    1. My first thought upon completing this novel was: how can I send some flowers to Mrs. Romain? Contrary to what the cover may suggest, this book is not in the least light-hearted, nor does it contain untamed passions. Rather, this is for me analogous to a game of chess (which is also a motif in the book) and the slow unraveling of complex characters. It is mentally intense, utterly gripping, and will monopolize your time once you pick it up. Jane Tindall is the country cousin of the Earl of Xavier [...]


    2. I got about 80% of the way through this before I stopped.While the writing is good, the characters and the plot just weren't my style. The characters had too many things that weren't in common and no spark. They fought all the time, said dreadful things, didn't communicate, and had unrealistic expectations for each other. There was too much pain, awkwardness, and miscommunication for me to enjoy it. I kept reading because I typically adore Theresa Romain's work, but after I got to 80% and I real [...]


    3. This book was ruined by rushing two characters into marriage and then centering an entire plot around a misunderstanding. If Edmund had just told Julia what was going on from the beginning, and if she had just told him what he was doing that upset her, nothing else would have happened in the book. That makes for a deeply frustrating and unsatisfying read. Not to mention it leaves everything feeling very flat, from the characters to the tension to the romance. All of it was so very blah and dull [...]


    4. Jane Tindall loses £10,000 in a game of cards. Edmund Ware, Baron Fitzpatrick, saves her from leering card sharks with a hasty marriage. There are approximately ninety gadjillion conversations about feelings and gifts and love before we finally get resolution for Edmund's looming angst storm. 1. In the first 10% of this book, Jane loses, gets married, gets laid, and admits she is in love with Edmund. It's very sudden and it's all setup so that we can spend the next 90% of the book philosophizin [...]


    5. We've previously met Jane Tindall in Season for Surrender, she's Xavier's cousin and a bit wild. Now Jane has reached her majority and received a major disappointment: she has been informed by her cousin that he does not trust her with the sum of money that he has been keeping in trust for her. Xavier has, instead, reverted the amount to a dowry and Jane can only access the money when she gets married.But who would marry her? She's a poor relation, with very little social connections and is soci [...]


    6. ‘Season for Scandal’ is the third book in Theresa Romain’s Holiday Pleasures Series of which I read none before. Actually, it wasn’t necessary for me to read the other two books to understand and enjoy this one.That said, I have to say that I’m new to this author and her voice and style are nothing as I expected it to be. I thought this would be one of those lighthearted and witty tales, but I was pleasantly surprised by what it actually was, a character driven love story of two comple [...]


    7. My Rating: 4.5/5Lovely, sweet, and surprising, this book is a historical romance you don't want to miss. Season for Scandal was a wonderful romance, one that I really enjoyed. Loved this book!Jane was a very sensible heroine. And I mean that in the best of ways because, after reading so many historical romance, you get a little frustrated with the melodramatic, overly emotional heroines. They're wonderful, but they can get to be a bit much. Jane was actually reasonable. I really liked that, when [...]


    8. Up until about three-quarters of the way through, this was going to be a 4.5 star read, possibly a DIK for AAR. But the last 20% or so didn't live up to the early promise, so I've downgraded it a bit.I've given this a B at AAR, so that's 4 stars.Season for Scandal grabbed me immediately and had me tearing up by about a quarter of the way through. The characterisation of the hero and heroine was excellent and the story was well-written with plenty of humour and wonderful dialogue along the way [...]


    9. DNF at page 172. Partly my fault. I picked this up right after several books by Mary Balogh who is one of the all-time greats almost anything would suffer in comparison. That said. WTF? It starts with a plot hole big enough to sink a house. The heroine is shown being a super clever impersonator of a type of sophisticated society lady. She knows just how to flirt and act to get the strangers -all men - she's playing cards with for high stakes (10k Pounds which is $250k in today's dollars) to let [...]


