Three schemes and a scandal is a rollicking good, laugh out loud Regency romance that will have readers everywhere entranced. If you couldn’t tell, I absolutely adored reading this novel. The story is very fast paced, and beautifully put together, and the characters are delightful and engaging. It is a novel that is an incredibly fun read, and one that will make readers laugh out loud more often than not. I certainly did. The novel is a perfect length to be read in a single sitting, and is easy enough to read to accomplish that. I do know there are other books in this collection, but not having read the other books, this novel can easily stand on its own or as part of a series. This novel is one that readers everywhere will love as much as I did.
