    1. I have no real strong feelings either way on this book. It started off super funny then sort of fizzled when the sexual tension was cut short and replaced by a non-committal self-imposed internal conflict. I'm not sure I have it in me to write a full-bodied review.The book opens strongly with a few letters back and forth between the younger Olivia Carsington in England and Peregrine Dalmay, Earl of Lisle, who is in Egypt. Olivia's letter are true to the personality of the child we met back in Lo [...]

    2. Probably more like 3.5 stars but I'm rounding up because of Loretta Chase Bonus Fun Points. Give the woman her due, even when the book isn't that good, it's still damned entertaining. I was rooting for a Lisle and Olivia book (see my ridiculously gushing Lord Perfect review) and here it is. In some respects very satisfying. I love that Olivia is still OTT and clever and adventurous. Lisle is still a balancing influence to her and it worked nicely (although perhaps it didn't quite live up to my e [...]

    3. I've given this an A for narration and a B for content at AudioGals. I suppose that's technically 4.5 stars but Kate Reading's narration pushes it into the 5 star bracketWhen offered the choice of reviewing this or Not Quite a Lady, I immediately made grabby hands in the direction of Last Night’s Scandal because I’m a fan of the childhood-friends-who-meet-again-after-a-long-separation-and-think – “wow, you’re really hot now you’re all grown up!” – trope.That is, in essence, the p [...]

    4. When I read Lord Perfect, the two adventurous youngsters, Peregrine Dalmay (Earl of Lisle) and Olivia Wingate, really captured my heart. I thought they deserved their own story and I am delighted that Loretta Chase agreed with me because her latest book, LAST NIGHT'S SCANDAL is their story. Wonderfully romantic, deliciously sexy and extremely funny, it is a joy to read.At the end of Lord Perfect, Lisle goes off to Egypt with his aunt and uncle to pursue his studies. Olivia, meanwhile, is learnin [...]

    5. Peregrine, Earl of Lisle, and Olivia Carsington have finally gotten their own story. We first met them in Lord Perfect when they went on a Noble Quest to help Olivia's mother. Lisle was less enthusiastic about the adventure, but when he realized that Olivia was doing it with or without him he went along too. As a child Olivia was a dramatic, manipulative creature who wanted to experience grand adventures and become a knight and go on Noble Quests. Not much has changed since she was a child. She [...]

    6. It's fun to see the children from Lord Perfect all grown up but still recognizable. As usual, Kate Reading's narration is pitch-perfect, causing me to bump this up from the 3.5 for the Kindle version to a legit 4 stars for the audio.

    7. This story had some great moments but the heroine was just a bit too silly and annoying at times, the hero said some really mean things and did not apologise, and the heroine was too besotted to push him for that apology. Kind of frustrating tale, although the final chapters were fun and action-packed.Great narration as always, with some fun Scottish accents.Not anywhere near as much fun as Rupert Carsington and Dahpne's story, that's for sure. But still fun.

    8. Okay, here's the thing: I love seeing long-time friends/acquaintances suddenly realize their feelings for one another are more than friendly. I just rarely see it done well, and this book is no exception.Here's why: There's a formula in romanceat which brings them together vs. that which keeps them apart. In most long-time friend scenarios, once they start seeing one another as attractive members of the opposite sex, the "that which keeps them apart" element of the formula is weakened. In other [...]

    9. Peregrine Dalmay, the Earl of Lisle has returned to England on and off over the past ten years while studying in Egypt. It's been five years since he has been back in England. He finds his parents to be ridiculous and emotional. They have become fed up with his heartless nature toward them and his siblings. And when Lisle's father threatens to cut him off unless he travels to Scotland and supervises the renovations of the alleged haunted Gorewood Castle that his family owns, Lisle is backed into [...]

