Scandal in the Night

A Breath of Scandal

  • ROMANTIC TIMES rates A BREATH OF SCANDAL 4 1/2 stars:
    “Essex’s second Reckless Bride certainly suits the title. The bold heroine easily wins readers’ hearts, along with her officer and gentleman hero. Essex brings a breath of fresh and funny air to the Regency while her stylish writing and intelligent characters appeal to hearts and minds. Pure, delicious, sexy pleasure awaits readers.”
  • FRESH FICTION on A BREATH OF SCANDAL:
    “There are books that fill me with happiness and comfort, a sense that everything will work out because there are truly good people in the world. Jane Austen and Julia Quinn come to mind when I think of authors who can capture the amazing humanity of everyday people, and now I can also count Elizabeth Essex among my favorites.”And “The characters, the setting, and the relationships that bind them all together create a world of staggering beauty, filled with heartache, hope, and love. People are flawed, but Essex has created a world that highlights why romance is important and why people all over the world want happily ever after.”
  • “Creating two very strong‑willed characters and a mouthwatering romance, Ms. Essex has penned a deliciously compelling and heartwarming story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.” Lauren Calder

Almost a Scandal

  • PUBLISHER’s WEEKLY’s “By Her Book” by Barbara Vey: Review of ALMOST A SCANDAL:
    “Almost a Scandal is a bold and brazen fast paced romance with a daring heroine and smoldering hot hero! With an explosive danger and red-hot romance this book is most definitely a book to treasure!”
  • ROMANTIC TIMES on ALMOST A SCANDAL: 4 1/2 Stars and a TOP PICK
    “Essex will have readers longing to set sail alongside her daring heroine and dashing hero. This wild ride of a high seas adventure/desire-in-disguise romance has it all: nonstop action, witty repartee and deft plotting. From the bow to the mast, from battles to ballrooms, Essex delivers another reckless bride and another read to remember.”

    Almost a Scandal was my first experience with an Elizabeth Essex story, however with such dynamic characters and with a growing understanding of the places she puts them, it certainly won’t be my last.” Sara Anne Elliot
  • FRESH FICTION on ALMOST A SCANDAL:
    “Elizabeth Essex has created a fascinating world peopled with fascinating characters. I didn’t want this story to end and with the promise of more books in this series, it doesn’t have to. ALMOST A SCANDAL is a joy to read.”
  • ELOSIA JAMES’s monthly “Reading Romance” Column at Barnes & Noble on ALMOST A SCANDAL:
    “Almost a Scandal eschews the balls, gowns, and clever conversation that characterize most Regency romances. But the love affair between Sally Kent, midshipman, and David Colyear, lieutenant, is utterly engrossing and (once Sally and David are sent on a mission to engage the French navy) thrilling as well.”
  • SINGLE TITLES:
    “Elizabeth Essex paints a vivid picture of life aboard a British Royal Navy vessel.”

The Danger of Desire

  • ALL ABOUT ROMANCE Review of THE DANGER OF DESIRE:“There is something distinctive and gorgeous about Ms. Essex’s writing—I can’t think of any other writer whose prose is as languorously specific as hers. The Danger of Desire … is a transcendently pleasurable book to read.”http://www.likesbooks.com/cgi-bin/bookReview.pl?BookReviewId=8849
