Synopsis from Goodreads:

Sophie Russell was once society’s darling. But after the disgrace and death of her father, she now finds all doors firmly shut to her—including those of her family home. To discover the secrets now hidden within its beloved walls, she’ll pose as a cook and spy on the estate’s new owner, a broodingly handsome viscount, who may have schemed against the Russells. Instead of dishing up the truth, the viscount tempts Sophie with delicacies of his own…

Viscount Griffiths suspects that there is more to his new cook than meets the eye—especially since it was a mistress he hired sight unseen, not a cook. With the hope that her passion in the kitchen will extend to his bedchamber, he humors the beautiful interloper. But when that passion burns to brightest love, revelations may shake both of their wary hearts…

The final sensuous book in the Scandal at the House of Russell trilogy will lay the truth bare.

My Review:

This was definitely a very original story. Stuart took me on a wild ride that I couldn`t (and didn`t want to) escape from. I will admit, I was a little worried for the first half dozen chapters, wondering where the story was going, but when the story took off Stuart and her characters had my complete attention. This world was brought to life in a vividly realistic manner, taking readers back in time. Lust, suspense, and romance all vie for a place in this remarkable tale.

This is one of those remarkable stories that is taken to another level by the characters. Stuart develops a remarkable couple for us to fall in love with. Their antics are endearing and make them very human. The misconceptions that they have about one another are heightened by the fact that only the reader knows it. It’s a heady mix when brought together.

As a whole, this was an endearing tale that I could barely get enough of. I’ll definitely be re-reading it & looking into more works by this author.