    10. The story of the kids, from Lord Perfect, and this plot would have made a better novella than a novel. I enjoyed this very much, but Loretta Chase is probably incapable of writing anything I would not enjoy - I loved the dialogue, the small snippets of interaction between characters ( oh the valet and the maid, I so wanted more.). And the old ladies are indescritable. BUT and this is a very big but, the relationships are not nearly as complex and interesting as in her other books ( though the on [...]

    11. Although I love a good hero as much - sometimes more - than the next girl, it's really the heroines who make or break stories for me. The most delicious hero in the world doesn't mean crap if he's with a TSTL heroine. Not only do I hate the heroine, but I start to question the herowhat's wrong with him that he's with this awful girl? What does he see in her? As always Chase's writing is fabulous. She really excels at dialogue and creating beautiful imagery with her words. I kept reading right up [...]

    12. 3.5 estrellasCreo que mis expectativas con este libro eran muy altas porque es el que menos me ha gustado de esta maravillosa serie. la protagonistas. Olivia, a veces era muy insoportable, y además me parecio un poco aburrido, esperaba más :/. aunque me gustó como terminó todo al final para estos dos!!

    13. In this book we have Lisle (seriously who is Peregrine Dalmay???) and Olivia Wingate-Carsington, the hellions who stole hearts, back with puberty-enhanced genitalia to steal each other's. Hearts. And genitalia. 1. Thiswas not quite what I wanted. The reasons for not being together were foolish, especially in light of how easily they justdissolved. Olivia's fear of disappearing into marriage was poorly founded in light of her familial and ancestral situations and Lisle's passion for Egypt felt in [...]

    14. Well, I didn't like this series and this book in particular as much as I wished. I liked this much better than the last book, but had similar problems with it. The characters' objections didn't make a lot of sense to me and they seemed to be taken care of too easily.Olivia's objections especially didn't seem to fit the series this was a part of. Marriage is dreary for women? But her family is full of happy marriages! Women don't get adventures? But she has an aunt in Egypt having adventures! One [...]

    15. Loretta Chase is my favorite romance author in the world and this book reminded me of why. Olivia and Lisle were both so appealing and wonderful and perfect for each other (Olivia was that rare and beautiful thing, a strong-willed impulsive heroine with occasionally poor judgement who still gets to be taken seriously as a smart, capable human being, and Lisle was the kind of geek who shares random factoids and makes them interesting by his interest in them), and the conflict was so brilliant I w [...]

    16. This book is a crying shame of a wasted opportunity. I was looking forward to seeing the old friends reconnect. Instead, I got a bunch of fighting and stupidity with a side of moron. Lisle is the stupidest "smart" guy ever to grace the printed page. I got so sick of his idiot rages that by the time I was half-way through the book and he blew right through the twentieth opportunity to apologize like the great dipwad he is I was just done. I'm sorry, but he's so busy slamming around in self-righte [...]

    17. *Happy sigh* When I first heard Chase was writing Peregrine and Olivia's story I was thrilled, but I did wonder if it would live up to the hype. I shouldn't have worried. I was wearing a big goofy grin the whole time I was reading. She aged Olivia and Lisle skillfully, keeping the traits they'd had in childhood, but allowing them to grow into them, change, adapt. Their pairing was inevitable, but it was so delicious to see them negotiate and bicker and realize just how much they needed each othe [...]

    18. It was so good I could cry first. Afterwards, I slowly felt like crying for completely different reasons¤sad sighIt started out strong, with a frightfully entertaining exchange of letters between the two main characters through the years that they had been apart. I was only 20 pages in and I already had some quotes written down and enjoying every second of what I THOUGHT was to come. Oh, and Chase did a perfect job of keeping me entertained for over half of the book, while perfectly stringing m [...]

    19. Finally getting around to writing a review for this.The thing that struck me the most about this book was how very well Chase matured Lisle and Olivia. She kept their basic personalities and their relationship intact but allowed both them and it to grow in what felt like a natural way.Olivia is still the overly dramatic, somewhat impulsive creature with a natural tendency toward larceny. Lisle is still the pragmatic, level headed person who is quite out of sync with his parents. They are still f [...]

