Liza interview the book Only Scandal Will Do by Jenna Jaxon

Today, I'm interviewing Only Scandal Will Do.

Peep Rep: Hold on! You've already read this book! You even gave it a 5 Star Review.  You called it a fabulous story-well worth reading.  You also said Jenna pulls in a suspense thriller ending that was clever, well-executed and satisfying.

Liza: Yes, I really loved the book.

Peep Rep: So why are we interviewing it?

Liza: Because, for some reason, not everyone has bought the book. So I want to give those who missed it before another chance to come to their senses.  

Peep Rep: Oh look the book is arriving by carriage!

Liza: Scandal, so nice of you to visit, my friend.

Scandal: Liza, thank you for the invitation. Always glad to visit you.

Peep Rep: What about me? Are you glad to visit me?

Liza: Hush Peep Rep, you're making a bad first impression. 

Peep Rep: Sorry. My bad.

Liza: Scandal, I understand there are a few people who have yet to read your book.

Scandal: *pages ruffle* Sadly, that is the case.

Liza: Then let us correct their misfortune. I believe Jenna wrote you a fabulous blog to go along with the fabulous story.

Scandal: But be warned. It begins with a question.  I know you hate being asked questions you don't know the answer to.

Peep Rep: But if the answer is in the book, she will know the answer, because she's already read it!

Liza: Peep Rep is correct, so state your question without apology.

Scandal: All right.

He has the woman of his dreams, but what price will he have to pay to win her heart?

Peep Rep: Do you know the answer, Liza?

Liza: Indeed, I do. But all I will say is at times it appeared no price could win her heart. 

Peep Rep: Whew! Tell us more Scandal and provide some visuals. We love pictures.


Scandal: Gladly.
Kidnapped and sold at auction in a London brothel, Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam squelches an undeniable attraction to the masked stranger who purchased her, pits her wits against him, and escapes him and the scandal that would ruin her life.

Unable to resist temptation in a London brothel, Duncan Ferrers, Marquess of Dalbury, purchases a fiery beauty. She claims she's a lady, but how can she be? No lady of his acquaintance in polite society is anything like her. Then he discovers she is who she says, and that this latest romp has compromised her reputation.

Peep Rep: Oh, oh.

Scandal: Big Oh, oh. One more scandal and he'll be cast out of London society, but he needs a wife who'll provide an heir to carry on his illustrious family's name. He seeks out Katarina, intending only to scotch the scandal, but instead finds his heart ensnared.
He's betting their future he'll capture her heart, but does he have what it
takes to win the wager?

WARNING: A blade-wielding heroine who crosses swords with a master of sensuality.

Peep Rep: Oh, now I want to read it again!

Liza: Me too. May we have another peek beneath your covers?

Scandal: With pleasure.


“Who are you, sir?” Katrina asked.

“Your master, slave.”
Harsh words cloaked in a voice of deep velvet. A shiver of dread raced down Katarina’s body, as much from the words as from his tone. “I am nobody’s slave,” she replied, trembling. “There has been a dreadful mistake.”
“I think not, my lovely. I paid a small fortune for your ownership this evening. Make no mistake.” He continued to stroke her hair and she twisted her head to the side. His mouth below the half mask twitched into an insolent smile. “I am pleased that you possess courage as well as beauty.” His fingers touched her cheek. “The mask hid the slave’s wealth well.”
She jerked away. “You may have paid for a slave, sir, but what you find in this room is a lady in distress. Will you prove a gentleman or a rogue?”
“A lady in distress?” He laughed and straightened. “How did a lady come to find herself on display at an auction, scandalously clad in a transparent Greek costume, in Madame Vestry’s House of Pleasure?”
“House of Pleasure?” she squeaked.

“Where else would such a thing occur?” The man’s amusement deepened.“And there will certainly be pleasure here tonight, slave.”

Peep Rep: Oh yes, now I remember why she thought she hated him. She'd told him the truth and he hadn't believed her.

Liza: No he did not, and I can speak for my kind in this matter, we do not like having our words ignored or worse, discarded as lies.

Peep Rep: But he did apologize, right, Scandal?

Scandal: He did. Here is his apology:


“I assure you, there was never a night like that before.” Lord Dalbury spoke quietly, and Katarina sensed a tension in him. “I had never done such a thing before. Never participated in such an auction. Never tried to take a woman unwillingly to my bed.” He stopped speaking. Just stopped. Then his breath hissed as though he’d slowly released it.

“I cannot find the words to tell you how deeply I regret I was not a better man that night.” He paused, and she held still and waited. “What I tried to do was madness, without thought, without honor. I do not even have an excuse other than my base desires, and that your abundant charms overwhelmed me.” His face was shadowy in the scarce light of the sickle moon, but he sounded contrite. “I have no right to ask for your forgiveness. I have no right to expect it. But I would ask you to allow me to attempt to remedy the situation.”



Liza: Man, I forgot exactly how good this book is.

Peep: Can we give it six stars this time?

Liza: Sadly no. The limit is 5

Peep: I don't care what the limit is. I'm giving it 6 stars.
Liza: Stop messing up my banners and do something useful.

Peep Rep: Like what?

Liza: Go make a buy link for Amazon sales.

Peep Rep: Okay....I'm back. I made two. One for the ebook and one for a paperback book.

    2. Yes, I thought Jenna's trailer so much better than the average that I asked who did it and had her make my trailers. But now I have to learn to make my own. Sigh!
