After years of fighting on the continent Richard Ross has finally returned to London to makeeace with his father and the erotic delights of his stepmother’s Pleasure House rovide a welcome distraction for his war S for a while but Ms Pearce had me rooting for them by the end I do wish however that we d seen some of Violet and Richard s shared Stumble Into Love past since their love story in Simply Scandalous is built on the foundation of them having fallen in love years before Having seen at leastieces of their initial romance might have helped me connect with them earlier in the storySharing the spotlight with Violet and Richard are Ambrose the manager of the leasure house and Emily Richard s sister Ambrose and Emily s romance might be my favorite of the two love stories in Simply Scandalous Emily is the most sheltered member of her very unusual family but she knows what she wants from life and importantly who she wants and is willing to risk everything for love Ambrose in turn is a former slave who is uite clearly in love with Emily but believes that racism and the difference in their social classes means he doesn t have a chance with her It isn t an easy road to happily ever after for these two but Ms Pearce makes the journey well worth itSimply Scandalous is the ninth book in the House of Pleasure series Though it can be read as a standalone I don t recommend doing so Because of all the supporting characters and the sometimes complicated relationships in Simply Scandalous I recommend at least reading Simply Shameless the story of Philip Richard and Emily s father and Helene their stepmother and Simply Carnal the story of Christian Richard and Emily s half brother The backstories of the supporting characters in Simply Scandalous are helpful in understanding how they connect with Richard Emily and Ambrose The only downside to havin Simply Scandalous was a good ending to the House of Pleasure Series I must reface this review by saying that this book cannot be read as a stand alone Many of the minor characters are recurring and have had their own books in the series This book was about Richard Ross from the Ross Delornay family A retired spy that lost the love of his life a french loyalist who was shot in front of him in France Although things are not what they appear A man by the name of Vincent Lennox mysteriously shows up and reminds Richard Violet the love he lost Vincent is indeed Violet Now
