Notorious rake and heir to the Marquess of Wolvington, Daniel Neville is in need of a bride, but finding a lady who’s willing to accept his past is an entirely different matter. When he spies a stunning woman across the ballroom, Daniel believes he’s found her . . . until scandal erupts around them. How can he convince Rebecca to take a chance on him . . . and on the love that could be theirs forever after?


THE SCANDAL IN KISSING AN HEIR by Sophie Barnes is an delightful Historical Romance set in 1817 England. #2 in “At the Kingsborough Ball, but can be read as a stand alone. This story seems to me to be based a bit on the story of  Rapunzel for Lady Rebecca is determined to find her own husband on her own terms,therefore, she has been pretending to be “mad” so her aunt and uncle wouldn’t force her into marriage. Enter, Daniel Neville, notorious rake and heir to the Marquis of Wolvington. Just one kiss as the story goes…..things get a little interesting, you see Rebecca sneaks out of the house with the help of her maid, to attend the famous Kingsborough Ball, and so it happens Daniel is there. A scandal is involved, he must get her to see reason and marry him even with his tainted past. Passion and love is a powerful thing. Beauty and wits, meets notorious rake with a past, one forbidden kiss and WOW a scandal erupts. A sensual, fun, quick  read with wit and engaging characters makes “The Scandal In Kissing An Heir” an enjoyable read. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Above the Treeline.
