Review Tour: The Lady Loves a Scandal by Christina McKnight (Review + Giveaway)

Title: The Lady Loves a Scandal
Author: Christina McKnight
Genre: Historical Romance, Regency
Release Date: May 22, 2018

Lady Sybil Anson thought she had it all. Even a match of the heart, despite so many London elite marrying for convenience. But the night before their betrothal was to become official, the love of her life vanished--with a hastily scrawled note and little more. She feared the worst as her heart ached for Gideon, and the scandal sheets simply made matters worse with their preposterous musings on the hows and whys of Viscount Galway's disappearance. Now, more than a year later, he's unexpectedly back, and Sybil will have her answers.

Many, many years ago, Gideon Lyndon made a grave mistake. One he's spent most of his adult life trying to rectify. And despite the progress made, the sacrifices were extensive and damaging. On the verge of repairing one misdeed, he finds himself faced with his greatest challenge yet: winning back the woman he has loved since the moment he met her. But after a year of silence, convincing his headstrong paramour to take him back will not be easy. Especially since he can't even explain why he left--not if he wants to keep her safe.

Originally published in IT STARTED WITH A WHISPER Anthology

4.5 Stars!

This was such a different, very enjoyable historical romance.

Lady Sybil can be described as resourceful and willful and it was a delight to meet her. I liked Gideon, too, even more so when I learned why he'd left Sybil without a word. While it was a wretched thing to do, at least he had a good reason. The chemistry between Sybil and Gideon was outstanding and I really liked that she didn't give in too soon when Gideon came back, he might have had a reasonable motive, but still, it didn't account for the scandal Sybil had to go through

I loved Charles, Gideon's friend, and even if I wasn't too sure about Sybil's brother, he was pretty nice there in the end.

The whole Lady X was a bit out there, but it helped move the plot along and set up the scenes. Plus, it was a great example of how the rumor mill worked in this particular era and how it could make or break a person.

I hadn't read any books by Ms. McKnight, but judging by how much I loved this book, which I found thoroughly enchanting, I'll have to check out her backlist.

Very recommendable!
