A Note of Scandal

A Note of Scandal - Nicky Penttila Visit www.tattooedbookreview.com for this review and more!A lovely, thoughtful, and entertaining regency romance.There’s just something I love about a historical romance of this type. It’s sweet, there is very little sex and it’s not graphic at all. However, I always enjoy being reminded of a bygone era, in which simply flashing a bit of ankle was incredibly sexy. When a touch, caress, or kiss, or a single lady being in a man’s residence without a chaperone was dangerously scandalous. Somehow, it offers a bit of perspective and balance to what our world is like now. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE steamy, graphic, kinky sex scenes, but I certainly appreciate the qualities in this type of romance. Even it the confines of modesty, the author still creates a palpable heat, sensuality, and chemistry between Livvie and Will, and the progression of their relationship was definitely one I enjoyed.In addition to the romance, the book highlights social issues of the time, including women’s rights, and the plight of military veterans returning from war. Not only is the book romantic, but thought-provoking as well.Penttilla’s writing has a lyrical quality that is perfect for a romance set in this time period and is a lovely compliment to the “musical” undertones of the plot. This is a great read, I would recommend it to all romance fans and especially fans of historical romance.*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
