About the Book

Some liaisons are more dangerous than others.

The Spy who loved her.

Assuming a false identity as a prim and proper governess, the bold and beautiful Cat Rowan thinks she has finally escaped the wild misadventures of her past—and the wickedly handsome spy who seduced her in India. Imagine her surprise when her employer introduces his brother: the very same cad who destroyed her heart!

The One who got away.

The Honorable Thomas Jellicoe cannot believe his eyes when he sees his beloved Cat—the Scottish beauty who nearly jeopardized his mission in India. Disguised as a horse trader from the bazaars of the Punjab, the British spy risked his life for one night of passion in her arms. But here and now—breaking all rules of decorum—one heated kiss ignites a flurry of gunfire. For their enemies have followed them home. And love is the greatest danger of all…

What They're Saying

“Essex has taken her Reckless Brides on some unique adventures, delivering a fresh take on the Regency era. Full of romance, adventure, sensuality and mystery, and set against a lush backdrop, Scandal in the Night immerses readers in a nonstop story. Flashbacks enhance the plot, adding depth to the characters and the slowly unfolding mystery until readers are flying through the pages to uncover the truth and see the lovers united.”

~ ROMANTIC TIMES: 4 1/2 Stars

“SCANDAL IN THE NIGHT delivers a fast-paced adventure, filled with sexual tension in the beautiful setting of India. Cat and Thomas’ romance unfolds over time and continents with the perfect balance of sensuality and tenderness. Like all of Essex’s work, the romance is built upon more than lust and need. Her romances restore my belief in romance itself.”
