2014; 384 Pages

Rating: ★★★★

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

I have enjoyed Anne Barton's previous historical romances because of her mix of romance and humour.  Scandalous Summer Nights is no different.  Lady Olivia Sherbourne is the elder of Owen's younger sisters and also the one he cannot get to follow the rules of society.  Olivia has been in love with her older brother's friend James Averill for 10 years and she had made it her mission to get him to finally notice her as a woman.  James has always found her attractive but his loyalty to his friend has kept him from looking at Olivia in any other way.  To ensure nothing does happen he leaves the city to only have Olivia follow him.  Now James is doing everything to make sure he gets Olivia back home wit her good repetition, and Olivia is doing everything to get herself in a compromising situation with James...let the summer games begin.

I have liked Olivia since we were first introduced to her in book one and am glad she and James finally get their story.  Olivia is a strong and funny heroine that has you on her side cheering her on.  James is her match in that he wants her but has to remain gentlemanly so makes it fun to watch him squirm.  We also get to see how Annabel and Owen's relationship is progressing and more eager to see sweet Rose's story.
