Kissing a rake in full view of the stable boy. Unchaperoned picnics with no one to see what happens. Someone to show her things young ladies should never do with handsome, unmarried dukes...Julia Bishop would give anything to have these things happen outside of her imagination.

Isolated from Victorian society, Julia never meets anyone who could bring those fantasies to life. Until a devastatingly handsome man arrives at her sister’s estate—the new Duke of Albermarle.

Jasper DeVere left London to privately grieve his grandfather’s death. Julia is just the distraction he needs, and she wants no future with him, just right now. When their all-out affair slips dangerously close to something more, they both know society would never allow Julia to become a duchess. And the queen would never approve a marriage. With Jasper’s inevitable return to London, Jasper and Julia can go back to their separate lives or risk everything to choose each other.

#ownvoices review of A Scandal By Any Other Name by Kimberly Bell
Rating: 5/5

Jasper DeVere isn’t the man he wants to be yet but the world wants him to be a Duke, like his grandfather before him. Julia Bishop is the kind of woman she wants to be but the world won’t let her because of her disability. W ...more

I am so pleased to have read this book. I was a little hesitant to request it because I had such mixed feelings about the first book in the series, but I’m so glad I decided to go ahead and request it. It is well plotted, the writing is exc ...more

I’m going to run out of superlatives to describe how good this book is. It is, quite simply, the best historical romance I’ve read in ages - and I’ve read quite a few good ones, as you’ll see from my review history.

Lady Julia Bishop is the eldest daughter of a wealthy earl, and as such, she should h ...more

By Dill October 31, 2017

This is the first book I've read in this series, provided to me by the publisher. I was thoroughly impressed by the heroine and the representation of her disability/illness (Although I know a bit about the condition, I'm not an expert on spina bifida and can't speak specifically about the representa ...more

5 Stars!! I LOVED this book!! I walk with a limp and have a lot of scars & I felt like I understood where the main character, Julia, was coming from with her fears & insecurities! I feel the same way! I connected with Julia and I really enjoyed her story! I haven’t read Amelia & Nicholas’s story yet ...more

By Amy ~ Love At 1st Read January 03, 2018

I fell in love with Jasper and Julia in the first Tale of Two Sisters. I adored Julia and her sister Amelia’s relationship. They were both so impish and naughty. The kind of girls I’d want to be friends with. Jasper was such fun in the first book. Such a schemer and a flirt! I knew immediately that ...more

By Erin January 17, 2018

I loved Julia and Jasper!! The plot was not quite as compelling as the previous book in this series, but I think the character development made up for it. These two were so perfectly written for one another. ...more

By Norah December 15, 2017

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. A Scandal By Any Other Name is the second book in Kimberly Bell’s A Tale of Two Sisters series. They are quite steamy romances set in the early Victorian era. The first book is The Importance Of Being Scandalous. Kimberly B ...more

By Dot January 09, 2018

This is the second book in the “Two Sisters” series and I loved it. After being introduced to Jasper and Julia in the first book I couldn’t wait for them to get together in this book and I wasn’t disappointed. Julia has suffered a debilitating condition all her life but instead of giving in she figh ...more

So last year there were posts going around about The Importance of Being Scandalous which was a historical romance with a character that has spina bifida. Turns out, the character with spina bifida was the sister and the romance did not include her one bit. I was disappointed especially because I th ...more

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

This novel could’ve been entitled How to Tick Off a Monarch, because Queen Victoria has more than one reason to be displeased with her cousin, Jasper DeVere. Since his father passed away when he was only six, Jasper has lived the majority of his life as the heir to his grandfather’s title of the Duk ...more

(1) Live life to the fullest.

(2) Get out while you can.

Permanent has no place in his life. Until he meets the one woman who stops him in his tracks. Julia is a dreamer. Excitement is what she craves, but life had other plans for her. When a playboy heir to a dukedom walks ...more

I had just finished reading “The Importance of being Scandalous” which I had purchased when I had the opportunity to read “A Scandal by any other Name” so I was thrilled.

This story unfolds slowly at first, as the H is overwhelmed with grief at the loss of his grandfather and his own inheritance of his title and dukedom.. He escapes to the country.

By Anna January 08, 2018

A wonderful story. From page one on the only problem I had was somewhat with the pacing. I loved her characters. I enjoyed the fact the heroine was handicapped. I liked the way the author handled the handicap as well as the way she wrote the heroine and hero in personality and emotions. Each time I ...more

By Romancebooksandmore March 05, 2019

I liked this book in that it talked about a disabled heroine (though one that honestly wouldn't have really been alive in that time with that disability) though the author does discuss that at the end of the book.
I like the hero and how much fun both he and the Heroine have together. the one thing ...more
