A Matter of Some Scandal
by Daisy Banks

Category: Romance
Description: Sometimes scandal is worth more than its weight in gold. Love was folly, in Prudence Wellbourne's innocence. Now well-coined, sophisticated and wiser, she can easily live without it. But the one man who holds the key to her stubborn heart calls that belief into question.. Fifteen years has done nothing to cool Argyle Clairmonte's desire for Prudence. His reckless attempt to regain her love lands him in Newgate prison and the Bailey court. Only Prudence's public admission of the truth, despite the scandal it will bring, can save him from the bitter consequences of his foiled plans. Is hindsight the cure for love's recklessness? Prudence must find an eloquent answer, or watch Argyle swing from The Tyburn Tree. Content warning; Sensual historical romance with sensual sex scenes.

"You couldn't wait for me, Pru?" Argyle had asked. "You have thrown our love away. 'Tis the wickedest crime, and I'll make you repent it well. You wed the wrong man this day, my love." His mouth had plundered hers. The noon sun had grown dark above her, and the guests' chatter became silent. He'd cupped her face in his hands as his lips left hers, stared down at her. Tears had turned his image to a blur. "We'll meet again under moonlight, Prudence. I swear by my blood," he'd whispered, sending a thousand shivers through her, then strode away.

Thomas had stared after him. Her knees had given way. The women around her had shrieked, and her father caught her as she'd slid toward the ground.

Her bridal morn was the only time she'd ever fainted. And Argyle had caused it, the miserable worm.
