Graciela, a widow looking for love in all the wrong places and Colin, a handsome rogue who harbors desire for a woman who is off-limits. Heck, they are both grown adults, so what is the big deal? Graciela, proud and pretty, is concerned about protecting her step-children and daughter from any scandal. Being with a younger man shocks her, but her world seems brighter with Colin in it. Will Graciela consider a future with him? Society will talk, but then they always ignored her because of her Spanish heritage. What will happen between them? There are dazzling night-escapades, intriguing characters with a lot of oomph, and a sizzling romance. Ms. Jordan adds just enough spice to make the story really zing! Oh my gosh, I was totally blown away by the luscious romance, which steamed my glasses. The author deals some stunning blows also, so the plot practically screamed read me all at once! THE SCANDAL OF IT ALL is a tapestry of emotions, illicit rendezvouses and scuttlebutt. A sigh-filled treasure!
