Leigh Michaels’ THE BIRTHDAY SCANDAL Review + Giveaway
There’s a new, hot little Historical in town you can’t miss! Happy release day to Leigh Michaels! THE BIRTHDAY SCANDAL is here! Tody I have a review of this book — sexy x 3 — and giveaway a paperback copy courtesy of Leigh!
First a little about the book…
The wealthy Duke of Weybridge knows that everyone loves a good surprise…and a good scandal. He has bounteous amounts of both for the guests—particularly for his nieces and nephew, Emily, Isabel, and Lucien—at his extravagant seventieth birthday ball. They think his promise to improve their lives means a generous stipend. But he’s got different gifts in mind: finding them the perfect matches. His task won’t be easy, because the Arden siblings have given up on love.
Bachelor Lucien spends more time merrymaking than looking for a proper wife. His sister Emily, broken-hearted when her betrothal ended in disgrace, committed herself to an early spinsterhood. And Isabel’s marriage has been troubled from the moment it began—with a terrible betrayal on her wedding night.
Though witty and strong-willed, the siblings are no match for their uncle’s wily machinations. And as the celebration approaches, his romantic scheming ignites illicit liaisons and irresistible temptations, sparking enough rumors to keep the ton abuzz until his next birthday.
Now…my opinion of THE BIRTHDAY SCANDAL
There is so much to love about Leigh Michaels’ writing. As I mentioned when I reviewed THE WEDDING AFFAIR, Leigh is amazingly talented at weaving multiple storylines into a book. I love this technique for quick pacing and constant intrigue.
Leigh excels at this again in THE BIRTHDAY SCANDAL, combining three romances into one book with the three main characters, Lucien, Emily and Isabel. Each character is complex and unique, each searching for their true love while trying to straighten out troublesome pasts to move on with their futures.
Leigh writes with humor and flair and heat (keep a glass of ice water with you at all times!), making THE BIRTHDAY SCANDAL a truly entertaining read.
Leigh Michaels is the author of nearly 100 books, including 80 contemporary novels, three historical romance novels, and more than a dozen non-fiction books.
