ONE TOUCH OF SCANDAL
Avon Books, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers
Rating: 3 Cups
Grace Gauthier has lived her life knowing if men were of good disposition or not. She has always thought of it as a good sense of judgment and not much else.
Adrian, Lord Ruthveyn, belongs to a secret society whose sole purpose is to protect the innocents. Having a special gift allows him to find the truth, but leaves him with a sour taste in his mouth.
When Grace is found with her soon-to-be fiancé’s dead body, she becomes the prime suspect. While Adrian does not seem able to use his Gift to find out whether she is lying or not, there is something about the governess that calls to him. Wanting to discover the truth, Grace and Adrian must work together even as their passion interferes with their every breath and every waking need. Can Adrian find the truth before Grace’s time runs out?
What a delightful tale One Touch of Scandal turned out to be. I thought the way Ms. Carlyle starts the novel with the mysterious men and the baby just adds to the suspense and drama that surrounds The Guardians. On top of that you have all these other characters that you know have a story of their own to share and it keeps you hoping to read more of this intriguing and mystical society. I found the villain to be properly insane and hidden enough that when this person is revealed it leaves you with the overwhelming sensation of being hoodwinked. This book is quite nicely told and will have you waiting to see where this tale will lead you next.
