About this ebook

Gatecrashing a high-society wedding at Chateau Vauquelin wasn't Celeste's finest hour.

Although being caught by Nick, the sexiest best man she's ever met, has its perks…

Until he confiscates the hidden papers she was searching for—documents that might prove whether Madame Duval left Paris alive nearly ninety years ago, or if she was murdered by the previous owner.

With just six weeks to finalise his new hotel venture before heading back to the US, the last thing Nick needs is a battle with French bureaucracy. So it's ironic that he's withholding papers from the one woman in the city who has the connections he needs to solve his problems.

As Celeste digs further into the past, it becomes clear that the papers hold the key to more than Madame Duval's disappearance.

But the closer she gets to the truth, the more someone is determined to stop her—at any cost.


Scandalous Affairs sees a return to Chateau Vauquelin in this steamy romantic suspense featuring a sinfully sexy hero, a mysterious disappearance, and a shocking secret.

This is book five in The Tangled Hearts Series and it is Celeste and Nick's story. When Celeste gate crashed a wedding looking for answers and information to prove the disappearance of Madame Duval she wasn't expecting to get caught and have the documents that she needs taken from her but the more she digs to find out what happened the more she puts herself in danger. Nick only has a short time to finalise his new hotel venture in France but he wasn't expecting trouble from the one woman who he needs to complete and help him with his venture. I really enjoyed reading this book and in fact I have loved reading the whole series. There are twists and turns along with danger, secrets and it is action packed and all will be revealed in this romantic suspense book. Sara Claridge is a brilliant author and writer and she certainly knows how to keep her reader's attention and on the edge of their seats and I definitely recommend you read this book and others by her and you will not be disappointed. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
