Last Night's Scandal makes the lists

Given the heavy competition this month, I was amazed and thrilled to learn that Last Night's Scandal made the New York Times Mass Market list (at #32), the USA Today Bestseller list (at #81), and Borders (at #9).  This is pretty exciting, considering the lists cover only a few days since the book came out.

Lisle & Olivia's story has also received some really nice reviews at Smart Bitches Trashy Books and All About Romance

That's enough bragging for now.  We will soon return to our irregularly scheduled blogging.

I've been reading the reviews. They're awesome! But then, I didn't doubt it ;o)

You have a true winner again. Congrats, Loretta.

I just started reading it last night, and it is SO good! I'm trying to use it as my "motivation" to get some things done today before I finish reading it. . .

I'm too weak! I have to go read it now!

Congratulations, Loretta. I bought the ebook edition as soon as it was out and thoroughly enjoyed Olivia & Lisle's love story. Lots of laugh out loud scenes. I'm glad that it is getting good reviews and made the lists.

Congratulations, Loretta for the good reviews and being on the bestseller lists. I have been scanning the lists myself before going to your site and was heartened to know that your book made it. For reviews, the Dear Author blog/website too has a review on your book and the three J's (Jane, Janine and Jayne) all seemed to like it very much.

Enjoyed the book tremendously though with a minor quibble. While the Engrav on Olivia's letter was further clarified in the book, the hint about her dropping the Wingate name due to what her paternal uncle (Jack's brother maybe?) said exactly was never explored nor her relationship with them. At least we know that Fosbury left her a fortune so we can conclude that she was acknowledged by the family and probably managed to wrap the Earl around her little finger. But really, just a minor quibble. All in all, a great funny book!

Thank you, Susie! I'm relieved it's such a small quibble--and I am delighted that you read the book so very closely--and remembered details from the previous book! But yes, alas, I see what you mean. One of those pesky loose ends, which I hate to leave hanging. But it happens. I think this is because of all the banging my head against the wall I do. Things in my brain get lost. Anyway, in my mind, it was Jack's brother, not his father, who made disparaging remarks about Bathsheba. And it was Jack's father who left Olivia the fortune--and that (the brother's jealousy & resentment) was what led to the disparaging remark. Really, it was in my mind...what's left of it.

I know you don't do sequels but Olivia and Lisle are so ripe for it! I love these characters and just keep smiling to myself about the trouble they are going to get into, in Egypt. Thanks for such a great book.

I apologize for taking so long to tell you how much I adore this book. I had it on my calendar to buy the day it was released, immediately commenced reading it, then (of course) read it again. I cannot tell you how much I looked forward to this story and you certainly did not disappoint. No one writes a story the way you do. You (and your characters) just keep getting better and better! No pressure, but I can't wait for the next one!
