Présentation de l'éditeur

An idealistic suffragette...

Miss Frederica "Free" Marshall has put her heart and soul into her newspaper, known for its outspoken support of women's rights. Naturally, her enemies are intent on destroying her business and silencing her for good. Free refuses to be at the end of her rope...but she needs more rope, and she needs it now.

...a jaded scoundrel...

Edward Clark's aristocratic family abandoned him to die in a war-torn land, so he survived the only way he could: by becoming a rogue and a first-class forger. When the same family that left him for dead vows to ruin Miss Marshall, he offers his help. So what if he has to lie to her? She's only a pawn to use in his revenge.

...and a scandal seven years in the making.

But the irrepressible Miss Marshall soon enchants Edward. By the time he realizes that his cynical heart is hers, it's too late. The only way to thwart her enemies is to reveal his scandalous past...and once the woman he loves realizes how much he's lied to her, he'll lose her forever.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Teaspoon by teaspoon, those with courage and passion can change the world 18 juillet 2014
Par Danker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Did I think Milan could keep writing so well, to the end of this series? No.
Has she? Yes.
This series has been an absolute favourite.
The quality of Milan's writing, the scrumptiousness and empathy and emotional intelligence of the important male protagonists, the stunning strength and creativity and passion and social consciences of the female characters, together with the fabulous way in which Milan addresses issues of injustice and inequality seriously, without being didactic, all push this series to head and shoulders above nearly all of its competition.
I love this book. I love the story of the teaspoons. I love the dedication to those who stared down cruelty, threats and even violence to struggle for equality and justice for all.
And I enjoyed Milan's apology about the use of the term suffragettes. I am going to go looking, as women gained nationwide universal suffrage first in New Zealand and soon after in Australia, quite early in the piece, and the struggle had preceded this for decades and decades. I remember stumbling across some info about early suffragettes in South Australia, a State in Australia which introduced universal suffrage even before New Zealand. Many of these women were fierce warriors. One died in abject poverty and one, also now largely forgotten, was a woman who went in a demo in Britain in the 1820s, before migrating to continue the struggle for electoral reform in Aus. (The demo was about clothing. She, and the other demonstrators, were complaining about women's clothing and wore divided shirts in public - bloomers - in London. The response was outrage and even violence.) Maybe, maybe they used the term.
Don't get turned off. The Suffragette Scandal Is still essentially a romance. It is, however, a wonderful antidote to the superficial dross of many modern Regencies. It is a romance with intelligence as well as heart. Lovely.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I would give this book six stars if I could 17 juillet 2014
Par Malin Engdahl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Frederica "Free" Marshall used the money she inherited from a reclusive aunt to put herself through college and establish a newspaper "by women, for women, about women". Her first story was an expose of the horrible conditions in a naval lock hospital, an asylum of sorts where they kept prostitutes suspected of venereal disease. She bravely and stubbornly continues to employ women and publish her paper, even though she receives offensive letters, abuse and death treats on a weekly basis. Recently, it's become clear that someone has access to the articles before they are published, and is making it look like the Women's Free Press is just copying from other male-run publications. Someone is determined to ruin Free's life's work.

Enter, Edward Clark, liar, forger, blackmailer and scoundrel extraordinaire. He offers to help Free, claiming he wants revenge on the man who's out to destroy her. What Free doesn't know is that the man who is behind the plot to discredit her and her newspaper is Edward's younger brother, and that Edward Clark was in fact born Edward Delacey, and now that his father is dead, he is actually Viscount Claridge. His brother is none to happy to see him return, as Edward's been gone for nearly seven years, just long enough to have him declared dead, so James can become the Viscount instead. Edward promises that his brother can have the title, he just wants to make sure that Stepehen Shaughnessy, his childhood friend, isn't ruined along with Miss Marshall's newspaper. Of course, Edward's father and younger brother both left him for dead in a war-torn France nine years ago, so Edward feels absolutely no loyalty or connection to them. The Shaughnessy brothers, however, his oldest friends, and Miss Marshall, who is quickly worming her way into his affections, he is willing to use all his devious and underhanded ways to help.

As Edward and Free work together to foil James Delacey's plots against her, they naturally grow closer, and Free discovers that while Edward may lie, cheat, be an expert forger and blackmailer, he's also a genuinely good man deep down, but has been mistreated by the world for the longest time, and believes himself not only incapable of love but wholly undeserving of being loved or even trusted. Of course, Edward knows that if Free ever discovered who he really is, and who his brother is, she will no longer great him with a beaming smile, but hate him forever.

I love Courtney Milan. This is no secret. I rate her book Unraveled among the best romances I've ever read. Well, that book has just been knocked off its top spot, because as far as I'm concerned, The Suffragette Scandal is her crowning achievement. As anyone who has been following my blog, or checked out my Goodreads ratings, I've never rated a Milan-book or novella lower than three stars. This book makes me want to break the ratings system, because it deserves six. All the other books of hers that I've rated five stars have little things that niggle and annoy me. This book is flawless. There is a secondary romance involving Free's best friend, Lady Amanda, the niece of Violet from The Countess Conspiracy which is so subtly and cleverly done that I was honestly wondering if I was reading too much into things to begin with, and whether my mind was creating a romance where there was none. I don't want to spoil anything, but bits involving Lady Amanda had me sobbing on a public bus because I was so moved, and I cheered out loud when the story finally reached its very satisfying conclusion.

