Lady Evelyn Darlington’s first love was the law. But since a woman scholar meets nothing but ridicule from men, she has given up and chosen a future husband. Randolph seems adequate for the task: to provide intelligent conversation and not annoy her too much. Of course, before they can be engaged, she’ll have to do something about the murder charge hanging over his head. If only London’s top barrister wasn’t Jack Harding, object of all her unattainable girlhood fantasies. . .
And Seducing Scandal. . .
Jack Harding remembers Evelyn well—but the idea that the gorgeous woman standing before him is little Evie, the professor’s daughter, is incredible. He knows better than to enter a business relationship when he wants to pursue pleasure. Yet however desirable she is now, Evie is still Evie—stubborn, smart, and never willing to take no for an answer. Even though proving her fiance’s innocence might just cost her her own. . .
Review: In The Barrister’s Chambers was definitely a delight to read. It had an engaging storyline along with murder intrigue that kept me guessing until the end. There is also great character development. I enjoyed getting to know both Jack and Evelyn as they were very likeable characters. They are folks that I’d have enjoyed getting to know in real life. As for Randolph, he’s not an unlikeable character by any means but I would definitely agree with Jack when he thought “He is just a boy; what she needs is a man.” Evelyn is a strong, independent woman and it’s obvious she would dominate in any relationship with Randolph. Jack and Evelyn however have great chemistry and work very well together as a team. Jack is a much better match for Evelyn.The interaction with the other 3 barristers was great. They were amusing, charming and flirtatious. I look forward to reading the rest of their stories and can’t wait until the next one is released in September, 2012.
