Scandal can be handled...

Captain Maximus Harcourt, the unconventional tenth Duke of Alderidge, can deal with tropical storms, raging seas, and the fiercest of pirates. But he's returned home from his latest voyage to find a naked earl—quite inconveniently deceased—tied to his missing sister's bed. And he has only one place to turn. Now he's at the mercy of the captivating Miss Ivory Moore of Chegarre & Associates, known throughout London for smoothing over the most dire of scandals.

Miss Moore treats the crisis as though it were no more serious than a cup of spilt tea on an expensive rug. As though this sort of thing happened on the job every day. Max has never in all his life met a woman with such nerve. Her dark eyes are too wide, her mouth is too full, her cheekbones too sharp. Yet together, she's somehow...flawless. It's just like his love for her, imperfect, unexpected—yet absolutely true.

Quick Thoughts: I love Kelly Bowen so I have come to expect the unexpected from her. Ivory Moore was unexpected and the story was delightful. However, it took me a good long while (aka 3/4 of the book) to think Max was even in the realm of being worthy of her (source of the character rating). She was so unusual, self-sufficient, smart, quirky that I had a hard time seeing forever with Max. I got there though and that is all that matters. The story though was kick arse. I had a blast watching Ivory really work the case. Kelly wrote another leading lady that we can totally get behind and I think y’all will like it.

Audio Thoughts:

Ashford does a fantastic job with this series. There is a lot of different voices in this series: kids, high born, low born, soldiers, sailors and the narration really hits on all levels.
