SCANDAL BEFORE SUNRISE BY SABRINA DARBY
Release Date: September 10, 2015
Abigail Billings is a bad girl. She loves fun and excitement and the sort of wit that flows after a few glasses of wine. And boys, she definitely loves boys. Though three years ago she fled town with scandal on her heels, now she’s back in London. She’s determined to make a respectable and advantageous match before everyone knows that there is nothing behind her father’s title but more scandal. Everything would be going rather well if only The Honorable Elliot Jones weren’t so determined to bring her to ruin.
As the younger son of an earl, Jones did his duty fighting for England and then happily put duty aside. He’s far from ready to settle down. It’s the fast set that draws him in, the one that pairs poetry with wagers and women with gossip––the same gossip that tells him there’s more to the beautiful and painfully straight-laced Abigail than her high neckline suggests.
She’s a contradiction in a pale muslin dress. Behind every modest smile, he sees the sharp gaze, the trapped free spirit. It’s a lark at first to make Abigail crack. But music and moonlight leads to love and romance, and soon Jones wants nothing more than to convince this very scandalous lady to be his most honorable wife.

REVIEW: SCANDAL BEFORE SUNRISE BY SABRINA DARBY
Scandal Before Sunrise, Book 1 of The Weekly Scandal by Sabrina Darby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I didn't want Scandal Before Sunrise to end. Sabrina Darby's blend of comedic drama and scheming trickery is a fun twist on historical romance. Abigail is trouble with a capital "T". Determined to lose that moniker and escape further shame she seeks to change her image. Cleaning up her act has never been so hard. Long hidden truths may be destined to destroy the one chance she has to escape infamy and find happiness. Elliot discovers there is so much more to Abigail behind the mirage she presents to the world. Will his fascination with her prove to be both of their downfalls? I received an ARC of this novella in exchange for an honest review. The allure of the characters and the charm of the story had me breezing through this read. My one complaint would be that the story was not long enough for me. Was sad to see it end.
