Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown

From the back: On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealth family. And she never forgave their spoiled son, who with his two friends changed her life forever. Someday, somehow, she'd return ... exacting a just revenge, fleeing herself from her enemies' grasp, and, perhaps, fulfilling a lost promise of love.

My Thoughts: I rushed to the library after work to grab another audiobook. I saw a Sandra Brown and grabbed it. It was Breath of Scandal. After reading (or rather listening to) Chill Factor I was expecting a thriller, but got an engrossing contemporary romance. It was not your typical feel good romance. I liked this story of a strong woman overcoming and making a good life for herself and her child, as well as getting revenge on those that hurt her. I liked that we learned about the main romantic interest and his life before he showed up in Jade's life. I did think it was very unrealistic to take her child, the product of the rape, back to that town to risk him being hurt, but it all turned out good in the end.
