I’ve written a prequel to the Scandal series and to make it easy to remember, it is called Scandal’s Prequel. Easy, right? This tells the story of how Miranda and Jeremy—the hero and heroine of the first full book in the series—first got together. It begins in 1806 when they are both lonely and need a friend. Of course that friendship develops into a steamy secret love affair with a bizarre turn of events at the end.

Miranda gets her “happy for now” and they both get their “happily ever after” in Scandal’s Child, the first book in the series.

It’s easy to subscribe  to my quarterly newsletter and the prequel will tell you if the entire series is something you might like to read. You can also purchase the book on Amazon or read it in Kindle Unlimited if you are a subscriber.

Here’s the blurb (and buy link for those who prefer to purchase):

Miranda Carlyle and Jeremy Montague have loved each other since childhood. But Jeremy, eldest son of the Earl of Longley, must marry an heiress and Miranda is the daughter of an impoverished vicar. Worse, her reputation is tainted by her scandalous mother who ran off years ago, abandoning both husband and child.

Driven by loneliness, they meet in secret, sharing their joys and their disappointments. While vowing to keep their encounters platonic, their attraction grows and a deeper relationship is formed until one magical night passion flares and their trysts change to steamy encounters full of love and lust.

Jeremy promises marriage and leaves for London to confront his father. He’s of age. He’ll marry whomever he chooses.

But when weeks pass and Jeremy doesn’t return, Miranda becomes wary. And when she’s lured to their trysting place through a ruse by a virtual stranger, she is paralyzed with fear, because Miranda is hiding an important secret and without Jeremy, her life is going to change forever.


Here’s What Reviewers are Saying…

Scandal’s Deception

Scandal’s Deception is more than a romance novel. The historic descriptions are brilliantly researched and clearly envisioned. I love the emotional bond between the sisters as well as the lustful teasing relationship between Jane and Ralston. I was delighted with the story and with the writing. The ‘Scandal’ series is a great escape!” (Liz Wells)

Scandal’s Child

“This is the first book i have read from this author and I will say that it is not to be missed!!! While this seems to be her first historical romance, I am glad to say it won’t be her last. I eagerly await the next book!!!” (Amazon Reader)

“Pamela Gibson has written a heartwarming tale about love, loss and compassion, and this enduring tale of lost love will tug at the reader’s heartstrings.” Read full review in the 2017 December issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Blood Will Tell

“This book pulled me in from the first scene and didn’t let me go. I haven’t read a good romantic suspense in a while so this was a treat.” (Jessica C.)

It’s a Zin to Tell a Lie

“In these times of chaos and confusion, a book such as this one is the perfect antidote. A story to curl up with and characters that you will come to love (at least most of them!). Pamela’s writing flows at just the right pace and you look forward to each new chapter.” (J. Stubbs)

Plumb Crazy About You

“The writing was fun and spicy and sweet all at once. I can’t believe how disappointed and yet happy I was when it ended. Disappointed because I wanted the story to go on longer, and happy because I absolutely loved the Happily Ever After!” (Marie’s Tempting Reads)

Return of the Fox

“The plot twists were original and fresh, and the ending was satisfying, yet left the door open for the next installment of the series. After reading the first two Mission Belles, I can hardly wait for the next one.” (Cerebral 1)

Shadow of the Fox

“Being a California native, I was very excited to read the ARC for this book. I know the state’s history fairly well, and this story was spot on. The California rancho time period is so rich, and Ms. Gibson paid it great honor. I loved her descriptions of the ranchos, the people, food, language, and clothing. She devoted meticulous care to them all.” (Cerebral_1)

A Kiss of Cabernet 

A Kiss of Cabernet is a deliciously written story in a beautifully captured setting. I liked the historical aspect to the book and the realism of the characters. I was entranced all the way to the end. A great read!” (Liz Wells)
