Revealing the true love of her life! The thrilling conclusion to the Season of Scandal series!

Lady Meg’s parents decide that the best solution to the scandal breaking over her head, is to marry her to her old childhood friend, Harry. Meg will not allow it. Instead, she persuades Harry to take her secretly to her twin sister’s house in Kent to ride out the storm.

Captain Lord Harry de Vere, a brave and dashing veteran of the Peninsular war, has never forgotten the enchanting playmate who once won his heart and rejected him. He is happy to enter one more adventure with her, though he has no intention of falling in love with her again.

But this is Meg, and inevitably their simple plan is quickly complicated. Her sister Martha is mysteriously missing. Her brother-in-law. Lord Calvert, talks her into masquerading as Martha – which might have been more amusing had she not once been Martha’s rival for Calvert’s heart and hand.

But Lord Barden, the architect of the scandal that was supposed to ruin four innocent young women, is expected for Martha’s masked ball. Meg and Harry prepare to bring him down once and for all – and invite the other three ladies and their new husbands to assist.

Will Barden finally get his just desserts? And will Meg’s feelings finally be unmasked by the man she never wanted to love?


Lady Meg Winters is one of four innocent young women with the same scandal breaking over them.  Her father has his idea of how to solve her problem and protect her reputation, but she doesn't agree.  She is going do things her way,  with the help of an old friend and her twin sister. 
Captain Lord Harry De Vere is back from the war against Napoleon. He was wounded and has a task to perform for a dead comrade, but gets delayed by an old friend.  
This is the last book in a series of four and if you are reading the full series,  it should be read in order.  You could read each book on it's own and thoroughly enjoy them,  but the dastardly villian works his way through each story, getting more dangerous as he goes.  There is much more to this story than just that villian.  Our heroine has a very hectic,  but strangely enjoyable few weeks to get through.  Our hero faces many challenges not the least of these battling his own desires.  
Wonderful characters on a fun-filled adventure. 
I loved it. 


Mary Lancaster's first love was historical fiction. Since then she has grown to love coffee, chocolate, red wine and black and white films - simultaneously where possible. She hates housework.

As a direct consequence of the first love, she studied history at St. Andrews University, after which she worked variously as editorial assistant, researcher and librarian. Although she has always written stories for her own entertainment, she began to make serious efforts toward publication in order to distract herself from a job she disliked. She now writes full time at her seaside home in Scotland, which she shares with her husband and three children.
