"With its free-spirited heroine and honorable hero, Dare's latest is a riotous romance. Her signature humor sparkles (I'll never look at a peach and cucumber the same way again) and when combined with a mystery that turns into a Regency game of Clue, readers are captivated." -- RT Book Reviews (top pick) "Artful diversions, a clever heroine, and intense passion are all brought together by Dare's smart writing and spot-on matchmaking...The irresistibly provocative, classy love scenes set the bar high for other historical romance novels." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Do You Want to Start a Scandal is good. It's so, so good. [...] It worked perfectly for me. [...] This book is funny, it's charming, and the romance works so beautifully." -- Smart Bitches, Trashy Books (A Grade) "An irrepressible, independent-minded heroine and a responsible hero who's leading two lives fall for each other in a rollicking and passionate romp that is just what Spindle Cove fans will relish." -- Library Journal (starred review)
