Delicious romance vavooms in Vivienne Lorret’s new novel TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL, the second novel in the Misadventures in Matchmaking series. It stars Briar Bourne, the youngest sister who has starry romantic notions. Briar seriously creates a big blunder when she unknowingly makes a mistake in matchmaking. The agency is now blacklisted in the tabloids. She desperately needs to prove herself and restore the agency as well. She thinks out of the box and comes up with the plan to find a bride for the unrepentant rogue known about town as Nicholas Blacklowe. the Earl of Edgemont. Only he has sworn off marriage. Can Briar sprinkle magic notions in handsome Nick’s head to reconsider matrimony?
Admittedly, Briar needs help learning what attracts men and women to one another. So, Nick is also the perfect person with his scandalous reputation to teach her. Nick sets up the ten steps to magnetic appeal, but prefers payment in the form of a kiss each time for his worldly advice. Oh my beating heart! Will Nick’s kisses zing Briar’s heart? Or will it be the other way around? Does Nick decide to become one of Briar’s clients as well at the agency? Only time will tell…
When innocent flirting and hot kisses turn into something more, TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL is simply scorching! Ms. Lorret delivers a fun, romantic and saucy novel that will claim your heart. I absolutely loved Briar’s witty, dreamy sentiments and her naive nature. Plus, Nicholas is dumbstruck by her romantic notions that I think sparks fly between them when they first meet. They make the most perfect match with their sizzling chemistry and spirited banter. The author delivers a divine story with the right touches of heart, humor and heat. Briar’s sisters and friends try to advise her but she has an independent streak. I absolutely loved the antics Briar comes up with and her humorous asides. It was so much fun watching Briar and Nick fall in love. If you adore love stories that build slowly then TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL definitely seals the deal!
