The Suffragette Scandal (Brothers Sinister #4) by Courtney Milan

An idealistic suffragette...

Miss Frederica "Free" Marshall has put her heart and soul into her newspaper, known for its outspoken support of women's rights. Naturally, her enemies are intent on destroying her business and silencing her for good. Free refuses to be at the end of her rope...but she needs more rope, and she needs it now.

...a jaded scoundrel...

Edward Clark's aristocratic family abandoned him to die in a war-torn land, so he survived the only way he could: by becoming a rogue and a first-class forger. When the same family that left him for dead vows to ruin Miss Marshall, he offers his help. So what if he has to lie to her? She's only a pawn to use in his revenge.

...and a scandal seven years in the making.

But the irrepressible Miss Marshall soon enchants Edward. By the time he realizes that his cynical heart is hers, it's too late. The only way to thwart her enemies is to reveal his scandalous past...and once the woman he loves realizes how much he's lied to her, he'll lose her forever.


5 ‘Huzzah! Suffragettes!’ stars!!!

The Suffragette Scandal is the fourth installment in Courtney Milan’s brilliant Brothers Sinister series. It’s fun, romantic, thought provoking and passionate. It's a tribute to the women of old who blazed trails, conquered new frontiers, and at great cost to themselves paved the way for their modern day sisters to enjoy the rights and freedoms we do!

My review…

Courtney Milan is, without a doubt, a truly gifted teller of tales. Book after book she takes pages from history and brings them to life, and in doing so pays tribute to the women whose names we may never know, but whose stories deserve to be told – and the men who love them!

Freddy “Free” Marshall is an amazing woman. She’s strong, insightful, determined, and quite the forward thinker. I love her perseverance and dedication and passion to and for the things she believes in, and her unconditional love for those around her.

Edward Clark! What a wonderful, tortured, stubborn man. In the beginning it’s the need for revenge that drives him, but once he meets Free that drive is fueled by a fierce need to protect her. His brilliant, calculating mind makes for some exciting twists and turns to the story.

The bottom line…

If you’re a fan of historical romance and are looking for stories that make you think while making you smile, then look no further than Courtney Milan. She will make you laugh, make you sigh, and maybe even make you cry, but one thing for certain… she will make you fall in love again and again and again.

My thanks to Netgalley and Courtney Milan for providing me with a copy of The Suffragette Scandal.
