Early Review: A Scandalous Deal by Joanna Shupe

Apr 6, 2018

Joanna Shupe returns with another unforgettable novel set in the glittering world of New York City’s Gilded Age…

They call her Lady Unlucky…

With three dead fiancés, Lady Eva Hyde has positively no luck when it comes to love. She sets sail for New York City, determined that nothing will deter her dream of becoming an architect, certainly not an unexpected passionate shipboard encounter with a mysterious stranger. But Eva’s misfortune strikes once more when she discovers the stranger who swept her off her feet is none other than her new employer.

Or is it Lady Irresistible?

Phillip Mansfield reluctantly agrees to let the fiery Lady Eva oversee his luxury hotel project while vowing to keep their relationship strictly professional. Yet Eva is more capable—and more alluring—than Phillip first thought, and he cannot keep from drawing up a plan of his own to seduce her.

When a series of onsite “accidents” makes it clear someone wants Lady Unlucky to earn her nickname, Phillip discovers he’s willing to do anything to protect her—even if it requires A SCANDALOUS DEAL.


A Scandalous Deal is sure to make you tingle! Shupe delivers another outstanding adventure against the backdrop of New York. Shupe's ability to bring to life a time of wondrous creativity and awe is superb. Eva and Phillip have an undeniable attraction that drive this story. They are wonderfully paired and complement the entire story. I love how Shupe brings to life strong women who are over shadowed by the men of those times. Phillip is a sexy and powerful male hero with a well-known temper. That being said I wish Phillip had been as intense as Julius in the first book in the series. A Scandalous Deal is an exciting story start to finish. I can't wait to read more from Shupe.
