Nathan Grey, the Earl of Lindsey, is infamously known as the Libertine of Lindsey for his scandalous ways with women. But when he hears gossip that his estranged wife, Evelyn, is about to be named in The Book of Scandal, he has no choice but to remove her from London to protect her and himself from charges of treason -- even if it calls for abduction! While Evelyn has no legal recourse against the man who broke her heart years ago but is still considered her lord and master, she is no longer the immature girl Nathan married. Her enforced homecoming quickly turns into a battle of wills that tears down her husband's defenses and lays bare the passion that still burns between them. Before it is too late, Nathan must confront powerful adversaries as he convinces Evelyn that she is not only his wife, but the one woman he will love for all time.… (lisätietoja)

I thought this was so well written.
It conveys with very realistic feelings, whether you agree with the way the hero and heroine react it not, they both make mistakes but it's well written and honest.

There is cheating in their separation.

He is numb so cheats with random women who of course don't mean anything.

She feels rejected by her husband, feels he hasn't offered her support but instead has sought comfort from another woman. The other woman is married and has only offered a shoulder to lean on but to the heroine it feels like a betrayal so she doesn't cheat but finds herself developing feelings for another man in her time away in London and considers a physical relationship with him.

I don't find the actions of either particularly surprising. I do not agree with the cheating but of course men of the time this is based often engaged in extramarital affairs and there is an immoral spirit at court in London that the heroine is immersed in, so she does well to not have succommed earlier considering the temptation and opportunities.

There are no intimate scenes with anyone other than the Hero and heroine.
The story is about reconciliation even if when they first reunite that may not have been the intention.

I found some of the writing very emotional. They split originally due to not dealing well with the loss of a child, that situation is hard in this day and age with all the understanding, counseling and even offer of medication for things like depression but of course in those days this sort of support network didn't exist and wasn't understood for the mother or the father.

I liked both the Hero and heroine, I could see how hard it was for both.
I did feel the Hero's cheating was sort of excused even though his reputation was widely known, even if it was accepted at that time I would have liked more redemption or discussion how that was not acceptable. ( )

The Book of Scandal is the first in the Scandal series by Julia London. The only other book I have read from this author is "Ruthless Charmer" which was some time ago, and I lost track of this author. But after finding a review of this one on goodreads from a fellow friend, I decided to pick this one up at my local library. After reading the synopsis, I was very fascinated with the hero dragging his wife home to protect them from scandal. Definitely drew me in. The story begins with Nathan Grey, being informed of the huge scandal that is spreading like wildfire through London. When he is warned that his wife may be implicated, and if they are on the losing side, they are both in a world of hurt. So he rushes to London, not having seen his wife for three years, to take her home. At first she is very resistant and stubborn, so he practically dumps her in his carriage. Thus begins a wonderful tale of rebuilding past hurt and mistrusts, and learning to simply love again.

The Book of Scandal was a story that I magically fell in love with from the start. This tale is the epitome of everything I adore about romance novels, especially historical ones. I had forgotten the talent of storytelling by Julia London that takes your breath away. Once you start reading this book, you start to see its not a simple romance of a couple that has been separated for three years, it goes way deeper than that. They both have been married for about ten years, but three years previous they lost their son, and drifted apart. You see how much they still love each other, even after all this time, but there is a emotional block that is preventing them from finding their HEA. The plot thickens a bit with various scenes and there is a mystery aspect added to the story that give this story even more depth.

I really enjoyed seeing these two slowly fall in love again, and rekindle their desire for each other. It is very heart wrenching at times, and I will warn you, that a box of tissues might be needed from time to time, however there are some uplifting scenes that make you feel giddy inside. A stunning romance that sucks you into the story and with the detail, the tender romantic scenes, and characters too endearing, you will find yourself enraptured from the first page to the last! ( )

I did not think that I would rate The Book of Scandal as highly as I did, after the way it started. The author did a fine job of bringing me around, for the most part.
My main problem was the hero's infidelity. It wasn't just that he was physically unfaithful (and the author is a little fuzzy with the details), but also had a whore on his lap when the story started, and it is clear with his reputation, that this was a regular occurrence. So, he had been unfaithful, with a capital U. He never apologized, although the heroine did (for everything she did), even though she was not physically unfaithful. I felt a little gypped that she did not get an apology from him. The rest of their past history or lack of maturity or whatever, did not really matter to me.
The hero was clearly in love with the heroine, and they did work it out, but that initial impression of him stayed with me throughout the book.

I'm actually quite fond of Julia London's writing, so it's sad that I kind of hated this book. I say 'kind of' because it wasn't until more than halfway through that I realized I couldn't stand Evelyn. So, definitely not one of London's better books. ( )

I found this book to be realistic. The general plot line was similar to ones I have seen before. A husband kidnapps his wife and they somehow reconnect and fall back in love.
But this wasn't the average romance novel. The tale of these two people went much deeper when it included the loss of their child. I found myself sad for them. I felt thier pain and Julia London did a wonderful job showing the reader how each parent dealt with the loss, how it was equally devastating to both. I look for books that make me feel something. This book I will remember because I felt what they were feeling. I have read hundreds of romance novles but this one will continue to stand out as more that just the usual fluff.
That beign said at time sI found the heroine frustratingly whiny and found myself rooting for the hero and wishing she'd knock it off.
The historical information about the attempted royal divorce was an interesting way to introduce this series. I recommend getting all the Scandal books. ( )
