A Marriage Made in Scandal (Rescued from Ruin, #8) æ Ut fearful Danger This match may be combustible After a series of vicious murders brings suspicion to Holstoke’s door Eugenia risks everything to be his alibi The only rational remedy is to marry the minx before she generates another scandal Yet the dangers don’t end at the altar A poisonous enemy coils ever closer threatening the woman who awakens his soul How far will he go to protect her? That may be the greatest danger of al 355 Lady Eugenia Huxley is a touchy feely sort of girl and not one to suppress her impulses which is how she got herself caught up in a scandal a few years ago while indulging her curiosity with a handsome footman Phineas Brand the Earl of Holstoke on the other hand is a proper sort a serious and studious man who generally prefers plants and botanical studies to people except for the time 6 years ago when he was courting Genie's older sister who ended up choosing another man Holstoke had a horrific time growing up his mother not only lacked maternal affection but had a diabolically evil mind using her botanical knowledge to poison numerous people in her path including his own father He has had to fight for trust and respect among his peers after it became open knowledge that his mother was a mass murderer Running into Genie was not part of his plans to avoid further scandal She has not toned down her behaviour one bit since the infamous episode with the footman despite her exile from polite society She is still too opinionated too bold and too free and indiscriminate with her touches Genie in turn enjoys her current freedom too much knowing that her scandalous past has removed all expectations for her to secure a match She certainly has no interest in marrying a man who pursued her sister previously However after providing an alibi for Holstoke to protect him from suspicion of recent copy cat murders in the style of his mother they have no choice but to wed to avoid further aspersions on both their names The writing is good as expected from EB with some amusing dialogue and one liners Genie really needed to keep her hands to herself It was unseemly for any female in those days let alone the daughter of an earl to be so tactile with random men around her Even if her intentions were innocent they could at worst be misconstrued and at best cause awkwardness for the man in uestion I like Phineas I totally get his jealousy given Genie's propensity to gravitate towards male staff members and his tactical reorganisation of his staff to counteract this was uite sweet Her apprenticeship in a milliner shop was a bit of a stretch The crime subplot was also a tad over the top but it was all solid entertainment I guess the next story will be about his sister Hannah and Hawthorn the Bow Street runner Doc ´ Rescued from Ruin ☆ Elisa Braden
