Invitation to Scandal

Invitation to Scandal is my first Bronwen Evans romance, and I'm glad I didn't miss this sexy read! It's always great when the attraction between the characters is immediate and mutual and the sexual tension heats you up. Although Rufus doesn't know it, Rheda is an innocent and she completely melts when Rufus does little more than touch her. That keeps the reader delightfully on edge, if you know what I mean (ooh!). Rufus slowly unravels the mystery of the Dark Shadow through his own devious means, which adds an erotic blend to the story. I was glued to the pages and hated to see it end. Invitation to Scandal is not only a must read, but most definitely a keeper!

Upon her father's death, Rheda is left to care for her little brother with little to no money thanks to her good-for-nothing father. Trying to keep them from further debt and complete ruin, she's forced to the smuggling trade. Rufus is on a mission to find the Dark Shadow and he's sure he can seduce some vital information from Rheda.
