Description

Named one of the Best Romances of November by the Washington Post! Together they may create a scandal worthy of the stage, but can their love last after the final curtain falls...? Successful playwright Maggie Delamere has no interest in the flirtations of noblemen like Cameron, Viscount Marwood. She once paid dearly for a moment of weakness...and vows to rebuff the wildly persistent-and irritatingly handsome-scoundrel at every turn. But when pressure to deliver a new play hampers her creativity, an invitation to use his country estate as a writer's retreat is too tempting to resist...For years, Cam has admired Maggie's brilliant work and he can't pass up the opportunity to discover if the beautiful, mysterious playwright is as passionate and clever as the words that flow from her quill. He's never offered a lady his bed without being in it, but if it means loosening Maggie's pen-and her inhibitions-he'll do exactly that. But soon Cam's plans for seduction become a fight for Maggie's heart. He's more than the scandalous, carefree rake society believes him to be...and she's the only woman who has ever noticed.

Together they may create a scandal worthy of the stage, but can their love last after the final curtain falls...?

Successful playwright Maggie Delamere has no interest in the flirtations of noblemen like Cameron, Viscount Marwood. She once paid dearly for a moment of weakness...and vows to rebuff the wildly persistent--and irritatingly handsome--scoundrel at every turn. But when pressure to deliver a new play hampers her creativity, an invitation to use his country estate as a writer's retreat is too tempting to resist....

For years, Cam has admired Maggie's brilliant work and he can't pass up the opportunity to discover if the beautiful, mysterious playwright is as passionate and clever as the words that flow from her quill. He's never offered a lady his bed without being in it, but if it means loosening Maggie's pen--and her inhibitions--he'll do exactly that.

But soon Cam's plans for seduction become a fight for Maggie's heart. He's more than the scandalous, carefree rake society believes him to be...and she's the only woman who has ever noticed.

Review quote

"Eva Leigh's Wicked Quills are simply divine!" -- Tessa Dare, New York Times bestselling author "Eva Leigh's characters leap off the page and linger long after you've closed the book. She's a wonderful writer." -- Julie Anne Long, USA Today bestselling author "Leigh (Forever Your Earl, 2015) continues her lively Wicked Quills of London with this behind-the-scenes look at life in the theater in a romance with witty dialogue, heady passion, and strong female characters. Brava!" -- Booklist "buoyant and artistic... This lighthearted romp is full of rambunctious characters, witty repartee, and believable emotional development." -- Publishers Weekly "Leigh works her magic in her latest series entry, crafting a smart, snappy and steamy romance set in the wonderfully colorful world of the theater. Readers won't be able to put this one down." -- RT Book Reviews (Top Pick- 4 1/2 STARS and Nominated for Best British Isles-set Historical Romance of 2015) "I am completely enthralled by this magnificent tale. [...] With plenty of wit, scorching ardour, and the magic of the theatre world in Regency England, SCANDAL TAKES THE STAGE by Eva Leigh is the perfect book for romance fans everywhere." -- Fresh Fiction "packages all the best parts of historical fiction and wraps them up in a lovely romantic bow. [...] Leigh's heroines are complex, vivid characters who seem to have stepped out of an enviable time and place, and not just because of all the satisfying, sexy romance they get to have." -- Washington Post on Scandal Takes the Stage (Best Romance Novels of November)