Frederica Marshall is Oliver Marshall's little sister and in previous books in the series, she struck me as rather abrasive and annoying. Of course, that Free was an opinionated teenager. This Free is twenty-seven, college educated and tempered by the massive challenges of being a progressive woman in a society that wants women to be seen as ornaments and help meets, not heard and given equal say or footing as men. All grown up, Free Marshall is a force to be reckoned with. I wish she'd be my friend, even though she'd be a bit too outspoken and keep frustratingly thrusting herself into danger for my tastes. She's not flawless, she knows that she's bossy and opinionated, and speaking rashly without thinking can hurt the people she loves dearly. She doesn't publish her newspaper solely to convince men that they are wrong about women, she's doing it to inform and empower women.

Love is too small a word for what I feel for Edward. I'm not sure there are words in any of the languages I speak (English, Swedish, Norwegian and a smattering of German, if anyone was interested) to describe how I feel about Edward. He's so guarded, and cynical and has been beaten down so much by the world and the cruelty of men that he has trouble believing in anyone or anything. He sees the world in terms of how he can take advantage of it, and gain as much as possible for himself. Free sees the world in terms of how she can improve it for the most people and make it a better place in future. They are so different, yet both so sharp and clever and lonely. Their banter is absolutely divine. Their second meeting involves Edward trying to blackmail Free, only to have her turn around and blackmail him more successfully. Their romance is seemingly impossible, but of course they find a happy ending, and the romantic gesture from Edward at the end had me in tears, again.

This book made me laugh, and cry, and swoon, and ruined me so much for other books that instead of being able to read anything else, I just had to start re-reading this book again, only more slowly, so I could properly savour the plot, characters and writing. I don't think there's a single chapter where I haven't highlighted at least one section or quote or small dialogue exchange. I was lucky enough to get an ARC, so I could read the book four days early. That means I've now been fortunate enough to read the book twice, only a day after it's released. Courtney Milan self-publishes, so consider buying her book if you can. Otherwise, find it at your local library or just read it in a book store, and rate it honestly on all forms of social media. Get the word out if you like it. If I haven't convinced you by now that you want to read this book, you are clearly a person who doesn't like good writing. Courtney Milan is not a romance writer, she is an excellent writer who just happens to be writing in the romance genre. Please give this book a try!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It takes an incredibly secure and strong man to love a woman like this and no one writes these ... 18 juillet 2014
Par Stephanie Patterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The first law of heros is that they must be heroic. While Milan's 'Brother's Sinister' series has always followed that law, the author thankfully re-wrote it to say "heroines must be heroic as well." Her women operate from the gut. Their wit, laugher and pain is spilled across the page and we, as readers greedily grab every word. Are they always right? No, but they recognize their own fallibility and instead of another character having to lambast them for being human, they figure their issue out themselves through personal growth. While her heroines get into scrapes, or have tragedies in their past, we never witness their abuse as storyline payback for their wanting more out of life than tea parties and waltzes.

It takes an incredibly secure and strong man to love a woman like this and no one writes these men better than Ms.Milan. Edward is the perfect counterpoint to Free. He has rebuilt himself after the worst betrayal a family can perpetuate on one of it's own, but the cost of his survival was his ability to allow his own spirit soar and imagine positive possibilities in an imperfect world. Edward can only grasp at stolen moments of contentment. He no longer trusts himself where other people are concerned because he is his own unforgiving critic and what he wants will surely be snatched away. In Free he finds the young idealist from his own past and he will do whatever is necessary to protect her.

Free, who has intrigued readers throughout this series, bedazzles and enchants us from her first appearance to the close of the story. She is unflinchingly honest about her feelings and her desires. No apologies. She does not belabor points, nor does she skirt issues. No whining, no wrist against the forehead and in no place in this novel does she, or any character for that matter, wallow in angst. I'm a hardened romance reader and writer and Ms. Milan gave me more than one opportunity to wipe my eyes and swallow around the lump in my throat. This is a brilliant conclusion to a 'keeper' series. To Courtney Milan, I say, " Well done, you!"

Oh.My.God. I just finished the book and am reeling! What a wonderful rollercoaster ride! I love the feminisim and the dry wit and the exchanges between Free and Edward and the side story of Amanda and Genevieve. Off to check on more of Courtney Milans' books now. . . *wanders off mumbling*. . .

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Huzzah! Courtney Milan! Could have been 5 stars... 29 juillet 2014
Par jl47 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I think this book could have been one of my all time favorites, it really could. The relationship and dialogue between Free and Edward was sharp, witty, and snapping with that special something that most other author's can't come close to achieving. I held my breath through the entire scene of their almost first kiss, and didn't realize it until my lungs started burning. The relationship between them was written so well, and I could name several scenes like this that literally took my breath away, thimble speech included. Courtney Milan always delivers in this regard, and I have read everything she has ever published. However, I just think this one was lacking in a certain subtlety when it came to the political and social issues. It had a certain preachy and condescending quality and that detracted from the other more excellent parts of the book. As for the secondary romance, I am generally not a fan, irregardless of the sexual orientation of the characters. They usually come off as distracting to me, especially when they are a blatant pitch for the next book in the series (which this one was not, although I wondered for a while). If they are seamlessly woven into, and add to the plot, I can enjoy them. I didn't feel like this one added anything to Free and Edward's story and, again, felt a bit like an adjunct social argument.

Milan doesn't shy away from tough issues, and this is what I generally love about her books. They aren't your typical Regency romance, and that is a very good thing! It just felt like she went a little too far with this one, and I would guess that with most of her readers, she is giving a sermon to the choir, so to speak.
