There was a time when a mere glance at a handsome man, a seductive movement by a single woman or even a slight, knowing nod between couples would be cause for denunciation. And sometimes the romance was all the more thrilling for the scandal of it. Welcome to the world of Scandalous, the newest imprint from Entangled Publishing.
Scandalous is historical, classical, sexy — romantic! Our tales are set between the 900s and 1920s/1940s, anywhere from the lush hills of Ireland, Regency London, Renaissance Italy … or even the Viking age. These stories are bold, sexy and heartfelt, and can be funny, action-packed, mysterious or dramatic. They are full of romance, deception, love and, yes, honor between strong men and even stronger women. Wherever there’s a masked ball, Scandalous will be there. Whenever there’s a damsel in distress, Scandalous will be there. If there’s a scoundrel to be had, Scandalous will have him.
Our journey to days gone by starts with three exceptional titles — A Little Bit Wicked by Robyn DeHart, Taming Her Forbidden Earl by Catherine Hemmerling and Christmas anthology All I Want for Christmas Is a Duke (and who doesn’t!). Robyn has published seven historicals, all of which have received great reviews, and this is Catherine’s first book for Entangled and the first in the Lady Lancaster Garden Society, an historical/mystery series. Our anthology writers are as popular as they are award-winning. Máire Claremont is a 2011 Golden Heart winner, and Delilah Marvelle’s Forever and a Day was voted by Booklist as one of the top romances for 2012.
So pack your bags and get ready to travel along with Scandalous. I promise you, you’ll have the time of your life!!
A Little Bit Wicked
by Robyn DeHart
Marcus Kincaid has returned to England after a ten-year absence. His older brother died during that time, making Marcus the Earl of Ashford. Not only that, his younger sister is embroiled in a potential scandal that could ruin her chance at marriage. His aunt has already called in reinforcements—The Paragon.
Vivian March is known simply as The Paragon. She moves through every circle within Society, smoothing out scandals and stopping gossip in its tracks. Everyone in London knows that if she aligns herself with you, Society will forgive you your sins. What they don’t know is that she uses their secrets to cover her own jaded past.
But with every kiss and every touch that Marcus thrusts upon her, Vivian comes to believe life is infinitely more fun when you can be just a little bit wicked…

Taming Her Forbidden Earl
by Catherine Hemmerling
Everyone knows William Bredon, the earl of Pembroke, has a reputation as a captivating rogue, determined to never marry until his duty to produce an heir requires it. So when he invites Lady Hannah Rochester to dance, Hannah vows to keep her distance. After all, it’s clear her mother would forbid a match with the devil-may-care ladies’ man. But the undeniably gorgeous William, with his dark humor and seductive gaze, draws her in nonetheless.
Of course, Lady Hannah is not completely what she seems, either. A member of the dowager Lady Lancaster’s Garden Society, she secretly spends her days solving mysteries and uncovering intrigues, and when she brings William into the fold, a sinister plot develops that throws the two together. William’s protective nature ensures he remains by Hannah’s side, but he will not surrender his anti-marriage stance. Can intrigue, passion, and maybe even a little bit of scandal reform the most notorious of rakes?

All I Want For Christmas is a Duke
by Delilah Marvelle & Máire Claremont
A Christmas anthology by two hot names in historical fiction…
Merry Christmas, Mrs. Robinson by Delilah Marvelle
Lady Jane left her father, the Earl of Chadwick, and the ton behind to experience life on the stage. After a disastrous marriage, the widow is living on the edge of poverty, determined to guard her heart, when a secret admirer from her past demands a second chance.
Shy and retiring Martin Nicholas Pierce, the Sixth Duke of Somerset, has carried a torch for Lady Jane since her youth, but he is five years her junior. When she married another man, he left for Europe, determined to put her out of his mind. After returning to find Lady Jane free, he vows to replace the memories of her cursed Twelfth Night with a new beginning.
The Twelve Days of Seduction By Máire Claremont
Alexander Hunt, Eighth Duke of Berresford, is aware his ward’s governess isn’t quite what she seems. Although Miss Flint is beautiful and intelligent, she misrepresented herself to gain employment, and he threatens to give her the sack mere days before Christmas.
Desperate to convince the sexy duke not to tear her from the little girl she’s grown to adore, Adriana challenges him to seduce her before the Twelve Days of Christmas have come to an end, although she fears it may cost her heart. Alexander accepts the challenge, unconcerned that he has as much to lose, if not more, than the delectable Miss Flint.
