For as long as she can remember, beautiful Laurel deCourtney has loved Matthew Hughes and has always assumed the handsome landowner and consummate gentleman loves her in turn. But with her coming out now three years behind her, Laurel is starting to get a little anxious. Why hasn’t Matthew proposed? What is he waiting for?

With the theory that absence will make the heart grow fonder, Laurel journeys to Brighton for the summer. Thrilled when Matthew unexpectedly follows, her mood quickly turns when she realizes that a foolish bet she made with the caddish Lord Vedder during a high-stakes game of cards threatens her reputation and her future with Matthew.

Featuring an unforgettable cast of characters, A Touch of Scandal is a witty and sophisticated romp through Regency society.


Though a Minnesota native, Connie Brockway spent part of her childhood in Upstate New York before returning to Minnesota. She graduated from Macalester College with a BA in both English, with a creative writing core, and art history. She then pursued an MFA in creative writing at the University of Minnesota—and a medical student. After marrying, she and her husband moved to Syracuse, New York, for his residency before returning to Minnesota. Soon after the birth of their daughter, Brockway started writing, became a master gardener for the University of Minnesota’s extension office, sat on the board of the Minnesota Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and fostered dogs and cats for various rescue organizations—the groundwork for her daughter’s career; she is currently the director of an animal rescue, Secondhand Hounds. Today, as well as writing full-time, Brockway enjoys traveling, tennis, biking, fishing, and gardening; has taken tons of cooking classes; and has toyed with the idea of auditioning for MasterChef. She is a two-time recipient of the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award and a New York Times bestselling author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fresh & Charming! 5. Dezember 2013
Von Belle Morgan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Fantastic short story! I found it whimsical, charming and full of the trademark Brockway wit that I've come to expect and love. I've found StoryFront romance shorts to be around 50 pages or less - perhaps the previous reviewer was expecting more of a novella - but this was definitely sold as a short story and I don't know how Ms. Brockway could have written a better story in so many words! I do agree that $1.99 is a bit pricey. Highly recommended, despite the cost!

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Short Short Story 5. Dezember 2013
Von Linda D - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I generally like works by Connie Brockway, for she draws her characters well and plots interesting well written tales. Which is why this short story received two stars instead of one. This story revolves around neighbors who have always been destined to wed, as far as their village and families assume. Yet the hero is slow to act and in time honored tradition the heroine decides a bit of jealousy will move him along. Of course, using the character of a villain from several other books, this machination backfires and ... well, you know the formula. My objections to this work are: first, the length - a mere six chapters; second, the cost - many excellent full length Regencies can be had for the price or less; and third, the adherence to formula. I have come to expect Me. Brockway to expend the effort to make each story her own by going above and beyond hackneyed plots and injecting some creativity. Not here. This short story instead reads like a previously unpublished draft of a section of a full novel, or an early attempt. Perhaps I am most disappointed by an established author displaying her venality by tossing off a quick one close to the holidays simply because her readers will buy literally anything she publishes at this point. Another author going the way of Nora Roberts ... what a waste of a reputation.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Far from Brockway at her best 25. Januar 2015
Von lark - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Formulaic is the word, not typical of Ms. Brockway at all. The H is slow on the uptake and the h did something foolish.

I've enjoyed most of Ms. Brockway's work.....some are truly outstanding, THE SONGBIRD'S SEDUCTION and AS YOU DESIRE, to name only two. But this fell flat. This is just fluff, and not entertaining fluff at that. I didn't see the whimsy, the wit, or the humor...I wish I had. Instead, it lacked an imaginative plot and bored me.

I got this on Kindle unlimited, so I'm not mad about the price. But if I'd paid $1.99, I would have been. This author has some excellent titles out there but, in my opinion, this isn't one of them. Even though the story was short, it was a struggle to get through.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Short is good 4. März 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a short story, however that does not mean it is short on plot, good writing, or fun. You can read it anywhere, plus you know that it's not going to go off in different directions to make the story longer. Very good read.
