Julian Delane, The Earl of Parkhurst, has an agenda and it includes finding and ruining the woman featured in a painting hanging in one of London’s most popular clubs.  The object of his obsession is more than just the woman – she is wearing a diamond necklace that was stolen from his father more than ten years ago.  With the necklace’s loss, Julian’s father’s demise, and everything his family has had to endure since, Julian is bound and determined to get to the bottom of the scandal once and for all so he can clear his father’s and his family’s reputation.  Now all he has to do is convince the model, Rebecca Leland, to cooperate.

During this time frame in history, scandal surrounding someone’s family was like an instant death sentence and it is with this such knowledge that Gayle Callen weaves an enticing story – one that kept me guessing the entire time I was reading it. I LOVE when that happens because I know that a lot of thought was put into the plot.  Besides having a great plot, In Pursuit of a Scandalous Lady has all the right elements to keep readers engaged and enjoying this wonderful start to what I am sure is going to be a highly successful trilogy!  Gayle Callen rocks the historical romance!
