjoy watching it all play out.I really had fun reading this one I loved the premise and the main reason for the Marquess humiliation is absolutely hilarious Even when seeing the sculpture ten years later, Jane still has absolutely no idea what Ransom is so upset about She sees nothing but an example of her work, he view spoiler cannot believe she has given him such a small fig leaf, and that the entire ton believes it to be an accurate representation of his, um, endowment hide spoiler.There were some absolutely wonderful secondary characters in this romance, not the least of whom were Adora, Jane s charge and Blackburn s older sister Susan, Lady Goodridge The hint of romance between Susan and Fitz, her manner of speaking and her bon mots were so appealing it made me hope that she got her own book The intrigue angle is deftly handled All of Blackburn s intelligence is based on supposition and rumour, and in order to flush out the spy he must use every tool at his disposal, including Jane This means the dreaded Big Mis occurs, but thankfully the author doesn t make us suffer through it for very long An entertaining read by a new to me author witty, with an amusing take on the spinster bluestocking trope, sizzling scenes and a dash of intrigue I m off to look up Christina Dodd s backlist.4 stars

    This started off really strong, even despite some mild rapey vibes Angst, hatred, scandal, passion And then halfway through it just really, really lost the momentum and fizzled into endless passionate kissing and passionate sulking that wasn t following a clear logical, emotional structure The sex scenes were really cringe worthy But hey, I made it all the way to the end and must say the spy intrigue wasbelievable than the romance.

    I did enjoy the book but it was just okay.Some of my complaints are the current day language was a little out of place I really didn t feel the ending It was just lacking in emotion and was just like a quick wrap it up some of the other characters seemedinteresting than the main characters the main male character was not very likable for someone who suffered great public humiliation before, the main character certainly doesn t mind putting herself in danger again.A few things I did enjoy the book but it was just okay.Some of my complaints are the current day language was a little out of place I really didn t feel the ending It was just lacking in emotion and was just like a quick wrap it up some of the other characters seemedinteresting than the main characters the main male character was not very likable for someone who suffered great public humiliation before, the main character certainly doesn t mind putting herself in danger again.A few things I did like I liked the art angle I liked some of the details of the espionage the main female character was likableI ve read other similar books in the past that I liked

    I was looking forward to this, but the story lagged and the hero, hah the hero, needed a two by four upside the head Oooh, new category Plot Backstory is the heroine was having a mediocre season in part due to her desire to be an artist and in part she s in love with the high flying hero She knows she is not in his league, but is happy to adore from afar She is humiliated, as is he, when another sneaky deb unveils a statue, a nude statue, the heroine sculpted of the hero She is laughed out I was looking forward to this, but the story lagged and the hero, hah the hero, needed a two by four upside the head Oooh, new category Plot Backstory is the heroine was having a mediocre season in part due to her desire to be an artist and in part she s in love with the high flying hero She knows she is not in his league, but is happy to adore from afar She is humiliated, as is he, when another sneaky deb unveils a statue, a nude statue, the heroine sculpted of the hero She is laughed out of the ballroom The hero is furious view spoiler She goes to the hero s house to explain where she ends up in a terribly compromising position which the bastard does NOTHING about hide spoiler Game over.Present day, eleven years later, she is to accompany her ravishing niece to London The h dreads it.The H, in the meantime, was injured out of the war and has lowered himself to spying for England Sidetone spying was considered a scoundrel s game as it was without honor This book and others drive that little interesting factoid home. The H is less than pleased to see the h back in London, but decides to use it to his advantage He will stalk seduce woo her while the Ton watches in amusement as a screen for his spying, kind of Zorro deal but without the mask Wow, what a guy He ruins her the first time, and now he s really going to finish her off.Quite a few secondary characters rule that provide side plots that merge into the main story at a later date some dubious French aristocrats and tutors, a half Irish roguish BF of the H who hascharm than he knows what to do with, the H s commanding but fair older sister, an ex beau of the h s, and my fave, the seemingly vapid niece of the h Almost any of these deservedstory than were given especially the niece Despite her seeming..stupidity the niece has an understanding of the male psyche her aunt does not, provides a nice supporting role in one of the minor story threads and has an entertaining choice of fiancee at the end.Many elements of the story were 4 star worthy the spy story, the h s desire for and experience in art, interesting secondary characters, etc But the hero was a dud Vain, arrogant, and blatantly dismissive of the heroine s background, he has all the negative points of a Darcy without any of the charms, at least for me I will say he does a supreme grovel at the end, an on his knees grovel, but it wasn t enough for me

    I thought Ransom was a real jerk, and my opinion never wavered from that Jane should have moved to Paris to live her dream as an artist, but of course she got duped by a man with wayexperience than her, and fell in love My favorite reads are historical romances and this same scenario is in every book so I don t really know why it bothered me so much I m normally not so I am women hear me roar but this book really p d me off

    2.5 Dodd often has great concepts hooks, but I find her plotting to be rather silly and her character development all tell and no show Though this book got positive reviews elsewhere, I didn t think it much better than any of the others of hers I ve read Guess I m just not a fan of the excuse any plot character confusion, as long as it s funny type of romance
