Enter the Regency world of the Writing Girls series in Maya Rodale's charming tale of a scheming lady, a handsome second son, and the trouble they get into when the perfect scandal becomes an even more perfect match.

Scheme: A folly, a swan, a little lie . . . a compromising position

Lady Charlotte Brandon is always up to something . . . but somehow her best schemes for matchmaking often end in disaster.

Scheme: A family feud, outrageously false rumors, a shattered priceless vase . . . an even more compromising position

It's no wonder she's considered by at least one devastatingly handsome man to be devious, destructive, and dangerously appealing.

Scheme: A fox, a rabbit, a childhood foe, and a dashing rogue . . . the proposal to end all proposals

It's high time someone turned the tables on the lovely Lady Charlotte, and James Beauchamp is just the man to do it. Even if it means beating Charlotte at her devious game with a scandalous scheme of his own.

After reading the other Novels in the Writing Girls Series I had to read about Charlotte. So glad I did. Once I started, I couldn't stop. Absolutely hillarious, romantic, edge of my seat book. A MUST read.

I enjoyed Maya Rodale's Writing Girls series, so finding this novella was a plus. Three Schemes And A Scandal is a lovely way to tie up lose ends. Take the phone off the hook, kick back, and enjoy this fun, funny story. Our heroine is Lady Charlotte Brandon, sister of the Duke of Hamilton and Brandon. He's the hero from A Groom of One's Own, the 1st book in the series. Charlotte causes trouble, loves matchmaking, and has promised her long suffering brother no more schemes. She doesn't mean any harm but the tale of the "Fashion Disaster of 1825" will be told for a long time. Things backfire a lot. James Beauchamp is our hero. He's back in London after a 5 year Grand Tour of the continent. He just didn't want to come home. He notices right away that his childhood playmate has grown into a lovely young woman. Things get tricky as they had a falling out for which Charlotte never forgave him. Charlotte cooks up a scheme (did you think she wouldn't?) to pair James with her "Fashion Disaster" victim. Of course things backfire and James is drawn into an adventure such as he hasn't experienced since childhood. You'll want to pay attention to a cute part of the plot that is revieled along the way. Don't miss it, it's tragic and funny. Who is George Coney? Has anyone read his autobiography? All will be made clear in good time. Happy reading.

THREE SCHEMES AND A SCANDAL by Maya Rodale is an interesting historical romance set in Regency England. A novella that is a quick fun read. 3.5 of "The Writing Girls",but can read a stand alone. See,"A Groom Of One's Own", "A Tale of Two Lovers", "The Tattooed Duke" and "Seducing Mr. Knightly". Charolotte grows up finally. Fast paced. Filled with laughable adventure,passion, and love. A must read especially if you enjoy laugh out loud situations as a young lady schemes. Follow,Lady Charlotte Brandon, and James Beauchamp,a younger son as he encounter a few of Lady Charlotte's schemes and a scandal. Fun read! Very relaxing read. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Above the Treeline.

Ah, thanks so much for the distraction. I can't believe you had me laughing (I'm recovery from some knee injections and can't move too much for the pain). Great short and a very nice hot little scene!
