A Scandalous Deal by Joanna Shupe
Joanna Shupe returns with another unforgettable novel set in the glittering world of New York City’s Gilded Age…
A Scandalous Deal
The Four Hundred #2
Lady Eva Hyde is an ambitious, intelligent, and caring young woman who wishes to leave the past behind and focus on the future she envisions for herself and for her father’s architectural legacy. Meeting Phillip on the boat to New York wasn’t part of her future plans, but they forged a connection, one that becomes problematic when they discover each other’s true identity.
I really enjoyed A Scandalous Deal by Joanna Shupe. The characters were intriguing, the story engaging, and the writing utterly compelling. Shupe created a fun and dynamic tale with high stakes and relatable doubts, fears, motivations, and ambitions.
The characters were fascinating to follow. They drew me in right from the start, easily carrying me through the book to the end. Angst, humor, secrets, lies, and drama mingled perfectly with witty banter, sharp characterization, and wonderful storytelling, giving historical romance readers a truly delightful read.
If you haven’t yet had the chance to read Joanna Shupe, I highly recommend checking out A Scandalous Deal. It’s a fantastic story, and one I enjoyed immensely.

They call her Lady Unlucky…
With three dead fiancés, Lady Eva Hyde has positively no luck when it comes to love. She sets sail for New York City, determined that nothing will deter her dream of becoming an architect, certainly not an unexpected passionate shipboard encounter with a mysterious stranger. But Eva’s misfortune strikes once more when she discovers the stranger who swept her off her feet is none other than her new employer.
Or is it Lady Irresistible?
Phillip Mansfield reluctantly agrees to let the fiery Lady Eva oversee his luxury hotel project while vowing to keep their relationship strictly professional. Yet Eva is more capable—and more alluring—than Phillip first thought, and he cannot keep from drawing up a plan of his own to seduce her.
When a series of onsite “accidents” make it clear someone wants Lady Unlucky to earn her nickname, Phillip discovers he’s willing to do anything to protect her—even if it requires a scandalous deal…
From A SCANDALOUS DEAL:
“Yes…. I will.”
His nostrils flared ever so slightly.
“Why?” he asked, brows lowered in confusion. “Why now?”
She understood perfectly. A few days ago, she’d insisted on professional distance. Yet how could she explain it? They were high above the city, just the two of them, in a cocoon of warm July air. “Does it matter?”
“It does to me. I’d like to know why you’ve changed your mind.”
Because she wanted him, wanted him to do the same wicked things he’d done on the ship. The insides of her thighs grew slick just thinking on it. She went with a coy answer instead. “Isn’t that what women do?”
One side of his mouth kicked up. “Most women, perhaps. However, you’re not most women. There’s no one else who can begin to compare.”
