Anne heard some noise behind one of the doors of the house as she was going to see the duke and opened the door to find Belle with Patrick. She asked Patrick to leave but he refused.
Anne went to see the duke and with him blinking his eyes, he dictated a note to Anne about some papers. Anne, Patrick, her maid and the butler all looked through his room looking for the papers he was directing them too. Anne asked someone to come in and tear apart the duke's desk.
There they found the papers the duke was telling them about. It was papers stating that Phillip had adopted Dominick when he was a year old and that he was the legal heir to Phillip's estate.
Dom was released from custody after having been beaten to try and obtain a confession. He went to Anne and told her that he loved her and but Anne still didn't trust him. She left to return to Waverly Hall, the home that had been left to her in Phillip's will. Anne went riding and felt like she was being watched again. Dom soon appeared and she thought that he was the one following her. He left after she agreed to have tea with him that afternoon. She was then approached by Patrick and figured out that he was the one who had been in the castle in Scotland and done the things to scare her after that time.
She had fallen off her horse and the horse returned to Waverly Hall and Dom went looking for her. Dom recognized that he had a gun and was out of his mind. He and Patrick fought and Patrick shot Dom. Patrick left and went to get help. He didn't mean to shoot Dom. He also confessed to killing Fairhaven and ran off. Dom and Anne decided that they would tell the police but give him time to get away first.
Felicity was still in London and had not yet given up on trying to get Dom. Dom's friend Blake told Felicity to give it up. Dom was in love with his wife. Felicity left to return to her home neighboring Waverly Hall. Felicity came into the house with a gun and tried to shoot Anne.
Anne yelled for Patrick and acted like he was behind Felicity, which of course he wasn't. Anne knocked the gun out of Felicity's hands and sat on her until the staff arrived as well as Dominick. The constable had come from London to see Dom and tell he and Anne that someone had seen Fairhaven arguing with a woman and he fell to his death.
Dom was no longer a suspect in his murder. The constable saw to it that Felicity was taken to the local jail. Dom and Anne decided not to press charges against her but she was tried for the murder of Fairhaven. She was found not guilty and moved to Paris. Clarissa had gone to see the Duke after she heard that he was recovering and told him that she would never tell a soul that Dom was their son.
A few days after Dom had been shot, they returned to Rutherford house in London. The duke told Dom that he had an affair with Clarissa. Clarissa had told him that she was pregnant and he didn't believe her. She chose instead to marry his son to get back at him. The earl and the duke talked over what had happened and Phillip legally adopted Dom. Clarissa was not told of their arrangement.
Clarissa and Dom talked after he found out that the duke was his father. Dom was not unhappy because he knew the duke loved him. Dom told Clarissa that the talk would all blow over in time and that she needed to go to one of their country residences and remain there until all the gossip died down. They were living at Waverly Hall when Anne received a note to meet in the gardens. Anne and Dom discussed the fact that they each had received a note to meet in the garden like when they had ended up married.
They discussed the fact that neither had sent the note. They figured out that the duke had sent each of them a note intending that they be caught together and be forced to marry. Anne told Dom that it was confirmed that she was expecting and it appeared that it might be twins. The duke overheard the conversation and was happy that everything had turned out as he intended. Jul 18, Alexis-Morgan Roark rated it did not like it Shelves: May I have those hours of my life back?
This was one of the first romances I read. I don't know if my rating would be the same if I read this now as I remember that the hero was a real jerk, but I have very fond memories of all my first romances. It's one of the books that got me hooked in the genre, after all. B What an emotional rollercoaster Anne and Dom are on.
The story seemed like it spanned just a few months. Anne is from America and is twenty-one. She went to live with relatives in England when she was eleven. She has blue eyes and black hair. She's loved Dom since she first met him when she was an adolescent and is very hurt that he's abandoned her for four years, the entire length of their marriage.
I have no idea why he did that to her. Dom is twenty-eight, has golden hair and golden eyes. I got a little tired of them not getting along and the misunderstandings. That alone was a bit boring. What was very interesting was the mysterious things that were happening to Anne. Several people had a grudge against her and they were leaving cryptic clues for her alone to let her know they were behind the scary incidents.
