Private Scandalby Jenna Bayley-burke
Synopses & Reviews
Once their love was under wraps. Now it’s burning up the sheets.
Three months ago, Megan Carlton had the world on a string. That was before the man she loved took over her family’s hotel business and wiped out a family fortune it had taken generations to build. And before she caught him kissing another woman.
Her only solace: the secrecy of their affair saved the family from public scandal, and kept her embarrassment private. Meanwhile, with a mountain of self-confidence to rebuild, she trades her Manolos and late-night parties for coffee-stained sneakers and early morning barista shifts.
Brandon Knight had everything he ever wanted—then the woman of his dreams disappeared without one word of explanation. When he finds Megan serving coffee, he wonders if the socialite is suffering from amnesia. A hot venti to the chest proves she recognizes him. But she’s got the situation—and him—all wrong. All he has to do now is prove it.

Megan Carlton had the world on a string. Then her boyfriend raided her father’s business and wiped out a century’s worth family reputation and assets. And she caught him kissing another woman. Now she has no job, no money, and a mountain of self confidence to rebuild. Brandon Knight had everything he ever wanted—then the woman of his dreams disappeared without one word of explanation. When he finds Megan working in Pasadena as a barista, he wonders if the socialite heiress is suffering from amnesia. But Megan’s forgotten nothing. More accurately, she’s got it—and him—all wrong. Convincing her he’s her knight in shining armor, not a dirty rotten thief, is only the beginning. Megan’s holding on to her anger with both hands, which proves two things. A, she still loves him. And B, it seems he’s forgotten a few things as well—things that make a little thing like losing her family’s fortune look like chump change…
When Megan’s boyfriend raids her father’s corporation, he destroys her family’s reputation and their fortune. Worse, she catches him kissing another woman. With no job and no money, she trades her Manolos for sneakers and sets out to rebuild her self-confidence. Brandon finds Megan working as a barista, and he wonders if she’s got amnesia. He’s a rescuer, not a raider, but a hot venti to the chest says she’s not buying it. How to convince her she’s wrong, when she’s holding a grudge that makes a little thing like turning her world upside down look like chump change?
About the Author
Jenna Bayley-Burke finds writing bio blurbs strange. Should she mention the blueberry-eyed kids or the high-school-sweetheart husband or the category romance for Mills & Boon or the romance novels for Samhain or the obsession with wine and chocolate? Should she brag on the workshops she gives to writers’ groups or mention her fondness for starting a new story (both reading and writing)? She’s never sure when to stop, so best to leave it at that. If you’re still unbearably curious, you can catch up with what’s new at www.jennabayleyburke.com. Private Scandal is her 8th published title.
