Heir To Scandal by Andrea Laurence is the third part in the Secrets of Eden series. I feel the previous books should be read first to get a better understanding of the story because there are many elements in the story which connect with the previous books.
Scandals and secrets make any romance enjoyable and this book was no exception, I loved the whole concept and the flow of the story. The romance was steamy and the main characters had pretty good chemistry among themselves. Xander is a mature, responsible and honorable hero whose best quality is that he never runs away from his responsibilities. This is a trait I highly admire and therefore Xander was an absolute treat to read. Rose is a single mother who has tried her best to give her son everything she can. She was a great mother and a sweet person overall.
There is a cliffhanger ending which left me really frustrated and excited for the next book in the series where hopefully everything would be cleared up.
Overall Heir To Scandal by Andrea Laurence is a well written romance and another wonderful addition to the eden series. If you are a fan of this series, this book is a must read.
“Yes, you have a son.”
