    2. Isobel Carr “Ripe for Scandal” Sizzling and scandalous is what “Ripe for Scandal” by Isobel Carr delivers. I could not turn the pages fast enough reading this one! Beau and Gareth's intoxicating romance lights up the pages with fiery passion page after page. This book had it all.

    3. This is the first book by Isobel Carr that I've ever read, and I believe it will be the last. The book, as a whole, was just deplorable. I bought it with high hopes, but I absolutely could not stand Carr's writing. The characters lacked a certain depth that's typically established within the first few chapters of a novel. I'm the kind of person who enjoys siting down and reading a book all the way through, without stopping, but I actually had to put this book down-- and I rarely stop reading a b [...]

    4. So much better than book 1, the hero of book 1 is a villain in this book because he hasn't grown any from the last book where he was barely a hero. Still not fabulous but I'm giving it a 3 because of it's vast improvement. Only recomending if you just have to read Georgians and can't find anything else.

    10. 4.5 FeathersThis Review also posted at UTC Book BlogTrue to its name, this second installment for The League of Second Sons series is full of scandal, family entanglement, romance with steamy scenes, and suspense.

    13. This book was a lot better than I expected. With a cover to match it's title, Ripe for Scandal offers the reader a range of emotions not typical to the usual smutty historical romance fare as the main characters take on hardship after hardship in their already shaky marriage. I gave it three stars for diverting a bit from the formula of historical romance we are so used to. However, fans of this genre will still feel comfortable and familiar with the style and locales.

    14. I enjoyed this book. It was a quick read for me due to the fact that I couldn't put the book down. I found myself wanting to leave my class and just read my book. The characters were enjoyable and Jamie threw a good curve ball in the storyline. I still need to read the first book, and it's in my stack to read. I can't wait to start!

    15. strong female character. beau fought for what she wanted and refused to be kidnapped and made life a living hell for her captures. great villain to hate. as for gareth all i can say is yum. and both sets of parents were jerks, but ended up nicer than they were at first. can't wait for the next installment.

    16. Any which way she turned Beau was going to be scandalized. Why not take advantage of her predicament. Gareth had been in love with Beau since they were very young; he knew what he was getting into when he allowed Beau to carry on with her plan. I loved his pet name for her, I loved the plot and I loved getting to know the other characters which will be in other books.

    17. Lady Beau Vaughn has her sights on her brother’s best friend. Gareth wants her as well, but not at the cost of his friendship and reputation. However, the going gets interesting when Beau is kidnapped and Gareth is the only one close enough to rescue her.

    18. Like Gareth and Beau (should have had a better spelling) as a couple but Leo didn't match the character as written in his book. This was Beau getting her man and Gareth getting his HEA with the woman he has always loved.

    19. I really enjoyed this book. The conflict between Beau and Gareth. The twists and scandals. Cant go into detail or will spoil it. but I recommend this book

    20. Simply okay, which I hate saying about a book, but there's not enough here to compel me to continue with this series.

    21. I won this book.I loved this book! It was really nice! Full of romantic, a little mystery, and lots of scandal! I really recommend this book.

    22. I really liked this one. Lots of explicit scenes with doses of intrigue. How much can a man take? I feel for Gareth.
