The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man he seeks, he’s convinced he’s been betrayed.

Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett’s powerful pull on her heart? Or the heady temptation of his stolen-and sizzling-kisses? Scandal has followed the duke since the war. Now the greatest shock of all is on its way-the one that can separate Garrett and Kate forever.

My Thoughts ...
There's not much Kate has going for her.. that is until very recently. At a private and secluded place she's found that paradise comes in all shapes and sizes.. And by golly she's going to enjoy as much as she can. For a few days she's been 'spying' on one of the most beautiful man she's ever laid eyes on.

Garrett has also found the scenery and seclusion peaceful and relaxing. He's on a mission to rescue his wayward younger sister unaware that he has captured the eyes of Kate.

At their first is anything but normal and dare I say unique and exciting. Within moments Garrett finds himself deeply intrigued by Kat e and manages a few stolen caresses and kisses. Neither know of each other's true identity.

Unbeknown to both Garrett and Kate, there are outside forces working to keep them apart be any means necessary.

Kate is protective of her family especially her younger brother Reggie.

She has no clue what her older brother is truly like and what he has in store for Garrett and herself.

Garrett know exactly what he is facing but he first get Kate to realize how dangerous her older brother is and what he is capable of.

I just received this today and once again, I found myself under the spell of yet another addicting novel.

'A Touch of Scandal' is downright sinful, intriguing and so easy to fall in love with the characters of this book. Just when I thought it the drama, heartache and suspense was over for Kate and Garrett…bam…another obstacle is thrown at them.

I do not believe all the hell Kate and Garrett go through hurts the storyline or characters at all. Especially the hell Ms. Haymore puts her characters through.. Especially two particular character that are such a bitches to certain characters. Readers will know whom I am talking about once they “A Touch of Scandal’ for themselves.

'A Touch of Scandal' has manage to do what other historical romances have rarely do in this genre.. It has simply enticed me with its wicked charming tale of riveting tale of a long forgotten romance. And one last thing....There is a hell of lot more going on beside the lovetorn lovers of Garrett and Kate to keep many readers eyes glued to the book until the very end.

Kudos to Jennifer Haymore for her ravishing piece of work she has done with ‘A Touch of Scandal.’

I rate ‘A Touch of Scandal’ a 4 out 4 Star rating
