The wrong moments and thwarting her carefully laid plans to ensnare a suitable husband Sparks fly as the pair find themselves at odds with each other and drawn to each other at the same time Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion? Is it strong enough to make Lady Amelia give up her English home after all? Or will Lady Amelia find a suitable English lord and avoid social exile in America? Time is running o Scandalous Endeavors by Amanda Marie was a pleasant read The beginning was a bit slow in pace but I really started getting involved when the love interest was introduced He's every bit the kind of man I like in my romance There isn't much given away about who he is other than his dukedom and where he lives He generally seems like the kind of guy who waits for good opportunities to enjoy his prey and I very much believe Amelia was his prey Despite his mystery I think he's a good match for the protagonist Amelia They have good dialogue when they are around each other which really sucked me into the storyAmelia as a character seems mostly well rounded She's strong willed which is something I truly enjoy in female lead characters She wasn't a damsel in distress kind of woman which made this a better read Though there were times I did wonder about her age due to how she rolled her eyes much like a teenager would or running off when she's upset though in the book she is said to be two years away from one and twenty which is majority age Her search for a husband truly lands her in a few interesting predicaments and they don't go as expected The pain she feels over the loss of her parents came across very real for me as a readerThe plot as a whole while it seemed like it has been used before the author carefully calculated some great twists in the whole idea of trapping a husband Which I don't intend to get into because I don't want to spoil it for anyoneThere are many times I felt the author over described peoples appearances or the setting skipping over these section which were usually about a paragraph long helped me get back into the story faster As a historical romance I understand the need for authors to describe certain aspects but feel as a reader some of it wasn't needed for me to picture how things were One of the descriptions I enjoyed best was of her father's study The author included memories sight and smell in the section which really made the setting come to life which is what lead me to believe she could do better at describing instead of listing what things looked likeThere are minor editing errors as most books have like a redundant phrase or word and sometimes using he instead of her and my instead of her but otherwise the book seems well put togetherAs a whole I'd say this read was enjoyable I was able to read most of it in one sitting which shows me I become engrossed in the story I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romance with a little twist here and there The authors best ability was to keep the reader guessing

Scandalous EndeavorsLady Amelia has only known the comfort of life in mid eighteenth century English aristocracy But when first her mother and then her father die she finds herself alone grief stricken and not of age Her appointed guardian an American uncle has ordered her travel to his plantation where she must remain for at least two years when she will come of age With the help of Lady Grace and Lady Sarah Lady Amelia gets her uncle to agree to give her four weeks A humorous and engagaing historical romance I really enjoyed this book For a short novel the characters were surprisingly well developed and the story didn't feel rushed Although the story is about Amelia Lord Goldstone stole the show for me His thwarting of Amelia's plans were funny and I could understand Amelia finding his arrogance annoying I would have liked Lord Goldstone to have had a real rival for Amelia with some jealousy driven meddling on his part The side characters made nice comedic additions to the story I was expecting Lady Grace to have played of a part in the match making schemes and when her nephew Lord Goldstone arrived on the scene I was anticipating that to be a deliberate act on her part to throw the couple together However she wasn't much involved and all the matchmaking schemes were plotted and executed by Amelia I found it surprising that in all her machinations to trick a gentleman into compromising her and thus forcing a marriage proposal neither she nor Lord Goldstone appeared overly concerned that they were in fact creating that same dilemma for themselves by travelling and staying over night together And then they decided to ride on to Scotland without letting anyone know where they were Lady Grace did not seem to be too bothered about their disappearance eitherNevertheless the story came to a fitting conclusion with all working out nicely in the endThis is a well written and entertaining romance from an author I will definitely be reading from in the future
