A Breath of Scandal is author Connie Mason’s second novel of the Sin Trilogy.

In this novel we have Lord Julian Thornton, Earl of Mansfield and a half gypsy and daughter of the Earl of Stanhope, Lady Lara.

Julian is only an earl half the time, the other half he is a secret government agent determined to find vengeance for his dead wife who was killed by a man dubbed the Jackal that he has been hunting for years, and he will not rest until he finds him.

Close to finding the Jackal now then his cover is blown when secret information of his presence there is somehow obtained by the Jackal and he barely get away alive, he would have been dead had he not washed up on sore in Scotland and the beautiful Lara not taken him to her grandmother, and then calmed him as husband before the other Rom when the men after him came to look for him.

Lara is instantly drawn to the man who she found washed up on shore and when men come looking for him she claims him without thought to the future, only that she could not let them harm or take the man who she and the Rom come to call Drako.

Soon though Julian must leave and though she knew it was coming and that she would have to leave for her father soon anyways, she can not help but mourn his leaving as she had come to love him, even though he was a virtual stranger to her.

Julian is glad to be leavening as he does not want to put the Rom people in anymore danger than he already has, though at the same time, he does not want to leave Lara, she makes him feel a fiery passion he has never felt before not even with his now dead fiancée. He knows they can never have a relation ship, her gypsy heart would wither in London and he, as an Earl could never wed her.

They are both more than shocked when they find each other in London at Lara’s coming out party and Julian decides to take her as a wife as he realizes he took dishonored an Earl’s daughter, Lara wont have a marriage without love though and refuses him.

Before long danger comes staking Julian once again, and all those he care for.

I have to say that I enjoyed this novel much more than I did the first book A Taste of Sin which featured Julian’s little brother, Sinjun.

Lara and Julian’s relationship was just as passionate sexually as Sinjun’s and Christy’s but I think the relationship as a whole, leavening out the sexual parts, went a lot better than Sinjun’s.

Lara loved Julian from the start and though Julian does not admit his love for he, you could tell that he did care for her, he was just not ready to let go of the guilt he felt for his fiancĂ©es death yet. But when the Jackal set’s his sights on Lara, he does whatever it takes to protect her.

The only thing that bothered me was Lara believing she knew Julian did not love her she was constantly saying she knew that he did not and true he told her he did not want love once or twice but still after all he does for her still she insists he does not and when he tries to tell her she will not let him get the words out and instead make sup a stupid ‘test’ for him to prove his love. Altogether tough I did really like the novel.

I would recommend this novel to anyone that is looking for a good historical romance read.
