The Duke of Moreland had 10 children, each with their own trials and tribulations. I would advise reading the first 3 before reading Lady Maggie's story. There are a lot of recurring characters. Wonderfully written, I loved this book, although I didn't like Hazlitt at first. He seemed like a creep with a fetish for Maggie's hair. I loved Maggie and the Duchess, she was a good mother and my favourite character in this series.

I liked the way Lady Maggie's scandal was not revealed entirely at the onset. It kept you intrigued as you progressed through the story. What I really liked was reading about the male lead in this story: he was actually a kind, decent fellow that was actually not bad to look at. You like him very much as you got to know him. The story was well-written, well-edited, had a good pace. I enjoyed it. How it could be 5 stars instead of a 4 (which is still a very good read) is that there could have been more humour. As well, some of the conversations and actions resulting from Lady Maggie's dilemma didn't ring quite right for the era. Perhaps a little too pat; a little too rosy-viewed... But, then, we don't exactly read these types of books for historical accuracy do we?

Excellent characters and a touching romance May 1 2012
By Heather BookSavvyBabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The more I read by Grace Burrowes, the more attached I become to the Windham family. I read the first book in the Windham sister's series (Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish) late last year and met Maggie Windham. When the opportunity arose to read Maggie's book, I found that I was looking forward to learning more about this seemingly independent woman. I really enjoyed Maggie's story, she is a protective, loving woman who is willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of those she loves.

In Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal, Grace Burrowes has created an excellent historical romance with endearing characters and a touch of suspense. This romance read will draw readers in with an independent heroine, a determined hero, and an unexpected scandal.

Maggie Windham is the oldest daughter of a Duke, and a bastard at that. She comes from humble beginnings and her parentage affects her life's choices. When her reticule goes missing, Maggie hires Benjamin, an investigator, to help find her reticule and the damaging contents before scandal can come to her family. Maggie is very protective of her secrets and tells Benjamin the bare minimum needed to find her belongings. The more time Benjamin spends with Maggie, the more determined he is to discover her secrets and protect the woman who has become quite important to him.

I really liked Maggie as the heroine of this book. She is a woman full of contradictions, she is independent but lonely, loyal but secretive, brilliant and wealthy but leads a very modest lifestyle. She is also a beautiful woman, firmly "on the shelf" because of her age, but secretly she dreams of having a family of her own. She sacrifices all of her wants to protect her family, the Duke and Duchess and her siblings. She is very stubborn about protecting her family, almost to a fault. When Benjamin steps in and tries to help, her stubbornness to deal with scandals in a different way almost ruins her dreams. Thankfully, Benjamin is the perfect match for Maggie. He is brilliant in his own way, he has the ability to read people, situations, and uncover truths. The pair are an excellent couple and I loved reading their story.

Grace Burrowes writes a believable and enchanting story with Lady Maggie's Secret Scandals. While the characters are perfect for each other, they are not actually perfect characters. Maggie is sweet, smart, but overly stubborn. Benjamin is also a smart person, but he hides from his own family's problems. Through Maggie's story and the resolution to her problems, both characters have to confront their pasts to move forward. I was very happy how the story unfolded, and I find that I am very eager to read the next book in the series. I am become attached to the entire Windham family, with the protective brothers, caring parents, and the sisters whose actions are never predictable.

I highly recommend this entire Windham family series to historical romance readers. If you enjoy the familial nature of historical romances, such as Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, you will highly enjoy the Windham family series as well. Even though Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. Grace Burrowes does a wonderful job of describing the story and characters from previous books so that new readers will not be lost.

Too many inconsistencies Nov. 12 2012
By Jennifer Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The writing for the most part was crisp,speedy and interesting (until the fluff at the end). However, the period norms weren't followed, and that is always irritating. Regency era Dukes don't adopt their by-blows,and their daughters don't live on their own, run around unescorted, and earn their own income through money management. But the biggest disappointment was that 15 years of "secret scandal" could all have been avoided had the (money-genius financial manager) heroine been able to do some simple calculations. So, while the writing itself was good, there were too many misses to make this a recommended read.

Another "Home Run"!! May 1 2012
By bettysunflower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Grace Burrowes has hit another one out of the ballpark! The book starts out with a great "hook". "The BLIGHTED, BENIGHTED, BLASTED, PERISHING thing has to be in here somewhere." It would seem that Lady Maggie Windham, the natural (and adopted) daughter of the Duke of Moreland, has "misplaced" something that is very important and valuable to her. She hires an investigator to locate the item. Enter our tortured hero.... Mr Hazlit.
Much of the Windham family make appearances and some are major contributers in the plot that unfolds. There are a lot of twists and turns and enough action to keep the reader focused. Neither Mr. Hazlit or Maggie are looking for a romance, but it does seems to sneak up on them as they work together to solve the mystery of her missing item.
Ms. Burrowes has the ability to bring so much emotion into her writing. You can feel the turmoil or fear, frustration, loneliness, or passion that the character is feeling. As soon as I finish a Grace Burrowes book, I am looking for the next one to be released. (Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight is to be released October 2012)

A bit disappointed. June 6 2012
By Reader Lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read all of Grace Burrowes novels, and I've enjoyed all of them, but this is my least favorite. The story dragged for me until about 2/3 of the way into it. I did throughly enjoy the ending, and I will read the next one. This one seemed to have a lot of POVs, the duke, the duchess, Bridget, even the maid. I'm not used to that, but I will say it wasn't confusing.

Diverting March 22 2013
By anotherbibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fairly well written, and very well edited. Yes, it is a romance for adults. The "bedroom scenes" are graphic. I am not a great fan of romance novels, but I like the occasional quick read for entertainment. I was almost ready to dislike this book, but it was better than expected. As others have noted, it's not great literature and has inconsistencies including words that seem to be a glaring contrast to the language of that period. However, if you like racy trysts and contrived situations reaching toward a happy ending, you will enjoy this.