Anne is too passive. Dom is alright except for the fact that he has two illegitimate children by his mistress of five years. It's unclear if he had that mistress, or any others, while married to Anne. I'm assuming he did. Adding those kids to the story was unappealing to me and didn't really serve a purpose. The cousins Anne's lived with since she was eleven, Felicity and her brother Patrick, were a disturbed pair and I enjoyed them in the story.
I didn't really like Dom's mother, Clarisse, too much. She's a bitter, jealous woman, same as Felicity. Things got a bit convoluted toward the end when Dom found out about his paternity and who's behind the shenanigans. Feb 16, Diana rated it really liked it Shelves: When Anne and her cousin's fiance Dominic are caught in a compromising position at the engagement party, the scandal forces them to wed.
Dominic subsequently leaves for four years, leaving Anne heartbroken and ostracized. Brought back by his father's death, Dom is startled to realize that he and Anne just might suit after all. Dom is a very alpha hero, overwhelming poor delicate Anne, who alternates between being aflutter in Dom's presence and being irrationally shrewish.
Currents of betrayal and When Anne and her cousin's fiance Dominic are caught in a compromising position at the engagement party, the scandal forces them to wed. Currents of betrayal and distrust are heavily interlaced through the book. For all this, though, I have fond memories of reading it in the past. Apr 28, Holly rated it really liked it. This book was very easy to get through and was a quick read. I enjoyed the mystery behind the romance and the scenery.
Some of the descriptions in love scenes were repetitive. I agree that the hero was a jerk, but it was different than I expected and I enjoyed it. Aug 03, Aria B. Countess22 rated it it was amazing. Titles says it all: Maybe it's reffered to Anna, the protagonist that is giving into her passion over Dominic, despite him damping her after the day they got married. A book that I've read many times and it never gets boring ;.
Jun 12, Marie rated it it was amazing. Excellent mix of romance, suspense, mystery. Loved it, can't wait to pick up Blake's story.
Her story lines are good Not like the usual historical romances. Jun 13, Natasha rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lo habitual: Estoy leyendo libros de la lista "cheating husbands" maridos infieles y en casi todos pasa lo mismo.
Invito a estas autoras a que se inspiren en Emir, el sexy malo oficial de la serie turca Kara Sevda. Oct 29, Marina P rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Lovers of second chance romance. Very good love story, fast paced with a few unexpected twists. I liked especially that the heroine did not easily forgive the Hero in this book.
Maybe I am too cold hearted but I think that forgiveness for hurting somebody must be really earned. Above all I liked that the villains were not portrayed in black and white, I guess their reactions were a bit too melodramatic therefore one star less. Oct 23, Ms Fine rated it really liked it. Anne St. Four years earlier, Dominick St. Georges compromised her in a garden, married her and then left his unconsummated marriage to travel, raise horses and entertain assorted mistresses.
Anne, derided as an American adventuress and shunned by society, has lived a quiet life managing her husband's estate and making friends Anne St. Anne, derided as an American adventuress and shunned by society, has lived a quiet life managing her husband's estate and making friends with his grandfather, the powerful Duke of Rutherford, who actually engineered the match.
When Dom returns home for his father's funeral, he sees how well Anne has developed and naturally decides to stay. Will she have him? With interminable heaving of her small breasts, Joyce's heroine vacillates passionately and unendingly. Someone is understandably trying to kill her. Could it be Dom? Or perhaps the beautiful, buxom Felicity, whom Dom jilted?
Or Felicity's brother Patrick, who supposedly loves Anne but is in the throes of an emotional crisis? And who is trying to frame Dom for the murder of his father's male lover?
This heavy-handed, sexual melodrama set in Victorian England is weighted down by a supposedly sensible heroine who is in fact perpetually overwrought and denser than a hedge It has taken me a long time to finish reading Beyond Scandal.
Although I knew I could have finished it in one sitting, provided I had the time. Forgive me, I was busy with work.
I'm in no mood to write a review today. I'll just say you won't regret reading it. It will make you think, what was the scandal? In this case scandalS.
All I could remember was Dominick was really dashing and Anne was very proper. Brenda Joyce indeed took us one step further compared to the medieval passion of Promise Of The Rose which I just read last week. It will make you think, there were mysteries I couldn't wait to uncover. I will not reveal them, I hope you read it to know what I'm talking about. I think the way she wrote some scenes were a bit bolder than what I read in the past. Either Brenda was experimenting or she was just growing as an author.
Dom abandoned Anne on their wedding night, so she remained a virgin for four years. She never forgave him for that. For she was the talk of the ton for what happened. They had an instant connection, although Dom was engaged to Anne's cousin. Please read so you'd find out on how they ended up being married to one another.
The duke here, Dom's grandfather reminds me so much of Leon Fortalejo. I love how Dom always insisted his marital right but not to the extent of forcing her. How he convinces Anne he loves her. How Anne was so stubborn and said "no" many times to Dom even though her heart was aching. I love how they were when they stayed in Scotland together for a week. They were like newlyweds. Amanda has no problem with that and sets out to seduce him and we get fireworks from the Old World to Ireland.
Throughout that book though, we see where he genuinely cares for her. In the 'Promise' however both leads -not just Alexi- are just stubborn for the sake of being stubborn and proud. Alexi starts off as being sweet yet strong, but by the middle of the book he is terrible.
I am sorry folks, but under no circumstances to do I excuse a hero sleeping with and having mistresses during a marraige when he abandons his wife after marrying her.
With that said, the heroine wore me out emotionally with her silliness. I had no problem with her in the first part of the book- at the end of the day, I she was accurately portrayed as a spoiled miss. She was not spiteful or mean to others, she was merely hurt by Alexi and wanted to get back at him. I think that any female with no real independence or autonomy of her own, would resort to flirting to making someone else jealous. I do have a problem with her in the latter parts of the novel where she embraces the persona of a loose wife.
Now Alexi actually took women, which I can not forgive, but for her to want to create that appearance is ludicrous. Like make up your mind child! How can you claim to love Alexi but then want to run around town with men to create the appearance of having lovers?
She did this with the excuse that she didnt want anyone to see how humiliated she was. I get that Bear in mind that as a virgin she could have gotten an annulment, but didn't want to because of that being too humiliating. IMO she loved herself and her pride more than Alexi. Now as the book moves on, Alexi is back in England 6 years later and hell bent on hating his wife, and downloads a house to live apart from her.
Apparently his widow was continuing his hobby. Sarah had just entered the room. She was a small and plain brunette, although her eyes were huge and pretty. Today, she was wearing a drab blue dress covered with splotches of paint. She appeared very pale, her nose and eyes red.
Clearly, she had been weeping. What are you doing here? Francesca forgot all about her own problems. She rushed forward and embraced her friend. Who would do such a thing? Sarah trembled in her arms. You have a badly burned hand and you are recuperating! Their eyes met. I am your friend! Sarah, we must catch this miserable culprit! Have you called the police? These days, the police and Rick Bragg were one and the same and never mind what Connie had said a few minutes ago.
I have been too devastated.
Channing stepped into the room. She takes a tea and goes directly into her studio.
She will spend the entire day there, if I do not rescue her from her frenzy. Francesca looked from mother to daughter. Francesca, have you had lunch? Channing asked.
Francesca smiled, politely but firmly. If so, I need to interview your daughter. My, Francesca, you are so professional. Channing smiled. Do as you shall, then, Francesca. She had, and she had mentioned her resolve to Sarah. I would never let down a friend in need. She leaned forward eagerly. I get up at five on most mornings, and go directly there.
Francesca patted her hand. On Friday morning? Sarah nodded. And worse, I feel ill. I feel … raped, I suppose. Or I imagine that this is what being raped feels like. I am shocked and sad and angry and I cannot stop crying! Why would someone do this? Francesca sat up straighter. I have no idea. But whoever it was, he got into this house to do his deadly deed sometime between noon on Friday and five-fifteen Saturday morning.
