Three Schemes and a Scandal



Scheme: A folly, a swan, a little lie . . . a compromising position

Lady Charlotte Brandon is always up to something . . . but somehow her best schemes for matchmaking often end in disaster.

Scheme: A family feud, outrageously false rumors, a shattered priceless vase . . . an even more compromising position

It’s no wonder she’s considered by at least one devastatingly handsome man to be devious, destructive, and dangerously appealing.

Scheme: A fox, a rabbit, a childhood foe, and a dashing rogue . . . the proposal to end all proposals

It’s high time someone turned the tables on the lovely Lady Charlotte, and James Beauchamp is just the man to do it. Even if it means beating Charlotte at her devious game with a scandalous scheme of his own.

The reviews


Like a glass of champagne, Three Schemes and a Scandal is bright, bubbly, and wholly delicious.
Joyfully Reviewed


I loved, loved, loved these two together. Their scenes together were simply hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud more than once. Not only were these two funny but their relationship and chemistry between them was explosive. These two were sexy together. Not only that, they have a bond that transcends the pages.
