Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only thing they are encouraged to pursue is an eligible bachelor. So, the headstrong Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret. Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .

SCANDALOUSLY YOURS

The eldest of the three Sloane sisters, Olivia is unafraid to question the boundaries of Society-even if it does frequently land her in trouble. Disdaining the glittery world of balls and courtship, Olivia prefers to spend her time writing fiery political essays under a pseudonym for London’s leading newspaper. But when her columns attract the attention of the oh-so-proper Earl of Wrexham, Olivia suddenly finds herself dancing on the razor’s edge of scandal. With the help of her sisters, she tries to stay one step ahead of trouble . . .

However, after a series of madcap misadventures, Wrexham, a former military hero who is fighting for social reform in Parliament, discovers Olivia’s secret. To her surprise, he proposes a temporary alliance to help win passage of his bill. Passion flares between them, but when a political enemy kidnaps the earl’s young son, they must make some dangerous decisions . . . and trust that love will conquer all.

MY THOUGHTS:
SCANDALOUSLY YOURS by Cara Elliott is a delightful Regency Historical Romance set in England. #1 in “The Hellions of High Street” trilogy and what a beginning!  This trilogy features three sisters, Olivia, Anna, and Caroline Sloane,who are considered “The Hellions of High Street”.
A deliciously new trilogy with engaging characters, witty dialogue,and passion beyond lust. Join Olivia Sloane, the eldest of the three Sloane sisters, and the Earl of Wrexham on a journey to the discovery of true love, passion,and an unconventional courtship. Wrexham, is a former military hero, who wants social reform in Parliament,especially for the returning Veterans. Olivia has the seem passion for social reform but she carries a secret or two. Olivia’s  father was a very unconventional father, he taught them things no young lady of the ton should know or hear about, much to their mother’s dislike. He was a world traveler.  Olivia and Wrexham form an alliance, for you see Olivia is outspoken, and considered a hellion of High Street, much to her mother’s dismay. Oh all three sisters have secrets, one writes romantic novels and the other writes poetry. Loved this story! I enjoyed seeing Olivia and  Wrexham coming together in body and mind. Oh there is a bit of suspense to go along with the passion and witty dialogue. Wrexham’s ten-year old son,Prescott, is hilarious as is his friend, Lucy who is eleven. Together, they are a bit of hellions themselves. A fun, entertaining story with a bit of danger toward the end. A must read. I look forward to seeing the next eldest sister, Anna’s adventures.  Ms. Elliott has done a wonderful job of mixing romance, with politics and passion. Well done indeed!
