Last Night's Scandal ~ Loretta Chase

Last Night's Scandal by Loretta Chase

After surviving the perils of Egypt, Peregrine Dalmay, Earl of Lisle, is back in London, facing the most dire threat of all: his irrational family . . . and Miss Olivia Wingate-Carsington. A descendant of notorious--but very aristocratic--swindlers, the delectable redhead has the ability to completely unhinge him and a long history of dragging him into her scandalous schemes.

Olivia may be Society's darling, but she's aware a respectable future looms menacingly. And so when Lisle is forced to go on a family mission, she sees this as the perfect chance for one last adventure--even if it is with the one man in the world she can't wrap around her finger. But really, she only wants to "help" . . .

Which is why Lisle and Olivia find themselves in a gloomy Scottish castle inhabited by spiteful ghosts and craven murderers . . . and a shocking secret: the greatest peril of all may be burning within their own stubborn hearts.

Colleen C:
The first thing I love about this book is that Olivia and Lisle are completely recognizable as the now grown up twelve- and thirteen-year-olds from Lord Perfect. But their adult story is in no way dependent on their previous adventure. The second thing I love is that they are truly best friends, even when they want to kill each other, even when they want to have hot sex.
