He is the next Marquis of Wolvington…
She is a lady with nothing but beauty and wits…
Together they share a forbidden kiss.

Lady Rebecca is determined to find a husband on her own terms, rather than marry any of the aging suitors her greedy aunt and uncle foist upon her. Her chance comes at the Kingsborough Ball, where she meets several potential grooms…yet no one compares to the dangerously handsome Daniel Neville.

Daniel Neville, notorious rake and heir to the Marquis of Wolvington, is in need of a bride, but finding a lady who’s willing to accept his past, is an entirely different matter. When he spies a stunning woman across the ballroom, Daniel believes he’s found her…until scandal erupts around them. How can he convince Rebecca to take a chance on him…and on the love that could be theirs forever after?

My Review
Daniel Neville is a rake and spends most of his time gambling, carousing and spending his money and family heirlooms on his mistress. His uncle gives him a ultimatum, that he has one month to find a wife or he will cut him off completely financially. So he attends a masquerade ball, looking for a woman who he can marry. Then he sees a woman that captures his attention, a woman with black hair, tan skins, and a scarlet red dress that makes his blood boil. After finding her alone in a corner, he finds that she is everything he could have dreamed of for a future wife. She is passionate, sweet and in need of a hero. Rebecca, is under the guardianship of her aunt and uncle who are practically trying to sell her to the highest bidder. But when she meets Daniel, she knows she wants him to be her husband but she is being placed in a situation that keep her from going to him. However Daniel plans on rescuing the damsel in distress that needs to be rescued. But he will have to make a decision that could change his life.

The Scandal in Kissing An Heir is a fun and charming love story set in Regency England. I was able to receive a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. This is the first that I have read Sophia Barnes, and I read this book under a few hours, surprisingly and I enjoyed it quite a bit. This book actually turned out to be much better than I even expected. I found this story to be intriguing and fun and very sensual at times. The descriptions that are placed into the story were vividly real and I enjoyed seeing the style of the way this author creates a story. This book starts out with this couple first meeting at a ball, and they have a instant connection. Even though there is a bit of a rival for Rebecca that Daniel is faced with, it soon becomes clear that Rebecca only wants Daniel. Then he learns about who she truly is and then Daniel and Rebecca are thrown together in a scandal, and soon they will have to learn to trust in each other.

I couldn't help but enjoy this entertaining ride this story has taken me on. I found the writing to be unique and with a sense of freshness to it. There was so much going for this book that I enjoyed. From the first page, I was completely drawn in, and even though it didn't rate a high 5 rating, I found it to be a enjoyable story that you can relax into. It had many elements that made it a brilliantly well written love story that makes you root for this couple from the beginning. Overall I couldn't help but love The Scandal In Kissing An Heir  and with a sweet mixture of romance, sensual setting, and characters to make you feel alive.....this story will charm and delight you till the very last page. REMARKABLE!!! I can't wait to try more of this author, definitely going to be bumped up my list!!
