Celia St. Lys has risen above the secrets of her past and transformed herself into the most beautiful and gifted actress on the London stage.

In her game of feigned seduction, she may have finally met her match. In order to claim his inheritance, Lord Simon Ascot must find a proper bride. And there's certainly nothing proper about the fiery actress who's turning the head of every well-born man in London. As Simon and Celia resist both decorum and lust, they'll find there's pleasure to be had in wanting what they cannot have.

But when Patience and her twin, Prudence, arrive in London from Philadelphia to claim an inheritance, she discovers that she is now a Baroness.

She sets her cap at Max Purefoy, the future Duke of Sunderland - and, to Patience's dismay, the most seductive scoundrel she has ever met. Max has little interest in frivolous Prudence, but the outspoken, outrageously attractive Baroness intrigues him. When Prudence's plan to entrap Max almost ruins him, he seeks amends from Patience. She must become his wife. And he will settle for nothing less than making their union one of unrelenting, unending pleasure.

Praise for Tamara Lejeune and Simply Scandalous
"With its marvelously original characters, rich use of language, and deliciously outrageous and whimsical plot, Lejeune's debut is rare and resplendent."
Juliet Wayborn did not hesitate to avenge her brother's beating in a London alley, especially once she discovered the perpetrator was the notorious Geoffrey Swale. When opportunity arose, she got even. But humiliating Swale in public is a sin for which there is no forgiveness. For Swale is the sort of gentleman (and she uses that term loosely) who doesn't like to lose, a man who coldly vows to challenge her every move in her determination to ruin him. A man who is proving dangerously, unthinkably...seductive. Geoffrey Swale will not stand for being bested by the outrageous Miss Wayborn, nor accused of a crime he did not commit. If Juliet were a man, Swale would deliver a well-aimed punch...or two. But since she is quite unmistakably female, he does the next best thing. He kisses her. And then he kisses her again. Suddenly, Swale wants so much more than defeat from the woman who has openly declared war on him. He no longer cares about winning...he simply wants her surrender.