    10. “You see,” Edmund began, “certain people have entrusted their . . . er . . . trust to me. And I must fulfill that trust. And now is the time that the trust which they have entrusted –”“Oh, stop,” Jane cut him off. “You’ll do yourself an injury if you try to end that sentence.”I’m resisting the urge to quote all the good bits, because they’re better in context anyway, right? But if you’re looking for something light and Christmasy, but neither too fluffy nor too sentimen [...]


    11. I give it 3.5 of 5 CupcakesIt started out good and it stayed good till bout the 40% mark, that's when it started to drag a little! I do think the story would of been better if some things would of been taken out of the book and it wouldn't of effected the story at all!Jane, she annoyed me throughout the whole book. She was never happy with anything, even when she got what she wanted she pushed it away. Anytime anybody would pay her a compliment she would automatically assume they were lying to h [...]


    12. This romance was different. I can't say all the ways it was different because that would be to spoil things, but yes it was different.First we have Jane who marries Edmund after a certain thing she was involved in. They are not in love, he does try to treat her well. But yes the whole marriage is kind of blah. I wished for love but after a while I knew the truth. If these two want a happy loving marriage they will have to work for it. And so they did.Jane was strong, again I can't say the situat [...]


    13. Good story. Loved the details of the plot to capture the villain. Very much admire this style of writing from TR. I felt sorry for Edmund in a way - but he needed a kick up the tush!Not the light read I thought from the cover - the story had gravitas!


    14. Edmund es más bueno que el pan, es un amor. Pero no terminé de entender a Jane, no entendí sus razonamientos para enojarse con Edmund. Y el conflicto me pareció muy tirado de los pelos, ni hablar del "escándalo". No se como se le ocurre a Jane dejar al marido, teniendo en cuenta la época es una locura. Además de que Edmund es re bueno con ella, lo hace quedar re mal a los ojos de la sociedad, al menos debería haber fingido por una cuestión de honor. Al final tiene dos clichés que me gu [...]


    15. So, this was solidly in the "I cannot understand how you are failing to disclose this" style of romance which are one of my least favorite types. I mean, just talk! problem solved! That said, I loved Jane so very dearly. She was not perfect or stunning or born to her role in life. She was just her. Good parts and bad. At times trying to hard to please, at other times trying to prove her strength. She was wonderful. I wish Edmund had risen to the occasion and really proved himself worthy of her.


    16. This wasn't badly written (which is often the case for books I only give 2 stars to), I just really didn't like it. I didn't understand the heroine a lot of the time. She spent a lot of the book genuinely upset by the hero, but a lot of the time it didn't make sense to me why she was so upset. There were definitely a few times where I understood why she was upset, and wanted to bop the hero one. But mostly it was a lot of anger for very little reason, and while the ending was sweetish, I'm not c [...]


    17. This may be the most unique regency romance I have ever read. The feelings I felt as I read this story were unlike the feelings I normally feel while reading these sorts of books. I really took some time to evaluate my feelings about the main characters. There were times when I wasn't sure if I LOVED this book or absolutely hated it. Eventually I came to an understanding with it and was able to award it four stars but it was a journey, one that I am unaccustomed to taking when I pick up a histo [...]


    18. This was the first book I read of Theresa. I really liked it. Jane and Edward marry but don't know how to deal with each other.They like each other. Jane loves Edward. He is unsure what to do with that. They have difficulties.They separate for a time until finally Edward realizes just how important Jane is to him.They find their love for each other and realized they belong together.I will read more of her books.



    19. This is my first try with a Historical Romance novel. I wasn't sure I'd like it or that maybe it wouldn't be my cup of tea. I was pleasantly surprised. Jane TIndall isn't rich, she's not exceptionally beautiful but she's attractive by the standards of the late 1800's in London. She happens to be the cousin of a Baron but se kind of the "black sheep." Edmund Ware, Baron Kirkpatrick is Jane's Baron cousin's closest friend and he's known Jane most of her life. To him, he's just his friend's cousin. [...]


