He’s a rake, she’s not quite a spinster. Life is interesting when they’re together, but…

When her twin sister, Bridget, betrays Lady Mairin’s trust by marrying a man within the Great Family, Mairin determines she will find a suitable husband elsewhere, no matter what.

Iefan Davies, the family rakehell, who has rejected both the family and society, introduces Mairin to the Duke of Gascony, then teaches her to woo the duke. Between seduction lessons, Iefan shows her the world beyond the ton.

Neither considers the other suitable marriage material, for Mairin has a duke in her sights, while Iefan has no intention of curtailing his bachelor ways, although life is certainly interesting when they’re together.

Season of Denial is the seventh book in the Scandalous Scions series, which brings together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

A Sexy Historical Romance

Praise for the Scandalous Scions series:

If you are familiar with the previous series, I am sure you fell in love with the huge family like I did.

She is a go to author for me when I need a fix of historical romance.

Tracy Cooper-Posey takes us into the staid yet surprisingly bawdy Victorian Era where appearance is everything and secrets are held inside the family.

Thanks once again, Tracy Cooper-Posey, for giving us another great story and for giving me back my love of historical romances.

I love historical romances and this one filled all my likes, from a dashing, wonderful hero, a beautiful strong heroine, a love story to sigh over, side characters that are interesting, and funny, and move the story along.

I don't often give books five stars, but I really enjoyed the mystery that puzzled all of the characters in this story.

A wonderful story set in the Victorian era of such strict social conventions and yet the main characters are shimmering with latent sexual tension. What a fabulous juxtaposition!

Her husband will divorce her for adultery, no matter the cost or the ruin it will deliver.

Knowing their love was doomed, Jenny accepted the the Duke of Burscough’s pragmatic and loveless proposal of marriage to force Jack, Baron of Guestwick and heir to the Marquess of Laceby, to marry as his family wished.

Now Burscough is determined to divorce Jenny in an outrageously scandalous and public manner, while the newspapers paw over her secrets and speculate about her morals and values, as well as those of the family who raised her.

It is no longer simply a matter of whether Jack and Jenny can ever be happy together.  Now, the great family itself is under attack.  Can it survive the public disgrace?

Law of Attraction is the fifth book in the Scandalous Scions series, which brings together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

A Sexy Historical Romance

Praise for Law of Attraction:

Could not put it down. The author's attention to period detail is wonderful. You really do not have to "suspend reality" when you read her historical novels.

I was mystified right up until the end. That is truly an amazing feat for an author to do for me.

The Scandalous Scions series just keeps getting better and better with each book of the series.

Jack refused to ever marry as long as Jenny was alive even though she was married to someone else. Can you get any more tragically romantic than that?

Cooper-Posey has a gift for writing unpredictable plots.

I loved the story and couldn’t put it down. A villain should never get away with treachery! Thanks, Tracy!

The ending surprised me! No spoilers here but this is one of the best volumes yet.

Strongly written, it's so compelling that I found myself reading until the wee hours. I literally couldn't put it down!

This installment of the Great Family series was engaging on a new level of viscerally-induced reactions.

I love how the author writes, she has a way of pulling you right into the story, you pray for a good outcome and marvel about the ingenious way they find a solution in the end. More please!

Talk about being on the edge of your seat! The Great Family always takes care of its own but boy was I ever unsure!
