Pocket Star /Simon and Shuster
Rating: 5 Cups
The vicar’s sister, Thea Bainbridge, sees herself as plain and she wagers that most others see her that way too. Wishing for something more in her life besides just the same old thing, she stumbles upon a baby boy left in the manger at the church. He has a brooch hidden within his clothing bearing the insignia of Gabriel, Lord Morecombe. But when she confronts the lord she is in for a whirlwind of mystery.
Gabriel, Lord Morecombe, has bought a home in the country away from London. While enjoying a bachelor’s life with some of his friends, he never expected a woman to confront him about a young babe that she says is his. But he claims he is innocent and does recognize the brooch that came with the baby.
While the mystery of the babe deepens, Gabriel finds himself drawn to Thea and seems to find every excuse he can to be near her. Meanwhile, Thea is certain Gabriel is just passing time until he goes back to London. Why would he have anything to do with a plain spinster like her?
Sexy and Sweet! Thea and Gabriel are a perfect example of opposites attract. Candace Camp delivers another beautifully written story with just the right touch of mystery and a generous helping of a scandalous romance, which makes A Winter Scandal just the perfect read for Historical Romance fans.