    20. Így első, gyors olvasás után azt mondanám, hogy kissé leült a sorozat. A harmadik rész alapján egy kicsit több izgalomra számítottam. Olivia jó, hozza a formáját. Ami azt illeti Lisle is, mégis szerintem egy kísértetjárta skót kastélyban több lehetőség rejlik, mint amennyit Chase kihoz belőle. A humora viszont továbbra is remek, és Olivia temperamentuma mellé bejön a dédnagyi két barátnőjének szabadszájúsága is (no, semmi "nem szalonképes" nincs benne:). Bel [...]

    21. 3 1/2 stars rounding upThis started strong then just.leveled out for me. It wasn't bad but it didn't capture me like some of Chase's stories do.I really liked all the characters, especially Ladies Cooper and Withcote. Even the servants were interesting. The plot was pretty good, it kept me engaged well enough. Unfortunately, the emotions fell flat and the "adventure" was just ok.I also felt a little cheated by the lack of dialogue between Lisle and Olivia. I think the story would have been bette [...]

    22. Reasons I love this book:"You're not supposed to jump up from the bed two minutes after a man tells you he loves you," he said. "Don't you know anything?"and"You must marry me."She stared for a time at her collection of secrets. "I think I must," she said. I wanted to be self-sacrificing and brave but it doesn't agree with me."

    23. god i wanted SO MUCH MORE from this book but i think overly dramatic people who scream a lot but never communicate is just not my thing :(

    24. Yazarın bir önce okuduğum kitabına aşşırı benzediğini görünce yazarın tarzını görmüş oldum. Kurgu sırasını dahi anladım. Tek kitabı kaldı bizde çevrilen onu bir süre sonra okuyacağım çünkü ortalarında inanılmaz sıkılmıştım bunun.

    25. Peregrine Dalmay, the Earl of Lisle has returned from Egypt for the celebration of his Grandmother’s birthday. His plans were to stay as briefly as possible then make a quick exit back to his first love - Egypt. Naturally, it would be nice to see his pen-pal Lady Olivia Wingate-Carsington who has kept him in touch with goings ons and peccadilloes his parents and she herself has gotten in and out of over the years. Lady Olivia accepts all of this in stride believing that with her blood lines, w [...]

    26. Solid and entertaining though I did find myself bored and skimming at times. I expected a tad more humour. Though the running gag about her devil granted bosoms did amuse. Not my favorite Chase, although it is a sweet story and it was nice to wrap up the road trip tale we first met the characters in with this, their ultimate love story. Overall it was pretty vanilla, no spice and minimal true conflict. Characters were inoffensive. I liked the butler, personal maid and valet more than the mains, [...]

    27. The story of two childhood friends who are now all grown up and find their friendship changing.Olivia and Lisle are opposites in many ways, with Olivia being impulsive and hot-headed, while Lisle is logical and methodical. The two of them met when Olivia dragged Lisle into one of her adventures, and their friendship has endured throughout the years, mostly through letters exchanged between them while Lisle is in Egypt.This part of their story begins with Lisle recently returned and manipulated b [...]

    28. I really enjoyed this one. Having a quick peek at the hero and heroine, whom we last saw as adolescents is a great concept, and they are such interesting characters that it was a very pleasant story.There are some wonderful little touches, such as the smutty old biddy chaperones, who spend their time comparing stories about various lovers and ogling the male servants, and also some of the little descriptions of fashions. I do like to know what heroines are wearing, although sometimes I find that [...]

    29. Olivia’s self-proclaimed calling card.★★★★ ½ stars! What an entertaining book this is! Olivia Wingate-Carsington’s off on another tangent adventure Noble Quest and Peregrine Dalmay, Earl of Lisle, is in pursuit. Only this time she is no longer a skinny, awkward, freckle-faced little girl; now she’s a real stunner who is always causing a scandal. Olivia manages to prompt Lisle into fisticuffs, dash after her to Scotland, drive him crazy by parading around in a pair of pants, defy l [...]
