This is the first book in The Shelley Sisters series.
The brand new series from 10-Time USA Today Bestselling author Jess Michaels!
When the Jasper Kincaid, the Earl of Harcourt, offered to marry one of the infamous Shelley triplets, he was doing it for the dowry to refill his depleted coffers, not for anything so silly as love. But when he realizes it is Thomasina Shelley masquerading as his fiancée at their final engagement ball, not his true intended, a desire for her that he has been ignoring sparks. And when it becomes clear her sister has run away with another, an opportunity arises for a marriage with a much deeper connection.
Thomasina’s feelings for Jasper have never been appropriate and she doubted the prudence of pretending to be his even for just one night. Once she’s caught, everything escalates so quickly. Suddenly she’s going to marry this stern, fascinating man who is not particularly pleased at her perfidy. Add to that her worry about where her wayward sister has gone and it’s a recipe for both passion…and disaster.
As the two slowly grow closer, Jasper realizes his former fiancée’s disappearance may have more to do with his own past than he originally realized. And the longer he keeps that from Thomasina, the more painful it will be when the truth comes out. Can they let each other close enough to fight together against the dangers right around the corner? And will they survive to meet the future they could have if they do?

Once she’s caught, everything escalates very quickly. Suddenly she’s going to marry this stern, fascinating man who is not particularly pleased at her perfidy. Lies and pretence escalate as this unlikely pair falls more deeply for each other.I loved this first book in this new series featuring the Shelley triplets.Will all three girls find love in the end or will there be disaster too?
Once I started reading I couldn’t put this book down.I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars. I would’ve given it a solid 5 if not for the taste of the next book in the epilogue. To me an epilogue is a continuation of what happens to the couple in this story instead of a taste of what’s to come.I received a complimentary ARC from the Author/publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Finding out that her husband was a bigamist didn’t devastate Portia Stefani; she held her head high when she forced him out of her life. But losing her beloved music school as a result of the traitorous bastard’s gambling debts almost destroyed her. The only way she’ll be able to make ends meet is to accept a lucrative tutoring position in remote Cornwall. What Portia hasn’t anticipated is the life-altering impact that her mesmerizing new employer has on her.
Stacy Harrington learned the hard way to keep people at a distance. Playing the piano is the only thing that makes his solitary life enjoyable these days, and he’ll be damned if he allows his albinism to keep him from everything he loves. Bringing a private music tutor into his home is disruptive, but it’s the only solution. Unfortunately, nothing could have prepared him for the overwhelming attraction he feels toward his fiery new employee.
It’s not long before a shared passion for music develops into something infinitely deeper. But when ghosts from the past—along with some very dark secrets—emerge to threaten everything they’ve built, can Stacy and Portia continue to make beautiful music together? Or will their happily ever after end on a painful, discordant note?
Praise for Minerva Spencer’s Outcasts series:
“Minerva Spencer’s writing is sophisticated and wickedly witty. Dangerous is a delight from start to finish with swashbuckling action, scorching love scenes, and a coolly arrogant hero to die for. Spencer is my new auto-buy!”
-NYT Bestselling Author Elizabeth Hoyt
“[SCANDALOUS is] A standout…Spencer’s brilliant and original tale of the high seas bursts with wonderfully real protagonists, plenty of action, and passionate romance.”
-Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
