About this ebook

For fans of funny, sexy banter and steamy hot regency romance who like to laugh out loud. DO NOT BUY if offended by bawdy humor!  

Sparks—and stockings—fly when an interview for a husband turns into a game of forfeits, and a scandalous lady and one handsome rogue learn how very right they are for each other.

All of London is ablaze with rumors about the identity of the female brazen—and desperate—enough to advertise for a husband.

Zeus Tanner, a self-made man full of pride if not pedigree, answers the ad, vastly curious about the property alluded to by the mysterious Lady Scandal. He may not care about winning the lady, but he certainly wants her lands.

After a miserable arranged marriage, newly widowed Juliet determines she’ll not be married off again without having her say. Shielding her identity, she braves deciding her own fate. What she never expects is the sizzling encounter that happens when she meets applicant twenty-four...

Lady Scandal is a fun and super sexy Regency-styled Historical Romance written using period-appropriate slang (known as cant) and words common during the early 1800s. Zeus, Juliet (and Larissa, of course) bid you “Sparkish fine reading”.

Larissa writes sexy, steamy Regency romance, blending heartfelt emotion with doses of laugh-out-loud humor. Her heroes are strong men with a weakness for the right woman.

When Lady Juliet Letheridge’s father wants to arrange a marriage for her after the death of her husband, the headstrong young lady decides to handle the situation herself. Her last arranged marriage had been dreadful! So this time around, she will take care of the matter on her own. She does have sense enough to hide her identity, but she shocks London by actually advertising for a husband! That just isn’t done! Zeus Tanner, a handsome rogue, answers the ad in the hope of getting his hands on some property hinted at in the ad. A wife is not the goal, but obtaining the property could turn out to be the rightful restoration of his stolen birthright. The details of the interview will be quite fascinating to the reader as Lady Juliet “examines his credentials” up close and personal! It is highly unlikely the reader has come across a story like this one, but keep an open mind and prepare to laugh out loud at this strange situation that unfolds before us. Keep it all in the spirit of fun and you will enjoy what you read.

A destitute widow advertises for a husband with money to restore her estates and attributes no lady should ask for in references. She has her reasons and only a man smart enough to accept them will win the prize. Applicant number twenty-four has the right answers and references, but has secrets that could end his interview. Together they may have the right fit. A very provocative book with a lot of heat. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
