The story here is so slight that it makes the book seem overly long and slow. It’s clear Antigone’s never going to marry Lord Aldrich...Much of the plot centers around Antigone’s horse but that story isn’t written in a way...Lastly, the ending to this book is so rushed it’s a rude shock.

Synopsis

Breath of Scandal from The Reckless Brides series

Elizabeth Essex

Forced by her family into an engagement with a man she can never abide, Antigone Preston knows only a scandal will save her from a loveless marriage. But knocking a man down to the ballroom floor with her fists brings dangerous consequences. She may have ruined her reputation, but now she's endangered her heart…
The son of an earl and a career navy man, Captain William Jellicoe has no interest in the frivolities of London—and even less in the institution of marriage. But there's something steering him toward Antigone. He has never met anyone as brazen and unconventional as…himself. But will he risk it all for a woman who still has the breath of scandal hot on her lips?
