I have read both books in this series many years ago and recall that I liked the 2nd book in the series better and thought I much preferred Eleanor, the cousin, to Madeline, the duchess. And I have to say that impression still is correct. I just like the cousin's character better. She created 2 headstrong characters with Madeline and Gabriel, their relationship a volatile and therefore passionate one.

Now, being forced to marry a man she doesn’t know pales in comparison to the ordeal of facing Gabriel again, the man who betrayed her – Gabriel, the only man she ever loved.

Two best friends, Natalie and Madison, accidentally switch bodies after a crazy night of drinking.

Two exquisite cousins must exchange identities in a scandalous deception.

Madeline de Lacy, the duchess of Magnus, prides herself on being one of the most sensible young women in England, which is why she can't believe that, in a turn of the cards, her noble father has lost his entire estate -- and her! -- to a stranger.

On a mission to salvage her family fortune, she changes places with her cousin and companion, sending the meeker Eleanor to confront the man who had won Madeline's hand. Now, Madeline is free to enter the home of a notorious gambler, and pretends to be meek, humble, and competent with an iron. She is, of course, none of those things; she simply is resolved to win her family's fortune back. Just when she thinks matters can't get worse, she meets Gabriel Ansell, the earl of Campion, and they do. Horribly worse.

Four years ago, Madeline was engaged to Gabriel, and worshipped his arrogant kisses. Now, being forced to marry a man she doesn't know pales in comparison to the ordeal of facing Gabriel again, the man who betrayed her -- Gabriel, the only man she ever loved.

This is the second book I've read by this author. Luckily it wasn't the first one I read! The book was a complete disappointment for me. It started out promising which is what makes the ultimate decline all the more hard to take.

I was pretty excited by the premise of this book. I love, love, love second chance romances. I love seeing two people try to work out their issues enough to be together despite being burned once before. I don't love all second chance romance stories--some people are just better off apart--but I am drawn to the idea of them. So it was with regret that I concluded that this story just wasn't for me.

It wasn't the actual writing or even the storyline that made this one hard to read. It was the characters and their behavior. So I think opinions on this will vary widely. It all depends on if you like Madeline and Gabriel.

I really, really didn't like Madeline. At first she wasn't so bad, but the more I came to know her the more arrogant and spoiled she seemed. She had a lame father, I get that. I GET IT! But that didn't seem like a very good excuse for her to be the way she was. I didn't understand how Gabriel supposedly fell so in love with her when she was so managing and arrogant. She seemed to want a man who would be nothing more than arm candy. Gabriel couldn't stand it, so how did he see past it enough to fall in love with her in the beginning? No real explanation was ever made for why these people fell for each other. It seemed to be presented as animal magnetism and nothing else.

What was the deal with Gabriel and Madeline both being so hung up on her breaking her word when she broke their engagement? What if he had been a cheater or a beater? Would she have agonized over her stupid honor so much then? I doubt it. But because he's the hero I'm supposed to feel bad that she didn't go through with a marriage she didn't want anymore just because she said she'd marry him? I didn't. I just found it irritating.

Also, I didn't really understand why Madeline was cast in the wrong for the breakup. Gabriel chose to participate in an activity that he knew she hated. I don't care if he thought her loathing of it was unreasonable or not. They're her feelings regardless. The fact that he ignored her feelings and did what he wanted made him the one that needed to apologize, not her. I'm irritated that it was presented the other way around.

I was extremely irritated by the way everyone "Your Grace"-ed Madeline. She was not a duchess yet!!! She kept referring to herself as the duchess and everyone else kept calling her it too, but she WAS NOT A DUCHESS. Argh! Extremely irritating. Her father, the duke, wasn't even dead. Never have I seen it where the heirs are called by their future title before they actually inherit.

I was lucky I had read That Scandalous Evening first. I really enjoyed it and have high hopes for my future with this author. I've heard that the connected book, One Kiss From You, featuring Madeline's companion cousin, is a better read so I'll probably give it a try.

Madeline is a spoilt and petulant infant throughout, so much so that we really never get to see a relationhip between she and her ex Gabriel develop. It's like everything happened 4 years ago when they first slept together, so why bother making them fall in love. But pouting is not attractive in any romance heroine, any more than sexist alpha male posturing is for the hero. This book has far too much of both.
There is far too much crass and slapstick humour to give the book any sizzle at all.
The most thrilling romantic thing in the whole book is a massage using oil and then sex? Really. Use a bit of imagination here! Yawn.
If this is spicy, everyone in the universe must eat paper.
Gabriel leaves me neutral as a hero-he really doesn't have enough spine or personality to care about him one way or the other, and his motives for revenge also do not bode well for the couple.
Dodd was recommended as an author to me, but I have most definitely read better. This book has no real romance, just a pacy story line with lots of men running around wielding their weapons. Make of that sentence what you will!
The ending is a real disappointment, designed only to lead up to the next book in the series, and thus a real failure to tie up the loose ends in the novel and convince us this couple has a hope of being in love, or being in love for all time. A romance is about a couple falling in love. The sooner some so-called romance writers remember that, the better.

I liked the second story better. This was a good story too but I connect mostly with the telling of the second story.

I enjoyed the story line, but have to say.....weirdly....the first page of every new chapter was missing. A bit disconcerting
Modifyn
Cute story line - will see how the second one goes. Typical historical romance but I enjoyed the read - takes me away from my life for a bit!
Kupidon
Liked the story but the narrators voice was too squeaky for me.
Mananara
This is one of my favorite romance novels. A must read and also it's partner "One Kiss From You" .
I have these two in hard back as well as on Kindle and reread them from time to time.
I really enjoyed this book. Scandalous Again told the love story of Madeleine. If you want to read a great romance novel, pick up any one of Christina Dodd's books.
