I am really enjoying reading stories where the female characters are just as central to the canvas as the male ones. Within Scandal Takes the Stage, Eva Leigh constructed a character that is focused, brave and heroic. Maggie has her eye on the prize and will not be distracted by anyone or anything.
Cam's fascination with Maggie becomes an obsession. He sees there is something special about her.
I don't want to give away the story. What I will say is that being true to the heart is what I took away from this. The value of following your dreams can be rewarding.
Together they may create a scandal worthy of the stage, but can their love last after the final curtain falls…?
Successful playwright Maggie Delamere has no interest in the flirtations of noblemen like Cameron, Viscount Marwood. She once paid dearly for a moment of weakness…and vows to rebuff the wildly persistent—and irritatingly handsome—scoundrel at every turn. But when pressure to deliver a new play hampers her creativity, an invitation to use his country estate as a writer’s retreat is too tempting to resist....
For years, Cam has admired Maggie’s brilliant work and he can’t pass up the opportunity to discover if the beautiful, mysterious playwright is as passionate and clever as the words that flow from her quill. He’s never offered a lady his bed without being in it, but if it means loosening Maggie’s pen—and her inhibitions—he’ll do exactly that.
But soon Cam’s plans for seduction become a fight for Maggie’s heart. He’s more than the scandalous, carefree rake society believes him to be…and she’s the only woman who has ever noticed.
