This review is only on the Samantha James story (Scandal's Bride. (It's been forever since I read the KEW story).
This was a cute short story. I read it because I wanted to read the "sequel" to this story about the hero, Miles', young ward. This is a story about two people forced to marry due to the rash actions of the heroine. I liked how Victoria wasn't too stubborn and admitted to what was her fault. Miles was a bit more stubborn and it took sometime for him to open up to the possibility of a relationship with Victoria.
It was a nice short read with a sweet love scene. I loved Victoria's interactions with young Heather. I think SJ does a good job of the stepmother/daughter/son relationship. It's done very sweetly.
Good quick read. Heather's book is Every Wish Fulfilled which I am reading right now!