    20. Posted on What I'm ReadingAll right, I finished reading Season for Scandal by Theresa Romain. Well, I haven't read the first two books. I know, I know, but I do own them. I'm going to make it my goal to read them before Christmas. Please feel free to bug me about them. Anyway, we are going to focus on Jane Tindall and Edmund Ware, Viscount Kirkpatrick, story first.Let's be honest, marriage of convenience are never ever convenient. This is why they're my favorite to read. Yes, the hero and heroin [...]


    21. Season for Scandal is the third book in Theresa Romain’s Holiday Pleasures series. The tale offers up a twist on the marriage of convenience trope with complicated and troubled characters. While this wasn’t my favorite, it was well paced with suspense and mystery that kept me engaged. Mini review: secrets, complicated characters and slow to build romance.We meet Jane Tindall while in disguise playing a card game in which she gambles too much. Just as she plans to recoup her losses, Edmund Wa [...]


    22. I must've forgotten how much I hated the other two Theresa Romain books I read because somehow I picked this one up. Blissfully, only the essential bits regarding the main characters in this one came back to me from the previous book.This book worked for me so much more than the previous one. The characters felt much more realistic - there was a lot less fake it til you make it and parcelling out of expressions.I liked Jane a lot. I always enjoy a spunky heroine. In the previous book she felt qu [...]


    23. Check out the full review atbinaramesh/2013Shee Tindall thought that she was an ordinary lass. She was anything but ordinary. Her fierce sense of independence leads her to the gambling table from where she had to be rescued by Edmund Ware, Baron Kirkpatrick-who was one of the oldest friends of her cousin Xavier.What she had not expected after being rescued from the rakes, was a marriage proposal. But it had to be a marriage of convenience, with no emotion resembling love to be involved .The only [...]


    24. Theresa Romain creates complex characters and witty dialogue with a touch of drama and intrigue. This is an excellent to story to keep you captivated until the end. Jane Tindall is a bit of a hellion in which she likes to gamble and take risks. When she is cheated and in danger of losing more than she was willing to gamble, Edmund Ware steps in to save her by announcing their betrothal and settling her debt. Edmund has his own issues and secrets to protect. What starts out as a marriage of conve [...]


    25. I loved this book! Season for Scandal is the first book by Theresa Romain that I have read, but it certainly will not be my last. This is a uniquely talented writer. Subtlety and control are two words that come to mind. Romain never pushes the story or the relationship forward. She carefully lets the situations evolve and lets the hero and heroine find their own way to their Happily Ever After. She makes us wait…for…it. Her dialogue is quirky, sweet and a little sarcastic at the same time (h [...]


    26. Season for Scandal is the third book in Theresa Romain's Holiday Pleasures Series. It is a light hearted romp that takes a look at some serious subjects And the combination is a really sweet read.Plane Jane Tindall wants little more than to be able to take care of herself Well she would like to be swept off her feet by a man madly in love with her but that is unlikely. So now she would rather be financially independent and live an interesting life. A life of MORE, a life where she can travel and [...]


    27. I have dual feelings about this book. I did like Jane’s character, she was very different and refreshing from the usual historical romance heroines. She tried to gamble (poker!) with money she did not had, to earn her indepence. But she was playing against a cheat, and so she lost. Big time. At the same time, Edmund Ware spoiled her disguise, exposing her true identity to her opponents. He then offers to pay off her gambling debts, not knowing it is 10.000 pounds. The exact sum of the dowry he [...]


    28. I haven't read the two previous books in this series, and strictly speaking they weren't necessary to enjoy this book or follow the plot. I can't help but think, though, that they must have done a good deal of setting up these two characters, because both were introduced very abruptly here-- like we were supposed to know them already. From the very first pages, Romain announces that Jane loves Edmund, but doesn't really bother to explain why. It makes what should have been a very poignant scene [...]


    29. Originally posted HERE.It says something about the quality of the author’s witty writing that I was happy to overlook to wallpapery aspects of this story to enjoy the book. Season for Scandal is part of a series, and while you’ll know previous featured couples when they appear on the page, you also don’t need to have read past books to understand and enjoy this one.At the start I was worried. Wallpaper historical romances feature American-style characters masquerading as members of England [...]
