One Kiss from You
The Barnes & Noble Review In the sequel to Scandalous Again, New York Times-bestselling author Christina Dodd serves up a charming Regency-style Cinderella story, laced with deception, intrigue, one vendetta, and a few murders. The real focus is on the unexpected and highly charged romance that blooms from a forced engagement between a handsome, rich, and arrogant American and timid young Eleanor, who is masquerading as her cousin the duchess of Magnus. As Remington Knight resolves to bend his new fiancée to his will (shades of The Taming of the Shrew are evident), Eleanor's gentle demeanor undermines his attitude and his hidden thirst for revenge, and Eleanor in turn gains confidence in her new role. What will happen to their marriage when he finds out she is not a duchess after all? As the many tangled subplots unfold, and Eleanor and Remington dodge cudgels, pistols, and relatives, Dodd delivers on her stated preference for highly romantic stories with super-virile, smart heroes, and even wittier and smarter heroines. Ginger Curwen.
