On the night of the Parkhurst ball, someone had a scandalous tryst in the library. Was it Lord Canby, with the maid, on the divan? Or Miss Fairchild, with a rake, against the wall? Perhaps the butler did it. All Charlotte Highwood knows is this: it wasn't her. But rumors to the contrary are buzzing. Unless she can discover the lovers' true identity, she'll be forced to marry Piers Brandon, Lord Granville--the coldest, most arrogantly handsome gentleman she's ever had the misfortune to embrace. When it comes to emotion, the man hasn't got a clue. But as they set about finding the mystery lovers, Piers reveals a few secrets of his own. The oh-so-proper marquess can pick locks, land punches, tease with sly wit . . . and melt a woman's knees with a single kiss. The only thing he guards more fiercely than Charlotte's safety is the truth about his dark past. Their passion is intense. The danger is real. Soon Charlotte's feeling torn. Will she risk all to prove her innocence? Or surrender it to a man who's sworn to never love?… (mehr)

What I liked:
The writing is exquisite and the story keeps moving. The relationship feels very believable. The romance develops in time. The heroine's mother is a wonderful character.

What I didn't:
Some of the explanations near the end for the mystery didn't quite make sense to me. Also, Piers does something dangerous that seems like it would endanger the heroine, which is what he's been freaking out about. ( )

My audiobook does not have a picture on the cover - this cover perfectly embodies Lord Granville and Charlotte Highwood! Beautiful people! A very fun read and full of drama and twists. My gosh, what can one say about Tessa Dare – she's a tour de force! By coincidence and fortunately, I had read Book One of the Spindle Cove series, so I knew of Suzanna and Lord Granville's younger brother, Rafa, who 'star' in that book. And also one Castles Ever After book, Say Yes to the Marquess. ( )

Summary: Charlotte is visiting her friend at a house party. Her mother is also in attendance and keeps trying to get Charlotte married off. The man currently in her mothers sights is Piers. Charlotte meets Piers in the library to warn him about her mother. Another couple enters the library so Charlotte and Piers hide. The other couple proceeds to get romantic and are overheard. Unfortunately, Charlotte and Piers appear caught in a compromising position as the couple had managed to exit the room moments before discovery. Charlotte's mother insists the couple must become engaged and Piers agrees. Charlotte doesn't want to marry Piers and decides that if they can just find out who the actual romantic couple is then they can escape a potentially loveless marriage.

My rating:
4/5 stars

This is book 4 in the Castles Ever After Series and also part of the Spindle Cove series. I have read one other Spindle Cove book and all three of the previous Castles Ever After. I do feel like I would have understood this book better if I had read more of the Spindle Cove books.
I liked the idea of this being a crossover but I also felt it was difficult to follow certain aspects if you haven't read the other books. I would not recommend this as anyone's first read of Tessa Dare.

I am a huge fan of Tessa Dare. This book has all the humor and witty dialogue that make Tessa Dare books so fun to read. Every book I have read by this author, to date, has been a fun read and Do You Want to Start a Scandal was no exception. I really enjoyed my time with this book and these characters.

Also, Tessa Dare is phenomenal about writing bedroom scenes. They are just the right level of steamy but they aren't so graphic as to be distasteful (as sometimes happens with romance).

I didn't feel that Charlotte has the same depth as the other women in the Castles Ever After series which disappointed me. She felt young. I don't recall whether she was late teens or early twenty but I couldn't relate to her as well as the older more mature characters in the rest of the series.

I generally liked Piers. There were a few things that annoyed me with Piers such as his interest in Charlotte initially being just about her beauty. Also, a few things he does in the book were understandable but extreme ways of dealing with situations.

The mystery subplot ended in a way I found disappointing though it was very much in line with what one tends to expect from the historical romance genre.

Overall I loved the writing, had some issues with the characters, and wasn't in love with the plot. However, Tessa Dare is an incredible writer and I can't recommend her books enough. They are such a joy to read.

I don't think this is a good first Tessa Dare to pick up but I think it is nice if you have read Say Yes to the Marquess because it picks up on Piers story and I was glad to know what happened to him.

If you like romance I recommend Tessa Dare. So far I haven't read a single book by her that I really didn't like. ( )

“Don’t be alarmed,” she said, closing the door behind her. “I’ve come to save you.”
When you can't keep straight the names of Dare's books, an essay. (Ok not really)

So I knew I read this once, that I've read it twice makes so much sense on why I remembered so much. I literally just grabbed one off the library hoping it was what I needed, it turns out it's probably very close to one of my favorites, and never ever have I appreciated it more than I do when it's really one of the only things that's distracted me this week. Have I mentioned I don't think there's anything better than house party historicals?

Seeing that this is becoming one of my go to comfort reads, it's probably time to purchase it to leave Piers and Charlotte to someone else to fall in love with. Also, I'm just gonna bump it up bc I don't think reading something 3 times is a 4.

Solidly in the top quartile...

I read this a year ago, and hilariously, forgot a lot of it. Not that it wasn't memorable, but that my memory for books is THAT flimsy. I hadn't forgotten the dialogue though. Whew.

Original Review:

I maybe stayed up far too late loving every second of this delightful book. The dialogue and push and pull, the WONDERFUL heroine’s courage and demands for her own life. The broody yet fun hero’s actions were so sweet...I’m not sure why I’m not giving it a 5. It’s a 4.5 for me, and an really solid one. Maybe I’m just spoiled lately. ( )
