Lord James Rutherford fights the inexorable demise of his bachelorhood with every sane bone in his body. But the single-minded pursuit of the delectable Missy Armstrong entering her fourth London Season proves his undoing. Just as he’s decided to risk the wrath of her brother—his friend—and right the wrong of their indiscretion, James discovers the consequences of a forgotten night of drunken passion has left yet another lady of ton compromised.


For Millicent ‘Missy’ Armstrong, being ruined by the man of her dreams is nothing to wring her hands and bury her face in her hands about. But when an offer of marriage isn’t immediately forthcoming, and whispers of James’s betrothal to another—and pending fatherhood—reaches her ears, there isn’t an acre of land on the Continent far enough on which to escape. Then, in an abrupt reversal, James is back on her doorstep with the offer she’d yearned to receive…two weeks and one woman too late.


In the face of her unwavering refusal, James launches a war to win back her passion, her trust, and her love. A war as ruthless as it is seductive. With the wounds of her heartbreak still fresh and raw, can he convince her that far from the second choice, she has always been the only choice for him?

About the author

A Whisper of Scandal (originally titled Sinful Surrender) is the first book Beverley ever wrote and she was lucky enough to have Hillary Sares pick it out of the slush pile. It was published in 2010 and the rest, as they say, is history.


She currently writes full-time, although she still utilizes her tech skills a lot. Her part-time work consists of cover and website design (designing covers is part of the author services she offers). She also manages Smitten by Books Reviews website and blog.


Beverley loves interacting with readers.
