The Scandal in Kissing an Heir: At the Kingsborough Ball
Shootings, stabbings, stalkers and scandal livened up the plot in Sophie Barnes’ latest Kingsborough Ball installment. When Rebecca borrows a dress from a friend and slips into the Kingsborough Ball in secret, she plans to find a marriage-worthy man. Instead, she catches the eye of Daniel Neville, a notorious rake.
Rebecca wants to be able to choose her husband, but her aunt and uncle want her to marry a man 50 years her senior for financial gain. Daniel’s uncle threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t reform and marry a proper lady. Daniel whisks Rebecca away from her soon-to-be fiancé, and the pair elopes. The rest of the book depicts the newlyweds’ struggle to get to know one another and earn their place back into society after the scandal of their elopement.
The Scandal in Kissing an Heir was fast-paced and had much more going on plot-wise than its predecessor, The Trouble with Being a Duke. Daniel and Rebecca struggle with their finances, while a sinister antagonist stabs Daniel and leaves him for dead in an alley. The mystery, combined with the romance, makes for a varied, well-rounded and exciting read.
