Review:

After reading Nicholas I was interested in getting to know Ethan, the estranged brother, more. Ethan: Lord of Scandals was another great read. Ethan and Alice both have their secrets, both have dark times in their past, and both are so kind and caring with each other that they are great.

Ethan was sent off to school when his father found him in bed with his brother during one of their late night chats. The boys were not doing anything wrong, but Ethan's father thought he was corrupting Nicholas so he sent Ethan away. Only he gets sent to a not very nice place, where boys can do what they want and no one really stops them. Ethan doesn't have an easy go of it, some things happened there that still haunt him, and he won't talk about it with anyone. He is embarrassed by what happened and doesn't want anyone to know. Even though it was a long time ago, it is still affecting him. That and his marriage to his late wife which I was really curious to see what that was all about.

Alice is so sweet and kind with the children. When Ethan hires her to be his sons governess he is not very active in their lives. Alice quickly changes that and gets Ethan to see how he should spend more time with his boys. She gets him to see how they are really good boys, how much he loves them and how much he loves spending time with them. He hasn't been very active in their lives until this point, didn't know how other people have hurt them, and he really just grows into this great father in this story. He would do anything for his boys, and their governess, by the end.

Alice has her own secrets she is keeping. Ethan knows something happened to her, something that makes her hip hurt and causes her trouble at times. Something involving her sister and the reason why she is hiding out as a governess instead of being with her own family. Really when you find out what happened to the both of them, and the situations that arise at the end, you just feel for them. They are both still trying to deal with their past, but together they can be even better. Together they can be a happy family. Really a great read.
