Whisk me away to a far away place, where i'm surrounded by Tea, Coffee, Cake and a huge pile of Janice Preston's books and I will be a very happy lady. I've read quite a few of her books now and each one has made me fall further and further in love with historical romance. I could possibly go as far as to say, it's my favourite book genre!! 

Lady Eleanor Ashby is not having a very good time as of late. She's been caught up in quite a few accidents, that are starting to feel like more than just 'accidents.' They are beginning to unnerve her, as well as,  worry her Aunt immensely. When yet another incident happens on their way to London, Eleanor is helped by a dashing stranger. Matthew Thomas can't believe the woman he almost ran over with his horses; she's impossible and unlike any other woman he has ever met, so why, after hearing her story, does he feel so compelled to protect her? Will Eleanor accept this strangers offer to keep her safe or will her heart feel safer without him? 

*Sigh* I was infatuated with Matthew Thomas. He was dreamy, charming and noble; I would be happy to have him looking out for me any day of the week! I found his and Eleanor's interacts to be incredibly pure and honest, in the way that they were clearly drawn to one another and had instant chemistry, which meant they had a knack for finding themselves getting almost swept up by their wants and needs on more than one occasion, yet each time they got too close, they stopped themselves taking it too far and doing something that they would regret. Eleanor in particular was so innocent in this area, that I really felt for her because she was torn between doing the 'right thing' and doing what she so clearly desired. It came across very sweet. 

I enjoyed everything about this story: There was the flirting between Matthew and Eleanor. The mystery behind who was involved in the plots to kill Eleanor. The intrigue in the family ties and family quarrels. It had a little bit of everything to keep me turning the pages and not once did I find myself losing interest. I even managed to put the book down* at one point, only because I wanted to keep the last chapter for snuggling up in bed with - something I very rarely manage, but had to do with 'Return Of Scandal's Son,' because I couldn't bare the idea of not having Matthew in my life anymore! I was prolonging my heartbreak or trying to at least, because of course it still inevitably happened. A severe case of book hangover indeed!

If you are looking to be swept away, to escape for a few hours and to read a book you can fully invest your emotions into, I would highly recommend picking up 'Return Of Scandal's Son' today!

Happy Reading!


* Something I completely failed to do with Janice's new book 'Scandal and Miss Markham.' Oh my days Lord Vernon Beauchamp, I knew there was a reason I fell in love with you in 'Cinderella and the Duke.'
