And there is one person whom he thinks holds this information — someone that goes by the name, Dark Shadow. This mysterious person is a smuggler who he thinks will lead him to a dangerous French spy who could tell Rufus what the real deal behind his father was.
Rufus has a small breakthrough when he comes across a woman who is pinned to a tree by a rum barrel. Knowing she is probably smuggling this in, if he can convince her to tell her the source of this barrel, that would lead him to a ring of smugglers who would hopefully have information on who the Dark Shadow really is.
The problem is Rheda Kerrich is not cooperative. She has no desire to tell this man any of her secrets, knowing her secrets could get her and other people into a lot of trouble. Rufus decides seduction is the best method to get Rheda to share her secrets.
But she has had her fair share of scandal, with rumors flying about that she lost her virtue with a prince, Sultan Hammed a while ago after he left her two beautiful horses.
These two butt head okay, and other body parts in a battle of who can be the most stubborn and most alluring. There is a lot happening in Invitation to Scandal. I enjoy the theme of smuggling and that Rheda has a lot of secrets to keep in relation to that. A lot of this book is Rufus all hot and horny for Rheda.
I mean, from the moment he sees her pinned against a tree, he is ready to take her. Rufus was once betrayed by a lady he loved, so he is cautious or should be! She basically owes him something for this service. Does she owe him sex at his whim? While this book has a lot of sexual overtones in it, I had a hard time believing in a romance between these two. They both were attracted to the other, but the sex has more of an angry feel to it. His mouth took hers in a bruising kiss. His tongue probed her tight lips, forcing his way in.
Rheda knew she deserved to be chastised. Or her. He had no idea who she really was. No idea that the rumors about her and the prince were false. She had never professed her innocence.
Now he was going to pay the price for her pride. She had to help him. She might even be able to hide her virginity from him; if she made it plain she welcomed her ravishment.
And even though Rheda wants it, Rufus thinks he is having sex with someone that is not a virgin. She has to help him what? Help him make himself feel better once he learns she is a virgin? It was hard for me to find this scene romantic. Also in this story is a villain who you meet towards the end. He is very icky. The HEA at the end felt more like two people who enjoy good sex, rather than two people who love each other.
I needed more romance time with these two. But this book does have a lot of action to keep the pace moving,. Your email address will not be published.

Invitation to Scandal
Review: Invitation to Scandal by Bronwen Evans
Experience has taught Emily Shaw that men are best avoided, so she's determined to take her place in society alone and unrestrained by marriage. Renting a room in the heart of London, she establishes a Women's League to promote equality between the sexes and teach women to be independent. Jasper St David isn't looking for distractions, but he's fascinated by beautiful, fiercely opinionated Emily when she moves into the office above his. And when he learns of her determination never to succumb to male charms, he can't help but see it as a challenge! After all, Jasper's always found nothing more tantalising than the thrill of the chase. Defying the Earl 2. Undone by His Kiss 3.
