Seduction and Scandal - Charlotte Featherstone

With the scandalous nature of her birth to live down, Isabella Fairmont dreams of a proper marriage—even if a passionless one. She saves her deepest desires for the novel she dares to pen, wherein a handsome lord with dark powers seduces her. But then her courtship with an appropriate suitor is threatened by the sudden attentions of the reclusive Earl of Black…whose pale blue eyes and brooding sensuality are exactly as she described in her book. Isabella tries to resist the mysterious Earl of Black. Yet as he pursues her, with inexplicable knowledge of her past and kisses that consume her, Isabella fears she will succumb. If only the earl could tell Isabella the truth. With very real, and treacherous, thieves endangering her life, Black will need to protect Isabella from the very people she trusts the most….


Seduction & Scandal is the first book in the Brethren Guardian Series, and if it's any indication as to what is to come I simply can't wait!! Now, the fact that the author is a dear friend in no way affects the fact that I think her writing is simply magical! It just is!! I loved this story and the concept so much, I am going to attempt a brief review, I know I won't be doing this story justice though, just please, check it out for yourself!! 

Isabella Fairmont is a woman with a passionate soul, but who wants nothing more than to bury that passion and marry a man who will provide the safety and security that has always been fleeting in her life, but she cannot seem to resist the passion that sizzles between her the enigmatic Earl of Black. Lord Black has been called many things, dark, dangerous, a recluse and scandal and death seem to follow him. There is also the fact that Isabelle, who is a budding lady novelist, is penning a story about Lord Death, who is strongly coming to resemble Lord Black himself....But none of this will deter Black from the one thing he wants most...Isabella - It is as though his soul recognizes her as his. 

All of this passion and throw in the mystery of the magical Templar artifacts that the Brethren Guardians have been sworn to protect for generation. This story has everything, love, lust, passion, mystery, deceit and lots of unanswered questions that will leave you practically salivating for the next book in the series, Pride and Passion where we can spend much more time with the delicious Duke of Sussex and Lady Lucy Ashton! 

I am grateful I was able to get an ARC copy of the book from Netgalley, but at the same time it feels a little bittersweet, for this is a story you DO NOT want to see end!! 

Lord Black:
