    I ve given this a C at AAR, so that s 3.5 starsBound by a Scandalous Secret is the third book in Diane Gaston s current series, The Scandalous Summerfields I haven t read either of the previous entries, but this one works perfectly well as a standalone The Summerfield siblings three sisters and their half brother have been tainted by their late father s reputation as a drunkard and libertine and the scandal that arose as the result of their mother running off with her lover The first two books saw middle sister, Tess, and brother Edmund get their respective HEAs, and now it s the turn of the youngest sister, Genna, a vivacious young woman who breezes through life somewhat na vely, it has to be said and puts on a cheerful face regardless of the disappointments she has suffered.The oldest Summerfield sister, Lorene whose story is up next married the much older, disagreeable but wealthy Lord Tin, in order to save her siblings from having to marry for money She and Genna now reside at Tin Hall, where Tin makes life thoroughly unpleasant through his constant criticism of Lorene and his obvious belief that neither young woman is capable of exhibiting proper behaviour.One December day, Genna is out sketching their old home of Summerfield Hall when a gentlemen ridin...

    Good book Genna is the youngest of the Summerfield siblings, living with her sister Lorene and her husband Years ago, when they were kicked out of their home by the new heir, Lorene had married a much older man as a way to make sure her siblings were cared for It is not a happy marriage, as Lord Tin never lets any of them forget what he has done for them The Summerfield siblings are also known as the Scandalous Summerfields because their parents created quite a scandal when their mother ran off with another man Sister Tess created scandal when forced to marry her husband though it turned out well, and their brother Edmund is illegitimate Genna has no intention of marrying What she has seen of marriage doesn t inspire her to try it herself Instead, she plans to hold out against Lord Tin s plans to marry her off until her twenty first birthday then make her own way in the world as a painter One day while painting she meets the Marquess of Rossdale and they strike up a friendship Ross is also under pressure to marry and is ...

    A third sibling in the Scandalous Summerfields miniseries gets the chance to possibly find love, though her trait for being blunt along with her family s tainted reputation will surely keep any respectable man from getting close to her Determination to choose her own destiny is also a big factor, as marriage is not really important to Genna Summerfield But after meeting the charming Marquess of Rossdale, her belief of what will make her future happy might end up changed I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two spirited individuals realize what they truly wanted out life, and Diane Gaston definitely takes them on a very adventurous journey of self discovery BOUND BY A SCANDALOUS SECRET is captivatingly enjoyable.While the Marquess of Rossdale is visiting with his good friend in Lincolnshire, he comes in contact with Genna Summerfield on several occasions The young woman was displaced from the estate where he is staying because of the actions of her parents, yet he finds her to be delightfully refreshing When she learns that the man with whom she has been conversing will one day be a duke, she is stunned by his friendly behavior toward her, especially when considering how most people think of her family.Although it is the wish of Genna s guardian to see her married or at least engaged by the conclusion of the current Season, it is not what she wants There...

    This is actually a pleasant surprise all the satisfying because it was unexpected It is well written with an easy enough flow to the story so as not to bore the reader The characters are fairly credible and relatable and I love that they fight for what inspires them or for the things most precious to them and what gives them purpose But like most things in life the...

    The Marquees of Rossdale enjoys his life as it is He has little interest in his birthright or in securing a wife He wishes to enjoy life in London without everyone trying to arrange a match for him When he is pressured, he decides to set up a phony engagement with a girl his family would never consider appropriate.As the youngest sister of the scandalous Summerfield sisters, Genna does not wish to marry Pretending to be engaged to Ross is perfect She will have a little bit of freedom to pursue her own goals But as the two share kisses, something seems to be blooming.Ross is enchanted with Genna She seems to be the one woman who does not simper in his presence She is delightfully alive and says what she feels The two embark on an engagement that somehow turns into It was fun to watch their reactions to each other This is one story to not miss if you enjoy a tale where you start out pretending and something develops You cannot help but fall in love with both Ross ...
