Scandalous Innocent by Juliet Landon
Two women, two generations apart, both on the brink of scandal... Phoebe shared more than her unruly dark curls with the ancestor whose portrait graced the walls of Ham House. Impatient of convention, both had retreated from the excesses of London life to Richmond's leafy beauty. Yet neither had enjoyed peace for long. Their retreat posed a challenge to Society's most notorious rakes - a certain Viscount Ransome seemed set on making Phoebe his own. But secrets and passion were part of the fabric of Ham House and Phoebe had learnt from her rebellious ancestor. She planned to bring the arrogant Viscount to his knees...
The book is advertised as being set at the National Trust's property, Ham House. The house does feature but not as much as I was expecting.
At first I couldn't get into the book. I wasn't sure about having a mix of fiction and non-fiction but once I got over that I really enjoyed it. I thought it was well written.
