Wonderful book! Best one I've read by Amanda Quick. In a couple of spots the heroine gets close to being TSTL, but then the author has her do something absolutely brilliant and restores one's belief in her and the story.
I'd actually decided to give Amanda Quick's books a complete pass after encountering a couple of duds, repetitive plots and one that I threw against the wall because the heroine was a complete ditz. However, this one (Scandal) appears on a couple of Best Romance Ever-type lists, so I decided to pick it up when I saw it at my local flea market. Don't regret doing so one bit ;-)
